A sprint criterion is one in which this organization rate devices to be environmentally preferable to an average wireless device. This is arrived from extensive research and forums with green electronics non governmental institutions and corporate responsibility advisory services. The criteria also identifies with areas that are relevant to the customer and also environmentally meaningful. This sprint criterion reflects both environmental mission and green specifications (Glen, 60)
HTC EVO according to sprint criteria has earned points on its ability to cut down on environmentally harmful materials such as lowering the levels of PVC and Beryllium which are harmful to the environment. This has been done though designing the device and using materials that is friendlier to the environment than other used by normal electronic devices. The battery is made of low mercury containing lithium to ensure in case of improper disposal the environment does not contain high levels of this heavy metal as it is poisonous. This has also been done and the features of the device not compromised making it even more attractive to environmentalists.
The ability to manage the power by the users through a proper interface that allows the user to alter his phones working to cater to his energy needs is another criteria sprint have used to classify this phone, the device has full visual and audio alerts that notify user when the battery is full so as power cables' un mounted so save energy and notifications when the battery is empty and user needs to charge it to prevent spoilage of the battery.
