I think it's because it has the 3D gimmick that hasn't taken off as intended.

The Desire S is a phone that's still going to be popular with people and businesses looking for a good all-round, mid-range smart phone - which its predecesor, the Desire, was. So the Desire S has pedigree, but the EVO 3D probably has too much novelty.

The popularity of the Desire S means that HTC can charge more for it, because they know it's going to be in demand. Whereas the EVO is a little gimmicky for the business consumer (as well as most regular users) and is probably not in so much demand, hence the low price to attract customers to buy it, especially in the increasingly competitive dual-core market

Plus there have been some reviews criticising the call quality and speakers of the EVO 3D - i.e. it's decidedly average for the phone's overall spec - which is something that will put many buyers off who want to use it mainly as a phone.

As to which is better for you, it all depends on what you're going to use your phone for.
