I have had my Evo 4G since release in June of 2010 and I am starting to get ancy and am looking to replace it. I have been considering the Samsung Galaxy IIs (available by preorder only) with an even larger screen. What do all of you other Evo owners think?
Replace the evo 4g with the Samsung galaxy S II: YES or NO?
and if no, what else would you consider for a replacement?

I am debating this right now as well. I am a bit iffy on the TouchWiz interface and I'm not sure I would ever stop hitting the home button thinking it was menu. That's why I haven't pre-ordered it yet. I'm going to have to go and play with one in person. There are several things with my Evo that will probably keep me away from a HTC phone this next round....based mainly on the quality of their parts like camera sensors, speakers, battery life. Sense doesn't out weigh those items for me. BUT my Evo works (even with its frustrations), its fast and does what I need. It's not like how big of a jump the Hero was to the Evo. My gawd that Hero was garbage. Overall though, I might pull the trigger considering that this time next year, I'd be up for a new phone upgrade again.
Features that I would be looking forward to:
Features holding me back:
im so used to sense i cant really see myself re learing a new set up. plus even with all the problems HTC has kicked out quite a few updates and MR pretty fast compared to other phones. true there are still some bugs but all in all like you said. my phone works and its still pretty quick. i still might jump on the 3D wagon..played with one the other day and the 3D abilities were pretty sweet...even though you can only send them to someone with a 3D capable phone..but still...sweet.
