I still have the OG Evo, and still use it from time to time. As a phone, it was an absolute game changer. It ushered in the big screen era, it was the first 4g phone, and it's the phone that everyone rushed to copy after it was released and people saw how great it was.

The screen is not the best, it is big, it's bright, but it's mediocre quality at best. The camera is ok, but not great. It doesn't work well with the flash, and doesn't do low light at all. The battery life is far from great, and it has Sense loaded on it initially. In spite of all this the whole package is still a great phone. The call quality is fine, and the combination of everything that it brings to a table still seems to be more than the sum of the parts. It may not live up to the Galaxy S IIs of the world, but even today it's still a passable phone.

I use mine to test out roms, and play with a lot of things I might not be sure I'm ready to do on my every day phone. I love the phone, and I'd gladly trade in my Nexus S 4g for one of these with today's specs.
