    I'm 15 and my birthday is coming up in a week. My dad says I can get any phone I want on sprint. I used to have a palm pre but it broke because of its crappy build quality. My dad has an Evo and says I could get one too if I wanted. He also says I could wait for any other phone if I wanted. I'm pretty geeky so I'm not your average consumer (I go on engadget and tech blogs regularly; I've also rooted phones before). My question to you guys is should I get the Evo or wait for another smartphone such as the epic or something?

    My birthday is coming soon also (13th) and I'm getting the Evo. I think the Epic will just be the Evo with a qwerty keyboard, but I'm not too sure on how it compares spec wise as I'm trying to refrain from upcoming cellphone rumors that have specs which make the Evo seem like a midrange phone.

    Whichever you want lol.

    But in all honestly, I think the Epic is a better phone.
    -4" Super AMOLED screen
    -More internal memory and a higher capacity included MicroSD card
    -Superior processor in Hummingbird (in both everyday tasks and graphics. For graphics, it is not even close- GLBenchmark 1.1 Result Database ).
    -Probably a better camera (as Samsung also manufacturers cameras).

    The Evo has the 4.3" and kickstand but aside from that, I don't really see any advantages.

    The Evo is a great phone, no doubt, but in terms of raw hardware, I think the Epic is better.

    I agree with this. I'd go EPIC myself, unless you really want the bigger screen and don't like slide out qwerty.
