I could never abandon my original Android device, so I am on the Sprint HTC Hero subforum too. Finally, my B&N Nook Color leads me to that subforum.
Can't completely abandon the evo 4g sub forum. Never forget your first...lol

I really, really, really wanted to LOVE the Evo 3D. After playing with it, though, the 3D is, IMO, "meh". There are a slew of 2.1/3.0 sense ROMs out there now for the Evo 4g and I've tried most of them.

I just can't see a phone on the near-term horizon that makes me think "gee, I wish I could start a new 2-year gig". I have an upgrade in my pocket just burning a hole, but nothing ropes me in.

Until the themes, mods, roms, tweaks, utilities, etc., are rock-solid on the 3D, I'm firmly settled on my Evo 4G. Perhaps something new will come along, but I really don't want the 3D features. I'd prefer a stellar display, 1080p recording, and an 8mp camera coupled with a dual core processor.

Right now, I have mikg 2.41 along with v6 supercharger on it and it runs very, very quickly. I'm very happy with how well it works...

I recently became a sprint costumer and instead of getting the new EVO 3d I decided to get the EVO 4g. As of right now I really enjoy the Evo 4g, its smooth and vibrant but I have 30 days to return or exhange the phone if i'm not fully satisfied with the Evo 4g, I'm hoping that the Galaxy S2 will be on sprint before my 30 days.

One thing that really bugs me is that the EVO 4g cant be rooted if your on gingerbread....

I wouldn't bet on the SGS2 being available within your 30 days. The Photon 4G gets released this coming Sunday (28th online through Spring for Premier customers eligibile for upgrade).

I'd imagine there'll be at least a 30 day gap between the Photon 4G release and the SGS 2 release, so my projection would be 8/31 or later for the SGS 2 release.

Quite honestly, I hope I am too because then I'd be able to go into the store to check out the phone and see if it lives up to the hype.

Thing is, based on past history on Sprint's top phone releases, I'd be shocked if it was anytime sooner. All of the most recently released phones that are considered the "top" phones have been released past 30 days form one another:

Nexus S>EVO 3D>Photon 4G

There are some EVO 3D owners that had to call in because they want to switch to the Photon, but the Photon is getting released a few days to a week after from when their 30 days expires.

lol would this be possible...

Evo 4g (thirty days)> Evo 3d (thirty days) > S2? can you do that?

I have always just waited on my upgrade until a phone I wanted came out, but... this might be an option, though a sneaky less ethical one.

Sprint only allows one (1) time 30 day exchange. I'm not sure how Best Buy runs their policy. To me, it's seemed like they're more leniant.

I'm keeping this until a version of android won't run on it, or more likely, until there's a version of android that won't run on it that is so much better than froyo/gingerbread that I think it's worth spending $200 on a phone.

This EVO is pretty much everything I wanted.

Oh, I wanted to mention, my Samsung Moment that I got on release day, and gave to a friend after getting my EVO, finally died last week. The charging port finally stopped working. Turns out, putting the charge port on the side of the phone is a stupid idea.

EVO 4G is going to be done as of October
Sprint Killing Off Several Android Devices in the Coming Months | Processor Benchmark

That's actually good news though. For those of you that weren't eligible for upgrade, if you end up having to get a replacement phone, you just might get a 3D or an opportunity to upgrade prior to your listed eligibility.

Granted, I don't support people breaking their phones on purpose to possibly get an upgrade, but I know there are people that were having issues with their EVO 4G since the Gingerbread updates, so just keep this in mind that once you get past October, you might be in a good position to get a different phone without having to use your upgrade.

As long as I get Free Wireless Tethering on my EVO, I am keeping it active. I have 10 year tenure and can upgrade every year, but unless I can get Free Wireless Tethering, I am NOT giving up this phone. Hopefully Hesse's big announment is WiMax2 with better penetration. Then will upgrade my phone, unless Sprint gets the SGS2. I use Tethering on my Xoom and 3DS Alot.

After dealing with Motorola 's BS with the Xoom, there is NO WAY I WOULD TOUCH A MOTO PHONE (Photon) , especially with Blur. MOTO is off my list for life.

You can get free wireless tethering on any phone you root, iirc.

for those that blindly jumped to the Photon - do you miss your EVO at all?

i've read lots of bitching about the Photon's window screen display.

Only one thing from the EVO 4G (turn off shutter sound capability). Other than that, I love the MoPho! For me, there are just so many noticable upgrades over the EVO4G that I can't really imagine going back to it.

Even the Motorola Photon specific accessories are better than HTC's renditions on the EVO 4G (e.g. car dock and HD dock).

I definitely understand the complaints about the MoPho's screen. The "screen door" affect is more apparent on visually bright colors, but it's by NO means a downgrade or deal breaker for me. The EVO 4G's screen might not have shown that, but it's still visually clear enough for my needs that it doesn't bother me at all and definitely doesn't bother me as much as the EVO 3D screen.

I looked at the Photon. After the Moment, I can't get another phone with the charger port on the side. If you use the phone while on the charger at all, you're going to put stress on that usb port, and it'll break sooner than it should. That's what killed my Moment.

port needs to be on bottom of the phone.

I was confused by what you were saying at first, but now I understand.

You mean, if you talk on the phone or use it to browse the internet and put physical stress on the phone, it'll damage the USB port.

But I'm not sure that theory is the only possible way the USB port can get damaged. If you look in the EVO 4g forums, there are a ton of reports where people had to get their USB port replaced and/or get their phone replaced because their usb port went bad. And that port is on the bottom of the phone.

i don't like this either but i think it's the future. i think manufacturers will put the port on the side so you can charge and view it sideways in a dock to watch movies and use it as a alarm clock etc. let's hope i'm wrong but HTC changed this from the EVO to the EVO 3D so that may be the direction they are going. i prefer the bottom port too. but who knows perhaps my opinion will change after usage. we tend to like what we know.

I'll keep my E4G until something seriously better comes along from HTC. I've had too many problems with Motorola and Samsung phones in the past, and the E3D isn't a big enough improvement to make me switch. For now, the E4G still handles whatever I throw at it!

I agree! The only Sense aspect I like is the Mail App. I think it is far superior looking then the Gmail App.

You can always look into rooting the phone Then you could run a pure AOSP rom just like the Nexus S.

Or try a different launcher, such as ADW, LauncherPro or Go from the android market. Might be a good alternative to the Sense overlay

EVO has already been handed down to my secondary line in favor of the MoPho. I thought I would miss the EVO, but I truly don't (as good of a phone as I felt it was and still is).

When my contract is up with Sprint, I am considering switching to Verizon. I would like to try the Iphone 5. I have been with Sprint for over 10 yrs and I am unhappy that they still jacked off with the 4g service, but charged you. They false advertised it for so long. That's foul. I will have to see what phones are well above the market for my taste and usage.

I'm keeping my Evo until the HTC Vigor comes out on Verizon- then I'm out! Sprint voided my contract a year ago, due to having horrible service where I live. I've got my eye on the Vigor- once it hits, I'm done with Sprint, never to return.

Well that time has finally come. Now I'm starting to look at other phones for an upgrade. It's going to come down to the Epic 4G Touch or the next Nexus with 4.0. Who knows or maybe I'll wait to see what's on the horizon for 2012. I love my EVO. It's without a doubt the best phone I ever had. But even the greatest has to retire someday.

I think the time has come for me. I've had the Evo since day one and have absolutely loved it.

Thinking about the Nexus Prime or iPhone 5. Just waiting to see what they're all about.

Still using my EVO4G from near release, rooted with Gingerbread and Sense 2.0. I upgraded a bunch of new sales phones to the 3D. I don't really see a need for the 3d features, but the dual processor is nice. The side mount usb could be argued but the 4g went through this on a few friends phones as well. I just don't see any other phones on the market that would change my mind. I used to let the employees pick their phones, eventually I weened them off anything but the android phones as choices, no apple/blackberry(bes crap),palm, windows6.1, then slowly no touchpad models only touchscreen. The only thing I deal with on these phones anymore is the numbnuts dropping their phones and breaking them, and that is how I want it to be. Tired of troubleshooting fixes for 5 different phone models each with their own quirks and complaints from users. The evo phones we've had have been rock solid. No more complaints that the phone can't get $hit done and needs rebooting everyday. They all deal with the battery issues, that is part of owning a smart phone. You want battery power go buy a flip phone. This winter I will evaluate the latest line of phones and see if there is anything worth switching to again. It's going to have to be something significant though. I think the only manufacturer I would switch to is Motorola, just not impressed with samsung or LG's offerings. I don't care if Sprint gets iphone 5, I'm not paying the premium price for something that will be obsolete after 1 year with a battery that can't be changed.

I have had my Evo for about 15 months (ever since it came out) and it totally changed the way I look at (smart) phones now. It's a great phone. I hardly use it as an actual phone now. I use it for the camera, text messages, calender events, e-mail, GPS - works fantastic, mp3's, internet, etc., everybody who complains about battery life, that's your own problem. There are ways to correct that. I bough two extended Seidio 3500 mah batteries and go 30-40 hours now on one charge with medium usage. Can go 2 plus days on light use. When one is running low, I just pop the other in fully charged and charge the other one on a wall charger I have. I NEVER have to use my car charger but I have one. Doing this made the phone everything it should be. I never have to go running around looking for a place to plug in my phone. A little thicker and heavier so what I now can use it the way I want to use it. It's not just a phone, it's a portable personal computer that can also make phone calls. I have thought about getting the Photon or the Samsung Galaxy S2 but my contract is not up until next April. I will look at the phones available at that time until then I have nothing to say but good things about my EVO. I pay $72 a month because of my company discount, can't really complain there. I do hate that Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon lock you in with two-year contracts. That really bothers me. For that reason I have really started looking in to Metro PCS, Boost Mobile, and Straight talk. The unlimited plans for around $45-50 is really amazing and they don't male you sign contracts or have early termination fees. Honestly what other business makes you pay them money to stop doing business with them???? I'll stop talking now.

Until Sprint gets LTE or I leave Sprint most likely. Its still a damn powerful phone and the developer community hasnt abandoned it for the new hot shit. ROMs, updates and enhancements are still trickling out so even though HTC wants to move on there is still plenty of life left in the girl.

With Synergy Ive got a lot of the enhanced features the 3D had anyway but without the waste of space the 3d tech is.

The EVO works great for talking, videos, music, and wireless tether. I mean yea its scrolls a little slower than the latest phone but who cares.

I love how the media has everyone hyped into believing they need a super fast “phone”. While all the while the phone companies are screwing us with their fking data caps and high prices. Can no one else see the price fixing going on? I call BS on the entiere industry.

I wish cities would just wake up and just make wireless just another utility and let us pay it as part of our city or state tax.

I've decided I'm just going to hold on to this phone until my upgrade comes in April 2012. The EVO is still no slouch and will occupy me by then. More beastly and far advanced phones will be out by that time.

I'm eligible for a new phone in april 2012, but I'm really starting to itch for something new seeing the droid bionic and the Galaxy S2 phones coming out. I'm pretty tempted to jump to Verizon since they are testing out their unlimited mobile to mobile plans in some markets, one being mine. I also get a 25% discount with Verizon so it would cost close to the same as my sprint plan. The Droid Bionic is pretty tempting, and the Verizon LTE network is way better than Wimax (which is why Sprint is switching to LTE in the near future). My EVO served me very well over the last 15 months, but I dont want to wait til April to get something new

Until tomorrow. It would've been until today but Sprint store had not yet received shipment of Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch, and now I have to go to work, unless I can go at my lunch time to get it.

I thank you for everything EVO 4G. I had a wonderful experience since June 4, 2010.

I wasn't thinking much about upgrading but I bought my wife the new Epic Touch and the thing is SWEET! I let her use my upgrade since she is due for an upgrade in 6 weeks anyways and I want to see if HTC does come out with a new phone soon.

I can't believe that my screen feels small now haha!

I'm just going to hold on to my EVO till next year. For some reason i'm not feeling the last couple phones that sprint released. I know the specs are better than my EVO but for some reason I am happy with my Evo. Also my upgrade is not due until the end of 2012, this give me plenty of time to see what the Nexus Prime looks like and what HTC has coming.

Sprint has rumored about the iPhone 5, but I'm not sure if it will happen. I'm still debating if I will leave the Android for iPhone. I'm not too much of a fan of iPhone though, since imho it's "over rated." But for now, I will stick with my htc 4g evo. Now I'm not sure of all the functionalities you can perform with iPhone, but when I jailbroke my iPod, it was easy as pie, yet I couldn't do as much as I can with my Evo. If I do decide on getting the iPhone5, I will not abandon my Evo, I will still play with it, flash roms, etc. It will be my spare phone

Exactly. I'm holding on to mine as well. My upgrade is not until April 2012. But judging by the changes from Sprint, its changed to Feb 2012 due to now being 20 months instead of 22? Anyway, there are a couple of phones on my list. First theres the Nexus Prime. First one with ICS. I'm hoping the next EVO will be a real game changer. The 3D was a let down in my opinion. I'm just hoping they will not mess up the next one. Then theres what possibly will be the cream of the crop.....the Galaxy S lll. If the specs of this phone is legit.....this will be my upgrade.

First off waiting for ICS, wont move until phones are native with that because its going to change the interface greatly and I want to see how that shakes out.

Second I am waiting for Sprint to figure out what the hell they are going to do with their network. Id love to hold out for the LTE switch but that might be another year so hopefully they go to EVDO revB soon because all new phones have radios that support it with a software upgrade.
