The HTC EVO 4G LTE is Sprint's version of the HTC One X. The EVO differs a lot from the other versions on the outside but only a little bit on the inside, and this is one instance where the real beauty lies on the inside.

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.
