Amazon has the HTC EVO 4G for $130 (new customers only)

If you’re a new customer going over to Sprint, consider the offer Amazon has for the HTC EVO 4G LTE. They’re giving the device up for a mere $130 following a new two-year contract, a fine price for a device that will surely hold its own at the top of the totem pole for a while.

And you’re not totally out of luck if you’re not a new customer as they are offering an upgrade price of $150 as well. Head to the source link if you feel like splurging just a tad. [Amazon]

    I was confused by the title of the article.

      Yes I wasn’t the only one. I was lyk, that phone ain’t worth more than $100. LoL!!

    Sprint is offering $100 port number credit if you port so if you are going to trf from Verizon or AT&T that deal is probably better, although the Amazon one requires less cash out of pocket..also Amazon quotes $36 activation fee per line, where as Sprint site seems to still be appearing activation free..YMMV

    On paperwork and real life the specs are great. According to so many reviews the phone is a fast and non laggy phone. Great deal for a phone like this…….but whats holding me back from this is the comments of the device littered thru different sites. Seems like the phone lags when alot is going on in the phone. 2GB of ram was easily needed for the One X and E4GLte….The stock roms on the phone are downright ginourmous with Sense on it. 1GB of ram was unnacceptable. Nearly 400mb for some of the sense 3.5 roms, when they FIRST came out, was crazy. Could barely do anything at first when ports of 3.5 were first coming to the Evo 4G. Devs eventually slimmed it down but the Galaxy S3′s 2GB ram is a great way to avoid slow downs. Now that we know Samsung and LG have crossed the 1GB threshold, we are gonna see alot more 2GB ram phones. So this phone at that price, or sprints port price, is a steal for that one tiny limitation few users are experiencing.

    Dunno. I know it’s just CNN but their review of the Galaxy S 3 wasn’t exactly glowing, and the 2gb of ram was needed to offset the bloat of their skin.

    To each their own. Gives me a bit of a warm and fuzzy that I made an ok choice getting the EVO LTE… Ie wasn’t necessarily the wrong choice. :)

    This is the REAL EVO, the first one was a fake 4G phone. It was a 3.5G

    • mikeclee

      Technically this is still a fake 4G phone then.

      • NIGHTSCOUT

        :O I was under the impression it was an LTE Phone! I just skimmed the specs, NO LTE!!!! What is going on????

        EDIT: Wait, I just woke up, and thought we were talking about the One X. This Phone does have LTE capabilities, what are you talking about….Real 4G is LTE. the rule is in order for the generation to go up one, the speed has to go up 10X. LTE is capable of those speeds, but not HSPA+ OR HSDPA.

        • EarlyMon

          Real LTE is the spec defined by the ITU, and the full 4G is either LTE Advanced or WiMax 2, neither of which we have. The rest are all still 4G by dispensation of the ITU, that screwed up the whole 4G spec process anyway.
