    For about the last 6 years or so I have had some kind of smart phone. I have had Blackberries and Palms. I thought I would give Android a try. There are some things about the OS that are nice, but there are some things that are way to hard to do or things you can't do at all. For example:

    By the way I am using a HTC Evo with Android 2.1

    1. Why can't you simply save an email message with a POP account? You can move it to another folder but can't simply create a new folder called saved.
    2. The default news reader is nice, but why can't you select all to delete? Deleting one by one is insane.
    3. When taking a picture, why can't I move that pictures to a new folder, instead of leaving it in the camera folder?
    4. Why is there no actual spell check and not predictive typing? It really slows me down to have to always double check what the system is changing my words to, example Yoda becomes soda. If you turn it off, you get nothing.
    5. Why is there no backup feature?
    6. There needs to be better control of apps on your phone. I have set stocks and a few others to not update automatically but they do it anyway.
    7. There needs to be some way to disable or at least hide icons you don't use. There is already enough apps I have to scroll through without seeing Nascar and others I don't use nor want.
    8. Battery life has to be improved. I mobile device I have to always keep plugged in is useless. That might be hardware but also might be the apps trying to update, I set to don't update.
    9. It would be nice to have a light for my HD camcorder, doesn't work all that well in low light.
    10. No music over mono bluetooth option? You can start a phone call then click music and play it over your headset until you hang up. So it works so why don't I have that option all the time? Would be perfect for pod cast.
    11. You can't change the default greeting on the locked screen. All other phones you can. All it says is Sprint, so if you lose your phone your out of luck if you have a locked pattern.

    **And the biggest problem, no bluetooth voice dial???? Every phone I have had would do this, even the cheap ones I got for free. It is against the law in a lot of states to use the phone while driving, yet this phone does not support that feature????

    I know some might say that there might be an app for some of these things or that you can attach the phone to your PC to do some of them, but really these should be included by default. My older smart phones could do them, so shouldn't a "new" one be able to. So far I'm not too impressed with this phone but I don't know where the fault lies. With Sprint, HTC, or Android????
