    dont really care about your opinion i was just making some general statements
    I was demonstrating that your general statements just aren't true. A lot of people buy the iPhone knowing full well it isn't the best phone on the market.

    No sir. The problem is that it is NOT all about the numbers. The Iphone is 1 phone/device that gets all of one big company's resources. Apple kind of reminds me of Honda and Toyota. While they are both great companies with great histories (until recently for Toyota), most people but both now based a lot on name alone and that really all the iPhone has going for it.

    2-3 years ago the iphone was far superior to ANYTHING else on the market technology wise. No question. Now it is not and all most apple fanboys can say is "look who sells more."

    Remember, you or I don't get the money that comes from selling hundres of thousands or millions of these devices. I can only judge on two fronts; the device I have in my hand and what it cost me to use that device to it's fullest potential.

    In that respect, for the individual, the iphone has been equaled or passed. But it is always easier to follow the pack than not to. It's your choice and all I can say is congrats on your new iPhone.

    Well duh it doesn't have 4G. No other carrier in the US has an operational 4G network. What would have been the point of including very expensive 4G components in a phone on a network that doesn't support it?

    As for your other criticisms, I just say meh. The Evo might have a higher MP rear camera, but it'll take worse pictures. (even the Nexus One takes better pictures) Jobs made a big deal about this, and its a point that apparently went over your head. MicroSD might be a valid point, but unlike the Evo, the i4 includes 16gb of memory onboard.

    I think its funny that you think the Evo will somehow manage to beat the iPhone. As anyone that's been paying attention should know, specs don't really matter. (and that's ignoring the fact that the iPhone really isn't behind the spec-wise) Sales are all that matters and if you think the Evo will 'win' against the iPhone you're going to have a very rude awakening.

    Let's just be honest...the iPhone 4 is sexier, period. To me, though, it's all about what's under the hood, and in the spec war the Inc still beats iPhone across the board. Let all the Fanboys and hipsters run around with their iPhones, I'm happy with my Inc.

    Who's following the pack? I choose the iPhone because it works best for me. I can't say the same of Android.

    As long as it's on AT&T nope. Now, if it comes to Big Red... I would switch in a heartbeat. I REALLY like all that my Droid can do, but as a former AT&T sales rep I had A LOT of experience with the iPhone and it's just a second nature to me. Besides, with my new job if the iPhone comes to VZ I'll make A LOT of money.

    Look stop trying to bash the Evo cause you see the new IPhone its like your trying the find everything under the sun wrong with the Evo just so you can make yourself feel better about wanting to get the new cryphone if you want to get it GET IT !!!!!! We really don't want to hear it I find it funny Steve couldn't even get the phone to work on the at&t network and he said video chat is only over WiFi but you fanboys eat it up like he's telling you you can fly to the moon but if it makes you happy then go right ahead just stay off this site with it go to the cryPhone blog

    Ah, I hate when campaigns go negative, I think the Evo can stand on it's own two feet, or 4.3" screen or whatever without having to bash anything else. Let people get excited, consumers are the real winners.

    The EVO was only $200 with a new contract, without the iphone this thing would of been like $500 w/a 2 year deal!

    Besides Google was watching yesterday, so was HTC and Sprint and everyone else, they'll only try to out do what Apple did and then our "rEVOs" or EVO 2 or whatever the heck it will be will be even better.

    Ah, I love capitalism in the morning.

    The only thing the iPhone 4 has over Evo is great resolution. Reconsider and stick with Sprint because AT&T sucks.

    There's really nothing new with this phone. In all honesty, I think the true innovations come from htc and google.

    This is subjective. If you love iStuff integration (your iPhone and iMac and iPad and Macbook and iPod and iLemur and iCar and iSpoon...) all working together, and you're okay with AT&T, iPhone is probably right for you. If you like Verizon and a more robust (open) platform with currently flash-lite and soon full flash, you'll want the Incredible. If front facing camera for video chat is your thing, you may want the Evo or the iPhone4.

    iPhone4 seems to offer better screen resolution, and that's really the only big benefit I see, but... not sure that matters on such a small screen.

    I voted the first option, since I will be buying it. Not ditching my Nexus One for it though.

    They say: "Remember, you'll be stuck with your choice for two years, so make it count!".

    BZZZZTT Sorry but thanks for playing! Sprint offers an upgrade every year so that is another plus to getting the Evo! ii
