    Default Re: HTC EVO 4G LTE First Impressions/Reviews

    I have to say my experience with my EVO has not been as great as most people are posting here. Half of it is probably because I'm coming from stock Android and another carrier.

    I'm coming from T-Mobile and I've hated T-Mo's services since I switched to them. It got even worse since I moved south to Savannah, GA. Now up north everyone I know with Sprint gets good service so I expected at least similar service here. Well Sprint service here I've now found is horrible. Everywhere I go my Nexus One is reporting better service than my EVO. Someone called my Nexus and I wanted to see how call quality compared so I called them right back on my EVO and the Nexus sounded better.

    At lunch yesterday I ran over to the Sprint store and bought the car dock. I tested Google Navigation on my way home. It was a clear day and most of the drive is open sky. Yet Navigation stopped tracking my movement and displayed "searching for GPS" at least 4 times on a 20 minute drive. My Nexus One almost never does that. Also the car dock that Sprint has is no where close to the quality of what AT&T has with the One X.

    Pictures are taken so incredibly fast, which would be great if they weren't all fuzzy. I've seen lots of posted pictures that look good, but none of mine turn out like that. My Nexus One so far takes much better pictures.

    The screen is absolutely beautiful and is the most redeeming aspect of the phone. Works great in the sunlight. The phone feels OK when making calls, but just OK. The Galaxy Nexus is comparable size and it was very comfortable.

    SenseUI. NonsenseUI is more like it. I've played with stock ICS and just as I've seen several journalists report it feels like they're adding things for the sake of adding them and the stock features are better.

    I'm really debating on returning it, but I know no phone is going to have a screen this nice.

    Well after two days of use, here are my impressions. I must first mention my observation that most of these reviews are from folks coming from the OG EVO to the EVO LTE. I think this make a great diffrerence in the initial impressions. I however, haveat least sampled every good phone out there. This includes the OG EVO, EVO 3D (crappy camera), Samsung Epic Touch (brilliant camera), Iphone 4S (nice camera -limited OS and functionality), Nexus (nice screen and colors/contrast), Galaxy Note (nice screen and camera among others), and other phones like the Photon, I don't care to mention.

    Design - Second to none, well done. Robust materials, thin, very pleasant on the eyes - a sure winner. Only downer being the shiny half to the back but I predict that third party vendors will soon have a matted option and others to more suit the bottom. The fact that the phone comes with a kickstand, memory card slot, and camera button makes it a very hard package to top. I actually think these features put it above the new GS3, at least on paper.

    Screen- here is where some might disagree with me. I love the screen for the clarity. Details are superbly sharp, text is crisp in a way unequaled by no other phone maybe except for the Rezound and Iphone 4. However, the colors are little bland and the screen can appear to be dull at times. I clearly see it in pics and videos and on certain websites. The colors just aren't nearly as vibrant as the Samsung screens (which may tend to be a bit over-saturated but gorgeous non-the-less). To me the screen could use some more contrast; for example some blacks looks grey instead of the deep blacks found on the Nexus, Galaxy Note, and EpicTouch. Overall, an excellent screen, perhaps indeed the best available, but not without its faults.

    Camera - here is another area of contention. The camera is very good, certainly leagues ahead of the OG EVO and 3D - but that's not saying much. I have taken at least 100 pics in various lighting conditions and I noticed a consistent lack of focus in most pics. Maybe I am using the camera wrong but there is something lacking in the focus, the pics looks great but not exactly sharp. I am not having the issues some are having with the focusing. I am stating that the pics are not perfect. They are perhaps about 90% great but not perfect - when all elements of a great pic are considered. I actually saw some reviews that mentioned this. Again, coming from an inferior camera phone might suggest a huge improvement. However, coming from a device like the Iphone 4S, Galaxy Note, or even Epic Touch might leave one less impressed than most. For all of the HTC hype about the camera, I expected more.

    Battery - not overly impressed but it is certainly very good. I noticed the battery decreasing rapidly while surfing the web. I did notice that it tends to level off and slow down as you switch to more normal tasks. To be honest, I don't think it has gone through enough charging cycles to make an adequate assessment. I do think that it should easily last a day though and is easily one of the better batteries available on a phone today.

    OS- I actually have mixed feelings about ICS. While it may provide performance boosts, none of which jumps out at me, it is not without its faults. One thing that I abhor is the perpetual menu bar to the bottom that effectively renders a 4.7 inch screen down to about a 4.4. In fact, the 4.5 screen on the Epic Touch actually feels bigger than the new EVO LTE screen. I also noticed that some apps don't allow me to get rid of the task bar to the top that shows the battery and time. For instance, in the BN Nook app, the option to hide the task bar is greyed out - never saw this before. This effectively cuts a 4.7 screen to even less than 4.4 inches as now you are stuck with a bar to the top and one to the bottom. Other than that nuisance the OS is nice with some changes that will take getting used to but should improve the user experience.

    Processor - certainly snappy but not much faster than say the Epic Touch with its Exynos chip. The user experience is far snappier than my International Galaxy Note whose performance might have suffered from the large HD screen.

    GPS- consistently show me between 5 yards and 20 yards from my actual location but this is actually excellent and probably can be easily fixed. Much better than my Epic Touch that consistently had me a half a mile away...lol. I have noticed that all the HTC phones going back to my Apache (PPC 6700) seems to have excellent GPS as compared to Samsung who seem to never get it right with the GPS radios. The Galaxy Note did however have the most impressive GPS of all my phones but they actually put special effort into that radio which picked up both US and Russian GPS sattellites.

    Final Opinion : Overall a great phone - a substantial and worthy upgrade for most, especially those coming form the OG EVO or even lesser phones. Heck that would be like going from two strings and a cup to cellular tech,,,lol.... However, after having the most current crop of "great" phones, I don't find this one to be too much of an upgrade. Simply put, I am not that impressed. That is not the phones fault since after having owned the Galaxy Note, I knew going in that it would take a lot to impress me since I vowed I would never have another main phone with less than a 5.3 inch screen.
    My most notable considerations include that an other wise large screen is effectively reduced by the ICS menu system. An otherwise brilliant screen suffers from bouts of dullness and lack of contrast. An otherwise superior camera seemingly does not focus all the way and is matched by other great camera phones on the market. No 4G or LTE is a downer though not a deal breaker. In the end, I am really considering returning the phone and waiting for something better to come along - could be a while ,,,lol... No, I don't think that the Galaxy S 3 will be better. I will however drop this phone in a heartbeat if Sprint started selling the Galaxy Note anytime soon.

    Excellent post, ty! It really solidified for me the impression i was sure to have when i FINALLY would've gone thru all the trouble of landing one of these....i haven't even been successful at gettin' the lil bugger in my hands, but i'm fairly certain your review could duplicate to the letter the things i have found with the HTC One X, and on top of all the things you wrote, we'd have to throw no SD Card into the mix.

    I am soooo with you on Screen size, on my One X i kept feeling like, why is this supposed 4.7 inch screen feel SMALLER than my 4.5 inch Samsung Infuse? And every picture i snapped i'm like, i must be nuts, they seemed blurry and less sharp than my Infuse... And don't get me started on the video, it just didn't pop like my Infuse or Samsung Vibrant even... Thought it MUST be me, or the settings, tried a whole bunch, diff ISO, nothing helped....Camera IS nice, not defective, but like you, with all the camera hype, i expected more...

    .And i know that everyone says how great ICS is, and there's a huge learning curve involved, but truthfully, to me ICS largely feels like a "it wasn't broken, why did you fix it"? ... While many changes probably do enhance the experience, i feel an equal amount of the changes seem awkward and confusing, like they just "overthought" many things and jacked with them unneccessarily.

    Throw in the cramped screen, bars top & bottom, no removable battery, no menu button, having fat silly smilies instead of android emoticons, sub par camera shots, inavailability, Sprints abysmal network (for some : ) weirdly designed back, and a few other niggles, i'll say it, it just isn't on par with the 1st generation rEVOlution....

    I think this phone will REALLY wow ppl who are coming from a lesser device, but to those obsessive, compulsive, ppl with sometimes unrealistic expectations, this isn't The One... : )

    So now, thanks to your post, i'm off to change my signature...lol

    i think i'll put something like this:

    "BTC...Turns Out I Prefer "Cookies to Ice Cream!" - who'd a thunk it?!"
    Thanks for putting me out of my misery General

    Default First Impressions/Reviews - battery use while on charger

    A caution / FYI for "navigation" users - keep an eye on your battery level even if you have the phone connected to a car charger. Under "heavy use" mine went down instead of up.

    This weekend I used it as a driving gps with Telenav. With the phone connected to car charger, display on, auto brightness - over the course of about an hour, the battery level dropped instead of going up.

    Maybe our charger is relatively inefficient? It's a generic, $15 model bought at Wal-Mart a month or so ago. Seems to work fine, charges the 4GLTE just fine under other circumstances. Also used it previously with a 1st-gen EVO 4G running Telenav, display on, and had no problems. With the 4GLTE, even with the display off, Telenav running, phone on charger - the charge rate seemed really slow. With the display on, the charger can't even maintain steady state.

    I have another charger I'm going to test some time this week. Hope it's better behaved.

    Connects to my visor mounted BT speaker within mere seconds whereas my ET4G sometimes took minutes.

    So far, can't get it to charge off either of my computers no matter what cord I use and I've never had an issue. My guess is there is a "what to do when a USB cord is plugged in" setting somewhere which I haven't found yet.

    Still have a lot of discovery to do here

    so you came from an E4GT? i have an E4GT now and I'm trying to decide between the S3 and this EVO LTE. if you indeed came to the EVO LTE from the E4GT, please tell me your thoughts to help me make this decision. thanks!

    Coming from an Evo 4G

    Screen, screen, screen, screen...did I say screen. It is simply beautiful.
    Build quality is excellent
    Looks great and even the glossy black plastic on the back top is not as bad looking as I thought it would be from pictures. The black gloss is a fingerprint magnet and it is difficult to wipe them off. I will soon have a case though and won't care/notice.
    Phone gets warm after moderate use. You can feel it around the camera and it is noticeable.
    Kickstand rocks and is really useful though a bit difficult to get out for a guy with no fingernails.
    I accidentally depress the first stage of the 2 stage camera button all the time when holding the phone. It doesn't do anything but it startles me when I do it because I think i'm doing something wrong. Not a big deal though.
    It is annoying having the menu button take up a large portion of the screen for many apps. The button layout is much better with home in the center and back on the left but I often reach for the absent menu button. Also, I don't know that the task switcher needs its own button. I was fine holding the menu button down for 2 seconds.
    Task switching is not well implemented though and often apps have to reload when switching. This is a Sense issue but is annoying.
    Sense is definitely improved but still not perfect. I switched to Nova after only a day and it has worked great other than the task switching issues which still persist. There is a slight amount of lag noticeable sometimes (rare) when using Nova but it is much better than the Evo 4G (used golauncher on the 4g). This is likely due to how Sense manages resources though.
    Battery life is improved but not much better. It will likely be the same as the Evo once LTE gets turned on.
    USB location makes leaving it plugged in with the kickstand out a balancing act. Not a big deal though as I have never really cared to do this.
    Auto brightness is way too sensitive and pretty much useless.
    No flashlight app but a 3rd party app worked well.
    It should have 5 rows of icons. One of the reasons I switched to Nova. There is definitely room. You still get to use the Sense apps (like alarms and timers) but not the Sense widgets.
    Speaker sounds OK but not much if any better to the original evo.
    Camera button feels great.
    Network is still slow
    MicroSD slot = awesomeness
    Un-removable battery didn't bother me as I never did but I know many who used extended batteries with the original evo and I'm not sure that they will have a 3500 mAh solution with this model.
    This phone feels thin, looks thing, and is thin. Can be difficult to hold on to though. Maybe a rubberized, textured case would help.


    Overall, best phone available right now and i'm very happy. I think

    As I remember, I believe the original did reload some apps when switching. I also noticed today that with multiple tabs in the internet, if you had any videos or heavy websites open on one tab for more than a couple minutes, it would likely have to reload the other tabs after switching. It appears multitasking is limited to apps with minimal memory usage or tabs with small websites without video. If you have anything heavier, it reloads the application or tab when you switch to it. Not a deal breaker for me and I don't know that other devices do any better, but you would think with 16GB storage a 1GB of ram that would be enough to switch apps without issues. Maybe Sense is a resource hog.

    Does anyone else experience the phone getting really hot when running apps or watching flash video...stuff that puts a challenge on the phone. It can get REALLY hot in some cases...enough to make me worried. It often feels warm to the touch right around where the camera is, even after light duty use, but under more pressure it can get hot to the touch and uncomfortable to hold. Maybe a case will help but it can't be good for the internals.

    I had not pre-ordered but had walked into a Best-Buy and learned of two pre-order cancellations and bought bought both phones for myself and my wife. We both had the original Evo 4g with the 3500 extended battery which added bulk but made the phones unstoppable for even heavy use for an entire day +. Most of my use is for fairly frequent phone calls, pushing emails from my office server and occasional text messaging and web browsing. The Evo 4G with the extended battery handled all of that with no problem, leaving plenty of battery left when I put it back on the charger for the evening. I live a larger Chicago suburb and I didn't use the 4G too often because I found the 4G coverage to be very spotty and therefore a needless battery drain.

    I read all of the great reviews of the Evo LTE but my biggest concern was battery consumption. The reviews I read said that notwithstanding the large display, the dual processor would make it run more efficiently.

    I'm on day three with the phone and here are my impressions:

    DISPLAY/: As all of the reviews have suggested, the display is absolutely amazing! Everything is incredibly sharp and the colors are fantastic. Pictures look incredible and streaming video from Netlix is great (only used that for a few minutes so far). The display is incredible even in sunlight. The new operating system is excellent and very smooth.

    BATTERY: So far, my experience with battery life has not been impressive. With emails pushing and Bluetooth on and the display set to automatic brightness, I was down to about 14 % by 5:00 p.m. (phone was off of the charger at about 7:30 a.m.). I did learn that the network was set to both LTE and CDMA so I've now set it to CDMA only. W-fi was off, but apparently the GPS has been running in the background, so I've now turned off GPS, and will keep Bluetooth off except when in the car. I've also taken the display brightness off of automatic and set to a lower level of brightness. I'll see how this new combination works tomorrow. Maybe I was just spoiled with the 3500 mAh on the Evo 4G.

    SIGNAL: As I noted before, 4G in our area was always spotty but when I ran the phone on just 3G, pages opened fairly quickly and the Google app store loaded quickly and downloads were pretty fast. I'm finding that everything is running much slower now when I try to connect from my office or my home. I don't know if there is an issue with the tower near my home and office or the antenna in the Evo Lte, but I'm seeing the same slow down on my wife's new phone, as well. When I drive a couple of miles away from my home and the reception bars go up to 5 or 6, the speed is as good as it was on the Evo 4G, but so far, it seems that I am having a tougher time getting consistently good signal strength in the same locations that I had no problem withe when using the the Evo 4G I've updated profiles and PRL to rule this out as a problem.

    If anyone has any other suggestions for addressing these issues, I would appreciate the feedback.

    I'll try to post more tomorrow when I see how these changes work.

    Uhhh, I just can't believe that so many have bad cameras. My pics are crystal clear and 1000x better that any other phone camera I have used. Maybe there is some kind of protective film over the lens? Has anyone with bad pic images checked to make sure there is nothing covering the lens or that there isn't any smudging on the lens? Something is amiss here and I just don't get it.

    Sense not smooth? Really? This is the smoothest interface I have EVER used. I had my E3D over clocked and running ICS with Sense 3.6 and I thought that was super fast. The E4GLTE kills it with the stock ROM! I have over 50 apps installed from the Market and every swipe is sooth as silk! Again, something is amiss here.

    Haven't used face unlock but even the Google calls the feature gimicky, so I wouldn't put much stock in it being wonky.

    No mass storage? I've had mine connected to my PC all day, dragging and dropping files all over the place. Now, the interface on the phone has changed, so things are arranged a little differently, so allow me to explain how it worked for me. When connected the phone brings up the "Choose a connection type:" screen.



    Before you would select the big box in the upper right to connect as a drive. Now the selection is below. Just click the radio button next to "Disk Drive" and it should pop up a drive in Windows! It was that easy for me. Direct access to the SD card. I've been moving music and movies to it all evening and it works perfectly.

    I have noticed it getting pretty warm, especially when using GPS. However, never uncomfortably warm or never so hot that I couldn't put it back in my pocket. It is more noticeable in this thin casing, that's for sure.

    I had a poor camera on mine also. I compared numerous pics with my gs2 adjusted the settings not just using default and they weren't the best. They were fast which is all I could say. The Screen didn't really grab me like everyone it has for everyone else. I decided to return mine.

    Odd. I don't know why you see different options than I do. Might be worth a call to HTC support. I checked their support site and there is a download for an updated version HTC Sync but I haven't installed that so I can't see how that would fix the issue. If you feel like trying here is the link:

    The disk drive option probably only shows up when you have a SD card installed. I may be wrong...but, all I know is that I have a card in mine and the disk drive option shows up every time. Just copied some mp3 files over this morning using that option.

    Just got Evo4g, updating from tracfone, but use Ipod touch.
    The big screen is really great. Main reason I got it was typing on ipod/iphone was not easy, and LOVING the voice dictation and swype.
    Dont like that you have to use 2 hands to turn on the screen. You can do it with one hand on ipod. And the power button on the top seems to be asking to get turned on in a pocket.

    1 - Cannot use HTC sync without buying/adding a separate SD card? I spent a lot of time last night downloading onto PC, and then it doesnt sync. Apple may be a PITA with sync reminders, but its so easy.

    2 - Cannot synch music in itunes, only songs in my "music folder"? Will try using doubletwist.

    3 - The emails are bigger than the screen in landscape and cannot sqeeze them smaller, so have to keep moving the email back and forth. Is there a way to fix this? I made the font to small a bit better

    4 - Is there a way to permanently have the images open in emails, or do I have to hit "open images" each and every email?

    5 - Is there a way to get 2-line preview in landscape? or do I have to keep switching from portrait (to see the preview) to landscape to read the full size email? This is really lame.

    6 - Is there a way to type in from a computer contact info that is not in outlook?

    7 - Is there a way to quickly delete emails, like the left-swipe on the iphone? or do you need to check, delete and confirm?

    It seems that if you use gmail and other google things, ICS is great, but its really not so easy for other email providers, etc For instance I dont see why they make a difference between getting a gmail email or another provider email, its all the same to me (and I do not get many gmails) Then every address gets a bing when it updates. On the ipod one ding is good enough for any or all accounts.

    The first app I downloaded does not work with Andriod anymore it seems, (Currency), but will have to check out some other ones.

    While they say that with Android you have a lot of choices, so far I do not see them. Like its a big deal that you can have 4 icons on the first screen. The iphone/ipod has 16, but you do not have the lovely clock.

    I got this big phone, as I do like the bigger keyboard for typing and like swype. But I have spent quite some time on trying to synch and it has not worked at all. The people in the store and when calling support are either not familiar with this new phone(as they have not seen it), or tell me that most of these things cannot be done.
    While it may be great for tech-savvy people can do all sorts of things, most of us want everything easy, accessible and elegant. Thanks for your help

    Sheesh, give it a chance. It's like the first time I used my original EVO after finally giving up on my old Palm Pre. I swore I'd take it back before the week was over, but then I grew to love it. Apple stuff "just works" but it's very vanilla and boring. Very few options like with Android. Double Twist is a great app. Definitely get it, as well as Air Sync you will like it. The rest of your post smacks of iPhone trolling but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say give it a few days.

    Comparison complaints of likely the most fully featured smartphone ever to the...iPod? Really? Sorry, but that's kinda...oh I give up.
