    Default Was thinking about Going back to Evo 4G

    I was thinking about going back to my Evo 4G or maybe getting the new Atrix 4G. Every time I do, the iPhone does something new I like. Ahh... Maybe I'm just getting used to it, plus the thought of carrying a extra battery and 3 chargers is getting old.

    yeah if your on the iPhone 4, none of those devices will compare with battery. My Inspire does not compare in battery life

    If you're on ATT then you're blessed with GSM. Get yourself an Atrix and just
    switch sims whenever you please.

    So in all actuality, you have to purchase a utility belt alongside the Evo in order to make use of it.. Hmm..

    I came FROM Android to the iPhone 4. There is no way I will go back, not ever. The ONLY thing I miss is Google Maps Navigation. Aside from that, I could never give up my better battery life, better build quality, etc.

    I moved from the Evo to the iPhone. I would suggest a jail break with the following items out of Cydia.

    LockInfo - Lets you have the status bar pulldown like android for notifications.

    SBSettings - Lets you swipe the status bar left to right for toggles like you had from the HTC widget.

    Popup Blocker - Lets you hide those annoying popup push alerts because you have them in the status bar anyways.

    Its what ever makes you happy. Personally I can't see the Evo offering more than the i4, but everyone is different. GL with your decision )

    I tried the EVO for a week before getting my iph4. I came back.

    I just installed Popup Blocker. My understanding is just select "push" and that should take care of the FB ones correct? Those are the worst when I have to answer it in order to hang up a phone call.

    Yeah, you'll look at you're Evo's screen and say "crap, the iPhone 4 looks so much better"

    LOL, well, the iPhone 4 has a much better app store, and iOS 5 will be here, well, in June or July, idk, 4g is really nice, I have an iPhone 4 and if you jailbreak it is SO worth it

    Can't see a return to non-retina display myself OR another bout of battery anxiety.

    I think the OP is a joke. No reasonable human would carry three chargers and two batteries no matter what sort of small benefit some guy may see in an Android. I know I'd use an HTC before I had to carry multiple batteries and chargers to use my iPhone.

    But for me, an avid book reader on my iPhone, the display makes the phone.

    I came from the Evo to the Iphone 4 a week ago. There is only two things the iphone 4 really does better and that is battery life and sync to my apple computer. I could actually do way more with my Evo. I do like the Ipone 4 though. I also think I liked the Android market better then the App store. I will stay with Apple though due to owning everything else apple. Really if I did not own macs I would of stayed with Android. I say all this while being very satisfied with the Iphone though. I think if Iphone doesn't make some changes though they will be left behind by Android. I feel like android is developing much faster the Apple.

    The most thing I do miss about the Evo is the Android browser which blows Ios browser away.

    In settings I have no options for a pop up blocker?

    Am I missing something here ?
