Just the wifi is busted. The rest works.

Battery life is horrible so they have to keep them plugged up constantly. No thanks.
Motorola has never felt solid to me. My EVO can stay charged around 8 hrs with moderate use. The phone was not intended to be a game hog 24/7. I dunno what the heck they do to have it plugged up ALL the time. I unplug mine when I get up around noon and put it on charge around 9 PM.

I'm considering an iPhone, along with Win Phone 7 especially if iOS 5 brings about the needed changes.
Android don't run like crap here... HTC Desire HD Android 2.3...smooth as hell with no glitches at all, just as it was before i updated to gingerbread. Went to Android from iphone 4 and will never look back.
