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

Powerful parts, a lovely screen, stunning design, and an excellent camera

from Cnet

With the $199.99 HTC Evo 4G LTE, both HTC and Sprint have gone well out of their way to rekindle that old Evo magic. It's a phone that's light-years better than its predecessors and flaunts enough features plus a delectable design to strike real fear in the hearts of competitors Samsung and Motorola. That said, this Evo has one rather large Achilles' heel at the moment: no 4G LTE. With access to high-speed data, the Evo will no doubt soar as its brother the HTC One X does on AT&T. Until Sprint's promised LTE network arrives, hopefully by summer, the Evo 4G LTE offers but a fraction of i... Full review

The phone is impressive, the responsiveness is great

from Beta News
The phone is beautifully designed. The sleek, slender form factor, even including the signature EVO 4G built-in kickstand, make this a remarkable update. For the general consumer the phone is impressive, the responsiveness is great. I love the evolution and simple design of the HTC EVO 4G line. The slender form factor did have to give up the removable battery but in the sake of optimization performance increased from the Android 4.0 based firmware, and the SoC hardware integration, it's not a terrible loss...

The Evo 4G LTE is the best Google-powered smartphone currently available for Sprint

from Wired
It’s called the Evo 4G LTE, but Sprint’s 4G LTE network hasn’t launched yet. The protruding camera is begging to get scuffed and scratched over the life of a 2-year contract. The One X is a better-looking phone... Full review

Gorgeous display, improved battery, with solid chassis

from TechRadar

Simply put, the HTC Evo 4G LTE is the best phone on Sprint. In fact, Sprint is really the major negative about this phone. For many, that won't matter. If you're tied to the network for some reason or another, the HTC Evo 4G LTE is your best bet.

If it takes Sprint a year to roll out LTE in your city, then you'll have LTE on your phone as soon as anyone else on Sprint's network does - and while those yet unfulfilled promises might make it a risky purchase, it's simply too good of a phone to really care.

From snapping photos to Dropbox integration, to a very sleek and very se... Full review


Excellent camera, pretty solid battery life, and thin and light, but not so light that it feels cheap

from TechCrunch

To be quite honest, the biggest issue I have with this phone is its design. I’m not a fan of the bubbly camera sensor that bulges out of the backside of the phone. I’m uncomfortable with this shiny black plastic, and the red stripe across the back is a bit much for me. But that’s totally my preference, and there are probably plenty of people out there who enjoy this type of differentiation.

That said, I can’t find much else wrong with it. The Evo 4G LTE is thin and light, but not so light that it feels cheap. It has a great display with plenty of real-estate,... Full review


Excellent user experience and phone design works really well

from Ubergizmo

While Sprint does not have an official “HTC One” phone, rest assured that the Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE can go toe to toe with the HTC One X. If anything, I think that Sprint should not have messed with the original name because it dilutes the message, and can’t leverage all the marketing that HTC had done for the One Series.

Of course, the missing part here is the LTE network. As it stands, Sprint is rolling it out, but chances are that you will be in a location that has not been covered yet. Also, we would recommend doing some homework to understand the different &ld... Full review

Excellent hardware, with a fast processor, good battery life and a gorgeous display

from Android Central

As we've been saying since our first encounter with the EVO 4G LTE, Sprint has taken the HTC One X and actually improved on it, at least under the hood, adding a removable microSD card. For some, that will be be the deciding factor. For others, it's not a big deal. The reaction to Sprint's decision to deviate from the One X design has been nothing short of political fire and brimstone. Folks either love it or hate it. (Or at least have a resounding "meh," we suppose.) But whether or not you like it, HTC obviously has thrown the full weight of its design team at the EVO. There's nothing half... Full review


Big speed, beautiful display, and Sprint's best camera

from Complex
With the same awesome camera features, processing power, and dynamic software, the Evo 4G LTE not only hones the mobile dexterity of the One series—it makes additional strides in performance. The two biggest being faster shutter speeds and a stunning display. But with Sprint’s LTE network inactive until next year, HTC’s new giant may have a short shelf life, especially if Sprint keeps its holiday lineup limited. If power ranks higher than 4G on your priority list, like its predecessors, the new Evo serves as the next great upgrade on the Now Network... Full review

Superb build quality, awesome camera, decent battery life

from Pocketables

If your original HTC EVO 4G is on life-support, and you’re looking to upgrade, look no further. Seriously. I’m not just saying that because I’m the Managing Editor of Good and EVO, either. This phone takes everything that’s awesome about the OG EVO and makes it about 1,000 times better.

If you’ve got an EVO 3D, you still might want to upgrade to this device (I am). The camera alone is light-years ahead of that on the EVO 3D, and I can’t wait for LTE to light up in my neck of the woods. I hear that HD calling is pretty sweet, too, if that ever take... Full review


A device that’s fast, powerful, fun, and sleek all the while being able to consume, stream, and download as much as they want

from GottaBeMobile

The HTC EVO 4G LTE will retail for $200 on a two-year contract on Sprint. The device will contend at this time with the Smasung Galaxy Nexus on the high-end LTE market on Sprint’s lineup. At $200, it offers excellent value to those who are patient as LTE, the phone’s big feature, is still not yet quite readily available on the Now Network. Given Sprint’s claim to fame with unlimited data without throttling, power users who are willing to go through Sprint’s Network Vision expansion growing pains will be handsomely rewarded in the future with a device that’s fas...
