    How quickly time flys. Well I'm happy for the most part. I was hoping the EVOs build quality would be better than the Incredible I just sent packing back to Verizon but sadly it isn't. I'm a bit disappointed in the 4G coverage area where I live im supposed to be in a 4G hot spot but I can't get any signal from my home at all. When I do get 4G it is really fast. My phone has a few build quality issues like my Incredible did but it seems to work well so im im happy with it for the most part. The service seems good and since I took the roaming feature down the battery life is great. Now im waiting patiently for the EVO-2 :D

    Im still happy. im kinda glad i left the Incredible and verizon. I have no complaints at all about the EVO. I wish there were more cases but that will come in time.

    I am very happy with the EVO. Better build quality than my Pre and more useful than my Tour. It could use some improvement with regards to battery life but I'm always near a charger so its not an issue for me.

    You may want to hold on the case for a few more, just saw that Seidio is working on a 3500mah battery with back door, stated as being only millimeters thicker. I think that's twice the batterypower?

    Actually just saw photos of the new Seidio battery and door here in the forum, slightly larger than I let on in my post, but still tolerable if it is a powerful as stated.

    I'm very happy with it, I get over 24 hours out of my battery and the phone does everything I expect it to do.

    I'm loving my EVO quite a bit.

    My few gripes are: the back door is crap, the 8mp camera isn't so good, and the apps are kinda lacking in quality.

    I'm more than happy with it. It beats the pants off the iPhone 3GS I had, and I'm loving both Android OS and the phone itself. I seem to have an EVO that has good build quality, as I have no issues with the screen or creaking. I'm honestly totally in love with the thing, and I can't imagine a phone that's much better than this right now.

    I have to say, the big screen is a huge plus. I don't think I could go back to a 3.5" screen again. Bravo, HTC.

    I'm glad I made the switch from The Moto Droid with Verizon over to the EVO with Sprint. The only thing I was worried about was Sprints service but I am pleasantly surprised.

    I still love the phone. The reason i love android is because i always find something new about the phone that i didn't know before. I still show off the phone on a daily basis, and im "that guy" who is always showing it off to random people. The camera quality is amazing.

    Loving it, have been waiting for a phone like this for a very long time! My iPad is getting jealous though :D I will probably end up putting my iPad up on EBAY and going back to a laptop since this phone does so much more than the iPad can do I just don't see myself needing it anymore.

    I love it. I think I got past all my geek excitement with my Hero. This thing is really pretty much the same, just faster and bigger.

    It is nice to have a phone everyone else covets.

    Love it. Been waiting for a high end HTC Android phone on Sprint and this is it. Wimax support is like icing on the cake!

    I had to travel to work on I-55 south (From Chicago to Springfield, IL) and the ENTIRE time I was on 3G. AWESOME. I've never had a problem with dropped calls on my iPhone and ATT, but I would never get 3G coverage. Not even for half the trip. I like paying less and getting more from the network and phone. Win-Win-Win!

    Still happy. However this is my first android phone. Previous phones were: iphone: awesome phone at the time but edge speed was just terrible. Palm Pre: fast (after overclocking), and webOS was a great OS. I still kind of miss webOS but the lack of apps and frequent updates from palm was getting old.

    I am shocked at the disappointment in the camera however. Maybe the other android phones were better but just the front camera blows the pre out of the water...

    Love it, still in the baby stages with it lol...

    Last night at the bar was very intriguing....guy notice how big my phone was and asked what it was. Noticed he had an iPhone and then even compared the two side by side(I kinda laughed cause he had an infamous cracked screen).

    So my friend tells me to do to him what I did to my friend that makes him want to leave Tmo and get an EVO.

    So i do my new routine that ive been doing to everyone now.....I fire up Videos, pull up Book of Eli (720p) and let him start watching it in his hands.

    First he notices how well the big screen shows the movie...and mentions that the iPhone 4 should be able to do that......then here comes the kicker......

    All I say to him is "will your iPhone 4 do this?"....while he is watching the movie, I unnoticingly pull the kickstand out and plop it on top of the bar. Dude ended up having a double take, couldnt believe what just happened.

    Might not have sold him on getting an EVO, but definitely showed him that there is a new king of smartphones in town.

    I was out to dinner last night at the Weber Grill down town Chicago (A great place to eat) with an executive from NBC/Universal and they are all Iphone/Blackberry freaks over there so he noticed the EVO and thank god I had the 4G and GPS on. He asked me to render a Google map and I hit the button an BAM it was right there I was even shocked how fast it came up...blew the poor IPhone user away im afraid. That and he paid for my Prime rib on his NBC credit card made my evening! :D ;)

    I'm pretty satisfied. No build quality issues except for a little bit of light leakage and I can go a full day on a single charge pretty easily with moderate usage. The earpiece doesn't have the greatest sound and for some reason it won't stay connected to my Motorola H700 headset. I do wish there were better quality apps (but there are many good ones that are free!) as well and no 4G for me, but that isn't the phone's fault.

    I do wish the screen had a better resolution though, the icons are a bit Mickey Mouse-ish huge.

    The browsing experience being able to surf pretty much any webpage is great. I use it much more than my laptop now.
