In the UK we enjoy the privilege of FREE SPEECH.
I notice that you don't mind opening your mouth and spouting your view of the phone, but don't think that I should be allowed to state mine.
What is your problem. If you dont like the phone, dont condemn it for others. This phone is great for every day use. I own it. Stop wasting your time and trying to convince all that the phone is bad. If you dont like it, well thats you.
evo 3d, 11 Apr 2012When the android 4.0 update comes to Evo 3D??? Isn't it released yet, I can't update it yetits not released yet, take it easy ,htc are working on many phones you know ,it takes some time.
the ice cream sandwich 4.0 will be released with HTC SENSE 3,6 not 4.0 , still good because developers will simply add htc sense 4.0 to evo and other phones..i mean its available right now for rooted mobiles ics 4.0 and sense 4.0 , ive tried it,its goooood!
usually i'm not posting comments on the web but the comments of haters on this phone made me waste some time to add my comments , i tested alot of phones before i consider buying EVO 3D , battery life as most users comment that is not good , i say from personal expierience that is last a bit over 48 hours with just phone and messages usage, well it last full 5 hours playing need for speed on it , signal reception bad ? i live in cyprus where signal sucks and i never had problems with this phone unlike some other phones i tried and had ( not saying witch don't want to depromote any phone ), bad and laggy ? are you ppl serius it's faster than any other dual core phone out there and in all general the phone runs very smooth and fast, so ppl if you own any other phone and you are happy with it just post how happy you are on that phones comment and don't depromote any other models/brands.
rusinstein, 12 Apr 2012still the same sense, if you don't like HTC, then get rid of your HTC phone..@ rusinstein
Read my post dated 8th April - I tried to sell it on eBay but it didn't attract any buyers, despite advertising it at £199. None of the Evo 3D on sale were selling.
The Evo 3D is like herpes - you can't get rid of it!

I'm not 'bashing' the phone as you phrase it, I am just pointing out that it has problems; and those faults lies with HTC for not supporting it. HTC have known for a LONG time that there is an issue with the battery and that the cause of it is the Sense UI, but they have let the owners down by not addressing the problem. This is what HTC's chief product officer had to say.
HTC's chief product officer believes HTC's Sense UI has got too complicated.
In an interview at the company's press conference at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Kouji Kodera told Pocket-lint that the company's user interface, loved by millions of users around the world, has just become too cluttered.
"From the original Sense up to Sense 3.5 we added too many things. The original concept was that it had to be simple and it had to be easy to use and we had that philosophy, but over time it got cluttered," Kodera said.
The candid acknowledgement comes as the company is preparing to launch a new version of its Sense UI - Sense 4 - for its newest phones, the HTC One X, HTC One S and HTC One V.
"There where too many things in there," Kodera added. "Even on the home screen we had four or five icons before consumers got a chance to add things themselves. For the HTC One range we have taken it down to Sense 2 again."
AND THAT IS FROM HTC THEMSELVES ! They KNOW what the problem is !
There are parts of the phone I love... The email widget is the best I have ever seen, it is brilliant. I also like the... er.... er.... well, I like the email widget.

I think you are bashing the EVO 3D here. Please stop.
Information for you to think about:
Smartphones are not designed for battery life, especially not while being left on a table.
Autostereoscopic screens naturally lose their colour and brightness due to an extra glass/light guide layer for 3D purposes.
Selling a phone depends first on the branding done for that phone.
The Samsung Galaxy S2 uses the same MHL TV adapter.
Freefaller, 08 Apr 2012@ abhi That's the 2nd mistake I've made lately. The 1st mistake was buying this piece of junk!LOL i would love to buy that so called piece of awesomeness (HTC EVO 3D).
Had my HTC Evo 3d for a month now and i should say that am complete satisfied. I bought this for 250£ (207£ by ASDA has been sold out already), for this price it does a lot better than the Iphone 4g. I was a iphone owner till date and i can say Evo 3d is miles apart in terms of performance and UI, no more turning back to apple Os and i love Android the way it is. I will happily recommend this phone to my friends and family. The 3d is just a addon and i wont recomment this phone for 3d only purpose.
I saw lot of -ve comments on this but to be honest this phone perform better than any 500£ handset for the price tag of 250£...Just go for it

I'm not going to persue this any further, but just to reinforce what I was saying, go to HTC's OWN Blog page and read all the complaints from Evo owners on the comments section.
A LOT of Evo owners are saying exactly what I was trying to point out; that HTC have deserted the Evo 3D.
There are a LOT of people complaining about the lack of support for this model.

I agree with a lot of your comments but also disagree with some of them.
As a mid price phone, it is only £207 now, it is good value... but...
I don't agree with your comments about the battery life. The display is always ON, whether you are using it or whether it is on 'Idle'. Both my phones have been on idle for the last 2 hours. When I checked my SGS, the display was drawing 42& of the battery's power; the Evo 3D was drawing 57%. THAT is where the problem occurs. The SGS has had regular updates, unlike the Evo, and Samsung listened to their users and addressed the problem with the battery, whereas HTC haven't. As I has stated before, I get 5 days use out of a single charge on the SGS due to updated Firmware.
Since i got this phone it never restarted or froze. I acutaly get better signal than my previous LGkm900 & htc wilfire s. I have no problems while talking to it, i can even hear it louder and clear now. Before i had this phone my girl firend was always angry i didnt hear what she was saying on the phone.. now the problem is gone :P i hear her loud and clear. The phone is working fine, latest games are running without a problem and it's the first phone that i can read the display in the sun. For me is a big difference and at a verry low cost. And by the way.. i tested my phone.. I didnt touch the phone after i charged it for a whole day long.. only 5% of the battery was gone in 24h. The battery drains fast only when the display is on. Great phone, i love it.. and at it's price it does much more than it should.
@Freefaller and Ray
I understand your arguments guys,i know this beloved phone of my has issues.Just like most smartphones out thr.But do not sound as if its a waste lf money coz not everyone thinks like that.Read most reviews in this very column,most people are indeed satisfied with their EVos and i am one of them.You should also consider its lower price.The SGS2 was the best phone of 2011..no doubt.But HTC came up with something good here.Dont make this beast sound unusable coz i am using it now and i am happy.Thats all i am saying.Not everything is up to scratch but still this is an amazing phone.I will stick to my 4 out of 5 rating.minus 1 for battery life and updates.

I appreciate that you love your Evo 3D and I respect that; but you have to realise that many people, including myself, find it seriously lacking, and you should respect their views.
This following are comments from a review in PCMag, a very highly respected magazine. The article includes many fine points of the phone, but also states.....
When it comes to basic phone functions, the EVO 3D fails. I struggled with reception and Internet connectivity issues all through my test period. Calls sounded muddy and garbled, with some syllables swallowed by the phone. The earpiece and speakerphone were both of adequate volume, but voices were muddy on both sides of the connection.
The HTC EVO 3D is the most baffling phone I've worked with in a long time. It has a super-fast processor, but awful reception and 3G connectivity. The 3D blows your mind, until it gives you a headache. It connects to TVs using an adapter nobody can find. It's a bunch of brilliant, but half-baked ideas.
If I were rating its spec sheet, the EVO 3D would get an easy Editors' Choice. I mean, come on! Dual-core, high-res, 3D, 4G, it's everything you want in tomorrow's smartphone. But the EVO 3D experience has enough missing parts that it's a buyer-beware, early-adopter phone. Mainstream users looking for a Sprint smartphone should stick with the proven Samsung Epic 4G ($149, 4 stars) instead.

To be fair, it was an expert review I linked to rather than just being someone elses opinion. The reviewer spends a lot of time with a lot of different phones, so they know what they are talking about.
My own personal experience with the Evo was a poor one. I spent something like 10 minutes with my sisters Evo and was distinctly unimpressed. The 3D was underwhelming and a real pain to get the phone at the correct angle to see the 3D effects properly. Those 10 minutes wrestling with the screen actually gave me a headache.
Anyway, I'll leave you alone to play with your HTC and wish you the best of luck.
