If you like to keep up with what is going on with the latest in cellphones, you are probably aware of the latest one that is getting lots of press coverage. It’s the HTC Evo 4G, the smartphone that is about to take a giant leap above the mobile communication competition by being a full fledged commercial 4G smartphone. So what is so great about it?
Evo 4G has a display screen that is much larger than that of the iPhone, Galaxy or a Nexus One. Its 4.8 inch screen is much more touch sensitive and offers lots of room for very precise finger tapping. Also, because it is an LCD screen, the image is bright in daylight without having to worry much about glare ruining the image.
Evo operates on the Google’s Android 2.1 OS platform that has been configured especially for the HTC. The superior 4G connection will allow one to take advantage of superior quality video conferencing which the phone will offer through Qik app and will cost around$5 a month. However, the basic video conferencing app does not cost anything and will supply only VGA quality. All that is great, but let’s discuss the camera.
The camera in Evo 4G is a brilliant 8 megapixel masterpiece. There is one camera in the front of the phone, it is 1.3 megapixel and designed to be used for video calls. The camera in the back is capable of taking extraordinary good photographs and it’s great feature is the ability to make many adjustments to various parameters, such as brightness, contrast, special filters etc before taking the shot. This results in hundreds of ways to take a picture, an important and major plus for those that like to take lots of pictures. The phone is also capable of recording 720p high quality video at 25 fps which, although not the finest quality, is still pretty good.
As quickly as HTC launched its latest smartphone, the Evo 4G, the fans of Apple and Android lovers began their war of words. The war is not about whether the Evo 4G or the Apple iPhone is a better value for the money, it is actually about which of the two is the cooler device! It is true that the new Evo has some awesome features that no other mobile phone can match, but aren’t you more interested in figuring out what phone is better suited to your needs?
To begin with, Evo 4G has a screen size that is unrivaled among smartphones. I am talking about a 4.3 inch large screen that provides substantial room to perform every function possible on a smartphone. You won’t be suffering with cluttered tweets, shrunken websites, or looking at and tapping on icons bundled close together resulting in more than one being tapped on the swame tap. The iPhone 4 on the other hand has a much smaller screen than the Evo, but to its credit, does produce a better resolution of 960 x 640 pixels compared to Evo’s 800 x 480 resolution. Therefore, the Apple iPhone will produce a slightly superior image quality than the EVo. Which one do you prefer?
Evo 4G operates on the Android 2.1 OS platform which has been specially adapted to accomodate the Evo’s theme. As for the iPhone 4, it runs on the iOS 4. It is entirely possible if you are a fan of Mac computers, that you would prefer the iPhone. However, because both of these quality phones cost about the same, it may be a good idea to closely examine the options of both phones making making a decision.
Ever since the iPhone was introduced to the world by Apple it captured the world’s attention. It’s popularity and the hype surrounding it reached new heights never before seen. Since that time, other companies have come out with their own smartphones to knock the iPhone off its pedestal, such as Samsung’s Galaxy, Motorola’s Droid X or even Google’s flagship phone Nexus One. The iPhone attempted to counter the competition by coming out with successive revised versions, but now a hungry new rival has been launched to enter the battle for dominance in the world of smartphones. This one is Apple’s most serious challenge to date. Are you aware of this new challenger to the throne?
It’s HTC’s newest smartphone, the Evo 4G. HTC has already garnered lots of praise and recognition among gadget freaks with the introduction of the Legend and Desire models but with the introduction of the Evo, the excitement has taken a quantum leap forward. To begin with, Evo is able to operate in the 4G network, a feature to this day grossly underexploited by most of the existing popular models out there. However, 4G has arrived, and is about to make itself known in a big way. 4G networks will make possible a big increase in downlink speeds, even greater than that of 3G. 4G will make mobile communication much more feature loaded. Smoother video calls, superior conferencing, entertainment and news will all become commonly expected and is now readily available on this little hand held device, the Evo 4G.
Evo 4G comes with a display screen that is substantially larger that that of the iPhone 4 which provides lots more room for widgets, and viewing website content. The Evo also provides for a better video display that allow you to sit back, relax and enjoy hands free, because this model has a nicely designed kickstand to rest the device on, that places thephone in a horizontal position. There is a lot more to the list of features than discussed here, but I think You get the point.
