The rear 5 megapixel camera takes pretty crappy shots and video, and the front-facing one isn’t all that much better.

Reviews Word on the street for the HTC EVO View 4G


8.0
Reception was solid on both 3G and 4G in our tests, and download speeds on 4G hit 6Mbps outdoors (WiMAX 4G is high spectrum so building penetration is an issue).

6.0
As far as hardware features are concerned, the EVO View 4G's most impressive spec is its 4G network compatibility.

8.5
The 7” display with 1024x600 resolution seems noticeably better than any of HTC’s smartphone panels, it is quite bright, vivid and can be viewed from just about any angle.

6.1
Although the Snapbooth software makes the latter lens a lot of fun to play around with.

Overall

7.5 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Operating system

It’s a 7-inch tablet that doesn’t yet run Honeycomb, but has a very unique integrated stylus experience and some interesting optimized software.
by The Verge (Jun, 2011)
Sprint hasn’t changed much of the software experience, either.
by The Verge (Jun, 2011)
A stylus is nothing new, in fact it is something manufacturers and operating systems have tried to eliminate over the past few years, but HTC brings it back with a bang.

Operating System

The HTC Evo View 4G is a beautiful little tablet that resembles HTC's celebrated line of Android smartphones.
by c|net (Jun, 2011)
Using a 7-inch screen and running Android 2.3, the HTC Evo View 4G is nearly identical to the HTC Flyer we reviewed in May, only with Sprint's 3G/4G cellular data under the hood, along with some extra services.
by c|net (Jun, 2011)
The View 4G thus feels and acts like an oversized Android smartphone.
by MobileTechReview (Jun, 2011)

Screen

The 5MP rear shooter wasn’t exactly up to today's standards however, even in strong, natural light images lacked detail and sharpness and just looked soft. The 720p video wasn't the best we've seen, but generally it performed well. We don't see too many users choosin.
by PhoneArena (Jun, 2011)
Overall, the HTC Evo View 4G is a solidly built little tablet with a lot of attention paid to details.
by c|net (Jun, 2011)
It allows the user to scribble notes on the screen as well as interact with some specific items.
by PhoneArena (Jun, 2011)

Network technology

3G speeds were also somewhat slow — I notched an average of 1.50MBps on downloads and 0.16MBps on uploads on SpeedTest.net.
by The Verge (Jun, 2011)
Or I just consider any 4G connection that’s not LTE to be slow now.
by The Verge (Jun, 2011)
That said, I’d chose to use an LTE mobile hotspot any day.
by The Verge (Jun, 2011)

Camera

to use a large tablet as a camera, so these aren't as major issues as they would be wit.
by PhoneArena (Jun, 2011)
The Evo View 4G uses a 1.3-megapixel front camera (same as the Galaxy Tab) and a 5-megapixel camera on the back.
by c|net (Jun, 2011)
On the back the 5MP main camera is trimmed in red and two speaker cutouts are along the right side, also accented in EVO red.
