What You Need to Know

  • This is one of the slimmer phones we've seen with an oversized screen.
  • It’s a little thinner than the EVO (though the camera kind of sticks out on the side), and a little lighter.
  • If you've used an EVO or any other HTC phone with Android, you'll know how to use this and it's just as fluid and fast as any other Android phone.
  • Tapping, scrolling, and swiping is responsive, and of course, you can pinch and zoom.
  • It's got HTC Sense widgets like news feeds, social media streams, and universal contacts, and it has more of a personalized feel.
  • We also like how the notification tray has recent apps.
  • This is one of the fastest Android phones we've used, and it'll tear through the most important apps.
  • The camera is really good; pictures are detailed and clear in normal light, they look good in low light, and the flash doesn't blow out your subject.
  • You can also put different effects on pictures like distortion, negative, and vignette, which is something we haven't seen before.
  • Video also looks good, and you can record in 720p.
  • AT&T has upgraded most of their network to 4G already, and this phone can take advantage of that, although speeds aren't quite as fast as we want them to be.
  • In our tests, Sprint's and Verizon's 4G were faster than AT&T’s by about 3 or 4 megabits.
  • At least it's ready for the next generation of mobile broadband, though.


  • $60 with a contract on Amazon Wireless.
