HTC Evo 4G LTE ReviewCell Phone Reviews — By Naveen Vaidhya on May 12, 2012 at 11:18 am
The predecessor of HTC Evo 4G LTE, HTC Evo 4G was Sprint’s first 4G WiMAX phone. Now the $200 Sprint HTC Evo 4G LTE is here with only 3G connectivity as of now. However excluding the non-4G part it is a very capable phone in terms of display, design, multimedia and camera.
Design & Display:
The HTC Evo 4G LTE is surely a replica of One X of AT&T but with a different design. It has a body of red and black with holding the legacy of Evo design. You can also kickstand the battery cover and enjoy hands free video calling or viewing.
It sports a massive 4.7 inch IPS display that has 1280 x 720 p HD video. The display looks beautiful while playing HD content.
ICS With HTC Sense Topping:
The phone runs on the Android 4.0 ICS with HTC Sense topping. ICS is no doubt the best OS by Android and HTC Sense work pretty on it. Along with the new OS, HTC has even introduced its HTC Sense 4.0 interface wherein the company has removed unwanted icons, texts, etc. that was seen in previous tweak. The lock screen and pinch to home screen is still the same that was seen in the HTC Sense 3.0.
The HTC Evo 4G LTE has camera technology that was seen in the One X and the company had even called a bunch of journalists in New Orleans to test EVO’s camera. With HTC’s ImageSense technology and HTC ImageChip, the camera in Evo has f2.0 aperture along with various shooting modes. These modes include HDR, Panorama and even Macro. It has no shutter lag and the macro mode was undoubtedly the best. Its HDR is not as good as the HRD on iPhone 4 and 4S but have the option of Instagram’s filters. However if you are looking forward in using HDR mode, go for a third-party app.
There phone has a dedicated shutter button that helps in stabilizing the prior taking a photo.
Hardware And The Rest:
The phone currently works on 3G network and if you too much used 4G then it’s a disappointment, however the phone will soon get the 4G network.
Taking about its internals, the HTC Evo 4G LTE has got powerful 1.5Ghz Qualcomm S4 dual-core processor and 1GB RAM. It has a battery 2000 li-on standard battery that gives a significant output with camera and video output. Running online video on Internet also showed significant results.
Even the call quality was good with Evo in comparison of HTC’s One X and One S. There was no crackling sound or disturbance while taking on the phone plus it also features HD Voice technology. The HTC Evo 4G LTE is the first device in US to feature HD Voice technology. This technology shows a significant drop in background noise giving you and the caller a noise free conversation. This is possible by Snapdragon processor that uses dual-microphone noise suppression and also earpiece active noise cancellation technology. This technology also goes requires Sprint’s 3G network and you will need other person to have the HD Voice supported phone feature along with HD Voice supported network.
HTC Evo 4G LTE have Beats Audio just like other HTC phones and has the feasibility to turn it on and off. But we would advise you turn in Beats Audio is of course better. For storage capacity it has in built 16GB card and can be expandable up to 32GB via it microSD card.
The HTC Evo 4G LTE is no doubt the best in Evo phones and also a strong offering by Sprint too. It has a beautiful design with awesome camera and battery performance. However but without LTE the phone seemed to be little dull to us. However Sprint is looking forward to release the 4G LTE network without an actual 4G network. The phone is available for $200 for a two-year contract and will available from May 18 onwards.
