HTC EVO 4G Video Review

The good: The HTC Evo 4G delivered respectable 4G speeds, and the mobile hot-spot feature lets you connect up to eight devices. The smartphone has a front-facing camera for video chats and also comes with an 8-megapixel camera with HD-video-recording capabilities. The Evo ships with YouTube’s HQ video player, Android 2.1 with HTC Sense, and an HDMI port. Other highlights include an extra-large 4.3-inch touch screen and a 1GHz Snapdragon processor.

The bad: Sprint’s 4G network is limited at this time, making the mandatory $10 premium data add-on tough to swallow for anyone outside of the coverage area. The Evo lacks support for Bluetooth voice-activated dialing. Battery drains quickly with 4G.

The bottom line: 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.
