HTC EVOTechsnoop has been so patient.  Waiting for the EVO to get it’s dual-core upgrade.  It’s all I could think about.  I never considered switching to another brand when I upgrade.  Fortunately, I still have plenty of time before my upgrade since HTC decided for some unfathomable reason to upgrade the EVO but downgrade its camera.  Um, Hello.  HTC redefined the concept of a camera phone.  The 8mp camera in the EVO created camera envy in phones all over the world.  My EVO pics consistently outshine even 12mp digital camera pics.

So why in the world would Sprint and HTC consider offering an EVO with a 5mp camera?  Didn’t they learn from the EVO 3D?  The camera is one of the reasons this phone is not a better seller.  People tell me all the time this is a dealbreaker for them in considering the 3D.  The smartphone market is highly competitive and there are more models out than can realistically be supported.  To be profitable, companies had better begin ditching some models.

HTC, please ditch the EVO 3D and the EVO Design.  They are not worthy of your brand, and a waste of good component materials.  You created the Amaze for T-Mobile with 8mp, the Rezound for Verizon has 8mp and the Vivid for AT&T has 8mp.  Loyal HTC and Sprint customers deserve 8mp and all the features of a dual-core EVO.

Here’s hoping this was just a blip, and HTC and Sprint have a better EVO coming out for us soon.
