    Are there any links I can view that show some release dates of any new android phones? i'm quite tired of my processor on my hero, but i don't want to upgrade to the epic or the evo cuz of the $10 fee, and evo is too big..don't want a keyboard..

    gosh i wish nexus one was on our network..has the trackball and everything!! :D

    They just released the Samsung Transform and the Sanyo Zio. None are 4G, but they do have dual cameras and support video chat. They are also using Sprint's new Sprint ID.

    Yes, both the Zio and Transform are in stores now. Not much better than your Hero though from what I understand.

    It's well worth it for the EVO! I came from the Hero due to the lag. I've yet to see the EVO lag in the slightest!

    I've never looked back! Sure the extra $10 is b/s but it's only $10 so I'm not bitching too much. It's a great phone!

    There's something called the HTC Knight coming up. It looks like it could be a version of the Desire.

    If that's true, it would still be a pretty good upgrade if you don't care to wait for the new high end handsets. Chances are the new superphones don't roll out until January-ish at this point.

    No, I didn't overclock. Just running stock kernal and rom.

    Well that's pretty much what it comes down too. You can google the comparisons. It's pretty much a toss up...

    If your coming from the Hero you might like the EVO better just because it has Sense vs. Epic's TouchWiz (I think is what it's called)

    I find that my epic runs much smoother than my wife's evo. Thats just my experience.

    You're not going to actually see much of a difference between the performance of the two processors.
    You say " i don't wanna hear ..oh it's based if you want a keyboard or not.." but it has a great deal to do with that. Basically...

    Epic:
    Keyboard
    Touchwiz ui
    Smaller screen
    SAMOLED screen
    Known to have GPS problems.

    Evo:
    No Keyboard
    Sense ui
    Largest screen on the market
    LCD screen
    Known to have problems with dust getting under the screen.

    Aside from that... EVO's running 2.2 and will likely (looking back at HTC's history) be one of the first handsets to receive Gingerbread after release. As well as the possibility of getting the New Sense UI.

    Epic is running 2.1 and will likely (looking back at Samsung's history) finally receive 2.2 around the same time that gingerbread is released... that is, if they don't skip 2.2 altogether and instead push for a late release of gingerbread.

    If you root and are proactive, of course you can get what you need :). My point is that you don't get squat from samsung.
