Let me know if you want to get rid of your EVO. I still have mine and still use it at the gym and long trips as a media player. The kickstand and removable (read here SWAPABLE) batteries make it great on long flights (Takes COURAGE to keep a headphone jack!!) and fits great on my arm at the gym and functions as an emergency FM radio in a pinch.
I have bought one more, using it as a Home security monitor. I have:
A sound detector https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....sounddetector
Security Camera App https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ivuu
VOIP dialer that can act as a NATIVE DIALER and provide a calling service.
With that setup, I can place the device in a handy spot.. and set the noise parameters to hit the threshold you want so if the Smoke alarm goes off or a window breaks it will detect the noise and auto dial out to my phone.
I then can check Alfred to see what is going on and decide what I want to do from there!
