HTC EVO 4G crippled to 30 FPS despite 1GHz Snapdragon
posted by Ray S. / Jun 11, 2010, 4:13 AM
This is surprising, since weaker spec'd phones, such as the HTC Hero, have consistently exhibited close to 60 FPS, which is considered to be the norm for Android.
On the other hand, no one is reporting any unbearable hiccups while scrolling the menus, but if you look long and hard enough that might become a self esteem and value-for-money issue. HTC has been there with the Tilt and some other phones that were released with dysfunctional graphics acceleration, so they should address this quickly, if it turns out to be a firmware related cap.
The issue is very recent and still no official comment has been made by HTC or Sprint, so we'll keep an eye on the developments.

Interesting issue. I've never thought of benchmarking the ui in an Android phone. I wonder how greatly the menu framerate lead to my frustration with my old G1. Currently I'm pretty happy with my Cliq XT but I still see menu lag. Which I have to say is probably the only real productivity drawback I can think of right this second. I was hoping the 2.1 update would take care of the lag issue but now it sounds like 2.2 is the speed increase version. Too bad the Cliq XT is only scheduled for 2.1. But even in the XT the lag is so intermittent that it only causes the occasional frustration. I'd have thought a phone that had a stronger proc would run hiccup free.

Does sprint have the network to support the htc evo 4g? the phone might be 4g, but sprint does not have the network to make that phone work more effectively. Just like At&t with the iphone 3g, but has the worst calls dropping average among other carriers.

that makes no sense... you ask a question, and than give an answer which isnt acurate at all. Sprints 3G network size and roaming agreements, are what give it a huge advatange compared to At&t's smaller 3G network, So to answer your question/statement yes they have the network to support the HTC EVO 4G.
