Question Hero vs EVO advice pls

OK. I am growing tired of the sluggishness of the Hero. I have flashed to 2.1.2 ROM and really love it, but I think the Hero is a bit under powered.
I am itching for the EVO, but I am REALLY hung up over the $120/year fee just for the ability to own one. But... I am wanting MORE SPEED!
Will Froyo help on the Hero or should I quit my whining over this nonsense fee and get the EVO? (It became even harder to resist the EVO today after I saw the new iPone 4 specs and features).
So, would you go EVO even with the bottomless fee?
I have been fighting this fee tooth and nail, but now I am weakening for something nicer...

Re: Hero vs EVO advice pls

I've been reading a few different forums and there are reports that the EVO is having the same keyboard lag that the Hero does even with a 1Ghz processor. I don't know why they can't make a phone that doesn't lag.

I say you have to upgrade. $120 a year is easily worth having a phone you love. So I'd wait till the 24th and play with that new iPhone, then play with an Evo, and see where you wanna go, but you gotta ditch the hero with its small screen, slow processor, horrible resolution.


edit: I have NO lag on my HD2, there is ZERO lag on the nexus one, and I doubt the Evo does either when configured correctly.

I assure you there will be zero kb lag on the iPhone.

Re: Hero vs EVO advice pls

There are some notable differences between the two phones. Most notable speed in how things just open up and work (even with the little wrinkles that are being ironed out).

Typing is different because now you have a much bigger screen to type on which = better typing experience.

You'll also get the "live" wall papers if it's something you're into.

My overall experience thus far is evo is just better in every way. I've updated my hero to the same os and it's missing a few features, but it's not a deal breaker as it gains many more.

Most if not all of my programs works on both so that wasn't a problem. But if you're only looking at a buck and a half, do it, you won't regret it.

What made me jump was the flash! Believe it or not, that's EXTREMELY useful (for me). A second pleasant surprising feature is the 2nd front mounted camera!

I'd give it a few months. The EVO has a few issues that are coming up. And if you check out a few EVO forums around the net, there are reports of lag. Battery life, build issues, fps issues, etc... I'd give it awhile before you upgrade.

Re: Hero vs EVO advice pls

The only thing I don't like is the screen input lag, but this is presumably something in the firmware that HTC put there. I'm sure it'll be either hacked or fixed.

However, even with this issue, it's a MUCH faster device than my gf's Hero (all around). Well worth the upgrade, IMO.
