No freezing..rarely ever an issue.
The problem with android is there is no uniform OS so people are waiting for things that may never get updated unless they root their phone. And to root this new EVO was pretty easy, but then to update the radios and other things takes serious time..you have to install ubuntu as a safeguard to prevent bricking the phone, and its a pretty detailed process.
What I am saying is that the iOS for me just works. It is simple and easy and fast. That is what I need in a phone more than anything. So I am going to switch out of sprint (which is my main motivation..horrible network) and am doing some research on verizon and at&t.
I think every platform has issues, it just depends which you're willing to overlook.
It's a shame really, they are really expensive and something that you live with every day, you'd think spending so much on a phone you'd be able to get something exactly what you want.
My girlfriend has a Nokia Lumia and it's a nice phone, the lack of apps would be a problem for me. Whichever way I go i'm going to have to compromise, as I said, with the price you have to pay for a phone it makes compromise harder.
