Fantastic screen, speedy performance, solid build quality


The HTC EVO 4G LTE is a tough nut to crack: on the one hand, I love its solid hardware and speedy performance, but the data speeds offered by Sprint's 3G network really put a damper on my excitement. If you are married to Sprint's network, then by all means, the EVO 4G LTE is the best Android smartphone available to you right now. But if you have the luxury of shopping around on different carriers, the One X from AT&T offers the same display, performance, software, and camera as the EVO, and has the advantage of a wickedly fast LTE network that can be used right now. Of course, if you buy the EVO, you are more or less buying into Sprint's future plans, and the phone stands to only get better over time as the LTE network and HD Voice features eventually become available. And at $199.99 with a new two-year contract, the EVO 4G LTE does offer a bit better bang for your buck than the One X (or the One S, for that matter), so that might make it a winner for many right there.
