You know I don't mean to be an arse about the Evo, but I had a review unit on me for a day and found it to be a fairly miserable device.

My complaints in a nutshell were HTC Sense slows the device down considerably (coming from a N1, forget any animated wallpapers unless you want a pocket warmer), the battery life wasn't good, the keyboard software is lousy, and the Sprint crapware brings out all of the worst flaws in Android.

Beyond that Android is still very unpolished as an OS when you dig deeper, and it's the little things: Copy+Paste is near useless, the fast-app switcher doesn't let you kill apps, and the way the "menu" function is handled drives me nuts. I wish the Android team would focus their efforts on things like these instead of what I consider to be a bunch of political posteuring. I don't give a crap about Flash, but I do care when I can't listen to Pandora because Sprint TV won't shut up, or when I can't copy part of an email to send to a client.

And it's much slower than an iPhone4 with iOS4. About the only thing faster is a N1 with Froyo.

It's a personal gripe, but the phone is too large to use with one hand.
