    Really disappointed in Sprint. They destroyed the gorgeous One X design and gave us yet another ugly black brick.

    And what happened to the rumors of the 2650mah battery? I would much rather have a One X than this phone, it offers nothing new.
    You are not serious...are you? Lmao! This 'bad boy' is one hell of a device. Sprint has never disappointed me, hmm!.. maybe in their ("lack of their limited 4G coverages,") but never in their choice of devices.

    Why can't some people just get it. The One X is just a name. If At&t didn't have the 'exclusivity' -- then Sprint 'might' have consider naming the phone some sort of One X. Does it really matter?? I'm glad that they decide to keep to keep the EVO name.

    I'm super excited that we (Sprint) customers now have the device which is a true "successor" of the EVO 4G.

    Have you read the "opening post" in this thread. The One X, but with Extras.
    For what it's worth... You (we) don't have to upgrade to this phone.

    dedicated camera button..nice!
    Dimensions: 5.3 x 2.7 x 0.35 inches (LxWxT)
    Weight: 4.7 ounces
    Display: 4.7-inch HD 720p super LCD (1280 x 720), 16.7 million colors
    Battery: Imbedded 2000mAh Lithium Ion (Li-ion) battery
    Memory: 16GB internal memory (ROM); 1GB RAM; supports up to 32GB microSD card (sold separately)

    I really like how the weight and thickness are the same as One X. What's better is the device has a bigger battery those only by 200mAh goes a long way for some people. (FYI Thunderbolt user can appreciate the difference between stock 1400mAh battery and seido slim 1600mAh extended battery)

    A another nice touch by Sprint is the fact you can add up to an extra 32GB of storage for a total of 48GB if you need it. I may not like color scheme of this device but having kickstand, bigger battery and removable storage all for $199.99 is a great deal with unlimited data for now.

    P.S Dedicate button is negative for simply because there is no wear and tear on a software camera button. Plus HTC has greatly improved the response time in tacking pictures I can see the dedicate camera button on the HTC Evo 4G LTE going out fast for some.

    I'm not convinced Sprint demanded all of these changes.
    Who else? You can be damn sure HTC didn't want to dilute the HTC One brand when they stated many times they want to reduce the no. of devices.

    I think it was perfectly possible to replace the sim card slot with sdcard, and put in the bigger battery, and keep the One X design with the polycarbonate shell.

    Call it the HTC Evo One X. A much better name than '4G LTE' which makes no sense since Evo 3D was already the succesor to the 4G and it doesn't have 4G in the name.

    Why can't we get a powerful AND beautiful phone?

    They shouldn't be anything more than current plans. LTE is replacing Wimax, both are 4G.

    That battery will never make it through two years, especially if you happen to be in a city with LTE. Unfortunately that will be the deal breaker for me. And I have loved my Evo 4G and 3D.

    I beg to differ... What ever changes/modifications that were made to make the EVO 4G LTE was done for a reason. I'm loving the name and I'm sure many are too.

    The ("dedicated camera button; 200mAh power battery; kickstand; 16GB of storage,) plus a few more is what makes me love this device even more.

    What I'm going to do now, is to kick back, relax, and wait for my upgrade to kick in.

    Unlimited data + dream device + incredible 4G LTE speed = Sprint's HTC EVO 4G LTE.

    I don't think he's referring to the name, he's referring to the beautiful One X body that just got destroyed in the new EVO. He's not alone. Forums and site are getting lit up with how Sprint fuglied this thing. Good phone, bit hands down ugly

    Lol, wow, really? Yeah, its and ugly EVO with a 2 year old design scheme. Maybe one of these days Sprint will realize HTC has better designers than they do and just leave them to it rather than butting in and screwing it up.

    Also, since no one else seems to be talking about it, they got rid of the contacts on the back, so none of the nice easy docks

    Dude. Lte requires a sim. The ONLY way to add a microSD card slot was to completely change the build.

    And that is precisely why HTC made all of the changes. This is not a One series device, so it shouldn't look like one.

    The material choices would be all HTC.

    Considering HTC just made a big deal about how they weren't going to be making a whole bunch of different phones, and how they were cutting down to a few, I'm not sure about this. I still say Sprint had more to do with this than HTC, just like with the Hero.

    And, just for the record, it looks like a great phone, and I love the aluminum body. Its just the very dated design and the lack of charging contacts I hate.

    I still doubt it. HTC has two embedded 'brands' right now: One and Evo. We've already seen the one series, and today we saw the first of the Evo. They are clearly different brands with different missions. Frankly, the OneX design would have been totally inappropriate as an Evo, and the fact that HTC didn't use it proves that.

    And people are forgetting that, with the Evo debut, HTC only has four new handsets for 2012. That's still far, far, less than last year.

    Also, I think people aren't understanding what HTC meant when they announced the one series. Nowhere did they say that they would only offer the one designs, and nowhere did they say that there wouldn't be different designs bases on the one hardware. What they said is that they would be simplifying their lines based around a small group of software and hardware experiences. The experience you get on the E4GLTE will not be any different than the experience you get on the OneX, and THAT was the biggest issue HTC wanted to address.
