Smile Do you like the 'EVO 4G LTE' device?

Just as the topic says...

A simple question - just choose one of the poll options, and explain why. No bashing a person reason(s) why they choose to like or dislike the device.

To each their own. Your preference does matter.

No doubt that my vote was "yes" - I have loved this device the moment it was announced. It seems that Sprint had listen to our cries and decide to give its customers what they truly need -- an awesome phone. I'm sure many people are happy with Sprint's announcement, as well as there are those who aren't so 'thrill' about not getting the exact duplicate of the HTC One X.

Nevertheless, this phone (when I get it) will definitely be a keeper for the next two years - unless there is a another EVO device (just as mind-blowing) that comes out before then.

i love this phone because of the power packing combo it brings to the table!

its got a LOT of firsts:
1. SLCD2 Dispaly
2. image sense camera
3. HD voice Chat
4. the s4 CPU

that alone would make an amazing phone, but ontop of that, sprint listened to EVERYTHING we wanted. with the above specs we ALSO get, a kickstand, a dedicated camera button (something i've ALWAYS wanted but never had), NFC, big battery, micro SD card slot ONTOP of 16gb storage (80gb people!!! 80 possible gigs)

i mean good god man! i dont wanna know how much this costs to make, im just gonna be ignorant and steal this bad boy from sprint for $200. this is a real winner here, without a doubt

I love it, especially the micro SD slot, camera button, HD voice, the kickstand and only for $200. Sprint hits a homerun with this phone.

I don't like it, I LOVE it.

Why you ask? IMHO, I think it's an true Evolution from the previous iterations of the Evo. HTC was able to bring back the kickstand from the 4G, incorporate a dedicated camera button not unlike the 3D, address the power issues with the 2000mAh battery and finally incorporating all of this into a cutting edge phone with the latest technology. I for one am really looking forward to seeing the real world usage on one of the first phones using 28nm process.

I love the internals and although I'm not crazy about the two tone back, I have come to the conclusion this is the EVO line and not the ONE X line of phones.

It looks great to me. I've read a lot of negative comments about how it looks, but I don't think it's ugly at all. A little different, but not ugly. Anyway, who looks at the back of their phone? And on top of everything else, they brought the kickstand back to the Evo line. Gotta love it!

I'm thinking the real reason why we have a two-tone glossy-matte back finish is because having two drastically different textures was a better design choice than having two close, but not the same matte finishes.

To explain: The LTEVO is made with an aluminum unibody, and the bottom matte part is a matte machine-finished aluminum metal. The top glossy part is plastic--as a requirement, because the 3G/LTE/BT/NFC antennas are all located there. I would bet money that it is nigh impossible to get a matte plastic finish that matches a matte metal finish--that they would be close, but be obviously slightly off matte finishes. Slightly off is frequently more bothersome to the eye than an obvious and stark contrast.

When given the choice to go slightly off (see the old HTC Sensation for example) two tones, or go to a noticable contrast two-tones, i.e., glossy vs. matte, it looks like they went with the latter.

The HTC One X avoids this altogether with an RF-friendly all polymer body.

If this had been the successor to the original EVO, I would have upgraded without hesitation. Since it wasn't, I opted for the MoPho (especially after the kickstand was confirmed) and ended up loving the phone as well as Motorola's accessories in comparison to all my past HTC devices (Mogul, Touch Pro, EVO 4G). Because of that, for the first time, I'm not planning on upgrading on a launch date until it's been determined and/or announced that Motorola will have another Android Superphone.

I don't really like the look. I really like whats inside the phone. It pretty much has what I need. I just hope Sprint doesn't take up most of the internal memory. With all that memory, and all this phone can do, I don't mind holding on to this phone for two years.

The more I watch the video of how the device was design and created, I think the top glossy cover and kickstand might be replaceable and a accessorize feature. In the video you can see the white top sitting on one of the tables not to mention the silver kickstand on one of the device. If this possible, it just might seal the deal for me.

+1

No previous HTC/EVO phones here, just another satisfied MO PHO'ER.

Admittedly, the EVO 4G LTE specs are a bit better than the MO PHO, it's not enough for me to jump on the LTEVO EXPRESS.

Three things could change my mind,namely:

1) If the EVO 4G LTE were to have the accessories/docking options as the MOTO RAZR/PHOTON/BIONIC/ATRIX, I'll give this phone a second look.

2) Battery life proves to be acceptable(10-12 HRS of light-moderate use).

3) 4G LTE comes earlier than expected to my area,(more wishful thinking) as I'm in a 4G WIMAX area.Otherwise,no need to pick up any phone w/LTE in the immediate future.

the fact that you have WiMax is a good indicator you will get LTE sooner rather then later. they always start deployement in their biggest markets and work their way down... important cities got WiMax first and important cities will get LTE first...

Dallas was in wave one for WiMax and again is in wave one for LTE

I've heard rumors that there is the possibility of another EVO 'family member' may very well be coming aboard. Hmm, I wonder who could that be. Anyway, keep in mind that these are only rumors, or what someone might call..wishful thinking.. Nothing has been confirmed about this -- yet.

Hint: I can play video in 3D. Checkout the promo video below. What do you think - look @ the two(2) devices shown.

I think someone had mentioned that HTC had an official answer about the rumored 3D version and said that it was just a prototype because they were initially thinking of keeping the 3D w/ the LTEvo, but decided not to. Quite honestly, if it was 3D, I wouldn't consider it.

This is what I have been holding out for. But the only way I'll buy it is if it gets root, which I'm sure it will. I have loved my evo for over a year now. Getting an evo with a dual core processor in it will be sick. Oh yeah and cm9. So a recapp, new evo, dual core processor, rooted with ics. Yeah son I'll be all over that one!

sent from my evo 4g running a bunch of awesome mods developed by some real sweet devs.

Accessories for the One X made me take a step back in the "like" department for this phone. I wish I could say it wasn't a "big deal" for me, but now that I've experienced Motorola's accessories...not sure I can go backwards in that department. And for those saying, "just use universal"...not the same thing either. Motorola just found a way to really focus on productivity and use, rather than making their accessories look "pretty."

OG EVO owner since it dropped June 4th 2010. I've been tempted by other devices 3VO, Mopho, E4GT. Finally, what I like most about LTEVO is this device with out question has me ready to dive in "Water is just fine, jump on in!" I like also how this just screams high end device. Brushed aluminum camera button, brushed aluminum band around the out side. Beautiful Two tone matte rubberized black with polished black polycarbonate top. The ever present EVO Red ring around the camera lens. Tasteful full red band and kickstand. IMHO this thing looks almost too good for a protective case. To me this screams high class and high end device. Mean looking and graceful at the same time. I won't get started on the spec's ROFL.

The specs on this phone are amazing, and what's better is that it's all gonna be for only $200!

My thoughts exactly... The EVO 4G LTE wasn't just a rush product, it was a well made device. The video in one of my posts - prove that.

I'm quite sure that when we actually see it, it will look much better in person than on any video. Haha.

I need this phone like yesterday, too bad I have to wait until my upgrade eligibility takes effect.

I also completely agree!

When I upgraded from my HTC Hero last summer, I had the opportunity to get either an EVO or EVO 3D.

I chose the EVO, because, honesty, I have absolutely no use for a 3D camera in my phone. While I do shoot video as a hobby and do work sometimes on video crews, I have never shot video with my phone. I also rarely shoot still photos with my phone, so the 3D is completely useless for me.

My opinion, the 3D is just a marketing gemic, and honestly, I am glad to see that the developers of the LTEVO did not waste their time on 3D, and instead increased the onboard memory, added the LTE and improved the camera.

While I love my EVO, the increased onboard memory, and the LTE might tempt me to upgrade early.

Quick question: is the little opening at the bottom of the phone the back speaker?

This is marginally off topic, but I think the 3evo gets an undeserved bad rep. It seems people thought the 3D on the phone was holding it back, which was so clearly not the case. Consider it's distant sibling, the Sensation, which only held a 3 megapixel advantage over it. Other than that, the 3evo had a larger battery, more RAM/ROM, was overall faster and of course had added 3D capabilities in screen and cameras, all at the same price. Had El Tevo included 3D, I don't think they would have sacrificed other areas.

Yea, so many people got tunnel vision with the 3D aspect and based the phone purely on 3D capabilities, and not the other great features the phone had, which, at the time, were ahead of the class. It really surprised me how blind people could be.

If it is, this will be the beefiest speaker we've ever seen on an Evo. Those of you who had the OG Evo can attest the speaker was quite good, but this speaker looks to be really, really good.

This definitely makes me pretty excited. Back when the EVO 4G was out, I wanted to get it, but I had no want to pay an extra 10 bucks to my father for the 4G that wasn't even in WI. Now with all smartphones needed 10 extra bucks for 'Premium Data', No reason for me to pass this up at all. The new HTC Sense looks amazing compared to TouchWiz, I just can't wait to get my hands on this! Too bad my upgrade is in September, but I definitely plan on waiting for this one without a doubt. Sammy won't really wow me this year with the SGSIII plus LG and Moto are kinda... Lackluster to me. I gotta grab this phone definitely!

I'm 99% sure that the speaker is the "Slit directly above where you pointed to, it's about an inch in width

^..And that you are.

P.s. I remember reading somewhere, that the back cover on the One X's, will now have holes where the speaker is suppose to be, for better sound quality.

Well... I'm hoping this speaker performs at least as well as the OG Evo. The Evo 3D speaker is pretty weak and tinny.

In other news, I just did the math on the pixel density (this might be published somewhere, but it was quicker to just derive it), and it's 312ppi. Retina by Apple's standard, and it's not half-assed with PenTile.

Unfortunately, Sprint's version (Evo 4G LTE) back cover will look completely different. I kinda prefer how the One X back cover looks. And another thing I love about the One X, is the curve shape of the device.

Your math is good! HTC also has that info there on their site, I'm not quick on the math as you .

I was thinking now that LTEvo as a dedicated shutter button, it's perfect when your recording just keep your hand on top and hit the shutter! It's probably a few seconds of a difference, but I think it sweet!

in general.. i dont like the speakerphone in the back... I watch vids on the front, but the sound goes out the back???


if you are correct.. and that was the speaker on the bottom side...
and I was playing a game.. my hand/palm would totally block the speaker.



i would like to see them put the speakers on the front...
maybe at the bottom (front screen)... so that you dont accident put hat to your ear.

Although, one thing I can say, dan, is the rear speaker when using the kickstand does reverberate nicely off the surface of a table when using the kickstand and watching a movie or video. The photon speaker is in a similar place and the sound is great.

Not necessarily. There can be an amplification effect from tables/surfaces that can result in greater sound than just listening to it from the direction of the speaker.

I'll also note The Verge's review of the HTC One X:

Quote:
The physical details of this phone are exquisite, and it's clear that HTC's designers fussed over each and every one of them at length. Take the glass covering the display, for instance: it technically has a bezel, but it's black, glossy, contoured, and only about a millimeter thick; in other words, you can't see it unless you're really looking for it. The earpiece and loudspeaker grilles are microscopic — laser drilled, I'm assuming — and are so well-integrated that you can't feel them if you run your finger over them. The camera, which is surrounded by an attractive matte silver ring, is raised just enough so that the loudspeaker picks up a "megaphone effect" when you've got the phone sitting on a table; furthermore, the design prevents the camera lens (which is flush with the top of the ring) from getting scratched this way.

For most audiophile systems, Dan is right. For a phone, we'll see. The speaker aperture forms a distinct type of horn making it a compression driver. A megaphone is a simple horn. Horns increase overall volume but create inaccuracies at various frequencies that can be predicted easily by the horn geometry.

But I don't think that we're starting with a highly accurate speaker to begin with.

In the end, all we care about is if it's good enough to sound decent. That's the big challenge for any phone.

My mileage was great voice performance on my Evo on the kickstand, and not great on my 3vo compared to that regardless of how I positioned it. OK, but not great. Music lovers may have other opinions. (And there was a lot of varying mileage on both phones, those were just how it worked for me.)

I would like an excellent sounding phone on a kickstand, but I will gladly settle for as good as my Evo.

Just 2 cents.

Strangely enough, it doesn't. I listen to NBA games on my phone, when I'm out and don't want to bother watching the stream through the browser. There have been a few occasions where I thought turning the phone around and looking at the back cover would make for better sound, but I found that cupping the back of the phone near the speaker had a better result, than actually turning the phone around.

Although, I obviously can't tell if it will be the same for the LTEvo.

the quote you have here.. is about the OneX... the EVO 4G LTE is different.

OneX's backspeaker is on the back to the right side.
LTevo is on the back towards the bottom.

just guessing by what I see... when the LTevo is laying down.. the camera lens will lift the top part... and making the speaker hole more covered by the table surface.
