Both are fast.
The evo has that infamous 30fps cap but there has been some noticeable lag in the UI I heard.
Otherwise, are you going to root?
Because with a performance rom I get no lag period and there is a big speed and battery boost.
I would look at in-depth reviews of both.
If root and not so heavy 3d gaming I suggest the evo. I have a lot of 3d games on my evo that run great.
But technically the hummingbird is faster ... it is heavily faster in the graphics department.

You need to look at the total package... With the EVO your getting Android 2.2 and (IMO) a much better UI (Sense) vs what Samsung uses... 8 mp camera on the EVO vs 5 on the Epic. Screen your looking at 4 inch for the Samsung vs 4.3 on the EVO... The EVO is going to be bigger but not so much bigger it should make a difference.... Samsung has a higher res screen that appears to be more crisp.....
Plus you have to figure in the slide out keyboard...... I personally HATE slide out Keyboards... with a 4 inch screen you shouldn't need the slide out keyboard but to each his own.... After watching the hell my brother went through on his Pre and it's slide out keyboard it's just some thing else that can break.. The more moving parts the more likely it is going to break....

Epic 4.90 x 2.54 x 0.56 inches (124 x 65 x 14 mm)
Evo 4.80 x 2.60 x 0.50 inches (122 x 66 x 13 mm)
The only difference is the Evo's screen is stretched out to 4.3. The size shouldn't matter at all. But everything else you said is spot on. And I hate slide out keyboards too lol...

This is long and well worth the read.
Hummingbird vs. Snapdragon: The 1 GHz Smartphone Showdown | AlienBabelTech
I'll put it this way, 99% of the stuff out there will look exactly the same on the Evo vs. the Epic. But all the other features and capabilities way heavy on the Evo side
(of course all of this gets thrown out the window if you prefer a bulky keyboard phone like the Epic)

When choosing between the EVO, Droid X, Droid 2, Epic or any of the other Galaxy S phones the physical size of the screen should be a moot point. You really have to figure out what your looking for and what your going to do with the phone and then find out which carrier works best in your area....
I don't care if you have a 5 ghz quad core processor with 10 gig of ram and 100 gig of memory a 4.3 inch paper thin full 1080p LED screen and the phone weights less than an ounce and gets 100 fps and has a battery that gives you 10 days of video play back on a single charge....
If the network is garbage in your area none of those specs mean a damn thing... I learned that the hard way.....

Snapdragon IMHO is just as fast when it comes to day to day use, what the Hummingbird excels at is the GPU which makes the graphics run incredibly smooth... but raw processing speed they are very close if optimized correctly
in fact Verizon people still say that the Incredible is indeed the fastest Droid of the bunch in terms of overall speed vs the X and D2 (and it runs Snapdragon)
3D games are another story though although my EVO plays NOVA just fine and thats about as much graphics power i need... (even though more would not hurt)
