At a Glance

It runs on Sprint's expanding 4G network, offering simultaneous voice and data connectivity and download speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. Additionally, the phone can still connect to 3G data services in areas not currently served by Sprint's 4G network (learn more about Sprint's 4G network below). The phone also includes Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking plus Mobile Hotspot capability for sharing your 3G/4G connection with up to eight Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously.

This phone boasts dual 5-megapixel auto-focus cameras on the rear that can capture stunning Full HD 1080p video in 2D as well as 3D video at HD 720p. You can view HD content on a compatible HDTV via DLNA wireless streaming.

Packed full of powerful mobile communication and multimedia features, the HTC EVO 3D has a large, vibrant 4.3 inch display for easy viewing of videos--from Sprint TV programming to HD or 3D movies captured on the dual 5-megapixel cameras . It's also powered by a screaming fast 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

The forward-facing 1.3-megapixel camera makes it easy to have video calls using the two-way voice and video service from Qik (upgraded account service required). Video chat service is available as an upgrade to the pre-loaded Qik app to enable conversational, interactive, real-time sharing between mobile devices or from mobile-to-desktop.

The Web browser along with Sprint 4G speed delivers a full, no-compromise Internet experience. Adobe Flash technology ensures that rich Internet content, such as embedded video and animation, are displayed the way they are meant to be seen. Pinch-to-zoom and automatic text reflowing provide easy Web page views.

In addition to the Android OS, the HTC EVO 3D includes HTC Sense, a user interface overlay from HTC that makes it easy for you to create an individualized mobile experience tailored specifically to your needs.

Other features include 4 GB of internal memory with pre-loaded 8 GB microSD memory card (optional 32 GB cards supported), HDMI audio/video output, Bluetooth for hands-free devices and stereo music streaming, GPS for navigation via built-in Google Maps and location-based services (plus access to the optional Sprint Navigation turn-by-turn service), personal and corporate e-mail, and up to 6 hours of talk time (see full specifications below).

HTC Sense Experience

Boasting the latest HTC Sense experience, the EVO 3D features a customizable active lockscreen that transforms the lockscreen into a real-time window to the most important information and content, such as social updates, photos, weather, or stock updates that are viewed by simply waking up the display.

The Personalize button gives you access to all the stuff that makes the HTC Sense device truly yours--widgets, apps, Sound sets, and more. New options include skins, Sound sets, and live lock screen personalization.

See all your e-mail accounts in one place--no more switching between accounts. Just tap the bar that shows the current email account, and then tap All accounts. Your e-mail messages are color-coded so you can easily distinguish which e-mail accounts they belong to. You can also choose to view accounts individually.

Capture, record, playback and stream video--all in 3D (black model shown; see larger image).

With the People widget, you always know what your friends are up to. The widget lets you choose a group of contacts, and then you can see what that group is up to right on your home screen. The widget not only shows you each friend’s photo but also their latest social network status and any missed calls or SMS messages from them.

You can also access visual voicemail through Phone or Messages. Use the slider bar to go back and forth in a message .

The HTC EVO 3D weighs 6 ounces and measures 5.0 x 2.6 x 0.48 inches. It provides 1 GB of internal memory and supports microSD cards up to 32GB. It comes with a large-capacity, 1730 mAh lithium-ion battery. It runs on Sprint's 4G network as well as the 800/1900 CDMA/EV-DO Rev. A frequencies.

Sprint's Blazing Fast 4G Network

Sprint 4G offers a faster wireless experience than any other U.S. national wireless carrier, and Sprint is the only national carrier offering wireless 4G service in 32 markets (with more coming online soon). Sprint 4G delivers download speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G, giving this mobile phone the fastest data speeds of any U.S. wireless device available today. As of August 2011, Sprint offers 4G service in 71 markets in 28 states.

Sprint 4G services dramatically increase download speeds for photos, videos and large files. You can download a favorite song, picture, sitcom or large video in seconds, not minutes, or watch live streaming video--all while on the go, not just from the home or office. Additionally, businesses can benefit from the fast connectivity speeds of 4G. Some examples include:

  • Real estate agents can conduct virtual property tours.
  • Construction teams using 4G in the field can save valuable time by sharing schematics with engineers online.
  • Insurance companies can speed their claims management through real-time communication with on-site adjusters.
  • Health care professionals can improve their ability to remotely monitor patients.
  • Emergency first responders can rapidly assess and coordinate disaster action with real-time on-site video and audio.
  • Photojournalists can instantly transfer high-resolution images to the newsroom.

Sprint Navigation

This GPS-enabled phone provides optional access to Sprint Navigation for driving directions on your mobile phone--by voice and onscreen. Along the way, turn-by-turn directions will be announced in a clear voice and displayed on your phone. For example, Sprint Navigation will say, "Go 1.2 miles and turn right on Elm Street." As you approach the turn, you will hear, "Turn right on Elm Street." Sprint Navigation also provides proactive traffic alerts with one click re-routing. And it's easy to find restaurants, banks, cafes, hotels and more from over 10 million points of interest across the U.S.

Android Gingerbread Operating System

Android Gingerbread

The HTC EVO 3D 4G runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread)--the fastest version of Android available for smartphones yet. It features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.

Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.

The onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.

The EVO 3D also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

5.0 out of 5 stars EVO 3D vs EVO 4G: Flagship Faceoff June 25, 2011
Color Name:Black
Off the bat, the EVO 3D has been getting a lot of mixed reviews. People either love it or hate it, but many reviews floating around have tended to direct the focus of their positive or negative feedback towards one of two things: the 3D features, or everything else. I hope the dispel the mass hysteria of other reviews by giving you a realistic account of my ongoing experience with this undoubtedly groundbreaking new phone. I'll also be heavily comparing it side by side with its predecessor, the EVO 4G, which I've owned for a year now. And for those of you who will be replacing another Android phone, I'll include an overview of how to transfer apps and data from your other phone to the EVO 3D.

Note: Be aware that I will also be mentioning the EVO 4G frequently throughout this review, so be sure to pay attention and not confuse the two.

Let's quickly look at what's new. Here are my pros (+) and cons (-). More in-depth coverage follows:

+ 3D glasses-free display - simply reciting the obvious here!
+ Dual 5 megapixel rear cameras - photos and videos shot in 3D can also be viewed in 2D!
+ Dedicated physical camera button - with two pressure levels, like a real camera
+ qHD display - ultrafine, high quality graphics at 540x960 screen resolution
+ Dual core Snapdragon processor - hasn't freezed up on me once!

5.0 out of 5 stars plum color sweetness October 29, 2011
Color Name:Purple
Could not be happier with my purchase. I was looking for the best deals on a new phone because I was due for an upgrade and i had my mind set on an EVO 4g or the shift then I realized that i wanted the bigger screen & as much as I disliked touch keyboards I would be willing to compromise. I was set on the white EVO untill I decided to check the specs on the 3d EVO which I assumed it was all the same except it did 3d but i was wrong. The 3d is about 3 times faster than EVO 4g, higher res screen w/ true 16:9 widescreen, sense 3.0, better battery, etc

before I ordered my 3d I realized the PLUM version was coming out. I was a bit excited to hear that but i was also worried being a guy and all that it would be too purple for me. Once I recieved mine I noticed the plum color was very subtle but It was perfection. The photos made it look really purple but honestly you can barely tell, it almost looks black at night

and physical keyboards? Well forget it and get THIS ONE. I know I am not looking back. This phone is fast and super smooth

5.0 out of 5 stars High Quality Phone / Solid Build July 9, 2011
By jfranco
Color Name:Black

- Battery management included in the software (explanation included in summary)
- Application / Memory management included in the software (explanation included in summary)
- QHD screen which displays full web pages equal to a PC
- Build quality
- 800mhz frequency added to this phones radio
- The 3d works which makes it more than a gimmick


- Would prefer more internal storage.
- High resolution display makes the icons smaller which you may not like coming from a phone with a lower resolution display because it may strain your eyes.
- Not full root capable at this time but HTC is working on it (so are the XDA developers)

Summary: Summary of the Pros:

I have always been a fan of HTC sense and its widgets. This version provides a user experience like no other. There are days were I like to position or day trade in the stock market and the HTC stock widget app is great for monitoring stocks' current trading price and it includes charts. I also make use of the HTC calendar for scheduling my appointments with clients. It is beautiful to look at and it works well.There is a battery management system included (go to menu,settings then power...) to enable power efficiency or power saving profiles that you can tweak to your needs. I like this because it eliminates the need to install a third party app. When you pull down the drawer from the top of the screen and touch "quick settings" at the bottom, there is an option that reads, "total memory".Touch "total memory" to open a list of currently running programs which you can move to the sd card...

5.0 out of 5 stars The EVO 3D: A Worthy Successor June 24, 2011
Color Name:Black
4.7 stars*****

UPDATED Call Quality 6/25

USEFUL TIP: Want to find more 3D content for your EVO 3D? Use the Youtube app on the phone and search for: yt3d:enable=true.
This will provide you with a ton of 3D content! There are also some apps in the marketplace to allow you to download these videos to show friends when WIFI is not available.

The EVO 3D was a phone I was originally on the fence about purchasing. After all, I loved my HTC EVO 4G and was happy with its performance. I debated about whether this phone was really worth the extra cash simply for the sake of having the newest iteration on the market. My review that follows is my initial thoughts on the phone, particularly in comparison to the previous EVO 4G. If you have a question about the phone, want to see a picture, or want me to test a specific feature; simply post a comment and I will do my best to facilitate your request and answer any questions.


On the Outside:

The EVO 3D, in my opinion is striking in its general design and form. The black with red accenting looks great and the phone itself feels study, without being heavier (now 6 ounces) than the EVO 4g. The glass is the ultra-scratch-resistant gorilla glass, or a substance VERY much akin. The phone feels slightly more thin and narrow than its predecessor, ultimately making it more comfortable to hold, while the somewhat rough texture on its back provides a nice grip surface. When I first saw pictures of the phone, I thought it was less attractive than the original EVO. Now that I have the real deal physically in my hand I think it may be the most attractive phone I have seen to date (if you are in to that sort of thing).
