While writing the HTC EVO 4G review, the first thing I noticed was that it is a huge phone. The device is a bit taller as compared to the iPhone and a wider too. The thin chassis means that this device is quite comfortable in the hand. Also, you will...

Despite my noticeable excitement over the mobile device, there are some drawbacks, and I am not talking about the limited 4G network because that’s just a natural growing pain. First, the device’s battery life is good, unless you use the 4G....

The EVO's high-end specs, excellent performance, and top-notch feature lineup are exciting, but the poor battery life sadly diminishes the value of the product. Some of the EVO's most compelling differentiators—such as the large screen, 4G...
