Default My new phone

htc EVO 4G LTE

It has a beautiful screen, 1.5ghz dual core cpu, 1gb ram.

The hardware is great.

The software, not so much. I hate Android 4. It's so confusing, 2.3 was straightforward and buttons located well. 4.0 has buttons in both top corners that are so small my tiny hands can't even use. (I wear a size S in gloves). It is smooth and fluid, though. So that's a plus.

The internet is so....s....l.....o.....w.

My original evo I could get 117k/s. I am getting around 25k/s now. So slow the app market (now labeled google play), times out about 4 times while it loads.

I'm not too happy with my purchase. However some of it was birthday $$$. :\

Damn that sucks. Hopefully when Sprint enables the LTE in your area your experience will be much better.

I take it back, it wasn't Sprint at all. It is now FLYING!

I updated the profile, PRL, firmware and software update, and my internet is fast now. Moderately happy now, just got to get used to Android 4 (ICS).

Wow, the beats audio is amazing. It sounds better than any mp3 player (including Zen and ipod) I've heard experienced. It is great.
