    My Evo V 4G came via Fedex today. And after struggling to activate it, it is up and running. I haven't done much yet though.

    After I installed a few apps, here is what i can tell you;

    Speedtest: I average 1mb~ up, and just under 1mb down on 3g, I can't seem to pick up 4g at my house, but it is still faster than my Triumph. Ping; 120ms~

    Figured out how to take a screenshot. Sorry this is a huge image.



    Quadrant: CPU; 2408, Mem; 2359, I/O; 3592, 2D; 357, 3D; 1856

    Things I think are cool:
    Data usage monitor built in.
    More to come.
    GPS appears to be faster.

    I did find a quirk; when you turn off auto rotate the screen is flipped upside down. No idea why. If anyone comes up with a solution, post it.

    If there is anything else you want me to look into, let me know. :D

    What kind? Screen shots? 3D pictures? Pictures of me holding it?

    HBOOT version:

    Pull battery and reinstall, hold vol down while turning the phone on. you will then be in hboot and you should see the text hboot somewhere on there and a number beside it. hopefully it is 1.50

    Can you please try the gps to see if it locks on faster than our triumphs? Thanks good luck and have fun with your new phone.

    If you want fast GPS, try flashing the Ginger Sharp ROM. Locks on in 5 seconds or less and I can get a lock inside buildings. Make sure to enable Assisted GPS.

    Got mine today too. It has Sprint branding but has the VM interface and firmware. I'll edit my post with pics soon.

    FYI: I got it in store at a Radio Shack and they got it from the back, it wasn't on the shelves yet either... ;)

    Looks like it's only RadioShacks on the east cost that have them in today. I'm waiting here in California!
