I really really wanted the Evo, but the $199.99 to upgrade, I just couldnt justify, so I got the Optimus. I love the phone! It does what I want and I have not had any trouble with it. I'm glad I made the decision to get it and I would recommend the phone. I got the purple one, and love the color. Just get a protector for it. Just my humble opinion...
In my opinion both phones are great. I would choose the Evo over the Optimus mainly because the Evo has the access to 4g and it does have the larger screen. I am not even in a 4g are but still would choose this over the other. No matter what you choose I know you will be happy wither either one.
