    Default Coming from Palm Pre

    Got my EVO today and looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove it. The Pre is cool, but it ain't no EVO. And Mr. Jobs; you and your new iPhone can still kiss ALL of my backside.

    any other comments? I was relentless on moving from the Pre, but after having the EVO for a day or so, I won't look back

    I just got it this morning, and since I've got a bunch of work to do I haven't had much time to mess with it. But what little I have explored has left me extremely impressed. I may get another WebOS device at some point, but I'm already digging this phone much more than my Pre. Customization and options are cool.

    I still love my Pre......nothing is better for size and feel.


    But the EVO is a monster device and I love it too.

    Having both is real noce.

    GMoney; Welcome to the Evo. Like you, I came from the Pre and I'm not looking back! I loved WebOS, but Android really has some advantages (and we're not even talking about the superior hardware!).

    Pre is an awesome one hand device.....and great for my shorts in the summer.

    I love the EVO but its huge, which makes it an awesome device for Biz users.

    The size of the Evo also makes it awesome for us with bad eyes and sausage-thick fingers. lol.

    much better for reading news and the web and Dropbox (docs). But for typing a quick SMS or email Pre is still better.......or at least for me it is.

    I really like google voice integration on the Evo too.

    I am very lucky to have both

    Yeah, one of my issues was reading. I never surfed the web on the Pre because I couldn't read anything without a bunch of pinching and zooming. And since it also doesn't reformat the text it's a pain.

    I can see I'm only scratching the surface of the EVO, and this thing is way cool.

    Well, except the update that forced me to do a hard reset and wipe the device.... Good thing I didn't have anything on there yet.

    Is it possible to "brick" the EVO? I am currently using a Pre and probably switching in the near future. (I'll admit--if Sprint wouldnt have been sold out on Friday night, I would probably own the EVO now. Its awesome)

    I have had the Pre since day 1, been soing homebrew/patches since it was on filecoaster. I love to see tethering hack already available for the EVO. Just wondering if you can reload stock android, like using webos doctor? can someone explain for me?

    Love the EVO so much more than the Pre. The only things I miss are swiping apps upwards to close them (much quicker, more convenient, and makes me feel certain I've closed them). I don't like using Advanced Task Killer or whatever to be sure that apps aren't hogging my memory.

    I'm still getting used to typing with the on-screen keyboard, but I think I'll be more than happy with it in the end. Other than that, this phone is simply the best out there.

    I bought the Palm Pre on day one last year.... Loved the phone to death, but the hardware on the Pre was just terrible. I just purchased the Evo and I absolutely love it! Wasnt sure if I was going to like the 4.3 in screen but it still fits in my pocket and surfing the web, it's like a tablet. If you are on the edge, GET ONE!

    I really miss my Pre...how it fit in my hand, the all black incognito look, sliding the keyboard out, and gliding from card to card. The Evo does the things I want my phone to do without lag plus has much more customization. Most of the features available will probably not be used once the novelty wears off...but just knowing I CAN is a big plus. What's bugging me right now is trying to figure out how to do things on this phone that were so simple on the Pre like add my own music for ringtones and notifications.

    Create folders on your SD card called ringtones and notifications. Place your files I'm there and you will be able to select them as ringtones and notifications in the phone.

    I had a good run with my Pre - had it since it came out a year ago but, ultimately it's lack of Flash led me to the Evo.

    Exactly my situation and thoughts. On another note I picked up my ipod touch yesterday and couldn't believe the size difference and how it felt like a kids toy. It is going to take a lot for me to switch back to palm and I loved that o/s.

    There are a number of things I'm missing from the Pre, mostly related to Synergy. Something as simple as typing an email to someone on my firm's GAL takes a whole lot more effort than it did on the Pre. Also stuff like having to unlock with a full keyboard instead of that number pad on the Pre.

    But I'll get used to it, more than worth it for all the bonuses you get with the EVO.

    Traitors need to be punished .

    Honestly I wish Palm release a new phone on Evo form factor. I played with Evo for a bit. Next thing I realized I started swiping. In addition I have to tap on the address bar to invoke keyboard. Pre is a weak body Genius while Evo is an intelligent body builder.
