Software upgrade fixes EVO 4G's frame rate cap problem and other minor bugs

Software upgrade fixes EVO 4G's frame rate cap problem and other minor bugs
Back during the hot days of summer, we told you about the 30fps framerate cap that held back the EVO 4G. If you recall, because that framerate was the best that the device could handle when the HDMI port is active, HTC decided to keep the rate even when the port is not being used. After some negative customer comments about the cap, it was decided that the problem would be rectified.

This past week, a firmware upgrade rolled out that took care of the framerate cap. To make sure, Engadget ran a test on an EVO 4G which showed a framerate of 52fps during a benchmark test.

We had reported in the middle of last week that the upgrade would fix a calendar event problem that EVO 4G users were experiencing, as well as correct problems the phone had with syncing multiple Gmail accounts. We are happy to report that both of those bugs have been exterminated by the firmware upgrade.

I'm sick to death of this phone! I bought it with 2.1 and it was perfect! Put it up to 2.2 and can barely even use it anymore... The messages are all out of order, keyboard only opens half the time, keyboard sound turns on and off by itself, YouTube widget doesnt work anymore just says connection error, scrolling on the browser is too slow or too fast never normal, that's the software issues. Hardware has horrible light leakage from the capacitive buttons, the charger port is loose and phone is only 1 month old, speaker for calls is really muffled, camera lens is scratched all up due to it resting on the lens, the back cover won't fully snap into place anymore so one side is higher than the other.... I just want my Palm Pre back that I sold a week ago. It sucks.

cotyb09, you need to back your phone up, and do a factory reset from the settings option. Trust me once you do a factory reset, restore your data and your phone should work great. Also have to updated your flash player? If all especially fails, call HTC, they GIVE A 1 YEAR WARRANTY for Free. No $100 deductible, no fees. They pay for everything. I love my Evo, i have keyboard lag problems so I'm getting ready to have htc send me a new Evo. I talked to them and they said if i keep having problems i can call them and get a replacement sent right out to me for free.

The Sprint corporate repair stores also honor the 1 year manufacturer's warantee. But honestly, I would have exchanged it as soon as I noticed anything like what was mentioned wrong with it.
