    Dont get me wrong, i love the Evo ( aside from the battery life and my crappy call quality which hopefully swapping for a new one will fix), but its just a little too big for me. The actual screen is a great size, but after you factor in bezel its pushing it- 4 or 4.1 would have been a lot better i think. It dosent feel "mobile", in that i find i need to hold it or put in on the table when i'm out. Maybe its because i'm coming from a razr. For this reason i may just go caseless with a full body skin to reduce bulk and hope for the best. Anyone else agree?

    You must have small pockets. The EVO fits fine in my pocket, although im not sure which case you have, I have that silicone cover from sprint. I would love to carry it naked, but I would lose it if I ever dropped it. I cant carry a phone this expensive without some sort of protection.

    I definitely think it feels big in the hand, but think it rides really well in the pocket. Its less noticable than my hero. Probably because it doesnt turn sideways and is a little thinner. I think I will put a case on mine though at least for the summer. The pockets in my shorts are plenty big anyway. That and being outside a lot I would feel more comfortable sitting it on the ground and not worrying about scratches (basketball, pool, tennis, etc).

    its not really the pocket size, more the fact that i can feel it when i move my legs such as walking up stairs, sitting in a booth, ect

    I've always used the holster that came with the case. Luckily for me, I have big hands, and it fits just right. :)

    I've gone naked since day 1. No problems.

    EDIT: Also, I may be 6'3, but this phone feels perfect to me. It's less noticeable in my pocket than my iPhone 3G was, somehow.

    Well, it seems big until you start watching videos...then it seems just right.

    Is that just a snap on? My problem with those is that they tend to fall off the device if you drop it, making it pretty useless.

    Yeah I also agree that a case might make this big phone overly huge. I opted for just a body skin and caseless. Hopefully I don't drop it.
