Re: Some love for the EVO 4G LTE

I am very excited about this. Hearing that Sprint is trying to make their LTE be the best with HD voice is great news. I will stand by my words when I say that right now Sprint may be cutting some costs but when they finish this LTE network I think that VZW will have a challenge. Sprint knows what they are doing and people are judging them to hard right now. I have faith that Sprint will make a super powerful network with this LTE.

In fairness, I linked to S4GRU.com. They have excellent 4G info over there.

Hey, I'm in Fort Worth! LTE should have better coverage because the LTE towers have the radios up on the pole near the antennas rather than down on the ground. This means about 20% stronger signal because of less signal loss.

Here's a Sprint NV tower after the upgrade. The long things are the antennae. The boxes behind them are the radios.

You have been rockin an EVO for 2+ years?

LOL I thought this launched June of 2010? (When I bought mine and I got mine the second day they were available at the store).

I think max we could be rockin an EVO is 1 year 10 months.

Re: Some love for the EVO 4G LTE

I feel that this is a worthy predecessor to the original EVO 4G so I will be upgrading. I'm mostly like the fact that it has SD card support, dedicated camera button, and of course the kickstand is back. I'm not too worried about LTE coming to my area because eventually it will.
