I absolutely love this phone.

This phone is unbelievably fast - I multitask a lot, so I'll have many apps open, browsers open, take pictures, etc. etc. and the the system barely ever slows down.

Accessing the internet on this phone is amazing, I don't use my laptop as much anymore when I'm home because of how great the browsing experience is. Unfortunately, I don't ever get 4g speeds to the point where I don't even try it anymore. But 3g and WiFi are great.

The battery life on the phone isn't as bad as some make it out to be. Few big things, download a battery management application and make sure your screen brightness is set to low. You'll be fine.

Sense 3.0 is great, it's fast, it's easy to setup shortcuts, widgets, folders, etc. on your home screen. Very easy to use.

Google Marketplace is also unbelievable, it feels like I have access to an unlimited amount of apps whenever I want them, and they download and install so fast.

I can go on and on about this phone, I just love it. Best phone I've ever had, Hands Down!

I too was on the fence on buying this phone since I do have an HTC EVO 4G and with the Gingerbread 2.3.3 release it has been wonderful. I decided to go ahead a treat myself and made the purchase.

The Pros:

1. HTC Sense 3.0 is absolutely the best custom UI on the market at this time. Very refined and many enhancements over the previous version that was included in the HTC EVO 4G.
2. Features galore. There are many subtle options built into the OS that many reviews don't mention like enable power efficiency and turn on power saver when your battery is @ xxx %.
3. 3D. Definitely a gimmick but once you see it in person it has a certain WOW factor that is hard to get over.
4. Battery life is good. This is mostly because of the OS version of Android 2.3.3 which the original HTC EVO 4G received recently and the battery life on that is now good as well.
5. Very responsive and fast.
6. iphone style texting with the speech bubbles. I know I'm a sucker for style and flash.

The Cons:

1. No kickstand. I did go to HTCPedia.com and purchased the hard case with kickstand but it is on backorder.
2. Speaker Volume is not as loud as the original HTC EVO 4G. Definitely noticeable so don't let the other reviewers tell you otherwise.
3. USB Charging port was moved to the left side of the phone. I preferred the bottom myself.

All in all, it is a great phone and I am please to have it. If you are on the fence and can afford it, why not? Is this phone a huge step up from the original HTC EVO 4G? Probably not so if you don't care for the extra bells and whistles, you can probably get away with keeping the EVO 4G for another year.

This phone is just awesome. Sense 3.0 is phenomenal. 3D is fun, but just a small part of what makes this phone special. It's super fast and will get the android 4.0 ice cream sandwich update. HTC knows how to make a top of the line handset.

OK.. how many Smartphones take and display 3d pictures without those
silly 50's B movie glasses????
Not only that but it has an EMF/Magnetic sensor so you can accurately locate stars,planets, and constellations at night or day.
It has a proximity sensor so you can't accidentally cheek dial when you hold it up to your face to speak.
All compass programs will work fast and accurately with it.
It has light sensor that can automatically adjust for room lighting.
It has a gyroscope and G-Force sensor that allow you to play balancing games.
The 3D display is large and easy to see.
Iv had it since 2011 and it's taken hits,bumps,bangs and still working perfectly.

For that.. I give a 5 star Amazon Rating.

Thats right, as of right now, this is the best phone on the market. I will spare you the long drawn out dribble, so here are a few points to consider. You are probably tossing between this or iphone 4.

- 3D is just awesome. Taking pics and video is great. The gaming and movie experience is 2nd to none (for phones).
- I dont believe iphone gives insurance now, this phone does.
- Does EVERYTHING!!!! 4g, wifi, hotspot, wireless modem, bluetooth, gps etc... too numerous to mention.
- iphone is good, but you are not getting the value-per-feature, EVO 4g 3D ....gives much more for the price.

iphone 4 lacks most of the features found on the EVO3D4G, iphone may come out with another phone, but nobody knows when. If they do, what features will ot have?? If your looking for a phone now...EVO3D4G is the way to go.

I've had this phone for a few weeks and love it. I still use iphone for app. development, but the EVO is the main tool in my belt.

In the end, its just a smart-phone, and they all do BASICALLY the same thing, but some are sexier than others. Right now...EVO3D4G is where its at.

I bought this phone in July of 2011 and it was a great buy. Or so I thought! It turned out to be the phone from hell. The 1st month of having it, I had to return it and get a new one because the previous one over heated! Then, once I received the nest one, it went down hill from there. It freezes, overheats, Shuts off unexpectedly and I lose connection constantly! It overheated so bad one day, as soon as I picked it up, it burned to the touch. I ended up dropping it to the floor damaging the frame. I no longer have that red piece that goes around the camera part because it peeled off!! I rarely used the 3D option so I have no opinion on that. For those who bought it and had no problems, LUCKY YOU, I'm envious. For those who are planning on buying it, GOOD LUCK!

I really like the EVO 3D for blazing fast speed and cool features. I can download and use apps within a few seconds. The video is amazing and I love the customizable interface of the phone.

However, weighing heavily against the features I like about this phone are the following (in order of magnitude):

#1 - The battery life is terrible - Even after I did all of the battery saving tricks (dimming the phone, app killers, battery saver apps, shutting down network features...etc), the battery still runs out way too quickly. I'm always trying to find a place to charge my phone and I don't use it that often.

#2 - The onscreen keypad is way too sensitive, very small, and difficult to use. I've been trying to train my fingers on the keypad, but it is difficult to use because a key will be pressed just before my finger touches the screen and the keys appear very narrow.

#3 - USB on the side of the phone. This wasn't an issue when I first started using the phone, but now I find it increasingly annoying because I find it necessary to be plugged in so frequently (see issue #1 above).

#4 - The speaker is very weak on high volume. For turn by turn directions I could barely hear the voice navigation over the engine noise.

Unfortunately if I can't find a good enough fix for the battery life issue, this will be a deal breaker and I will return the phone. Because what's the point of having this phone if the battery is constantly going dead?

I upgraded this from HTC EVO 4G. It has a faster processor and the HTC sense is nice. Of corse the 3D feature is the talk of my team mates.

This is a really good phone, i have only had it for few days but it has been incredible, the 3d is suprisingly good and does not strain my eyes s much as I thought that it would. The battery life leaves something to be desired but overall it is an impressive device.

I couldn't be more pleased! The one thing this bad boy is missing is a Root, and that's gotta be coming soon.
