Do you use your EVO instead of your ipod?

    I'm debating on getting rid of my ipod touch. I can't think of anything that my ipod can do that the EVO can't do. With google music I'm even able to carry my whole music library with me with my EVO and still have free space. Only advantage I think to the ipod is the battery life.

    My ipod touch collects dust now. I used to use it for primarily watching netflix and hulu at work but now that the EVO had netflix and hulu their is no point in the ipod touch.

  4. Only time I use my mp3 player (which is not an ipod) is when I hit the gym. I personally dont like being bothered or distracted when working out.

    Thanks to Google music and Pandora on my EVO, my ipod has been retired to my desk drawer.

    I use my ipod when cutting the grass. I don't want my EVO to get dirty. :D

    My main set up this summer has been my EVO plugged in and hooked up to some powered speakers outside on my deck while watching the kids play. Whilst listening to some old school hip hop on Pandora. So relaxing.

    I was unimpressed with Double Twist, so I continued to use my iPod for personal use. Just recently though, I began with Google Music, and it looks promising. My only concern is battery life when not hooked to an outlet. Also, it would be awesome if Google music had an option to buy music directly, this way I could get rid of iTunes.

    What's really got me giddy is Spotify. Love it on my laptop, but haven't heard enough good things about the Android App to make me want to become a premium subscriber. Anyone here an EVO Spotify subscriber. Care to share experiences?

    I have to say that while I love love love my EVO, I still prefer the music interface on my iTouch, as well as the fact that it saves battery life on my phone. Mostly, I use my iPod mini (the old-school one with a detachable clip) at the gym and the iTouch with the AUX in the car.

    I use my ipod when I need music ONLY. Because it's 'ighter, and has better battery life, and it has more memory for music (I know google music lets me have my entire library too, but I hate its UI, and sometimes streaming music is slow.

    That being said, the MiUi themed music player is the best I've ever used. And with the DSP manager, I can make my EVO sound much better than my iPod. So in all, my EVO is a better music player, but when portability and battery life are a concern, I will still use my iPod touch.

    I haven't used or bought an iPod in 5 years. I have a 2nd Gen iPod Mini in my car - but it is only for car use.

    The EVO is now my only music player esp. @ work. & working with Google Music, it gives me full access to all my music.

    Pretty much the only thing I use my iPod for these days is in my car. The stereo has a dedicated iPod port, so I just leave the iPod plugged in unless I'm updating or reorganizing my music.

    battery life isnt affected at all by the music player. (if the screen is off). i took a 10 hour flight and it didnt move the battery at all.

    best complementary ipod to the evo is the shuffle. like above, good portable, indestructible. for lawn mowing, gym, etc.

    Pretty much sums up my take on it as well. Love my EVO, but I'd rather use the precious battery for things that I couldn't just as easily do on my iPod Touch or my iPad. I play a lot of Words With Friends, too, and the interface on iOS devices for that game is much better (and you have the option of buying thje ad-free version, which is unavailable on Android, for some reason), so I normally reach for my iPod when I'm looking to play that.

    Yep... iPod has been retired for quite some time. EVO is my main music manager.

    Absolutely I use my Evo now instead of an iPod! I look forward to the day when I can get rid of all Apple products in my house. I use to support them (in fact I'm typing this on a Macbook Pro) but lately they have done a ton of things that really irk me (refusing to support flash on iOS, charging people $100/year to build apps for iOS, building hardware so that you can't replace the battery, patent litigation against HTC, etc.). They have turned into snobby bullies so they can kiss my business goodbye! I just wish people would quit buying iPads...

    In any case I installed a 32GB card in my phone a while back and have never even needed my iPod since then. In fact, my old iPod was stolen out of our car one night so my wife keeps the replacement iPod in her car and I just use my Evo in my car. I have a Ford with Sync so I can stream music via bluetooth or plug it into the USB port and use all of the nifty voice commands. I think my SD card is too slow though -- there is an 11 second delay at the beginning of every track before it starts in USB mode. Very annoying so I don't use the USB function right now (though it worked perfectly with the stock 8GB card). Then again I'm usually just listening to NPR on my way to/from work.

    I frequently use my Evo to listen to music while I work out at the gym or run. It's great -- I just fire up some music, start tracking my run with runkeeper, and I'm set! The only problem is that the touch screen goes berzerk if I'm too sweaty...but the same thing would happen on an iPod touch or any other touchscreen device.

    Love my Evo!

    The Sense default music player is tons better than anything I've used before.

    iPod has been donated to Mom.
    My phone goes on airplane mode when I hit the gym, but I have no need for a separate Mp3 player any more :)

    I could never carry around more than one device. Its just too much hassle. Besides my EVO does everything I need it to do.
    I have never owned apple products and I never will. Its not that they are crap its the company that makes them are just too over the top. I can handle dickheads but apple has some colossal dickheads.

    Just put my ipod up on ebay last week! Since I got my evo I really don't use it. I could use the extra money too.

    Only think I will miss is all the games I bought for my pod.

    I'm in the same boat. I like my Evo but prefer to use my iTouch to listen to music when I'm not using Spotify or something else. It's simple, sounds fine, and has more storage space. I also prefer saving my battery for more important things on the Evo.

    I will say that I did use my Evo as a music player on a flight a few weeks ago, and it worked wonderfully.

    I'm split. It easier to put music on my evo (only 8gb though, and a lot of that is used by pics, nandroids etc..) so I really have about 4g for music. When I get a new cd it's easier to put it on my evo in comparison to my ipod.

    Though if I'm needing some pure music, I'll hit up my ipod (16gb full of music). My ipod sticks close to my guitar amp lately lol. Evo's with my blastin' new cds. Not into pandora too much any more.

    Seems everyone is really liking google music...

    So i just started with google music also, and i'm liking it so far.

    My main question is: Is there something to make the sound coming from the evo better? My ipod sounds much better when playing through speakers.
