    New phone recommendation

    I'm a sprint customer, and have been an owner of the HTC Evo for 3 years. It's been amazing and I would keep it longer, but its finally starting to wear out. Any recommendations on a replacement phone that is similar as possible to the Evo? Also, will they be able to switch all of my apps over?

    Thanks in Advance

    I was just going to add, I'm not a fan of the iphone. My wife has one, don't care for it. So i've ruled that out.

    I LOVE my HTC One...can't answer the other questions because I don't know. But I will buy the next One as well...easily the best phone I have owned.

    Re: New phone recommendation

    I really like my Galaxy S5. Not sure how it compares to the Evo size-wise. If you go with the S5 you'll definitely want to get setup for wireless charging. It's a pia to open the microUSB port cover every time you need to plug it in otherwise. Once you go wireless charging you'll never want anything else.

    I almost returned my S5 to get a One when I found out the S5 couldn't (yet) be rooted. I might get one anyway for 'app testing'. I really like HTC phones.

    I've been happy with the Nexus5. I agree with 1100***** that wireless charging is great.

    I also have a HTC One and really like it. Good battery life. Good rugged metal case. Fits in pocket nicely. It replaced a HTC Thunderbolt which I heard HTC officially apologized for. Battery life was horrible on that thing.

    Re: New phone recommendation

    I hate my Galaxy S3. Worst phone I've ever owned and I'm not a power user. Only thing I like about it is the screen size.

    My next phone is going to be the HTC One.

    The newish Motorola android phones are really nice.

    Re: New phone recommendation

    I've been happy with my S4. I don't think they can transfer apps, but any apps you've purchased will be available to you in your Google Play account. You just have to re-download them.

    Re: New phone recommendation

    I can't believe your Evo lasted this long, especially on Sprint's network! Mine was garbage by the time my two years expired, and I treat my phones well.

    My advice - switch to Verizon and get a new iPhone or Galaxy. You will be amazed how much better their LTE is, as well as the battery life.

    I'm actually looking at this in the fairly near future too. Switching over to Verizon, and I've loved my S3, but it's kind of run its course, as well. Any opinion on the latest generations of the iPhone vs. Galaxy?

    Re: New phone recommendation

    If you like the EVO, the HTC One would probably be the best choice. And I think when you sign into your Google account your apps will get installed. Assuming you allowed Google to sync app data. I'm thinking mine did when I switched from the S4 to the S5. Not 100% on that though. You might have to re-download them as ianconnor said.
