If you are actually wanting reasons to keep the phone, but are looking for solutions to your problems: The FAQ covers a few as well as a number of other threads in this forum. Like your battery issue, the 3G issue. I can even link specifics.

But if you're just going to go back to your 4G, I wish you well.

Add in the Market not working now - loads and shuts off goes back to homescreen -

I guess I am confused and bummed that i will be working on my 3rd Evo 3D since release - I also am not a photo fanatic and am amazed how much i miss the Evo 4Gs 8mp camera for some reason -

I guess I will give one more a shot but in all likelihood with all the Sprint phones i have owned replacements even brand new ones always seem to be worse than the original for some reason - also i never had one issue with the Evo 4G orginal release date phone until traded in -

But thanks for the kind words, most would hate on this type of posting -

I thought you can only exchange a phone once? thats what sprint told me, I would like to exchange my evo 3d because the ear piece is muffled and cuts out signal is descent, so is it that you are on your third evo 3d? do they charge you?

If that's their policy, can't you get your cash back within the 30 days and just go to Radio Shack?

No, if you have a defect etc. and your within your 30days of new phone warranty you can exchange it or return it no questions asked - I once exchanged 4 Sprint HTC Touch's because they all never held a charge, units would get way to hot and the software froze up literally all the time - I know Sprint stores have issues with returns/exchanges and usually give the customer refurbished units so becareful - i am now dealing with RS since the original Evo and always get a brand new in box unit to replace my defect

The best part of exchanging multiple phones is if you document it with Sprint and than call the retentions hotline and complain and have proof of all the exchanges they will honor you big time, in the case of the above i was able to upgrade to the Centro at no cost to me with overnight shipping to my door for my troubles!

Problem is here there is no other worthy phone out and will be out for awhile, and for now I have heard to stay away from the coming Motorola Photon for the sake of it being Motorola and the software issues that go along with it - so i just may go for my 3rd 3D this weekend!

what happens if you exchange it on the 28th day lets say, you get the phone, same problem, then what? is there a penalty that you pay? It will take 2 days for the phone to get to me. Then my 30 days are up.

Man my Evo 3D has been pissing me off at work. My EVO would get at least some signal, whether it be roaming or not so I could at least send/receive text messages at work all night. My evo 3d will have a little X for 90% of the time. Makes me furious. New phone, not as good a signal, and the speaker can't be heard from my machine like my evo. I regret it.

I got mine from Amazon. I'm on my second now. The original had the crooked screen, it was overheating, and the speaker was bad. The person I spoke to with Amazon said that every the you get a replacement it's like the warranty starts all over. If you're getting a new one at the end of every 30 day cycle though, they'll probably start to wonder and just tell you to suck it up and deal with it.

She also told me that Amazon doesn't deal with the returned models. They just send them to Sprint and they sell them refurbished.

Default Replacement evo seems to have a different screen

I got my original 3d on the 21 of June..had issues with it locking up...called sprint they sent me a brand new one. The new one seems to have a different screen then the first one I had. The new one dosent seem to have a tiny bit of bluish tint to it as the first one does ..anyone else notice that. The new one seems to have a more natural look on all the colors

How fast?

Curious about speeds in other areas with sprint 4G. I'll get from 4-9 up average about 6.

Lol... I know.. Pictures or it didn't happen Seriously I don't know the actual speed, I don't use Speedtest or anything like that. Just based it on how long it takes to do something. On the web I could tap on something, like a thread on this forum and be there instantly. If I accidentally tapped the wrong link it would go there before I could hit the back button.

Angry Evo 3D Stability

Hey guys, if anyone has the Evo 3D, how is the stability? I recently got a G2x and have had to consistently pull the battery 2 to 5 times a day because it'll freeze or lock up. Majorly frustrating coming from the awesome Nexus One.

For me it has been very stable. Have had it since 6/23. I have never had a random re-boot, and once had to do a battery pull. That's it.

Owner since day 1. (Actually, since day -2, if you want to count that way.)

Never had to do a battery pull, never had a random reboot.

I have had some apps lock up or crash, but I'm pretty sure that's the fault of the app developers, not the phone. (It's limited to a few specific apps, and always the same ones.)

This is good info. Thanks, guys. HTC seems to really do the best work with hardware.

New question: What do you think of the 3D? Dealing with technology for so long, I should be a jaded jerk by now, but I'm still a total sucker for gimmicks. I'm going to try and play with one tonight, but what are your impressions with the 3D after having it for a while?

I think the 3D is really cool and works well. Something that I always wished I had was a way to capture the depth of scenery since I do a lot of hiking in the mountains. That said, it's not something I use every day. I don't watch many movies (although I struggled through most of the Green Hornet - the 3d is cool, but the movie itself trash), so it's kind of limited use for me; I mostly use it for taking pictures. 3D games might be neat but I don't play games a whole lot on the phone either.

All in all I'm impressed by the 3D, but it was never the deciding factor. The phone is just a very solid upgrade to one of the best phones of last year.

Default New phone same issues.

So I received my new Evo 3D yesterday after a weird 4 weeks of waiting for it to arrive, long story. That being said I have issues with this one as well. First off the on/off button is really hard to use. It takes a couple of presses to get the phone to turn off or on, that alone will drive me crazy. Has any one else reported that as an issue? Also my signal strength is poor again compared to all my other Sprint phones. Calls break up or get dropped in the locations that use it the most. I wonder if I should try a third ( I have an additional 30 days on this phone) I am beginning to think the 3D is just a tad weaker in my crappy locations and no matter how many I try it just wont matter. I dread the thought of going back to my Hero until another phone that I want comes out.

I can't really compare side by side... but I'm fairly certain my 3D has about the same signal as any other one on Sprint.

For whatever reason both EVO 3D's have been weaker and have bad call quality compared to my other phones. I have one Hero, two Moments, one EVO 4g and two LG Rumor 2's. The call quality on all them is fine. When I had T Mobile no matter what phones I tried they all sucked in the same locations as well.

Well I am in the same boat guys. I am on my second 3d becuase of week signal strenght. I went from an EVO and never thinking twice abought signals or dropped calls, to my 3d needing an Airrave installed in my house just to keep a call going. my 3d dropps calls every other day. I spent an 2 hours over at my local corperate spritn store. They did all the test just to come back and tell me my phone is fine, baloney.

I am really disappointed. I don't know what for to shoot for at this point. The Nexus Prime maybe but who knows when that might be available. I guess I can try one more 3D but I don't have high hopes.

The 3DVO has nothing but my deepest love, respect, admiration, and my eternal devotion. I fell head over heals for this device as soon as I turned on the 3D camera. But besides that feature, there are a plethora of things that make this smartphone the perfect match for me and my lifestyle. I don't see myself with any other phone moving forward.

I wish I was having your luck. I would be perfectly happy if it wasn't for these issues I seem to keep having. maybe third time will be the charm.

This is actually my second round. Within 4 days of receiving it, the camera function wouldn't work at all, and I would have random blackouts where the device would fade to black. I returned it within the first week, so the device I have now is my replacement. Then on the 4th of July, just two weeks after getting the replacement, I accidentally singed the glass screen with some burning residue from the fireworks I was burning and filming at the same time (shooting sparks). It's the size of two pinheads, and it's quite noticeable when the screen it off. Shortly after getting the replacement, I opted not to get a screen protector because I had something else pressing to deal with, so I literally left the Best Buy parking lot before going into the store.

I also didn't have the heart to exchange the phone yet again, since I've had so many other issues with it that first week. That next day after the accident, you can bet that I bought a screen protector though. So I'll live with the imperfections for now. And when it's time for an upgrade, I'll pray that the 3D feature is still available on the next generation of EVO. If not, then I'll try my best to get another 3DVO.

Smile Evo 3d vs Evo 4g

I had an evo 4g and I think I prefer some things about the 4g over the 3d.

When you take a photo with the evo 3d you can not share it from the camera app, instead you have to open the gallery and share it from there. On the evo 4g, you could be looking at a photo, click menu and share. that was very nice and easy.

on the mail app on the evo 3d you can not click next previous, you have to click menu first. on the evo 4g there were next and previous buttons right there. one thing the evo 3d does have that i like is the ability to mark as read with checkboxes. i wish they would combine the two.

typing on the evo 3d i make more mistakes than i did on the evo 4g, in portrait mode the keys are smaller on the 3d than evo4g.

the icons on the 4g are bigger, which i like

watch espn app on evo 3d is choppy and shows distorted lines, on the evo 4g it worked good. i also liked the kick stand, nice when im at my desk.

i think i may go back to evo 4g given the opportunity, i like the bigger screen and the setup of the camera and mail app. i also like to slightly larger screen. the 3d stuff is a gimic to me and not really how i want to preserve my memories.

On the EVO 3D in Review mode of the pic, simply tap the pick and the Share Arrow is available along with other options.

OP - I too have used the Evo 4G extensively, still own it. It's a fine device, but the comparisons you make are really not on target.

You can use custom ROMs on the Evo 4G, or the Evo 3D. I in fact do use a custom ROM - CM7 on my Evo 4G, which is excellent.

I may put CM 7 on the Evo 3D in the future, that will be great as well. However, I am using stock ROM on my Evo 3D right now.

All the points you raised are software based, and they can be so easily addressed. I use Swiftkey X keyboard on my Evo 3D, works great.

While I dearly love my Evo 4G, there is no way I would give up my Evo 3D to go back to it. The Evo 3D is so much faster. The screen has far better resolution. It's got way more memory. Bottom line is the Evo 3D is a great upgrade from the Evo 4G.

I too am so glad I am not having major problems with my 3D. I love it! And I didn't care about the 3D neither at 1st and never did watch the Green Hornet. But taking 3D pics is kind of cool but having more internal space and memory and the faster processor and olf course the screen I love it. Yea I miss the kickstand but I have a seidio surface case on the way with a kickstand. They have a 15% off coupon code right now BTS2011.

My friend misses his EVO cause he said it was louder he doesn't like the speaker on this one and says the alarm clock isn't near as loud as the old one. It wakes me up! But I love the 3D and I have almost every app that I had on my old plus the ones I had to delete cause I ran out of space and I still have a lot of space left. That's my main thing space and faster processor and double the ram. Oh and the sense 3.0 and the skins I forgot I love the new lock screen. It's awesome!

Oh yeah I forgot to mention the pull down toggles. That's handy too. Took me awhile to get used to them cause I was so used to having 4 separate ones on my EVo on this one page. LOL! My friend just switched from T Mobile to Sprint and got her and her 13 year old a 3D and her 22 year old wanted and got the photon to be different from them. My friend said she charged it all night and is at work and battery is 1/2 gone and she hasn't done much and she forgot her charger. This is her 1st smart phone and I need to show her somethings and make sure stuff isn't syncing every 10 minutes and that her brightness isn't all the way. But whenever I check my battery status and what's been using it on this phone it always says display mine says 81% now. But my battery is better on this phone then my old one but still not the best and I have extras.

Default How is this phone's performance?

I've noticed that the benchmarks are considerably lower for this phone. Do these results really reflect the phone's actual performance, or is the EVO 3D capable of much more than that.

I will be playing mostly simple 2D games like PapiWall and occasinally 3D games. This phone will be able to handle these games with no problem right?

Overall, are you guys satisfied with your purchase (for those of you who have this phone)?
