HTC EVO 3D Review: Does a third dimension belong in the EVO line?
An odd statement on build quality "HTC is known for making solid handsets but this isn't one of them. It's not the cheapest phone we've ever touched, but it's probably one of the cheapest handsets we've seen from HTC."
I wasn't aware of this, excited about it: "The EVO 3D ships with an app called Media Share, which is a DLNA application that allows you to stream media to your HDTV or to other DLNA-compatible devices." (most other apps I've tried for DLNA are kludgy and resource-intensive)
"Call quality is a solid experience that most will have no qualms about. There were only a couple of times that background noise was apparent during a call, but the receiving end said that the call was loud and clear. While you'll probably be using the EVO 3D as a media device more than a phone, at least you know it makes a good call."
"We usually don't see HTC throw together a phone, especially when its had a year to work on this device, but that's exactly what seemed to have happened with the EVO 3D."
Which pretty much sums up my assessment. Yeah, there are lots of enhancements made, but other than 3D nothing really sets it apart from other phones, as was the case with the Evo 4G. I'll probably give it a 30-day whirl and see how talk of the Samsung Galaxy II on Sprint progresses, which should last me until the Nexus 3 (if it comes to Sprint) in Q4.
