Regret Buying It More And More Everyday
wildbillbfc has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
My girlfriend and I have both had this phone since April 2011, I've been regretting buying them since about May 2011. The screen is absolutely not scratch resistant, my girlfriend is rough on phones but this is by far the easiest to destroy we've ever had. She scratched her screen left and right, then shattered it when it fell of the bedside table onto the CARPET! The picture quality is below average even on full hd streaming video, the reception is mediocre. The internet is quite possibly the worst out of every phone I've ever had, its terribly slow on 3G, 4G, and WIFI. The UI is the worst definitely, I've had to resort to GoLauncher, because the HTC Sense launcher has to reload every time you go to the home screen and its extremely basic. I am a heavy user of every aspect of my phone, I only use a computer to when I absolutely can't use my phone to do something, and i have never had battery life anywhere near the ones reported in the specs. If i leave my phone untouched for 24 hours it will be dead in 12 or less, and i am very avid about proper battery preservation! The display is small especially being released in an era of big screened phones. All in all, I would never ever buy this again, i would buy a trackphone before I would ever buy another HTC, if you are looking for something just to text your friends 24/7 by all means this is the phone for you, but if you use your phone in any part of your daily life, STAY AWAY

I love this phone.

I upgraded from a Blackberry so I'm sure that's one of the reasons I love this phone. I wish I would have gone with a different service provider. This phone is speedy and I am surprised at the life of the battery considering what I do with this phone.

HTC Evo Shift 4G is the best phone I've owned so far

This phone is 10x better than the Samsung Intercept I've had from Virgin Mobile & that phone sucks completely. I'm glad I have this phone. The text input is pretty amazing, bright screen unlike the Intercept & a better display. Very responsive which is also a plus. It takes pretty good pictures.

The phone does most of what i would like it to do, and i can work around the rest. I dont use the keyboard as much as i thought i would. I like the design, a little stubby. I like the look of the new software, can get a little laggy if you dont keep an eye on your app downloading and internet cache.

a bit slow

i had this phone for a while and i noticed that it feels kinda funny in your hand and also it seems to freeze very often. I think it was drawn up hastily and built even quicker, if they took there time it would have been a much better phone. I also thought that the battery life would be longer.

GREAT battery, GREAT everything!

I sold my Samsung Epic 4G for this phone, and am 100% impressed! This phone is amazingly smooth, very fast loading apps, and the slide out keyboard NEVER lags the screen upon opening. With my Samsung I used to have to wait for the phone to recognize I opened the slider, this phone is instant! The battery lasts 24 hours if I use the phone constantly to play games and use apps. If I hardly use it it will last a day and a half or more. BEST PHONE I've bought yet!
