HTC Evo Design 4G ( Boost Mobile)


Many of the phones and features once reserved for nationwide major carriers have begun to trickle down to prepaid cellular providers. A case in point is the HTC Evo Design 4G for Boost Mobile. This pricey $299.99 smartphone appears to be a modern...

The HTC Evo Design 4G boasts a premium, well-crafted design. It also offers WiMax 4G data, Android 4.0, and HTC's Sense interface.

The Evo Design 4G suffers from short battery life, a slow processor, and poor call quality.

The HTC Evo Design 4G may be Boost Mobile's top dog but it's fenced in by a high price and weak performance.

HTC EVO Design 4G (Boost Mobile)


The HTC EVO Design 4G gets you fast data speeds and inexpensive monthly plans, making it a top pick on Boost Mobile.

Fast 4G WiMAX speeds. Sharp display. Comfortable to hold and use. Good call quality

Single-core processor. Slow data without WiMAX

The HTC EVO Design 4G is Boost Mobile's first smartphone to run on Sprint's WiMAX network. It's also the best smartphone currently available on Boost, with a lovely, crisp display, good call quality, and fast data speeds if you're covered by WiMAX....

HTC EVO Design 4G review


It's no secret that we were downright smitten when HTC dropped 2010's proverbial bombshell: the EVO 4G. A knockout device that served not only as WiMAX's

Vibrant qHD display ; High quality metals and plastics ; World phone

Average battery life ; Relatively thick ; WiMax not the pull it used to be

Despite great materials and a gorgeous screen, the average performance and so-so battery life keep it from being a slam dunk.

HTC EVO Design 4G (Sprint)


The HTC EVO Design 4G is a great affordable smartphone for Sprint. At $99.99 with a two-year contract, it's the second 4G smartphone on Sprint to launch for less than $100, though some older 4G phones now cost less than $100 up front. But the EVO...

Fast 4G speeds. World phone. Gorgeous screen. Comfortable to hold and use

Mediocre call quality. Limited video codec support

The HTC EVO Design 4G is a comfortable world phone that offers solid performance and 4G speeds at a good price.

HTC EVO Design 4G (Sprint) Review


The $99 HTC EVO Design 4G takes some of the EVO 4G's best features and puts them in a smaller, sleeker package. This Android phone offers snappy performance, fast 4G speeds, and 720p video recording, plus world phone capability. Our only major...

Sophisticated design, Strong performance, Fast 4G speeds, World roaming capability

A bit thick, Mediocre battery life

HTC Evo Design 4G (Sprint)


HTC might have scaled back with the Design 4G, but that doesn't make it a mediocre phone by any means. The Android 2.3 Gingerbread device has a 1.2GHz processor, a 5-megapixel rear camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and comes with an 8GB...

The HTC Evo Design 4G has an understated black-on-black design, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and two cameras, and is a world phone. It comes with 8GB of memory preinstalled

The stubborn back cover is hard to remove and the speakerphone could be better. A dedicated hardware shutter button wouldn't go amiss

The HTC Evo Design 4G gives you a lot of smartphone for a good price--fast 4G speeds, a good camera, a strong processor, and a sophisticated design. It's an excellent choice for Sprint customers, except those who are specifically looking for a...

HTC EVO Design 4G Review [Video]


Here we have the *near* smallest smartphone to carry the legendary EVO namesake, and with a 4-inch S-LCD display with qHD resolution and price tag of under $100 right out of the gate, we've got to wonder if this is the perfect package for petite palms....

This device isn't going to be the next step for you if you're looking to upgrade from the previous EVO or especially the EVO 3D since its processor takes the EVO Design to the cleaners, but without comparing to the rest of its close family, this device...

HTC EVO Design 4G Review


When Sprint announced last year that the HTC EVO 4G was just the first in a family of EVO products we were a bit skeptical, but here you have the EVO Design 4G, the 5th member of the EVO family. The EVO Design 4G is quite the looker with an aluminum...

HTC EVO Design 4G Review


It is currently available from Sprint for $100 with a new two-year service contract and a $50 mail-in rebate. Without the contract (and carrier subsidy) this handset goes for $400

World Phone, so it's a better option for those who travel internationally ; Relatively small ; Solidly built ; Good battery life ; Capable camera

No Microsoft Office-compatible software included ; Voice quality is OK, but not great ; Some issues with camera flash

You should be able to get through a weekend trip without the charger, which is a plus for those who like to travel light. That's a really nice bonus these days -- few smartphones can last so long

HTC EVO Design 4G


The HTC EVO Design 4G continues the popular EVO line for Sprint, but for a fraction of the cost of what you'd normally expect to pay for the high-end Android smartphone line. The EVO Design 4G is attractive and has that unmistakable HTC build quality,...

Priced at just $99 with new contract ; Nice design and build quality ; Decent camera performance

Keyboard and applications lag and stutter ; It's a little on the thick side ; Swiping on homescreen always turns Sense carousel

Should you buy an HTC EVO Design 4G for Sprint? That all depends on what you're looking for. If you want a decent Android smartphone and don't care for dual-core processing beasts, yes. Buy this. If you want an Android smartphone for just $100 on a...
