Overall, the HTC is just a vastly superior phone.
This is where I have some concern. The OG Evo was rooted immediately for 2 reasons. 1) they were handed out freely at Google IO before release, and 2) Android 2.1 had way more holes. ( #2 is just speculation on my part).
Since the Evo, HTC has stepped up its bootloader locking game. Some of the newer devices have had to wait quite a while before getting s-off or even root (if I remember correctly). I know HTC has set up the HTC dev site, but from what I understand, that still leaves S-on. Unlocked, but S-on OOW (which, I'm not really concerned with the OOW since I accept that warranty is void once I root)
IDK. Just some thoughts. If anyone wants to correct me on any of this, please do. I'm sure I got some stuff wrong here.
