The Design has a smaller screen and only has a single core. As for postpaid I've used both the S3 and the One X and much prefer the HTC offering. The S3's build quality at this price point definitely feels lacking to me.
As far as technical specs, this is the best phone I've ever owned. Subjectively, it is not. The HTC HD2 was a great phone (especially once Android was ported to it,) and when I got it on launch day it was better than other phones on the market (first US phone with a Snapdragon processor.) The G1 was also a great phone, and revolutionary for its time (first Android phone ever.) I still miss the keyboard on the G1...

Prepaid, absolutely. Once I flashed the radio and completely fixed the radio interface error, this phone was a beast. I also have a gs3 on tmobile which destroys this phone in terms of phone performance and network reliability/speed.
As a phone to make calls and text anyplace I am, my tracfone prepaid phones where all better. And had much better battery life.
As a PDA, portable computer, smart phone ; the 3VO is far better than anything else that I have carried. Even better with all the cheap after market options : extended battery, tpu case, cradle, HDMI cable, BT accessories.
Yes. Although battery life sucks. My first smartphone was a Nokia neuron and it sucked. No apps slow responses etc. I then got the optimus v which was cool but I couldn't experience all android had to offer with it. So I love my evo. Plus my service here isn't too bad either
Don't think it's a fair question. Any "flagship" phone of this year should be better than the flagship phone of yesterday. To me, this phone actually ranks at the bottom. Spec wise it is the best I've ever used. However, if it can't get phone/text correct, it goes to the bottom. It may be harsh, but if it has dual core, the memory and all the goodies, then it better get the most basic functions right.
Post Triumph user here, the evo v is way better. The Triumph in my case had the worst gps hiccup ever, I knew it wasn't the network, but It would take about 10 minutes for the gps to work. That's why I hated that phone. But this new one still has a few flaws but overall on prepaid it's ******* good. With leslie ann's guide, it's actually like an evo 3d now. I actually love the 3d on this phone, I love taking 3d pics and videos but the video and just regular picture quality is subpar for 5mp. But now I'm just hoping if it's going to get jelly bean or if that's something that's already happening in front of my eyes or if it's still not going to happen right now.

I came from the Triumph and I don't think I have to tell anyone how horrible that phone is. This phone will definitely last me a year, 2 if it gets Jelly Bean (since CM10 isn't looking promising). By then phones will have 2GHz quad core with 2GB RAM and Android 5.1 xD
First smartphone I had was the Palm Pre. Lovely phone...Web OS is brilliant. That was the best phone I had ever owned. It took a spill off of my couch once though, and shattered. Then I started using Android, and began working in the connections business, specifically dealing with phones. Android has never been able to make me feel like I'm using a premium phone. It's like a Toyota. Lots of development for it, but flimsy...and doesn't run well. Getting tired of it's cheapy feel. The ROM development is the only thing that keeps me on it...but that only goes so far before cameras and major features start to break.
I'll probably be switching to WP8 in November post-paid for the Lumia 920. *That* will be my most premium phone, for me.

Yes, I can say this is the best phone overall.
I had the the Optimus V and the Triumph, the OV was just a gateway into how awesome the android OS is. The Triumph was good after some heavy modification. But the EVO, really blows them out of the water; dual core and reasonably fast 4g make this the best phone I have ever owned. Even if it does have some annoying quirks.
The HTC EVO V 4G is Virgin Mobile's first 4G WiMAX Android device. And if it looks familiar, it is because the phone is the same as the EVO 3D, but optimized for this network.
Release date is set for May 31st, 2012, for a price of $300 off-co... Read More
