    I went from the Centro (if that counts lol), HTC Diamond running Android, back to Centro, Optimus S then Evo Shift. Gotta say the shift is my favorite so far.

    I've been using blackberry's for years, my last one being a tour 9630. Big difference but so far I'm really enjoying the shift.

    Samsung Epic. I went through 4 of them and there isn't enough space here for me to list all of the problems I had even with the last one. Sprint let me out of my contract early, and I got the shift yesterday as a free upgrade. So far I love it. It is better constructed than the Epic and more stable without all the hardware and software glitches. The only down side is it is a little slower and the screen is smaller but I can live with that for a phone that WORKS as advertised.

    First time poster, long time lurker. I'm coming from the original Sprint Palm Pre. Absolutely loved WebOS. Still like it better than Android. But, Spring never updated the phone, WebOS was not going to be upgraded from 1.45 to 2.0 on Sprint (apparently the original phone hardware specs could not handle it), there was no indication the Pre3 would even be carried by Sprint (and even so it would be outgunned before it even hit the shelves), and my phone has been acting up in a way that repairing wasn't an option. For me, it came down to a business decision: do I spend $75 for a lightly used phone that won't be supported or upgraded, or do I spend $100 on a brand new phone that will/

    I ended up with the Evo Shift. For me, having a physical keyboard was more important than a bigger screen, faster processor and 3D. And since there are only 2 phone on Sprint that fit the bill, the choice was easy. I've always admired HTC phones, and never trusted Samsung phones. So the Shift was the only choice I had, really.

    I love the physical build of the phone. I love the plethora of apps that I can use. I love knowing the phone will be updated at least until I'm up for an upgrade in a year (being a platinum Sprint premier customer helps). I hate leaving WebOS, and I hate feeling like WebOS would kick so much *** on this hardware. But time and technology waits for no man, so I had to make a move...

    Coming from a Crapsung Transform. I had it rooted OC and every last little thing possible to get it to be useable. I Open my shift turn it on and almost fainted at how fast smooth and awesome right out the box. I really don't know what to do with myself not having to do a million things to this just to make it run well.

    This is my story as well. The 8330 is my first smartphone and I like it so much that I bought another one, used, when I threw my first phone out of a moving car (entirely by accident, mind you).

    I've never got the hang of typing on a touchscreen phone and love the BB keyboard, so I want a physical keyboard. I've been doing a lot of research and reading reviews the past few days and none of the extra/better features of the other EVOs or other similar phones I can get from Sprint are very important. Got to handle a few Shifts in a store today and totally dig it! Will be making my upgrade very soon now.

    Oh, and I'm a total Google fanboy and Android makes me feel funny in the pants.

    Had to leave Palm Pre-. Honestly, not that too excited about. The Evo Shift is nice and all, but I really do miss webOS.

    I came from the Pre also. I found myself trying to flick the apps away on the shift then remembering it doesn't work that way. There is a learning curve, but not that bad. The number of apps for android will blow you away and i think the shift blows the Pre away as a phone. Give it a chance, I think you'll like it.

    LG Optimus S to HTC Evo Shift 4G ... I'm a big guy with big hands and the physical keyboard works better for me without turning my phone option into a baby tablet. So now my son is the proud owner of the LG

    My Evo met an untimely death last week (dropped it, screen shattered) so I figured I'd try something different. Bought it from a guy on CL yesterday, rooted it last night. Now running CM Nightly#179. So far, so good.

    Samsung Strive.

    I really hate the keyboard. It's too damn small! I need a newer phone finally. The Evo Shift is right for me. I really want to try qwerty keyboard.
