Is the latest member of the HTC EVO family, the EVO Design 4G, compelling enough for G&E readers to upgrade?
Its screen does have a higher resolution than the original EVO 4G, it is a world phone, and it is rocking Sense 3.0 right out of the box. But the screen is also smaller, it won't be compatible with Sprint's upcoming LTE network, and it still doesn't have a kickstand.
In our latest G&E reader poll, over 88% of you said that you definitely weren't planning on getting the latest offering from Sprint and HTC, while just over 3% said you were. The rest of you were undecided.
This makes sense (no pun intended). Yes, its specs would have been considered awesome just over a year ago, but it's only mid-range now. I still think it's better than the EVO Shift, which we don't even talk about here on G&E, and I think it's a great option for someone who is turned off by the EVO 3D and prefers a slightly smaller phone.
However, it seems that most of us power users are more interested in seeing what Sprint and HTC will probably unveil later next summer. And you can guarantee that G&E will be all over it.
