Review: HTC Evo 4G
I take my DROID over this anyday!
When it worked well, Sprint's 4G network offered fast, high quality video streaming from YouTube, faster Web browsing and, eventually, even video conferencing, a first for a device in the U.S. But most of the time it did not work well, and it couldn't even top the 3G speeds I saw on my Google Nexus One. Sprint says this will gradually improve, but until the WiMAX network is reliably much faster than the 3G options out there, does Sprint have a right to charge $10 extra per month for the privilege of using the HTC Evo 4G? It's a catch 22, since more revenue means a better network down the road, but the network isn't good enough to be worth the extra money ...
Sprints 4g vs. Verizons 4G = oh wait, there is none for Verizon
Sprint wins, k thanks bye.
Will it help Sprint is the real question.
But bask away!
Furthermore it's been said a hundred times, the $10 is for truly unlimited 3G and 4G ("premium" data) since it's been shown that without *true* unlimited 3G it is not hard to cruise past 5GB on this thing even without the hotspot feature.
Your quote at CTIA 2010:
"4G, we can offer because we can produce a gigabyte cheaper, we actually offer more. A good analogy that has been used for 4G, and 3G, and 2G, is kind of moving from Dial-up data at home, to low speed DSL, to a cable modem and then to faster speeds. Or in TV terms, standard def versus high def, but if you looked at those models, you paid more for faster speeds. You paid more for the HD channels. In essence what we're doing with 4G is we're throwing in the HD channels for free, because we're not charging any more and we're giving customer's more."
I created this website regarding the $10 fee. Ple...
Do you also have a website for the $10 that Verizon Wireless now charges on ALMOST ALL of their phones??
And if you actually looked at Cell's post, you would see their Gravatar is from one of the many sites that sprang up hating the $10 change)
The phones that require data:
LG EnV Touch
LG 8360 (LOL, like people would buy it now)
LG Chocolate Touch
(You can put the alias2 or rogue here.. but Good luck finding a store that offers them)
Phones that don't:
LG Cosmos (Full QWERTY)
Samsung Intensity (Full QWERTY)
Casio Rock (waterproof)
Didn't know what a "gravatar" is, so I googled it.
Still not sure how a little icon was supposed to tell me anything about his website.
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but if you add the VZW phones that require a $30 data plan to your list, then there are far more phones require an extra feature than ones that don't. I simply meant that I think it's crazy to charge $10 for data on phones that aren't actually true data devices.
I still can't get over the stink about the $10 for the Evo.
News flash! Sprint doesn't charge you extra for data, or nav, or tv, or texting, or nights starting at 7 pm....... The list goes on and on.
