Sprint won’t have an LTE network however, however that isn’t stopping the carrier from releasing new LTE phones. At an occurrence Wednesday evening, HTC and Sprint pulled back the curtains on the HTC Evo 4G LTE. I got the prospect to visualize out this dual-core Android 4.0 phone throughout a fast demo.
The first factor you’ll notice regarding the HTC Evo 4G LTE (hereafter brought up as simply the HTC Evo 4G, for simplicity’s sake) is that it’s rather giant in size. It has a 4.7-inch super LCD (720p) show, however the phone feels light-weight and is snug to carry. Personally, I’m a lot of of a follower of the four.5-inch show size, as seen on the Samsung Galaxy S II. The screen is bright and enticing, as you may expect from the high definition screen.
Navigating through Sense 4.0 on the HTC Evo 4G and in and out of apps was quick and fluid, due to the 1.5GHz, dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. It seemed, however, that I may virtually nada too quick through the screens sometimes, creating the HTC Sense 4.0 animations appear terribly sharp and boxy.
The standout feature by so much on the HTC Evo 4G is that the 8-megapixel camera, that uses a similar HTC ImageSense software and ImageChip because the company’s One line of phones. HTC says the planning of the phone was impressed by DSLR cameras, with the red accent round the camera lens and band round the middle—which additionally happens to function a kickstand.
The dedicated aluminum camera button was responsive. footage I took on the smartphone (under pressure, in closed quarters) came out surprisingly sharp and wonderfully quick. If I were yearning for a smartphone primarily based on the camera alone, the HTC Evo 4G would positively be a contender.
That fold-out kickstand may be a nice bit, too. It looks durable enough that it wouldn’t break off, however which may depend upon what proportion propping up for video viewing you may do. An HTC rep had a tough time obtaining the kickstand out for demonstration while not resorting to using fingernails, however.
The only alternative qualms you may have regarding the Evo 4G is that the prime shiny back cowl, that doesn’t extremely slot in aesthetically with the remainder of the smartphone’s look. The removable prime cowl hides the microSD card however additionally catches fingerprints simply.
The Evo 4G LTE are going to be offered for pre-order beginning could seven and can value $200 with a brand new two-year contract from Sprint.
