HTC Evo 4G LTE review
7 January 2014
Summary: The HTC Evo 4G is perhaps Sprint's most important phone ever. When it was released in 2010, it was Sprint's best phone by a long shot, and one of only a few truly great Android devices. Two years later, Sprint's in dire need of another winner, and it's searching far and wide: the company paid dearly to carry the iPhone, and is also now selling the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Sprint's next flagship phone, though, might be another Evo.
Excerpt: Let’s see now… how do you talk about a phone that’s already been talked about so often that most details would just appear repetitive? The HTC One X, the first of its kind in the mobile kingdom, is slated to be the apparent game-changer in the new-age, high-speed, mobile arena. Loaded up with all the latest and “greatest” goodies that HTC could throw at you, the One X is aimed at the high-end mobile users who won’t settle for anything less than a great user experience...
Conclusion: So the HTC One X+ is more powerful, better looking and more musically gifted than its predecessor. It also offers more storage, a larger battery and the power of Jelly Bean and Sense 4+ out of the box. None of the updates is ground-breaking, but when you add them together you get a package that is way more desirable than the One X. Had the One X+ came to the market back when HTC released its predecessor, the story might have been different.
Pros: Quad-band GSM and 3G support, 21 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, 4.7" 16M-color Super LCD 2 capacitive touchscreen of HD resolution (720 x 1280 pixels); Gorilla glass 2 protection, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with latest HTC Sense 4+, 1.7 GHz quad-core Cortex-A9 CPUs, low-power companion core, ULP GeForce 2 GPU, Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset, 1 GB of RAM, 32/64 GB of storage, 8 MP autofocus camera with LED flash; face detection and geotagging, 1080p and 720p video recording @ 28f...
Cons: No microSD card slot, No dedicated camera key, Non-user-accessible battery, No native video-calls, Video framing is tricky
Excerpt: I was recently sent the HTC EVO 4G LTE Android Smartphone for Sprint and it reminded me of the fact that I used to enjoy building my own desktop computers by picking out the case, motherboard, video card, audio card, monitor, OS, etc. I would always get exactly what I wanted that way. I sure wish we could do that with our smartphones don’t you?
Pros: Nice display, Built in kickstand, Beats audio, Dedicated camera shutter button
Summary: HTC One X Review.The HTC One X is a Android smartphone from HTC. It has a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor running Android OS 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and HTC’s Sense 4 user interface. It has a 4.7-inch screen, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC wireless networking, dual cameras with HD video capture, and an 1800 mAh battery all crammed into a stylish white exterior. I loved the One X’s design, with its slightly curved edges and integrated body, made of polycarbonate.
Pros: Great screen, Excellent overall performance, Great sound, especially if you use Beats headphones, Excellent camera
Cons: Sense 4.0 UI is puzzling, Non-removable battery, No microSD
Excerpt: The One XL is Telstra’s version of the very shiny HTC One X. This is HTC’s flagship Android phone with the added benefit of 4G LTE. To accommodate that however there are crucial internal differences between the X and XL. Where the X has a quad-core Tegra processor the limitations of current LTE chipsets means that the XL has to make do with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 instead.
Summary: Batman Begins. The Muppets. James Bond in Casino Royale . What do they have in common? They’re all examples of franchises that got better after a reboot (some will disagree on Casino Royale , but I’m standing my ground). For HTC, that’s exactly what the One series represents: a thorough reboot of the company’s image, philosophy, and hardware.
Pros: Superlative battery life, Best phone display ever, Superb design and materials, Camera UI is best in class, LTE is fast, even when "slow"
Cons: Sense 4.0 is still as much a liability as an asset, Hard button experience isn't perfect, Photo and video quality only average, AT&T adds the usual crapware
Summary: With the slight disclaimer that I have yet to use the Samsung Galaxy SIII, I have to say that I am fairly confident in saying that the HTC One X is the best Android device I have ever used. It takes the best industrial design I have seen in an Android device, and combines it with top-notch specs and the best version of HTC Sense yet, as well as an updated version of Android
Conclusion: With the One XL hitting all the marks across performance, multimedia and interface, there’s very little going against it other than its price. On EE’s 4G network, the handset will set you back £46 per month and a £26 up front payment. If this sounds like a reasonable outlay for having the speediest web crawler out there, then you can purchase a One XL with confidence.
Pros: Fast mobile internet speeds, Great web performance, Gorgeous screen
Cons: Expensive, Non-expandable, Mediocre battery life
