Just as “The King” left Cleveland the king will eventually leave Sprint, but, as for right now they own the best player in the game. The HTC Evo is one of those phones that did everything right. They took the body and hardware of the HTC HD2 and juiced it up. 5MP camera good enough? Nope, we need an 8. 1230mAh battery big enough? Nope, we need a 1500. 480p video recording good enough? Nope, we need 720. Take all those improvements and add Android 2.1 in the mix and you cause the Smartphone world to stand on their heads. If you are on Sprints network and you don’t own this phone, you should be shot.

The only real issue with this phone is the network it’s on. The 4G is only available in small areas around the country but hopefully soon that will change soon. The edges of the phone can get a bit smudgy because of the finish but beauty sometimes comes with work.
