Good and EVO

Are early HTC EVO 3D reviews giving you second thoughts?

Evo-3d-retail

The first wave of HTC EVO 3D reviews hit the net courtesy of Engadget, CNET, BGR, This is my next, WSJ, and Phone Scoop today. And, well, let's just say they're not exactly glowing.

Complaints about battery life, poor call quality and wireless performance, and half-baked 3D elements are a common thread in all the write-ups. And while the new EVO still gets highly respectable scores from sites that utilize a rating system (7/10 from Engadget, 4/5 from CNET, 8/10 from This is my next) and no one says to avoid it, there's enough negativity there to sway those who were still on the fence about the device.

Evo-3d-retail (3) I don't take other people's opinions about something I plan to buy too seriously, as it doesn't matter to me what someone else thinks about my gadget preferences, but there's obviously still a lot of value in the observations made in the reviews. I know some folks won't buy anything without getting Engadget's stamp of approval first.

So what did the reviews do to you? Are you more convinced than ever that you're getting (or not getting) the EVO 3D next week? Or are you more confused than ever now that there's some conflicting information out there?

Regardless of what anyone else says, the bottom line is that it's your money. Spend it on what you want, not what people you probably don't know tell you to want. You're the one who has to live with the device day in and day out, so buy what you want, like what you want, and let others do the same.

Thanks for the pics, ArmyAdams!

  • Nice. May be now more people will want it. Thanks best site for Android Info. Doing a great job.

  • I gotta admit, I am a little disappointed by the reviews. I really expected the 3D to get rave reviews…at least on par of what the sensation got. I think I’ll hold off on preordering and wait to play with it in person. Looks like I may be saving my upgrade though….*sigh*…

  • I was all set to get this before I read the reviews. I must admit I am now heavily leaning towards the SGS2 now.

  • I can’t lie I was dead set on getting it, but these reviews are really making me second guess it..sigh, I have it preordered too :/ I don’t know what to think, I have to really play with it in person now and start researching my Plan B and Plan C phones again, just in case

    Coming from someone that has experienced the EVO3d first hand… Based on 3d, its neat, and gimmicky, awesome to show off, but its under appreciated in the value. The processor is so responsive, so fast, and the sense 3.0 UI is very well packaged. Compared to my sense 2.1 mikG rooted evo with sense 3.0 features, the evo3d put it to shame, in speed and comparison.

    Reply
  • I already backed off this device
    Due to the fact that i use go launcher instead of Sense

    So the upgrade to 3D doesnt make sense for me (which is way too gimmicky for me)

    I just hope Sprint can keeping hitting Home Runs with their Devices

    And so far from the early verdicts the 3D feels more like a Double or a Triple, Instead of a Home Run

  • I don’t care what reviewers think, but finding out the bootloader will be locked AND the fact that this phone no longer shoots 1080p, is forcing me to hold out for something else :(…

    I would still get this beast. After all, most if not all of the complaints about the Evo 3D can be fixed with custom ROMs and custom kernels, am I right?

    Reply
  • The biggest problem with these reviews are not just that they are conflicting, but that all of them are fairly superficial with their information. No good examples of camera shots, no good battery drain information, no quantitative or comparative analysis of signal strength or performance.

    These sites have really jumped the gun on these reviews. Some even admit that they haven’t completed battery testing, for instance. Others have reported battery life in entirely casual ways, without sufficient information or reasonable usage patterns (I’m looking at you, Engadget).

    Overall, these reviews give me pause, but not much more than I had earlier today. I still question if the Within(SGS2), next Nexus or iPhone will be better choices. But I also question whether or not any or all of these will show up in a reasonable time frame or at all!

    Reply
  • I’m sure the Evo 3D will be a damn good phone. It just won’t be as much of a jump up in features as we had hoped. I’ll probably keep my Evo 4G awhile longer(still runs great). I really wished HTC focused more on getting a great 2D camera and enhancing the battery life, as opposed to going the 3D route, which very few Evo 4G owners seem to even care about.

    Reply
  • But why buy a phone if you’re just going to put a custom rom as soon as you get it out of the store?

    This phone is still going to be a beast, and a welcome addition to the Sprint stable. I just think that the Photon 4G and Galaxy S2 will be the way to go.

    I know the Photon has a locked bootloader but to be honest, with the hardware on that thing, and the customizations available – it’s so flexible, I wouldn’t care. But I’m holding out till end of July when Galaxy S2 arrives at Sprint’s doors.

    Again – EVO3D – nice phone, awesome internals, 3D just not really needed.

    Reply
  • Hey Marc. The Galaxy S II sold 1,000,000 phones in South Korea alone. I think it will do pretty well here in the states and will “probably” hold off all contenders until the Nexus 3 comes along.

    I say that, but you watch – Kyocera will launch a quadcore 4-paned monster that will prove me wrong.

  • The reviews seem fairly mixed in my opinion. I don’t think I would buy one regardless of how amazing it is, but here’s my two cents:

    Regarding the specs and the *potential*, the EVO 3D is amazing – excellent processor, two screens for a potentially decent 3D interface, and a high-density display. However, just like the EVO 4G when it first came out, it doesn’t seem as amazing as expected. Two or three months in, with hours and hours of Sprint and HTC working together for a proper update, I think we might see something that is a good competitor in the market; nevertheless, at the moment, this device does not seem like something I would recommend to any people I know.

    I really wish I could play with one right now though to actually get a feel for it and say something a bit more useful, but I guess I’ll have to wait until the 24th to get to see the actual device!

  • Not if the bootloader is locked

  • I am completely torn now, I have been wanting this hone for several months and to hear all these negative reviews really has me questioning things. I am coming from an HTC Hero, so no matter what I know I would be amazed, but will I be as pleased. I just looked at Sprint’s specs on the EVO 3D, and in regards to the 1080p issue, they list shoots in 720p with playback up to 1080p, Im not sure if that was changed or worded that way all along and people misread it. You also need an adapter in order to hook it up to your tv through HDMI which you have to buy separately, the EVO doesn’t have this issue. So what should I do? Buy the EVO 3D, the EVO for half the price, or wait a little longer for something to hopefully come out? The EVO is sounding pretty good with it having a better camera, HDMI out, an unlocked bootloader, and a slightly crappier battery. AHHHHH!! Annoying decisions.

    Reply
  • Cool, maybe they’ll drop the price significantly in the first few months and I can buy one off contract for less. Or… I’m still loving my EVO 4G so maybe I’ll just stick with it till the next big thing in 2012!

    I have been torn with my personal buying decision about the Evo 3D since I saw the specs.

    Great processor and qHD screen. Not so great size, weight and battery life. Sense 3.0 is in general a minus, but I would have to live with a while to be sure. I have become very spoiled by my EVO running stock gingerbread (CM7).

    The thing that is odd in my case is that the 3D capture capabilities should be a slam dunk for me, I own a 3D HDTV! Be the lack of displaying that content on my TV other than by plugging my phone into it is seriously compromising that being a useful feature.

    The single largest deciding feature, for me, right now is if the EVO 3D has a car dock available. Don’t laugh, I have been totally spoiled by the convenience of my Evo’s HTC car dock. Whatever things the 3D does better will be overshadowed by the loss of this convenience!

  • Jenn,
    I know you mentioned battery life and Engadget. One thing that really bugged me about their review was the mention that they got 14 hours 44 mins of battery life with ALL the radios on except bluetooth? I’m thinking, my Evo could barely manage 6 hours with 4G on. If this one is managing 14+ with 4G on, then it’s got to be a 20 hr or so battery life with 4G usage moderated by judicious use of the 4G homescreen widget.

    Reply
  • I got to play with it at E3 and I got exactly what I was expecting.. fast application access… good WiFi access and the 3D content (which I thought was a gimmick) was much cooler and more fun than I thought. I think these reviews are are a result of over hype as this device blows everything else away but it may not save all the starving children in Africa with the push of a button.

    Solid,Quality,Cool, State of the art! I will be getting one!

    Reply
  • Well, call me silly, but the lack of a kickstand weighs big for me, I use it a LOT at work. I simply can’t understand why they took it out. I also use Go Launcher so I’m not too concerned with the new Sense. I was hoping a faster processor could help in me taking full high def videos without the terrible pauses and stuttering, but hey, they bumped the processor and dropped the high def…so sheesh.

    I think I’ll pass. I still love my plain old Evo 4G for now.

  • I am kinda glad that I can’t upgrade until July because I am not liking what I have read so far. I am thinking now that I am going to save my upgrade for something else.

    My good old evo is still kicking major butt with all the Roms out there.

  • These overall reviews means nothing in MY WORLD. I already know exactly what I am purchasing and why. Engadget is well known FOR BEING APPLE FANBOYISH so SCREW THEM…Cnet gave it a great review, phonescoop reviewed it well, Bob Kovac at wirefly.com reviewed it well as well as Mr. Walt Mosberg at The Wall Street Journal and we all know he loves Apple as well. I know HTC/SPRINT and appreciate the fact that they did there overall best to provide a innovative product just like they did last year and in my book they did JUST FINE. On June 24th 2011 at 8AM I will be purchasing my EVO 3D and I am doing that MAINLY because I am a current EVO 4G OWNER, and because this device HAS THE BEST SPECS OUT OF ANY DEVICE ON THE MARKET PERIOD. Everyone of those reviews stated that the overall performance of the Evo 3d was lightning fast browsing, video, great 2d picture quality ad well as content which means alot to me. As a current Evo 4g owner I already know what to do woth my battery I have had my device since day one and if I have done that there is no way the Evo 3d can have WORSE BATTERY LIFE. Htc has installed a task manager allowing the user to better manage there battery which is another great feature about this device. Sense 3.0 that lockscreen, htc likes, htc hub, htc.com, htc watch, kobo books, the technology on this device just goes on and on. This is going to be a great member to the evo family of devices. I am waiting for the HEAD TO HEAD EVO 3D VS GALAXY S2….On June 24th I will HAVE MY EVO 3D IN HAND…You never know I might just make my own video to DISPELL ALL THIS EVO BASHING WE WILL NEVER ALLOW ANY EVO BASHING…….

  • TO ALL MY CURRENT EVO 4G OWNERS I ADVISE EVERYONE TO TAKE ENGADGET REVIEW WITH A GRAIN OF SALT THEY ARE AT BEST NOTHING MORE THAN APPLE FANBOYISH CLOWNS…Head over to http://www.androidandme.com, as well as androidcentral.com, mobiletechreview.com,wirefly.com,smartphoneenvy.com,phonearena.com,cnet.com,wsj.com intomobile.com as well as technobuffalo.com watch any and all reviews from these sites they give the very best…Current Evo 4g owners you already know what you have and what you need next you don’t need to read about it just be about it come Friday June 24th just like I will be.

    I don’t care about these reviews, they are not gonna change my mind from purchasing this phone. You have try it aand test it out for yourself and prove the reviews wrong

  • I read that and thought who in their right mind actually uses all their radios at the same time for 14 hours? well, for one, someone who is really clueless on how to really utilize android and the radios on their phone. if I left all my radios on and turned off green power, i doubt i could get 6 hours top on my EVO, so 14 hours on the 3D? thats amazing and dumb, but proves that battery is better, and will only get better with custom roms and kernels and proper management of radios. (i get 16 hours of good battery time with my daily use on my rooted EVO, now, any more than that is useless, because I am usually sleeping) People always want amazing battery life, but be realistic, 12-16 hours of usage time is good, unless you are glued to angry birds all waking hours. just takes a little common sense and knowledge of how your radios and phone interact and which apps are known battery hogs is a good thing to know. I have a stock battery and usually always have a charger nearby if needed, wether I am in my car or at my desk, the two most common places I am using my phone.

    I will be getting the 3D for several reasons, biggest one, the dev community for the EVO4G is moving to the 3D. HTC phones are easier to hack/flash and mod compared to samsung or moto (HTC phones don’t require a computer to flash roms, looking at you samsung and your funky file system). I like to tinker with theming and find sense very easy to work with for my theming needs.

    the bootloader will be unlocked via software(RUU or upgrade zip) or OTA, it may not ship unlocked, but if HTC is smart, it will be unlockable shortly after launch, it would be in their best interest or all of us who petitioned them to unlock will be returning them. I trust HTC will do the right thing.

    just my 2 cents and some change…can’t wait to get my hands on the 3D on the 24th.

    Huh?

    CNet gives the phone an “Excellent” rating with 4 stars and this should discourage me from buying the phone? CNet NEVER gives anything 5 stars. They go so far as to say the phone is one of Sprint’s best – yep – total fail.

    I get so sick of tech snobs that sit in their cubicles declaring anything that doesn’t levitate while projecting a hologram of Princess Leia an utter failure.

    These same reviewers LOVED the iPad II which is an utter failure with the worst screen resolution I have ever seen on a tablet. Even on basic webpages, text is totally pixelated.

    I’ll go by Sprint and judge for myself before picking mine up.

    Just read the Engadget Review. You could just taste the seething hatred from word one. While CNET found the battery life excellent, Engadget found it miserable at best. Hmm, they can’t both be right.

    Maybe they need to stick with the credit card sized iPhone with it’s miniature screen to be happy?

  • Most of those reviews are just fluff over their big goal and coup is to get it first. Never any details with those reviews and first class is always about the details. None of those people would influence me anyhow I am focused on the View Evo 3D maybe later…..but it smooth and fast! The free one does work for me though.

    Reply
  • The reviews might be a little over the top but one point that I see on all the reviews is the bad 3g signal and evdo reliability. I already had problems with the evo indoors when it came to signal coverage. I really hope they fix this. Also I would love to have a better camera and the way that it looks its just the same as the evo4g camera or even worse. I will be giving the evo3d a 15 day run if its as bad as they say in these reviews and no updates have been released to fix these problems I will returning and waiting for a different phone. I really hope a lot of these reviewers are some what wrong but a lot times they hit it right on the nail.

  • Already preordered the phone for $150. Not going to change my mind because Engadget realized it wasn’t an Apple product. They rant about Sense and yet I love Sense and 3.0 makes the GUI that much better…

    Sounds not so good.

    I don’t understand the enamour of 3D stuff (I consider it nonsense; a gimmick). I still just want a decent mobile phone. The ability to look at the web, email, manage a calendar, and play a You Boob video are ancillary, but nice – and they all seem to work fine in the 4G. If I have to put on special glasses to look at my screen or – what a joke – turn off the 3D so I can view it, something’s gone screwy in the priorities.

    HTC has, in the 4G, a design that proved itself worthy and they had quite some time to learn from it and advance things.

    Instead, it seems they went out on some limbs which may prove weaker than anticipated, including a bullet in the foot move when reducing resolution of the camera.

    An upgrade to the 4G would be sufficient if it simply had a slight screen resolution improvement, updated O/S, improved processor, and had a design focus on battery life. If HTC fails to come through on these points, and it appears so, the device in my view will be a waste.

  • Maybe we should put a poll up again to see how the votes for Evo 3D have changed bc i am sure alot more are on the fence, my only question is will the SGSII be a better choice? The photon doesnt do it for me for some reason, and frankly i am not impressed with the Epic 4G (Galaxy) as my fiance has that, so now i am really confused as to what to do –

    Reply
  • Great positive reply Richard. I have pre-ordered the 3D from Sprint (SERO plan) but can’t pick it up until the 25th since I will be out of town till then. Looking for to an in depth review from you on the 24th!!

  • the 3D is not enough of an upgrade from my original EVO for me to burn my upgrade on. if Sprint kept the 1X a year upgrade, i would probably get it. but i’m not going to burn my upgrade for an incremental upgrade device. i’ll wait for the next 4.5″+ display superphone from Sprint. maybe with Ice Cream Sammmmmmich.

  • I hear you. I didn’t mean to imply the SGS2 was a dog, but that we still know NOTHING for certain about the phone on the Sprint network. We have a rumored release date. No reliable rumor on WiMax. Two leaked ads which seem to indicate no keyboard. No idea if it’s got Exynos (probably) or Tegra2.

  • Don’t know who told you that but the 3D shoots 1080p video and camera shots in 2D and 720p in 3D.

  • The 3d gimmick did nothing for my honestly. I love the processor though and that would be my upgrade reason. Still love HTC products (and especially my evo).

    Maybe I will buy it in the future… or wait until a non-gimmicky option becomes available.

    Reply
  • No because I had no intent of getting it in the first place. Its not enough of an upgrade from the Evo. The Evo, especially rooted, is fast enough. So the only thing is this is a bit faster and has a slightly higher resolution. Both of those are valid things but then you dont save any size, dont get any better battery and lose the awesome kickstand (which was a big hit on the original because of the media implications of a 4.3″ screen).

    I would love to see either a same sized Evo2 with the better (2d only) screen with a massive battery or a much thinner Evo. Both would be nice to have the Tegra but with some serious power saving mechanisms. The dual core works well in tablets but I dont know how much power you really need out of a phone right now.

  • love it when people say “the 3d is to gimmicky”. Anything 3d is always going to be a gimmick. Don’t buy anything just for 3d, buy for the specs and then decide what features, such as 3d, you want.

    Over my evo 4g the evo 3d has dual core, 1gb of ram, 4gb internal, bigger battery, sense 3.0. I’m sold… oh your going to have 3D too what a nice bonus.

    For this to be the successor to the Evo 4G, im disappointed. Being that the OG Evo received rave reviews and high marks from all reviews, with the exception of battery life, The Evo 3D should have improved in all facets.

    From the reviews I’ve read, it seems as though HTC put more time into the 3D part of the phone, rather than the build quality, battery life, dual-core power optimization and camera quality. Im hoping the handsets these sites received weren’t final release, and that the units for retail on June 24 will be better.

    I wouldn’t turn down winning an Evo 3D (wink, wink) but I can definitely say the reviews have left me less enthused than before. Can’t wait to go to Best Buy to test one out, but I have a feeling Im gonna be sticking with my kickstand for awhile longer.

  • Awesome evaluation Richard! Let me know when your campaign trail swings through Georgia so I can get a Yarnell 12′ bumper sticker! lol :)

    I’m Evo 3D all the way… I seem to remember similar claims for the O.G. Evo as well in the beginning… It’s a critics JOB to criticize. If it were called the “Evo 2 4G” sans the 3D, it would STILL be a cutting edge, technologically superior device beyond even the ALREADY AMAZING O.G.Evo 4g. And with open bootloaders, it surpasses competitors with sheer potential alone. Imagine what 3d ROM’s await… man, this is just the beginning.

    Reply
  • At this point in time I will do my own testing of the phone. If the 3g signal is an issue and the battery life is worse than or just slightly better than the evo then I will be returning it before 30 days. I’ll just buy myself another evo,root it and just wait for another phone.
    But like someone asked, are these phones part of the stock that is being sold on the 21st and 24th or are these just phones that they got in advance for testing? If thats the case then these reviews mean nothing.

    Myriam Joire who did that review is an avid Android user. Gave high marks for the Sensation and Evo 4G. No bias if you actually know the work the reviewer has done before.

    To be honest, I wouldnt be happy either if the phone didnt blow me away. Especially for it to be the next EVO, because my EVO is a BAMF!

    Reply
  • the successor to the EVO should have included a 4.5″+ display. that would have been the killer feature to drive upgraders. few could resist that screen size bump. the bigger battery and Sense 3.0 and dual core and more RAM is nice too. but forget about that clunky 3D gimmick.

    The only criticism that seems common throughout is the “poor call quality”. This seems odd to me that a phone with tons of ram, a dual core 1.2 ghz cpu and a powerful battery would somehow suck at making phone calls.

    We’ll see.

    Reply
  • Instead of making me second-guess my plans to buy an Evo 3D (I have one pre-ordered), this made me second-guess my devotion to engadget.com.

    After reading the review, and then reading the comments that followed (I have not read other reviews yet), the comments indicate that the other reviewers had no trouble finding the 1080p 2D recording option. The specs listed by Engadget were wrong (Bluetooth 2.1? Not according to HTC). The battery test was absolutely absurd. I don’t have a problem with them turning on all of the radios to see how it works… but to declare it worse than the Evo 4G after it gets 14 hours with the 4G radio on??? That’s insanity. I’ve had my Evo 4G since day 1 and I know if I leave that radio on the battery is going to be gone the next time I take it out of my pocket. I can only imagine what could be done with the 3D if it gets that kind of battery life stock out of the box. The reviewer obviously had zero experience using the Evo 4G so specifically comparing the 2 was a mistake.

    I won’t be factoring their reviews into decisions in the future.

    Reply
  • Do we know if the 3D will be locked or not? I have have not heard a firm answer either way. I have gotten use to benefits of customizing the EVO 4G and it’s going to be tough to give it if the 3D ends up being locked.

    Reply
  • Like others I was ready to purchase, even have one preordered at Best Buy. But the reviews have made me a little disappointed and now reconsidering. I don’t care about the 3D aspect, I’d rather have the 8mp cam, I was really looking forward to having the dual core processor and new display

    I am personally not that interested in the 3D, even though I love the Evo. The funny thing is almost all the criticisms mentioned were said of the Evo, but overall I love the phone. I think you just have to use the phone for awhile and see if it works for you

  • you say that like a phone with a locked bootloader has never been rooted.

  • I specifically remember video recording in 720p in 3D mode and video recording in 1080p in 2D mode.
    I don’t understand the idea of anyone who is “in the know” enough to be on this site considering an upgrade to an EVO 4G rather than an EVO 3D. The 3D’s specs are much more superior to the 4G–and I’m not talking about the 3D feature. The processor and internals alone should be enough to sway anyone to buy a 3D over a 4G. Also, to suggest that the 4G has a better camera than what the 3D will have based solely on MP is not a good comparison factor. I’m sure the 3D will have a better sensor that what the 4G had; hence, I’d rather have a lower megapixel camera with a better sensor than a higher MP camera with a cheaper sensor. The $100 cost difference would not be enough of a factor for me to offset buying the 4G instead of the 3D. The cost does not outweigh the benefits of what the 3D is bringing to the table.
    On a side note, it’s more likely that the 3D will continue to get OS updates in the future (Ice Cream Sandwich)than the 4G with it’s 1st generation snapdragon processor and smaller memory space.
    In conclusion, like I stated in the beginning, I cannot suggest to anyone who’s already got a smartphone and looking for an upgrade or new contract with Sprint to get the EVO 4G over the EVO 3D. The 3D has better specs and way too much potential. Just saying…

  • They changed the specs on sprints site, seems like as far back as June 6th, they definitely did say in the past 1080p for 2d, but now it is just saying 1080p playback and that has been shown to be true by these crappy reviews. Its not that big of a deal to me since in my experience shooting 1080p on a device such as this results in poor quality unless its held absolutely still or on a tripod. There is still a chance that an update later can be added to allow for 1080p shooting, but Im assuming they have to fix whatever bugs led them to removing it in the first place.

  • Hey Steve,
    I came across this site yesterday in another forum. I saw various car docks for the Evo 3D. Check it out.

    FYI, I have nothing to do with the site, just thought I’d show you options so you are not “overshadowed by the loss of this convenience!”

  • I’m a little blah now =( Ive been so excited for months, and now I feel like my second choice the Samsung Galaxy S2 is way better in comparison, but I dunno. Ive always been pretty loyal to HTC & Samsung both. I think Im gonna save my upgrade because I have three Evo’s I can trade in to Sprint so I get the phone free anyway. I think Im still gonna love it as much as I do my Evo regardless of the poor reviews Ive seen lately.

  • Andrew, as Ive been researching more, I am sticking with my original plan of getting the E3D. The reviews just threw me off a bit for a phone that I have been anxiously waiting for the past few months. The other thing that annoys me is the comparison to phones on other networks, I can’t get those phones so why do I care what the sensation can do? Its like when I bought the Hero when the iPhone was out, yea I liked the iPhone because I had an iTouch, but hey the Hero brought me to love the Andriod system and the possibilities it has.

  • My rooted EVO 4G with Mikfroyo is still fast and hot (plays Netflix, too, sorry Ginger-folks), so given these reviews I think I may wait a while to see what happens with future improvements of the EVO 3D. Hard for me to consider a flimsy, “lightweight” plastic-feeling Samsung iphone clone (SGS2 w/idiot button on front and TouchWiz?!) after rocking the EVO 4G. What I really want to buy next is a REAL successor to the EVO 4G (not just an EVO in name only like the EVO SHI(F)T or this new 3D gimmick) – I want sleek style – i.e. no buttons on front, metal body, FREAKIN KICKSTAND, and of course the necessary processor, battery, camera UI and OS improvements. Only HTC can make this phone. I’m still waiting…

That HTC SenseUI is simply the best. You really can’t beat that Sense keyboard either. I can’t wait for the 3D. Hopefully they release before next Friday at Best Buy so I can take it with me out of town on July 4th weekend!!!

  • The poor battery mentioned here and in other reviews is not good but they didn’t say it was worse than the evo4g. Remember that this phone is running better graphics and faster processor so even if the battery lasts the same as the evo its still pretty good with all that the phone can do. Again, reviews are nice but until you try the phone for yourself you can’t say anything. Just give it 30 days or even 15 days. If it doesn’t work for you then return it. No need to talk down a phone without trying it.

    Don’t we all remember what happened a little over a year ago? The HTC Evo was being talked about all over the net, and most of the early reviews were about the abysmal battery life, the gimmicky kickstand, 4G being a novelty with no real world implications.

    I won’t speak for all of the Evo 4G owners, but I for one sit here a year later glad that I didn’t let it phase me. Don’t get me wrong. You will have to form your own opinions about the 3D, but I wouldn’t worry about these early reviews from people who spent one day or less with the phone.

  • I’ll definitely wait and let the first wavers help guide my decision with their experiences once they have phone in hand.

    I’m not really that impressed with the 3D aspects I was more interested in better memory and full gingerbread (as opposed to the upgraded version).

    I’m happy with my regular Evo and it will certainly tide me over while I await feedback.

  • Regarding photo, video, and 3D capabilities,
    I am to say the least annoyed with people calling 3D a gimmick. You can record 3D photos and videos. You will be able to play them to any 3D monitor or TV set. 10 years from now, it will be hard to find any without 3D capabilities. Technology didn’t come to the level to produce native 3D monitors with multi viewing experience. However, during the next decade, it will. At this point, Evo3D and that LG 3D set recording and screen are the best commercially available multifunctional devices. Yes, next year, there will be something better, but right now, there is not. By the time you can purchase other devices you are talking about, you will hear about newer ones in production pipeline. You can wait forever for newer one, which will be outdated by the time it is released on any network. The other story is if HTC engineers and programmers didn’t optimize video and sound recording. I can always return the phone if it skips the frames or video has too many artifacts. However, according to vast HTC Sensation 1080p video samples on youtube, photo and video recording on Evo should be great as well + 720p 3D! The only thing I would have liked is bigger screen.

    Reply
  • Personally I’m cool with 720, as long as it works. I’ve had 3 EVOs and everyone of them skips during some of the videos. They look fine when you are shooting them, but skip when you review them. Anyone know why that is, or how to stop it?

  • I’m getting Evo 3D…but only to tide me over til the SGS2 hits Sprint. That thing is sweet….a REAL multimedia device. I like its build…a lot.

  • From my research and understanding, the 3D will only be an option for snapping pictures or recording in 3D. If you are using an app that uses the 3D feature, then you will be boxed in to using 3D. There is no option to turn 3D ‘viewing’ on or off. If you are watching a 3D movie/tv show/video game, then you will only be able to view it in 3D. That is what I have gathered from all reviews and readings on the HTC EVO 3D. It would be nice if there were some sort of software option to turn on or off the 3D feature. We’ll see. It’s not like it wouldn’t be possible via a software update eventually.

    Reply
  • I’ll wait until real-world reviews start popping out here before making a final decision, but these reviews have me very concerned about the battery life. My current EVO 4G has very poor battery (even following all the battery-saving tips on this site!) I had to get the Seidio super-bulky extended battery to not have to worry about charging the phone halfway through the day. If the EVO 3D is the same or only marginally better, it’s not worth the upgrade for me.

  • But I have to be rooted, right? I haven’t been willing to do that. Worried about screwing that up.

  • Actually, Engadget said it was worse: “But our biggest gripe with the EVO 3D is its terrible battery life, which is even worse than what we observed on the already lackluster EVO 4G”

    Of course the actual battery life they mention in the article (14 hours with 4G enabled the entire time) is far better than what the Evo 4G can do stock.

    This really just underscores my opinion that Engadget reviews are no longer worth reading. The other reviews all mentioned a modest improvement over the Evo 4G.

    My main concerns are the 3g and 4g reception issues that most of the reviews mention, and the call quality issues. Those are killer.

    Im sure the battery issue is not as bad as some of the reviews mention. At least I hope not!

    I’m now going to wait and see… maybe the SGSII or the next Nexus w/ ice cream sandwich.

    The fact that Samsung gave demo phones to the Cyanogen team is a good sign.

    I would consider the Photon, but it looks like Motorola has no intention of unlocking their devices. And I like to tinker with my phones..

  • Actually, in that case, it seems like the reviewer was being too much of an Android snob. It felt like there was a point taken off for having Sense (and it was the only review of those linked above that harshly criticized it.)

    Also a bit annoying were the dinging of the phone for Sprint’s WiMax vs LTE & HSPA+. The general consumer won’t be comparing phones across networks.

    Read through all of them and have to agree that they were somewhat conflicting. However, the only thing that seems to have a general consensus are the remarks on call quality. What frustrates me is that they gave no comparison with any other phone — and especially the not 4G. I would hate to upgrade and end up with lesser call quality.

  • In the battery stats photos above…how in the world is the display eating up 74% of the battery?!? I don’t think I ever got that kind of Display usage with the 4G. Was it left at max brightness and no auto screen-off or something?

  • Is that white gown Princess Leia hologram, or the much hotter bronze bikini version? Personally, I’m going with the latter.

  • If it weren’t for the consistent bagging on the poor voice/call quality I would not be worried. Dual-core this, Sense 3.0 that, 3D the other, whatever, but it is still a PHONE and needs to function well as such. My EVO 4G works wonderfully as a phone and speakerphone and there is absolutely nothing that I dislike about it. I only wanted to upgrade to get, essentially, the same phone I have with newer software and a faster CPU. But if that newer, faster phone has worse call quality then all bets are off for me.

    I’m now beginning to think I might sit on my EVO 3D preorder and take a wait-and-see approach, rather than deal with a possible buy-and-return-for-refund later.

  • Even with a 5mp camera the evo3d probably takes about the same quality pics or even better as the current evo. Megapixels dont matter. Just look that the camera on the iphone or the epic4g. They both have better quality pictures than the evo. So megapixels alone should not be a reason not to get the phone. World phone or low battery life are good reasons not to get a phone. Just try it out for 15 to 20 days and see how it does. No reason to bash a phone without really trying it out.
    That said, I’m giving evo3d 15 days before going back to evo again and waiting for a better phone.

  • Idk what that other guy is talking about….but yes the evo 3d will be locked at launch. People who have the phone have said and uploaded pictures showing thee phone with s-on and locked. Some developers do have the engineer bootloader though, so hopefully we will have root by launch, and if not it should be ready soon after.

    Thanks Andrew, but all but one of the listed docks are just generic holders. That is why I specified that I was using the HTC Car Dock. The convenience of dock that is actually made for a specific model is far greater than something that “fits-pretty-close”.

    Like I said, I know this seems like a small thing, but the fact is the other improvements the 3D brings over the 4G are also small in day-to-day use.

    The one model dock that HTCpedia lists as a 3D specific model is not in stock and the product picture does not actually show a 3D docked. I’m sure they will eventually have a version for the 3D but it will probably be a few months off. It took HTC about 5 months to get their EVO 4G car dock to market, after the phone’s release.

Cnet is where I go to check reviews and their review confirmed everything that made me follow this phone since it was first announced. If I hear gimmick one more time I’m going to loose it. I’ve been working in the industry long enough to remember when the first camera phone was called a gimmick.

  • Have to say that the 3D may be a jump in specs, but I’m not sure the performance boost over the 4G is enough to justify buying one out of contract.

    The EVO is the most complete Smartphone I’ve ever used. The camera is excellent, even with 2.1 the device never had serious lag issues, the screen is gorgeous, it has ample memory with Apps2SD, and overall, it’s amazing. The only complaint is battery life – and from the early takes on the 3D, it isn’t any better.

    The 3D has a ton of fun stuff for it – but for those of us that use our phones as phones, quick capture tools and messaging machines, battery life is more important than a 3D camera, dual-core processor or 3D gaming. Hopefully, they will launch the Shift 3D, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus S 4G-3D II and of course the HTC EVO IIs 4G-3D.

    Reply
  • It’s only using 74% of the battery used… So if the battery is at 90% only 7.5% of the battery was used by the screen. Which is about right for someone having the device on and playing with it for testing.

    Numbers like this are actually pretty common with the 2.3 devices on the market now. My 4G has gone from 10% Display / 50% Android System to 50% Display / 10% Android System… No major difference in the actual battery life – I’m a semi-heavy user and can get 12-14 hour day without a charge with mostly text and email. If I jump online with the stock browser or Facebook alot, the battery dies much faster.

  • i consider 5MP to be a potential upgrade to the EVO 4G camera. 8MP on that tiny sensor is counter-productive. when the pixels are too small, they don’t do a very good job. this worsens the signal to noise ratio and image quality goes down.

    My hyped died shortly after announcement. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Evo 4G. By far the best phone i’ve ever had. Hell, the best gadget i’ve ever had. There’s not a day I go without doing something on my Evo other than calls and text. However, when the Evo 3D was announced, I was super hyped. Then after a week or so, that hype began to drown out, unlike that of the hype i experienced from the announcement of the Evo 4G. 3D is cool, but isn’t appealing enough to make me want the phone. And why buy a 3D capable phone, if you’re honestly not going to use for anything other than “wow-ing” your friends and showing it off. On a day-to-day basis i don’t see myself doing anything “3D” on the phone other than to wow myself. And after personally toying with the phone, i work at Sprint, i’m not as wowed as i was when it was announced. It may seem like i’m strictly against the phone itself, but i actually love it. May sound a bit oxymoronic, but hear me out. The build quality is great. In some cases i love it more than the Evo itself. This may be due to me having one, and working on them almost everyday all day, but hey, just a personal thing. The rubberized back feels great in the hand. And not having a single sheet of glass on the front kinda livens it up a bit. The red accents, like that of its cousin, are very sexy on this phone. And the camera button…well, there isn’t much to be said short of amazing. Similar to the feeling when you first played with the kickstand on the Evo. I could find myself playing with the camera button a lot. As for the software, i’m a huge fan of HTC Sense. Some people don’t care for it, but I happen to love its features. And Sense 3.0 delivers, in a great package. The subtle “3D effects” throughout the interface make you fall in love with it all over again. The dual-core processor blazes through animations and smoothly delivers a great experience overall. The only gripe I have about Sense in general is the bottom “dock” if you wanna call it that. I hate not being able to customize the dock how i want. But thats what rooting and home replacements are for right? Overall the Evo 3D is a great phone. But if you’re buying it solely because of the “cool” 3D effects, you’d better off getting another phone. Yes there is the option to turn off 3D on the camera side. But why buy a 3D phone if you don’t intend on using the 3D. The phone alone is great, the 3D i see is a just a perk. Instead of a kickstand, we get 3D. Personally, i prefer the kickstand.

Oddly, the application icons on my 3D aren’t as crisp as on my 4G. I am liking the Sense 3.0 interface though.

    I agree with you, the only problem I have with HTC’s decision to go with 3D is going with 5 MP camera’s that seem to be lame in comparison to the Evo 4G. I could care less about the 3D part of the phone, but when it is their main option for advertising, it shows that not much thought went into what people would think that were used to their great cameras already in the EVO. I use that camera daily and I would miss it. I was going to get it, but until I see the pics, I will have to hold on.

It’s not like we’re leaving your carrier to go to a different carrier. I just want a new phone without paying the big retail price on it.

    You do not have to plug in the phone. Many TVs have built in functionality to play files (like MKV) from a hard drive or thumb drive. Many (most) BluRay players can do the same. The file is a file geberated by the EVO 3d is one commonly played by those devices stand alone. I think it is an mdo file, but I could be mistaken on the name. But I know it plays on many major brand 3DTVs.

    My parents are in Ohio. Being able to send them a home video that they can watch on their 3D TV is not a gimmick for me. I’m not sure why people keep saying this. I guess they are behind the curve on the future of the way we view media. YouTube is already starting to build a sizeable collection of 3D content for folks like me who have (and enjoy) 3D technology in our home entertainment system.
    You will also be able to upload your 3D content to YouTube to share with your friends who have 3D TV or NVIDIA 3D graphics cards on their computers. I’m not sure why you are looking at this high end smartphone market if all you do is use the basic functions of your phone.
    For me ANY other 3D camera on the market costs more than the EVO 3D, so having one built into the phone AND getting the fastest specs available on the market today is a no brainer.
    For you it obviously doesn’t fit. i get that. But I’m pretty sure you could be OK with a blackberry based on your useage, so a phone that is more powerful than some people’s computers is probably not for you.
