Review: HTC EVO 4G Smartphone

PCWorld: Review – HTC EVO 4G Smartphone

The pros: great 8-megapixel camera, beautiful 4.3-inch touchscreen. Cons: you won’t get 4G coverage everywhere. Price: $200 plus $80+ a month for unlimited data.

“HTC has struck gold again with the HTC EVO 4G ($200 with a two-year contract from Sprint), which is easily the best smartphone available on Sprint and is second to the HTC Droid Incredible (Verizon) as the best smartphone available today. The EVO 4G packs powerful specs and a lot of features in a slick, stylish design. The biggest drawback is that not everyone will get to experience 4G connectivity, one of the phone’s best features at launch–yet they’ll still have to pay for it.

In addition to the phone’s $200 price tag, EVO 4G owners will have to shell out $80 per month for unlimited data, as well as a mandatory $10 Premium Data add-on for 4G use. Given that only a handful of cities have WiMax coverage, this strikes me as unfair. Why should a user in, say, San Francisco have to pay that additional fee if they don’t have 4G available to them?”
