Engadget Summary

Let's not mince words here: The EVO 4G LTE is a great phone in search of a network. Yes, it's thin, light, beautifully made and amazingly fast, with a gorgeous screen and a remarkable camera. Sense 4 enhances Ice Cream Sandwich without diluting the user experience. As such, it absolutely lives up to its EVO namesake. In fact, we dare say that it's the best Android smartphone you can get on the network. While it does not match the One X's incredibly polished design, it improves upon its cousin with a kickstand, a dedicated camera key and a microSD card slot. Still, the lack of GSM/EDGE/HSPA+ world functionality is bothersome on such a high-end device, and the sealed SIM is downright egregious. So, is the EVO 4G LTE worth its $200 price tag with a two-year commitment? The answer is simple: Until Sprint's LTE network becomes widespread, it's hard to recommend any handset stuck on the company's lackluster EVDO network -- unlimited data or not. As soon as the device can live up to its acronyms, however, we'll be much more apt to give it our seal of approval.
