It would have been a very, very difficult decision if the EVO had been available on VZW. I probably would have had to wait to hold both in my hand before I made my decision, same as if the N1 had been available. The Incredible has no other competition on VZW right now, so the choice was very clear. And I am very, extremely happy with this device.

*Size - some people prefer flip phones and sliders too. Some prefer to read fully presented webpages and use a keyboard with more natural spacing. EVO is better.
*AMOLED - Have you tried to use the Incredible screen in open sunlight?? Yea I love brighter colors if I have to use two hands to provide shade for my phone to read it /sarcasm off. EVO wins
*Cost - Do an apples to apples comparison of equal plans and Sprint is consistently cost-competitive against other carriers. 450minutes and unlimited data, text = $10 diff to the benefit of Sprint versus Verizon. EVO wins.
*Speed - No we don't know the answer yet so why don't we just not comment?
As for your other points:
*Wifi HotSpot - Wherever your laptop is at, do you have your phone with you? The answer is yes. And since I pay $59.99 for a 5GB capped Mobile broadband for my lappy from Verizon - $29.99 just saved me 30bucks with Sprint with no bandwidth caps. So yea Verizon can SUCK IT.
*Screen Size - yea and chicks say size doesn't matter too /sarcasm off
*4G/WiMax - since most the cities haven't been fully lit up yet - let's hold off on the sniping since every review has shown 4G to be faster than 3G in all cases. Whether it is reaching Sprint's advertised rate versus reality, that's yet to be told. But hey don't listen to the guy who gets barely .5mb/s download throughput on Verizon's supposedly superior 3G service in some locations and almost 2mb/s in others..
*Front Facing Cam - I'll wait till someone posts a detail review of the QIK app before I open my yapper and pretend to talk for 'a lot of people'
Trust me I'm not banging Verizon (I use it, my wife has an Eris) - but dam these emo posts from folks nibling at every little detail to find fault where there is an obvious benefit just crack me up.

Speed wise, from the reviews, it looks like it's the same as the Incredible (It has the same core does it not?)
Both phones are great, both phones are Android. So in the end we all win.</awesome>

As far as mentioning the speed issue, I mentioned it specifically because others in this thread were making silly claims like "there's no way the EVO is slower".

As far as their customer service goes, maybe I've just had bad luck at my store? They've always been pretty unwavering even when speaking to management. I actually had to call *611 in their store and talk to customer service to finally get my issue resolved. I always paid on time as well. If money is no issue to people I definitely think that coverage wise VZW is the way to go. I don't think I ever had a dropped call with them, which is a far cry from my experience with AT&T.

Honestly it could just be the build quality between the different phones (from evo to evo). Maybe that's why some reviewers were saying it was slower or some have said that the call quality wasn't that great and some said that the call quality in fact did sound great. In my experience with the evo I did find the earpiece speaker to be on the soft side though. I will let you guys know if there is a difference between build quality between the mass market phone and the pre market phones.

I'd consider getting the Incredible if it were on Sprint and supported 4G, just because it's more pocketable and has more internal memory. But I'd never switch carriers just for a phone, since all of them are bound to be obsolesced by something else in a few months. I'm going with the Evo since it's the one Snapdragon Android phone on Sprint that runs on 4G.

I'll never understand why people are trying to go to arms over 2 phones that are very very close to one another.
I'd bet other than shell/screen and some carrier specific preloaded stuff and radios, the Incredible/Evo are essentially identical.
Incredible = best phone on Verizon
Evo = best phone on Sprint.
We shouldnt be fighting amongst our HTC friends, but rather be making fun of the iPhone noobs on AT&T

The Evo is the first phone I've seen (well except the Incredible) that has made me want to finally put my Centro to rest. I'm really gonna miss my Palm apps.

I have an EVO 4G, it's from Google I/O (they gave them to developers with a month of free service) and tne phone is awesome but this is what I noticed that is strange and hope it gets fixed in 2.2 froyo:
1. The YouTube app is a little buggy, when you go to a video and try to go back the screen stays black and I had to just press the home button because it wouldn't do anything
2. Sometimes the scrolling lags, not often but sometimes it was choppy
3. The weather apps don't update sometimes for a while, so you need to refresh it yourself
4. When you take pictures that are clear, the picture is blurry when you view it but when you zoom in on the picture a little bit the picture is crisp, you can wait and wait but the picture stays blurry until you zoom into picture, even just a little bit of zooming in will make the picture look how it should look...weird I know

no way the incredible is better, the EVO is currently the best phone in the world, IMO and besides, if you want a phone with a screen that is hard to see outside then go with the incredible, other than that, the EVO is better in every way...
of course, i believe that you should choose the best carrier for your money first and then choose the phone, if you have good sprint and verizon coverage where you always are, then the EVO is the BEST phone in the world, IMO
