    My first android phone was the htc hero, I got it the first day it came out. Around august my hero turn super saiyan and transform into the evo from since then I am constantly on it for some reason it's hard not to be on it. I personally think this is the best phone as of now. I've played with the epic and iphone and the only thing better is the screen. The evo is a beast, and I can't with until june to turn my evo into super saiyan2.

    My EVO has the best phone radio I have ever had! I can make and receive calls in locations where with other phones (multiple) I was unable to make or receive calls.

    While recent experience with Google tablets has caused my EVO to seem sluggish and I have battery problem like everyone else I will only keep an upgrade that lives up to the EVO's radio.

    to be fair...

    when I got the htc Touch.. I thought that was the best phone ever
    then the Diamond...was awesome
    the Touch Pro 2.. was kick ass
    the Hero.. was mind blowing...
    the EVO.. is the bomb.

    each phone was... "the best phone I ever had!"
    and each was an htc :D

    I'm new in the Evo forum!
    I just dumped my Samsung Moment and I'm extremely happy to be a new Evo owner! My hubby has had his Evo since November and absolutely loves it!

    Just got my Evo, switched from the Hero. I am in total lesbians with this phone for way too many reasons to bore everyone with (and you probably already know anyway). I'm going to elope to Canada with it.

    I love the EVO. I see no need to root since the phone is lighting quick, no lag, and I like HTC Sense's Exchange integration much better than the stock Android.

    at 7 pm to night...

    i had to add water and anti-freeze to my car.. outside... to dark to see what I was doing..

    EVO to the rescue... turn on the LED... brightest setting.. daul LED baby...

    But.. I need both hands to hold the container.. and not spill to much.
    pop the kickstand and set her on the engine cover...

    done .. and I am good for tomorrow's freezing temps.

    love that EVO

    Picked up my 002 on release day at the Sprint store and haven't had any issues with it. I have it in a Seidio Innocase+Holster, fwiw. Still very happy with it and even happier having just rooted it last week and flashing MikFroyo mod. :)

    I'm just loving this phone.

    The features on my EVO far outnumbered my previous phone. This is the phone for me now, until something better comes out.

    I have to admit I'm still very impressed with everything this phone can do. And it does a lot!

    I had an Epic for the past 6 months, and it was nothing but a PITA! I would randomly lose signal, go to roaming, not be able to place a call... The GPS never worked. I got it because I had trouble using the touch keypad on the Hero, and convinced myself that I couldn't live without the physical keyboard. I hated every minute of the Epic.

    I just got the Evo 2 days ago, and I am so in love! My only beef is that it was super easy to root the Epic and I've been reading through all the threads on here and am thoroughly confused on rooting the Evo.

    I know there are alot of rabid Epic lovers, but honestly, Samsung cannot touch HTC in quality.

    You're right about it being intimidating, but if you take your time and read and then follow the directions it'll be very much worth it. Have fun!!

    it is very intimidating if you look at the whole thing at one time!

    read each instruction... (dont skip any sentence) one at a time. and only worry about that step. take notes on that...and it is not that hard.

    Still love my EVO, great device. But I've been tempted lately to take the plunge into Tab Land and I really don't want to spend the money because I know that a smartphone will be more practical for me on the go. The EVO does great for me because of the large screen, but ME WANT MORE SCREEN!

    I'm hoping Sprint comes out with a 4.5-5.0" Android. Either way, still loving my Evo and everything I'm able to do with it.
