For former Evo owners: Tell us about the 4g radio comparision
This may seem like an odd question, but I went to sprint to check out the photon, and liked it. But I turned on the 4g ant and had great reception. NO surprise of course in the store. But turned my evo on to compare and had no signal. So I'm wondering if anybody can comment on if somehow motorola has better 4g reception?

4G seems equal to or a little less than my EVO4G. I can't stay connected to 4G for very long. But my area has always been a little iffy. It certainly isn't better than the EVO 4G, at least what I'm seeing thus far.

hmmm I guess it depends on where one is, but I have a better signal than on my EVO 4G in terms of staying connected with 4G.
Members, want to make this place better, just ask the staff. Remember, the "No' is always there, you are just looking for the "Yes". and please read the guidelines, otherwise you may end up in Banlandia.
I dont have any quantitave proof to give but I feel the 4G performance is better than the EVO 4G both in signal and speed.
I get 4-5Mbit indoors on a first floor apartment which was impossible in the EVO for me.
However, even if the signal sucked on the EVO, CM7 on the EVO brought speeds I havent seen yet on this photon because it was in Atlanta (Dunwoody) so i cant test it out since i am in Virginia. I hit 10Mbit there.
Sprint and Motorola have teamed up to bring us the Motorola Photon 4G, the carrier's first international handset with Android. It's a 4.3 inch powerhouse with its dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and more.
