Feeling Up Sprint’s HTC Evo 4G + Pictures

I spent a little time with HTC’s Android-powered Evo 4G, which is coming to Sprint next month. The first thing that jumped out at me was the screen — it’s frickin’ huge! I enjoyed the 3.7-inch screen on the HTC Nexus One when I spent a few days with it, but the 4.3-incher on the Evo 4G makes it look ordinary.

The shape isn’t as unusual as the HTC Incredible’s, but it’s still on the boxy side. If you dig the curves of the Apple iPhone of Palm Pre then you might not like the aesthetics of the Evo 4G. Looking past the surface, the phone uses HTC Sense, which is much friendlier than stock Android. I really like what the company has done with Sense; the downside is that you’ll have to wait a little longer for Android updates due to the customizations.

The camera took decent videos and pictures. I wasn’t expecting too much in this department. HTC hasn’t been the best when it comes to image quality and there doesn’t seem to be much of an improvement (keep in mind that I only played with the device for a few minutes).

Compared to Samsung Galaxy S — which I’ll be writing about in a few minutes — I preferred the Evo 4G’s screen size and interface. The company also has a strong track record with Android, whereas Samsung does not. Anyway, enjoy the rest of the photos!

  1. I have been looking at this phone for a while. I dig the kick stand it has. I would love to have this phone but I just renewed my contract with AT&T 2 days ago when I bought a new phone for someone else on my plan. They wanted the white Bold 9000, but didn't want to pay the nearly $500 it was going to cost.
