"Phone freezes up"on by zooiecon
Pros Screen size, thin phone
Cons Phone freezes up. My grandson was stuck in emergency situation with a phone frozen and not workin.
Summary Would not recommend this phone as it is not reliable.
Pros Fast working, great signal, WiFi hotspot works, great screen, rear camera/flash works well, easy to use, layout allows many widgets/apps to be easily accessible, great weather graphics, great speaker, keyboard first I can use without stylist etc....
Cons Cannot turn off factory unlock screen have to swipe then put in pass code just to unlock phone. Front facing camera not very good (haven't seen a phone with a good on yet though),zoom sucks, charging battery every night (have had worse)
Summary This phone is pretty simple to use. It is fast, reads touch well, keyboard is first I can type on without hitting another letter every time I go go type something. It has a beautiful screen which displays great colors and graphics/photos. Layout of apps/widgets it nice, many screens you can put shortcuts/widgets on. Runs smoothly when playing video or animation of any sort. Keeps signal and 4g. There have been a few quirks I get annoyed with (lock screen being worst) however with all the great features I can deal with a few annoyances with no issue. Camera is great, however you must understand sometimes manual focus is needed, camera likes focusing on nearest object not great facial recognistion but all you have to do is tap screen on what you want to focus on and it corrects itself, or sometimes if you press and hold snap button it will auto focus on the main object instead of closest (only time it hasnt worked for me is taking very close up pictures. Has many features you can turn on and off, can put up app to turn off and on WiFi hot spot and 4g to help save battery. All around great phone I am happy with so far...no major issues yet and haven't had any of the horrible cons anyone else has listed...and if you could turn off the swipe screen so you just had to put in pass-code would have given 5 star...not price is a little high but yay store credit so got it for half price.
Pros Surprisingly quick.
Touch Screen is bright & fast, great resolution.
Cons NATIVE EMAIL CLIENT DOES NOT WORK W/ IMAP prefixes.
Not dual processed
Low Battery life
Summary It's the IMAP prefix thing that's a killer for me. I don't feel like having to route my business email through Gmail or use 3rd party apps like K9, MailDroid, etc. Mostly because then conversation "threading" isn't available i.e. the native contacts, message, dialer, and email are designed to "thread" all communication--which is exactly what I need. Not using this phones native email app leaves emails out of all contact threads--not acceptable. For more detail, here is the note I sent to HTC about it:As I thought, using IMAP prefixes are not supported. with their version of Android ICS firmware. They suggest using a 3rd party app, but ignore that this doesn't allow email to be threaded with other communications across the device:
I have an HTC Evo 4g Design. It is running Andoid 4.0.3 While setting up an email account using the stock pre-installed email application (NOT Gmail) there is no way to include an IMAP prefix to accounts. (Such as "MAIL or "INBOX", which are very common) If an email account has an IMAP prefix associated with it this will cause multiple folders to appear in the native email application with the prefix attached as well as default Inbox, Sent, etc. folders (such as folders: INBOX.Sent, INBOX.Drafts, etc..) Furthermore, sent mail is defaulted to the default native software created folder "Sent" and does not sync via IMAP with the actual email account server folder. Therefore no messages sent from the HTC phone appear on the server email account and are not synced across devices. Incredibly. there is not even a way to designate through your interface which folders to use as a default folder, which several 3td party mail applications do to get around this issue without using an IMAP prefix.(This is not a great solution from them, but it works.)
Notably, Motorola--which uses Android of course--has an "IMAP Prefix" field in email account settings, logically. This has apparently been a problem with HTC phones for YEARS (2009?) as I can glean from the web. This a continued major oversight. Is their a way to address this? Are you even addressing this? If not, I will be returning this phone and making it clear that it's native email software (which very importantly, native contacts, dialer, & message programs thread to) cannot setup IMAP email addresses that have prefixes, like almost all other smartphones can, i.e. Motorolla, Samsung, Iphone, etc. Without the ability to use your native email program the usefulness of this phone drops dramatically, as I cannot easily thread conversations form contacts across email, phone, sms. I have proprietary email accounts for a reason: security. Therefore, having to route my email through a Gmail account is NOT an option and should not be even considered as a "solution" .

"I realize how important it is to use and have the configurations available for your preferred email accounts. I see you are in need of an option for an IMAP prefix. I definitely understand your need to be able to adjust this setting, and apologize that it is not available in the default mail set up. There is not a setting or a work around within the application that will allow you to set the IMAP pre-fix. I apologize that this is not available. While I realize a third party application is not the solution you prefer you may find one in the Playstore that will allow you to set your Imap account up with the pre-fix you need. Please accept my sincerest apologies for not having a setting available for an IMAP prefix in the default mail program."
