    So far I love mine. My only annoyance was that Netflix wasn't available, which someone has already found away around. This is the first android phone I've owned and it has yet to disappoint, although coming from a phone with Windows Mobile 6 just about anything is better. Can't wait to start doing a little development for it. I think my first project is going to be a widget to turn off skype and google talk notifications so I can easily turn them off when I sit down at my computer.

    Got 2 3d's, coming from tmo MT3g's. Phone seems very nice so far. Call quality has seemed ok on the 1 or two calls I have made. Build quality of phone seems very nice. I do think the cameras are in a bad spot for potential scratches. FM radio works very nicely, not that that is a big deal. Sprint tv seems to be terrible quality video. Right now I am at 6h:11m on battery: display has been on for 2h:14m at default brightness, 30minutes of Internet, phone idle for 3h:56m, 7minutes of sprint tv, Battery shows 5 bars.
    I have zero apps on it atm because yesterday I got the sleep of death )sod) at least 6 times where I had to pop the battery out in order to wake it back up. So I have done a factory reset 3 times, and done all teh updates except the htc ones. So far today no SOD.

    2nd phone had one partial sleep of death where the buttons lit up but the screen would not wake.
    That camera issue bugs me too, but someone posted a response from HTC and in short, they said in testing and trying to scratch it, it's nearly indestructible. I still want to protect it. I wonder if it may also be Gorilla glass, but HTC won't say.

    I'm loving it so far. Second day. At first was a little disappointed as I really couldn't see a difference from my 4g. But a little playing around and I'm really digging it. Also that endgadget review almost turned me off complete on this phone. Though I could smell a lot of bias in that review. Are there any reviews worth reading? I do not mind calling faults to any device so long as it doesn't bleed tinges of fanboyism in it. I never saw them review the iphone like that.

    The engadget review almost had go for the Nexsus S. The best review I have seen so far from a month ago was the Wirefly.com review I thought it was dead on based my experience with EVO 3D so far

    Hi there, new HTC Evo 3d owner here. Since my local store has gotten these babies in stock, i had to snag one.

    I am kind of a nut when it comes to phones, and all my phones that ive had are all day 1 purchases.....hahahaha its like my birthday everytime a new phone comes out.

    Anyhow, im coming the HTC thunderbolt (which is still active) and i must say the evo is really snappy!!! (duh cause of the 1gb ram and dual core processor). I havent had a lag on this phone yet!!!

    The screen is really vibrant but different in scaling as the evo is 16x9 aspect ratio. And texts seems to be nicer on the evo.

    3d camera i thought was just a gimmick, but its really cool!!! but not as practical as i would think it would be. But 3d youtube videos are pretty sick too!!! Only thing is, you have to hold the phone at a certain angle to get the best pic quality......

    GPS locks in instantly (tbolt is still suffering from gps lock issue!)

    Screen is responsive, and sense 3.0 is really cool!!! love the quick launch from the lock screen feature.

    Sprint 4g is hit or miss in my area though (OC California). I stop at the next stop light from my house and the 4g scanning notification would pop up already......and it would do that since the coverage here isnt so great.

    Battery life is really good, considering i have 4g on all the time (usually in search mode ahahaha) and gps is on all the time as well. 40% 13 hours since unplugged, 2.5 hrs screen time.


    All in all, the phone is great, even if youre skeptical of the 3d gimmick. If youre looking to get a killer phone for sprint, this is one of them. But in my case, i cant give up my unlimited LTE plan yet from verizon.

    Now that my apparent battery issue is gone I'll give my thoughts.

    I love this phone. I guess my battery took a bit of breaking in but now that it's working fine the battery life is great. The phone is quick and snappy, the camera in 2D is slightly above average, the 3D is solid. Sense 3.0 rocks. My GPS is dead on accurate, the 3G strength is decent, 4G is damn fast.

    I had an original Motor Droid back in the day then had to go to a regular no frills phone(long story) but I'm back in the smartphone game and this phone is awesome, I'd make love to it if I could(OK, not really but I do like the phone a lot lol)

    I am very happy, just went to case mate website and my favorite case i had with my evo is now available for the 3d. Just ordered it. The barely there case. Weather the camera lens needs protection or not, who knows. This case offer great protection for the lens. The best part is when I put this on my old evo my family could not tell I had put it on. I loved the way the red body glove case looks but it has already developed little cracks on either side from putting it in holster on my bicycle. That never happened with my barely there case on my old evo. If your looking for minimal case protection without adding bulk, check it out. They also have a thicker one that is 2 layers,, one silicone, other hard shell. That one is a bit more bulky but not to bad.

    The phone is awesome, but I put a ZAGG screen protector on it and it really killed the phones display & the 3D part. So I took it off.
    Hey why the ZAGG screen protector.....I thought this thing was built with Gorilla Glass.

    It's been said several times in this thread,, gorilla glass is stratch resistant, not stratch proof. Also sprint reps trained stores selling this device that a stratch on the screen renders that one spot useless as far as 3D is concerned. Some dismiss that as a ploy to see shields. I don't, makes sense to me. It's a choice like anything else. I want to feel comfortable so i use a zagg. On my evo 4g i had a zagg on for 8 months. I took it off and with in an hour had a tiny scratch on it. I am almost to careful with my devices so i was shocked. There are people here who disagree with everything I says and that's fine, everyone is different. To each his own.

    Hey all,

    Brand new to Android after using an iPhone for the past 3 years. I purchased the EVO 3D on Saturday and after several days of use, I must say, this phone is amazing. It kicks the ever living sh*t out of the iPhone. The only disappointing thing was there no Netflix....

    but after doing some searching on the web I solved that problem with ease.

    I am a converted fan of Android.

    Just wanted to say Hi and give this phone the praise it deserves.

    Welcome to Android! Glad you like your EVO 3D I love mine. It's an amazing phone. Glad you found Netflix. My dad and brother and several coworkers have the iphone and they think it's the best. I prefer Android but I think they both have pretty much the same apps. I just think Android is better we can change our battery our browser has flash we can stick in a memory card. I'll stick with Android!

    I have had the EVO 3D for about a week and a half now. Switched from a BB. This is a fast and fun phone. I am still having some trouble with the small keyboard, but the SWYPE is helping me. Coming from a BB, it is hard to get used to no qwerty buttons to thumb type one handed. The camera works well and I like the dedicated camera button. I really have not done too much with the 3D camera function. Took a few pics here and there..kind of a gimmic. I'm sure someone who is more into pictures and video would really dig it. An app killer is a must to download first. I have been getting great battery life now. I purchased an Otter Box Defender to protect my investment. It's like a black box for commercial airlines! Works, not sexy thou.

    If you didn't calibrate your keyboard try this, it helps a lot.

    I LOVE this phone...it's literaly everything I could ever want in a phone LOL...it's really fast, no lag whatsoever, and HTC's widgets are great. I'm coming from AT&T's Galaxy S Captivate. I thought that phone was amazing and could do anything any other phone could do...after a year this is the perfect upgrade. Everything that I was slightly disappointed with about the Captivate, the 3VO made amazing. And the best part? I hardly use the 3D. It's new and I assume it will be better for picture taking in the future, but that's NOT the best part about this phone...it's the 1.2 ghz dual core processor, Sense 3.0, Gingerbread, and the 4.3 inch qhd display all working together to give you the best phone you've ever held in your hand...I LOVE IT!
