Iphone 4 or HTC EVO 4G make your vote

Darynm

I can see there is going to be allot of people making their personal choice. I can see reasons for both.

My personal vote is against AT&T rates and service. This holds nothing against the Iphone 4.

So, EVO it is and I think it's also a great phone.

Let's get an unbiased vote count.

EVO for the reasons that you mentioned above. Sprint is definitely a better choice for dasta intensive phone plans right now. $70 + $10 gets most people everything they need. In addition to that I also believe the EVO to be a superior phone when it comes to flexibility, and level of customization.

#1: iPhone 4 weighs less

#2: Glass screen built like helicopter and train windshield glass.

#3: Evo has larger screen, thus more inches to break if dropped or accidentally hit.

#4: iPhone app store has the most awesome games. Street Fighter 4, Civilization, Metal Slug, Splinter Cell. Beat that. Plus the graphics of the phone is going to kick the Evo's butt.

#5: My pick is the iPhone 4, I have tried the Droid by Verizon, Blackberry 9700 by AT&T, Palm Pre and Palm Pre Plus, and of course the iPhone 3GS which I currently have. I also bought a Evo on Saturday and I tried it out, I returned it yesterday. It was a good phone though I can't lie, but the size is the biggest problem as well as the resolution of the phone. Battery life was...

To start again, #1, #2, and #4 are facts and have opinions in them. I am not trash talking, I am replying to the guy who said to give him some advantages, so in my opinion with facts I was giving advantages over the Evo.

#1: My opinion, Honda Civic is better than a Cadillac in some ways. Once again, opinion based. And the fact that it is lighter is a big deal to me.

#2: Which is more used, "Gorilla Glass" or the Helicopter Glass?

#3: A screen to big is annoying because it takes so much space in my pocket. I don't like carrying phones in pouches.

#4: I am a gamer, I love games. I also own a 360, PS3, Wii, PSP, and a DSi. But having these mobile games on the iPhone is awesome, plus mobile game consoles like PSP and Nintendo DS in m...

Very well said. The Iphone is an excellent device on an absolutely HORRIBLE network in AT&T. Lots of drop calls on the 3gs, not so on the Incredible. Carrier makes all the difference!

Not to mention video chat on the EVO is not limited to Wifi, neither is video chat on the EVO limited to a single app.

The EVO can do video calling on Fring etc. on 3G or 4G network; I've seen it on both; and thats FREE - theres a better option.. that costs $5 built in the phone

The iphone does video chat ONLY on wifi.... Eh?
...
bfletcher78

Jun 11, 2010, 10:04 AM
You'll only be doing video calling if you have access to WiFi at the time. And if you expect that to change anytime soon... take a look at how long it took AT&T to let you tether your phone...

yea i seen the video chat on the evo and the quality is not as good as the iphone who cares if u need wifi....most places i go there is wifi...and its funny how all you guys are pumping up sprint when sprint is one of the cell phone companys that is headed out of buisness....if they are so good than y arent they a top company 3 years ago forget that 6 months ago no one was saying hey sprints the best alot people i kno hate sprint due to no one can get ahold of them....if ur cheap and want cheap service thats fine but if sprint was all they great they wouldnt have lowered there prices to so cheap u have to remember they use to be higher than att and verizon and yall say the bill is high for verizon i seen more people complain about a crazy v...

I think that the iPhone 4G is a nicer phone and I would rather have that, HOWEVER, because of At&t versus sprints network and the pricing I would have to choose the EVO 4G to purchase with Sprint. So Its the EVO 4G over the iPhone 4 based on the network

Iphone 4 hands down... evo is great but im an apple fan. I love the fact that you say unbiased votes but then say you wont pick the iphone 4 due to networks. the vote should be on the device not the network the device is on.
...
BeanieMac

Jun 8, 2010, 9:03 PM
When you look at the iPhone 4 it is an awesome device. But the AT&T network is the biggest problem. So yes if I was picking the phone based solely on features then the iPhone wins because apple makes awesome products. Now when you factor in monthly bills and coverage think 30.00 data package vs. 10.00 tech charge and the EVO should win hands down. The iPhone 4g just makes me hype for the next iPod touch.

Seeing as Sprint's WiMax network leaves something to be desired (too little coverage) & the Evo's enormous size, I'm loathe to admit I'd go with the iPhone.

I feel so dirty.

Here is the size of the EVO

4.8" x 2.6" x 0.5"

Here is the size of the iPhone 4

4.5" x 2.31" x 0.37"

WOW. That's such a huge difference. (notice the sarcasm?)

after you add "the cage" to the iPhone it's actually bigger than the EVO

Ah, delusional Apple fanboys, there to protect their master Jobs from attacks which don't actually exist in the first place.

It's enormous to ME, sycophant. To ME. The iPhone fits better in my pocket, as I don't use whatever 'cage' you're referring to.

Geezus. Save me from ignoramuses.

Vote on EVO

The EVO can do the same thing that the iPhone can do. The only big difference is the network prices, look & feel, hardware, its all about preference. The android market is growing and the os is getting better.

I'd go with the iPhone because HSPA 7.2 is faster than Sprints "4G" network... it has been proven... and even PhoneScoop reviewed and said that HSPA 7.2 is faster.

I did read.

I read the title and it reads, "Iphone 4 or HTC EVO 4G make your vote".

If there would have been something in the quote that you quoted stating that you were talking about AT&T and T-Mobile, I would have known that you were talking about something different.

I SAID

"I'd go with the iPhone because HSPA 7.2 is faster than Sprints "4G" network... it has been proven... and even PhoneScoop reviewed and said that HSPA 7.2 is faster."

SOMEONE REPLIED

"They're actually talking about T-MOBILE'S HSPA+ Network which is faster than Sprint's "4g" "

I SAID

"but they're BOTH HSPA 7.2, both GSM, same speed lol think about it"

Might wanna read that again...

I knew what you were talking about... after I went back and read the 'other' replies.

I was simply stating that the message quoted didn't say anything about what you were comparing so I just assumed that you were talking about the phones in the title.

My EVO is coming to me in the mail tommorrow Smile

I like the iPhone, I think it is a good device with tins of capabilities. But you have to jail-break it to get the same features that come stock on Android. The new iPhone is dazzling, of this I am positive. But, yet again, it is stuck on AT&T's network, which my wife had for several months before she left and I convinced her to get a Palm Pre instead of her BB Curve 8310 because the customer service was horrendous beyond all measure.. I can get the Evo now if I want it.

BONUS! I can use UNLIMITED DATA on the Evo vs. a 2GB cap on the new iPhone. Sure, tethering prices are different ($30 vs $20), but offering Netflix on a device and then capping the data limits is a slap in the face. So, ...

people don't actually hate on the IPHONE, it's actually a nice device. it's crApple they tend to hate on and for good reasons listed as infinitum elsewhere. fact is both of these phones are currently the best phones on the planet so the choice is really more personal. but when the moto x hits all bets are off!! yowzzzaaa
