    Default What do you think? EVO vs EVO shift

    Would you leave your Evo for the shift?

    I don't know yet.. chances are NO, but then again - shoot, I would have to pre- test it first.

    Leaving no but it will be added to my second line. Physical keyboard, new processor, better battery life. How could you lose on it.

    If it had a front-facing camera, I'd think about it. Wifey and I both have EVO's, and I like the video chat function.

    I am not a fan of slider phones in the first place. I have seen too many instances where the slide breaks or rips the cables. (thats partly why i am sworn off of flip phones too)

    No. No interest in going to a smaller phone (once you go 4.3, you never go back).

    Also, sliding qwerty is just another moving part that can break / adds bulk (besides, I like the on-screen keyboard = Swype).

    I'll leave the EVO when they come out with an EVO Pro / EVO Deluxe / EVO with Cheese that has a dual core processor, more RAM, internal memory etc.

    Didn't you love the oreo effect and closing it, only to knock the battery loose and have it suddenly shut off?!?

    It certainly made me swear off of them, too!

    Lol wow. To each there own I guess but I think it has many advantages over the og evo ( feels weird saying that when its not even a year old yet. ) but hey that's the beauty of it we have choice.

    My wife has the Epic and I cringe everytime she opens the slider keyboard. It's like having bad flashbacks! I want 0 wobble in my phone!

    I would not trade my Evo for the EVO Shift. I came from the Pre as well and the slider became very loose. The larger screen, faster speed, and front cam come in handy.

    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

    If you gave me the choice right now, I'd probably go with the shift, performance is better and the keyboard is a bonus. However I'm perfectly happy with my evo

    No way. Not going to take a step back.

    Sliders remind me too much of the dumb blonde who went to jail.

    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.
