Iphone 4 vs EVO 4g!

So with the launch of this new iPhone 4 it seems that the beloved EVO 4G has some competition, or does it?

Sprint launched the EVO 4G on June 4th for 200 bucks, the Apple iPhone 4 released today twenty days later for the same 200 bucks.

But how do they stack up against each other?

Internally speaking there are some pretty nice stuff; firstly the EVO and Iphone 4 run 1GHZ processors. The only real difference between these processors is, the iPhone 4 runs the Apple A4 processor (Samsung to be exact), while the EVO 4G is running the popular SnapDragon Processor.  

 Moving forward, the primary or forward facing camera on the Sprint EVO 4G is 8 megapixels and on the iPhone 4 it is only 5 megapixels. But I’m sure we can look past simple megapixels right?

When recording video is in question, the iPhone 4’s video recording capabilities is listed as 720p at 30 frames per second, the EVO’s falls a littel  short of that recording in 720p but only at 25 frames per second.  

Let’s move on to the screen, the iPhone 4’s screen is 3.5 inches and displays  960 x 640 pixel resolution (without yellowing), the EVO 4G is 4.3 inch screen and displays  800 x 480 pixel resolution.  

The Sprint EVO is running on 3G/4G depending on where you are in the world, the Apple iPhone 4 is running 3G speeds on At&t. 

The EVO is considerably heavier than the iPhone 4 weighing in at 6 ounces, and the lightweight iPhone 4 being a scrawny 4.8 ounces.

 Both the iPhone 4 and the EVO 4G have video conferencing with their front facing cameras, the iPhone 4 is using a proprietary service called Facetime and the EVO 4G is equipped with an application called Qik which is accessible over 3G and 4G wireless, as opposed to Facetime which is a Wi-Fi only application.

The iPhone 4 is sporting some pretty power in the “sensors” department; the iphone 4 has a three-axis gyro, a digital compass, a proximity sensor, an ambient light sensor and GPS. While the EVO 4G has all of that except the digital compass and the ever amazing three axis gyro.

There are some more details between the two phones, I have picked out some of the key components that make these two phones amazing devices.

Pairing these two phones, reminds me of the old fashioned Mac vs PC debate, where it is simply a subjective opinion.  Mine can do this, and yours can’t. While most of the time you don’t use the feature anyway.

So whose side are you on?

I’m with the EVO if it matters to anyone.

Apple and EVO lovers stand up and tell me why your phone is better.
