Yes it is. I definitely wouldn't put the EVO 3D in the options. I think Sammy is the new HTC going forward.
Just look at the what happened after the iPhone 4s announcement. All the comparisons and bench-markings from all over the web were going up against the SGS2. It was like the EVO 3D didn't even exist and no one cared how the iPhone 4s stacked up against it. I think the SGS2 just overshadows that phone but a mile......
If you are looking to root your phone and are into custom Roms, I would probably stay away from the Photon though. Not sure how good there development scene is or will be.
Do you guys think the Epic Touch is worth the extra $50 over the Photon? (or EVO 3D, for that matter)?
FYI, it seems that the $99 price is for NEW Sprint customers. If you're using your upgrade option to buy this phone from Amazon, the price is $149.99, and if you're only wanting to get the phone without renewing contract, the price is $599.99.
I had to figure out how the $99 came to be, so I tried all 3 options.
