    Default Looks like Sprint has messed up another sleek design again

    Can't understand why Sprint continues to change the design of a beautiful piece of equipment.. Tired of bricks and plastic slabs..No difference in phones and horrible network speeds its time to go to Tmobile.

    You say they continue to do it, but I don't know of the ton of other phones they have changed so drastically. Also, how silly are people bashing this design going to feel when they see it and realize that the changes are minor. I haven't seen it either so I'm just supposing, but I won't be surprised to see that the physical changes are less than anticipated today. I certainly don't care for the mock-ups we've seen this morning and I'm hoping for something different tomorrow. I just don't trust the picture of the Sprint phone because there is no branding on it at all and that isn't the Sprint way.

    I agree. Sick of big plastic slabs on Sprint. HTC designs a Ferrari, and Spring t tells them they want a Prius.

    I am ok with the changes, if it means a phone that is, overall, a better experience than the one that looks fancy. If sprint has bigger, removable battery, kickstand and other goodies that the One X lacks, I am all for it. Everyone will be hiding their pretty phones inside a case anyway, so I don't see the fuss.

    I dont use a case and dont have any issues with drops or scartches. Ill take at&t's version over this one anyday. Ill wait for the release of the white one, maybe theyll go back to the OG design. lol

    I loved the kickstand on the OG Evo, and am glad they brought it back. The rest doesn't bother me that much if they added a bigger battery to it.

    HTC Hero is another phone they did this to. Took a great design and turned it into a generic POS. I was really hoping HTC was putting their foot down on redesigns like this when they said they were shrinking their product line. If they keep this up they'll be no different than they were. Still waiting for a pure, uninfluenced HTC on Sprint. Until that happens, looks like I'm still sticking with Samsung

    You people are something else -- without even having any concrete evidence that the leaked pic is in fact one of Sprint's devices.

    I guess most people forget what the word "exclusive" means - "shutting out all others from a part or share." The The exclusivity of the HTC One X, as we all..or most have heard - belongs to At&t. So, this prevents Sprint from getting the exact phone. I'm waiting on Sprint's announcement later on today, to hear what they have to offer us. Hopefully, it will be something that will put a smile on our face.

    Other carriers have had their version of several devices that belongs to another carrier - and some of them seems to work-out-well.

    Quite a few pics came out this morning. Plenty of the ugly *** back with Sprint branding. Just an fyi.

    I really am hoping this is just a prototype and they will make some changes before release. They did with the EVO, although they were pretty minor. I like the top curvature of the glass and the side curvature of the frame of the original One X design. Maybe this wouldn't be so bad if we hadn't seen the original first. And as much as I like the kickstand, this one looks like a plastic cheese spreader in the crackers my kids take to school.

    mmm, crackers... now I'm hungry.

    I hope to god you're right, bit somehow I doubt it. I've been looking toward to getting one of HTC's unibody, or other sleek, well designed phone for years now. I'm now resigned to the fact that Sprint likes big, ugly, square, plastic bricks. I've stuck by them for 15 years, but I'm really starting to shake my head and wonder. Who leads their design crew, a 60 year old man? I'm waiting for them to bring back external antennas at this rate.

    Ok..now that the official Pics are in..the greatest change they made to the phone was the slightly pertruding glass that made it look fresh and new like the Nokia 900 and with the rounded edges. Then they put the metal thingy around it to make it mimic the damn Iphone!!!! And to answer others, Sprint changed the Hero, GS2, EVO, and the Evo 3d.. Made them all like black slabs!!!! We want something Fresh and New like HTC intended the phone to be!!!!

    I was going to sell this ty GS2 and pay the difference off contract for the new EVO but Ill just sale ,payoff the contract and move to Tmobile!

    Sprint didn't design it, HTC did.

    Yes, yes, I know your thoughts, we're discussing it in the other thread. But I'll still respond. Sprint without a doubt had a big hand in the vastly different design.

    Yeah, no. HTC designed it. The Evo brand is an HTC one, not a sprint one. Any changes would have been at HTC's direction, not Sprint's.

    You can keep believing that if you like, but you would be wrong. Sprint without a doubt had a hand in this. Also, from everything I have read, the EVO name is Sprints just like the Droid name is Verizons. ALthough, I don't know how to confirm that, but I have read a few articles contemplating the possibility of an EVO from a different manufacturer on Sprint

    Edit, after a bit more digging, HTC has trademarks on the names of the specific EVO phones, but I wasn't able to find anything for the EVO name itself. It still makes no difference one way or the other as buyer and seller obviously both have input on the device

    Yeah, AT&T won the design award.

    I don't know how Sprint/HTC can drop the ball on something so easy as DESIGN. The One X stands out from the crowd of same old Android phones. Im seriously dissapointed on the route Sprint/HTC took. It looks like very damn Android phone, just with a kickstand...

    HTC owns the Evo brand. They have sold Evo phones abroad. They made the decision to make this phone look as it does.
