HTC looks to take on Apple with its EVO 4G LTE, but will it be enough to topple the iPhone 4S
for Sprint customers? Check out our side
-
by
-
side spec comparison to find out.

With another big smartphone announcement, comes yet

another comparison to the cream
-
of
-
the
-
crop Apple iPhone 4S. This time it's Sprint with the HTC EVO 4G LTE, which will set you back
$199.99 with a two
-
year contract.

It wasn't the HTC One X we expected, but this follow
-
up to the original HTC EVO 4G is big
ger
and better than its predecessor in every way. But will it be enough to sway the Apple devotees on
Sprint away from the glass
-
clad iPhone 4S? Read on for a side
-
by
-
side comparison.

HTC continues the trend of ever
-
growing, gargantuan
-
screened phones, wit
h the 4.7
-
inch display
found on the HTC 4G LTE. Despite its finger
-
bending footprint, 5.3 by 2.7 inches, it keeps
things rather thin, at only 0.35 inches deep. It's thinner than the iPhone 4S, which comes in at 4.5
by 2.3 by 0.35 inches, and also lighter a
t 4.7 ounces versus the iPhone's 4.9 ounces. The EVO 4G
LTE also features a 1280
-
by
-
720
-
pixel super LCD display, and during our brief hands
-
on, we
found it to be extremely sharp and incredibly bright. Despite the much larger screen, HTC
managed to pack 312

pixels
-
per
-
inch, which rivals the iPhone's Retina display, with its 326
pixels
-
per
-
inch.

Dig deeper and you'll find a 1.5
-
GHz, dual
-
core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 powering the EVO
4G LTE. It might not be quad
-
core, but when we had a chance to test the new ch
ipset earlier this
year, we found it to be one of the fastest chips yet. The iPhone 4S utilizes Apple's dual
-
core A5
chip, which is no slouch either. HTC also looks to cash in with its Beats Audio technology, but
headphones are not included.

The eternal qu
estion remains: iOS or Android? Fanboys on either side will contend that their OS
of choice is superior, and each side has valid claim to the smartphone throne. App selection and
user interface are of utmost importance when selecting a smartphone; iOS 5 fe
atures over
500,000, while Android is close behind at over 450,000, but these numbers are always changing.
The HTC EVO 4G LTE will join the growing number of newly minted Android smartphones to
run Google's latest, and greatest, flavor

Ice Cream Sandwich.
For those accustomed to
Android, the upgrade will mean a smoother and more polished user interface, an enhanced
browser, and performance advances all around. For a closer look check out our full review of
ICS. Apple's iOS 5 is, as always, buttery smooth, w
ith a simple and straightforward layout and
user
-
interface that will be familiar to anyone who uses Apple's ubiquitous touchscreen devices.

Network speed is a huge factor, as a slow connection can be extremely frustrating. The iPhone
4S connects to Sprint'
s 3G network and lags behind the latest generation of LTE
-
branded phones.
The EVO 4G LTE has the advantage here, but keep in mind that Sprint is still in the process of
rolling out LTE coverage, so unless you're under its 4G umbrella, this might not be a h
uge factor.

The iPhone 4S was lauded for its incredible 8
-
megapixel camera and HTC looks to match Apple
with the 8
-
megapixel shooter on the EVO 4G LTE. HTC will try to distinguish itself with its
ImageSense technology, and from our hands on, we can say tha
t it makes a serious difference.
The shutter speed was, to quote mobile analyst Alex Colon, ridiculously fast

it snapped off
three photos in the time it takes most phones to take one.

These are just a few of the key factors at play when pitting the reignin
g smartphone champ, the
Apple iPhone 4S, against HTC's latest contender, the EVO 4G LTE. Android fans will definitely
have something to look forward to with the Ice
-
Cream
-
Sandwich
-
packing EVO 4G LTE, but
whether or not it can beat out the iPhone remains to

be seen. Which will you prefer? Let us know
in the comments below.

Stay tuned for our full review of the HTC EVO 4G LTE. For more phone reviews, news, and
