HTC Evo 4G: Review

HTC has surely made its presence felt this year by releasing a few good phones such as the One X, One V and the Evo 4G. The last Evo installment was called Evo 3D and gained popularity among people who prefer high specs with a hint of 3D. This year, HTC has come out with Evo 4G LTE for Sprint, in spite of the fact that Sprint doesn’t support 4G as of now.

The Evo 4G is powered by a dual core Snapdragon chip clocked at 1.5 GHz, running ICS. Thanks to the extra thin bevel, HTC has managed to squeeze in a 4.7 inch LCD screen. The screen looks gorgeous with a 312 ppi density, almost at par with the iPhone 4S. The display is able to produce rich and brilliant colors, without any visible differentiation between pixels. The battery HTC has supplied with the device is a 2000 mAh, which is bigger than most Android phones out there, therefore providing a more than decent battery life to the phone.

The phone has a plastic back, and a kickstand, just like the earlier Evo phones. The kickstand comes in handy when you’re watching videos on your phone. The plastic body has helped make the phone lightweight, which is an added benefit. One of the best parts of the phone is its camera. It can shoot 8 megapixel photos and record videos in 1080p, with additional abilities such as HDR and panorama.

HTC has employed Sense 4.0 in this phone, just like the One X. With this new version of Sense, HTC has taken a step in the right direction by making the UI lighter and faster. The useless fluff has been removed, and Sense 4.0 has blended with the stock UI beautifully.

In short, although Evo 4G doesn’t offer anything extraordinary, it is a solid product from HTC, with a great performance.
