Got the EVO
So I got the EVO again and have been having a blast playing with it. Hell even my GF and kids are wowed by it! And the GF doesnt usually like touch screen phones but now want one! Still absolutely amazed at its size and speed. It simply makes my Hero and any other phone look like a joke. Screen is remarkable.
Anyway, if anyone has anything specific they want to know or want me to try out let me know.

Looking at it, I doubt this would work, but...
Can the kickstand hold the phone up in portrait mode, for easier reading?
How easy is it to plug in the usb cable for charging? (Yes, seems trivial, but the usb port on my Pre has always been a pain to plug into for some reason - perhaps the design of the hole in the shell?)
Battery life was not great last night but we did a lot of playing with it. Was fully charged at about 4PM but depleted to about 25% in a few hours of pretty constant use.
The 4G is spotty in KC right now. I could get a decent signal downtown but when I went home which is north of downtown no 4G signal at all. But to be fair the network isnt officially complete.
The stand doesnt work in portrait mode, feels like it would but it is just too wobbly.
The micro USB connects easily as it is right at the bottom and no cover for it unlike that insane Pixi connection!

I can only compare it to the Hero and compared to that it is blazingly fast! Everything on the phone response instantly. Never realized just how much I waited for things to happen on the Hero. The camera is good. Typical delay as with any camera phone but with the dual flash I have gotten some pretty decent picture. Video capture was a mix bag, quality was good but the recording I did stuttered in a few places. Although it was my 15 year old recording while we were in the car so I will have to try another one to see if it was an isolated issue or not.

Hey Panzy. Thanx For the Posts!- Can u change the launcher and menu to the Vanilla 3-D Styled Nexus One version. I remember the Desire being able to swith from sense ui to stock(posted here on androidcentral). And 1 more thing hows the camera, is the same as the Droid Incredible? Android and me did a photo comparison and the Nexus One came out better. The Incredilbe had a Blueish tint to it's pics.-http://androidandme.com/2010/05/phones/the-incredible-camera-showdown-droid-incredible-vs-nexus-one
