The 3D is a much newer phone.
Don't get me wrong, the Evo 4G is a nice phone if you're not a devout gamer. I'm currently on the Evo 4G and, rather than upgrading soon, I'm planning to hold onto it for a bit and see what Sprint offers over the next few months. So, if you don't mind the fact that this phone won't see anymore updates it might not be a bad idea for the kids. I use mine for web surfing, gmail, google+, texting, gps, news feeds, shopping Amazon, and reading kindle ebooks and it's not a bad device.
The question is will the kids get bored with no updates during the next two years?
Also, I'm not sure if this phone will work on LTE when Sprint implements it. How long will wimax phones continue to be supported by Sprint?
