Summary: I bought it over a year ago and it is still going string. i used to play games and even skype. There are at three issues with this product though. One, it is tied to sprint, and every time this tablet is turned on it tries to connect to Sprint's cell towers. This is annoying as you have to keep pressing the "cancel" button telling it to quit trying to connect. Two, the speakers and microphone in this tablet are set up to cause, rather than avoid, sound feedback.
Extremely powerful device does what I need and more.

Summary: I bought my HTC Evo View several months ago and it has worked out well for me. I have not activated it on the Sprint network so I only use it with WiFi. It strikes me as very durable and well made. For not much more money, it blows away the Kindle Fire and B&N Nook IMHO. I have also compared it to a first generation Samsung Tab. I prefer the HTC, although this comparison is closer depending on what features are most important to you.
Summary: Got the flyer, which is the wifi only version. Loved the size and weight, but for the price I returned and went for iPad instead. I have had android phones since the first but being a Mac person, the iPad ui wins by a mile. The discontinued issue was the very limited selection of accessories which I guessed will only become more so. Also proprietary charger connection was a disappointing choice on htc's part.
Summary: IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO SIGN UP FOR A TWO YEAR SPRINT PLAN READ THE NEXT PARAGRAPH ! If you intend to use this without connecting it to a Sprint Account there are some things you should consider before making this purchase: 1: You will NOT ever be able to update the Profile, Firmware or PRL of this device. This is very bad. 2: The Cellular network radios will always be on.
Small enough to fit in purse but large enough to watch videos.

Excerpt: This product is very handy. I love that it is small enough to fit in my purse but large enough to watch Netflix or YouTube. We got this tablet because my husband was switching from an Android phone to an IPhone and he didn't want to lose all of his apps. We just switched all his apps (games!) over to the tablet and we were good to go!! It's awesome. The kids love it too and it is very durable. Started off good but has now diminished. I wish it was faster on the internet.
Excerpt: I had an older Android Tablet that I had trouble using the touch screen on. (I would hit the kepad on the screen and nothing would happen.) This model is much better. Also as someone else commented it is durable and in my opinion stashes easily in a purse. I think it is a good value if you find a decent price on it. Nice features, quality brand and durable. Definitely worth taking a look at.
Excerpt: I love the stylus that comes with this tablet. You can draw, highlight, color or mark up any page and save it. It's a neat feature that I haven't been on any other tablet. Great battery life for a tablet. I only have to charge mine every other day, unlike my phone. Light and compact The HTC EVO View 4G uses the Android Marketplace, which has hundreds of thousands of apps.
