I've got HTC EVO 3D for 4 days now and i can say that i'm more than satisfied with it. It's my sixth HTC so far so i know what i'm talking about.
The reason for i brought this phone is that i wanted a contract-free phone an it had a killer PRICE for VALUE. In my country, the GSM version, is sold with 280 euro (free of any contract). The package included class 6 8GB MicroSD and a complimentary car charger. The HTC Sensation is sold with 450 euro and LG Optimus 3D with 440 euro (free of any contract). Both those phones are in the same league with EVO 3D, but their price is much higher.
To be honest, i don't give a damn about 3D and i have a Nikon D90, so phone cameras are of no interest for me as a main photo source, so i'm more than satisfied with its 5 mp camera.
The phone is very responsive and it does everything perfectly (so far :P), but i'm not gonna give a review of the phone.
The battery life is not impresive (despite it has 1730 mAh), but WiFi is allways on so it might improve if I turn it off. Overall, the battery sustains a day of work without charging with medium usage and still has around 30% in the evening...oddly, better than my coleagues iPhone 4(S)'s battery.
Bottom line: For 5 years i'm a smartphone intensive user (starting with HTC Tytn II) and I was very aware of HTC EVO 3D's pros/cons before buying it. The reason that i brought this phone, as i have said at the begining, is the price reported to its value. If the price would have been the same as the other 2 smartphones (Sensation and Optimus 3D) I would never considered buying it. But so, it was a more than attractive offer...with a 3d flavour ;)
Important note to all who doesnt know this:
HTC EVO 3D, you do NOT!!! have to use 3D glasses to play/watch 3D stuff,
This is the latest/newest technology of 3D, which doesnt use 3D Glasses like in the cinema for example.
lg,samsung etc....are working on new 3D screens which doesnt use 3D Glasseslike the ones found in the stores now,but its hard to make a big screen 3D without glasses, htc evo 3d have it because it have 4,3 inch screen not 52 inch for example...
they have managed to create 32inch(MAX at the moment) a 3D TV without glasses but are not sold yet,just being showed in market,and such...
Biggi, forgot 1 more thing
the htc evo got a amazing CAMERA BUTTON like a normal camera ,(SHUTTER BUTTON ,press to take pictures)
the htc sensation does NOT have camera button
Biggi, 20 Feb 2012What is difference between Htc Sensation and EVO 3D? In my country Evo 3D is cheaper 200€ than... morefirst here you have the comparison between the two:
HTC EVO 3D GOT:
-3D SCREEN,(WATCH 3D MOVIES,PICTURES,GAMES...)
-two 5MP CAMERAS ON THE BACK(3D CAMERA,3D VIDEO)
-camera records 2D AND 3D AT 720P(RESOLUTION 1280x720)
-1,3mp front camera
-1,2ghz dual core , 1GB RAM(1024mb ram)
-GPU(GRAPHIC) ADRENO 220
-Battery 1730mAh (holds longer )
HTC sensation got:
- S-LCD screen NOT 3D
-8mp camera on the back
-camera records 2d in 1080p (resolution 1920x1080)
-vga camera front (0,3mp means vga)
-1,2ghz dual core , 768mb ram
-GPU(GRAPHIC) ADRENO 220
-Battery 1520mAh (holds less then the htc evo 3D )
if you are looking for a phone with full hd 1080p camera and dont care about the 3D VIDEOS,3D GAMING,3D PICTURES,3D CAMERA VIDEO/PICUTES then buy "htc sensation"
if you do care about /or want to try out the new cool technology of 3D VIDEOS,3D GAMING,3D PICTURES,3D CAMERA VIDEO/PICUTES Then buy ------------>"HTC EVO 3D"
remember that the evo 3d is faster because it got more RAM then the sensation also both got dlna(if you have tv with wireless ,you can play games,see videos,pictures directly from ur phone to the tv,
also they both got MHL,so if you buy a cheap mhl to hdmi adapter/cable,you can play games,see videos,pictures directly from ur phone to the tv(check youtube,write htc evo 3d mhl or dlna
the difference with the mhl on the these 2 phones is that the HTC EVO 3D ,you can play 3D GAMES, SEE 3D VIDOES AND PICTURES on your tv (if you have a tv or pc-screen with 3D) the htc sensation cannot bec it doesnt have 3D
just a note:on the HTC EVO 3D , everything you do in 3D can be used in 2D,so you dont have too use 3D ,you can turn 3d off anytime in everything
What is difference between Htc Sensation and EVO 3D? In my country Evo 3D is cheaper 200€ than sensation. :D

Biggi, 20 Feb 2012will htc evo 3d get the ics???yes it will get, this have already been announced by htc, it will get ics4.0 ,

This phone is superb. I can give 8/10 mark. The screen pixels is very good compared to galaxy s2. i hav used it and warranty until this aug 12 and still not rooted. but the background apps is running too many and used my RAM too much. sometime lagging and i compared with iphone 4 is better in term of smoothness.
Even if I have killed a process still got too many ram used. anyone know how to fix this?
the phone is realy great!
If you think the 3d is bad, you should get a pair of new glasses...
one day you guys are going to wake up that you are buying a phone and not a camera,
face it a phones a phone and a camera is a camera .a camera on a phone is a stop gap solution when you forget to bring your camera.
one other thing it comes with 8 gig of external memory plus premium navigation...................i did not see this mentioned ??
it is an android powerhouse, pqcked with every feature you need. the 3d efffect is good, I really like this handset
The phone is excellent! Not good 3D though, but everything else its very good on it!
Very very fast, i will rate the phone 8/10 due to bad 3D and heavy weight the rest its just amazing!
Anonymous, 17 Feb 2012no. 1 smart phone as i know.....lol you dont know very much do you?
This phone is terrible compared to the Gnex or S2
the 3D is horrible
Ive had this phone after owning a Galaxy SII and a HTC Desire.
The experience is zippy, very light and nimble. HTC Sense is great, I would recommend it to anyone who wants there facebook stuff easily accessible from there mobile. Its also a nicer experience on the Evo 3D than on the Sensation.
Coming from a Galaxy SII, the main difference is the slickness. I find a subtle difference in web page and menu scrolling, I suspect this is because of the heft of HTC Sense weighing down the CPU, even when it running in the background. Not that it is a problem, in fact it doesnt even register as an irritation but its a trade off you will make from a Samsung with minimal skins and widgets.
I didn't purchase this for 3D ability but as a capable smart phone, the 3D is quite a nice treat for the occassional game or if you've got a 3D TV its worth a try. You cant really go wrong at the price its going for, its a strong solid phone with a Upgrade in the pipeline.
It certainly is an excellent phone, and it has a price drop at the moment. If your in the UK you can get this at a significant discount from ASDA if your quick.
