Smartphone Showdown: Apple iPhone 4 vs. HTC EVO

Other tech sites will bore you with in-depth "technical details" and performance specs in their product analysis.  As evidenced by our frequent fake news stories, we're not concerned with facts (at least not real ones), but to be a respectable geek (fake) news site, we do have to do some product comparisons.

The latest phone to challenge the iPhone's dominance is the HTC EVO 4G. Previous phones were all trying to catch up to the iPhone, but the EVO has surpassed the iPhone in some respects. Apple has countered by announcing the iPhone 4. Let's see how the "superphones" stack up against each other in our unique comparisons.


Apple iPhone 4iPhone 4 - Like Microsoft would name a phone, but with an "i" in front of it. Simple, clear, concise. Not very imaginative, but at least you know what you're buying.

EVO 4G - This sounds like a movie Michael Jackson would've starred in, or an electric car from Hyundai. Probably too futuristic for its own good.

Advantage - iPhone 4

Domain Names

HTC EVO - Lands on a default WordPress site that will soon be getting a takedown notice from Apple. - Does not resolve to a website though the domain is not available for purchase (yes, I checked).

Advantage - HTC EVO 4G (I'd rather end up anywhere but a splog.)

Best Anagrams

Apple iPhone 4I plugged "Apple iPhone" and "HTC EVO G" into the Internet Anagram Server to see which phone gave the best results...

Apple iPhone - Alien Hep Pop, Oh Ape Nipple, Ha Penile Pop and a couple thousand more.

HTC EVO G - Vetch Go, and that's it.

Advantage - Apple iPhone 4

Google Fights

The best two out of three wins...

Apple iPhone 4 owners are pompous assholes - 2,140 results

HTC EVO 4G owners are pompous assholes - 923 results

Probably not a big surprise in the results there.

Winner: HTC EVO 4G

the Apple iPhone 4 will start world war III - 15,500,000 results

the HTC EVO 4G will start world war III - 17,700,000 results

I think this means that SkyNet will be fork off of Android and not iOS4.

Winner: iPhone 4

Justin Bieber loves him some Apple iPhone 4 - 1,410,000,000 results

HTC EVO 4GJustin Bieber loves him some HTC EVO 4G - 1,370,000,000 results

Civilization has fallen much further than I suspected. Over a BILLION results for each of these? We're all losers on this one, but...

Winner: HTC EVO 4G

Advantage: HTC EVO 4G

Leprechaun, Unicorn and Troll Approvals

HTC EVO 4GApple iPhone 4 - The iPhone has received approvals from the Unicorn Telephone Approval Authority and the Troll Technical Standards Group for operation in fantasy lands.

HTC EVO 4G - The EVO has received all three approvals, so can be used in any fantasy world including Canada.

Advantage: HTC EVO 4G

Virtual Coin Flip - Best of 11

HTC EVO 4GThe virtual coin flipper was used at I chose the US $1 Thomas Jefferson for its rounded industrial design:

Apple iPhone 4 - Heads

HTC EVO 4G - Tails

Results: T-H-T-T-H-T-T-T-T-H-T

Advantage: HTC EVO 4G


The HTC EVO 4G has bested the Apple iPhone 4G by a score of 4-2 in this head-to-head matchup of smartphones. BBspot does not bear any responsibility for your satisfaction when purchasing either phone. Brian Briggs is not an agent of the dark lord Sauron. Results not valid in Wisconsin. Your mileage may vary.
