Say It's Not So.

It appears the wrap-up section was a little rough on the beaver.

As an original Evo owner since day one, I have not been more happier with a phone. It has performed excellently and kept up with the Jones' for the last two years. However, time has taken a toll on the charging port and I need to retire the old girl. I have waited for HTC's new offering of the HTC LTE.

I'm sorry Eric, but I am taken back by your review. It appears you're more angry at Sprint's 3G network and lack of LTE and have indirectly taken it out on the device by telling people to wait. I am sure many others are in a similar position as myself of hardware issues that have been waiting.

I didn't have WiMAX when the Evo came out and I will not have LTE as this new HTC product launches. It does not sway my decision in purchasing the product for what it actually is. The original Evo grew into the expansion just as this version will.

I understand the speed differences and comparisons between the carriers that could render annoyance, but you have essentially conveyed the message that do not purchase this phone UNLESS it has immediate access to 4G. With no new WiMAX phones coming out, most Sprint customers will either have to stick to a 3G phone only or move to LTE regardless of availability. Sprint's LTE is in fact, right around the corner and with most mainstream individuals holding on to their phones for two years, many are now eligible and ready for another round of a monster device. Why not take the plunge on this phone that is equipped for the coming?

If I'm going to sign another two year contract, I want the best of what I can get at time of purchase. And not even the iPhone will be able to get LTE immediately. So where is the fairness?
