10 minutes? Maybe if you shut off the 4G and dim the backlit screen you could keep it going long enough to switch your car insurance to Geico.
Why is nobody talking about this? HTC Incredible is lucky to last a whole day, and it has a considerably smaller AMOLED screen that, pixel pixel, requires a lot less power than the backlit TFT screen on the EVO. Then you have the 4G radio to power, oh, and also the 3G radio,too. And then the power-wasting Sense UI.
This phone is tempting, but the more I think of it the more it seems just a over-packed feature hog that does everything, but nothing well, or for very long.
So far I love everything about the EVO and since my birthday and Father's Day are in the proximity of it's release, I think I'd love to let my wife and kids know about this. But is there any reason that I should just hold out and wait to see what Microsoft have up their sleeves with Windows Mobile 7? Or follow my gut and go with the EVO? Do you think by October (WinMo 7 release) Microsoft will have fallen too far behind the game? What do you guys think?
Just pointing out that the Evo is gonna be a beast!! This phone crushes the iPhone in every other aspect other than internal memory and apps, not to mention being on Sprint's 4G network. So while all you iPhone lovers are overpaying for service and a bunch of apps, I'll be spending $69.99 on an awesome phone. It's really good to see how Sprint finally came through this time! Let's get this beast on the market!
Can sprint market this thing so the masses flock to it??? probably not the continuation of NOT adding subs is on their horizon. I think they should just stick to pimping Boost because their goose is cooked. Cool ass phone but sprint will mess it up like they always do.
Im a serious Gamer ( as oppposed to a comical one) Now the Evo will be able to mifi 8 devices on the 4G network but what type of gaming is it capable of running. Can anyone share a link of the 4G capabilities or something of that nature? Would appreciate it.
I've been following the forums on several different websites, including Sprint's own forums...and everywhere the rumor is that April 16th was the debut for this phone. WHERE IS THIS DEBUT???!! I haven't seen anything in regards to the EVO's release date, price and plan required. Does anyone have an update on this? This is so frustrating that Sprint is doing nothing after Verizon just released the Incredible yesterday. WAKE UP SPRINT!!!
