    The EVO is not polycarbonate. It is made of an aluminum alloy. The pixel density is greater on the EVO not the Galaxy S3.

    First of all your review of the HTC Evo LTE is off when it comes to make. The Evo LTE is not made of polycarbonate, onlyt the top back cover is. Instead it is made up of anodized aluminum which makes it more solid than the SIII. Another thing is the screen comparison. The screens are not as close as you make them seem. The Super LCD surpasses the Super AMOLED as other reviews have stated. Lastly the cameras are not as close as you make it seem. I suggest you check out other reviews and look at the camera comparisons. The Evo LTE has the best camera out there when compared to the other new phone cameras. It is if not better close to the ipone 4s’s camera. The other thing you forget to mentiion is that half of the gimic software the SIII contains does not operate effectively due to their (in my opinion iphone knock off quality) and lack of polish. The best Samsung phone I have seen is the SII, the SIII in my opinion is the one that falls short of quality and being considered the best phone as comparison to the Evo LTE.

    I have not had a chance to check out SIII but I own the EVO 4g LTE. It is by far the best phone I have ever owed. HTC skin is so much better than Samsung’s. Samsung’s is not as refined and it looks plain and dated. I only wished I could remove the battery. Dont get me wrong, battery life is great when Compared to other androids ( except Motorola maxx). Oh yeah, the phone is slippery and I never seem to have a good grip on it.
