We currently have Droids and have been happy with them but the Evo 4G seems to have everything we're missing from our Droids. On top of that we can save $50+ every month on our bill over what we're currently paying and that includes more airtime, more features and 4G. My Droid is rooted and overclocked and my wife's is bone stock running Froyo. I'm wondering how we will like this transition and if there's anything we should know. I realize it's a step down in nationwide coverage but prior to moving to VZW we had T-Mobile and the coverage was sufficient and Sprint is very similar, especially in our area. My concern is with the 4G itself and how it affects battery life and how it performs overall. I messed with some of the Evo 4G's at the store including a couple employees personal phones and the speeds were a nice increase over 3G. My concern however is it's affect on battery life as the employees all had their 4G turned off and had to enable it. He said it really affects battery life so if a salesman is telling me that then it must REALLY affect battery life. Seems if that's a big reason for the move it wouldn't make sense to move and pay an extra $10 per line for 4G if we had it disabled. The Evo 4G itself seems like a very nice phone and I'm sure we'll like it as well. Seems that a little larger is about the only negative but the positives far outweigh this.
So, thoughts? Looking for someone who has made this move or someone who has weighed pros & cons in making the move and really don't want people speculating or fanboying because I have no ties to anyone other than Android here.
