My gf has the Gnex, my brother has the SGS II.

The Gnex is pentile, but packed in at 720p resolution, you seriously CANNOT see the subpixels. Maybe...MAYBE if you hold the phone an inch from your eyeballs and focus hard enough.

HTC displays are built like crap. You can ask the nano molecular experts at Liquipel about that. I had my GF's Gnex liquipel'ed and they said that the Gnex is already sealed air tight, so it may not be as effective as an air loose phone like HTC and iPhone.

A few months ago, the GF and I went to an outdoor event where the grounds was dirt. She was on her phone pretty much all day (texted and calling) while I only used my HTC Evo 3D a few times. When we got home, there was dust UNDER the glass of my HTC phone! While her phone had no dust whatsoever under her phone. She loves her Gnex and her female coworker do as well. They all wanna trade in their iphones now cuz the 4G on her phone is so fast. (but that's YMMV depending on your city)
Yes, because you can judge a current flagship model by an old mid-line phone. shake head

It's going to be either the S3 or the Evo LTE. Currently I'm on 3G but Chicago is "anticipated" to roll out LTE in ~2 months. I think my best bet is to skip getting a Wimax phone and just get an LTE now and use 3G on it until LTE is rolled out.

I can get either the S3 or LTE for $200.
Get the S3. Another thing about HTC that sucks is that they can't code their Linux BlueZ bluetooth stacks for sh!t.

My Evo 3D will not phone book sync with my car, which is not new and doesn't have bluetooth 3.x or newer protocol. My car is still on bluetooth 2.x.

However, my brother's SGSII and gf's Gnex will both phone book sync w/my car just fine. There's a huge thread on XDA forums about this issue with HTC phones.

If you really like the HTC, test it with your car first. Personally, I am only recommending Samsung for family now. Had the Evo and then Evo 3D, HTC is falling behind. Sad, I really liked them 2yrs ago. It was a great rags to riches, small co to huge multi-national corporation success story. But, they need to seriously up their game to match Samsung. After all, Samsung is the one building parts for Apple gadgets. That should say something at least about Sammy.

What? It was their best phone for Sprint when it was released. What HTC Sprint phone was better back in July 2011?

Read the reviews (engadget is fine [engadget.com] for that [engadget.com]), go to the store and play with them, and then flip a coin. Big Grin Like I said before, they are both great phones.
Well, also consider that the SGS3 has a micro-SD slot in addition to the on-board memory. It also has a removable battery. Which means in 2yrs, when most batteries are crap...you can just buy a new one off ebay and have it run like new again!

The HTC has neither.

I've read good things about the Viper, but I haven't played with it at all... I was interested in the bigger screens, but for those interested in a 4 inch screen (like docnas?) I think it is a very decent phone at a steal of a price...
all (or most) of the reviews i've read say the viper sucks...but no first-hand experience

if you are talking about ESN clone, Galaxy S2 and Evo LTE can be easily cloned with your TP2 ESN. I don't know about S3 though.
Will LTE work on either of the two phones?

Do yourself and others a favor and research b4 you make statements like this. Evo 4g LTE has a micro-sd slot.

And still paying $10/month for premium data (or whatever it is called). I feel your pain. I'm not in a big city but our 4G clearwire coverage is spotty at best.
I don't even think the big city matters. I've had sprint for 3yrs. now and i live 10 miles east of LA and 4G is worthless. I drive to down to orange county all the time and 4G is rarely seen. I get 27% discount and still seriously considering dropping them because coverage is so crappy. I have several coworkers with Sprint and none of us are happy with them. One time I was in Santa Monica with my little bro. and we both have sprint but different phones and we were trying to look up this burger joint to place an order for pickup and it would search for 15 minutes and would never find it. By the time it did we were already on our way home. There data is definitely the worse!

Again, I don't have personal experience, but engadget [engadget.com]andpc mag [pcmag.com] both gave it decent reviews. Not saying it is a top of the line phone, but considering it is free, I don't think it is a bad device... but I haven't ever seen one in person or done extensive research, so I am just talking out my butt. Big Grin But hey, half this thread is just that, right? Wink

Better screen than the LTE? It is pentile and dimmer than the LTE... the colors are over-saturated, too... I don't think I've read a single professional review that places it as better than the LTE.
Must be me then. I am used to Galaxy S2's saturated AMOLED so I like the S3 screen more than my LTE.
Both of them have a better screen than Galaxy Nexus and 4S though.

Btw, got a lot of pms. I can't help you guys with ESN Swapping.

Check Howard Forums.

Soon? Most major markets will not see LTE service until spring of 2013. They are only doing a few test cities until at least the fall anyways. These are the only cities that will see LTE until then. Info via the Sprint.com Community forums.

Atlanta, GA
Athens, GA
Calhoun, GA
Carrollton, GA
Newnan, GA
Rome, GA
Dallas, TX
Fort Worth, TX
Granbury-Hood County, TX
Houston, TX
Huntsville, TX
San Antonio, TX
Waco, TX
Kansas City, MO-KS
St. Joseph, MO

If you live in a 4g market now.. go for it. After a year you will get the year upgrade credit and could use that for a new LTE device then and sell your old one online to pay some of the difference.

Spring 2013 still equals over 1 year locked into a "4G" device that has download speeds that are not even 1/10th of 4G LTE. Have you never seen a Superbowl ad for a movie playing in the Summer? COMING SOON, so yes, "SOON".

but for $100 more ( or less, if you consider the $50 in google wallet) the nexus is a way better choice. The top complains for the viper were battery, thickness, and lockups

I'm not trying to say it sucks. Just that it is probably a toss-up from a technical perspective, and comes down to personal opinion.

Sure, if you want a big phone... I was mentioning that it is smaller. And for some people, $100 is a lot for a phone. (Crazy talk, imo Smilie)
