I received both of my HTC phones (Evo 3 and Evo 4) through my roommate's work. They were actually sent back by reps on the field, once the reps left the company. They didn't have service, but still worked otherwise, and had wifi on them. I took the HTC to mess around with, and fell in love with it. It's a sleek and down right sexy! The camera on this phone is just amazing. Most front facing cams are just crap, and while this one is still limited (no auto focus, etc), it's still far and above most out there (including the one on my Samsung tablet). The rear camera has amazing macro capabilities, and the auto focus is phenomenal. I do throw a little shade to the auto white balance. It goes a tad weird every once in a while, but that could be for any reason. If you're in an area that has both fluorescent and incandescent, you're better off setting the white balance manually to get the results you need. The phone itself, as far as phones go, works wonderfully. The sound is great in the ear, the microphone is clear and a good volume (I've tested it in being on the other end of a phone call with this phone). The bluetooth is strong, and carries a long way once connected. It connected easily and quickly to my car's system. The ability to customize the scene, or screens, is easy to muddle through for first timers. The Beats audio has superb sound, and you'll never need an MP3 player with this phone in your hands. Since the memory is expandable, you're set for music, and even a few videos if needed. The syncing and file sharing when I plug it into my computer is easy as pie, too. There area a few ways to get the memory card and internal memory to mount as a hard drive on your computer, but either way is no more than a tap or two away. For the money, this phone gives the Galaxy S4 a good run for it's money. Let it be one of your top two choices when thinking about a new phone.
