The wireless industry has been speculating for weeks about a new phone from HTC, rumored to be called the “EVO Shift.” Today, the HTC EVO Shift is formally unveiled to the public, and Wirefly had a chance to compare the new EVO Shift with its older sibling, the EVO 4G. Both phones are on Sprint’s speedy 4G WiMax network, both are solidly built by HTC and both run the Android 2.2 operating system, but the two phones diverge significantly from that point. Which one claims the title of “fastest”? And which is the right EVO for you? Click on the video to the right to see a Wirefly Schmackdown pitting EVO vs. EVO.
Both versions of the HTC EVO are available from Wirefly. If the big screen, front-facing camera and blazing Internet speed of the HTC EVO 4G are to your liking, you can’t be blamed for thinking bigger is better. On the other hand, if you need a physical keyboard and the same speedy Internet connection in a compact package, the HTC EVO Shift is the natural choice. Either way, the latest evolution of the EVO product line is a worthy addition to Sprint’s family of Android phones.
