The HTC Evo Shift 4G and Social Media Apps

By Gareth Jale

The HTC Shift Evo 4G makes social media more enjoyable than ever. With a full QWERTY keyboard, D pad and touch screen, this stylish new phone from HTC steals the spotlight and focuses it on social media. With social gaming being one of the hottest new trends out there, the Shift Evo 4G will be helping to deliver it with its very powerful processor. From email to gaming, Facebook and Twitter, it's never been easier or more fun to stay socially connected.

The newest 4G offering from HTC, the Shift Evo improves upon its predecessor with a slightly smaller screen, but offers a slide out QWERTY keyboard. This gives users a second text input option over the touch screen's keyboard, making it easy to type messages quickly. Users who text frequently on social media sites may prefer the ease that the keyboard provides. By combining a full keyboard with the touch screen, users have an option on whether they want to use the touch screen or slide out keyboard to compose their thoughts.

The fast processor included in this phone makes it easy to keep up to date on social sites. Notifications for new messages are available for a number of popular social sites. Android makes it easy to customize features within messaging such as new themes for text messages, or pop up notices for new Facebook or Twitter updates. Those who need frequent access to email will enjoy being able to check their email with the Shift Evo 4G. Options are available for all of the most popular email providers such as Gmail, as well as an ability to use an Exchange server to retrieve and send emails.

Compared to its predecessor, it is smaller, lighter weight and can be more easily tossed in a purse or pocket when not in use. Because of its improved size, there are a number of accessories available as many are universal. That would mean that those who are seeking a case for it will have it a lot easier than those looking for a case for the original, Evo. This can make staying connected easier as the phone is protected and easier to carry, with less risk of it becoming damaged or scratched.

The Shift Evo 4G's touch screen makes it so much easier for users to browse the Internet. Though the touch screen is durable, Shift Evo owners often chose to use a screen protector to keep their screen responsive. This can lengthen the life of the touch screen as heavy use may cause scratches or other signs of wear that can reduce responsiveness. Users are often cautioned to be careful not to scratch the screen while sending messages or playing games, and keeping the screen clean can keep their phone looking new for longer.

Whether someone wants the new device for casual usage, social networking or even gaming, the phone will definitely not disappoint. Those new to the world of social media on their phone will find it is an easy transition from their home computer. Experienced media users will enjoy the additional level that having their updates available at a finger touch provides.
