    I know this will take a bit longer to answer, but... Battery life vs. the Sprint Galaxy Nexus? This might be the deciding factor for me.

    Never had a phone on Sprint but I do like this phone.
    He said he was going to be offline for a several hours earlier in this thread. I'm sure he'll get around to it.

    But yes Sprints poor data speeds are legendary at this point regardless of device.

Why should I have to pay for a high end phone, then pay for service, and then get SPAMMED by a Sprint app that cannot be opted-out of, silenced, deactivated, or removed. It makes me FURIOUS!

    Android 4.0 is *supposed* to let us have full control over ALL apps. So that is why I am asking if Sprint somehow disabled our ability to disable Sprint Zone. I am glad I am not the only one who is annoyed.

    With solid use, how's the battery life?

    What type of quality do you get from the pictures? [comparison pics to the iPhone 4S would be awesome]

    HA! $100? You haven't been following the news. The deductible is being raised to "up to $200", remember? That certainly means $200- what phone is more expensive than the Evo LTE? And that is in addition to raising the monthly fee from $8 to $11! I really have no idea what I am going to do about insurance now... I pay for it month after month for YEARS, have *never* made any claim. And if something happens, after paying many hundreds of dollars in monthly fees, they would want to slap me $200 to get some "refurbished" (used) phone, certainly in worse condition than my perfectly kept phones? It is incredibly unfair.

    I would like to see answers to some of the questions too. But we have to give Phil a chance to enjoy the rest of his trip and then get home and settled in.

    On the dropped wifi, I think people are also having dropped wifi on One X, so I'm not sure if it is totally a hardware issue, or partly a ICS problem. It almost seems like the Galaxy Nexus phone goes to sleep or something. I used Foxfi (on t-mobile) in place of the built in hotspot and it was better, but still dropped connections. I was 1/4 mile from a tower and the phone was in a window facing the tower and it was still dropping the wifi hotspot!
    You pointed out what has me thinking that it may be more of an ICS issue since I also noticed people on the GNexus and One X boards both having wifi and radio signal issues. I'm wondering if it is something that might be fixed through an ICS update from Google and the carriers rather than a Samsung hardware issue.?? Possible??

    How is the video capture? I really like the iPhone 4's video capture especially when shooting live shows (you don't get that muffled bass noise). It looks like the evo lte has dual microphones do you think that will make a difference?

    But if you do have an issue you have to turn in your phone for a long long time. My Evo 4G stopped charging, BB had the phone for a month and a half while they 'lent' me a beat up LG Optimus.

    Of course this is run from your desktop with adb installed and the device hooked to the computer.

    Deductible on this one will be $150 for loss/theft/damage

    Thanks, Phil!
    It's always less than 16 once it's formatted and partitioned, plus they have to load the ROM.

    $11/mo, yes. Deductible will be $150 for the Evo. $200 is reserved for... something else... 0_o. If you think the insurance isn't a good deal, don't get it. Don't whine when a used one on CL or eBay costs more than $150 though.

    It cant be uninstalled but you can disable notifications.

    You can turn off notifications in the Sprint Zone app but if the phone gets an OTA update (like my Epic Touch 4G did) it resets the notifications so you have to turn them off again.
