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

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

EVO IS WAY BETTER THAN THE IPHONE 4G… THE EVO HAVING TWO FLASH'S SAY'S IT ALL….LOL… HAVING A 8MPXL CAMERA TO A 5MPXL, IS NO COMPARING..CHRIS

Really not a great comparison – especially irked by your perpetuation of the megapixel myth. More megapixels doesn't mean a better camera (nor a better image.)

I phone Is GSM & HTC EVO Has NO GSM

once 4g connectivity has spread to most of the world, the evo will go down in history as the 1st 4g phone.

Also the evo will then get really popular and 4g will be the standard, and then 5g or something.

All the phones perform very well, but lets not forget who the leader and innovator was in this touch screen market. It is much easier to copy and make improvements, but nothing will compare to iTunes and software offered. I'm sure examples aren't needed if you own an iPhone. At a time when Sprint was failing Apple reincarnated them to forwarded thinking or rather copy apples technology that seems to be happening with all other companies. Come on and have a thought of your own.

One other feature that the iphone doesnt have that the Evo does is Mobile Hotspot capable, which is awsome. Your phone can be used as a hotspot and up to five people can connect.

Sure the Iphone 4 was unveiled, nice GUI, but all in all for a Smartphone the HTC EVO is packed with features, from being able to run on a 4G network with unlimitted data and no cap as ATT cancels their unlimiited data. The HTC EVO can also multi task.. it has a built in like router that can 8 devices can connect to while still being able to answer a call. Now that is true multi tasking unlike the Iphones carrier running on a 3G network. Sprint has 33 markets running 4G…the 4G on Iphone 4G means 4th generation… Read more »

i did a little maths at school years ago … isnt 940×640 bigger than 800×480?

Quote from review ==> “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”

What a crappy comparison….

The iPhone screen might be slightly smaller but it most certainly has higher sharper resolution.

Same with the camera, just because it has less mega pixels doesn’t mean it will produce worse pictures. Mega pixels is purely the size of the image that comes out.

Jeeez, and you guys are meant to be journalists and such…
