    It is absolutely still about form vs. function. 32gigs of memory is definately more functional than 16. So is the larger battery. I have never caught myself saying "I really wish my phone had less memory and a smaller battery"! At the end of the day the look of the phone is all subjective anyway.

    Likewise.... Have no other choice on Sprint! lol

    For most of us tech nerds, the 16GB isn't enough. However in my case, I don't use my phone as walking mp3 player or video player so the 16gb is more than enough. But hey, looks dont matter if your odd looking race car has a huge motor in it. lol

    I was using "inferior" lightly.

    Name me one thing other than looks that is superior about the AT& T One X compared to the EVO4GLTE. And in this context nothing about at&T's lte network, different frequencies blah, blah matter.

    That's the "inferior" that I was talking about.

    I understand people's grief. Sprint promised a phone that looked like the One X but with a huge battery, sd card slot, kickstand and a rainbow of colors, all at a cheap price and letting everyone upgrade early. And then they pulled the rug out from everybody and came out with this turkey.

    Oh wait, that never happened. Back to reality. Enjoy your ATT experience.

    16GB is manageable. People have done it for years with the iPhone. The EVO started out with 8GB. So... I'm not sure how our usage patterns have really changed that much. That said. It is a big factor because it's twice as much space. However I'm not sure the battery size will matter much.

    Here's what will matter. AT&T has fallback to HSPA+. Sprint does not. This is the number one reason why I'm going from Sprint to AT&T. Number two is the savings from a family plan. Number three is the phone design.

    I mean no offense, but people who say it's a personal preference or that they like the EVO 4G LTE design...I think they're just saying that to convince themselves it looks good. At heart, no one thinks that's a good looking phone. That was my first reaction too. Not that "oh it's slightly different and black with a kickstand, cool." No, it was "WTF?! That's ugly. Let me take a second look to ensure it really is as ugly as I think." It was. It is. Sorry. But I was willing to simply put a case on it and deal.

    I enjoyed Sprint for years, but I just don't think they'll have the success of the original EVO with this one. Their 4G network is in a REALLY bad place. For most folks, by the time LTE is in their area, the new generation of phones will be out. So this really leaves most people with buying a phone with a feature that they can't use. ... and I'm not even talking about being in a rural area... I'm in the San Francisco area! AT&T at the beginning of the year rolled out LTE now to NYC, San Francisco area, and parts of Texas like Austin. Being a tech person...Guess where I spend all my time? One of those 3 places. So it's utterly embarrassing that Sprint won't have 4G in all of those areas for at least another year. Note that I didn't go with AT&T in the past because Sprint WAS better in these areas. No more. The networks have shifted around and that should be a very big factor in your decision. If I was in Dallas I might stay with Sprint to be honest.

    So you're trading looks and 4G over 16GB and a tiny bit bigger battery. I don't know, I just couldn't give up the 4G. I actually never used the 4G much on my EVO because of the battery...When I did, it was so fast. Night and day. So I'm really looking forward to using 4G without ANY worry.

    Tom, are you looking for someone to talk you out of going to AT&T?

    Nobody is going to argue with you.

    I think it looks great. I like the two-tone look with the red kickstand.

    Me too, I applaud Sprint for being unique. Honestly though, I could care less about what the phone looks like naked because mine will be wearing a Seidio Surface case just as soon as they are available.

Partially fueled by the fugly design that Sprint is getting...But since my wife has AT&T, we can combine and save money. I don't use enough data or minutes to make Sprint worthwhile. I now think the unlimited thing is a gimmick. Having Sprint for 4 years now.

    Sprint lost me for another major reason. Their 4G change over. I don't want to wait 6 months or more before I can use the 4G. I mean who knows how long it'll be before they get their LTE completely sorted out. Then I don't know if they'll charge the $10 extra per month or what but I know my EVO came with that surcharge. The funny thing is I don't often use 4G on the EVO because the battery life was so **** poor. So I paid $10/mo. for nothing.

    The 16GB storage is a bummer...But I only have to go back and again compare to my current phone (I held on to the EVO 4G) and see that it's 8GB there. I never put in a different SD card. So since I don't load all my MP3s onto the phone (I'm a Pandora and now Spotify fan) I'm not concerned about storage. I did start to run out of space with photos and apps, but my upgrade will now be double so I think that'll work out fine.

    I think a lot of people over estimate their usage. I was shocked when I went to Sprint's site and looked. I understand if you like to load all your MP3s onto your phone...But...I also think that it's 2012, we have Google Music and Pandora and Spotify... If you want, just put a subset on your phone and change it up when you want. I still have an 8GB Zune (haha yea Zune, I know) and I never filled it. So I think you're nuts if you need more space for music...I think it's a waste of space to fill your phone with music.

    Plus let's also go back to the EVO again. Why didn't I load it up with music? Because if I spent significant time using it as an MP3 player, I wouldn't be able to make any phone calls with it...No more juice left.

    Ok, my whole "why phones shouldn't be used as iPods" philosophy aside...Is there any real reason why one should stay with Sprint?

    I think the benefits of AT&T outweigh Sprint when you get into the family plans and also it's nice to have a phone that you can use internationally. I was just in London and my wife paid like $16 extra and had no problems. Meanwhile I was in the dark. While I don't travel internationally all the time...Again, the benefits I listed originally.

    Why Sprint? I mean don't get me wrong, I love Sprint...But why? I'm trying to think real hard, but if I can't come up with any good reason come Sunday...Bye bye Sprint. That will teach them to go messing with the design of the phone.
    Just keeping my podcasts up to date (not sure when I'm going to listen) takes up over 8 GB and I have a small music collection. The 10 GB available (6 GB for formatting, apps, and OS) just isn't going to hack it. While I have unlimited data (won't see LTE until 2013 at earliest) 3G isn't going to hack it all the time (especially since I lose coverage in the mountains). I'm sure I'd be OK with 32 GB (26 available) but 16 isn't going to be able to hack it. Time to stop saying it's a 16 GB device.

    You might not mean to offend but you do. You're basically saying that anyone who likes this phone is lying. You're just flat out wrong.

    Well, I'm convinced that I convinced myself its good looking just to buy it, So I just bought a used Palm Pre instead.

    We have been with Sprint for years and never had any problems. I look at like this. I have had an HTC since the windows days and got the EVO. Great phone and yes Battery sucked. When the iPhone 4s was announced, my wife and I got them. iPhone is what it is.

    I am so looking to pre ordering on Monday. But honestly does the look of the phone matter? Yes it's 2 tone...on the back. I dont know about anyone else, but i am getting a case and will not see the back of the phone Yes it has a kick stand (nice touch HTC and Sprint), micro sd card slot (just add a 64 gig card + 16 gig internal + Google Drive or Drop box) and the evo 4g lte is the true winner.

    Yes AT&T may have their speed, but it's limited. Talks about streaming Pandora on AT&T and your data cap is gone much quicker and using LTE...let us know how your bill is? The non removable battery at first I started to question until the size of the battery was announced and compare that to the iPhone 4s embedded battery of what 1450mah vs a 2000 may embedded and the iPhone can last me all day.

    I say for those leaving to AT&T for the one x for the look alone...that's cool we will still be part of the HTC One family. But I say go. Not in a mean way, but it will surely allow us who are going to pre order on Monday, will make it that much easier to get one.

    Ok then. But I still don't buy it =) I would actually like the EVO 4G LTE design if it wasn't two tone. That's a really horrible design mistake. I went to school for graphic design and have worked in design for years. That's my opinion as a professional haha. But yes it is simply up to a matter of personal preference, I do know this. I just still think the majority of people will think the phone is ugly in design. ... and yes I was also just going to get a case. The design is merely a 3rd reason I'm switching. It's primarily cost related and perhaps a tie for 4G. The way I see it, I'm buying a device that has a certain feature...I want to be able to use it. Sprint should actually waive the $10/mo. charge for premium data until their LTE network is fully set. I mean you know that makes your plan $99 + $10/mo. right? That's getting a bit crazy for 3G. I'm paying $100 to leave them in early termination and STILL saving hundreds of dollars over the next year.

    Anyway, I am a little nervous about the switch and came here for everyone's thoughts. So it was a good thread. I guess it's only 2 years if it ends up being a bad choice haha. But I think it'll be good. I didn't give much thought to the storage difference, but after reading here it is a really good note. Thanks.

    Couldn't pay me to switch to AT&T. I borrowed my friends iPhone for one day and had two dropped calls.


    Sprint has been good to me over the years and my plan price is lower than anywhere else. I actually prefer the look of the HTC One X BUT I also like the look of the Evo. I think it stands out. Also i'm 98% sure we'll see 3rd party covers for that area and one of those will probably be matte black.

    Also, living in NYC, i'm assuming i'll have LTE within the year.

    Most do prefer the One X design, its just in this forum the participants are more than a bit biased. I don't think I read a single hands on that didn't question the EVO design. I also wouldn't be too sure of third party back covers considering the antennas are embedded in the cover. You may see them, but you may not.

    I've never understood why people care so much about how other people will think the phone looks. If you don't like it, don't buy it...it's that simple.

    That's perfect for me...one less person in line to buy one increases my chances to get mine.

    According to the Android Central the one x on att is going to have a locked bootloader. This kind of worries me, do you think the Evo lte will be locked? If not there is no way I would switch to the one x.

    Let me help you out:
    http://www.androidcentral.com/hands-htc-evo-4g-lte
    But enough of about what the EVO 4G LTE's packing, and more about what you'll think of it. It's a beautiful device and, like the rest of the One line, is poised to pull HTC out of its recent doldrums. It's thin, it's light, and it's powerful-- it may not be perfect (see our review of the One X for some small gripes), but it's certainly a step in the right direction
    HTC Evo 4G LTE is Sprint's first handset with HD voice, pre-orders start May 7th for $199.99 | The Verge

    Where it does deviate from the formula, however, is an entirely new chassis with aluminum body with anodized black finish matte on the lower back, glossy on the upper third, a shiny border separating it from the screen and a thin, bright red kickstand. Yes, the kickstand is back, and as Sprint enjoyed showing me, it's strong enough to prop the phone in either landscape orientation as well as portrait. It's at least the third instance after the original Evo 4G and the HTC HD7.
    AnandTech - HTC And Sprint Announce The EVO 4G LTE: Krait and LTE, on Sprint for $199 [Updated w/ Hands-on]
    HTC and Sprint teamed up today to announce the latest in the EVO line: the EVO 4G LTE. So, not the most novel name, but it gets to the point. The 4.7" device is carved out of an aluminum space frame, anodized to an all black finish with red accents and an exposed silver edge. And along that prominent red band across the back? That's right, the kickstand's back. But don't call this part of the One series. This is a Sprint EVO device through and through.

    I mean i'm sure some people don't like the look of the phone...I know Engadget wasn't gaga about it...but a lot of reports also say it looks much better in person than pictures.

    You can't please everyone but I think the design is unique...and thats something we need from phones these days.
