It's no secret that HTC has had a rough time competing with other big name smartphone manufacturers in the last couple of years. It looked like the company might be turning things around with its One series and the EVO 4G LTE for Sprint, but then the company got hit with another delay thanks to a U.S. Customs review. The EVO 4G LTE is finally here though, and Sprint customers can finally pick up this new, highly anticipated smartphone. The HTC EVO 4G LTE sports many of the high-end features you'd want in a smartphone today including Android 4.0, a 4.7-inch HD display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera, and 4G LTE connectivity. The phone also comes with s kickstand built-in... HTC EVO 4G LTE Android Smartphone Review
battery reset could be available with a key combination ... for htc I think you have to hold the power button down for 10 secs
I can't help wondering how much of a game changer US users are going to find LTE to be. It's been available here in Stockholm for more than two and one-half years now, but when a major newspaper tested speeds in central Stockholm a few days ago (http://www.dn.se/ekonomi/din-ekonomi/omojligt-na-superhastigheter-med-4g - HH readers who don't have Swedish can use, e g, Google Translate on the article text), it was found that far from the «up to 80 Mb/s» advertised. downstream speeds lay in the 15 - 20 Mb/s range, i e, not so very much better than 3G. Guess I'll stick with my desktop and measured fibre-cable speeds of around 95 Mb/s for now....
I'd really like to see users organise a general protest to put an end to this business of producers rendering it impossible to replace the original battery in their phones, before it becomes an unstoppable trend. Not surprisingly, this trend seems to originate with Apple, which does everything in its power save booby-trapping its devices to prevent users from «tempering» with them. This is carrying planned obsolescence just a tad too far....
I have no qualifications to speak about the technical aspects of this phone. However, I just traded up from the HTC EVO 4G, and although the ringtone volume buttons are in the same position, I have been hitting them in error whenever I hold the phone in my left hand. The camera button is also on the right side of the phone so I'm also taking a lot of photos of my elbow. so my only complaint at this point is that these buttons are a little too sensitive.
One of the worst cell phones I have ever used. Almost as bad as the first Windows phones. HTC Android operating system is nothing like the Samsung Android operating system. Sprint Business plan from my employer makes it free for me. I am ready to sell it on eBay and buy my own Samsung or iPhone. Apps are slow can't get voice commands to work. Now I understand when my friend told me, " Anything other than an iPhone is just a compromise."
