What phone to get? (sprint)

I am eligible for an upgrade and currently have the htc tp2. I am looking at either the Evo or Epic but don't know which one to get.

The Evo has a big screen and better camera. The Epic has a clearer screen and a hardware keyboard along with the newer processor. I am leaning towards the Evo just for the camera picture quality. The only thing about those 2 phones is there isn't 4g service where I am at.

Or should I wait for the HTC 7 Pro?

Well the epic has a better camera, mega pixles don't mean anything, its all about the sensor.

I chose the Evo because working for Sprint Samsung has a bad history with making phones in terms of antennas.

The epic is faster hands down, but I like the feel of the Evo more.

Yes the picture quality on the Epic is much better then the Evo..

But anyways, to better answer your question...can you tell us what you mainly use your phone for? and what do you expect/hope from a phone?

I'll tell you one thing the web browsing experience on Android is worlds above then the one on the Winmo devices. (or at least the ones I had)

If your choice is between the 3 being EVO, Epic, TP7 Pro and those 3 are your main concerns then here is how it is:

1) EVO - Boils down to how you feel about the size of the screen.. some find it too big..some find it just right..the screen can be a bit washed out. It is probably easiest to type on screen due to the size if you feel its not too big.

2) Epic - Boils down to how you feel about the PenTile portion..some people absolutely hate the keyboards added to phone but those that play games/type long messages/emails it comes in handy. It also comes built in swype(but you can load Swype on any phone realistically)..it is very light and not bulky though considering what it has...in terms of hardware specs its the best on the market FYI

3) TP7 pro - As you know your not in winmo country any more..it takes an Apple locked down approach...the keyboard is pretty much same as the TP2 one by the looks of it...By the time it coems out though there probably would be better phones in the market...to note though WP7 is fairly new so it may not have as many choices for text messaging clients, browsers, and email clients if any choices at all. (or at least at the moment)

To note if you haven't noticed I use an Epic so I may be a "bit" more biased towards it..my phone before was also a TP2...

do you want exchange??? android only barely has that covered i believe..

when you browse, do you use flash sites? stream video?? evo and epic both being android have all the same browsers available to them...

obviously the Pro7 will be a hot ticket it seems like, are you wanting to feel left out on that one?? im not a wp7 fan just yet, but maybe you are..

also the EVO SHift 4G(make what you want of it), HTC KNIGHT are rumored sooner than later... check our news, theres a mysterious HTC device(no carrier, no real info and may be a Tab in the end)...

HP is releasing Palm Pre 2, thatll probably come Sprint side as they had alot of success with the original PRE...

I know it can be hard if you just have one line to sit on upgrades(i have 3 lines upgrade ready)... but right now seems like the perfect time to just "sit and wait it out a bit"..

Dont buy into the HYPE the EVO will not be outdated in a few months, TP2 stills going strong even with all the android going on.. People love the EVO and it will get support for probably another year... and aside from rooting, anything android can go on an EVO, so you wont miss out on anything by waiting.. all the apps and roms will still be there to use should you get one someday...

IDK, thats my thought

Re: What phone to get? (sprint)

Yeah, I've been sitting and waiting since September since my upgrade was available. My tp2 is doing ok but I might have to go back to a stock rom or a 6.1 rom since I can't seem to stay stable after like 2 weeks of usage, especially because of the stupid sense 2.5x htc messaging bogging stuff down.

not sure what the htc knight phone is. the evo shift is just a smaller version of the evo right? as for a palm, it's been years since i've messed with anything palm so I would rather not go back that route.
