Default Why the HTC Evo 4G is so much better than Desire?

Dear friends,

I am upset! HTC claimed that the HTC Desire is their "superphone"/flagship phone but suddenly there is a much better phone released EVEN BEFORE the Desire was officially launched! Could someone educate me on how it this possible?

Why better?
1. Larger display
2. Better camera when it comes to the megapixels
3. HD 720p video recording
4. HDMI out!
5. Looks 100x better than the Desire


I have a question. Could this 4G phone be used in other countries as well or just the US? This is not the same as a GSM phone?

0. Who cares about 4G, more importantly, WHO HAVE 4G right now?
1. Display is TFT (NOT better than AMOLED!). more than 4.0 inches, too large, you might as well carry a laptop instead of this.
2. Who cares about cameras in phones? get SE Satio 12 MP with xenon flash if you care about Cameras in phones
3. camera again? who cares? and the HD recording is rumoured for the Desire too.
4. ok, maybe thats a point for Evo
5. I disagree, this point is personal taste anyways, not better or worst

I don't think this will work on GSM phone, no, it won't work.

And I won't pick any phone without AMOLED screen at least (Samsung SUPER AMOLED is better though).

More megapixel camera is useless with that tiny sensor, believe me on this. It is better to have less megapixel under the same sensor size.

Samsung Galaxy S with its 4" SUPER AMOLED is quite ideal for me, but I don't like the software, the hardware (too rounded) and ... Samsung

I think, my feeling told me ... at the end of this year, there will be better phone from HTC with 1.5GHz Snapdragon, 4.3" AMOLED screen, 1080p HD recording.
Why? Because in June there will be iPhone 4G ... which should be better than current 3GS.
HTC is keeping its weapon to outdone that to stay on top.


Mark my dream ... eh, my words
Nexus 5 : Android 4.4.1 stock ROM, stock recovery, rooted

Has HTC ever release a superphone at the end of the year?

We just need to get used to that fact that there will be so many Android devices coming out that.... By the time we purchase the next greatest device the next greatest device will be coming out to upstage what we just bought.

Just like computers were doing for many years. By the time I got a new graphics card/cpu installed and fired up my computer I would get on the net only to read that my new GPU/CPU was already old news...

I long since learned to enjoy what I just purchased and worry about a new gadget when I had the extra money to upgrade.

I'm just happy that we now have options. I just wish US ATT would get off it's app and release a great Android device!
MotoX (ATT), HTC One, N5, N7, Asus Transformer (TF101)

Galaxy Nexus (LTE) - running AOKP ROM = Awesome!
Droid X
ATT Samsung S - Captivate
HTC Dream/G1
Various Window OS devices

Always waiting (patiently) for the latest CyanogenMOD


Thanks to JesusFreke, Cyanogen, LucidRem, Stericson, Haykuro, The Dude, Wysie_Soh, Kmobs, Koush, Wes, Birdman, etc. - Ya'll are awesome!

Wow, I was all set to preorder my desire today - then this pops up!

Anyone know if we're likely to see a UK release? I'm just about to email HTC to ask.

Not necessarily end of the year to be honest ... It could be the same day with iPhone 4G

That would be awesome day!

Well, I got a (pretty unhelpful) reply from HTC about a UK release of the Supersonic.
