    Fun note, there is a 3D EVO LTE in there, also one without the red on the kickstand at 1:30, which I really like. Might have some sanding to do...

    Nice vid, the silver one for sure. The red stripe looks like crap.

    I like that silver kickstand trim for sure. I was wondering why they did not just match the silver or metal trim bazel around the phone with the kickstand.

    it only works with another HDVoice enabled device... so.. only LTevo has that feature! only Sprint has it, for now...

    I wounder.. if it also requires fast Data speeds too!
    i remember reading that it does!! need 4G or wifi..

    As in, the call will have to be made over wifi (or 4G) to be HD? Interesting.

    Came across some nice side by side display comparison pictures of recent Displays including the One-X

    I'm running on the assumption that we are getting the exact same display panel as the One-X (although there could always be variations and different suppliers).

    I've thought from the beginning the One-X SLCD2 panel they have has had a slight warm color temperature tint to it. This shows that pretty well. However, I don't think it is too warm. Though it remains to be seen in hand.

    It looks somewhere in the spectrum of natural to me. Better than washed out cold white, and much better than blue white tint with 'screen door effect'. Natural colors tend to be better on the eyes than blown out exaggerated colors in my opinion.

    Can't wait to see it in person

    I was confused. At some points the HTC looked nearly white while the Nokia looked blue. Then the HTC looked yellow while the Nokia looked mostly white. Then around 2:42 they are both on axis to the camera, and the HTC looked better to me.

    Maybe the illuminated displays and that eerie bright table threw the sensor off in the camera that he used to make the video?

    Yeah, the overall light condition wasn't the best.

    If you look at the background, which appears to be a white table illuminated by tungsten lighting, the video camera appears to show it as white at the beginning, which means the video cam is white balancing on the table, but toward the middle, the table starts appearing a lot warmer in color temp, which means that the camera decided to choose something else as the basis for white balance. That will definitely cause the changes in tint in the phones' display as seen by the video camera.

    OK, many thanks! I thought that table was illuminated but then I started to question it.

    And tungsten lighting certainly explains it.

    I'm thinking our display will be just fine. I had the exact same feelings throughout the video Early but further throughout I realized that El Tevo looked much more natural as opposed to the Lumia with the blue tint that I hate so much. Pertaining to the side by side posted by Pyro, I feel comfortable saying that the One X screen definitely looks the best there. It's best competition is the iPhone 4 which has a screen much smaller so it's beautiful to see that we win on both fronts along with size and resolution.

    Engadget just posted their review of the LTEvo, based on their test drive with the device in New Orleans. You can read it here:

    HTC EVO 4G LTE for Sprint review -- Engadget

    Overall they really liked it, but I have a few quibbles with the review. One, they make a big stink about the phone not being a world phone (i.e., no GSM radios). Seriously? Having dual radios is a feature, not a requirement. It's a CDMA phone, you accept that it won't run on a GSM network unless it's a phone like the Moto Photon, which was specifically advertised as a world phone. Good lord. I wonder if they complained as heavily about the CDMA iPhone not being a world phone? :rolleyes:

    Two, for some reason they're annoyed that the LTE SIM is integrated into the phone and not user accessible. Is this really a big deal? Last I knew, the various carriers in the US do not operate compatible LTE networks. Will people be able to buy a Verizon phone and slap a Sprint LTE SIM in it (or vise versa)? I'm guessing not, so who cares if the user can't get to the SIM? That's like complaining that the radios are non-user accessible. (Someone correct me if I'm wrong on this, and this really is a big deal for some reason, I'd like to know).
