Review: HTC EVO Shift 4G
Form Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments 10
The EVO Shift 4G offers great software in a so-so wrapper. Personally, I don't like the weight, thickness, nor keyboard action of the EVO Shift 4G. They're just not as good as some of the EVO Shift 4G's competitors. However, if those items aren't as important as simply having a physical keyboard at all, then it's a wash.
The Sense user interface continues to be easy to navigate and is highly customizable. HTC allows users to adjust nearly every feature, screen or parameter of the EVO Shift 4G in at least some small way. Sense is speedy, doesn't hesitate, and offers solid camera and music software, in addition to its improved messaging and social powers. The camera takes good pictures for this class of devices, and the music player is slightly better than what stock Android offers.
If you're in the market for an Android phone that has WiMax and a keyboard, the EVO Shift 4G is one of the only options out there. Sure, it doesn't have quite the same sex appeal as the current crop of flagship Android devices, but not every smartphone can be a Ferrari. Some have to be Fords.
