Attention Evo Owners - Is the phone too big?
I want a new phone and love the specs of the EVo, but it just seems massive. What do you guys think after a week or so of having it?
Can it fit in a pocket?
Is it weird to hold while talking on?
Should I get it or not?

Yes, is the biggest phone I've ever had... period. However is quite thin and feels good in the hand. After about a week I got totally used to the size and can't understand how I seemed to enjoy other punny little phones in the past.
Some will dislike the less pocket friendly size of the Evo. Others will love the wonderful big screen for video, gaming and web browsing.
As it was stated before, is a personal choice you have to make for yourself.

The size is fine for me, and I have fairly small hands. I think it's probably the maximum phone I'd want, though. No problem putting it in a front pocket, except maybe in tight jeans.PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. Otherwise, it's like calling your doctor and saying "My head hurts." Your doctor can't treat you unless he knows whether you have a headache or a concussion, and we can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they occurred.

It's odd that when I first saw it I thought it was huge, maybe even too big. But after having it for a couple of weeks, it feels just right. It even looks small at times. A friend if mine has a Hero, and my EVO dwarfs it. I do think that if it were any bigger, that it would not be believable as a phone.

First impression at the store was it was huge. Got it anyways.
After using for a day, compared it to a co-workers Incredible and later another co-workers iPhone and it really isn't physically that much bigger (bigger yes, but not overly so)....but the screen...man...I couldn't even imagine using a phone with a 3.5" screen again.
Put it in my car cradle where it's about 2 feet away, and it's beautiful to see, easy to read, easy to navigate, etc.
Screen and phone is the perfect size for me. I only fear that is that when the time comes to upgrade/replace, there won't be another decent 4.3" screen phone around.

Re: Attention Evo Owners - Is the phone too big?
Initially it feels a little big, but you quickly adjust. The only problem I have with the Evo's size is the placement of the home button all the way on the left. I have small hands and it its difficult for to reach the home button when I am holding the phone one handed. I would have preferred the home ams menu button to swap. But that is a personal preference and my own personal limitation. In the month I have owned it, the Evo has been most useful smart phone I have owned.

I think at first it's going to feel big so use up the 30 days and at the end you will have a good idea weather it's going to work or not...
