    Yes what happened 2 the kick stand? & why the down grade from the 8mega pixel camera to a 5mega pixel?
    Also why not the Netflix app? $8 a month Netflix as many movies & tv shows as u want VIA Blockbuster $5.99 per movie 2 watch as many times as u want for 30days!! Who wants to watch one movie 30 times!! SMH

      It's not a downgrade. crappy phone cameras shouldn't ever be higher than 5 megapixels anyways! A pinhole camera that phone's use don't offer the clarity and crisp quality of an actual glass lens. So 8 megapixels is unnecessary! Plus it's a 3D camera so think of the strain on the processor if it were running dual 8 megapixel 3D camera. I'd prefer the better performance!

        It is a downgrade. True, pinhole cameras can't achieve the same clarity or low-light performance as a true variable focus camera, but pixel count relates directly to image quality when shooting text up close in macro mode and when photographing distant objects. Image processing is an essential component of modern cell-cameras, and image processing benefits greatly from increased pixel depth.

        Most likely the inclusion of dual cameras necessitated scaling back the specs on each to maintain a (nearly) reasonable price point, as well as reducing CPU load.

      PLEASE don't encourage Sprint to bundle any more apps. If you want a certain app, you can download it from the Market. Bundled apps are NOT a selling point or a "feature", they are a marketing opportunity and a pain for users that don't want to deal with homebrewed Root kits.

      The Blockbuster app barely works and costs too much. It cannot be removed.

      The Nova app (game) is pay-to-play, runs over and over in the background and cannot be removed.

      The Google Maps app now includes Latitude (which should be a separate app), is larger and less stable than ever, and though Latitude tracking can be turned off, it still runs in the background, and increases the memory requirement and battery impact of the app. It cannot be removed.

      The Qik app is virtually useless, except from one 4G/WiFi connected Android phone to another. (Yahoo offers free video chat that works on Android to Android, Android to Windows, Android to Mac, etc, even over 3G.) Qik cannot be removed.

      Bottom line: Apps should be optional. A smartphones is an intensely personal device that is used in different ways by different people. All apps should be removable.

    FYI….I shattered my EVO screen last month and it cost $37 to get it replaced in my local Sprint office. Not bad.

    Patty: "why the down grade from the 8mega pixel camera to a 5mega pixel? "

    why? now you have 2 cameras = 10 megapixels! :)

    It's doesn't seem to be a downgrade. If you're lucky a camera with 5 MP can deliver far better graphics than a 8MP one but if that's the case in this case… I think so…

    No kickstand!????

  • bob

    Netflix app or I am goin to get a Iphone!

    • Martyn

      I have an iphone… if your stupid enough to think that you and you alone are going to make them add an app…. then you are very mistaken! also… the iphone is shite!

  • Marty

    I got the scoop! June 3, 2011…and Sprint is NOT taking pre-orders. However if you are a Sprint Primer Customer…you will be able to pre-order "online". Primer customers will be getting an email from Sprint in May 2011.

      Are you sure its June 3rd? If so I can do my 30 exchange from the nexus s.

    How much is the phone

    1) PLEASE don't encourage Sprint to bundle any more apps. If you want a certain app, you can download it from the Market. Bundled apps are NOT a selling point or a "feature", they are a marketing opportunity and a pain for users that don't want to deal with homebrewed Root kits.

    2) Higher pixel count aids image processing, which is essential for pulling quality photographs out of "crappy" pinhole cameras. Modern 8mp Evo cameras work much better for up close Macro images like text, and are essential for maintaining focus on distant objects.

    3) I love my kickstand. It saves my hands when I'm watching movies. I'm using it right now, while typing this post. (I wish for a top tier phone with a slideout keyboard.) I predict that we will see Evo 3D cases with their own kickstand.
