EVO 4G - how's the GPS, and can it USB tether?
I'm looking at getting an Evo 4G to replace my Samsung Moment (which I am really starting to get frustrated with) and MiFi 2200 (which I love, but would be redundant once I get the Evo - maybe). But I have a few questions.
1. How good is the Evo's GPS performance? The Samsung's is, in a word, pitiful. Even standing outside with nothing covering the phone, I can barely get a signal lock. In a car -- even if it's placed right under the window - forget it. None of the other phones I've had in my lifetime have had such sucktacular performance as this (my Blackberry Curve, for example, is so sensitive that it could practically work if placed in a lead lined box [not really, but it's still quite good in comparison to the Moment).
2. Can the Evo be tethered via USB? My employer has a... thing... about broadcasting wifi. My MiFi makes them nervous. I know, it's stupid, but it's corporate policy and what can I do about it. But they are perfectly fine with me using my MiFi in USB tethered modem mode. Can the Evo be used in a similar method?
