HTC EVO 4G Video Review

Every now and then a device comes along that defines a new era in the rapid EVOlution of the cell phone. While HTC’s EVO 4G will perhaps fall short of garnering the cult-like following of the Apple iPhone and may not be remembered by most as the catalyzing factor in a glorious era of omnipresent 4G-wireless, America’s first 4G-capable handset promises to be the first device to embrace a brave new world.

Capable of offering peak download speeds exceeding 10 Mbps over Sprint’s 4G network, the EVO 4G already has plenty to brag about. HTC’s latest, however, manages to set itself even further apart from its smartphone competition. The device has a huge, gorgeous 4.3-inch capacitive touch display, a mini-HDMI output port, and mobile hotspot capabilities that allow the EVO to serve as a WiFi router for up to 8 WiFi-equipped devices.

Although we admitted that HTC’s DROID Incredible for Verizon was, indeed, approaching the realm of the incredible, we can’t help but wonder if the title might have been just a touch more fitting for the already aptly named EVO. Either way, hit that play button for precisely 15 minutes of EVO 4G action.

  • Someone showed me that they can speak into the evo and do text messaging can the apple I phone do that? Can you speak into either of these phones and it converts your voice to texting?

    Looks like the competition is getting closer and closer to the iPhone all the time. If the iPhone didn’t exist I would consider this phone.

      Closer to the iPhone? That’s cute. Hardware wise, many phones have surpassed the iPhone many times over.

      If the iPhone didn’t exist, this phone wouldn’t exist. That’s the honest truth!

  • Very good job. I don’t want to spend several days trying to figure out if a phones interface is decent for what I need to do. So I think your methods were mostly top notch. I would like to see how the 4G interface performed with the software to load pages off the web. This I have found to be the least impressive with my Sprint 3G experience. Web hunting was worse than a bore!
    So, thanks for your efforts and presentation. Great Job!

  • This was a really good review. Very detailed and you know the phone well. You covered all the most important features and sold me on the phone. If I had Sprint I’d probably be buying this phone right now.

  • Please do some demonstration at 4G network capable place, Not in the basement.

  • Hey Tim L.: take a chill pill you pompous jackass. How do YOU like it when people dis you in public? I thought the video was helpful. There are many videos out there that demo the evo, so go look them up if this one isn’t what you’re looking for. This video was new and a bit unique in that he just played around with it and showed the scope of what it can do. It was helpful to see all the swiping action.

    Dude in all due respect, your not a good person to demonstrate this phone. You’re way to spastic with your need to keep swiping on the screen. You swipe so fast but yet nothing seems to happen after you swipe. It almost makes the phone look flawed or broken as you swipe but nothing happens. Why don’t you calm down and swipe once, let the application do what it is suppose to do and then move on to swipe something else. I turned the video off after five minutes because of your erratic need to swipe and gesture. Are you one of those that turns the radio station in a car like every few minutes?

  • Would like to see video and understand the Hotspot capabilities for non-mobile replacement of high speed cable modem inside home. Maybe a video showing EVO as a WiFi router would be good. E
