Hands on with the HTC EVO 4G LTE

Hands on with the HTC EVO 4G LTE
Initial impressions can make a big statement, and initially we really like the HTC EVO 4G LTE.  The One X variant has a few new tricks up it's sleeve, not the least of which is the ultra-sturdy, bright red kickstand that adorns the back.  In case you're not familiar with Sprint's new flagship device, the EVO 4G LTE has a 720p 4.7" SuperLCD 2 display, 8 megapixel back side illuminated f2.0 camera with a dedicated image processing chip, Beats Audio HD voice capabilities all wrapped in a unibody aluminum chassis and powered by the latest dual-core Snapdragon S4 clocked at 1.5GHz.

The size will no doubt be a selling point for some and a drawback for others, but with such a slim profile the wide and tall EVO 4G LTE felt very comfortable to hold.  The anodized aluminum finish is pleasant and adds some grip, while the glossy plastic has some surprising tackiness itself.  The display is just amazingly beautiful, sharp and natural.  Images are crisp and vibrant without the oversaturation found in AMOLED panels.  Sense 4.0 runs beautifully on top of Ice Cream Sandwich and we're loving the more stripped down Sense.  It is obvious that HTC put a lot of time into this device not only into the hardware of the EVO 4G LTE, but also into the software.  We will be putting the phone through its paces here shortly, so let us know what you think and check back soon for a full review of the HTC EVO 4G LTE!
