    1. Evo 4G.
    2. B.
    3. Yes.
    4. No LTE in my area till mid 2013. Don't need a kickstand, don't care for a NFC/Google Wallet or dedicated camera button.

    My answer to number 4 is optional, I can live or live without them, but the redesign really killed my wow factor.

    Lack of replaceable battery makes the phone useless if used for more than a few hours a day.
    It's a deal breaker. Every cell phone since the dawn of time with the exception of the iphone has had the ability to swap batteries. If I wanted an Iphone, I'd have one, but I prefer function over jewelry.

    1) Yes, Evo 3D who also owned OG Evo, prior-to
    2) Yes, most likely, pending a few reviews and LTE data speed tests...
    3) No, it doesn't look half-bad to me.
    4) Only if the GSIII were to be announced and it outdoes the Evo 4G LTE; then I'd patiently wait for that one.

    Still rockin' the OG EVO (w/CM7).

    2. Will you upgrade to the 4G LTE?

    Probably...

    3. Has the redesign affected your answer to #2?

    I'm reserving final judgement until I can hold one in my hand, but the new EVO looks pretty bad in comparison to the One X. Too busy with the transitions from matte to red to shiny and the silver around the edge. The body is too angular, and the edges of the front glass are awkwardly squared off. OTOH I really like the kickstand on my EVO so I'm happy to see that feature.

    Lack of removable battery doesn't bother me in the least. SD card is similarly uninteresting -- I've got an 8G card in my EVO and now that I'm using Google Music it's mostly empty.

    4. What other factors might affect your answer

    Waiting to see what the SGIII looks like. Waiting for actual user reviews of the phone. I might decide to switch to ATT or Verizon based on other factors.

    3. Has the redesign affected your answer to #2? Slightly, not too pumped about the glossy back part and how scratched up it will get. But, it won't stop me from getting it
    4. What other factors might affect your answer? Galaxy Nexus announcement and specs, but I am in Houston one of the first LTE markets so I have that going for me

    Not sure when LTE is coming in and how great it will be in my area, particularly for battery life.

    1. Are you a Evo 4G/3D owner?

    Yes. Or rather, I was. I bought the original EVO on release day. I swapped it out for the Epic 4G when that was released and gave my EVO to my wife.

    2. Will you upgrade to the 4G LTE?

    No.

    3. Has the redesign affected your answer to #2?

    Yes. I can't get over how much I do not like the design of the EVO version. When I first saw the HTC One X, I thought it was the most beautiful phone I've ever seen. It's such an elegent looking phone. I normally don't like white phones but the One X is GORGEOUS. HOWEVER... it has obvious flaws. No removable battery and no SD card. THAT IS THE ONLY THING SPRINT HAD TO CHANGE. It would be the GREATEST android phone to be released. I would buy it in a heartbeat. I'd buy it twice.

    Did they figure a phone that looked that beautiful AND had every sensible feature would be too unfair on the market? Did they have to make it ugly? Ugh... I'm not getting it out of spite.

    4. What other factors might affect your answer

    Nothing. I may be switching to AT&T just so I can get the One X. I hate hate the new phone's design THAT much.

    1. Yep, EVO 4G.
    2. C, most likely. My OG EVO is still serving me well so I will wait for the quad-core LTE phones.
    3. Yes, to a degree. The One X is a quad-core phone and the 4G LTE is dual-core.
    4. The availability of LTE where I live. I have solid WiMax coverage right now, so until LTE has been rolled out in my town, I don't really see the use in upgrading just yet.

    a) tired of Sense even though this latest iteration may not be as bad

    b) Samsung is working to make its Exynos quad-core LTE compatible in a quite unique way and with 22 months between upgrades I need something that will be future-proof

    I'm a huge HTC fan. I've had both the 4G and the 3D. Now I'm rocking a Samsung 4G Touch. I think I want to get the HTC LTE, but no way if DC metro isn't lit with LTE.
    I'm not seeing anyone taking that into consideration. Would you guys seriously upgrade if the new LTE network isn't up and running in your market?

    1. Yes Evo 4G
    2. a
    3. Not at all. Bigger battery, SD slot, and a stand. Nothing negative about that. The only design gripe I have is the cheap looking plastic on the top. Looks like you can potentially change it in the future since it's removable (I think).
    4. The biggest thing that I can see wrong with this phone is the non-removable battery. They made it so much better than the One X....why not just go that extra mile lol. Even though I have not been one to replace my battery at all, I can definitely notice the age. If I was ok with keeping this hardware, I could change my battery and possibly have that much more battery life. That being said, nothing short of a GSIII announcement with specs is going to stop me from getting this phone lol.

    YES

    NO

    Sprint's LTE Deployment may affect the timing of my purchase. If they don't get LTE down in DC relatively quickly, I'll hang on to my WiMax until it's available and then I'll make my purchase on an LTE phone.

    Sprint is is still doing the early early upgrade program until the 15th of this month I believe. If you call sprint and talk to someone insisting about the buyout program they'll transfer you to someone who knows their stuff. At the very most you'll be paying 165 for the buy your way out of the contract. But at the very least it'll be cheaper than off contract priceing.

    Search for " sprint Early buyout program" on Engadget for more details. :-)
    Thanks. Just looked it up. The 14th of this month is the deadline. So if I spend the $165, I assume I don't have to use the upgrade right away... instead I can wait until June when the Evo comes out. Do you know for sure?

    Here's the info in case anyone else in interested. Sprint launches early upgrade promo, wants you to stay and chat awhile - Engadget

    Like the new design but since Sprint did away with yearly upgrades I'm leaving for Verizon. To take things away from loyal customers to get the failPhone upsets me, plus VZW's LTE network in Iowa is too good not to use on a daily basis.
