    I've had an Iphone for 3 years now, never used an android device. Got tired of apple taking 6 months to catch up to current demands and such and thought why not go with the EVO. My friend has the 4G, so I kinda know what I'm getting but I'm very excited to become apart of the android community. So any tips or helpful information would be appreciated as I know nothing! lol I'll be doing some searching so really just wanted to stop by and say hey.

    I preordered 3D myself and will be upgrading from crappy Blackberry.

    Because I'm not a fanboy of either platform. I can tell you that you will be looking at a significant downgrade on camera (a big minus for me).

    -iPhone camera is VERY hard to beat. It's quality is a top leader in industry.
    +Android customization beats Apple iron grip
    +4.3" screen which is better than Apple higher resolution actually

    You're totally exaggerating the camera of the iphone 4.. It was better than the evo, but not THAT great. I already posted a video showing the evo 3d quality and it looks to be as good as the iphone 4's.

    I have the EVO 4G and everyone is always amazed at the sharpness.and colors on my camera, including those using an iPhone. I think you will be very pleased. I'm looking forward to the new 3D.

    Haha I'm in the same boat as you man. I have had an iPhone since the release day of the 3g and now im moving to the evo3d because apple hasn't done anything new or exciting to their UI and plus their authoritarianism approach to OUR electronics that we buy from them. I think we will be very satisfied with android I have played with my buddies evo a lot and sense is just awesome you will like it.

    i think you will probably be pleased with the switch from iphone... i personally can't stand iphones os. also, look into rooting... see if it's something you might be into. i will probably root my evo 3D but i won't be flashing any roms, i really like sense 3.0, but i must get rid of bloat ware. horrible horrible bloat ware.

    I went from an EVO to an iPhone 4 and I didn't last more than a couple of weeks. There is too much that Android offers that IOS couldn't match. Anyone will be pleasantly surprised coming from an iPhone to Android. Especially if you are getting the EVO 3D.

    I went from the Evo 4g to the iPhone 4 and could not have been happier with my choice. Yes, Android can do more but what the iPhone does it does better than any other smartphone on the market. That said, I pre-ordered an Evo 3d in the hopes it would fix all the issues of the Evo 4g (battery life, sluggish response, questionable build quality). The reviews seem to indicate the evo 3d really isn't much better so I've cancelled my pre order.

    My advice is to not port your number and keep your iPhone while you try out the Evo 3d to see if you like it.

    For what it's worth, I'm getting a Droid Charge instead.

    Maybe he didn't feel it was proper unless he were being overcharged. $300 on contract? More like the Droid Overcharge. Insanity! :P

    You are going to pay $100 more to get the Droid Charge over the EVO 3D? I don't understand why you would do that?

    I laughed when I read the iphone(aka idiotphone) lover's post. The iphone 4 can't even compare to the evo 4g, not mentioning evo 3d.

    Yeah and don't forget that Verizon likes to nickle and dime you to death, so there is a good chance your monthly fees will be higher as well!

    Droid charge, interesting choice. Nice screen, single core, 4G if available in your area. It's a Samsung phone, so it will be light, but honestly, comparing the feel and built quality of the last gen phones, meaning a Evo 4g compared to the Epic, or any other Galaxy S phone, I will have to say that HTC comes out on top.

    Just wondering, why the Droid Charge?

    I honestly don't think the iPhone 4 is leaps and bounds better than the 3d and I don't expect to miss much from my iPhone besides the app store which I like. That being said I really dont know about the android market. My buddy has an evo 4g and I love sense on it and just about everthing htc does is good quality.

    Anyone that owns a smartphone, knows that battery life isn't a real strong point, including the iPhone. "sluggish response"? Are you sure you were using the EVO 4g? It's anything but sluggish. Questionable build quality? Strange to say the least, most sites and smartphone users would say just the opposite when it comes to HTC. That's usually a comment you see associated with Samsung phones. But everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    Good luck with your Charge though, seems like a decent phone.

    With the same usage patterns, my iPhone would be around 70% when I got home from work whereas my Evo couldn't even make it to lunch before it would drop below 70%, 4g disabled. Sense was very slow and web browsing excruciating with the freezes and hiccups. But iOS blows in so many ways. Lots of tradeoffs either way you go, IMHO.

    Fair question. I travel a lot and need reliable tethering. LTE seems more widespread than WiMax and after terrible experiences with CLEAR usb modem on my laptop I'm ready to try Verizon. The Charge forums are full of former HTC ThunderBolt users so I naturally move in that direction.

    I have zero brand loyalty and I think people who do are screwing themselves.

    FWIW, the Charge is $179 at Costco, no activation fee, 90 day return policy although only 14 days to cancel the Verizon contract. I know VZW fees are higher but I'm willing to pay a premium. If Verizon sucks or the phone sucks, I'm going to get a Nexus S 4G on Sprint.
