    Call it what you want but right now there isn't a screen that looks as good as the iPhone 4s screen.

    I just sold my 4s and currently back to my evo. Man its hard to resist the urge to get the new evo. Not sure if I can wait and see what apple brings. Or Samsung. Or Motorola. Ughhhhh eff it.

    I have the quad core Tegra 3 in my Transformer Prime, and honestly, quad core isn't all it's cracked up to be so far. I'm not really seeing the benefits from all four cores on a regular basis... in my experience faster dual cores are going to be more efficiently used by Android in its current iteration.

    What are you comparing screen v.s. screen i.e. 3.5 (iphone) vs. 3.5 (HTC), because if your comparing iphone to larger screen size, your doing apple's and oranges because a smaller screen will have mpre dpi then a larger screen (not all cases, but most) and HTC has a phone(s) that have have more dpi then the iphone, I think it's the Rezound! So since the Rezound has a higher res screen, is the iphone still better!?

    Resolution is a tricky thing.

    I often say that we all see differently.

    In our society, we pay homage to that, but we sometimes take it as a quality metric - not only of the phone, but of ourselves and others.

    When I say it, I refer to studies of our eyes down to the quantum level, because such studies have been done.

    Yes, smaller displays are crisper. Yes, comparative norms exist (no one sees a massive star or even full galaxy as anything other than a pixel in the night sky).

    But beyond that, all pixel and dpi (ppi) discussions can only involve numbers near to some average for the human population.

    For some people, 800x480 at 4.3" is great, for others, the iPhone is still too coarse.

    That isn't a statement of quality of eyesight or perception, merely the outcome of a single measure for a person's eyes.

    There are many other equally important measures.

    Until you can't tell that it's a display, the perfect display doesn't exist.

    Therefore, we will have our differences on screen preferences.

    It is what it is. ;) :)

    Is this the place to ask, "Do you expect any kind of imrovement on 3G capability with this Phone?" I mean in terms of, well, anything. Building penetration, strength from tower, speed, etc. Noob Q, I know, and don't mean to contaminate the thread.

    This will be one of those questions that is impossible to predict prior to the phone's release. Historically, there hasn't been a correlation with how "new" a phone is and its RF performance (as some older phones have great 3G, some newer ones have worse 3G). Some predict that because of the aluminum unibody, the LTEvo could have worse RF performance than say, the all-polymer HTC One X, but it's all complete speculation at this point (the LTEvo has its antennas in the plastic portion, but who knows how it will impact performance.)

    i think you want to research into the sprint's new Network Vision. that is the current upgrade plans to all the sprint towers. to a new tech.. and stuff. :)

    this will be your major source of better performance in the new future. depending where you live.. is how quickly you will see this affect you.

    I'm on the pre-order list and plan on buying off contract.. Now that I think about it, I don't think I have purchased any of my Evo's with an upgrade...

    I don't care how nice a display is, if it's too small it's useless to me. Friends try to show me videos on their iPhones and they end up asking me to load it on my EVO instead because it's bigger. I think this new EVO is just going to blow it away.

    :adore: Even if the company I work with (top of umbrella already) got bought out, I don't think I'd see any benefit from it :(. Not that I can complain though because I love what I do and it pays enough for me to at least be able to fulfill my needs for buying new tech gadgets every year. :D

    Not sure, but I don't think I have another annual upgrade to use - on either line. :(

    That puts me into a $150 discount - but not worth it for me at the intro retail rate.

    Looks like yours truly will be waiting - I just won't pay retail for a phone. :D

    EM, were you Gold Premiere when you upgraded to the 3VO? If you were, you definitely should be eligible at launch for your last 1 year upgrade.

    Sprint isn't showing I'm upgrade eligible in July, but Best Buy's upgrade checker clearly says I am (based on when I purchased the Photon at launch).

    Cell Phones: Smartphone, Mobile Phone - Best Buy

    Their upgrade checker is pretty darn accurate too.

    Nope, no LTE in this area, so the phone is useless to me. Actually, I got fooled into getting the Evo thinking 4G was going to provide an amazing experience, but I have found that Wimax was a joke and I never use 4g. I wont get fooled again with this phone either. Until LTE comes to Baltimore and the surrounding areas, there is no need to rush out and get this phone. I will be a phone free agent in June and will wait to see if the Iphone5 will be released. Then I will make my decision on the best phone for me. I'm no fan boy...they are all just phones...and at this point they all have advantages/disadvantages over the other. May the best phone (for me) win.

    :adore: <-- mega thanks button to you :)

    Ok - so that says I have full eligibility for upgrade on 6/1/2012. And my wife's 3vo, purchased 1/2011 gets full eligibility on 11/1/2012.

    Last time I logged into Sprint - a few weeks back - it said I had 84 days to use or lose a $150 upgrade credit. I log in today, it says that I'll have a $150 upgrade credit if I just wait until June.

    LoL - ok, so if BB is right, I'll have an upgrade possible.

    And according to previous posts, either the upgrade at $200 will be after the $150 discount - or - if it played as it did for some Evo to 3vo upgraders last year, it'll come out to only $50.

    Thank goodness they make it so easy to understand.
