The HTC EVO Design 4G is a capable device, and a good choice for those who are more budget-conscious, since it’s $100 less than some of the bleeding-edge devices currently available, and it comes with a qHD display and an 8GB microSD card. It doesn’t have the fastest processor, the biggest display, or the highest resolution camera, but it can handle just about everything the average consumer will throw at it.

HTC EVO Design 4GSince it’s also a worldphone, it offers some extra flexibility for those who travel internationally. It does suffer from a few concerns, most notably regarding voice quality, but if Sprint’s network coverage is strong in your area that may not be an issue for you. The EVO Design 4G may not be the current “gee whiz” device, but it gets the job done and is worth a closer look to see if it meets your needs.


  • World Phone, so it’s a better option for those who travel internationally.
  • Relatively small
  • Solidly built
  • Good battery life
  • Capable camera


  • No Microsoft Office-compatible software included
  • Voice quality is OK, but not great
  • Some issues with camera flash
