Nope...wouldnt do it.....the only real difference I'm seeing is the physical keyboard....and coming from the PRE I email and text alot and the keyboard took the toll....becoming loose and even lost a screw so i'll stick to the version 1 EVO
Ya ya it something new but they are sorta downgrading alot of thing I'm not going to name but if you own and Evo like me then you saw what was going on speedy what ever don't care when your loosing so much and adding more weakening part that are deff going to brake soon or later and I will say like alot of people are saying now I'm sticking with the BIG SIMPLY PERFECT EVO :-) SORRY 800 MHZ processer I'm happy with my mid range 1ghz old chip haha and front facing video camera
Lol of course that's why there are a million different phones for android lol I mean alot hugh tall small odd haha but that really is up to the user to tap in to the potential of android :-) love choices and I'm hooked on my new Evo
Absolutely not. I cant stand sliders. Also I think it looks terrible. There's WAY too much wasted space on the bottom. It looks really weird. While it may be faster than the original Evo, the Evo is still fast enough. NO FFC, no HDMI, no kickstand, smaller screen.. ya I'll pass..
And just for the record.. Even though it's rated at "only 800mhz", it's gonna be at least as fast as the 1ghz Evo, possibly even slightly faster. But still not enough for me to switch over. Not a chance in hell
Well the Shift has a better Snapdragon chip, even though it is clocked lower. It houses the faster Adreno 205 GPU. The Evo has the 200... So the Shift is the better phone. The Adreno 200 tested almost a 30fps bench on Nenamark, where the Adreno 205 tested higher then the Hummingbird at about 60fps on Nenamark.
Ok, so I don't "need" a physical keyboard after having gotten used to the touch screen keyboard on my Evo, but the reality is (as a former Blackberry user) it's much easier to type longer emails on the go using a physical keyboard.
That being said, I don't see how they couldn't have put a 4 inch screen on this thing. Or a higher clocked processor. And the other big thing missing (if this is aimed towards business customers) is a GSM radio for international roaming. I mean the Droid 2 global with a 1.2 ghz processor, a 3.7 inch screen, and a GSM radio has been out for over a month and it's pretty much the same form factor as the shift. In comparison, this device looks like it's already 4 months outdated before it's even released.
