HTC EVO 3D records HD video at 720p, not 1080p
Ever since the HTC EVO 3D was announced at CTIA back in March, it was said to be capable of shooting HD video at up to 720p in 3D and 1080p in 2D. Great!
But then all those EVO 3D reviews popped up last week, each one alleging that 720p was the highest setting. Since it's highly unlikely that all the reviewers were blind or clueless, would-be customers looking forward to this Friday's release of the newest EVO smartphone were understandably confused. Does the device record video at 1080p or not?
In a word, no. No, it does not.
Sprint quickly sent out statements and changed its spec sheet to correct what suddenly turned out to be an error. Gone is the distinction between 2D and 3D video capture quality; the EVO 3D's camera now simply records at up to 720p and supports playback at up to 1080p in both dimensions.
Is the loss of 1080p 2D video capture a deal breaker for anyone?
