    My wife and i both have this phone and its amazing. Camera quality is average, 3d pics are great and signal has been good. Call quality is great. Speaker phone needs to be louder sometimes. My buddy also traded in his Samsung moment. He lived in a fringe area in appt complex. I literally could hardly under stand a single word he said on his moment due to signal loss. No on EVO 3d he can go everywhere in his house and sounds great. To him its a miracle as he is a sales guy for me and on the phone all the time.

    5 bars, in 3G area, every call is choppy, will be stopping by Sprint on Monday to ask if I'm the only one that got launch phones with this issue.

    Anyone else experiencing this since getting their phone? I'm in a 5 bar area with 3G and all my calls are choppy, scratchy and garbled. Other Sprint phones around me have no issues, my old phone never had issues like this. Some what frustrating after spending 200 dollars on a phone not really being able to understand anyone.


    Besides all that...THIS PHONE ROCKS!!

    Wish I could take my vote back! I said "same" but it's actually a little worse. Inside my house the coverage has always been bad but Mogul/TP/TP2 would "hold" a call a little longer and let me move around until I got coverage back during a call. E3D seems to just drop off quicker and I have to re-call.

    "roaming only" would be nice to have back too for the important business calls that are made!

    A little worse than the EVO 4G but not a deal breaker.

    Seems to have way better 4g connection especially as far as holding signal and switching towers.

    I've just noticed today that call quality seems bad on the other end of who I'm talkin to. I can hear them loud and clear, but I sound like I'm under water.... Anybody having this issue but me?

    I'm considering this phone, but am concerned specifically about reception for calls especially, as well as the 3G, 4G data.

    I live out in the country, about evenly between 2 cell towers.

    My BB Curve would drop calls fairly frequently at home, just didn't get stellar reception. My Evo4G has been a much better improvement over the Berry for reception & call quality. Places I used to drop calls I would actually keep them (versus the BB). Also much better 3G reception. 4G is about a half mile away (hard to believe since I live in the country).

    I'm worried the 3D will revert me back to dropping a lot of calls. What's the consensus 3D versus the Evo4G?

    From what I have experienced, the evo 3d is the same as my 4g was when it came to reception and clarity. I feel their antennas are sensitive and hold the calls better than any phone I had before. I cannot tell a difference.

    I cannot tell a difference from my 4G. Maybe the bars show a tad lower, but those bars really mean squat. Gotta look at the DBM values to get an accurate reading.
    Otherwise though I would say its atleast the same as the 4G from what I can see

    My E3D has noticeably poorer reception than my E4G. My desk at work would hold onto one bar before and now I roam on and off all day. Call quality is great when reception is good and 4G is much faster.

    Thanks everyone. I'm heading to Sams Club today to look at the phone. I am not going to trade in my 4G, will hold onto it during my 30 day trial period (or until I'm happily wedded to the 3D phone) then probably sell it on CL (since it's happily rooted) with the extras I have for it.

    My 3D definitely has worse 3G reception than my 4G, but I like the phone overall a lot better. It was like this with the 4G when it first came out, and the reception got better with new updates. This one will, too. I still get reception everywhere, it just has a bar less. It is so much faster, though, and I really like Sense 3.0 and the 3D photos.

    Anyone have been told, by the person on the other end of the phone, that your voice is low and crackling. Have you had more drop dropped calls than previous phone(I came from evo4g)?

    So I have had people telling me they can't hear me, my voice is crackling, and I have had 2 dropped calls since I got the phone (late last week).

    Anyone have had similar problems???

    I haven't had any of the call quality issues that you are referencing but I have noticed that I haven't been getting as strong of a signal that I had been used to with the 4G. I don't know if you also have noticed this but I am guessing the two would be likely connected.

    I have noticed that call quality and signal strength are not as good as the EVO 4G. I just deal with it because the phone is so rad otherwise. It is dissapointing but not a deal breaker for me.
