Reviews summary

The HTC Evo 3D, according to the best info we could find, promises to live up to it's hype. First, as for the "3D" element, the Evo 3D will include a 3D YouTube client and a 3D Blockbuster app.

The phone is reported to have a 4.3 inch display, and will be powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor.

Add a dual, 5MP camera which can generate 3D photos and offers HD record capability, an HDMI port and Android's 2.3 OS, and you have a phone fighting for Top Gun.

This is definitely one phone to watch, as it appears to be packed with crazy powerful functionality and may well set the standard for the balance of 2011.

Large touchscreen and has a 3D camera but it’s thick and bulky

from Android Tapp
The HTC EVO V is a mighty fine choice if your on Virgin Mobile. It has a large and vivid screen, capable of 4G Internet, pretty fast under the hood, has a good camera (and takes 3D pics and flicks, but more novel than practical) on the rear; though you have to fork out $240 to buy the phone out right, you can activate it for as little as $35 bucks per month without being tied to a few years contract...

It may not have the best 3D camera resolution, but the phone isn't lacking in speed or the ability to keep you connected with others

from Top Ten Reviews
The HTC Evo 3D has the ability to take 3D pictures, although the resolution is low. However, 2D pictures have a nice resolution. The battery life for this multimedia cell phone has a greater than average talk time than the other phones we reviewed. It comes with a dual-core processor and the Android 2.3 operating system. The HTC Evo 3D has a qHD screen that's great for watching movies. It's also a Wi-Fi hotspot that can give other electronic devices near your phone wireless internet access... Full review

Stylish and solid design, notification LED, 3D camera

from Ausdroid
The ‘3D’ aspects of this phone add unnecessary bulk and weight to what could have been a pretty decent good old ‘2D’ phone, I find it too thick and too heavy to be a practical everyday phone. Personally I find 3D to be a gimmick and not really necessary on a screen this small, but obviously HTC believe this does has a market as do Telstra, Vodafone and Optus who all have the Evo 3D currently available. This phone will appeal only to the most dedicated of 3D fans who don’t mind the compromise in size and weight for the 3D features... Full review

Go for this device only if you really love 3D

from TechTree
The Evo 3D has almost everything that you expect from today's smartphone. Its dual-core CPU and gigabyte of RAM should be enough to sell this product. Moreover, the 3D capability is a good conversation starter, and as always Sense UI is beautiful. On the other hand, the phone's 3D feature is not worth the premium it commands. The video player is underwhelming, and in terms of raw power it still can't beat the GS2. To sum up, go for this device only if you really love 3D. Otherwise, if all you require is just a powerful droid, then the GS2 and Sensation are the phones to choose from... Full review

A fun device for those who really want a 3D display and 3D camera

from Brighthand
The HTC EVO 3D is a lot of fun, but I'm not sure that all of the tradeoffs are worth it unless you're more interested in the 3D camera than anything else. It's fairly heavy, and the voice quality is somewhat disappointing. And I know it's somewhat nitpicky, but the pattern on the back of the phone really is uncomfortable to hold for long periods...

Large screen, heavy device, pretty good audio quality

from Coolsmartphone

The EVO 3D is a very interesting device with only one competitor at the moment which is the LG Optimus 3D announced back at Mobile World Congress in February this year.

Whilst the EVO overall is a better device than the LG is still has a very ‘niche’ market as the 3D features keep the price of the device rather high around the £500 mark sim free or £35-40 a month on a contract and if you were to take out the 3D part of this device you are not left with anything which really stands out, it has a large screen like the Sensation, a 5 megapixel camera compared to an 8 on the Sensati...

Built well, looks good, feature packed out-of-the-box

from tech2

At a street price of Rs. 35,990, it’s a bit cheaper than the Optimus 3D and even though HTC’s 3D implementation is a tad better, it’s a hollow victory, overall. The whole idea of a flagship phone is that it’s supposed to define the absolute best a company has to offer. Naturally, one would expect all the features present with the competition and perhaps even more in order to justify the high price. HTC were on the right track with the Evo 3D, but somewhere down the line, they lost their way. The 1GB of internal storage is next to useless, since it’s only for downloaded apps. You a...

A tremendously good phone on both paper and in practise

from Tracy and Matt
Truthfully, I think that the EVO 3D is the best phone HTC has made. The hardware has been beautifully built , the screen is gorgeous to look at and the Sense 3.0 skin is the best Android skin I've have used - although it is a bit intense. Plus you have the added bonus of 3D as a cherry on top... Full review


flat out to go get atohner battery. Some of the other ones out there just say to turn the phone in to airplane mode and not to use it and the battery will go all day!The bottom line is: 1) The Evo has a huge screen, fast processor and a very underpowered battery.2) 3rd party manufacturers batteries work fine, but don't expect a good product for the prices they sell them for. If you get lucky (I did 2 3500mah batteries and external charger for $20 on ebay) and get good product, they are a steal. If you end up having to ship them back and forth due to poor quality, you're better off getting a few standard ones at the Sprint store instead. Also something to keep in mind, cases and covers for the extended batteries are very limited but the larger battery cover protects the camera much better than the stock one.3) HTC Hero/Touch Pro 2 batteries work fine in the EVO. They are much cheaper than finding HTC Evo batteries for some reason 4) Since the Hero/TP2 batteries work, you now know why the battery life is so short same power supply, much bigger draw.Hopefully we all will continue to enjoy our phones and laugh when we see articles trying to sell us a $100 accessory pack instead of just asking our local Sprint store for a deal.

Digital Versus

Overall display quality is very satisfactory with great brightness

from Digital Versus
The HTC Evo 3D lives up to its name by bringing 3D to a smartphone—and doing it well. That shouldn't imply that the rest of the handset hasn't been carefully designed or that the attractive HTC Sense interface didn't impress us either. In some ways, it's an improvement on the HTC Sensation, but there's a lot more scope to make more innovative uses of the 3D display... Full review

A tremendous phone with a cool extra 3D element

from TechRadar
HTC's reticence to give us any indication of how to use the 3D for gaming or movies, plus the higher cost, we'll have to say we're hugely disappointed with the Evo 3D. If HTC decides to bless us with decent content via Watch or a download 3D games, we'll bump it up a star or so - but if that never happens, this phone will fall quickly into the 'cool, but not much point' category...
