"Close but no cigar."2.0 starson by ahhfoo
Pros: Video is by far this phone's strength. Unfortunately, that is where the love affair ends. If you primarily watch movies and TV then by all means get this phone. If not - you can do far better elsewhere.
Cons: Weak battery, extra heavy (and when the battery fix finally does come in it will be even heavier), too large to feel like a comfortable phone, seems delicate, a pain to open, and the biggest con by far - SPRINT!!!
Summary: There is no way to rate, discuss or consider this phone without a mention if it's true rival, the iphone. video wise the HTC EVO takes it against the 3GS but it will likely not take anything when compared to the immediate future of the iphone. Put plainly, the HTC EVO is a great phone for a kid who is rich and who needs an all around platform of a phone that shows and shoots decent video and pictures. Unfortunately, that is the bitter end of the comparison because the iphone is everything from a toy to a tool. It can serve almost all needs across a wide spectrum and do so seamlessly and with ease. The HTC, while nice and as stated, capable of good all around AV uses is little more than a toy.
If you would like a good demonstration of this find friends who use both and compare the available apps for each. iphone apps cover almost every spectrum with capable and useful apps. Finding capable android apps? Well let?s just say if I ever find one I will share it in an addendum...
