    Cool Things I've done with my other phone, that i can't do with my Evo.

    Just as the topic states-

    Post all feature(s) you miss here:

    Webos elegant multitasking - up to 35 application(s) open at one time.
    A physical keyboard, however... I'm getting use to the (Evo) virtual keyboard.

    There is nothing my Evo can't do that the Pre could do...I really don't miss the error messages that I have too many cards open when only 1 app is open, or the power button breaking off 3 times, or having to apply patches just to make the phone do what it should of done out of the box.

    I miss being able to just open my pre and type to get to whatever I want (contacts, apps, internet browsing/websites). Pressing the search button on my EVO is actually a hassle for me, and I don't know why.

    add the google search widget on your home screen and in the settings tell google search to search your phone as well as apps and anything else you'd like.

    Yea, I do remember them days. There were more complaint thread than anything else. The too many cards error - now that's a feature I certainly don't miss.

    Spend less time on my phone. Seriously, my wife gets pissed at me because I am always on my phone. All the time. Where ever we go. On the phone.

    Remember that Sprint commercial where the guy hits the other guy in the head with the phone and calls it Sprint security feature. Well I cant do that well at least not twice.

    I agree with Bnrbranding, I get the same exact thing from my wife! No gadget has ever before kicked in that jealousy attitude until the Evo!

    Have texts and IM all in one thread, with the conversion threads being sorted by who I'm talking to, not how I'm talking to them.

    I wish handscent would update their app to include gtalk, aim, yahoo, and whatnot all in one app. I get so sick of having to switch from gtalk to handscent and back. I don't even stay signed into and use all the messengers I used to because of having to have a separate app for all of them.

    Yep. Girlfriend actually GETS jealous because i'll be on my phone while we're shopping, talking, watching TV, etc. I know it's bad... there's no excuse.

    I really miss that feature very too. I'm. Optimistic that certain features might soon be compatible with androids.

    I love my EVO infinitely over my old Pre, but one real functional thing the Pre has better is audio quality on video recording and better night video recording quality. My EVOs video sounds and looks horrible for night recording. Thing that sucks is that the EVO is capable of quality, 44khz audio but HTC thought they should make it sound like 8khz crap.

    Play angry birds WITHOUT those f*cking ads and use apps like stream to me without any issues (androstream sucks). Oh yeah, there's this game called rage...

    I was wondering what the issue was with video recording with this thing. I expected it to be amazing, but I find that I get about as much in the way of artifacts and other glitchiness as I did with precorder (the homebrew solution from before Pres had a video app). I know you mentioned audio on vids, but I feel life the video isn't what I had expected.

    Maybe it's just playback that's bad, I don't know since I really don't watch videos online that I record on my phone. I'll have to check on that sometime soon.

    It may sound counter-intuitive but I may turn down the quality some to see if it helps. Like maybe the phone can't really keep up with the 720p it's rated for? I don't know...

    Still a great phone though!

    This one has more to do with a specific app, but I really miss being able to scroll back through songs that have been played in Pandora and thumbs up/down them.

    This was really handy when working out, or doing the dishes or something that you can't get your hands on the phone while a song is still playing. I hope Pandora updates and gives this functionality to android soon.

    If I'm wrong and there is a way to scroll back through songs in Pandora on here, please let me know! Thanks.

    I know the videocam app is recording audio at 8kHz. I don't know if they were trying to save on bandwidth to have the ability to shoot 720p, but to have telephone-quality audio is just dumb. Especially if you try to record something with music. I was hoping someone would have made a better 3rd party video recording app by now

    Let's see...send MMS files in Google talk app. How could my Blackberry do this but my GOOGLE phone can't. Gtalk is finnicky as hell too. Won't stay signed in, tells my friends that I am unavailable when I actually am, etc. And yes, I have explored and played around with all the settings.

    I miss a reliable email client. Granted I have not used all of the 3rd party email apps out there but the stock one has let me down a number of times. Some issues I've had: stops syncing randomly and has trouble sending/forwarding messages over wifi. I also liked being able to delete a message on my phone but still having it saved on my pc which I can't seem to do with the EVo.

    I also miss the sound and notification profiles of my blackberry which has not proven to be near as customizable on the Evo.
