A few questions

Alright im a beloved TP2 user , but the time has come . Cant decide on the epic or on the evo shift 4g .

Would love if you guys post both pro's and cons about the epic . what do you like about it , what could be its improvements and also any personal opinions .

My questions are:
1 Can i change the PRL on the epic manually like throught EPST as i did on the TP2 ?
2 Can the epic run the same android version that the Evo shift is running ? or any other android version for that matter ?
3 is adobe flash supported for the broswer ? and can i upgrade it as new adobe flash updates are made ?

Thanks in advance guys !

Well I came from a TP2..while the kb is a bit different once I got used to it its been much better..there are a few issues but most have been fixed with custom roms...The screen is awesome, the GPU is the best (on par with dual core phones), and the CPU is the fastest for single core..I also like the built in divx, xvid and mkv support for watching movies.

The thing you prob should understand is the screen..the screen works like this:

1x=red
2x=green
3x=blue
6x=white
0x=black

where x is energy consumption....so whites drain a lot of energy while blacks drain 0 energy..

[HOW TO] Update your PRL manually (EPIC 4G)

Evo shift is running 2.2 by default, we are running 2.2.1..both should get 2.3 update soon..we got a 2.3 leak right now..not sure about the shift..

yes..as long as that flash player is compatible with the Android version..at the moment we have the latest flash 10 support yes.

Re: A few questions

@gTen... The epic is capable of reproducing white?
It looks liks blue to me.
p.

OP... The best way to make up your mind is to check them both out side by side... Most Sprint stores have them available... Don't let the reps talk you into either or. And don't take fanboi's opinions as YOUR truth. You are doing the right thing by becoming informed... But remember to judge for yourself and make your decision based on what YOU think will work best fot YOU. I can't tell you which phone is best for YOU. And just because something is AWESOME on paper it doesn't mean that YOU are going to like it better than something comparable. In most people's lives jiggawats and nutrinos and nanotubes don't make that much of a difference. So go by feel and choice. You can't go wrong with either unless you pick the one you like least based on what I or someone else told you.

That's the best advice I can give you.

p.

IT depends on the batch you got..some people got tinted blue, some people got tinted yellow...others got perfectly balanced (mine was balanced)...its no big deal..and if it is there is voodoo color to balance it out...
