Android Ice Cream Sandwich Operating System
The HTC EVO Design 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
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.
Boost Mobile Shrinkage
The longer you stay, the less you pay
Welcome to Shrinkage - an easy way to save. Here's how it works: For every six on-time payments, Boost will lower your monthly payment by $5.
While it's best to make regular on-time payments each month, payments do not have to be consecutive. If you miss a payment, you do not have to start over. The on-time payments made to the account will still be credited toward your next savings milestone.
New customers simply need to activate on a Monthly Unlimited with Shrinkage plan. Existing customers must visit "My Account" to sign up and receive savings.
|Plans with Shrinkage||After Six On-Time Payments||After 12 On-Time Payments||After 18 On-Time Payments|
|Android Monthly Unlimited||$50||$45||$40|
|BlackBerry Monthly Unlimited||$55||$50||$45|
Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), also known as CMAS, is a part of a national alerting system called IPAWS (Integrated Public Alert and Warning System) that enables emergency management officials to rapidly disseminate the warnings and safety information via text alerts to wireless phones based on the phones’ geographic location. The Federal Emergency Management Agency or FEMA is responsible for receiving the alerting information and forwarding the alerts to participating wireless carriers such as Sprint. Such alerts may come from the President of the United States; the National Weather Service, state or county public safety officials. This system is integrated into the same national alerting services that serve television and radio today.

I love the camera it is wonderful. The one on the front isn't as good but if you set a 2 second times you can easily take the picture of yourself as well.
I must admit I drop the poor thing quite often :( BUT it has been holding up and doing great I bought a case and it has not a scratch or a dent on it.
Its very nice and can be personalized to fit you
I use ovoo on my phone and it shows up pretty clear and I have lots of fun seeing friend and family while away at college
It allows me to view my school work on my phone. I can open XL, Word and Powerpoints on here its pretty efficient
After downloading the dolphin browser this thing is unstoppable and does things VERY fast.
I just love this phone and actually decided to get this over an iphone. I personally feel iphones are over rated and this phone is better. You can expand the space by upgrading the memory card. While it doesn't have Siri you can still download a VERY similar app with a different name. I am also able to use and access emoji's on here as well. My email comes right to me.
Its just a great phone and my bill is $40 a month you can not beat that anywhere
CALL QUALITY, LOG, & CONTACTS
Voice quality on both ends is average. It may be enhanced with a good headset. The speakerphone is terrible **weak on a call or audio playback. The call history log is virtually limitless. Typing on the numeric virtual keypad, the phone bank searches for the full ten digits in the call bank or contacts. The keypad can be hidden by tapping the icon in lower left corner. During a call, the screen locks while pulled to your face and unlocks when extended away. Contacts can receive multiple labels, specific ringtones, be blocked or routed to voicemail and organized into groups. Save your contacts to microSD as VCF files and send to your next Android. RadioShack and other stores also have devices that assist in address book transfer from phone to phone. Customize ringtones to contact assignments from factory music app. Voicemail has a feature that saves your messages to the [voicemail] system and your phone's audio records. The voicemail notification on my phone is buggy because I checked and deleted all my messages but still get notified of a phantom voice message. I have lost data after two factory master resets to correct this. HTC offers a PC suite for backing up your device which I have not yet installed.
INTERNET 4G/3G, HOTSPOT, BROWSER
I was attracted to this phone for the 4G hotspot feature. This allows me the typical benefits of a smartphone plus internet for my other devices as needed. I encountered a snafu with the 4g after about two months of ownership, however.Read more ›
The most impressive feature on this phone is the screen. The resolution is awesome making for an ultra-clear viewing experience.
Performance... this device can bog down to the point it is annoying, however this occurs rarely and can be used as an indicator for you to restart the phone. This is simply done by holding down the power button and then selecting "Restart" from the menu that appears. 95% of the time this device runs smoothly and efficiently.
I run this device all day, on wi-fi, and still have plenty of battery at the end of the day. In reality, you could go 1.5 days on this phone with minimal use and still be fine. With heavier use, such as surfing on your phone for 2-3 hours and playing 1-2 hours of Sprinkle (great game BTW), will drop the battery level to the point where it might need to be plugged in an hour or two earlier than normal.
