Laughing Laughing Laughing Thats comedy! So Apple adds a couple of features that other phones already have (other then screen res), they call it new and all the dumb ass apple fanboys buy it. Better then the EVO? Yeah right. Keep dreaming. Laughing Laughing Laughing

That's the thing about Apple tho. They add things to the iPhone other phones have had for months to years and try to make it seem like they came up with the idea. Of course the iPhone fanboys go nuts for it and rush out to get it. Look at those that bough the iPhone, went out got the 3G, then next year rushed out and got 3Gs. Now they're gonna grab iPhone 4 as soon as it's released.

In a video Apple bragged about video chat and how "they" are bring it to the world. Ummm, last I checked HTC beat them to that with the EVO 4G. iPhone 4 does seem like it'll be the best iPhone yet. But pretty much all it's new features are only new to it, other phones already do them.

When it comes down to it, and this is for the fanboi's for both Android and the iPhone. Both the EVO and iPhone (as well as several other androids) are great phones. So lets all relax.

Funny how Jobs could not get a wifi signal to work on the new device today at the conference. Great device yeah, but only as good as the network that supports it and AT&T SUCKS!

To be fair, I think the phone was on wifi mode when that incident occurred.

i agree completely! the only differences between the 3gs and the 4 are: added frequency WCDMA 2100, weighs more at a Weight of 4.8 oz
(136g), Dimensions of 4.5" x 2.31" x 0.37"
(114 x 59 x 9.4 mm), Battery Life Talk: 7 hr,
Display 640 x 960 pixels, Adjustable Text Size, Data Tethering, Camera has 5+ megapixel, and Video Sharing. WOW! big whoop! your screen is the same size as before and the aesthetics of the handset are not as appealing as previous models. get real apple! EVO has it all and a bag of chips! Razz

Ok so you tell me what the evo does that the iPhone 4 can't? Regardless of previous models of the iPhone. You forget to mention Ios4.0 that changes the os completely. Yes apple is late on some features but that's fine with me because the way those features have been integrated into the o.s.Is better than any other o.s.

-HDMI out

-Wireless Hotspot

-Larger screen (much nicer for media viewing)

-Kickstand (see above)

-unlimited data (for tethering and off the phone)

-widgets (normal and lock screen)

Os4.0 changes the os completely, you're right, it brings the os up to the modern era.

Oh, and apple's multitasking? That's android multitasking with tighter app approval process.

Keep believing whatever they say. it keeps you from getting what the company is truly capable of.

HDMI out- convints yes cool yes but not practical I would much rather have my phone in my hands/pocket while I watch a movie.

-Wireless Hotspot- Ok has nothing to do with the phone has to do with AT&T.....

-Larger screen- I would love a larger screen it would be awesome but im satisfied with 3.5 screen. dont need a tv in my pocket.

-Kickstand- lmao really?? who cares.... I can buy a case that has one if I really cared.

-unlimited data- I'm grandfathered so I have unl data still as for tethering would be nice again but not a deal breaker...

-widgets- only thing I 100% agree with I don't understand why they havnt done this but I'm sure they will.

And as far as multitasking goes it is nothing like android what so ever... tha...

-It's practical for others yet. You asked for one thing the evo had over the iphone, this is one of them. Think about it. If you rented a movie on itunes, wouldn't you love the ability to plug your phone into your TV and watch it with your friends instead of blowing MORE money on apple TV?

-No, wireless hotspot is an android thing. Sprint is marketing it, but it's an OS level integration, not an app.

-we're not talking your preferences though, we're talking advantages. larger screen is an advantage.

-But you're a current iphone customer. If someone was choosing between the two devices, this is a SERIOUS competitive advantage.

-They haven't done it because it removes consistancy from the interface. You might see lockscree...

Yeah, you're right I guess i forgot how many dropped calls a day I had on my Iphone 3gs with AT&T or where they rank against the other carriers in call quality, NOT!

Ok so AT&T has nothing to do with how amazing the phone is. You just sound like a dumba$$.

The phone is only as good as the network supports it you dumb A-hole. I know mor about the industry then you could in 10 lifetimes.

So what you're saying is thatthe EVO is the biggest piece of junk ever?

Besides that Sprint's network actually isn't that bad. it's their customer service that has the bad rep

AT&T has ranked last in percentage of dropped calls, for let me count the years.

No, I'm saying the iPhone is a wonderful device but is limited by the crappy network they are on. The evo is also a wonderful device especially as 4 g coverage grows.

yeah your right I wouldnt know anything about the wireless industry Iv'e only been working in it for 7 years..... and as for AT&T's network idk about the rest of the U.S. but I live in texas and have traveled all over Texas, Arkansas and Louisanna and have no issues. While sitting at my house I hit over 2.88mb and at my friends house I hit over 3.22mb all day long. and have never dropped a call in my home town where the majority of my usage is. everyone I know that has sprint hates it. im always hearing complaints about the coverage and slow data speeds so your telling me that the evo is worthless due to sprints network?? oh and about the 4g who cares if its only 1mb faster?? to pay extra is insane. and I can send any one a printscreen of m...
