My my my Telephone
« on: June 09, 2010, 09:09:57 PM »

Been paying month-to-month on AT&T for quite some time now waiting until a smartphone came out that piqued my interest. Looks like now is a good time to get one with the new iPhone 4G, the Verizon Incredible and the Sprint Evo are all pretty awesome from what I can tell. I really want a front-facing camera phone for video-chatting options and I have 4G Sprint network access in my area, so I'm leaning a lot towards it at the moment, but the iPhone sure is shiny. Here are my current feelings, feel free to weigh in and try to influence me.

iPhone Pros:
higher screen resolution
slimmer design
gyroscope for gaming
good battery life

iPhone Cons:
video chat limited to wi-fi
not running Android, so intentionally-staggered updates
crappier camera
AT&T 3G network
data plan restrictions

Evo Pros:
Android OS, although proprietary build
Sprint 4G network
unlimited video chat
holy shit, a kickstand
on-paper better camera
bigger screen
ability through Sprint to upgrade phone in a year if I don't like it

Evo Cons:
why the fuck did they design the camera sticking out like that?
pretty abysmal battery life
bigger and heavier
lower resolution screen
Sprint? (I've always had AT&T, so it can't be much worse, right?)

On the Imagio, the only other phone with a kickstand by HTC, it was also an extra antennae that could pick up TV. And they had a nifty TV program to view it in. You could watch Comedy Central and stuff for free, I think.
Would be worth checking to see if that's the case again.

We've got a whole nother thread for this going over here, but since I don't feel like threadsplitting, let me just say that from my perspective switching from AT&T to Sprint is kind of akin to replacing Malak with Orlandu.

...I figure using the nerdiest analogy ever would get the point across succinctly.
