    EVO 3D FOR GS2...SHOULD I DO IT ?

    Advertisement



    I request the assistance of a third party here.

    Why would you do or not do the trade ?

    Remember...I am trading my EVO for a gs2, not the other way round.

    Was a no brainier. Make sure it isn't blacklisted or has any issues. Not sure why anyone would want a evo instead of an s2.

    If you can check it out thoroughly first, do it. Try your similar card in it, check the screen.

    If its an online trade, request a pic with the persona name and date, and request good quality pics.

    The device is that of a family members. Device is in brilliant condition. I've played around with it, all is equal to that of a new gs2

    But what I really wanted to ask, especially you jf is if you have ever regretted the swap you made for your evo...wait...you have a gs2 right ?

    Only issue I can think of is when the device is locked and you push the home button to turn on the screen to unlock there is often a wait of about 2-3 seconds to get a response, is this normal ?

    Predictive text is a given. These days everyone does it. Sprint EOL the 3D. Its dead to them. EOL is end of life, means they wont carry or sell it once inventory runs dry.

    Get the S2. I am sure you have seen that it is considered the best Android device. If it is or isn't may be up to the beholder, however I have beholden both and feel you'd be foolish to pass one up.

    To answer your question
    No, I haven't even considered missing the Evo.
    Mine has no home button (sprints is a little different than the standard), but the phone is waking so it may take a second or two. If its rooted with custom kernel then you can change the CPU govener to speed wake by quickly ramping up the CPU. Sounds like the stock ramps up slowly or it just wakes slowly. Nothing to be concerned about.

    The nice thing is It's not touched-not rooted, It's as pure as when it first came out the box. Would a factory reset fix the delay ?

    Honestly, is the delay THAT noticeable? Or so important that it negates everything elseM

    Settings/language and input/ pick the keyboard that is in use and Change its settings.
