Aug 24th 2010 7:00PM I agree. After playing with this for a few days I have realized that it did warrant a press conference. Unlike many previous incarnations of voice input, input by voice action actually works well. Like really, really well. After just a few days of use, I have found myself not wanting to type on my EVO's keyboard. It is so much easier speaking out whatever I want to do. And the integration with Google maps and navigation is just awesome. Not too far down the road, I think folks will start realizing that Google's Voice Actions are a total game changer.
Jul 16th 2010 5:15PM @system22 The Droid Eris they are using clearly says "Verizon" on it.
Jul 1st 2010 4:04PM @hajj3 Yeah, the Droid X will be competing directly with the EVO but the EVO did not lose points for lack of 2.2 out of the box. Both will likely get 2.2 at about the same time. So how can it be fair to drop the Droid X's score on that basis?
Jun 29th 2010 2:02PM I had this problem on my HTC Touch Pro. That phone had a lot of problems, but over the life of the phone, I have to say that the proximity sensor one was the most annoying. It almost kept me from buying another touchscreen phone. I really hope Apple is able to work this one out for all you iPhone 4 owners because it is frustrating as hell.
Jun 8th 2010 11:02AM @Joe007 I live in San Francisco and Sprint service is excellent! Especially on my new EVO. I switched from AT&T to Sprint about two years ago and I have never regretted it. Dropped calls on AT&T were a very common occurrence, even on non-iphone phones; they are an extremely rare occurrence on Sprint. Call quality and coverage are also excellent. I don't know how may times I used my blackberry for internet or maps when friends' iphones weren't getting service. Until I start hearing AT&T coverage has gotten better here, I won't even consider going back, even for a phone as nice as the iphone 4.
Jun 7th 2010 4:49PM @John Locke Interesting that my EVO made it on Sunday from 10:30 am to 9:30 pm without being charged, with multiple phone calls, occasional internet use via 3G, and use of the camera to take about 7 pictures and I still had 62% of my battery remaining. By my calculation, 11 hours of use and standby drained 38% of the battery. So... I am not really sure where you are getting this "10 hour" standby time figure. I hate to disappoint you, but the "problems" with the EVO's battery were way overstated. With reasonable adjustments to the settings, battery life really isn't a big issue.
Jun 4th 2010 2:26PM The computers were slowed down at Radioshack this morning and the poor people who got there before me were asked to come back later. Somehow I became the first customer that they were able to get through to Sprint's system on and I was the first to walk out of the store with a new EVO. I have to say, I am loving the phone!
May 4th 2010 7:35PM I think I would give up on the Evo for a free Incredible!
Apr 14th 2010 1:09PM @Elranzer I think there is a reason why Sprint fanboys are starting to pop up. I switched from AT&T and I can't imagine ever going back. Reception is great in the bay area and I rarely rarely have dropped calls. It can't be disputed that they have the best pricing and they have been working hard to improve customer satisfaction. Now they are FINALLY adding the next needed piece to their turn around - a phone people can actually get excited about. That being said, the Droid Incredible looks like an awesome phone. If the Verizon map is really important to you, this looks like the one to get.
Mar 30th 2010 1:07PM @jamo I switched from AT&T to Sprint and could not be happier (especially once I get my hands on the EVO). They have the lowest priced plans by far and they have solid and reliable coverage in the SF Bay Area. I constantly dropped calls on AT&T and it has never been a problem with Sprint.
