    Now I'm pretty convinced! As far as HTC having Sexy devices, they get the nod! But there quality suxxx. The incredibles call quality was not good at all, and now the EVO. Well I can't understand this at all, it's a phone first, everything else is secondary. And sadly I can't thing of a worse problem then having not so good call quality on such a hot device. They get the double thumbs down!

    It could be better but its not the worst I have had. Its the little tiny speakers they use.

    Could be your coverage area. Everyone I called said it sounded clear and crisp. Two calls were on the free Bluetooth. My area has excellent 3G. Had at least 5-6 bars all day. My only gripe is I had to use tweezers to get the SD card out. Other than that this phone is 10 out of 10. People keep trying to find things wrong to make threads. Just enjoy.

    Call quality sounds excellent. Much better than my BB and maybe even better than my previous iPhone. And I thought the iPhone call quality was great.

    The Evo has been great so far but the truth of the matter is that the ear speaker on it is not very good at all. We've got two of them and the sound quality is a bit tinny on both. My Samsung M520 had a better ear piece. That's not in any way to say it was a better phone from any other aspect, but I'm just being honest about the ear piece quality. The sound from the ear piece was just plain better.

    However, there's lots of people who have said that about other HTC phones (i.e. their old phone had a better ear speaker) so I knew ahead of time that this might be the case. Was just hoping that they stepped it up a bit more for the Evo but oh well.

    I can live with that but I also have a slight buzz in the ear piece when people talk and it hits certain notes. I probably would've chalked it up to just being a cheaper ear piece except we have two of them and my wife's Evo doesn't do that at all. Her's is still tinny and such but no buzz when the other person speaks. So I'm torn as to whether this bothers me enough to exchange the phone. Everything else is perfect and it's not like the ear speaker is all that great anyway so I don't know.

    I thought mine had a slight tinny sound too. Not a deal breaker but slightly annoying. The calls are very clear though I can hear everything just fine, it's just it does not sound as good as my old found.

    It's not the call quality that's the problem here. It's the ear piece that is lacking. Yes, everyone is hearing fine no doubt but its just not up to par with any phones I've had in the past. I noticed the insufficient ear piece struggling with higher call volumes on certain words. Those who can't here them are lying to themselves. All the 3 EVOs on my family plan experience the same issue which is rather disappointing.

    yes we're all lying to ourselves :|

    my volume and audio quality is fine. I didn't even play with the volume thingy so im not sure if its all the way up or half way. This coming from someone who listened in earphones for 5 years

    maybe you have issues but dont tell me I do K?

    I left T-mobile because I had bad coverage and reception in my house. Prior to that I had Sprint for more than 4 years. In that time I never ONCE dropped a call or had spotty coverage.

    With my Evo I have dropped 3 calls, and people voices break up when talking. This doesn't happen with other Sprint devices in my house. Weak antenna? Defective unit? I'm not really impressed by the call quality at all...

    I can actually relate this same exact sound on tinny speakers on certain laptops (Sony Vaio Z) on high volumes. Just a lack of workmanship on the actual earphone.

    Yes, my wife and I both noticed the ear piece quality was lacking right away. However, I was on a conference call this morning and the speaker phone is awesome. At least to me it is. I know some reviews had said it was just so so, but I guess they have higher standards than I do in terms of that. I have no complaints about the speaker phone and it's plenty loud enough for me.

    You know, I didn't really notice it until after reading this thread. I had two conversations on the phone today that had an almost 'hissy' sound after they would speak. Not all calls were like this though, I had a lot of clear convos today too.
