Sprint finally getting some good phones


In case some of you haven't heard, Sprint is finally getting some great new phones to catch back up with the other carriers. If you're a Sprint customer like me, you know that Sprints smart phone selection is limited when compared to carriers such as AT&T, Verizon, and even T-Mobile.

Sprint has the HTC Evo, Nexus S, Samsung Epic, and the less powerful Evo Shift. Every other phone lacks common smart phone features such as 4G and/or mobile hotspot. Verizon has phones such as the iPhone 4, Droid Incredible 2, HTC Thunderbolt, Droid Charge, Droid X2, Sony Xperia, and the HTC Trophy. Im not even going to list every phone that AT&T and T-Mobile has because im sure you get the point. Luckily a few great phones will be coming to Sprint this summer.

The first phone is the Evo 3D. The Evo 3D will feature a 4.3" 540 x 960 pixel S-LED screen that can show images and videos in 3D. The phone is extremely powerful with a 1200MHz dual core snapdragon CPU and 1GB of RAM. The expected release date is June 24th, so sprint customers looking for an upgrade should definitely check this out.

The next phone is the Motorola Photon. This phone features a 4.3" 540 x 960 pixel screen, but it cannot show 3D video like the Evo 3D. This phone is also extremely powerful with a 1000MHz dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 CPU and 1GB of RAM. The expected release date is sometime in July, so keep an eye out for this phone.

I only briefly reviewed the specs of these phones, so check out http://www.phonearena.com for a full list of specs. Those are the only 2 phones that have confirmed specs, but other phones such as the Samsung Within, HTC Kingdom, HTC Mazaa, and the Motorola Atrix may be coming out sometime this summer.

  3. I'm reeeeaaalllly looking forward to replacing my phone. That said, I'll probably sit on the sidelines for a while longer and see if hardware/software performance improves some more.

  11. For the sake of Sprint and us as consumers I hope the at&t/tmo merger doesn't happen.

  12. HTC is awesome but I will always prefer the iPhone. Especially with the release of the iPhone 4x in August this summer.

  27. I have the Evo 4G and I absolutely love it. I'm not entirely sure on if I want to get the 3D though, I'm not big on the novelty of it. Though dual core processors in my phone sounds nice :)
