The design looks less rounded than the AT&T version :/ that might tear me away from buying it...

If you haven't noticed all the EVO's have a more squarish look. I prefer it and think its very fitting for its name.

I have noticed this, but it looks a lot better on the other EVOs... I don't know what, but something about the design is off... Hmm...
EDIT: I found it like 30 seconds after posting this lol. The upper corners of the glass are more square, as the bottom edges are rounded. That is a problem to my OCD eyes.

I always found the fact that the bezel on the original EVO was about two millimeters thicker on the bottom than on the top really annoying. I think they intentionally design them to be ugly...

It looks very similar to the EVO 3D. Not a bad looking phone, although I prefer the rounded look of the GSM variants.
Either way, this will be ONE best of a phone. No pun intended.

same i think the AT&T version looks a lot nicer with the more rounded endges but i also like the suqarish look

i gotta go with the rounded look. it's a elegant, minimal look that's rare nowadays. it exudes a look of excellent craftsmanship.

yea but im on sprint with my sister and she doesnt want to switch

this definitely looks like the real deal. it looks like a very natural step for both the EVO and One series. o:

Sounds big. Bigger battery, kickstand, better haptic feedback (internal vibrator), these all require more physical space.

Could someone please tell me whether or not the EVO ONE will be quad-core. Isn't the ONE X quad-core?
6. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5470; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
it'll have a Qualcomm S4 because the Tegra III does not have LTE support but when you're comparing the two you're probably going to be better off with the S4 anyway.
7. Commentator (Posts: 2083; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
The international version of the One X is quad-core Tegra 3, but the AT&T version is dual-core S4, as will be the Evo One. This is because the S4 can support LTE bands while the Tegra 3 cannot. Don't let this discourage you though, the S4 has been shown to equal or outperform the Tegra 3 in all major benchmarks, and should have much better battery life, due to its more efficient manufacturing technique (28nm on the S4 vs 45nm on the Tegra 3.)
8. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5470; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
it won't have battery life much better than a phone with the Tegra III. S4 has a more efficient manufacturing method but the Tegra III has that 4+1 core approach.

Any phone with a 2650 mAh battery is going to last a long time, regardless of its processor. Don't you think?
12. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5470; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
sure but i didn't even know that it had such a battery. i was just clearing up Commentator's Statement.
11. Commentator (Posts: 2083; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
That fifth core does help, but Engadget was able to get 8.5 hours of continuous video playback out of the One S and just 6 hours out of the Tegra 3 One X. Of course, the different screens have a role too...
14. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5470; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
yeah, we're talking about a much brighter, less power efficient screen with a lot more pixels versus a lower resolution AMOLED display which is more power efficient anyway. it also depends on how heavily you use them as well because the Tegra III's fifth core is more for less processing intensive tasks while the S4 just uses less voltage with it's pair of cores.

I also think I read somewhere (so correct me if I'm wrong) that one of the main advantages Snapdragon chipsets have over A9/A15 chipsets is that both cores in the Snapdragon can be running at different speeds at the same time, while the cores in the A9/A15 have to be running at the same speed. I'm not even sure where I read this, so anybody feel free to refute this if I'm mistaken.
16. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5470; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
i have never heard that but since dual-core Qualcomm chip sets are asynchronous anyway i don't see why not. o:
13. Commentator (Posts: 2083; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
I'm just hoping this alleged kickstand doesn't add substantial mass to this thing. The alleged huge battery will already be doing that. I admire the Evo line, but they've never been much to look at, aesthetically.

The author says the Evo One will be one of the first LTE phones for Sprint. I think it will be the first LTE phone just as the Evo was the first WiMax phone.
I was hoping this article would have some new news, but it's just a repeat of articles written about a week ago.

It does have new news if that picture is real.
