    I truly don't get it. I'm really tired of so many people in this forum doing nothing but complaining about what their PHONE doesn't do.

    People. Will you ever be satisfied? We have an amazing device on our hands here that has finally matched, if not surpassed the iPhone. This has always been the standard that all other manufactures have tried to reach. We've reached it!

    Our phones act not only as a phone, but can replace a GPS device, a camera, a video camera, a computer, a gameboy, a personal accountant, a movie player, etc, etc, etc.....What else do you want!?!?!?!!?

    With so many options thrown at us in our daily lives we tend to forget how lucky we are. Stop wanting, wanting, wanting and start to appreciate.

    I love coming to this forum for it's wealth of knowledge and for the most part, happy stories....but all of the complaining has got to stop. Go whine to your mothers and girlfriends....we're all sick of it.

    I think, in all fairness, there are just a few who are truly not satisfied and fall in line with your description. The majority here are either looking for answers to quirks or simply venting about changes that dont seem intuitive. Changes in the OS are going to bring grievances to light at least until its features are fully understood. More features are always a plus and naturally people will want their device to oneup it's competitor.

    Aside from the chronic Debbie Downers, its just human nature running its course.

    I'm sure a lot of people are just jaded. This is my first smartphone and I'm perfectly impressed with it. I've been waiting to get one till the market developed to a point where the devices weren't lacking something glaring and it finally happened with the evo. No complaints here.

    A common denominator with those unhappy with the Evo are those who came from an iPhone, followed by a Blackberry. There are many threads about "my iphone could _ _ _ _ _ " or "my BB _ _ _ _ _ _" (fill in the blank).

    I came from neither, and was not dumbed down by Apples puppetry, so the Evo is hands-down the best phone I've ever had.

    :) I came from an iPhone, and I'm totally happy with my EVO. I AM SO OVER anything HAVING TO DO WITH APPLE...including the "POS" iPhone.

    I wish Android's mail app was as seamless as the iPhone's, but other than that I love this phone.

    What a timely topic :) and...first post too...


    I'm very pleased with my EVO so far and very pleased with Sprint. I've been a Sprint customer for 2+ years after 22 years with what eventually became VZW. So far the best by far, coverage is fine, service is fine, handsets...finally, after being a Pre owner and being promised so much this handset absolutely delivers.

    Examples:

    I have Rhapsody and stream it all the time using the headphone ->aux jack in all of our vehicles. Plus I take the patch cable with me when I travel for business and I rarely ever use the radio in the rental car. I layer the nav app on top of Rhapsody so it talks over the music if I need it. It just works, perfectly. And this isn't some highly compressed audio. I watch the system panel and network bandwidth regularly surpasses 2.3 mb/sec when it's buffering the audio file, on 3G.

    Second, we're heading from the DC area to the Cape Cod area in a couple of weeks so what to do with a bored wife and 6 year old daughter complaining on the trip? Simple: Slingbox. We'll attach the handset, if needed, to the laptop using PDA net and stream the slingbox from our Dish Network DVR all the way up. It will work fine on 3G as we've already tested it on the EVO a few times. Yeah, quality isn't fantastic but I can't complain: We're watching live TV in a moving vehicle without spending thousands of dollars for mobile Sat equipment. Just a laptop stand, a laptop and a 3g/4g aircard.

    As for the handset itself. It does SO many things right I can live with the few, very minor, annoyances. Those annoyances don't ever prevent me from using the phone to its fullest which is more than I can say about so many other handsets.

    Some people will never be happy. I know I was disappointed in many aspects with my last handset but I had a right to be. First and foremost it has to make a phone call. Second, the apps installed by Sprint and the hardware has to function. Those are non-negotiable as far as I am concerned.

    Overall, I am completely satisfied with this handset.

    4G? A bonus for me...8+ mb/sec down in Frisco Tx. Can't even use the hotel WiFi it's so bad.

    So many other examples why this works for me but I think you get the point. Oh....fart apps...forgot about those!

    I was told Froyo enabled my phone to give me a reach around and a tug. Not feeling it.

    This is what I'm +1-ing.

    Totally agree I am SO over Apple. They're not getting another dime I make.

    I don't think it is too much to ask that my phone make coffee, purify water, replace my car, and give me shelter. Also if it could be my personal ATM that would be nice but nor necessary.

    Honestly what really sold me on this phone is 720p. Most of the other features that came with android phones would have been fine with a Hero for me. But while the camcorder will eventually get better, it's kind of frustrating to be sold on something and you get it and really not what you expect.

    I came from a BB and was very sceptical of getting a touch screen and LOVE this phone. I was never turned on by the iPhone becasue there were just too many it couldn't do that my BB was great at. I love this phone despite the fact that I am "one of those people" still getting sporadic good/bad battery life. What sold me on this phone was being able to use the microphone to "talk" texts and emails. Now I love having a FUN smartphone! I quit chasing the rabbit and bought spare batteries so I dont have that worry any more. I dont know how to use many of the features but will find out as I need them (how to save documents, attach them to emails, etc)

    My phone has not yet granted my 3 wishes. I'm taking it back until I get one that does.

    Im on the start of my 3rd week with the EVO. Im switching from ATT after 8 years, and so far my biggest concern about service and coverage with sprint has been acceptable. As far as the EVO goes, its so much better than the Moto Q9h that I had on ATT, and its not an (cr)Apple product (not that being tied to google is that much better!!). I thought I would miss the buttons for typing but have gotten used to the interface and wont go back. I did have a little concern about battery life the first few weeks (4-6 hrs before yellow bars), but after reading many helpful threads here, I did seem to make improvements and now I can swing 17hrs easy with the level of use that I need. There is still so much to explore its intimidating. The 2 things I like most is the improved web browsing over the tiny non touch screen of the Moto, and the various camera Apps and the ability to upload direct to my Flickr account.

    My one and only issue left was sometimes my photos have a pink tint in the center and they are sort of out of focus where the pink is. I searched and this seemed to be an issue with other HTC phones, but I havent seen a solution for EVO's. Its something Im learning to deal with for now... hoping the 2.2 update might correct this?

    I come from several BBs, and the EVO far surpasses them. There may be a couple of features that were more intuitive on BB, but overall I would NEVER leave my Evo to go back to BB.
    I can also say that my Evo is faster than either my old BB's, or my new Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant, so no complaints here.:)

    That's totally my attitude as well. I'm not even using itunes anymore. So, literally not another dime from me either on ANY product that their name is on.

    I love the Evo!
    And i LOVE Apple.
    Their computers are pricey yes, but sturdy and last.
    The iPhone is just a phone. It came out and was amazing, but now its just a fad. There are phones (Evo..?) that have snuck up and passed by the iPhone.
