The Bottom Line The HTC Evo Design 4G gives you a lot of smartphone for a good price--fast 4G speeds, a good camera, a strong processor, and a sophisticated design. It's an excellent choice for Sprint customers, except those who are specifically looking for a dual-core phone. The HTC Evo 4G is easily Sprint's best smartphone and one of today's top Android devices. It also shows the promise of 4G, which will grow as Sprint's WiMax network expands, but until there's broader 4G coverage, it's hard to agree with the mandatory premium data add-on fee. A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone. Boost's LG Venice has respectable midrange specs including a snappy processor and a vivid screen, but if you want 4G data speeds, look elsewhere. The HTC Evo Design 4G may be Boost Mobile's top dog but it's fenced in by a high price and weak performance.
