Review: HTC EVO 4G LTE for Sprint
Replying to: Say It's Not So. by Slammer
Re: Say It's Not So.
Yes, the mobile broadband speeds are outright pathetic, and that's Sprint's fault, not HTC's. The point I was trying to make is that for some users, fast mobile broadband is just as vital as a good screen or a good camera.
If you've gotten used to using a WiMax (or other) 4G phone over the years, dialing back to 3G speeds can be frustrating and lead to a negative user experience. I used the One X and EVO 4G LTE side-by-side for 5 days. The comparison is like a race between a turtle and Danica Patrick in a Formula 1 race car. It's not even close. When I am in a hurry and want to get stuff done, I want the fastest phone -- and network -- possible.
Please understand, I wasn't saying "dont buy the EVO 4G." I was merely suggesting that if mobile broadband is the most important feature to you, then it might be worth waiting. That's all.
I re-wrote the last two paragraphs of the conclusion in an attempt to get my message across more clearly in a less negative way.
