HTC EVO 4G Review

 

Long anticipated, hugely specified and just plain huge: there's a lot to like about the HTC EVO 4G . The first WiMAX phone in the US brings with it the promise of DSL-like mobile data access along with the flexibility of Google's Android OS, complete...

HTC Evo 4G Sprint review: HTC Evo 4G Sprint

 

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

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 and HTC DROID Incredible: side by side

 

Which would win in a fight, a lion or a bear? A great white or an orca? Jackie Chan or Jet Li? HTC's DROID Incredible or its EVO 4G? These two phones represent the best of the best right now, so naturally we're going to pit them against each other and...

HTC Evo 4G LTE review: Almost great

 

HTC's Evo 4G LTE smartphone is impressive at first glance, but it has drawbacks that make it difficult to recommend.

Excellent display; outstanding camera; impressive system performance; supports external storage; has distinctive kickstand on back

Limited to slow 3G network for the foreseeable future; somewhat uncomfortable to hold while talking; rear case shows fingerprints and smudges; software lacks sleek simplicity of stock Android 4.0 OS

The HTC Evo 4G LTE is a premium phone with plenty of positive qualities. It has a gorgeous display, a fantastic camera and impressive system performance. The device has a solid build with a distinctive kickstand that's both cool and convenient. It also...

HTC EVO 4G - 4G vs 3G, A Tale of The Tape

 

Sprint's marketing campaigns over the past few months have focused on the fact that the carrier was the first to launch a 4G network in the U.S. Building on that, the company has focused on the various things you can do with a 4G connection that...

Fast 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor ; Vibrant 4.3-inch touchscreen ; 8 megapixel camera ; 4G connectivity ; Mobile Hotspot capable

4G coverage is still somewhat limited ; Additional $10 fee each month for "Premium Data" service ; Slightly heavier than competing phones

Sprint may have touted "firsts" when it launched the EVO 4G and its WiMAX network, but the wireless carrier knows that its competition isn't far behind. As a result, Sprint must offer compelling handsets as well as killer speeds to attract users.

Critics' Choice: HTC Evo 4G Smartphone Review Roundup

 

For several years now, Sprint has been in next-to-last place among U.S. wireless network providers. But that might eventually change if Sprint continues to offer smartphones like the HTC EVO 4G ($200 with a new contract), a well-reviewed Android 2.1...

Out of all of the devices that Sprint carries, the HTC EVO 4G is the carrier's "wow" phone. It's an exclusive in the leagues of the Apple iPhone, Motorola DROID, HTC DROID Incredible, and could be the driver for a quarter of customer growth (which the...

HTC EVO 4G from Sprint Review

 

This is an amazing phone to hold and use. I haven't been this enchanted by an electronic gadget in quite some time. It seems like it can do everything- sometimes almost reading my mind. Of course, there is the occasional ‘huh' moment trying to figure...

Big, bright screen ; Fast Android 2.1 OS and processor ; 8Mp main camera ; Open source and app availability

Short battery life ; Limited 4G coverage ; No trackball or camera button
