Sprint’s HTC EVO

I decided to put my Windows HTC Touch Pro 2 out in the pasture and go for the much hyped “first ever 4g phone”, the HTC EVO.  Best decision ever concerning a phone!

First and foremost, this is the best phone I’ve ever had.  The software is great, the responsiveness is amazing, and it has all sorts of randomly cool features.

The Pros:

  • Great screen.
  • Integration with Google products is flawless.
  • Turn by turn navigation with Google maps.
  • FM radio.
  • Sprint TV, great during the world cup.
  • Apps like Swype, NYT, Google Voice, Google Voice Search.

The Cons:

  • Dealing with Exchange invitations, not as clean as with Windows.
  • No unified inbox like WebOS.
  • Battery hog, but all smart phones are, will need to charge it after a few hours of heavy use.
  • Not enough widgets for shortcuts and displaying vital information on the screen.
