HTC EVO 4G SmartPhone Review

In 2002, RIM launched the original smartphone: Blackberry. It revolutionized businesses that could now be completely connected while on the go, making Blackberry as influential as it is today. In 2007 the first iteration of the iPhone hit the market, thus beginning the smartphone craze. Then in 2008, Google released their open source Android OS. Every wireless service provider is vying for the consumer's money, and to get the money, the provider's must have the greatest technology to woo the consumer. HTC's EVO 4G smartphone is the latest attempt to gain more of the consumer market share.

The HTC EVO 4G (from this point forward known as the EVO) employs a 1GHz Snapdragon QSD8650 processor, 512MB of LP-DDR, 4.3" 800x480 TFT LCD capacitive touchscreen, 8MP/720p digital camera, and is the first 4G phone on the market with the makings of a new powerhouse to destroy the iPhone monster. As for the design, HTC did everything they could to draw your attention to the gorgeous 4.3" screen that gives the EVO its large size. This includes removing all buttons from the front and replacing them with touch sensitive controls.


The HTC EVO 4G smartphone is poised to be a powerful multipurpose device with the ability to work and entertain in a quick and efficient manner on its large 4.3" screen and customizable Google Android 2.2 'Froyo' O/S.
