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.

Sprint's killer Android phone sports a huge display, blazing 4G speeds, and HD video recording.

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...

HTC EVO 4G review

 

As a mobile platform, the EVO 4G's Android foundation is still an infant -- well, okay, perhaps it's a tweener -- but in its two-odd years in the public spotlight, the list of truly revolutionary devices to use it has been a significant one: the G1 for...

Huge, vibrant display ; Mobile hotspot works beautifully ; WiMAX compatibility

Nearly too big for one-handed use ; WiMAX can be spotty ; 720p video quality not great

HTC EVO 4G (Sprint)

 

The phone doesn't have a physical keyboard, so you're reliant on HTC's touch keyboard. While it's visually attractive and more accurate than the standard Android keyboard, it's nowhere near as easy or accurate as the iPhone keyboard; I found myself...

First WiMAX phone. Excellent Web browser with some Flash. Terrific 4.3-inch screen. Two cameras. Wi-Fi hotspot mode

Not a great voice phone. 4G coverage is very limited. 4G-only battery life is unflattering

The first WiMAX phone in the U.S. is a terrific platform for streaming media and Web browsing, and it gets your laptop online with Sprint's 4G network. Just keep an eye out for an outlet when you're only using 4G.

HTC EVO 4G Review

 

High-end Android devices are coming fast and furious these days, but the HTC EVO 4G manages to be in a class all by itself. Save for 4G there aren't any features of the EVO we haven't seen on other phones before, it's just that we've never seen them...
