Any known Evo LTE hardware changes since launch?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone noticed any changes with the hardware from the launch date to today? I know the original EVO had a screen change within 3-4 months of its release. My EVO LTE says its hardware version is 0003. Anyone found anything different on the street?

Small sample size so far but it sounds like nothing has changed. The only exception would be kckid's comments about the kickstand reinforcement.

I got mine replaced through Best Buy, and they gave me a brand new phone to replace my pre-order. It's HW V 0003

Did you get a loaner phone? If so, what kind? How long did it take to replace?

@themuffinman - We just got a software update right? So would that have changed? If not, i'm happy to look it up.

 

@kckid - I got some crappy loaner phone (still android though) but I had my replacement phone the very next day.

Yeah we just got a new OTA but I wanted to know what was on there when you took it out the box. I am going to pic up my replacement today and I am keeping my fingers crossed that by some miracle its on the older firmware so I can s-off it once I get it.

I got my replacement phone before the last update was pushed out, but I don't remember off hand if I had to acquire the first update or not.

The odd thing, and maybe I changed this without realizing it, but... On my new phone, the battery life wasn't nearly as good. Turns out, it wasn't turning Wi-Fi off over night in sleep mode and the Wi-Fi was set for "best Experience", so the battery was steady draining all night. Once I switched back, all was right in Evo land again.

Yep the idiots at HTC did that making the WiFi turn off at midnight and back on a 7.. Just one the very many things fixed in aftermarket roms.

Actually, I like this. If I happen to be up, it connects quickly enough, and I sure appreciate the impact is has on the battery.

I agree 100%. The battery it saves is amazing and why do I need Wifi if I'm not using my phone? Also you can plug your phone in to charge and it disables the battery save feature of disabling Wifi.

      I was taking a look at the HTC 5G Hub that's supposed to be launching on Sprint sometime this month. It looks like it could technically be Sprint's first foray into the WISP space. On HTC's site they mention it as a sort of replacement for your WiFi router with the ability to connect up to 20 devices to it. I wonder what data caps will be on this when it launches and what they plan on charging people for using it?
      It seems to be a lot of things smashed into one device. It's combining a wireless router, a streaming box, and a cloud gaming device all into one. It also has support for pretty much every U.S. LTE band.

      What are everyone's thought on the HTC U 12+?
    • By leozno1
      Figured the HTC U11 needs to have it's own thread as opposed to having that conversation in the HTC U Ultra thread.
       
      Pretty interesting article that has me excited about this phone. As the U11 seems to be leading Sprint's march towards Gigabit LTE.

      The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed.
       
      Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.]
       
      Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish:
      Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?
