Poll: Who among you are sticking with HTC and Sprint?
Note: This question is obviously directed towards our Good and EVO readers who have stuck around for the long haul, but of course all you other Pocketables readers are welcome to participate if the question is relevant for you, too!
There’s been lots of talk leading up to the release of the HTC One on Sprint and other carriers around the world. While some participants in our forums wondered whether or not the release of the One signified the end of the EVO line, it seems more likely that this is indeed the case.
- There was no mid-range EVO released after the EVO 4G LTE. The EVO Shift 4G and EVO Design 4G were both released about half a year after the original EVO 4G and the EVO 3D.
- There are no leaks about an upcoming EVO – we’ve always gotten leaks about new EVOs by now.
- It wouldn’t make sense for Sprint to release the HTC One in April, and then the next EVO in May or June, which has always been the timeframe for major EVO releases.
- HTC seems pretty dead set against carrier branding going forward, which is what the EVO was.
This means different things for different people. Some of you have expressed in the forum and in the comments section here on Pocketables that you intend to stay with HTC. The HTC One seems to have everything you want for your next phone, and you’ve been pleased based on your previous experiences with the EVO line.
Others see things differently. Whether you’re sick of Sprint’s congested network and broken promises of 4G, or whether you have had it with HTC’s lackluster developer support and sporadic update schedule – or whether it’s a combination of both – many of you are moving on.
So I want to know: how many of you are staying true to HTC and Sprint, and who among you are leaving for (hopefully) better things? Let us know in the poll below!
