Criteria Comments Rating
  • Reception and call quality No dropped calls, quality was very clear on both sides great!
  • Display Amazing clarity! Vibrant colors, easy to read great!
  • Battery life Great so far. Dadios set to CDMA only and I connect via wifi where possible. good
  • Camera Still learning. FAST response and nice pictures. good
  • Ease of use ICS/Android 4.0.3 is nice, HTC Sense 4.0 is too. Sense still has some glitches here and there, in my opinion great!
  • Design and form factor I like it. Well designed and nice form factor. The glossy top panel is a non-issue since I use a TPU case. Kickstand is perfect! great!
  • Portability (size / weight) BIG, thin, light, slippery are a few word I would use to describe. Coming from OG EVO this is perfect for me. great!
  • Media support Still learning the full capabilities. It has been able to handle what I need (very basic though) good
  • Durability So far, so good. No drops or issues to fully report. good
  • Ecosystem (apps, accessories, etc.) [EDIT 6/14/12] Items are arriving slowly but surely and they are pretty good (so far). good
Detailed review
Having owned the OG EVO for the past two years I found that it was growing long in the tooth. I am a LONG time Sprint user/customer and will continue to be. I am not in a 4G area (WiMAX or future LTE) and therefore I have always used 3G and WiFi. For my use and needs Sprint works for me.
