"iPhone 4 sucks as a phone. Evo is a great phone…" "I don’t care."

When Steve Jobs says “it’s just a phone” and AT&T still sucks (“the best engineering out of Cupertino won’t change that”), what is a poor consumer to do?

Oh, right, buy a phone that works instead. Like the 4G Evo from Sprint.
??
Also,??iPhone 4 is NOT 4G. Evo is 4G. What’s the difference? The speed and quality of the Internet connection. Do not be fooled by iPhone 4’s name. IPHONE 4 IS NOT 4G.
??
Repeat after me, “Fuck iPhone, I’m getting an Evo!
??
Don’t be a consumer who doesn’t care…
??

??
??

Let me say it again: iPhone 4??sucks as a phone.

??
??Lawsuits!??Or you can??ruin the look with tape. Or??Livestrong.

??
Or just shoot your iPhone 4??and get an Evo. You know you want to.
??
??
I’ve had the pleasure of using an Evo for the last month — Evo and iPad, what a pair. This way I don’t have to miss out on the cool iPhone apps I like. I can even use my old iPhone in wifi mode with Evo as my Internet. It works great.
??
??
Since I’m ranting, here are my five favorite things about Sprint’s HTC Evo phone:
??
1. Evo’s phone works as a phone! Calls are crisp, visual voicemail is efficient, and Sprint doesn’t drop calls in the middle of Palo Alto.
??
2. Wifi hotspot app and Internet service that is muuuuch faster than AT&T. I easily Internet-enable up to 8 laptops, iPads, iPod Touches and iPhones, Nintendo DS’s, and the devices of friends, wherever I am.
??
3. The gorgeous, huge screen.??Size matters, and I love watching videos on it. I get a lot of use out of the kickstand.
??
4. The camera. 8 megapixels, beautiful resolution, and fast. Also has videoconferencing built in, though no one I know uses it yet.
??
5. Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Maps are fast and make me much more productive than I was on my iPhone. Google Maps has voice navigation, and it is fantastic. It could use better voice input, though. Google, are you listening?

  1. How’s your battery life? I had to keep my Evo charging all the time. I did find a 1750mAh battery (http://www.amazon.com/Seidio-Innocell-1750-Extended-Battery/dp/B003OQUKMA) that helped a bit… what’s your take?
