    Now that the Motorola Photon 4G has been released, have any of you jumped from the EVO 3D to the Photon? Why or why not?

    Whos returning their HTC Evo 3D for the new Sprint Motorola Photon 4G?

    Just wondering is anyone was?

    I for one will continue to use the Evo 3D! (First Android device for me ever and I like scene 3.0!)

    If yes why?

    If no why?

    NO flames please!

    No cuz I'm past the 30 days plus I don't think the photon is any different from the evo. Also photon may not be able to be rooted cuz its motorola.

    Help no, the photon looks like someone is trying a little too hard to make it look futuristic and the specs are not better so why side-grade I only upgrade.

    Ask me that question a few weeks ago, I would have told you HELL YA! The EVO 3D was so frustrating and would lock up, random start, not syncing with my bluetooth, etc. I did many factory hard resets and it didn't solve anything. Then I figured out that it was the settings from Google that kept syncing everytime I would hard reset. It was my settings carrying over. Once I stopped syncing with Google and started everything fresh, the 3D has been flawless. (Knock on wood) So at this time...no I would not return my 3D for the Photon.

    I do wish the Evo 3D had a kickstand but Sense 3.0 (vs Motoblur), the developer community for HTC devices in general, and the uncertainty surrounding whether or not root will ever be available for the Photon is more than enough to convince me to stay with the 3D. While HTC phones are not without their flaws, I've found I tend to be happier with them in the long run vs phones from Motorola and Samsung.

    Definitely not returning. I have not had any issues with the 3D. N nothing against Moto, but I prefer HtC. The photon looks pretty sweet, but nothing there to make me wanna give up my EVO...

    I am not using my upgrade, but I am getting a Photon for free from Motorola.

    How did you pull that off!!?

    I got my Evo 3D free from Sprint! Called and was not happy with lack of choice of a new WebOS device. So they ordered me an Evo and credited my account the $199.99 to keep me happy.

    So far I am more than happy with my device! I love it!

    No offense to Moto, but I'm sticking with the Evo 3D. The only reason I would consider switching is for the world support, but I don't travel nearly enough to make it worth it.

    I dunno! It took me 3 hours of phone time to get it free! :P

    I even got it over night. Was gonna take my 3 lines of service back to Verizon...They didn't want me to leave! (Guessing they don't wanna lose anymore people!)

    Call and see what you can do. Sometimes it works other times it doesn't.

    I played with the Photon today. I must admit...it is a really nice device. Its smooth, fast and responsive. But I dont like Blur in the least. It may grow on me to be honest but I dont foresee it taking the place my Evo 3D has in my heart.

    Nope, completely satisfied with my EVO 3D. It handles whatever I throw at it quickly, smoothly and with no hiccups. The specs are basically equal but the photon isn't aesthetically pleasing to my eye so if I was to leave the 3D I guess the galaxy s II would be my next device. That being said, I'm not going anywhere for at least the next year. Like someone above me said, each new phone for me needs to be a definite upgrade over the last one. I wouldn't go from one 1.2ghz dual core phone to another.

    I love my 3VO . The Photon is a side grade at best, possibly a slight downgrade compared to the EVO-3D.
    If I would switch from the 3VO, would be for the Galaxy S2 possibly.

    Nexus-4.0 Prime is 99% my next phone.
