Whilst visiting my in-laws over Thanksgiving I got to take a look at my cousin's Evo 4G. Being a Verizon guy I'd never really looked at the Sprint phones, and the only HTC phone I'm famaliar with is the Incredible. First off, whoever designed the layout must be a genius, because they squeezed 0.3" more screen and a front facing camera into a phone who's physical size is barely a sliver larger than that of my Fascinate. The difference is that the bezel around the whole phone is alot smaller/less wasteful than on my phone. The Evo is a little thicker, but not overly-so. Then we get to the external controls. Samsung must have been smoking something because I've got my USB connection on top of the phone (try talking while it's charging) and my volume/lock buttons opposite of each other on the left/right of the phone. With the Evo you've got everything where it should be: lock on top, volume on the sides, USB on the bottom and hey...what's the slick little port next to USB? Yeah, I want that one too... Next up was Sense and yet again I was green with envy. In my opinion, TouchWiz is downright awful, I spent just a few minutes fiddling with Sense and there's no comparison. I didn't delve too far but it feels like an enhancement of Android rather than the cheap iOS ripoff that TW is. I will say, I like the SAMOLED screen on the Galaxy S a good bit more, the Fascinate's Task Manager I liked alot more, and oh, and I get Swype (which everyone else will get in the near future), but other than that I felt like I was being a little outclassed. I can't comment on performance as we didn't do any benchmarks (and his was rooted/ROM'd above and beyond, my phone is stock with ADW), but there's definitely alot that Samsung could learn from HTC when it comes to layout/presentation.
