  • Reception and call quality Calls are clear and I rarely have any issues. good
  • Display So, yes. The display is the centerpiece of this phone. Its stunning. Clear and bright. And huge. great!
  • Battery life The battery is OK. It Usually lasts a day but sometimes with more than normal usage it won't make it. But that is to be expected I guess. so-so
  • Camera This camera is awesome! I don't know what more to say. great!
  • Ease of use I mean, its Android. So take that for what it is. Easier than Blackberry not as easy as iPhone. good
  • Design and form factor I stopped using cases so I cold admire this phone in all its beauty. great!
  • Portability (size / weight) Suprisingly this phone is both lightweight and feels solid. I liked the feel better than that of other phones in its class. Size is also fine. great!
  • Media support Haven't come across anything I can't play. great!
  • Durability AWESOME! Typical HTC quality. great!
  • Ecosystem (apps, accessories, etc.) Again, its Android. Better than Blackberry not as good is iPhone. good
Detailed review
After having the HTC Hero for a month I returned it. The build was awesome but the OS was horrible. So I ventured into other phones. Long story short, when I saw the HTC Evo 4G LTE I saw the screen and the specs and the decision was made. (of course I looked at the Galaxy Nexus and SIII) This phone is awesome. The screen is absolutely stunning. The Speed is light years beyond what the old Hero was. Admittedly I had to kick the Sense launcher to the curb in favor of another option, but thats only a minor scratch and doesn't affect my rating. I am even close to reaching my storage limit. The build quality is TOP NOTCH. This thing just FEELS great and balanced. Even the kickstand comes in handy as I use this phone as my alarm clock. I would recommend this phone for anyone searching for an Android phone.

If your network mode(under mobile network in settings) is still set at LTE/CDMA, that will drain your battery. CDMA mode only will easily get me through a day of heavy usage. Nice review.

Thank you for the tip! I will try it immediately!!!! You know, I actually looked at that setting but I figured since I didn't have LTE in my area that the phone would switch by itself. I am not sure why I thought that there would be some intelligent switching there. Thank you!!!
