OG EVO Owners, so whats your next phone?
So now with sprints lineup getting even better with the Evo 3d and the Nexus S, I seem to have myself stuck on which to choose.
are you guys also undecided? or have you made up your mind?
list which phone you have decided on and why?

I am sticking with the Evo for now. The specs of the new line of phones aren't what I am looking for. I want a dual core NVIDIA HTC phone. If that never happens, then I will get a WiFi Xoom. HTC kind of disappointed me. I have zero interest in 3D of any type. I think their tablet looks subpar too. Especially with it having Sense.

The reason I’m having problems picking is because I love vanilla android that the nexus s has, but i don't like Samsung
And the problem with the evo 3d is not being able to turn off the 3d on the screen. For the first time i don't want to get the new toy because i am afraid how battery life will be on the evo 3d
I know dual core saves battery and it has a bigger battery, but how will battery life be with the higher resolution screen, and 3d being processed all the time
Will probably wait for a review on the 3d before i decide on anything

I like the Nexus S a lot but I want a SD card slot that I can put a 32GB chip in.
Evo 3D does nothing for me. I rarely use the video recorder so Idc about 1080P. I am still kind of pissed at HTC for not fully unlocking the HDMI port. Thank god for the developers.

HTC wont use nvidia chips, they have and will always stick with snapdragon. Dont be fooled though, the latest released generation of snaps are no slouches (see thunderbolt) and i can only imagine how powerful this dual core chipset will be.
The Nexus does have a flash on the camera, one LED though, not 2.
HDMI will be supported via the micro USB that doubles as hdmi, besides DLNA support.
Only thing that i noticed, was that in this version of sense, i did not see a option to change skins as you can on the thunderbolt/Desire HD/Desire Z. Cant imagine why they'd take that out.Some say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"

does anyone else not like how the back of the device looks like? mainly the two cameras
maybe i need to see it in person to like it, or maybe its one of those things that you just get use to

I don't have any complaints with my current Evo4G.
The 3D's lack of kick stand and bad Micro/usb port placement
is enough for me to wait until the next offerings from sprint.
The micro usb is almost the same location just a bit higher up as the Thunderbolt.
Read up in the TB section of this forums, about how new TB owners are trying to cope with the same bad port location on their super phone.
Not being able to charge in landscape mode while watching videos is a big issue for me. And no I don't want to get a case or charging dock to make the next Evo work just like the phone I have now.
Also, I want to see what will happen with Sprint regarding LTE?
My upgrade will now be in 2012 instead of 2011 cause I just got downgraded to Sprint premier Silver member.
I don't want to get another Wimax phone this year which would push my contract into 2013.
If somehow this At&t buy out of T-Mobile
will expedite Sprints plans to deploy LTE sooner? Which I think it will?
I'll be ready next year to welcome in an LTE Super phone?

I am waiting to see the performance of the EVO 3D in person compared side by side to my customed and rooted EVO. If there's not a significant difference, I will likely hold out to 2012 as I have my Xoom to keep me company until then.
Sprint taking away my ability to upgrade annually at new-customer pricing certainly influences this decision.

I agree. I think I'll need some hands on with both devices before deciding to switch or not. 3D sounds cool, but is it really practical? I like the idea of 3D, but I don't have any other 3D devices, so I wonder whether it is really useful?
I like the idea of the Nexus, with the developer support that tends to go along with it, but I have never been happy with the build quality of Samsung devices. My wife has an EPIC, and it feels cheap to me.

Im 95% certian i will be getting the EVO 3D when i get my upgrade. I never like getting phones when they first come out so i want to wait and read some reviews. My upgrade isnt until July anyways so there will be plenty out.

EVO 3D all the way. I am getting a Nintendo 3DS this Sunday. I am really liking the implementation of 3D. I bought my OG EVO on Launch Day last year and will do so again this year. This phone is AMAZING. If rumors are true, this phone can be OC'ed close to 2ghz, DIZAMNNNNN

I sort of became a fan of replacing my phone every 12 months, so is time for the change. I'm moving forward to the Nexus S 4g for now. The 3D is not really my side of the town
