    To my understanding you can't take hd pictures or video unless your camera is 8mp so the hd on EVO must be for streaming only. I'll take thunderbolt. Plus Verizon 4g is faster.

    Ya I didn't mention that the EVO 3D uses two 5MP cameras on the back for of course 3d but also produce 1080p I don't know how that wizardry works though... edited

    Interesting point you make there...
    I have a problem in my building with Verizon. ATT has great reception in the middle of the building, but VZW drops to zero.

    I called VZW one day, and they said CDMA signals have a hard time penetrating buildings, compared to GSM. She also tried to justify it by saying something about CDMA being more secure, its a tradeoff, etc. etc.

    So is a 4G signal better at penetrating walls than a 3G signal?

    if both phones were available on the same carrier that would have made a tough decision. but since one is on the best carrier in the country and the other is on one of the worst, it's not a contest really.

    Yeah, I was about to say!

    The EVO looks like a good device, but its on Sprint. Sprint 4G speeds are not noticeably faster than Verizon's 3G speeds, so I just can't see a reason for doing that.

    The specs are nice, but the network just kills it. Kind of like the Atrix on AT&T.

    Wonder how much AT&T and Sprint are paying Moto and HTC to have exclusivity to their top end devices?

    Tough decision. Verizon's network is superior, but I'd probably take the Evo 3D over the Thunderbolt if it was on Verizon. I had Sprint, I didn't like it one bit.

    5MP is higher resolution then 1080 HD, 1080 is about 3mp.

    The Evo 3D absolutely slaps the Thunderbolt. Here is Verizon hyping up a rebranded EVO, a year old phone, and Sprint's getting a new version with dual core, more ram, a better screen, and to top it off 3D. It's really sad.

    Well it has to do with Mhz. Sprint wimax uses 2500 Mhz while LTE uses 700 Mhz. The lower the Mhz the better the penetration
