Review: HTC Evo 4G : Is It Your Type? (Phone Scoop)
Phonescoop reviewed the EVO today
It's nice to see/hear a totally unbiased review. (Not saying that any other particular review was biased one way or another, this one just seemed balanced.) A few criticisms seemed to lean to the picky side, but also worth noting.
Keep hearing good and bad things about the battery life...getting a little worried
It will prolly be worse than anything you have ever used. That is not a joke either.
I get a good days use out of it, playing poker and all throughout.
I don't get why EVERY review is saying mini HDMI. Are we all ordering the wrong cable? lol
You typed what I was thinking
Mini and micro HDMI definitely are not the same. Micro (Type D) is smaller than mini (Type C), but both were designed for handheld portable electronics with most pre-Evo devices using Type C.
If someone who has one can comment on the measurement width, we can clear this up. Micro (Type D) is 6.4mm x 2.8mm which is approximately half the size of Mini Type D at 10.42mm x 2.42. Not many devices have the new Micro so Evo could be among the first to use it if it has it. Size-wise it's similar to micro-USB.
all his nitpicking made me wanna punch a baby. i thought the video he took of the pool was pretty good, but he thought it was terrible. i thought he was gonna rip the EVO a new one in his "verdict" or "summary" section, but he surprised me by saying he liked it for the most part.
I didnt get thru the whole review, BUT right off the bat I could tell that the EVO just wasnt the phone for the reviewer.
Its kinda hard to give an unglaring review, when right off the bat you want to mention how you dont like capacitive buttons, and want actual hardware on there.
Not saying the review is all bad...but once the reviewer gave their opinion first just on the look...I knew they wouldnt like the phone that much. Yes, to some people its still about the look and not the technology.
And battery life I am not worried about at all...if you know you are not in a 4G area, or just outside of one, why would you leave the 4G radio on?
I'm sure all the people's phone numbers that he shows in the video really appreciate all the new people they are meeting...
you're a little late lol posted this hours before. there's an official review thread here
