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).

By S. Power TOP 500 REVIEWER on August 4, 2012
Virgin Mobile has always been a great value, delivering acceptable phones and service at a far lower total cost of ownership than the big contract carriers. In the past though, Virgin's phones have been about a year behind the current technology at the time of their introduction and the over-all experience was far lower than what you could get if you were willing to pay more. They were, as I've said in my other reviews of their earlier phones, a good value because of their cost, but not great because of their phones or performance. Their phones were usually about a year behind the newest releases from the hardware makers, and their network service from Sprint is slightly lacking in some cities especially compared to Verizon.

This HTC EVO V 4G runs Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), which is currently (at the time of this review) the newest version of Android. It has a fast processor, good camera, is 4G capable, has great battery life, and has overall great performance. Although it has been out for over a year on Sprint, it is not nearly as far behind the mainstream as previous Virgin Mobile offerings have been. Between my wife and me, we have tried pretty much every Virgin Mobile "Beyond Talk" phone. They have almost all been good, but with flaws, performance tradeoffs, and were noticeably behind the mainstream phones that the big carriers were offering at the time. The HTC EVO V 4G is the first one that is not only a good value, but also rivals the mainstream on-contract phones in terms of performance. I'm not saying that it is as good as the newest phones on the big carriers, but the difference is becoming far less noticeable. The cutting edge phones are still getting better, but now at a slower pace which is allowing phones like this one to be a closer match.

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.
