Thumbs up [Official] Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE Pre-release thread - Sprint official launch is Saturday, June 2

Welcome to the official HTC One X pre-release thread for the Sprint... EVO One (we think).

By members' request we've moved a few things around, and did a blending.

Latest rumor seems to be a June 6 release date, hopefully we'll hear the dates and details at the upcoming announcement April 4th.

Hopefully not with that battery. 1800mh non-removable. That is an utter failure. If your going to have a non-removable battery it needs to be 3000+ size like the razor maxx.

Of course the specs here don't mention LTE. Maybe they will add a larger battery or at least make it removable for the LTE versions.

You can probably expect the next EVO to have those or similar specs but Sprint won't get that exact phone, no.

Default HTC One for Sprint

There's a rumor that HTC will release a variant of the HTC One (aka Endeavor and Edge) for Sprint, maybe in June or July.

Also HTC One does not have a removable battery. How do you pull the battery when all else fails?

Yeah there's a few phones that don't have a removable battery there's usually a switch you can select to kill the power.

I'm more concerned with no SD card.

According to that article, the T-mobile version will have quadcore and stock Android? That's insane.

Ehh, it'll never be an iDevice. Those things aren't exactly deal breakers. If it bothers you that much, don't buy it. It's that simple. These new HTC branded devices are going to set a standard going forward for HTC, and honestly I'm impressed with what they are doing.

Don't get me wrong, most of the device looks amazing, but honestly those two things are definitely a step in the wrong direction, IMO. For people that like to flash different ROMs often and things of that nature an SD card comes in extremely handy. I would consider it a deal breaker, otherwise I would be drooling over the impending Galaxy Nexus on Sprint.

I flash tons of ROMs, but I still don't see a need for an SD card for anything besides pictures. For all storage needs, you can use a PC to backup your data. Nandroid backups and the like.

Default HTC One X gimped for Sprint?

First, here is a cool article about the materials and processes used to make the new One series phones:
HTC's dark materials: hands-on photos with the gray One S, black One X | The Verge

Second, here is some info about the One X:
One X Specs, Reviews, & Latest News | HTC | The Verge

I would love this phone, but there are two versions, and with Sprint getting LTE we are supposedly getting the gimped version (dual-core vs. quad-core) because Nvidia's Tegra 3 doesn't play nice with LTE apparently...

Although the gap between the Tegra 3 and the Snapdragon S4 appear to be very small according to Anandtech, Tegra 3 gets all the exlusive crap because, well, it's Nvidia...:
http://www.anandtech.com/show/5563/qualcomms-snapdragon-s4-krait-vs-nvidias-tegra-3

With all of that said, if Sprint only gets the LTE version then the 4G on this phone will be useless for me since areas with WiMAX are low on priority for the network change.

It's not gimped. That S4 Krait puts out tons of power for a next gen dual-core. I don't care about amount of cores. From everything I have read, I would actually prefer the S4 over T3. Mostly because of the energy savings and the ability of having the radios built into the die.

True. In addition, cores don't mean everything. The dual core Snapdragon S4 is based on 28nm, A15 architecture, compared to the A9 architecture of the Tegra3 quad core. In most cases, the S4 dual core actually outperforms the quad core. Its anything but "gimped."

Two comparisons:

I saw the note in Bestbuy the other day and I must say that is the nicest screen I have seen on a device.(phone/tab). Sprint need to bring the HTC ONE X and S to their sprint customers, why limit yourself.?

If that was the case than areas like Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Chicago, Baltimore, And San Fran wouldn't be the first areas to get it, but they are. Also all the areas inline for the second round are all Wimax areas...

It would be nice to bump the specs up, add a kickstand, and get a bigger battery. Because its an EVO, they might put some sort of special feature on it.

hmmm..... there seems to be something not being used in these benchmarks.
i can understand how the better smaller size build will help the S4...

but 4 cores must have some advantages.

the tegra3 must have been rushed out.. and was not fully optimized.
the next company that releases a 4-core cpu that utilizes the S4's tech would be amazing.

The bigger difference is the architecture used. The tegra 3 uses A9, while the S4 uses A15.

why does 4 cores have to be better? i'd rather have two really strong cores then 4 mediocre cores... 2 cores could easily beat 4 cores. honestly i'd rather have the s4 over t3 any day, the t3 gets exclusive nvidia zone crap but if the games are successful they always come to the rest of the android ecosystem too. im not worried

Hey quick question, you referenced radios being built in, and I recall someone on this board talking about newer phones building in the 4G into the 3G chip to save room and power. Is that what you're talking about?

Yeah, that's what I'm talking about. On the SoC, you'll have CPU/GPU/Radios all built on the same board. They say it saves tons of power, but we'll have to wait and see for real-life performance first. Logically, it should be really awesome.

Is this all true about the radios?

In the past, that's been claimed often, but what's really built-in to the SoCs are the _modems_ and then the radio chips are separate. Pretty common for the Qualcomms to have always included the full modem set when others did not.

Not sure here, but I'd bet that's how it is. Radio chips are expensive - the S3 in the 3D has modem control for both GSM and CDMA, but only a CDMA radio chip is included in the phone, as one example.

Edit and PS - Just checked, yep, it's just the modems.

Also the Krait is not an A15. Just as the S3 compared to a Cortex A8 or A9, the S4 compares to a Cortex A15. The S4 continues the tradition of allowing asynchronous clocks for each core, something I personally prefer quite a bit.

Info here, warning, PDF download required from here - http://www.qualcomm.com/media/documents/snapdragon-s4-processors-system-chip-solutions-new-mobile-age

Tough call between the Tegra 3 and the S4, but Snapdragons have been good to me, and this is the first full revamp of the Snapdragon, so I have high hopes for it.

Hum, you may be right about that EM. Sorry for the incorrect info. One of the reviews i posted up top though, clearly states A15 architecture in the the S4.

Yep, Briefmobile said that. Not surprising, as blogs constantly claim that Snapdrragons have been Cortex-based.

Qualcomm vs ARM is like AMD vs Intel. Similar, same instruction sets, but not the same.

I have been debating between this and the Nexus and I'm 99% sure the HTC ONE X will be my next phone. Plus I have a sweet spot for HTC phones.

Thumbs up [Official] Sprint HTC One X Pre-release thread

Sprint maybe receiving the One X! It's a rumor, but in the past Sprint has typically gotten high end phone from HTC. I just wish we had a Quad Core! If true that is!

HTC One X For Sprint Details Surface, Rumored To Be Codenamed 'Jet' And Possibly Arriving In June

Laugh Have you seen this?? Supposedly coming to Sprint. Check it out.

Hey, Guys...

HTC EVO successor to "Jet" onto the scene June 10th. If this happens to be true - I know many of you, including myself will have to get this super (bad boy) device.

I guess HTC and Sprint was reading our minds - huh? We would love hear your thoughts on this.

One more thing, I really think that Sprint should consider keeping the EVO Brand Name. HTC EVO One X - sounds pretty good to me. There are so many awesome devices now-a-days to choose from. Link below.

It'll come down to the bootloader for a lot of people. HTC needs to wise up that we want to simply issue the "fastboot oem unlock" command and be done with it, like a Nexus.

Root isn't for everyone - but the easier and safer it is, the more people will get on board, and earlier. Always attractive to the dev community, imo.

I wonder if the new codename HTC Jet (was Jewel?) is a take off from the HTC Supersonic aka Evo 4G?

I agree with you! I've been out of my contract for the past 2yrs now! I've been patient and waiting...cause I felt like the Evo 3D was a waste of time (load of malarkey)!

I'm the same way when it comes down to new phone, but nothing caught my eye to upgrade beside this phone!

I have to disagree. That name just is too damn long. They need to simplify it. Something like EVO X HD or the like would be much better.

Does anyone know if the HTC One has an FM transmitter to play tunes straight to the radio? I really wish the 3VO had this feature.
