The good: Fans of 7-inch tablets will appreciate the HTC Evo View 4G's screen quality, durable construction, HD video recording, and unique features, such as digital pen compatibility and HTC's Sense UI customization.
The bad: The Evo View 4G is small, thick, and pricey, and isn't running Google's Android 3.0 tablet OS. Its most unique feature, the Magic Pen, may not come included and is expensive to replace.
The bottom line: The HTC Evo View 4G puts a new spin on the 7-inch Android tablet, but its high price and smartphone-style OS are a tough sell next to its bigger, cheaper Honeycomb kin.
It is what I've been looking for in a tablet
by DIMITRI32 on July 22, 2011
Pros: The scribe, the screen, its' portability, the endless possibilities it offers, it's fun, it trucks, it is amazing.
Cons: It's a tad heavy to hold after a while like when I took it to go shopping groceries. Not a lot of accesories for this particular tablet yet and at times the UI is a bit choppy.
I would not know a single core processor from a dual core processor even if I

Summary: This is exactly what I wanted from my first android tablet. I was about to buy the IPad 2 in January until I came across with the HTC flyer. When I researched what this baby could do, I waited to see it in action face to face. When I did, I fell in love and it was over. Since I wanted the pen, I bought it from Sprint with a 2GB plan and I find that it was the best thing I ever did. Now when my contract is over with Tmobile, I will cancel my plan with them and buy a regular cell phone, since everything I would do with my Samsung Vibrant I can now do with my HTC view 4g. On that note, I went to a conference at NYU and I took my HTC tablet to take notes during the various conferences I was going to attend. Well I was not the only one. Almost everyone in the conference had an IPAD or the IPAD 2 , I had my tablet and I used the scribe to write the info or a combination of the screen keyboard. Meanwhile I saw IPAD user docked their IPad to small keyboards and typed away with some difficulty due to the keyboard's size. So I ask myself, If I were going to dock my tablet to a keyboard, why not buy a lenovo notebook or something similar to that? Why buy a tablet, when I have to use a keyboard? This is not a great example of portability. This is not an example of power. Tthis is not technology accommodating my needs, this is an example of my needs accommodating technology. And this is the reason why I am glad I bought my HTC. So then, because of its power and endless possibilites, I have decided to sacrifice portability and buy the 10 inch Puccini Tablet from HTC when it becomes available.
Please forgive my grammar and use of the language, I speak Spanish and I wrote this on the fly....in a doctor's office...

POOR workmanship - AWFUL warranty support
by joemcadams on October 13, 2011
Pros: nice UI, good form factor, responsive capacitive screen
Cons: low quality charging port connector, no Sprint warranty, HTC does not honor manufacturer warranty

Summary: This device is not ready for enterprise use. Sprint does not warranty tablets because it deems them to be accessories. I was shocked to learn that Sprint would not sell me a warranty. We purchased our tablet from Sprint Enterprise Telesales. On the 31st day, I broke the charging port while plugging in the AC charger to the device. The solder inside the tablet broke loose. I could hear rattling in the tablet as I would shake the tablet. After much dismay with Sprint warranty policies, I sent the unit to HTC manufacture support in Houston. They promply informed me that the device had to be repaired OUT OF WARRANTY for $110. Furthermore, they accused me (in writing) of tampering with the device, stating that it had MISSING PARTS. I was shocked at the accusation, but had no other choice but to pay the extortion money and hope to receive my device back. The entire process took 4 weeks (or half a product lifecycle). The lesson learned is that HTC is not ready to provide enterprise-level support for business. They are focused on nickel-diming users out of repair fees.. which is a typical small Chinese company approach to consumer relationships. Our company has since discontinued research into the possiblity of using HTC products for our enterprise. We will be examining Samsung and Lenovo as the next Android tablet alternative.HTC is also the only major computer manufacturer which does NOT accept AMERICAN EXPRESS. That's right, I had to use a MasterCard for payment. Does it remind you of your cheap local Chinese restaurant? Just call their support line at 855-788-3705 and ask what credit cards they accept. You will be shocked.

Exceptional tablet, far exceeded my wildest expectation
by TheTeacher75 on September 14, 2011
Pros: 7 inch form factor (ideal for meetings), blazing fast processor, note taking feature(sync with evernote), blazing fast 4G connectivity (I have the EVO View 4G), top notch build quality and impressive battery life.
Cons: I wish it had a swappable battery (Although battery life is impressive)

Summary: I had an Ipad, however, I found it a bit combersome for use on the go and especially in meetings. As soon as the 4G Flyer (Evo View 4G) was released, I got one. I must say, it is the best tablet I have used to date. It fits perfectly into my routine (size and capabilities). I love being able to take notes in a meeting, then going to my office and being able to review my notes on my desktop computer, this is efficiency at its finest. Editing my subordinates reports is a snap with the scribe pen. I have had my Evo View 4G for over 3 months now, and I use it heavily everyday. It does everything I want it to do in a very elegant fashion. I love it, my wife love it and my kids (4 and 12) absolutely loves it. The bottom line is, everyone must first determine their unique needs and choose the tablet/device which best address those needs. For me, a 4G tablet thats able to take hand written notes and sync with evernote is an absolute necessity. Consequently, the the HTC Evo View 4G is the ideal tablet for me.
Performs how I expected it to.

Pros: HTC Sense UI, Snapdragon processor, Battery life, boot time, portability

Summary: If you want to replace a netbook with something that won't burn your lap & you have to have HTC's Sense UI, then this is the only tablet for you. I replaced a netbook with this tablet, and have not regretted it since. The netbook had a 1.6Ghz, compared to the View's 1.5Ghz. Both have 1GB of RAM. And the 32GB of memory is enough for what I need it for, and if it's not, there's always the SD card slot. The 5 second boot time is so much better than waiting a minute for the netbook to boot. This is a supplemental computer, not a primary, so pretty much surfing the web, checking email, & checking social network sites is all I use it for. And the occasional game of Angry Birds of course. Runs like a champ, never have an issue with it locking up or crashing. The only down side I've seen is with the Live Wallpapers. Using the weather wallpaper trips it up all the time. I'm not sure if this is a problem with Sense or a problem with the processor handling the wallpaper. And no Facebook app? Really strange.
This tablet is definitely not for everyone. If you love HTC's phones and are looking to replace a netbook with something with better battery life, then look no further.

Summary: I have owned the View since day 1 and I love it. I love the size and the 3g/4g capabilites. I love the fact that I can go online to cnet.com and get the actual web site and not the mobile version. I love the speed of 4g and the over all portability of the view. I owned the first galaxy tab and did not like going to web sites and getting the mobile versions first. Over all I am very satisfied
I was smitten with this device until the update.
by agent-99 on July 21, 2011
Pros: The best feature was the scribe.
Cons: After an update I could no longer sign pdf documents. Which is why I returned the view.
A great device that makes a boring app a Killer App.

Summary: Take advantage of the News Feed Widget. I almost deleted this auto installed widget but decided to explore it instead. This widget is essentially an extension of Google Reader and allows you to automatically stay on top of all news of interest in an organized fashion as well as readily play any associated videos. Over the past month, because of this app, the time I spend on my desktop has declined at least 50% (hopefully I 'll start to notice a lower electricity bill).
This widget makes you want to take advantage of those RSS icons you see on websites. It might take you a little patience to setup and organize your RSS feeds/websites, but it is well worth it. This portable tablet and widget allows you to easily stay on top of the lastest news of interest.
Personal Use: News Feed Wdiget, Email, Netflix, DoggCatcher, TuneIn Radio, Pandora, note taking and sharing, web surfing, and cardio machine gym companion.

Summary: The Evo View is a "Good Tablet". The scribe feature is great for business. I think this is a great business tablet and not a great "I want a tablet" tablet. The Data plan is costly and there are not enough apps built for it as of 07/14/11 to make me want to keep it. I owned it for 8 days then returned it.
HTC is the Apple of Android

Summary: I was in the market for a tablet for some time but held off because vendors have been rolling them out so quickly, plus I kept talking myself out of one because of my smartphone (at the time a HTC EVO). Secondly, I am an overall HTC fanboy; to me they are the Apple to the Android community. They're devices are always innovation and sleek in design, and they try and give you bang for your buck. Fresh from the box it was a familiar platform and OS design I was use too with regards to my previous overall EVO and HTC Sense usage. Plus the final deciding factor for me was the option of 3G/4G service so as not to have the headache of searching for a wifi hotspot that I was comfortable with. In addition, it was a great replacement to my Kindle 3G, so that I keep all of the great advantages of an e-reader but I get to do a little more along with the ability to now subscribe to magazines and such which I wouldn't do before because of the black and white on kindle (don't get me wrong love my kindle and it does what it do well).
