Screen is gorgeous
ICS with HTC sense
Thin and light
Cons Not a one.
Summary I use my phone as a portable computer for work. This phone flat out gets it done. I am also an avid photographer and now leave my point and shoot and home. The battery gets through the entire day even when in heavy use. The screen is huge and looks awesome even in sunlight. It is super thin and light, and actually feels better with a case on it. The beats audio sounds great, so I finally ditched my third party equalizer app.
Bottom line, this is a great phone. Finally something worthy of replacing my EVO 4g.
Pros Great battery life
Great display including outdoors
Nice, solid design
Cons New step up in size takes getting used to....
Summary I am not going to go into details repeating what others have stated. This phone has everything I desire in a smartphone. Great radio/phone quality, screen, camera, HTC sense works extremely well. I often make use of the HTC calendar/agenda widget, as a proffesional these tools are very usefull for staying organized. The HTC email app is excellent. You can actually get it to push your gmail email if you set it up as Microsoft exchange. Now I can have all my emails from different providers together in one email app with push without the need for a third party mail client from Google's playstore. When I first saw photos of the phone online I thought the design was rather ugly. Seeing and holding the phone in person is a different story. It definately looks different but I like it. I am very satisfied with the build quality. I can go all day on one charge , sometimes a day and a half depending on usage. I actually found this phone at Walmart a day or two after the phone was realsed from customs. I was available for $158.00 with a new 2 year aggreement. Make no mistake, this is the best android phone available on any carrier. Its only competition is the samsung galaxy s3. I am not concerned with LTE coverage because I have wifi at home and work and in most public places such as malls, restuarants, coffee shops etc provide free wifi. If you live in the Miami, Florida area you will be happy to know the first LTE tower is scheduled to be on by the end of June. If you are a sprint customer this is the phone to get. If sprint has good coverage in your area and you have considered switiching carriers and saving on your monthly bill, this is the carrier/phone to get.I can't compare it to the galaxy s3 US version because it is not released yet. I have had this phone for about 2 weeks, and have had no issues. So far my experience has been enjoyable, I am very pleased with this product.
Pros 1)720p video as crisp as my 50" plasma.
2)Phenomenal camera w/HDR,Panorama,99 shot burst shooting,slow motion mode, 1080p video that's TRULY 1080p with no noise.
3)HD voice capable, but amazing call sound quality regardless.
4)up to 76 GB storage.
Cons only if you're comparing them to older, more primitive Androids is having a non removable battery a con...but it lasts 15 HOURS!
Summary This phone truly is the winner of the year. Yes, even over the Galaxy SIII because it has a far superior camera experience and the ability to expand up to 76gb (w/a 64gb micro SD card formatted WITHIN the device. Yields about 60gb then add the 16 onboard).The more you use it, the more you fall in love with it. The Beats audio delivers an amazing high quality sound no matter what the output is be it the headphone jack or bluetooth. I doubt there's a similar sound setting in comparable in any of it's rivals.
All that's needed is the LTE. Yet I did manage 1.2mbps on 3G, so it's not a slouch in that department...at least til the LTE Advanced Network of Sprint crushes all.
This phone is definitely worth the wait if you haven't recieved one in pre-order yet. Do not settle for anything less. It's better than the Droid Razr and Galaxy S II/III and even the Nexus. It truly lives up to the hype of the One X/EVO legend.

Every day I feel I find a new super power in this phone. Every bell and whistle is available from Android Beam to NFC to Beats to HD Voice to 99 shot burst, to HTC Sense 4.0 to the video playback and brilliant screen! The camera's imaging chip takes the most amazing closeups ever that it's doubtful the S3 can match. Photo quality is exceptional...you just have to know how to set it.
The call sound quality is already amazing to the point that when HD Voice is activated by Sprint, there will be no other phone that can top this.
Pros 1.Huge, brilliant display (Better than the IPHONE and any other phone)
2. Countless features and intuitiveness of the phone
3. Camera and recorder-Stellar!! Best I have ever seen.
4. Very thin!
5. Amazing kickstand. Strong, metal and perfectly placed
Cons -No ability to change out the battery. This is very minor to me.
Summary The best android phone or phone I have ever seen PERIOD!! This phone is the best android phone on the market and in my opinion, better than the IPHONE 4. The gorilla glass, clarity, amazing detail, big screen, great features, amazing speed, ability to add 32GB to the internal 16GB, amazing camera and features, and the list goes on....Anyone knocking the phone for other reasons not having to do with the phone itself are out of their mind. This phone was worth any delays and I am so happy I pre-ordered this one. This is sprint's best phone, hands down and in my opinion, the best phone on the market today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cons text message does not go through all the time
Summary I have had this phone for over a month and I am wondering if the editor just has something against Sprint. This phone is not horrible at all. The call quality,camera and video are great. The internest is a little slow, but not horrible. I am very happy with this phone.
