    Got my first EVO in June 2010. Loved it. NO ONE had them. I found a store who had one and it 'just came available'.

    Froze a lot. Skipped a lot. Taskiller fastreboot etc.

    Was on train and in the same day saw two diff evo owners and peeked. When I saw them moving like a hot knife thru butter I asked. Doesnt it freeze and skip??

    Sometimes not usually.

    Had to get another one. New one runs like hot knife thru butter. Smooth as glass.

    So wth was the deal with the first one? Did I get someones broken return?? Thoughts?

  2. Don't install task killers. Slows down the phone and creates lag if you don't know what you are doing.

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    i think that sprint and htc were in a race to be the first to have the world's 1st 4g phone out in the market. so if i remember correctly, some or a lot of people were having hardware issues because of it.
  4. This.

    And you can also try a factory reset too, this will clear up any software issues.
  5. I don't see any threads saying there are hardware issues.

    Taskiller has been a savior. It made my old phone usable and makes my new one better. I agree many task killers are not worth it. Taskiller is awesome.

    I think you are dead on. I think they made hardware and software improvements and didnt say much about it.

    LOL facepalm. As I type this I just remembered my 'rule'. Never buy the first of anything (used to be applied to cars).

    New style corvette? Dont get it.

    New operating system? Dont get it.

    duh New phone? Dont get it.

    Manufacturers use us as beta testers. Think Windows ME and Windows Vista.

    Cest la vie....

    Yea but it took a full day just to get phone as I had it much less recover any data.

    I really dont expect to have to factory reset more than once a year. Thats Sprint tech cure all.

    Problem? factory reset. But yea as a last resort I guess so.
