    I'm currently an iPhone 3G user, getting ready to make the switch to Android when my contract runs out (at the end of this month). Right now I'm pretty dead set on Sprint and leaning towards the Evo 4G (the other option would be the Epic 4G, assuming that it turns out to be a good phone as well).

    As an iPhone user...there was a lot that I was impressed with at first, but eventually all the things that I don't like about Apple and the iPhone got to me in the end.

    As the Evo 4G right now is the phone that I'm most likely going to go to, I was just wondering what people who actually have the phone, dislike about it. I've read on here that for most people, battery life is no longer an issue after upgrading to a higher capacity battery, conditioning the battery, and utilizing some task management. Is that true for the most part? I'm a pretty heavy user...not for phone calls or texts as much...but constant data usage all throughout the day (I'll be in a 3G only area btw...so 4G will be turned off for now). Is there anything else that Evo owners aren't all that happy with? I'm especially interested in hearing from those who have already upgraded to 2.2.

    Also, are many of you gamers? How is gaming on the Evo? I know that the Epic 4G is supposed to have a much better GPU and that the Evo is capped to 30 fps for some reason...but does this translate to actual poor gaming experiences for Evo users? Benchmarks don't always tell the full story, as a most games will never reach the CPU/GPU stress of the benchmark software anyway.

    Thanks for responding (and sorry if this has been posted already...I tried searching for it, but didn't see anything).

    It doesn't print money....yet

    :)


    Basically, I don't have 4G 100% fully functional.

    We did get it this weekend (Orlando, FL), but it's been on and off/

    I wish 4G was more widespread because it is blazing fast. I wish there was an itunes equivalent or the phone could work in itunes. Other than that nothing really. It blows my 3G away. I am so glad I got rid of my iphone.

    Theres an app that lets you use the volume keys in the side to wake the phone up.

    I did a test with 4G with NO bars inside my apartment: 2,500-3,000 kbps download.

    I went outside where it was full bars: 5,000-6,500 kbps

    With 3G full bars: around 800-950 kbps.

    Have you tried doubletwist for your Evo? Supposedly that does a pretty good job at syncing music. Or are you looking to sync apps as well? I think another program called AppBrain (?) can sync your apps as well. Personally, one of my favorite parts about moving away from the iPhone is that I can stop using iTunes. I always felt that iTunes was a really big resource hog and is way too clunky for what it does.

    Wish 4G was in northwestern Ohio. And wish it wasn't a fingerprint magnet but other than that I love my Evo. I had a Samsung Instinct S30 before which I hated so this phone has been a blessing

    Dual mic's for noise canceling would have been cool, but it wasn't a deal breaker. I could go for a better stock music app.
