HTC EVO 4G (Sprint) Preview

DSC_3049In about a week or so, the latest flagship Android phone will be launching on the Now Network™.  Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you undoubtedly know that I’m talking about the HTC EVO 4G for Sprint.  It just so happens that I have one in my possession.  I’ve also scrounged up an HTC DROID Incredible from Verizon.  My time is limited with both.  The most frequently tweet I’ve received, in the past month, is “EVO or Incredible. Which should I buy”?  I will have a full written review for the EVO and I will try to compare and contrast it against the Incredible as best as I can.

If you have questions, drop me a line in the comments or on twitter (@breon).  I’ll do my best to get to all of them, in the limited time that I have with the device.

I want to thank Robert Green, from Battery Powered Games, for loaning me this device.  You may remember my review of one of their games: Antigen.  Keep an eye on this developer, as they’ll be releasing a pretty sweet 3D game in the near future.

To tide you over…

  1. It’s big.  Dare I say that it’s HUGE?
  2. I’m not sold on the keyboard.  I love the Sense keyboard, but this one has a weird layout.
  3. The screen seems washed out, as compared to the Incredible (or even my Hero).
  4. QIK + Front-Facing Cam = Win
  5. It’s huge.
