    Serious question this time:
    Is there an SD slot? I thought I remember you saying there was at the launch event, but didn't see it in the leaked manual.

    Now that you've fondled both the SGSIII and the new EVO, since the specs are comparable, which one do you prefer? I'm up for a new phone, coming from the original epic and I'm not sure which one to get...
    Same situation. I like the look of the GS3 more hardware-wise, but for some reason, I'm being drawn towards sense...even though I've never been a fan of it in the past. I really want to want the evo.

    How are 3G speeds? Signal strength? Any better or worst than expected?

    Can you drive it over here to the Destin Harbor so I can talk about it on my morning show? Then can you leave it here when you leave?

    Do some bluetooth headsets work as a camera remote control like on the One X?

    Yes it has an SD card slot under the shiny rear cover.

    I'm deathly curious about the little details the specs don't cover, mostly surrounding the Haptic Feedback and Notification Light. On devices like the Rezound the haptic strength made it hard to use Swype and I wonder if that's comparable here. And I've just heard nothing about any notification LED action, let alone something Light Flow configurable etc.

    In summary for skimming Phil / rest-of-everyone:
    -Haptic feedback strength / usability
    -Notification Light strength / usability

    Thanks for your time, great job with the everything

    I know he said 'ask me anything' but jeeps.. Ha

    Real question : I read the entire manual and while it's said the physical button is 2-step, there's no mention of it in the manual. Is it? Also, how does said button work on, say, a powered off display and/or a locked screen?

    So does the SD card add more to this? 9GB plus the card?

    ooooh, can't wait for Phil's full review

    I mean, we already know it is mostly identical to the One X, just lots better. I would love to know specifically the things that might be DIFFERENT from the One X:

    1) What Sprint *might* have done to try and ruin it (like the stupid "Sprint Zone" or other apps that can't be removed or disabled). CAN YOU DISABLE SPRINT ZONE???

    2) Speakerphone/speaker quality. (The Evo 3D's speaker is horrible)

    3) If you use lock screen security, do you still have to go through TWO LOCK SCREENS every time, like you do on the OG Evo and the Evo 3D?

    4) How does the WiFi range/strength compare to your other devices?

    5) Can it be rooted with the recently released One X root method? (Not sure if you are willing to try that quite yet )

    Thanks

    Didn't recognize your hands without all the pink goop on them.

    My only hesitation is the embedded battery. Since I'll have to keep this thing for 2 years before my next upgrade, I'm wondering if the battery will hold up that long without pooping out. And, if it does **** out, what will it cost to have it replaced at a repair center, even if they can replace it. If that were to happen, am I protected by the Total Equipment Protection plan? It's not certain if my other choices will even be available on Sprint; the Note and the SG III. The EVO is a great device, but.... Ahhhh...decisions, decisions, decisions.

    I am not liking the 3G/gps/wifi signal strength of my new Galaxy Nexus. Should I return it tomorrow and get an EVO LTE? Or will the Nexus likely improve with updates?
    I just returned a Galaxy Nexus (GSM) after a 14 day trial. The radio's, wi-fi, and GPS are crap. Kept dropping wifi and hotspot. GPS was unusable indoors and slow to lock outdoors, weak radio signals. Don't know if it was hardware or software problems, but it made me fall in love all over with my OG EVO! Killed my interest in anything Samsung.

    Thanks. That is exactly what I am seeing and will be returning it. I can't afford to have signal issues like this during business travel use.

    Are u getting EVO LTE instead or should we wait?

    Ugh I hate Sprint Zone, out of all the garbage bloatware Sprint slaps onto its phones, that app is useless to me. I hope the EVO has the ability to uninstall Sprint bloatware but i doubt that

    Is it worth upgrading from the epic 4g touch? does it lag? How's the picture and video quality? That's it lol
    The specs say "no lag".
