Conclusion

All things considered, the HTC EVO View 4G gives you a fair return on your dollar, but ultimately falls behind in performance in areas like battery life and screen performance. While it will work fairly well outdoors, don't expect it to be a great option for a long commute or flight.

It isn't all bad, as it does offer some interesting options in terms of functionality that should not be ignored for those looking to save a bit on their tablets and grab a smaller model. For example, the camera isn't terrible, and the ability to act as a rudimentary media server is pretty cool.

Basically, you get low-average performance, at a price point that is lower than most other tablets. Anybody thinking the HTC EVO View 4G will compete with the iPad or Xyboard is expecting too much from an affordable tablet, but it isn't for everybody. If you just want a Google-blessed device that won't break the bank and can handle basic media needs, the HTC EVO View 4G is an acceptable option.
