    Just got my EVO and it is big & great :) but... it is too big for my wife. :( She would like a smaller phone. :eek:

    What would be a good alternative Sprint phone with the latest Android software? Is there anything that is new for the future that any knows?

    Thank you

    Go to a store and take a look at what they have. Frankly I'd make my wife use it a week or two first before returning it.

    For latest android on Sprint other than EVO, there is the Hero or the moment that have both been updated to 2.1. As far as the moment though, I'd wait as the successor is supposed to be out in a month or so.

    Palm Pre...Moment is also pretty big. My wife went from Moment to Pre and never looked back.

    Samsung Moment 2, out in July.

    for Sprint.

    it will either have Android 2.1 or 2.2
  13. I think the Evo is the only snapdragon based phone Sprint has. Any other phone you buy on the Sprint network will be second rate to the evo.

    Of course you can go with Verizon and get the Incredible which is an even more advanced phone that the Evo 4g and its much more compact.

    I think the Verizon Incredible would be a good fit except full some reason Verizon will not let me put it on Sprints Family plan. :D

    How is it more advanced? Because it has an AMOLED screen?

    The new Moment will have a 1ghz processor though not a snapdragon (for better or worse) and it comes with a slide out full QUERTY keyboard. Also comes with that funky UI the Samsung Galaxy S has, looks a little too iPhone for me but some people like it.

    Bottom line is if you want a phone that will get updated in the next year or two you better not buy anything Sprint has out right now other than an Evo or an upcoming phone. Anything made last year will doubtfully get update but it's not exactly a priority for them.

    Also I don't know if your wife likes Apple products or not (mine does) keep in mind WWDC is on Monday and she may like something there, although I know I won't.

    Huh? The Incredible sucks, your camera can't even do HD video not to mention it's not even a 4G phone. How in the world is it more advanced? Even HTC will tell you the Evo is in a category all it's own right now. Let's not forget it's AMOLED display which even Samsung (who invented the technology admitted it sucked), AMOLED is not Super AMOLED, it's actually worse than an LCD screen in direct sunlight and the colors are way over exaggerated.

    The Moment is almost as big as the Evo haha.

    Palm Pre is fine, I had the Hero before the Evo and I wouldn't recommend it. Doesn't matter, flip a coin.

    The processor runs at full speed where it is underclocked on the EVO (probably to save battery life). So I suppose that could be consider more advanced for the INC.
  23. 1. The 720p video on the Evo looks like garbage because of the ridiculously high compression used. Useless. 2. The Evo uses old TFT LCD technology for its screen which creates poor contrast. TFT LCDs are NOT better than current AMOLED screens in sunlight. There are plenty of side-by-side comparisons of various phones vs the Inc. Not sure where you got your misinformation from. 3. Evo has no trackball or optical pad which will limit its use on many applications and games. 4. The Inc is a faster phone than the Evo. Cnet confirms the Evo being no where near as "zippy" as the Inc. 5. Evo 4g wiMAX is a joke. An entire 12 locations in the USA have WiMAX and it destroys the battery in 3-4 hours with Wimax radio on due to the 2.5ghz band and high power requirements of Wimax. On top of that the speeds are not even much faster than Verizons 3G.

    The list goes on and on....gl

    He does have a point. He's just stating his experience which even I can relate to. Nothing wrong with that.
