Sprint updates HTC EVO 4G LTE, brings MHL support

Sprint is pushing an update to their HTC EVO 4G LTE today bringing the phone’s software version to 3.16.651.3. The update addresses mostly minor issues with the handset, the most major changing being the implementation of audio/video output via an MHL cable.

Bugs and tweaks include include improvements to the phone’s proximity sensor, WiFi connectivity, and Bluetooth compatibility. The update is arriving over the air, so it may not hit all users at once. You can check for updates by navigating to the ‘About phone’ screen under the Settings menu.

      In that case, you’re just like HTC… since they have apparently forgotten that the Thunderbolt exists :p

          This phone is less than 1 year old. I love my Evo, my son has the S3 and I prefer my phone over his.

        • Lactose_the_Intolerant

          lol dinosaur… not even one year old yet. The big reason — this was the *first* LTE phone on Verizon and it still runs Gingerbread >.< Can you believe that?? Updates where promised over and over…

          • Lactose_the_Intolerant

            oops… 2 years old. i seriously need to put the crackpipe down :p

      • Fred G. Vader

        Hey bro did you see that ics was released for the bolt!

        • Lactose_the_Intolerant

          Amazing!! If anybody pinches me and wakes me up, I’m gonna be pissed! :p

    There must have been a bug fig to the MHL because I’ve used MHL on this device since it came out in May.

    The EVO is the best “One” Series phone that came out in 2012. It shares the same superior Super LCD 2 screen as the One X, but adds one of the few Micro SD card slots in the series (One SV & One VX being the other two). CPU tests show the EVO was marginally faster than the One X with the same Dual-core Qualcomm S4 SoC. With a 2000 mAh battery, its almost the same size as the one in the Droid DNA, but powering a smaller screen and two cores instead of four.

    • DavidVarghese

      Yup… although my Evo lasts all day for me, I do wish it had a bigger battery so I can do a little more with my phone

  • Kanes_Inferno

    Excited, this phone has been receiving great support.

  • DavidVarghese

    Hopefully that’ll fix the bugs that was there when it was updated to Jelly Bean… guess I’m gonna find out soon
