Same..

And Froyo DOES make it much faster! Especially the Internet (which I don't really get, but I'm not complaining!)

Spend a little time with the Incredible and you may notice there is some weird sluggishness with the Evo/Droid phones that the Incredible does not have.

I am hoping that Froyo will launch everything up to parity and we can FINALLY see the interface be buttery smooth for all the phones

I think what you say was true before I installed 2.2 (Froyo). But with Froyo, I don't notice much difference (if any) vs. my sister in laws Incredible...I can't speak to the Evo, as I've only played with one once and for just a few minutes...

Samsung Omnia:



It's underpowered and Windows Mobile is ****. Can't wait to get a Droid X when my contract expires in a few months.

HTC Droid Eris

I generally like it, but the recent update to 2.1 has caused the phone to occasionally do some weird things. The annoyances aren't deal breakers. My biggest complaint is that it has a pretty slow CPU.

I kinda wish the homebrew community would set out to really make some sort of OS variation that REALLY runs snappy on these Qualcomm 528mhz chips. Granted, WinMo 6.5 feels a lot faster on my new phone than 6.0 did on my old Blackjack, but I'd really like to run an OS on this that's snappy above all else.


... anyway, my phones:

HTC Pure:



.. and my previous phone, a Samsung Blackjack with the Samsung WinMo 6.0 ROM, overclocked from ~190mhz to 252 (still got pretty good battery life)... I'm giving this to my 12 yr old after she demonstrates a month or so of responsibility with her "new" LG CU400.

Blackberry Bold 9700, but I'm planning on a Droid based phone (HTC Incredible maybe) in the near future.

My wife's Garminfone



I love this phone and I especially love how the Garmin GPS is integrated into everything. The only bad thing I could say for it, which isn't really bad, is that it came with Android 1.6 version with some added 2.0 stuff like pinch to zoom, exchange support etc. so it isn't the latest Android version, but Garmin just updated their faq saying they are "actively pursuing an upgrade to a newer version of Android".

I've seen roms that have that cpu at 1ghz.
