    for me, it depends one when the htc saber comes out, and what the saber has to offer.

    Depends on what is out when my account allows for an upgrade. If I had pick of current announced/available phones on Sprint I'd chose the Epic.

    I'll only consider it after it's been out a while and there's no sign of radio lockup, gps or any other significant issue.

    This.

    With the Epic, samsung promises not to hit me any more. Samsung says they still love me. But I've still got my long-wait-for-2.1 black eye, slow-GPS bruised ribs and airplane-mode-lockup broken arm.

    If the Epic doesn't have any major issues a month or two after release then I'll consider it over the Evo. I do like that keyboard.

    I'm not into the keyboard. If it was a 4.3+ screen with no keyboard, I'd get it. The internals MAY have more prospects for gaming.

    For now, I'll say no. When the time comes to get a new phone, I'll evaluate all available choices. Unlike with Moment, I'll not get it the day it is released.

    From the pictures, Epic seems to have a better layout of keys (5-rows), but I'll have to try it to get the feel. I prefer the feel of Moment's keys.

    Has the specs on size and weight been released yet? I'm hoping for something that is a little smaller, or at least thinner. I'm not sure I can get then and a real keyboard though.

    That's the problem with people in abusive relationships, you grow to think the abuse is their way of showing they love you. Samsung does not love you.

    No corporation loves you..or even likes you. The larger they become the less you as the consumer even count and once they go public, you become nothing more than a despised obstacle separating them from what they view as their money. Samsung hates you...HTC hates you, Sony, LG, HP, etc. all hate you and Apple despises the very air you breath. Only you as the consumer think it's personal.

    I'm not sure. I'll probably be upgrading around April. So when the time draws closer I'll look into what is available.

    I'm not sure. However, since the Epic is part of the worldwide release of the Galaxy S phones, it may have better support than the one off Moment...

    Then again, if another phone comes out with better specs... all bets are off. These phone upgrade cycles are far too long.

    Yup. There is an Epic in my future.

    I haven't really had the bad experience with the Moment that some folks have. CDMA lockups are very rare for me. I also rarely need GPS location more accurate than what the "use wireless networks" can get me, and even then, it's only for foursquare.

    Enough stuff got fixed in CL14 that the phone was pretty good, and 2.1 came along before I expected it to (well within their projected release date).

    I expect the Galaxy S phones to get pretty good support, considering they're making them their "flagship" phones, and releasing them on every carrier.

    As far as phones go, the Moment was pretty obscure.

    When My upgrade comes around (in 2 years) if their isn't anything from HTC or Motorola with a keyboard then I guess the epic will be my choice. I don't like how Samsung dealt with the Moment and its vanilla 2.1. They left a bad taste in my mouth.

    In two more years, you won't be getting the Epic. Something else will come along that is even more... "Epic".

    i was really looking to the EVO, but when the Epic was announced i was happy to see that they are not giving up on those of us that like a physical keyboard. Even with Swype (whick i love and do use, tho minimally) i dont know if i am ready to take the plunge into a TOTALLY keyless phone. my upgrade isnt for over a year, but if i liked a phone enough i would buy it

    that said, i dont know if the Epic is going to be that phone for me. im not a HUGE fan of the keyboard layout, although almost anything is better than hitting B instead of N cause of the spacebar placement on my moment.

    i just feel like the specs arent impressive enough after the specs on the EVO.

    i will probably just wait for the next superphone with a keyboard...

    In 2 years we'll be at least 3 generations removed from the current yet to be released Epic.

    Super AMOLED and Hummingbird are both very impressive compared to the EVO.

    i was more talking about the cam specs... i should have been more specific. the processor and SAMOLED are good but the screen size is a bit small

    It's 4 inches. How much bigger do you need it.

    When it'supgrade time I'm going with the best Sprint has to offer, whatever that may be. At the time it was the moment. At the end of the year I'm betting it will be something else.

    I was all set on the moment because of the keyboard but now with swype working so amazingly well I could honestly care less about a physical kb. With that out of the selection process it opens up a whole new world of phones to me.

    I bet my next phone won't be a samsung.

    I'm a little sour on Samsung cellular phone offerings. The Moment isn't the first I've had issues with.

    I've had 5 different HTC smartphones and all have had their problems, but none as serious as CDMA lockups, and the few problems they did have were WM related, not hardware. I'm looking to get the Evo next month.

    By Novermber (hopefully enough time for it to be reeleased) I'll have the $75 off thing and Ive been eagerly awaiting the Epic since I first read about it so as of now, yes I'll get it. Love my moment so a physical keyboard is a must. However, my own personal agenda is to go off to college in 2011 with as new a phone as possible so waiting 'til next year and seeing that selection could be a better option.

    Not to derail the thread, but have you tried Swype?

    I used to feel the same way about the keyboard. In fact it is the reason I was so loyal to and decided to get the Moment in the first place. I got a copy of Swype last week from a guy at SDX and tried it and it works so well that in a weeks time I have decided that a phsical keyboard just isn't that big of a deal anymore.
     

Samsung Moment

The Samsung Moment was one of the first Android Phones with a slideout keyboard.
