soo how "3D" is it?
i'm yet to see a "non-glasses" 3D device in person, i've been wondering how 3D it actually looks.. is it comparable to RealD? better/worse?
i'm seeing a lot of info on the Evo3D being 3D, but haven't seen too many comments on the quality and level of 3D being seen as a user.
any info's great!!
and on another note, i cannot wait for this phone to dropPhone: HTC EVO 3D • 0002

Yeah, that's probably your best bet....check out the 3ds. But I am guessing it's going to look a lot like a Stereogram. Those are kind of hard to master and see since you need to stare at the picture while relaxing your eyes, and any lapse of concentration will make you lose the 3d view again. Steregrams usually don't pop out though but instead add depth, and I am guessing that's what the Evo 3d will look like?
Can't wait to find out!

3DS is like that it adds depth it doesn't like pop out of the screen but it's pretty damn impressive non the less, i would assume Evo3D is comparable to that screen but i dont see 3D gaming working well on it cuz your fingers touching screen would throw the 3D off i would assume it does take a second for your eyes to adjust to 3DS screen, touch works there only cuz its only screen below it thats used for touch

The specs are what have me wanting this phone, but it kinda sucks that the camera got downgraded to 5 MP. SO now its between this and the Samsung Galaxy S II for me.
The 4 GB internal storage and the 1 GB of RAM is pretty sweet too.

The technology utilized DOES allow for some crazy pop out of the screen 3D, it's just that nobody has used it like that. It's easier to make things recess into the screen than to pop-out so you'll be seeing a lot more of that.
When you trick your brain into seeing depth when there isn't any it makes your head and eyes hurt...that's how any kind of 3D is.
What I'm really disappointed in is the fact that the only 3D shown so far is the camera. While it does have the updated Sense that some other phones have, there is no streaming 3D films, no 3D games or applications in the market...none of the user interface, homescreen, menus, or stock apps are in 3d either. How do you have a phone called EVO 3D with SO little 3D implemented?
The cool thing about the 3DS is that practically everything is in 3D...even boring system settings menus feature some sort of 3D effect. And it doesn't force the 3D onto you...at any time you can tune down or completely turn off the 3D.
I'm really turned off by the lack of 3D functionality, the BIG ugly camera button, and how horrendous the phone looks from the back. I hope the updated Sense UI comes to my standard EVO though...

The back of the phone looks horrendous? Uh...it's a red ring just like on the Evo 4G, but this time around it has to run around 2 cameras AND the flash. It's not like they tried to make it gawdy, the hardware needs to be there to make the 3d work! How else would you have designed it? I think it looks good, and they sort of learned from their mistake with the Evo 4g where the lens of the camera was the highest point of the phone and was prone to scratching when setting the phone down. The red ring is raised just enough to help avoid this very issue. What's wrong with a big camera button? Too many phones don't have one, and having one really aids in holding the phone more still to take better pictures. I think it's great they made it stand out, it's something people will notice, especially the ones that missed camera buttons on their phones. The Droid X has a camera button, but it looks just like any other button on the phone until people realize what it is, the Evo 3d won't have that problem.
As far as having 3d in every menu....uhm...the phone needs to be sleek and fairly thin, and you package a whole lot of hardware into that little body, you don't have the luxury of having all the extra space that the Nintendo 3DS has for a huge battery. Also, the phone needs to be a phone and do internet, all of which suck extra battery juice, so of course they won't use up battery sucking power on a full time 3d UI. Do you really need to see your settings in 3d? Besides, having 3d in the UI full time would just add to the gimick factor if you ask me. This is a phone that can take 3d pictures, 3d videos, can handle 3d games, and will be able to stream 3d videos, isn't that enough 3d functionality for you?
Lastly, 3d should be consumed in small portions at a time, especially with a relatively small screen like what the Evo 3d will have, having it on all the time will cause problems with certain people sensitive to it which reduces the potential pool of buyers ready to plunk down the money for this thing. In reality, if the UI was in 3d, most people would probably find that fun for about a day or two, or maybe even a week, but after that, when they experience the total lack of battery life, will just turn it off permanently anyhow, so why waste resources on it?
I think HTC is doing all the right things here.

I agree that having 3d on full time would be tiresome. We all know that there will be a better everything down the line but the Evo 3d is now. I'm Using the Hero (rooted of course) still and have a upgrade coming up about the same time as the evo comes out. So for me it's the same as coming from a g1 to a g2 or mytouch4g.
I love the camera button. I take a lot of pics with my phone and hate unlocking, finding the camera icon and waiting for the app to start. It'll be great to just get to it.
Bottom line it's all relative to the user. Coming from the Hero, I would more than double processor power, ram, memory, cameras and potential. I'm ready for this phone. If you're not you have your reasons and I'm sure your phone of choice is around the corner.

Game development takes a while, we all know that. You apparently missed the videos from CTIA where they did show off a trailer of Splinter Cell, where they did announce YouTube 3d, and where they did say the Blockbuster app allows you to buy/rent movies, even in 3d, to watch on your phone. Just because you didn't see it or hear about it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
I would like to know what you called me because it got starred out, but then again, you're a newbie around here and you don't know that cussing and name calling doesn't fly around here.
Lastly, what are you doing in the Evo 3D forum if you have no plans of buying it? Do you just feel like bashing the people that are excited about it?
By the way....welcome to the forum!

Okay so I tried out the Nintendo 3DS and I wasn't impressed at all. I wear glasses and have one eye that's way worse then the other for me to see in 3D and not have a blurry line in the middle I had to hold it about 8inches from my face. With 3d glasses I never had that problem the only problem I had was after Avatar in 3d all the colors outside didn't look as vivid . So this for me personally was a game changer I'm not preordering this phone & Im looking harder in a Nexus S. When it comes out if it looks as bad for MEas the 3DS did I'm totally going the Nexus route. Not trying to start a flame war just trying to tell anyone with a vision problem to check it out before you buy it. Besides 3d by December I'm sure there will be other dual core 756mb+ phones to choose from...Forgot to backup stock on your Optimus S? Use Mine!

I see the 3d part of the Evo 3d as just extra gravy to the delicious meal that is the technical specs of this phone. If 3d gave me a headache or wouldn't work a damn, I wouldn't care. I will have what I want, my current phone on some serious steroids!

I played with a 3ds today, the 3d effect was as expected, it adds depth and doesn't really pop out. You have to look at the screen dead on and after a second or two you see the full effect. I also played that flying game where you have to fly through a bunch of rings. Your plane was the closes object to you, everything else seemed further away. This is really not how I want to play a game, it seems like you can't move your head or the 3d effect will go away. After about 2 minutes of playing I stopped, and it didn't take long for my eyes to feel rather uncomfortable, and they still are now, hours later.
I will probably only use the 3d for some short videos and taking pictures, like I said in another post, to me it's all just extra gravy, I am buying the phone for the speed, not the 3d.
