    I don't know what got into me but I woke up today wanting to see the iPhone 4. So I went down to my local Apple store to check it out. Within 30 seconds I knew it wasn't for me. The problem with the iPhone is the screen size. I had a first generation iPhone and never once thought the screen was too small. Since having the EVO for the last 2 months there is no way I could get used to anything smaller. To be fair Apple deserves a lot of credit for the build quality of the iPhone 4, it feels amazing in the hand.

    Not at all intended to be a flame war, I'm merely pointing out a significant difference in the Evo's favor. On the other side of the coin I found the iPhone's keyboard and corrective text system to be much better even though the screen is smaller.

    In addition to the feel it also has the 3Gs and the WiFis.

    I miss the 4g wireless, it was funny i was in a car with 4-5 iphone guys and turned my phone into a wireless station so they could play games vs each other without the massive lag of 3g. they want my phone.

    My buddy just got his Iphone 4. It is nice but I was surprised at how light it was. The EVO feels like a stage weight in comparison. What I find funny is that he bitches about certain things on his... just like me and the EVO. They are both phones with quirks. I do have to say, he is quite envious of the kickstand. :)

    Shouldn't build quality consist of more than how the phone feels in the hand?

    I was going to drink the Koolaid(tm) and go for the next iPhone since I was tired of my Sprint Mogul and my contract was coming to an end. After all, it's a very popular phone which what seems to be a lot more accessories and first-edition apps.

    But once I compared screen sizes, the love was gone. The iPhone 4 may have the higher resolution but compared to the 320x240 Mogul low-density (with today's standards), the EVO's screen is what sold me.

    The other two major issues I was willing to compromise was Flash and having to be an AT&T customer. I don't have to now. :)
