    Question Is this phone worth getting???

    Okay pretty much short and sweet, I'm leaving Sprint (I love them by the way) just cutting down my bills a month. I want to go to Virgin Mobile and wanted the best phone I can get. I see the HTC EVO they have with a dual core. I just want some opinions because I know I will get real honest ones here. How is the phone? Is there something better on VM or is this worth it?

    Thank you all in advance for the help!

    Great phone and development is improving everyday

    It's somewhat outdated and battery life is not very good, but I'm glad I have one

    I imagine the s2 is a good phone but I've never played with one (overpriced imo though)

    If the EVO is still 150, I suggest buying one

    Vm on the otherhand, well its prepaid so I guess you can't ask for much more

    Of course, I know I won't get top of the line phones because it's pre-paid. Just wanted to know the best of the best on Virgin Mobile before making my purchase. I appreciate your comment.

    I forgot about the reverb, it looks nice.
    But last I saw, there was not much in development....so if you're into rooting n such, definitely get the EVO

    Sprint EVO 3d roms work with this phone (after changing yor hboot version, which is easily done) so there are a lot of choices from stock sense, aokp, aosp, cm, sense 4+, jb.....

    For me its the best phone I have ever owned. I work at home so I can stay on charger. But I can surf 3-4 hours no problem. When I see trouble is if I am in a weak signal area battery goes much faster. 4G is a little weak where I live, but when I am in 4G area its as good as wifi. I feel for the money can't be beat.

    I upgraded to the Evo V (3D) back in December from my old tried and true LG Optimus V, it's a terrific phone. I've had exactly zero problems with performance or any apps. Only problem I did have is in early January 1/5th of the touchscreen stopped working after a few days of it being over-sensitive. Fortunately, after only a brief 5 minute phone call, Virgin overnighted my a warranty replacement, which interestingly was the Sprint branded Evo 3D. The replacement and been perfect.

    If there's any complaint, my good old optimus had a louder maximum ringtone volume. Other than that, the device has been perfect... no lag, no performance issues... a force close maybe twice a month tops (versus twice a day or more on the old OV).

    And for $150 now, it's a steal.

    Other than the need to buy a high capacity battery to replace the stock battery I've had no complaints. The phone is fabulous, responsive and at $150, can't be beat.
