Summary: There is not much to say except the phone is junk. The screen goes crazy and does whatever it wants, half the time I can't even use it. It won't let me use my data I pay for. When I am in the middle of calls my phone just hangs up by itself. Certain letters don't work on the keyboard unless I turn the phone sideways to make the keyboard long. Also no memory card will work in it so I can't save photo's or do the updates the phone is supposed to have.
Summary: I have two of these for use as freedompop phones. The design is 3 yrs old but will upgrade to ics. Nice features including a 3d camera( more of a gimmick than useful, but neat ). Pretty low on memory 1gb, but that's what microsdhc cards a for. Fairly snappy with 1 gb ram. Call quality over Freedompop's voip voice service is pretty horrid ( not the phones fault ). Battery life is pretty bad but that could be the feedompop software.
Excerpt: I had this phone last year, and I used to love it... the keyboard is AMAZING!!! I used to be able to text in class without having to look and i had like a 95% success rate. Autotext was a BOSS... (smh horrible student I know lol but I graduated no thanks to the PHONE!! LOL) also, this phone fell out of my pocket 2x and I didnt realize it... the first time the glass was cracked to hell but definitely still workable.
Summary: So, I would like to start off by saying that I am not the most tech savvy guy in the world and to be quite honestly, I don't get a lot of things about this phone. But, I do like the fact that this phone has a very reliable touch screen and I love the easy to use feel of it. It is of a very good size and works better than any other phone I have ever had.
Excerpt: The main reason why I wanted to leave this review is because I want to disagree with all those people, who gave a poor rating to this phone. HTC EVO is sick! Anyone whom I showed this phone to was amazed - this is all-you-can-do phone. Just got it this fall. Previously I had Samsung Intercept, well that phone was a disaster!!! HTC EVO is a well built phone! 2 year's passed and it is still one of the most competitive phones out there! Great display! Great multitasking!
Pros: powerful processor, 3D camera, cristal clear display, 4 buttons makes it easy to navigate and multitask, camera shutter button, microHDMI output and microUSB in one!
Cons: front facing camera could be better, wish had just a bit larger internal memory
Summary: I have had nothing but problems with this phone. due to an insurance plan i have been able to turn it in and swap it out for another evo 3D and had the same problems with each and every one. I Personally have gone through 5 and am now on my 6th. My Father and both of My sisters had gone through about a total of 5 of these phones before they were able to junk it out and get an Iphone. I STRONGLY discourage anyone from buying this phone, you will have nothing but regrets.
Pros: honestly, I have had so many problems with this phone that it is hard to see any pros
Cons: -phone will randomly turn off, -phone will freeze up, - 3D camera does not produce quality images, very oversold in the commercials, - it takes 15 min to download an application no matter if you are using wifi or the mobile network energy connection
Excerpt: I've had this phone for over a year now on Virgin Mobile. A solution to short battery life is to buy a third party battery (i use a 1900 mah anker battery) which lasts 2 to 3 hours longer than the stock battery on average. The camera has a considerable amount of shutter lag. After rooting, it seems like the 4.1 stock camera app works best (compared to the htc sense camera and 4.2 stock camera). Cell signal/reception is pretty bad, rarely getting more than 3 or 4 bars.
Pros: Feel, 3 color notification light, Design
Cons: Battery life, Camera shutter lag, Difficult to root
Excerpt: This is a very good phone that I think was discontinued too early. It came out 2 years ago and it can still pretty much hold a candle to middle-high end smartphones. Pro: -Speed, with a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm snapdragon that is running on dual core, going thru apps is not a problem. - Battery life is great getting through about 17+ hours on a full charge, and that's with Twitter, text, web surfing, email and YouTube going throughout the day.
