    Default If You Knew Then What You Know Now,Would You Still Buy The EVO3D?

    I was just wondering how many people here love their EVO3D? Would you still buy the phone if you had it to do over again? I personally love my EVO3D and don't want any other device. Well maybe I would have purchased another WebOS phone if Sprint had gotten one, but I wouldn't have purchased any other Android phone. The EVO3D has so many cool features that other Android phones don't have, the 3D being the best feature.

    So how many people here would purchase a different phone, if you could go back in time and stop yourself from purchasing the EVO3D, and how many would stick with the EVO3D?

    Since i only paid about $30 for an upgrade to the 3D I'd still get it. Now if the G-nex came out on sprint, that might be a different story. Before upgrading to this i really contemplated making a frankenstein pre2 but ultimately decided to give android a try.

    Yeah I also thought about making a Franken Pre 2, but decided that it wouldn't be worth it; so I went with the EVO3D instead. The only thing that I regret with buying the EVO3D, was that I had to renew my contact and ending up getting a $350 early termination fee put in place. I wish I would have just purchased the phone off of Ebay, because $350 is a whole lot of money for an ETF. But all the carriers are now placing that type of fee on smart-devices. Verizon was he first, but now its common place. So I would re-buy the EVO3D in a heartbeat, but I wouldn't have purchased it directly from Sprint.
    If I really felt like leaving Sprint though, which I don't want to leave Sprint. But if I did end up feeling like that, I would either tell Sprint that I was moving and find a location with no Sprint service, or I would set my phone to roam-only and roam onto Verizon's network until Sprint contacted me, telling me that I was roaming too much and that they would need to turn my service off; which would release me from my contract. So the ETF fee isn't the end of the world, but I would rather not be under it.

    I like my phone but if I new the date the galaxy s2 came out I might have waited. Mainly for the popularity of it ie: roms, cases, etc.

    Without a doubt.

    In the last few months, I also got the Thrill 4G, and the Galaxy S II and my wife got the Photon.

    I love the 3D, and the Thrill 4G is really slow, still on Froyo, and the S II took forever. I needed a new phone and I still love it.

    yep, i would maybe consider the design... but would probably end up going 3D just because i think it looks better. i haven't touched 3D content since day one.

    I would not have bought it. I just couldn't wait for a perpetual sg2 rumored date while my Pre couldn't hold out much longer.

    Is it a bad phone? No. I just would rather trade 3D for a lighter phone. And a little peeved at HTC. And underestimated how long an asop ROM would be, heh.

    And I wouldn't necessarily go sg2 either, it's a big phone. The nexus fits perfectly for me, but single core and half a gig of ram scared me off for a two year run. I still kinda want it, ha.

    After having an Android device for about 8 months now I dont know where I woild stand. I came from WebOS and loved the platform. I mean as it stands I would have to move on. I dont wanna pay $650+ for a Pre3. I got my Evo 3D for $50 the month it came out. Calling Sprint seemed to have worked!

    My likes for Android:

    Great customized UI options. (Any Launcher or ROMs are nice)
    Being able to setup new default apps. (SMS, Email, Keyboards and so on.)
    Having access to 48648646864868 apps on the app market.
    Amazon app store and others! (Without having to hack your device)
    ROM support for the Evo 3D is great!
    The way it feels in the hand and build quality seems pretty solid!

    What I dont like...

    It needs a 1Gig of RAM to run... (They need to optimize the software a lot better.)
    Game support is sorta weak. (Does not run as well as some other phones it seems)
    Carrousel affect with Sense. (Its way to annoying but thank god for rooting.)
    Captive buttons. (I'd rather have gestures!)
    Needs better mutli-tasking. Switching between apps is just a pain in the @ss at the moment. But I can deal with it for now.

    So I mean for what its worth I have enjoyed my HTC device. Would I buy it again? If it was an Android phone, sure why not! I like HTC and they have my support. They have done a pretty good job IMO. Some annoying things on the way but you will have that with any device I think. It's just all matter of opinion of what you wanna deal with is really what you need to ask your self!

    Tough call. I like my EVO3D, but it's been bogging down and lagging a little bit lately. I'll probably root and flash a custom ROM over the holiday week -- maybe CleanROM. What makes it even tougher is that my wife and daughter both recently upgraded to the E4GT, and it is one beautiful phone with a great camera and call/speaker quality.

    I think ICS is ultimately going to be the driver for whether I stay with the 3D or go to the E4GT (or wait for an ICS flagship phone to drop for Sprint). The good thing with Android is that there are multiple good choices out there.

    Please let me know how your Root goes. I would like to know if Rooting is worth doing to an EVO3D or not.

    I would have gotten a Nexus S. I never liked sense and have come to hate the slow camera.
    Whole phone is lagging more these days too.

    (though it was run over by a truck, doubt the nexus could take that as well)

    that's a game that I still don't have. maybe I'll try it soon.

    I will say that I love my phone. I don't think that a new phone at this time is worth it for me. I also don't have any issues at all. running full stock and loving it.

    I don't understand such threads.
    almost everyone of you have read or seen a video of this phone in action before even going to the store to buy it. then tested it out once at the store...at least that is what I did.
    so when I read that someone doesn't like a feature or something with the phone ( something silly like a widget or what ever), I wonder, didn't they check out the phone first? why buy something that they don't like?
    if you don't like that sence uses 1gig of memory, why did you buy the phone? with all the info on the interwebz, how was this somehow a suprise to you? does it even hurt that it does? because my games run great on my stock phone.

    I'd do it again. But 3D is most definitely a gimmick. Would rather have had Beats Audio and NFC

    If I knew what I know now - I would have gotten this phone the day it came out. (by any means necessary). I'm sticking with HTC sense. Motorola and Samsung kick rocks.

    Phones are hot right now. No doubt I love trying out new phones.... But for me the 3vo was the best phone available, and a more than capable device

    Some people were coming from a POS webos device and this was the best option at the time. That doesn't mean it is the best option now, hence the OP's question.
    webOS is dead. Long live Android.

    I don't regret the phone, I regret the Sprint service though

    Honestly I wouldn't... I kinda felt like I wasted my upgrade on it after the fact. I'll admit I got caught up in the 3D hype and I probably used it maybe once after the first week that I had it. Luckily I was able to push it off on someone else since I was well past the 30 day return date.

    At this point.. yes.

    The only other phone on Sprint I would even consider would be the Nexus S.. and I already bought to replace my 3D but am going to sell it. The Epic Touch 4G is too damn wide for me with too low a resolution for the size to deal with. And I refuse to buy a Motorola due to their awful software, interface, bootloader, and support.

    So, in June 2011 when I had the opportunity to finally leave AT&T, I made the 3D choice and as of now I still think it's the best phone on Sprint until the next ones come out

    I would of held out for the iPhone 4S.

    My Evo 3D battery dies very fast, and other current annoyances are app crashes, app updates, and a buggy lock screen. Also lamely showing people the 3D is getting old, going to that same youtube kid with the oreo popping out. I loved it at first, but now it already seems a little dated compared to current offerings.

    I am hoping though that ice cream sandwich comes quick and makes me like it again.
