    My E4GT isn't 6 mos. old yet and of all the phones I've had, this one became my new favorite. I would've considered a switch if Sprint had stuck to more of the One X design rather than change it as much as they did.

    Yes, I had the original Evo, and IMHO, this phone took a massive leap away from the One X to become the all new Evo.

    I'm not struck by brand loyalty but right now, I'd rather wait and see what Samsung does next. So looking forward to a Note from Samsung on the Now Network!

    Anyone upgrading their device from the Epic Touch to the EVO LTE? Much better specs as far as screen quality, camera and processor. Also, an upgrade will more than likely be better since HTC makes far better quality devices than Samsung will ever make. The build on the EVO LTE is first class also, compared to our plasticky Touches?? What are you all going to do?
    Yep, I'm upgrading to the Evo LTE. But I'm upgrading my plastic OG Evo to the Plastic Evo LTE. I'm keeping my "plasticky" e4Gt. The e4Gt is a great "plasticky" device.

    You put it in a protective case, it feels like any other plastic phone in a protective case....

    When it comes to screen resolution, I beg to differ, you can tell the difference. It was painfully obvious that my E4GT has a lower resolution than my Evo 3d did, but it made up for it for nicer colors and blacker blacks. The example you give doesn't make that much sense, the pixel density on a 4.5" screen is much higher than on a full size TV, you can't compare the two. So yes, screen resolution does make a difference. Now, if we were arguing about a phone having 720p resolution vs 1080p resolution, then yes, I'd agree with you because with a screen that small, the difference between the two of them would be impossible to tell for the human eye simply because already at 720p you can't make out individual pixels, let alone at 1080p. But going from 480 x 800 to 720 x 1280 is a huge difference!
    I guess I'm being stubborn...so we'll see when it comes out. But I guarantee that 99% percent of people looking at the screen will not be able to tell the difference. Especially when playing a full HD video or looking at very high resolution photos. I will make the educated assumption that the only people who will "tell the difference" will be guys who have the need to one-up the next guy.

    Also, the Nexus at Vz is 720 x 1280 and I couldn't see much of a difference...just saying.

    Well I am the guy that, when blu ray first came out, complained about still seeing pixels when I saw my first blu ray movie on a hd tv. Some people just don't see it, but I am a stickler for details.

    I am surprise no one concerned that by getting the EVO LTE, you will basically give up WiMax for the next few months until Sprint turn on LTE in your areas.
    Sprint doesent even offer wiimax in my area so thats really not a consideration but lets be honest about the LTE build out. Unless you live in a major city its not going to be months, its going to be years. By the time Sprint has a widespread LTE network most of us would be eligible to upgrade from the EVO LTE.

    Agreed, I don't even have 4G where I live...and Sprint is using an established 4G carrier (Clear). Can you imagine how long it will take for them to build their own LTE network?

    Well at this point, Clear is a struggling carrier that is only surviving because Sprint needs them. They have not announced a new WiMax city in over a year. Once Sprint is done with Clear, they will be a lost company. I have abused WiMax so much since it was introduced to Sprint. Luckily, I live in the Philadelphia area, and Philadelphia's 4g (WiMax) coverage is pretty much a blanket (with a few holes).

    LTE will not be coming to Philadelphia right away. I beleive LTE is lit for the Houton, Dallas, and San Antonio and some other cities around there. Because of this, I will not get an LTE device until it is available in Philadelphia or NE which I assume would be around the time the iPhone 5 will be on sale (Late/Winter 2012).

    First, I have a SERIOUS gadget addiction. I do love my Epic, but that Evo with the high-res, super LCD screen ... I had a serious itch when it was announced. I MAY do it, but only because of my "issue" =) ...

    There is more to the higher resolution screen than just "it looks better". More of a webpage can fit on the screen for instance.

    I wouldn't purchase the EVO LTE for nothing. I gave up my EVO 3D shortly after getting it because I hated the side power port.

    If it would have had a bottom port... It would be a toss up between this and GS3 if/when it comes.
