Oh, lastly, (I forgot to mention this in my first post), using the CPU scaler (which is what i mentioned for overclocking) can also be used to lower the total frequency as well, using **On-Demand** frequency adjustment. Basically, I have mine set to 384mhz on both processors when it is idle, and only has a minor workload. When using games, or other tasks (or multi-tasking) I have it set to use the full 1.2ghz. I have not flashed my kernel as of yet, so my phone is not currently over-clocked. (That being said, i still have no problems running TEGRA 2 games!). I do plan on overclocking it (possibly this weekend), let me know if you guys would like me to post my results as well!
This phone can actually play games rather well! I have my phone rooted. By rooting my phone, I can even play TEGRA (Nvidia) games on my phone :D. I use this app called Chainfire 3D, which allows me to emulate drivers for NVIDIA, and QUALCOMM. I was also able to use this app called Swapper, which allows me to emulate a SWAP space on my SD Card (which is basically a page file index, for all you windows users!). The benefit of SWAP on your SD card is that, it is flash memory, making it faster transfer time (latency if you will) than a regular computer hard drive. And finally, you can always flash your kernel, making you able to over-clock your phone. I would personally recommend it, just remember, rooting your phone generally causes parts of the warranty to be void! (Doesn't mean your insurance though!!!)
This phone is actually pretty good when you root it, and flash the kernel. Using Chinfire 3D once its rooted, you can mimic NVIDIA GPU with it even (TEGRA). I can play full TEGRA games on my phone now (such as Dungeon Defenders) at full graphics quality, with no lag, what-so-ever. Not to mention, make the **Already** fast CPU, faster by overclocking it.
That, and finally, using Swapper to make a Swap file on your SD card (mine is set to 500mb) to use as a swap file. (for all you windows users, its like a page file index, however being on an SD card, its faster than your HDD on your computer, since its flash media).
sking , 14 Nov 2011best mobile than HTC evo 3d is Samsung galaxy s2,better mobile than galaxy s2 is Nokia n8!still old age man
The evo 3d will be getting ICS..not this year tho and i had this phone but it didnt suit me for my needs. Ima gamer and i know alot of other people are too. This phone isnt that great for games, it has a few glitches that a gamer does not like. If your a gamer like me and your looking to get a new phone,try the motorola photon 4g,i have it,and its a gamers phone. But im not saying the evo 3d is bad,its just not for a gamer.
faisal, 29 Nov 2011would we b able to upgrade ICS on EVO..Yes HTC has listed it in the devices that will get the update.
well i jus got this phone ... and i loving it ... beauty in the beast ... brilliant... if u lik 3D then this is for you... now waiting for the ICS update...
sking , 14 Nov 2011best mobile than HTC evo 3d is Samsung galaxy s2,better mobile than galaxy s2 is Nokia n8!dear i think u don't have use galaxy s i9000 or galaxy s2. these both r way batter then 3d evo and Nokia n8. i have both. ok
I bought it 10 days ago it's wonderful and you can mount up battery life by installing some apps such as mobo task killer,
start up cleaner, start up manager and advanced task manager.
I was fan of nokia, when I bought HTC EVO 3D I realize I was wrong. remember just HTC
just two words i wud like to say about this monster
use it to believe it.
This is a phenomenal smartphone. Two thumbs up. Unfortunately this HTC EVO 3D is not marketed here in the Philippines. I bought mine in Singapore. Bought this for 740 Singaporean Dollars.
Battery life is good for one day including texting and calling but if you use it for web browsing and gaming, battery would last at least 5 to 6 hours.
AnonD-30453, 17 Nov 2011please is this better than the sensation XE ? please i need an answer ASAP!! thank you!Buy the Sensation XE...is the top of HTC family phones, the reason to say that is because people are complaining about battery of the EVO and camera 3D is not that good...so, instead of buying "cat" ...go and buy the "rabbit"...taste will be better!
got mine already..very nice phone...
very fast response
camera quality is above average
good software bundle
low battery life approx 5-6 hours (solution: buy an extended battery 3500mAh online with casing)
over sensitive buttons below (can you set this)
factory keyboard software installed is not that good
easy to dent alum parts compared to the iphone.
max, 15 Nov 2011Nokia n8 is not even close to galaxy s2 and htc evo 3D Think before posting (trolling)it is a better phone than evo 3d. evo 3d has a really poor battery life but sensation xe has a a good battery life. and specially if you are into music i think this is the best phone that is in the market for you at the moment.
sensation xe in a good smart phone and its one of good smart phones from HTC & evo 3D too. i'm not sure about choose between evo 3D & sensation XE.if XE have a higher cpu & higher camera BUT evo 3D have a more RAM.and ram is a important part of phone too.and it show itself when we want improve our android version(with updating or with upgrating).it is not hidd that 256 MB of RAM is not littele diffrence.evo 3D's overclack of cpu be could about 1.8 Ghz even.BUT BUT BUT we can't improve RAM of each other of them with any thing.then if we want deside about these both,we must pay atention to constant & fixed part of them
