    Yes it does and it works amazingly well, it wants to stare you down for 30 seconds while you set it up but after that it is instant upon unlock, I barely even see my face on the screen its so quick!
    Loving this feature!

    Also, a side note, typing on forums now has no lag!!! (Old og evo problem)

    Is there any stock setting that I can change the battery bar to a percentage?

    Face unlock is a security feature, you can set your face to unlock the phone. This is not as secure as a pin or alphanumeric password.

    The ppi is still lower on this phone than the iPhone 4 or 4S, but because it's a larger size screen it looks more impressive. However, for my money nothing beats the retina display on the new iPad. Again, lower ppi but the size of it makes it look so impressive.

    And while I love this screen, if you hold it up against a 4S and take screen size into account, one does not trounce the other. They're very close in quality.

    I'm pretty much speechless. This phone takes a dump on any phone I have ever owned and all phones that are out on the market right now. This includes the One X because it has a dedicated camera button and micro sd support. Looking at pictures on the internet, you may prefer the design of the One X like I did. In person it's a whole different story. When the BB rep opened up the box and pulled it out, I said "holy ****" to my self. The screen is so gorgeous. The thinness and strip of brushed aluminum around the sides of the phone screams class and sexy. The phone is very light but still feels expensive. +397267632 for the included kickstand, and the glossy plastic does not look bad in person. In fact it makes the phone stand out from others. This may seem trivial to others, but I like the glossy back because I can tell how the phone is oriented in my pocket before pulling it out.

    It was my opinion... Never said it was backed by facts..to me this is a lot nicer.. I never got a single screen compliment when I had the iPhone for a week..I've had phone 2 days and have gotten countless compliments...just my opinion..didn't mean it to offend anyone

    the evo3d cord is a tad longer I compared the two..only reason I noticed this is bc I set my phone on my dresser to charge..the 3vo reached halfway up the dresser when plugged in and the LTevo made it about a quarter of the way..if not for that I would have never noticed lol




    The face unlock is pretty cool.. I've already tested it with a bunch of my friends hasn't failed me yet! Haha

    Thanks I didnt see it any where on here and used it before on my Razr Maxx that i sold and i really liked it... also if it wont find you face will it go into the pattern lock like my Maxx did?... Some times its not safe trying to hold it up in the car to see my face while driving just to make a phone call.

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news but I think it's only after the NV tower upgrades that you will see this enhanced 3g performance.

    Here I am.
    Somebody had to do this. I guess I'll be the one.
    19 pages of tapatalk and not one benchmark screenshot?
    I'd like to think I have some competition out there...
    Speed tests? Lte is no faster than HSPA+42, is it?
    (I don't know what either means).

    Battery?
    Display?
    Looks?

    I don't know...
    Sammy or HTC. Hmmm.

    I know you guys have a bad phone.
    But some of the posts I get a tickle from.

    Baddest on the planet?
    Takes a dump on my phone?

    Someone even compared it to an iPhone?? Why?
    That would make any Android owner proud, I reckon.

    I do apologize.
    I'm just a little antagonistic tonight because I finally got the nerve to flash my first ROM after about 12 hours of trying to fix the display on the PC, which I finally did (thanx again, Tresezk).
    But now the stupid thing has slowed to a crawl and "cannot load plug-ins".

    I don't trust it to flash Darkside Evolution ICS or anything else onto my phone now.
    I was so close to being one of those that have, after messing with this PC for so long, for not.

    My dog hates me.
    I haven't eaten anything or brushed my hair.

    I'm frustrated and I'm tired.

    I thought this was supposed to be fun.:thinking:

    found this interesting, not sure if it's been mentioned but i say it anyway...

    beats audio works over Bluetooth streaming in case anyone is interested. i use my phone to play pandora via bluetooth in my truck and i noticed that the beats audio logo appeared on my phone while doing so. i can tell a SLIGHT difference between it on and off. i was kinda hoping beats would have a chrystalizer effect to it but it seems it only makes the bass a tad bit punchier.

    anywho. loving my phone!

    Hate to disagree with this, but when I added a second card to mine, it came up as /sdcard2. I'm guessing it's taking the name from whatever volume name was already on the card when you put it in. I didn't reformat the one I put in, so I don't know what it would come up as if you did that, but I wanted people to know it might come up as something different. In other words ... YMMV. :)

    I came to Dallas from Phoenix yesterday. The phone won't update for the time zone change. I updated PRL and profile several times as well as restart. Nothing is doing it.

    No offense taken. I just happen to have a 4S, LTEvo, and new iPad at the moment so I can look at all three side by side. I know there's not much love for Apple on these boards, but their retina display screens really are impressive, as is the screen on the LTEvo. In this case I'd say it's not a contest because if you're looking for a good screen, you can get any of these devices and have a great display to look at.

    If this was answered, I missed seeing it. I'm not aware of a stock setting that does that, that's why I use an app called Battery Indicator Pro by Darshan Computing. I think I paid for it but they have a free version, just leave off the "Pro" in your search and you'll find it. There are probably other apps that do the same thing.

    It puts a little number up in the upper left of your screen showing the percentage left. You can see it in my screenshot here in the screenshots thread: http://androidforums.com/htc-evo-4g-lte/555013-htc-evo-4g-lte-screen-scene.html#post4436719

    My phone got confused about the time yesterday too so I turned off automatic time zone for now. I remember reading a few other posts about this yesterday but I don't remember the thread.

    **Apparently if you update your PRL &/or profile (I don't know if it's both or just one that does it), LTE will turn back on (I read that here somewhere and it happened to me too) so make sure you turn that back off if you don't want it on right now.

    Haven't seen anyone mention the usage menu. Settings-Mobile Network-Usage.
    Very informative and interesting to see.

    Only problem I've noticed so far is my WiFi disconnecting and reconnecting constantly. I have had plenty of other phones and devices connected to it and have never had this problem. It's really killing my battery while I'm at home.
