Detailed review
This is a great phone so far (5 days of ownership so far). Most of the EVO's warts have been taken care of with updates (connectivity, multitasking). Looking forward to Jelly Bean in the coming months. Every other Anrdoid device I've had, I've rooted and ROM'd. No such desire so far with this one.
