Sorry I wasn't able to help, but after a quick search around the Net I discovered that your problem isn't that unusual with this phone. It appears to be a problem with the HTC touchscreen itself; and it only be solved by replacing it.
RE: Samsung. From an earlier post you will know that I also have a Galaxy S, which has been faultless in the (almost) 2 years that I have had it. The AMOLED screen on it is the best display I have ever see. The colours are rich and vibrant, and you can read it easily in bright sunlight. Also, you can flash the phone with the latest Firmware without any fear of harm. It's very hard to 'brick' it.
If u can deal with the bulkiness and the weight, then u got urself a very decent fone. Everything is done nicely here. I had the LG 3D for a day before this, and thats got a better display ,better 3D options,and almost 8 GB of internal memory + its much cheaper , but trust me, it doesnt even come close to the feeling u have when u hold the EVO 3D in ur hands.

That was the moment I said goodbye the Sony Ericsson, soo I ll say goodbye to HTC now.
Was always very happy with Nokia phones last one the N900.
Tomorrow I ll give Samsung a chance, going to get the Galaxy Note...keep fingers crossed :)

Go to Settings/Language & keyboard/Touch Input/Text input/Calibration tool.
If that doesn't work repeat the process but instead of Calibration tool select Reset calibration.
Got my HTC Evo 3D 6.months ago and not really happy with it all…1st the issue is the weak battery and now since a few days I am getting trouble with the touchscreen response. I can’t type anymore in the landscape mode, noone of the keys in the bottom line is responding!??. When using the keyboard in the portrait mode noone of the key on its left is responding….Anyone any idea !???
is there any problem with the phone? e.g lagging, battery problems, or any other problem? please reply asap!

The screen is 3d COMPATABLE i.e. It can view pictures that you take in 3D mode, and also 3D videos and 3D games.
For anything else, i.e. making calls, sending messages etc it defaults to a 2D (or normal) mode.
I think this is what you are asking.

Not only the camera is 3d but the screen is also 3d. and its the screen which damages your eye sight.
Ok lets get this right. This phone has a 3d screeen and cameras. Its able to capture 3d footage and and view 3d graphic. For example 3d videos, pictures and games are able to be viewed in 3d on this device and also capture 3d footage on this phone. Its a great phone it has good spec and a good user interface. Hoped this helped. Thank you.
It's an excellent phone. But only two demerits. U can't read screen in the sun and batery if u r useing 3g is finish quickly.

Do you actually OWN one of these phones, because everyone who has one knows that ONLY the camera is 3D; the rest of the phone is a standard 2D perspective.
Can you switch the phone view from 3d to 2d??i know there is a 2d/3d button but that only works for changing the camera capturing mode.....i have heard a lot of times that the 3d damages the eyesight.r....i want to use this phone as a 2d phone??? I am a heavy user i want to text,mail and play games without caring for the proper angle and stuff simply i am not interested in its 3d features i want to use it as a regular 2d phone....
evo3d owners kindly guide me

I've had Android phones for a long time and know how to 'tweak' them to their optimum performance, but the biggest power drain is the Sense UI. Even the HTC bosses admit that:
So there is nothing you can do do improve the battery life. Just go into your settings and see what is using most of the battery; it shows that it is the Display. The Evo is stuck with Android v2.3.4 and Sense 3.0. Both of these should have been updated by HTC a long time ago, but they can't be bothered. So much for customer service !
I also own a Galaxy S which only has a 1500mAh battery, but I get 5, YES 5 days use from a single charge where the Evo struggles to last one day.
I've done everything possible to make the battery last longer, I turn OFF 3G, WiFi, Background Data, and living wallpaper but the battery still drinks power because of the antiquated firmware and software.
Ive was actually forced into the EVO 3D after my son destroyed my EVO 4G and the insurance company only had 3D's. Well i gotta say its the best phone ive owned even compared to my iPhones ive had (3g, 3gs, 4s0 the battery life isnt horrible if you work it right but if you hammer it it dies pretty dam fast thats the only down side really, other wise its faster and smoother then any other phone ive owned
I've had my Evo 3D for a month now and I think it's one of the worst phones I have ever owned !
The colours are very pale, they look really awful, and in sunlight it is almost impossible to see the screen.
Everyone knows about the battery life and how bad it is; I had to purchase a 3500mAh one just to make it last longer than one day. I think this is due to the Sense UI, which sucks the life out of the battery. I tried several different launchers, but none of them display properly. The screen seems to have a weird resolution.
The inbuilt messaging app is a joke, even with the text size turned up to 'Largest' it looks tiny. I had to change to Go SMS Pro.
The dialer is also garish, I ended up installing ExDialer to make it reasonable.
Camera, don't even go there! The 3D option is just a gimmick. You can't print your photos in 3D, you can't send them in 3D, so what's the point?
In the UK you can now buy this phone for as low as £207, which says it all!
Would I recommend this phone to anyone? Not likely!
