Ok, so I know this page is full of all kinds of techie info and I've read the post about the HTC Incredible...Would that be comparable to the HTC Evo (Sprint)? I have a BB Curve right now..and have been dying for the Tour since it came out (I get the "upgrade" on July 1st woot!). I start NS in August and want to know which one would be better to run the apps on? I know the Evo is the 1st 4g phone to Sprint..but my understanding is 4g won't be in my market yet for a bit, so I don't know if thats a factor I should consider? The Evo's screen is much bigger than that of the BBs but I am not a huge fan of touch screens (had a Samsung Instinct and the screen became "insensitive" in some places so I could no longer dial numbers, use certain letters in text, etc). I'm sure technology has advanced farther than my Instinct days but its all so confusing! HELP! haha.
I just got the Evo (day after it came out!) and I LOVE it! I'm starting NS in the fall and had read how helpful all of the apps can be. I really did my research, even considered different carriers to get the best platform, and decided to stay with Sprint (great service and best prices) and get the Evo. I had a Treo a few years ago and hated it. It just wasn't user friendly to me, so needless to say I did a ton of research before making my decision to spend $200 on a phone. And just thought I throw this out, many users of other platforms (iphone, BB, palm) have switched or are planning to switch to the Evo and/or Android...just drop by the Android Central forums and see for yourself.
The touchscreen is very sensitive, I keep forgetting to lock the phone before I pick it up and my hand will brush the screen and open something. That's just me getting used to it though. I had no issues whatsoever getting my contacts set up (it syncs OTA with Google), and have found it very easy to understand and use the apps that I already have. My only complaint is that the camera lens is not recessed, and I worry that it'll get scratched so I've left the film on it for now. This will be a moot point once I get a cover on it.
I can honestly say that this is by far the best phone that I have ever owned. Other than my Treo, I've always been one to buy whatever phone was on special at the time because I just couldn't justify spending so much on a phone and all the bells and whistles. With this one I have absolutely no regrets, even if I weren't going into NS, this phone would still get a heck of a lot of use! There are already apps for just about everything you can think of, and more are coming out everyday...and most are free or have a free version.
Almost forgot, I let my mother-in-law (an RN) play with it, and she's decided to get one for herself, as well as one for my husband for his birthday. I really can't say enough good about this phone!
Edited to add: Forgot to mention, I have the 4G turned off right now to conserve the battery. 4G is spotty in my area and it uses so much power searching for the signal that I just turned it off. However, even without the 4G, my phone is amazingly fast.
