Excerpt: Being the successor to the HTC EVO 4G comes with a massive responsibility, since many consider it to be the best device of 2010. The has been one of the most anticipated devices of the year, featuring some of the best specs we’ve seen on any Android device until now. It ...
Excerpt: This zippy, albeit somewhat gimmicky, high-end phone comes loaded with features. The HTC Evo offers 3D capabilities, can serve as a mobile hotspot, and has a large dedicated camera button and physical switch to easily toggle from 2D to 3D modes.
Pros: Easy to navigate and use, Large screen, Battery and casing are easy to remove, Helpful instruction manual
Cons: Relatively poor call quality in our tests, Thick, heavy design
Pros: The 3-D filming feature is fun, plain and simple, regardless of its limitations. Cloud-based music and video streams without major hiccups. Screen resolution is amazing. Call quality is a double thumbs up.
Cons: Battery life is less than optimal. Bootloader should be unlocked. The included 8GB microSD card is not enough storage, especially for a phone capable of 3-D captures. Device doesn’t come with ear buds. I want my kickstand. Google Voice notifications repeatedly failed in my tests.
Conclusion: The 3D imaging capabilities of the Evo 3D aren’t integrated as well as they should be for this to be a killer 3D phone. You can’t properly view 3D pictures you’ve taken and there’s no sign of the promised 3D movies to download yet from HTC Watch.
Summary: The HTC Evo 3D runs on Android Android 2.3 and is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor. It has a 4.3-inch, 540 x 960 pixel display. The HTC Evo 3D also comes with a 5.0-megapixel camera that is able to record videos at 1080p.
Pros: + Impressive 4.3-inch glasses-free 3D qHD display, + Fast and responsive, + Dual 5-megapixel cameras
Cons: - 3D display may cause dizziness, - Not easy to capture 3D media, - Cannot view .mpo file in the computer, - Transceiver unit, - Battery, - Charger, - Micro-USB cable, - Headset
Conclusion: The HTC EVO 3D is a worthy successor to the extremely popular HTC EVO 4G. Even if you don’t care about 3D, it’s a got a top of the line dual core CPU, a qHD resolution 4.3” display, a very good camera for 2D photos and video as well as 3D recording and slightly improved battery life over the EVO...
Pros: Dual core CPU, large qHD display, 4G, great design and build.
Cons: Battery life so-so with 4G turned on, 3D hurt our brains after extended viewing.
Summary: It's a bit of a stretch to call the EVO 3D a breakthrough, especially since there's not a lot of premium 3D content yet. The ecosystem will need to catch up to the hardware, just as in the TV world.
Excerpt: HTC's Evo 4G legacy is something of a rarity in the smartphone industry. Sprint used it as a gateway drug for its WiMAX service — "4G" back when that nomenclature meant something (and was used to great effect in a huge marketing campaign ).
Pros: Sturdy design, Fast hardware, 3D optional (but does work!)
Cons: Small viewing angles for 3D, Some nasty software glitches, Symptoms of 3D can include dizziness, eye strain, nausea...
