I like the evo alot so far compared to the pre. Mostly due to apps and size of screen, its huge compared to the pre. The one thing i liked about the pre was the swipes to remove apps or delete emails. Also, the ability to have multiple apps open via cards. maybe the evo does this but i am not sure how yet. need to talk with an experience android users at work.

Pure bliss, seventh heaven. I had my Pre when it first came out.. You know when there wasn't a video recorder etc... I rooted and homebrewed and created my own apps. It was a great phone but lacking in basic areas.. No voice commands, no mutli pages already open and default, not to mention the plethora of apps in the market
I think with Pre 'we' worked to make it a good phone with Evo it's a GREAT phone.. I am so happy I made the switch...

I see just much I've suffered for the past year.
Sure, I miss gestures and cards and think it's lame how we need a Task Killer app - the clerk actually told me to get one first - and notifications are a little weird, but as I whip from one app to the next in a fraction of the time it would take to open one on the Pre, it's the best $200 I've spent on a phone in a year.
I'm sure there are plenty of Pre users who really want to support webOS and HPalm, but the joy of a slickly running phone has to trump loyalty and stubbornness. I'm sure they'll say they're happy with the Pre. I say they haven't tried the EVO yet. It's like a guy who says he's satisfied with his wife because he hasn't slept with Angelina Jolie yet."The Nexus 4 is such a big black slab of power that if you dropped it down in the middle of a pack of monkeys, they'd start using weapons." - Dirk Belligerent.

It's ... different. For one, there's a size difference. Not only is this bigger, but it's heavier. Not "Oh My GOD" heavy, but you notice the difference. And I keep doing the gestures, so I'll have to deprogram myself from that. Also, OS wise the Pre was pretty simple. Not iPhone simple, but it was pretty easy to pick up and use, at least to me. This took me a few minutes of playing around with it, going into the different menus, the screen presses, etc. But now ... I'm in LOVE. It's so much more device than the Pre, both literally and figuratively. The only thing I miss, and I figured I would initially, is the keyboard. I like the way HTC corrects my spelling, but I'm paynig more attention now because sometimes I mispell intentionally, like if I'm using slang in a text message. It's easy enough to correct, but it's something to be aware of. I like the arrow buttons being there; makes navigating around in a message easier.

I'm not entirely used to using it yet but the EVO initially feels like a much more powerful device than my Pre. I think webos was a bit more intuitive out of the box but I can already see the power and versatility of Android it's just taking me longer to learn how to really get the most from it.
There are a few things I do miss about the pre, I miss some of the gestures and I really miss my touchstone charger. Otherwise I couldn't be happier.

Im missing Cards and Swipe gestures. Other than that I'm ok.
This thing is HUGE compared to the Pre. The apps and the speed of this thing are killer though !

Just like alot of people, I miss the cards and gesture area. I'm still getting used to the Droid OS, but so far I'm definitely liking the Evo (especially not having to worry about the TMC errors). Also, I must say that for a soft-keyboard, the Evo's is fantastic.
As a sidenote, I just joined the forums, but what are some threads I should look at and must have apps?

HA HA HA HA ... This phone is pure sexiness ... as we all are saying ... We loved the WebOS ... but hated the hardware ... Our Ideal phone would be the EVO form factor with the WebOS and App Market behind it ... Needless to say I too find myself swiping things that just wont move ... Its funny as hell to be ... It will get some used to but the EVO is a godsend for us PRE-Vious owners ... We will NEVER look back .

My EVO is being shipped to me on Monday, I did go to the Sprint store to play with the demo units, and like most people said its fast, the screen is bright and clear. I too found myself trying swipe up and swipe left, however just after 10 minutes I knew I made the right decision.
One thing i didn't try and I hope people can comment on, While there are some User interface things i will miss from my Pre, the thing that bugged me the most was how long it took to boot up, it took longer than my windows PC's, How fast does the EVO boot up?
