EVO 4G

The HTC EVO 4G is my new smartphone and so far it is the best phone I’ve owned. This short video gives a walk around the EVO to show what it packs, and demonstrates how fluidly the Snapdragon processor keeps things moving. In the video you’ll see how the camera works for still photos, and get a look at the EVO web browser in action. Check out my full review if you like what you see in the video, and you can also get a feel for how the EVO 4G performs while traveling.

As a bonus, there is a comparison of the standard LCD screen on the EVO with the AMOLED display of the Droid Incredible. You can get a feel from watching the video what makes AMOLED the screen to beat (not counting the Retina Display), if Samsung can ever make enough. It’s a full side-by-side look at too of the hottest Android phones today.

  1. AMOLED is is way to over saturated (warm colors), doesnt offer true resolution, terrible in sunlight

    something LCD beats it in every way

  2. The only thing I don’t care for with my EVO is the 65K colors HTC limited the EVO’s LCD to. It is leading edge in every other aspect so all I can figure is the EVO was the first phone where HTC had to quickly compromise on screen technology. I mean 16 bits per pixel is so 90’s!

  3. AMOLED is a gimmick. How doe you like that EVO battery life?

  4. Video looks really sharp as long as you have really steady hands. As good as a flip imho. The screen works well in sunlight. The battery maybe better than I first thought. I don’t think I had it.completely charged plus I hadn’t installed ATK.

  6. I enjoyed the video James. Have you noticed any differences since Sprint rolled out the update this week? I’ve been getting slightly better battery life with it.

    1. I have seen slightly better battery life, although I was pleased with it before the update. More significantly, I am seeing better signal with WiFi.
