It is definitely the best phone on Sprint, and a worthy successor to the original Evo.Engadget70HTC EVO 3D reviewUltimately, we've come to think of the EVO 3D as a Sensation with a lesser camera, cheaper materials, worse battery life, and without the ability to roam worldwide.CNET90HTC Evo 3D ReviewThe HTC Evo 3D improves on its predecessor with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and a larger battery. ... The smartphone doesn't offer much internal memory, and call quality could be better. The glasses-free 3D display has limited viewing angles and depth of field.SlashGear90HTC EVO 3D REviewIt packs plenty of punch with a dual-core processor, upgraded graphics, that amazingly clear and beautiful qHD high-res screen and it has Sense 3.0 so what else do you need?BGR80HTC EVO 3D reviewThe EVO 3D ... offers a complete end-to-end Android experience with HTC’s Sense 3.0 UI, and coupled with improvements in every area over the original EVO 4G, plus the ability to capture and view 3D content, it makes for one hell of a compelling package.

Other Than That, There Isn't Much Else Positve To Say About This Phone. Sense Is Very Buggy, Power & Control Crazy (Doesn't Play Well With Anything), And Ever Since Sprint Made The PR Move To Remove The "SPY" App That They Placed Onto The Phones In The First Place (And Then Secretly Replaced It With Another "SPY" App Called SMITH (Like The Agent From The Matrix)) The HTC EVO 3D Is Buggier Then Ever. There Is A Reason Sprint Made This Phone Reach It's End Of Life "EOL" Months After Hitting The ShelfEngadget Reader90May 21, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.

It also has 3d and qhd, which makes it still the best 3d phone out there.Engadget Reader70March 1, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A dependable product that doesn't really stand out from the competition. - EngadgetEngadget Reader80February 22, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I have been using this phone since launch and have had no real issues, unlike my Evo 4G that was replaced with a faulty display. I have had this phone in and Otterbox Commuter case and it has taken several dives to the floor with no lasting effects. The latest update, Jan 2012, from Sprint has dramatically improved the battery life! I really enjoy the 3D especially when it is hooked into my LG 3D tv for viewing the pictures. Granted when I show off the 3D some people love it and can see it easily, while others just hate it.Engadget Reader70February 2, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I was excited to jump into the world of Android with this phone but the combination of this phone just feeling cheap and the poor phone reception pushed me back to iOS. The cameras are poor under low light.. or with any direct light. I love the 3D photo and video taking capabilities but moving around the OS is just sluggish enough to be annoying (quite possibly Android not implementing dual-core support for general OS usage within ginger bread). Overall disappointment.Engadget Reader90January 4, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Great overall phone. There are things I want on my phone that this doesn't have but you can neverfind the perfect phone. AND PLEASE get it outa yur head that 3D is just a feature on this phone, it does a lot of other stuff and you probably won't use 3D much I would say. Right now this is the best bargain on Sprint besides the Nexus for free.Engadget Reader70December 23, 2011Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A dependable product that doesn't really stand out from the competition. - EngadgetEngadget Reader100November 7, 2011Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The display does not match what Samsung is putting out right now. That being said I wouldn't trade this phone for anything on the market right now. Sense 3.0 changes the Android experience for the better. The 3D is not really for me even though it is a cool novelty. I love that this phone has a dedicated camera button, battery life is a big upgrade from the EVO 4G, and the new unlock screen makes it hard to switch Android devices (which I do often).Engadget Reader90August 29, 2011Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Overall, this phone is a great smartphone, but the caveat is that you always need to keep a charging cable nearby. Android, mixed with HTC and a strong user base have made this phone a good choice. The 3D feature is really cool, and the display is beautiful.Engadget Reader80August 26, 2011Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws. - EngadgetEngadget Reader90August 6, 2011Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Great device, the only issues I've had is occasional GPS Lock issues (can be fixed in a software update), The Radio signal is 1-2 bars below what my EVO 4G gets, and the battery life is terrible. The 3D is amazing, it does look a little pixelated when it switches to 3D more versus the standard 2D screen mode.Engadget Reader90July 29, 2011Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category. We highly recommend it. - Engadgetkstagg80July 5, 2011Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I walked by a Sprint kiosk and saw them selling the EVO3D. I at first dismissed the phone as I was waiting for the Galaxy S II (Samsung Within on Sprint) and really am not big fan of 3D. But when they told me if I traded in my EVO4G to them I would get $150 and walk out with this phone for $66 - I was sold.I don't see the 3D as the selling point. Unless you are in good lighting, the colors are really "off" in the pictures and the SpiderMan game, while cool, was giving me a headache. Like I said, not a huge fan of 3D. What I AM a huge fan of on this phone is:- Dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon- Androidâ„¢ 2.3 with HTC Senseâ„¢ 3.0- 4GB eMMC / RAM 1GB- 1730 mAh battery- Dedicated camera button- Access to htc HUB for free downloadable content for htc phonesNot a big fan of the 8GB SD Card - I mean, they could have really stepped up the size on that. I was pushing the limits on my apps with the EVO on that. Disappointed with it. If you are on Google+, you can upload your images and video up there (don't share if you don't want to) and help limit how much space is used on your SD card. Of course you can use other similar cloud options.Also - why make the camera lens flush with the rest of the body of the phone? I picked up a platinum case from Best Buy with built-in kickstand which protects the lens. Not cheap though at $35. More than twice the cost of what it cost me for the phone. I like it though because it allows the silver buttons of the EVO3D to show through and I think they're pretty slick.So is the 3D a gimmick? The jury is still out. I've taken some cool pics and right now not many other phones can do this. I'm sure it'll only get better with software upgrades to this phone as well. If anyone tells me I bought this phone for the 3D though, I remind them about the benefits and how much the phone actually cost me - then watch their collective jaws drop.For all other options to customize your EVO (4G/EVO3D), I highly recommend visiting goodandevo.net.
