Re: Initial Thoughts on Evo 3D - Post Them Here!
Had mine for about a week, coming from a Blackberry Bold on BES to EVO 3D using Good Enterprise.
My EVO 3D blows away the Blackberry in just about every way except sound quality and battery life. But it's still perfectly usable for me and does so much more that I don't miss the Bold at all. Well, OK, I admit sometimes I miss how easy the BB was to use one-handed. Maybe that will improve as I get used to it. And maybe some things that should be simple to do aren't (like enabling swype - why is that not under keyboard settings or in the swype tutorial - or applications with no "close" option). Also being able to override default app security settings on the BB was nice - I'm sure there's an app for that with Android but haven't gotten around to it yet.
Bought for the performance and because it was on sale, 3D did not factor in the decision. But now that I have used 3D, it will be a factor from now on (although not one of the main factors). Better than an iPhone for my priorities as well, no question about it.
After using Blackberrys for two years was concerned about battery life. Wife bought the purple version. Her battery lasts almost 3 days with light use. Mine lasts the whole day with moderate use. Not great, but good enough. Overall pretty happy so far.
