The HTC Evo 4G LTE was recently released on Sprint in exchange for $199 with a two-year contract (the same price as the iPhone 4S). I was interested in finding out if this HTC smartphone can beat the iPhone 4S, so I decided to compare their characteristics. Check out what I discovered.
In terms of design, both smartphones impress with attractive exteriors. The Evo 4G is taller, thinner and lighter than the iPhone 4S measuring 5.31 x 2.72 x 0.32 inches and weighing 4.73 ounces. On the other hand, the iPhone 4S measures 4.52 x 2.31 x 0.37 inches and weighs 4.9 ounces. Moreover, both devices offer high resolution touchscreens able to display detailed and colorful images. The iPhone 4S comes with a 3.5-inch touchscreen with Retina Display while the Evo 4G features a 4.7-inch Super LCD touchscreen with a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution.
Under the hood, these two smartphones host powerful processors able to deliver enough power for offering an excellent user experience. The Evo 4G LTE is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The iPhone 4S comes with a 1GHz dual-core processor with 512MB of RAM and 16/32/64GB of storage. Regarding the operating systems available, you should know that the iPhone 4S runs on iOS 5 that comes packed with plenty of useful features including Siri assistant, image editor, voice command/dial and Twitter integration. The HTC Evo 4G LTE runs on Android 4.0 with the HTC Sense 4.0 UI. You will have the possibility to use document editor, SNS integration, TV-out and a few preinstalled Google apps.
Another feature that needs to be mentioned when one compares two smartphones is the camera. You need to keep in mind that both devices are equipped with two performance cameras. The Evo 4G LTE offers a 1.3MP front-facing camera designed for video calls and an 8MP rear camera equipped with LED flash, advanced camera settings and 1080p video recording capabilities. On the other hand, the iPhone 4S offers a VGA front facing camera perfect for video calls over Wi-Fi and an 8MP camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording capabilities. The multimedia department is well represented on both phones by well featured media players able to support various file formats.
On these high end devices you will find various connectivity options including A-GPS, HTML, Wi-Fi (+Hotspot), EDGE and 3G. The Evo 4G can also provide support for Adobe Flash, FM radio, NFC and 4G. Bottom line, both smartphones are able to provide a great user experience, but the HTC Evo 4G LTE is definitely the winner being equipped with a more powerful processor and a larger display.
