it was a great phone, but verizon didn't work where I lived or at work.
I switched to Sprint after checking out the carrier coverage comparison tool by root wireless and now have great coverage. I love the HTC evo 4g! The size is actually a nice feature. I got tired of using the smaller screen.
I'm ok with htc sense; it's the only one I'm ok with so far. I hated touchwiz. Long ago I had the nexus 1 and liked it plain. I admit sense isn't perfect but it looks cool and you aren't forced into to syncing services with their version of mail, peep or htc facebook, etc...
