    The money isnt and issue beyond spending it for no reason.
    Just not sure if spending the extra with out the 4g is worth it.

    I would say Evo over Hero but I can see them putting out a less expensive phone like the Legend in the next several months so if you can wait you may get something less expensive if you don't need the huge screen or 4g, etc. If you want the biggest and baddest, go Evo. If you want something less over the top, wait for the Hero replacement.

    The Evo is definitely superior to the hero in basically every way. However, I do realize that phones like the Evo aren't for everyone. 4.3 inches is a lot of screen. I just signed up for Sprint a couple days ago at Best Buy and got the hero for $30 (Yes, $30!) but pre-ordered the Evo at the same time. I made sure it wouldn't be an issue for me to just get the Hero and use it as a temporary phone then return it for the Evo on June 4. The Hero is enough phone for some people, myself not included. It's a bit too laggy. It reset on me today when I was going into typing a text message and then turning up the volume. Guess I was asking too much of it, lol.

    I agree with ashykat, the Hero is laggy. It kills me typing (or rather mistyping) because the processor can't keep up and also the keyboard is entirely too cramped on the small screen. The only thing the Hero has going for it is that it's a good size for holding / putting in your pocket.
