SPRINT HTC EVO 4G or SPRINT SAMSUNG EPIC 4G
Now this one is the big question im kinda stumped in. They both run 4G I know the EVO has 0.3 bigger screen, HDMI port, .5 GIG bigger Ram , 3.0MP bigger camera with dual flash, and kickstand. LOL. Does the physical keyboard make a big difference? Will you return your EVO and get the GALAXY S PRO ?

So, actually, the Evo is the worse of the bunch for ROM....note, this does not include outdated Android phones.
And it looks like the Galaxy S has two led flashes, while the Galaxy S Pro has one.
As to the keyboard and looks, to each his own.

Both look like great phones, (heck most any android phone on the market today seems to be hitting it out of the park), but you got to look a usability. I would want to play with the UI before making a judgement call. We all know that Sense is awesome. We will see.

But yesterday I got into the beta program for Swype, and it is freakin' amazing! Within the first few minutes I was already typing faster than I used to on my Treo 700's physical keyboard.

Ever see the Samsung moment let alone feel how heavy it is. now take that same concept add nearly an inch, plus more plastic and more slider hardware and were looking at carrying a brick in your pocket, not to mention in the past sliders have always had problems and samsung has fallen short on supporting phones after they release, i will stay with my evo and be perfectly fine

The Evo is way too sexy. The Samsung Galaxy S looks exactly like the iPhone. Why get the immitation...if that's the look you want, just go with the iPhone.
About the only thing...okay maybe two....are the Super AMOLED screen and maaayyybe the supposed eternal battery life that it's said to have.
That's just me though. I personally am glad this is coming out. Variety is the spice of life. The more the better IMO.

I am guessing the Galaxy S Pro is getting the same processor as the Galaxy S? That Hummingbird under the hood is supposed to be very good at 3d rendering clocking in at 90 million triangles per second (Snapdragon does 22 million if I remember right) as mentioned in that preview video over at Engadget of the Galaxy S.
That is the one and only thing I am envious off. I like the Evos screen, so the one the Galaxy must really be good looking. But the screen alone wouldn't be reason enough to switch.

I think the Galaxy looks nice, especially the screen technology, but like many, just not keen on the iPhone look and feel -- not just with the hardware, but also with the software! Of course, this is adaptable no doubt, like most Android things are. I think I'll stick with EVO for now, I'd be far more interested in upgrading in a years time to see how things have developed, and also, by the time this is released, I think the EVO will be nicely established with good community support. Still, it's great there will be so many more Android choices in the future!

Coming from an iPhone, using the EVO keyboard is wonderful. I do like having an external keyboard for games, doing SSH/console stuff, and the faster navigation (start typing to search, spacebar to scroll down).
However after my very poor experience with my Motorola Backflip being locked down and not getting firmware upgrades, I'm really nervous to use non-HTC phones. I know it takes HTC a long time to upgrade firmware, but so far they have done better than moto has with blur phones. I flip back and forth on if I like Sense better than default Android, but I certainly like blur and touchwiz worse than default. Plus I think Samsung locks down their phones more.
The camera is probably actually a win for Samsung. The 5MP on the backflip was pretty much just as good as the EVO, and Samsung is a real camera company. Also I think video on the Galaxy S is supposed to be better than the EVO, which kinda stinks.
The other issue is the screen. I have a very hard time seeing my EVO screen in sunlight, and it sounds like the AMOLED screens are even worse. Samsung claims the Super AMOLED is great, but I think that remains to be seen. If the Galaxy comes out and reviews say the screen is better in direct sunlight than the EVO, and it gets as hacked as the EVO has been, I'm going to want one. Otherwise, I'm very happy with the EVO.
