Review: HTC EVO Shift 4G

Browser

The browsing experience on the EVO Shift 4G is really no different than that of any other Android phone running 2.2 Froyo. You can use your finger to navigate around web pages directly on the screen or use the d-pad on the EVO Shift 4G's keyboard if the device is open.

Flash content worked pretty well, and most normal in-line video played back as intended. You're still not going to be able to stream movies from Hulu, but you'll be able to watch (eventually, because Flash is so slow) a large bulk of the video that's embedded on web sites.

Customize

Thanks in part to HTC's Sense software, the EVO Shift 4G can be customized by end users more than most. Wallpapers of all kinds can be customized, as can the live (animated) wallpapers. Ringtones, alerts, picture IDs, etc., can all be adjusted. Because the EVO Shift 4G has 7 home screens, users can practically load so much content as to be able to avoid the main menu altogether. The widgets, shortcuts and apps spread across those screens make for a highly personalized experience. Throw in the extra, customizable Scenes that Sense UI offers, and the sky is the limit when it comes to making the EVO Shift 4G your own.
