Still no release date?

jbern8 says:

The placement of the speaker, and the fact that the back-plate is non-removable, may result in the speaker getting sweaty and grimy very fast, with no way to clean it.

May 15!

What about the mic?

Things like these are so silly. Just give us a damn release date SPrint.

DaeDae says:

Interesting. I see no label for the microsd card slot in that pic.

Robbzilla says:

It's inside the case.

lets see if sprint/htc lock this one down too.

graffixnyc says:

This would be the only variant of the One X I would want since it has a microSD card slot which is a MUST for me. The One X not having a card slot is the single reason why I would never buy a OX. Too bad for us non sprint customers that sprint is getting the only variant with a sd card slot :(

svinyard says:

If they put a 3000mha battery in this and gave it S-OFF people would crap their pants and RUN to this...literally. However, we get a meager battery bump and a locked phone.

I'm a very big EVO fan and have had the 4g and 3d at launch day...but now after last years debacle from HTC I'm seriously considering Samsung.

Robbzilla says:

If it gets as good a battery life as the AT&T OneX, it'll be fine for most users. That being said, I'd trade a few mm of thinness for a bigger battery.

Jimmy_Jo#AC says:

+1 Without S-OFF on the HTC phones, I'll have to go from the EVO 4G to the Samsung Galaxy S III Epic Touch 4G LTE SuperLCD2 HD or whatever they call it.

Cubfan says:

Not sure if this is much of an upgrade from the Epic Touch. I'm sure the SGS3 isn't.

dtreo says:

Seriously?At the very least it will have a working GPS as opposed to the EpicTouch.

The evo lte screen will be much better.

jnl813 says:

Agreed! My Epic Touch takes forever to lock GPS signal and my wifi connection is not that great, can't wait to get my hands on this.

mrsimps says:

Have any of the reviewers at AC tested whether HTC improved the quality of the external speaker? The Evo 3d is near-bout terrible! Has the speaker on this one been improved?

crxssi says:

+1 The Evo 3D speaker really is dismal.

jackrm9 says:

I was told May 10...not sure how accurate this is ...but that's what i was told. Ordered mine hour early over telephone.

Not a deal breaker but I will miss the dedicated physical button for "Search". It works so well on the Original Evo for every program or app.

Saneless says:

Same here.. But I think getting rid of menu to have 2 buttons that were once one button (recent apps) is not smart.

Floss82 says:

Is it me or does this device looks like the Motorola Photon??? Lol

kanyewest says:

i think it might be u.. lol... looks nothing like the photon.... the photon sucks btw

DWR_31 says:

What's the one thing that all of Sprint's LTE phones have in common?

Google Wallet...!
