The Sprint HTC EVO 4G has a nice little pile of issues hanging around it right now, but really, what device doesn’t right out of the box? Well, EVO lovers, an OTA (over-the-air) update could be hitting your handsets soon with some fixes to a handful of issues you may be experiencing.
The rumored update should include WiFi fixes, (which may mean WiFi N becoming enabled, but if it’s not, you can always do it yourself), better battery management, and better Exchange email support. Many EVO users will surely be happy to see the additional fixes coming with the update, yet it’s probably not the update they are really waiting for (ahem, Froyo, cough). Android 2.2 “Froyo” could be weeks, or months away, and the only people who don’t care about the Froyo update are probably oblivious to what Froyo can do for them – don’t let that be you.
The HTC EVO 4G may be the coolest HTC device on the block, but the big-screened Android phone has received some criticism from people thinking it’s not yet ready for the masses. Add to that the fact that Sprint’s 4G coverage, although expanding, is not rolled out in most parts of the country, and you can see why some users are complaining that EVO is not ready for prime time.
Whatever people may think, The EVO is most certainly the best device that’s ever graced the carrier, and in due time, it should suit the users needs just fine. The EVO is still an great phone and should make anyone happy (who likes freedom). Throw in some fixes, and some working 4G, and this device may soon see a rebirth of sorts. I’m just hoping the update will already come pre-installed once the white EVO finally becomes available.
Although this wouldn’t come in the form of an OTA update, I’d love to see Sprint drop the stupid $10 data fee for users who aren’t in a 4G coverage area. Why make customer’s pay a fee that you can’t seem to provide them with fast enough? Why, Sprint?
Anything you’re wishing to come from the update?
