    Default EVO LTE vs HTC ONE

    All of this is based off my personal perception but so far here is how I see it

    size= same 4.7 on both...tied
    design= HTC One created to have wider mass market appeal while EVO LTE was more closed and targeted based off its past product line history....EVO LTE
    screen=HTC ONE wins be default due to newer technology. SLCD 3 in HTC One vs SLCD 2 on the EVO LTE....HTC One
    processor= 1.5 dual core in the EVO LTE vs 1.7 Quad in HTC One....HTC One
    battery= 2000mah in EVO LTE vs 2300mah in HTC One.............neither for lack of removability
    software(OS)=ever so slight bump to 4.1.2 on the HTC One versus 4.1.1 on the EVO LTE currently.....HTC One
    software(manufacturer overlay)= too subjective to gauge. HTC one is rocking Sense 5 while EVO LTE is currently rocking 4+
    Memory= HTC One is clear winner hear with double the on-board ram of the EVO LTE. 2gb VS 1gb......HTC One
    storage= HTC One will come in 32gb/64gb non-removable. EVO LTE has 16gb built in and supports up to 32gb.......EVO LTE
    camera=EVO LTE has 8mp shooter with image sense chip. HTC One has 4mp shooter with larger size pixels and greater aperture.......*too soon to know.


    From where I sit the plusses the HTC One has over the EVO LTE are all incremental and to be expected. Nothing to make me say "I gonna run out and get this" and definitely not enough to NOT make me consider other manufacturers. Today's announcement had a lot of hype and pizzazz as to be expected but at the end of the day I'm left saying "MEH!!!". Am I wrong?

    I agree with you for the most part. I personally think it looks and sounds promising, but I'm going to wait and see what Samsung brings to the S4. I've had all three phones in the EVO line, but am open to other options. But it's certainly has some strong points.

    It's definitely a nice phone but your conclusion is exactly why I always wait two years for a new one instead of one, almost always turns out that one year after the device you got comes out you'll only be seeing incremental upgrades.

    Not a huge jump from my beloved EVO LTE. There is no wireless charging which I would of been interested in. The screen and other stats are just small increases.. No need to upgrade here.

    On the software side sense 5 looks (just 1st impressions) like a welcomed change from sense 4 (4+ is basically the same thing as 4) and it may ship with nearly the same android version I'm sure it will get 4.2 before too long so I would say the one definitely has the software edge in every way. Design looks pretty nice too and I'd like to hold one in my hand before I give the edge to the evo there.

    But that being said I agree with everyone here, not enough to make me start a new contract today especially considering more new phones to come from other oem's in the near future.

    To me the HTC one looks to much like a Windows phone 8 as far as how the on screen operations look I still prefer my EVO LTE but I am worried that sense the phone is soon to be released it leads me 2 believe that there gonna hold back on the jellybean 4.2.2 update for the EVO 4g LTE till they get as many sells as they can for the HTC one which can take a while that sucks I dislike apple just as much as the next android guy but atleast no matter when a newer iPhone comes out they still update the older iphones in a timely fashion

    Don't get me wrong I love my LTevo as much as the next guy but once its released if it gets good reviews and has fewer issues I'd make the switch. The dual front speakers really interest me and the quad core will be better for gaming. The upgrades may be incremental but with it being on multiple carriers I think it will get a lot more attention in regards to updates. Just my 2 .

    Am I the only one who has never had a need to remove my battery? Why is having a nonremovable battery a negative? And how does neither device win in that category because of it? That seems more subjective than the software part.

    I can give you 2 reasons why it's good to have a removable battery 1 is if your phone ever freezes it's nice to be able to pull your battery out to reboot the phone and 2 if your battery life sucks it's good to have multiple batteries and be able to switch batteries or get an expanded battery lucky for you, you never had to run into any of those problems but for the rest of us that's the reason why it's a setback if it's not a removable battery

    You are not the only one! It seems charging a phone is too difficult for some!

    Remember what the doormouse said, feed your head!

    Doesn't volume up and power simulate a battery pull for those situations?
    And I carry a portable charger when I know I'll be away from a charging source for an extended period.
    All I'm saying is having a non removable battery is in no way a deal breaker with today's technology.

    I completely agree with your reasoning, however 95% of the phone buying public do not carry extra batteries with them, not do they see this as an issue with recent phones.

    I for one needed that extra battery for my OG EVO because a full charge would last less than 8 hours. My EVO 4G LTE gives me 15 to 16 hours even with 3 to 4 hours screen on time.

    Obviously everyone's mileage will vary, but i think manufacturers are shooting for that Sweet spot for the vast majority of users. In would not be surprised at all to see Samsung move in this direction as well, but only time will tell.

    I agree with you on that it's not a deal breaker with me otherwise I would not have the new EVO that I'm using right now but I do have friends that didn't move to the new EVO for the simple fact that there was no removable battery I guess it's all just personal preference

    Coming from an iphone to this phone I've never had a removable battery in a smartphone. It's certainly not a deal breaker but if I was deciding between 2 phones and 1 did have a removable battery it would certainly be a plus for all the reasons stated above.

    People who are used to have a removable battery though are definitely scared to give that up. I get asked a fair amount about my evo (if nothing else for the red stripe in the back) and people are shocked when they realize there's no removable battery.

    Because apple charges 100 and up to change the battery when they go back and htc will follow suit. It's a way for many factors to make more money off consumers.

    a removable battery is also handy when you expose your phone to liquids... going through a shutdown sequence takes longer than just yanking the battery out.

    First year replacements are free. Second year is 50 if you have apple care. There is no charge if you have insurance through sprint... FYI... Plus I'm yet to have had any issues with my battery....

    I think the HTC One is a great looking phone with some great specs.
    That said, it's not "enough" of an upgrade to make me want to dump y Evo 4G LTE.
    Now, I'm getting REALLY annoyed by the network speeds that Sprint is currently giving us here in central NC. (They were OK for a while, but lately it's just gotten BAD)

    The One is a BEAUTIFUL phone. I wish they would have kept the kickstand used on the Evo. I LOVE the kickstand on my Evo. LOVE it!

    Let's see what the One is like when I can get my hands on it.

    The removable battery issue is a complete NON-ISSUE to me. I bought an external battery pack that can recharge my Evo when I go camping. As to worrying about battery pulls, perhaps I need to invest in a ZIP LOCK BAG to store my phone in when I camp.
    Palm Pilot Pro->Palm V->BlackBerry 8100->PalmTreo650->PalmTreo680->OG iPhone->Palm Pre->OG Evo4G->EVO4GLTE,HTC ONE!

    With the cases these days that have a kickstand built in, this is not that big of an issue for me. Plus with that little bit of extra room it gives the designers, they can stuff more "phone" Inside there.

    Nope. Always stays safely in my holster.

    Now, have I been pushed into a swimming pool? Yes. Thankfully I forgot my phone in the car that afternoon.

    Not that it's important at all to the conversation but I don't think I'll ever be a holster guy...

    Ooooh. Thankfully I'm really paranoid and constantly check that kind of stuff around water, worst I've done is send some flash drives through the washer/dryer and go swimming with my wallet.
