Have you actually experienced GPS issues firsthand? I coulda sworn Samsung said that they fixed Galaxy S GPS issues for the Epic pre-launch. Did you make sure to turn on aGPS?

Though it may appear polished, how useful actually is Face Time? I mean, I don't know anyone with an iPhone4. Contrast that with the number of people I know with Skype (which Fring for Android and Apple IIRC use). I think i'd rather stick with the Evo for videochat too.

Or if you want a capable GPU. Playing emulators on the Evo is a bit of a pain. If the PSXdroid developer ever bothers to update his app, the Epic will be even closer to perfection (like getting the dualshock to work instead of having to use the wiimote or keyboard.

My first unit was dropped quite a few times, not so much as a mark. I was using a screen protector but took it off once it started to peel up, i've heard the screen is insanely hard to scratch (haven't had any occur yet, had to replace my first one for speaker issues anyway though).
Bummed that I missed the mail yesterday, have to wait 'til Tuesday to get my phone now (fuck Labor Day).
