    Hmmm from everything I've read it seems like everyone says the EVO's battery is crap when doing 4g. That's about the only thing I will agree with on. I'm still going to get one and I live in a 4g zone, but I don't plan on using it much.

    To be honest I'm just buying the phone for the screen. My zune broke and I was forced to use my psp and I fell in love with the screen size. I think the EVO has the same size screen.

    I don't talk on cell phones much (maybe 30 minutes a month). The rest of the time my phone will sit on my desk playing podcast and movies while plugged in to the usb port for power.

    His review is fairly accurate and certain things were just opinions. Like his take on sense ui and what not. This phone is not as simple as an iphone. I have owned the iphone before and enjoyed it but got bored with it. If ur an iphone fan i see nothing on this phone that would make u wanna switch. Even tho i absolutely love it. The battery issue is gonna be the downfall of this device. U have to do to many things to this device to get optimal battery performance , and for your average consumer it isn't worth it. U buy a phone for all of its wonderful features then find out u have to disable and kill off half of them to get good battery life.

    That's hilarious, the article mentioned his "colleague Jason Kincaid." Small world, I went to school with that guy from kindergarten all the way through high school!

    Lucky guy got to play with the EVO, even if he did almost break the kickstand...

    Every phone I've had the last 3 years can kill a battery in less than 4 hours with heavy usage. This is no more a problem with the Evo than it was for the others.
    If you don't use it "responsibly" you won't get through the day or even 'till lunch.

    It's a sticking point if smartphones in reviews but it won't be it's downfall, it's in it's nature

    He said this phone is laggy. Every review has praised it for being extremely snappy and responsive. People like this are the reason the internet has no credibility... I really hope he gets hit by a car and dies. Loser.

    So let me get this right... the jist of the article is:

    The EVO has a big beautiful screen.. but its not an iphone...
    The EVO has a 4.3" screen... but the iphone's is 3.5"...
    The EVO has 4g which is fast... but its not an iphone..
    The EVO has an 8MP camera... but the new iphone might have 5MP
    The EVO has flash... but the new iphone might too
    The EVO has a kickstand... but its not an iphone...
    The EVO has a better social networking feature... but its not an iphone
    The EVO has a 1GHZ snapdragon... but its not an iphone...

    I'm lost... how is the iPhone better?

    And is it me or did the iPhone take 4 versions (iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS, 4G) to get to "almost" what the EVO has already? And it still doesn't multitask?

    (playing devils advocate, still hate apple)

    How many stepping stones has the Evo jumped over to get to how it is today?

    Simply put, the guy's a total jackass who decided to write up this article cause his phone is no longer the latest and greatest.

    Inside your monitor.
    But but but but....

    The iPhone 4G is the first phone with a front-facing camera, flash for the camera in the back, video calling, and has the fastest processor ever invented!!! The EVO SUCKS!! :D

    I just read the entire review. I don't think it was that bad really.
    I'd bet he has a bad app or is perhaps running something in the background like Pandora, does it bog down an Android phone the way it does my Pre?
    That could explain why he says Sense, the camera and the battery life, is slow while everything we've seen shows otherwise.
    He also has a great point on the keyboard, it's just plain awful IMO. 1st thing I'll change.

    That review could be much worst if just a slam-job.

    i was an iphone fan for the longest. G1 was too early of an android for me to jump on. Switched to a MyTouch 3G. iphone > MT3G, mainly because of hardware. Then I jumped to the nexus one. N1 pwns iphone. the only real advantage i see the N1 has over the EVO is its access to new android versions.

    Sooooo....coming from a former iphone fan, EVO wins.
