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.
This is truly a greeaaat phone I've had now for over a month. Performance is superb, battery life for such a high performer good at approx one and a half day, brilliant big screen, truly solid all round, the weight and build quality very reassuring. This is definitely a heavy duty phone, built for challenging uses and highly recommended for anyone who is looking for a NO-nonsense smartphone always at the ready all the time. Highly, highly recommended. Nothing beats it quite frankly.

I want to buy a new phone and i can't decide if Evo 3d or Sensat... moreHi,
I was facing the same questions last month. These are the points I considered:
Evo 3D has 1gb memory Sensation has 768. This 256Mb makes for daily use (the SENSE looks smother on EVO 3D) and also it may be good to have 1Gb when migrating to ICS
EVO 3D is heavier than Sensation.
EVO 3D camera suck when compared with sensation
EVO 3D has 3D. (if that matters to you).
EVO 3D didn't not presented the 2 serious issues that haunted sensation "death grip" and "touch scree fail".
(you should look on internet for that).
So, I decided to buy a evo 3D. I don't really care for 3D, and I think it is heavy, but the extra memory and the minor occurrence of death grip guide me to this one (also it costed 40 bucks less than sensation and 200 bucks less than sensation xe).
BTW sensation and sensation XE are almost the same thing
finally, HTC sense rocks... the software is basically the same on the three of them. None of them will disappoint you.
imran, 14 Feb 2012does it run hd games just like Galaxy S2 ??yes, it runs hd games.
Best specs mobile that will last till 2012; 3D effect is great without glasses and processor is really fast; battery time lasts 2 and half days with normal usuage. Build quality is great and screen size is perfect for watching movies or any videos Camera quality is great as is the video indeed this is a must to have mobile phone and a great value for money. Highly recommended purchase.
Some new stuff done for the HTC EVO 3D:

overclocking that you can choose up to 2ghz dual core (1,8ghz fine and stable)
custom tweaks,amazing for example if you hold the volume button it changes song + is next ,- is previous song when the screen is off.
the front camera have been hacked from 1,3mp to 2mp
back camera have been improved with video and photos
3D picture JPS can take up to 4096x 1152 resolution
Some says it can now record 1080p,didnt see that but i did compare the video from lg optimus 3d which does 1080p and the htc evo 3d 720p and they look nearly the same, the lg optimus wins a bit over with the camera ,just a bit(both tried on the same 1080p full-HDTV LCD)

Rahul, 07 Feb 2012really nice phone just battery sucks.Buy many battery joke. Optimize your Battery using android apps the battery saver. the battery sucks depend on your usage. reduce the brightness. turn of 3g and other stuff. lol
dan, 13 Feb 2012how long it last??its depend on your usage and what is your doing on your phone. if only texting I think if will long last at 2days
11, 12 Feb 2012the battery life is useless.If you dont need to use 3g. Use 2g it save a lot of battery energy and reduce the brightness and close apps that you dont want to use. the user is the one who must optimize there phone to save there battery
