returned the Nexus S for the EVO
I returned my Nexus S this week and hot an EVO. I really wanted to like the phone. The seen was awesome and the game play was exactly what I was looking for. Gingerbread is impressive in a subtle way, but I had top many problems with it. I had issues with the WiFi and 4G radios. Voice recognition wasn't working at all. I shouldn't find the YouTube app until I came to this forum. The touch sensitive buttons at the bottom were too dark and not always responsive. Didn't like the headphones jack at the bottom. I though I could get used to it, but I didn't like it. I also didn't like how the Google voice integration worked on the phone. So I took the phone back and hot the EVO. First thing I noticed is that the EVO has a washed out screen compared to the Nexus. Samsung really knows how to make a great screen. And all the bloatware. But I like the widgets and the bigger screen. Plus the HDMI out is an awesome feature to have. I wish the Nexus did not have so many issues. I really wanted the vanilla Android experience. but there were just too many issues from the start. I was thinking about going with the Epic, but I didn't want a physical keyboard.

The EVO is a great phone, I had one for a year and it was built like a tank in that it didn't need any case or screen protection, enjoy!
For myself, the NS4G is a welcome change, as a gadget nut it is something different, the amoled screen is gorgeous, and I've been wanting to try a pure "google experience".

And folks, I just returned the EVO for the Nexus S again. I found out the voice recognition problem is due to the new update of the app. It wasn't working as it should on the EVO either. The radios signal is still poor, but I will just wait for an update to fix it. I couldn't get over the screen. The EVO screen is so washed out in comparison. I had to go back.

By the way, I found a fix to the voice search issue I was having. If you go to your computer into your Google dashboard, you can reset your voice search recordings and your voice recognition will work flawlessly. I just did it!If I were never here, you would never know.
