The first WiMAX phone in the U.S. is a terrific platform for streaming media and Web browsing, and it gets your laptop online with Sprint's 4G network. Just keep an eye out for an outlet when you're only using 4G. quote

That said, this is truly one of the best smartphones ever made, and even spotty 4G -- a reality of a young technology that's going to take years to properly build out -- probably won't do much to hamper your enjoyment of this thing.

The speedy HTC EVO 4G packs in some powerful specs and a variety of multimedia features into a stylish, minimalist design, but not everybody will get to enjoy one of its best features--4G connectivity.

The HTC Evo 4G is easily Sprint's best smartphone and one of today's top Android devices. It also shows the promise of 4G, which will grow as Sprint's WiMax network expands, but until there's broader 4G coverage, it's hard to agree with the mandatory premium data add-on fee.

It doesn’t matter how awesome it is to browse the Internet on a 4.3-inch screen or do front-facing video calls if the phone’s battery can’t make it through the day.

If you're in a strong WiMAX coverage area, the HTC Evo 4G is a no-brainer. ... If coverage is more spotty, as it is in my area, the Evo 4G is still a great choice, ... but that monthly bill is going to be a bitter pill you'll have to swallow to enjoy the benefits this phone offers.

The Sprint HTC Evo 4G is the kind of Android phone that will probably be the talk of the town even after the next iPhone launches. That should say a lot about Evo’s badass-ness.

Well I, like millions of other people, had an iPhone. And with that iPhone, like hundreds of thousands (?) of other people in Chicago and all across the country, I was stuck with AT&T to provide my mobile "service." And you can probably guess what I thought. When you have a great...

I've had the phone for about a week and used with the stock rom. This would be my 3rd Android phone (G1, Sprint Hero, EVO). My initial summary was that it was much faster than the Hero. Everything loaded with lag. But the major drawback was the battery life. With mild use (a few texts, calls...

This phone was a substantial upgrade over the iPhone 3G. The form factor is large but the benefits of the screen and the solid feel of the device are very welcomed. The official Froyo update from HTC eliminated the few small issues that I had with the device in the first few months leaving me...

I freaking love this phone. The worst thing about it is the battery life (which is horrible), but once you accept that and keep a charger nearby at all times, it's basically like having the worlds best mini-computer in your pocket.

I got this phone from my job, and thank god i didn't pay for it or I would be pissed. I normally love HTC hardware but this is crap. just a few months into having this phone and the plastic around the glass is chipped, and I have never even dropped this phone. add that to the uninstallable bloat...
