Large but thin

Like the HTC HD2, the Evo 4G is quite large, measuring 4.8 inches tall by 2.6 inches wide and weighing 6 ounces. That said, it remains quite slim at just 0.5 inch thick.

Kickstand!

On bottom, you'll find the phone's Micro-USB and HDMI ports. The handset also has a sturdy kickstand that can be used to prop up the Evo so you can watch videos and view photos hands-free.
