    Looking at this phone in her hands, I think I can handle it. I tried the HTC HD2 at T mobile a few week ago...it wasnt bad.

    Next week cant get here soon enough....lol

    I believe someone said there isn't a slot to add storage. If it comes with 8GB internal and no slot to add more, is that plenty for 95% of the population?

    Wonder if that's the hardware issue causing the purported delay in releasing the phone? It needs a SD card for some apps similar to the situation with the Incredible. VZW had to include an SD card on release.

    The new phones with the 4.3 and larger screens are just way to big!!!! Might as well just carry a laptop! I'll stick with my Incredible!

    Yes I am stating my opinion! I have seen the Evo up close and it is definately not pocket friendly.

    I can't wait to pick one up. I want a huge screen and the X's 4.4" screen is one of the only reasons I am trading in my Droid. If your a manly man, a phone's screen size shouldn't slow you down! :biggrin: Even at 5", I carry things that are much bigger and much much heavier on my belt every single day.
