AT&T New iPhone 4 vs. Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G

By Peter Chubb - Jun 8, 2010

In one corner we have the HTC EVO 4G, in the other we have the iPhone 4. We know that when Apple releases its latest contender in a couple of weeks there will be a huge battle to see how the two compare. But we can get a pre-fight look at the two.

Firstly we shall look at the screen on both handsets, the iPhone 4 measures 960 x 640, 3.5-inch, while the EVO comes in at 800 x 480, 4.3-inch – so if you are looking for a larger screen then HTC has one this round.

Next is the thickness of both smartphones, the iPhone 4 is just 0.37-inch and the EVO 4G is 0.47-inch. This confirms what Steve Jobs said during his WWDC 2010 keynote, that the iPhone 4 is the thinnest smartphone ever.

Looks like the HTC wins the camera round, packing 8-megapixel while the iPhone 4 only offers 5-megapixel. But let us not forget that Apple seems to punch above its weight with the lens technology that it uses.

The HTC EVO 4G and the iPhone 4 comes with video chat thanks to their front-facing cameras – the former uses Qik while Apple uses its new FaceTime software.

The true test of both these handsets will only come to light when users have both in their hands – this will not be until June 24. More details and images can be seen on Paul Miller’s post on Engadget
