HTC EVO 4G Problems: Graphics 30 FPS – Hardware or Software?

By Updated on

Some slightly worrying news for HTC EVO 4G owners on Sprint now, as we are hearing reports that the graphics on the device are capped at 30 FPS. Is this a big issue for you?

As reported from Engadget, users over at the XDA-Developers and Google Code forums are claiming that the EVO 4G is locked to FPS in both 2D (Canvas) and 3D (openGL) modes.

While you may think that this isn’t an issue while using, bear in mind that the HTC Hero can reach up to 54fps on average and reportedly has “smoother scrolling” than the HTC EVO.

Engadget point out that it is unlikely to be a hardware issue, which could mean that this is a firmware issue. If it is, then it can be fixed with a future update you would like to think.

No word from HTC regarding the matter yet. We’ll update you when we know more. In the meantime, give us your thoughts on this. Is 30 FPS a problem for you?

    I’ve taken video, played it back, watched youtube hq, uploaded video to the device and I’ve yet to be disappointed. I think battery life is a bigger issue than anything.

    First it was the battery and I found it was adequate, then it was Sprint didn't have enough 4G coverage and now its is graphics. Well I have had no problems watching anything, which includes porn sites. In fact it perform beautifully. On the matter 4G I get good reception in hotels and I have no doubt that we will have 120 million POPS of 4G before the year is over.

    It seems that nobody likes the idea that the EVO 4G has toppled the iPhone 4 in almost every aspect conceivable; 4G, Tethering, 8MP camera, dual flash, Adobe Flash, Real Teleconferencing not just on WiFi, better multitasking, HDMI and a 4.3" screen.

    my new Evo works fast; replaced my iPhone 3gs, and sure miss the iPhone's intuitive navigation part and the easiness to find what you need. But in terms of calls and speed, Sprint is better and faster. I also hope that HTC fixes the FPS to match the 54 fps of Hero.
