Android Ice Cream Sandwich Operating System

The HTC EVO V 4G runs the Android 4.0 operating system (dubbed Ice Cream Sandwich), which adds powerful new ways of communicating and sharing while improving on the best Android features: easy multitasking, rich notifications, customizable home screens, resizable widgets, and more.

The new Ice Cream Sandwich interface features an onscreen navigation bar that replaces the hardware buttons for Back, Home, and Menu found with older Android-powered phones. And with Google+ integration, you can video chat with groups of up to 9 friends as well as easily upload and share photos and videos. Other features include:

Face Unlock

You can now unlock your phone with just your face using the Face Unlock option. It takes advantage of the front-facing camera and state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to register a face during setup and then to recognize it again when unlocking the device. Just hold your phone in front of your face to unlock (or use a backup PIN).

And the lock screen now lets you do more without unlocking. From the slide lock screen, you can jump directly to the camera for a picture or pull down the notifications window to check for messages. When listening to music, you can even manage music tracks and see album art.

Home Screen Folders

Quickly access related apps right from the home screen by organizing apps and shortcuts into folders--just drag one app onto another to create a folder.


Multitasking is even easier and more visual in Android 4.0. The Recent Apps button lets you jump instantly from one task to another using the list in the System Bar. The list pops up to show thumbnail images of apps used recently--tapping a thumbnail switches to the app.

Voice Input

The new voice engine in Android 4.0 lets you dictate the text you want, for as long as you want, using the language you want. You can speak continuously for a prolonged time, even pausing for intervals if needed, and dictate punctuation to create correct sentences. As the voice input engine enters text, it underlines possible dictation errors in gray. After dictating, you can tap the underlined words to quickly replace them from a list of suggestions.

Virgin Mobile Prepaid Pricing

With Virgin Mobile, you can pay only for the calling time you use. You can choose a monthly Beyond Talk plan with unlimited data and messaging and just the right amount of talk minutes for your needs.

Virgin Mobile customers have access to the Sprint Nationwide Network, reaching more than 278 million people across the United States (see a map of Virgin Mobile's coverage area).

After reading so many reviews both negative and positive I decided to make the move. My local Radio Shack had a limited time promotion on the HTC Evo 3D for Virgin mobile and knowing the problems I was having with my Motorola Triumph I had to make the move. Especially since I would have 30 Days to return it back to the store. Here are the facts:

GPS on the evo connects in 10 seconds and that's in my house (I use waze app all the time)
Triumph can't connect in my house and usually takes more than 5 minutes to connect.

Audio is louder and sounds better on the HTC Evo (especially with poweramp app)
Triumph has a problem when you unplug earphones and replug in the sound jumps.

HTC Evo has no lag when pressing buttons or apps
Triumph has lag and sometime you must press 3 times

Call quality is better on the HTC Evo and testing this in low signal areas I haven't missed any calls
Triumph sounds muffled

HTC Evo 3d pictures give me a headache, 2d pictures are very nice, I don't see a major difference between either phone.

Battery on the HTC Evo beats the Triumph hands down. And I like the option to add a larger battery if needed. I use 2x battery saver app.

Sent a text message in a low signal area and 1 time received a radio interference message, but the text still went through.

3G is noticeably faster (I used speedtest.net) with my old Motorola and the HTC next to each other. I'm sure this is because of the dual processor and improved memory in the HTC.

4G is insane! 7,485 kbps download.

This is by far the best phone for virgin mobile!! I didn't buy it through amazon, I went to best buy but I have had no problems with this phone..great buy at 300$ because the monthly rates are so low. This phone finaly allows you to use the real sprint network and not the throttled VM network. I get 2.5MB with the 3G network!!! I'm on long island in New York right outside the city . Sound quality is awesome with headphones!!! Better than iPod, screw beats audio this sound enhancer is incredible!! If your worried about the battery life, check out my review on the 3980 mah extended battery for this phone..it is truly amazing! I ask if this review helped at all please check like..thank :)

Edit Jan 2014: Last night I was over at a friend's house. Everyone had their tablets and cell phones. Of all the units in the room, I was the ONLY one who couldn't get good reception-- either on WiFi or 3G.

Today I tried to top up my time on their site. The response: "We cannot accept a credit card to top up time. Please purchase a top-up card at a local store." Are they SERIOUS? I've had no credit card problems, I was using a debit card with plenty in the bank (a card I've used many times before on VM) so why this sudden new policy.

Sorry... this phone is just lousy, and so is Virgin Mobile "service". I'm cancelling my service as of today and switching to a different company. This is literally one of the worst companies on the market-- and with some of the poorest products and service I've seen anywhere.

Back to the original review:

This is a potentially great phone, unfortunately with several fatal flaws:

At the top of the list: "RADIO INTERFERENCE RESOURCE SHORTAGE. CAUSE CODE: 64. ERROR CLASS: 2" This is a widespread and well-known error among the VM HTC Evo community. What this error means is that your phone is now inoperative. It won't make or receive phone calls, won't send or receive text messages. The only known solution to this is to go through the cumbersome process of totally resetting the phone. For some users "Update the PRL" seems to do the trick... a process that takes a couple of minutes. This problem occurs often... for some users weekly... for others once or several times a day. What this error boils down to is that the phone has lost all contact with all communication towers to the point that it has lost its identity and ability to communicate-- even if it comes back in contact with said towers.

Wow, it's been an interesting year to be a Virgin Mobile customer. I've been on this carrier for years and years, and mainly have had to put up with third-rate (or some would say, fourth-rate) devices. That, I figured, is the price you pay for... well, price. VM was a fraction the cost of any other carrier and all I did with the phone was make calls.

Earlier this year however, VM launched their Beyond Talk program and while more expensive than their old (now branded 'Pay-Lo') service it was still a darn good deal. And furthermore, they had some phones that were actually pretty darn decent. I sprung for it and got an Optimus V, and interestingly started using my phone for things other than making calls. I now can't really live without it, which I guess is a word of warning for those that don't want to be tethered to an expensive chunk of circuitry, but it's just too handy not to have now. With a modern Android smartphone you can do pretty much anything you would do on a small laptop- plus make calls and texts without wi-fi. I guess the peak of the madness was when I set up my phone console to deploy my company's website. That was more just to see if it was possible, but it shows just some of the things you can do with one of these guys. It's also replaced my portable GPS, alarm clock, notepad, and serves as a wifi hotspot when necessary.

Now, VM has really started to outdo themselves with their device lineup. These are pretty darn new- the EVO V 4G is essentially the Sprint EVO 3D which was released in 2011. It's not the latest, greatest smartphone out there but it's pretty darn close to it. At the current price with no contract, it's a darn good device.
