When i first got this phone it was great unlike my old phone but then after a year later
the phone was garbage it was super slow it had horrible battery life (one time my phone was 75% and 3-4 hours later it was dead) when i played games it was very laggy the camera was bad and then when i went on this site and looked on my phone i noticed that it was made in 2012 and i felt like an idiot getting a phone that was made in 2012 in 2013 so this phone is meh for me
Edit: I have done a few things with my phone and there are a free improvements
Still one of the BEST phones out, although it is a few months old.

Not to sure why this phone did not get as much hype as the GS3 when its build qulity and UI surpasses SAMMY... I got this because my OEVO was beat up, and it was time to upgrade and cont. with my WOW Factor status. This phone is much better then the OEVO. I wont lie when it first came out there was a few issues just like any mobile device, but with time it became Solid. Not to sure why so many people are complaing about the Battery and Camera. It has alot to do with the Users knowledge of the device and how to set things up, so you are able to get the most of it. Alot of people I have come to realise dont read the manual, or try and adjust things accordingly. This is not an iCrap people... You actually have to read to figure out how to use it properly..
HTC Evo LTE

The EVO was a great phone when it came out. There weren't really any major issue. However, poor quality control with the software updates has hurt the reputation of HTC and the EVO brand.. Very very buggy. No more HTC phones for me.

In short, the evo 4G lte has been awesome. I was debating between this or the s3 and I am sure glad I decided to pick this bad boy up. Display, camera, ui, etc is great. Only downside is the non removable battery.

best phone out
Geezy03 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
This phone was worth the wait. It is awesome and I haven't put it down yet since I purchased it on 6/9. It's really fast I love the beats audio the best. Sense 4.0 is great even though I miss the carousel feature. Camera takes exellent photos, great call quality
Best Smartphone on US Market

There was a time last year, around the launch of the Galaxy S II, that I made a sacred oath unto God that never again would I buy an HTC handset. I did this for two reasons: reason one was HTC's penchant for using TFT displays; and reason two was HTC's constant use of Qualcomm processors.
A year later, however, call me an oathbreaker and a heretic because I've bought the HTC Evo 4G LTE and haven't regretted it since.
Interestingly, I bought it for the same reasons that I, until recently, despised HTC: the S-LCD 2 panel is without equal, easily outdoing its rivals in color reproduction, brightness, and viewing angles; the Qualcomm S4 Krait is pretty darn good too.
The build quality is also fantastic, and I think of the Evo as if the One X and One S got together and had a kid: it combines the One X's beautiful screen with the One S' aluminum-unibody-with-polycarbonate-inserts. If the One X and One S are the mommy and daddy, respectively (or irrespectively, I don't care), then the Evo 4G and Evo 3D are the grandparents... or something. Confusing familial relations aside, the new Evo combines the best of both its predecessors: the kickstand from the 4G and the camera button from the 3D. Simply put, it's a wonder both to behold and to hold, and is surprisingly light and thin.
Positive qualities aside, however, there are a couple things that could be better. The first is HTC's Sense 4, which, while being extremely fluid and snappy (rivaling the UI speed of the iPhone), has problems...

will be returning this one, too many floors in it, didnt mind waiting for lte but to have a lousy product really sucks, like to put my phone on its side on nightstand w the kickstand out so it turns into an alarm clock , cant because the power cord is there. too many other flaws, battery life is terrible and i dont even surf the net that much

Evos is the s**t
phones1985 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
Ok I recieve an evo from a family member about a year ago. I say durable because the phone has fallen multiple times and still lived. I say fast cause it was, I would say very good battery life because we were good for leaving it unplugged. and I say all around good phone cause it took some lickins and kept on tickin. Evo did it for me. Imma get another one eventually, but I love my note 2 right now
Love this phone!!!

My second HTC phone. First was the original EVO - good phone. This new EVO is awesome! Fast UI and great features. I'm using it more and my laptop less because of all the features. I've found myself really dependent on this phone.
My Favorite HTC Phone Yet
roxielc26 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
i got this phone when it first came out and i was blown away with all the features of this phone. i have used all htc phone except a couple samsung phones like the moment, epic 4g, and the new s3 and they were all horrible slow freezing phones. i never have problems with my htc phones. a lot of the bad reviews i see here are user error not using it right. like the first one that appears saying the camera is horrible but yet all my photos that i take with this phone look proffessional and i just point and shoot thats the point of the dedicated camera button. the beats audio is fantastic especially with beats headphones, the only thing that upsets me is when jelly bean arrived it took the more girly skins away which helped me make it more my phone, but overall BEST PHONE SPRINT HAS!!!!

Having been a loyal Samsung user, I came to HTC after having several bad samsung phones in a row. I was initially impressed with the htc's looks and better connectivity than I was having with the samsung. While enjoying the better connectivity, I have to say that I am extremely disappointed with the camera which had such rave reviews. After much experimentation and consulting with sprint and htc, it just appears that the camera is what it is....and that is the worst camera I've used since disposables. I went on a trip shortly after getting the camera and didn't take another camera along because this camera was so raved about.....a whole trip through the beautiful SW USA and I got one picture that was acceptable. The colors were extremely disappointing and the vast majority are really grainy and out of focus. And this is not user stupidity. I spent a great deal of time experimenting with settings and using the highest resolution settings. and that is another downside, is that this is not a point and shoot camera, each shot requires different settings to be set which do not stay set so you have to reset each shot you take in many cases. Yes, there a lot of options on this phone's camera which can be interesting but it takes a lot of setting to get set up for each shot, which is a major downside to this camera.
The other extremely disappointing thing is that there is no memo on the htc, so you can't save a memo and paste in text or email. On my samsung it was so easy to...

Wonderful phone BUT....
dollface918 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
This is an amazing phone, and it was Soo hard to send it back but my issue with this is not the phone but the Sprint Network. Basically it's the only one that sells this phone and it doesnt do justice to how wonderful this phone is. I bought it with the idea that Sprint said on July 15th, in Houston (where I reside) the internet was going to be fast (at 4g speeds). I bought it for a trial period and I only noticed it got strong 3g speeds and when I'm at work, it barely had any signal at all. It fluctuates and it only get's strong when you are in an outside area (which defeats the purpose because Im usually driving). Honestly, I don't know how others deal with it but I expect my smartphone to be reliable. That's why I sent it back.
As for the phone itself, my only CON is that the battery life is very low. It's suppose to sustain to 7 hours talking time but without doing anything, the battery dies anyway (and I don't even have any open apps). Basically by mid day (if you use it a lot like me), it can't go a day without charging. As for the PROS, it's easy to understand, the screen is really big & typing was not a problem. Picture quality, it's good, I did't use it very much but when I transfered my pictures to the phone, they looked amazing. The one thing I miss about this phone is that it was so conviniently customized on each screen. For exp, it had one page for Bookmarks (just one click and it takes you there), contacts, your favorite people, just one click and it...

Money was well spent. I upgraded from a great phone (EVO 3D) to the BEST phone. I really thought about buying the S3 but I felt like I was cheating on my EVO. I can't put this phone down and my wife is getting jealous. Thank you HTC, you've out done yourself this time.

Its Really awesome
PradaMir has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
The evo 4G LTE is really a great phone the display is just gorgeous the camera is mesmerizing and the processing speed is speedy. It has a wonderful design to me, i think they could have made it trully outstanding if they would have gave it a little bigger of a battery maybe like a 2400MAPH something that would really blow your socks off or maybe a 10MP Camera or a water resistance something that other phone would never be able to compete with but all in all a wonderful device definitely worth the money and if you have the Evo 3D its a Great upgrade minus the 3D.

Love this phone!
absolutali has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Simple, fast, clear, great camera, great sound quality, great phone. Different from the original Evo 4G, but took no time at all to get used to. Very glad it came with the built in kick-stand, though I had to get a case that had the kick-stand built into it because the case covered the original kick stand.
