HTC is on a launching spree with a new handset launched every other day and this week its the HTC EVO 4G+ which is almost similar to the HTC EVO 3D in terms of design but when we talk about features and functionality then its quite different. This is a GSM HSPA+ handset along with WiBro connectivity with very high internet speed connectivity.
Next its a 4.3″ qHD display running on a 1.2 Ghz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor along with 1Gb RAM, 1 GB ROM and an awesome 8 Mp of Camera which is capable to record 1080p videos. The front facing camera is also available for video chat along with other regular options like 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, microUSB connector. The phone is running on Android 2.3 OS which surely seems to be bad selection because this has to be upgraded to the latest possible OS in order to become one of the top-selling handset.
We are pretty sure that even if these companies claim that the camera on the phone can record 1080p videos these wont really be of HD quality because you cannot really expect awesome videos like the ones which can be recorded on camcorders. All of these options like HD Videos, WiBro connectivity etc are sales tactics and nothing which are really worth the money to the consumers who end up paying $600 – $800 for these large sized smart phones.
Overall we are not really impressed with this handset because there is no point HTC should be launching new handset every now and then rather than focus on a very few models which can become the best in the industry. Apple has proven to be the best in that case by just coming up with one handset and putting all the R&D into it. The pricing of the HTC EVO 4G is not yet announced but the speculations are that it would be around $600 without contract.
