HTC EVO 4G Review

 

HTC EVO 4G ended the long reign of HD2 as the most hardware advanced smartphone in the market by HTC. While the time is changing need to innovate something more powerful with a list of most desired features comes, HTC was being pushed  to design a...

This new device seems to become the first realistic step of HTC to compete with Apple. The device itself got released earlier than the iPhone 4 which made the carrier to run short on the device not once but already twice. Then the 4G connectivity and...

HTC EVO 4G review

 

We take a long hard look at Sprint's first 4G smartphone to see if it lives up to the hype

4G ; The gigantic display is, in a word, amazing ; It's the most responsive Android phone to date

Extra $10 monthly fee is mandatory even if you won't be using 4G, video chat, etc ; Enormous size will be a turn-off for some ; Battery life

If you're looking for a powerful smartphone and don't mind a 4G/enhanced services tax and a little bulk to go along with it, the buck stops here. The EVO 4G is big, beautiful and it

The Sprint HTC EVO 4G Review

 

It's really not that big. It seems like it would be based on the specs and photos, but in reality the Sprint EVO 4G by HTC just isn't that big. And it's not levied as an insult, I just mean to say that the EVO is manageable in size.

Review: Sprint HTC EVO

 

The first 4G Android phone manages to be both a blazing fast internet machine and a frustrating battery-draining succubus.

Fantastic camera. Blazing fast internet. More connection options than Grand Central Station. Slick user interface easy for novices, yet allows power users to get their nerd on. Dead-simple tethering. Touchscreen keyboard offers ample space, even for...

4G coverage spottier than an oil-stained Louisiana beach. Odd dimness issues with display. Android cut/copy/paste so poor you’d do better rekeying. Battery life shorter than Verne Troyer

HTC Evo 4G Review

 

The HTC Evo 4G is undoubtedly Sprint's best smart phone to date, delivering nearly all the specs power users could possibly hope for in a well-crafted design. Though it may simply be too large for some, in many ways the Evo 4G is also the best Android...

Large, gorgeous 4.3-inch display, Blazing downloads in 4G areas, Fast 1-GHz processor, Very good 8-MP camera and 720p video camcorder (outdoors), Two-way video calling capability

4G coverage not yet widespread, Relatively short battery life, Tough to type quickly without errors, Doesn't yet support Flash Player 10.1

HTC EVO 4G

 

HTC has struck gold again with the HTC EVO 4G ($200 with a two-year contract from Sprint), which is easily the best Android smartphone available. The EVO 4G packs powerful specs and a lot of features in a slick, stylish design. The biggest drawback is...

Superb 8-megapixel camera ; Gorgeous, responsive display

4G coverage isn't everywhere

The speedy HTC EVO 4G packs in some powerful specs and a variety of multimedia features into a stylish, minimalist design, but not everybody will get to enjoy one of its best features--4G connectivity.

HTC Evo 4G Sprint review:

 

Editors' note: The ratings for this product have been updated since the review's original publish date due to new products that have entered the market.

The HTC Evo 4G delivered respectable 4G speeds, and the mobile hot-spot feature lets you connect up to eight devices. The smartphone has a front-facing camera for video chats and also comes with an 8-megapixel camera with HD-video-recording...

Sprint's 4G network is limited at this time, making the mandatory $10 premium data add-on tough to swallow for anyone outside of the coverage area. The Evo lacks support for Bluetooth voice-activated dialing. The battery drains quickly with 4G.

The HTC Evo 4G is easily Sprint's best smartphone and one of today's top Android devices. It also shows the promise of 4G, which will grow as Sprint's WiMax network expands, but until there's broader 4G coverage, it's hard to agree with the mandatory...
