Msnbc: HTC's Evo 4G phone is fast, powerful and fun to use — as long as your heart isn't set on tapping into the speedier new network it was designed for.
The Evo 4G, $199 with a two-year contract and rebate, is the first smartphone made for Sprint's fourth-generation wireless network, which is available in Seattle and a few dozen other cities today. But the vast majority of the time, the phone was connected to the current-generation 3G network. It turns out there are gaps in the coverage area, and my house and my office are both in that 4G-free zone.
TheVerge - The HTC Evo 4G is perhaps Sprint's most important phone ever. When it was released in 2010, it was Sprint's best phone by a long shot, and one of only a few truly great Android devices. Two years later, Sprint's in dire need of another winner, and it's searching far and wide: the company paid dearly to carry the iPhone, and is also now selling the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Sprint's next flagship phone, though, might be another Evo. HTC recently released its One series of devices, the One X (available on AT&T) and the One S (for T-Mobile). Sprint gets the Evo 4G LTE, a variant of the One X with some Evo-style design and feature tweaks, but all the same specs that made us think the One X is among the best smartphones ever made.
Engadget - The EVO 4G LTE is an excellent option for Sprint users interested in the latest and greatest, but it's marred by the network's frustrating limitations.
