True but that was the 4g and at that time the 4g wasn't exactly sprints flag ship phone anymore now a days the 3vo is the first of It's kind and def the 4g EVO predecessor..and to top it off sprints not getting the nexus so if Sprint were to wait that long I'd say dumb move on their part and a lot of unhappy 3vo customers and id be one of them that's for sure!!

It's the same exact situation. Around June the next Evo will be coming out most likely and the 3vo will be just as the 4G was at that time the previous year.

I'm just waiting to get the folders from ICS, the device itself doesn't really entice me to switch from my 3D, except for the larger screen.

You don't use Folder Organizer? I don't think I could get by without it.

I thought for a long time I could not either...but I haven't had a file manager installed on my 3V0 for more than maybe 15 minutes throughout its life. Much easier to manage files from my computer and even then I rarely use it.

Smile where is the I.C.S?

I heard the Ice cream sandwich was coming to EVO 3D. Any word on when? I don't want to root this phone as it has been great and fast.

I don't use it to manage anything. Custom icons for folders, custom border for folder view, custom background, user controlled organization, no size limit for amount of apps per folder. Also, custom widget allowing more than 4 apps per row on desktop, including Folder Organizer folders.

I have some of my folders set up alphabetically, and some are organized by most used.

It's irreplaceable.


Perhaps you are thinking of Astro?

It's all good. Get Folder Organizer--easily my most used app, and the closest app that relates to it is Circle Launcher, and Folder Organizer blows it out of the water in every possible way.

dont forget that gingerbread was the 2nd major update for the evo 4g, it also got froyo, so you cant base this first major version update to the evo 4g getting gingerbread.

I use an iPhone style folder widget which looks and works fine. I put my games in it. But the folder in ICS looks cooler.

I'd imagine it's not out due to the following reasons:

1) We don't know the staff size or how many units are being updated by the same staff. HTC has a lot of devices.

2) It really does take a long time to build the OS to work with the phone. Check out the rooting section and the ICS ROMs that are being developed. Those ROMs are still in alpha phase and are not ready for daily use (unless you want to give up some features on the phone like wimax and 3D). Plus HTC has to slap Sense onto it.

3) There has to be a bug fixing phase where HTC and Sprint do testing. If Sprint rejects the build due to bugs, HTC needs to fix them, test the device again, submit the build to Sprint. If Sprint rejects the build again, the process repeats. Each cycle of this could be 2 weeks, could be a month, could be a few days...it all depends on the bugs and how busy the HTC dev team and Sprint testing team are.

HTC / Sprint will get the update to us as soon as they can, with as few bugs as they can. It would be a disaster to release a buggy OS update.

You could go with the assumption that it will be released on June 28th (totally random date) - that way, when it gets released earlier, you will be pleasantly surprised - and you don't have to be disappointed every day!

Okay, please forgive me and allow me to possibly make a dummy of myself. I love my 3vo, but I'm new to smartphones (as of about two months ago) but even though I've searched around a bit, I still don't understand much about the update.

I guess, in newbie terms, what can I expect that I'll be impressed with? Is this something I should be excited about too? (I like to pretend to my wife that I know this thing inside and out as we both have 3vo's, hehe...) Will there be noticeable changes for someone that isn't super "tech" but still in love with his phone?

Or will ICS be impressive mostly to those who love intricacies and little nuances about the way the phone operates? I ask because I still can't figure out if this update will change the "look" more, the feel of the phone, the logistics (speed, etc) or what have you (or a combo of everything).

I guess I just want to be invited to the party and act like I belong.

Thanks folks...

It all depends on how much HTC changes it, but you should notice big changes once ICS gets here. For example:

When you hold the home key for your recent apps, it'll show a preview pane of each of them. If you want to shut down one of those apps, you just swipe it off the screen.

Widget placement is changed. Instead of holding a homescreen location and selecting widget, you would go to your app tray, tap the widget tab, and get a preview of all your installed widgets. You find a widget you want, and you can drop it on your homescreen.

ICS will be hardware accelerated, so it'll feel smoother than your phone is now.

You should also be able to freeze bloatware without root. As long as HTC/Sprint doesn't disable that feature.

Well believe it or not that's your choice but a friend of mine is a sprint rep and he currently has a work phone aka EVO 3d which sprint has released there version of ics on.. now the only issue there currently having is it crashes after about 3minutes of running but the weird thing is about every 15 minutes he was forced to do update after update to fix these crash issues!! So unfortunately clearly there still having complications with it so who knows when US 3vo owners will get our ice cream sandwich

Here is more info on ICS specs, those of you that want to post other features you are looking forward to on the new ICS post here for others to view

Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0)
Gone are the tiny incremental changes we saw from Froyo to Gingerbread. Ice Cream Sandwich heralds a dramatic, bold new Android. Despite its cutesy name, Ice Cream Sandwich is all about strong lines, sharp corners, and darker colors. Google is even switching up the type face to one called Roboto, which is intended to be clearer, crisper, and easier to read. Here's a list of the main new features, but our hands-on impressions go much deeper.

  • Virtual buttons in the user experience free up display space.
  • Create folders by dragging apps on top of each other.
  • There's a new tab for thumbing through your widgets.
  • Calendar app now supports pinch-to-zoom.
  • Gmail gets offline search (nice), a two-line preview, and gesture support for swiping between conversations.
  • The revamped Gmail user interface has an action bar for composing a message, searching, and accessing labels.
  • Take screenshots by holding power and volume down buttons (finally!).
  • "Request desktop site" in the Chrome browser opens the full version of a Web site and syncs with your bookmarks.
  • Save Web pages offline and use up to 16 tabs in the browser.
  • More keyboard error correction and an inline spell check.
  • Access apps directly from the lock screen.
  • A recent applications icon.
  • "Roboto" is a new typeface.
  • Delete individual notifications by dragging them off the notifications menu
  • Improved voice integration and copy and paste.
  • Face Unlock is a facial recognition service that use your face to unlock the phone.
  • New Data Usage options in the Settings menu will notify users when they near a data use limit and disable the feature when the limit is reached.
  • You can kill off apps that are using data in the background.
  • Open the camera quickly from the home screen.
  • Camera has no shutter lag, continuous focus, zoom while recording, panorama photos, time-lapse settings, and 1080p recording.
  • Face detection in the camera.
  • Integrated photo editor, including focus and exposure and "hipster filters" (we don't want to know).
  • New gallery layout, organized by location and person.
  • People app brings together high-res photos, social media information, and status updates.
  • Phone app lets you swipe between favorite friends with integrated visual voice mail.
  • New photo gallery layout for organizing by location and person.
  • Speed up and slow down voice mails.
  • Quick message sends canned response text message when you decline a call.
  • Android Beam, an NFC feature for exchanging information between two phones by tapping them.

Hey folks, I've just deleted a number of rude, inflamatory comments.

Can I ask that if you disagree strongly enough with a post, rather than be rude, hit report and we'll look in to it. We have rules and guidelines (here) which clearly state responses like some of the stuff I've deleted aren't welcome. Attack issues and topics, not people.

Lets move away from bickering and back on to the topic at hand. At least you guys look to be getting the ICS update, it doesn't look as if it's coming to a lot of reletively recent HTC handsets (not in an official capacity anyway).

I wouldn't worry terribly about this.

While it's not uncommon for Sprint testers to get early test copies, HTC committed to early this year, specifically this quarter.

I am not surprised that a rep may have gotten ahold of a test copy, but there's a reason phones are released to responsible testers.

All your friend has succeeded in doing is alarming you without cause. Reps aren't developers. Even if he explained everything to you accurately, for all he knew, he was playing with a problem that is easily solved and trivial to implement.

It's like having the car salesman walk into the dealer's garage to check out a car getting a tune-up, with the spark plugs out. He might conclude that they made it worse because now the car won't start, but he won't have a qualified opinion of the situation.

Right but my main point is in general we are 1 step closer to receiving ics because if sprint is testing it on 3vo's clearly were halfway there so the excitement can begin to build that's my main point is all sorry everyone feels the need to judge and get all in a tizzy of disbelief I know what i was told and believe and i just wanted to share with fellow 3vo owners all love for EVO and sprint and android screw iphone!! Go android here we come ics!! Hopefully sooner then later lol

The nice thing about the past is that it's the past.

No need to get back into it or defend yourself. That's our job. Please everyone, just attack the issue of ICS.

Plus, I see things differently now. I thought you were saying we might not see it due to quality problems as opposed to seeing it coming with test articles as proof. I can dig that.

That's the thing about text on the internet - no one can hear your tone of face, if you know what I mean.

I'm looking forward to the improved task management and possibly the browser in ICS.

Sense is already hardware accelerated, People has finally caught on the the same concepts we've had for some time.

I forgot about the second point.

But have you played with the Honeycomb / ICS browser? It is much nicer. They've tweaked a few things since the HC version, but largely it's the same.

I haven't played with an HTC one past GB. Going by the ICS browser on the Nexus, I do hope the update includes the new features.

Galaxy Nexus In-Depth Browser Review (Android ICS) - YouTube

I also wonder if we'll get the new Roboto font, that looks pretty good, too.

No, I just saw it once you mentioned it, have no clue how that got there, unless I C&P it by mistake, I removed it. It was supposed to be a different link on ICS goodies.

Only if HTC allows us to turn this off, otherwise you could download a launcher from the market thats the "ICS launcher"

If you do what wake suggests, it'll look like you have the stock ICS launcher. Most of those launchers are built right out of the SDK and is nearly identical to what the Galaxy Nexus has. Not everything will be perfectly identical, because ICS uses different coding bases. And Sense will still be running in the background in some ways.

Those ICS launchers are compatible with Gingerbread, so you could try one out, now. Might tide you over until the real ICS comes

i also wish we could get the blue theme, like the status bar icons and battery icons..

I played with this one briefly: https://market.android.com/details?id=mobi.SyndicateApps.ICSv2

It seemed pretty good. Pretty close to the way ICS works, comparing to when I had ICS installed on my phone. Some things, like the widget tab, didn't work the way ICS has it, but I imagine that couldn't be helped.

Without rooting, I don't know of a way to change the icons in the notification bar. Maybe they'll make Sense look more like the stock ICS experience, including the battery color. Gingerbread was mostly green themed, and Sense seemed to follow that. Maybe they'll take a blue theme when ICS Sense comes out.

I agree, im using go launcher to cover up lack luster sense. Although I am running myns warm twopointthree rom. Its the most stable and fastest sense based rom I have tried.

I know it goes against googles open source idealogy. But they should take more control of their OS as far as appearance and functionality. It can still be free for the OEM's. That way the OEM's would be forced to distinguish themselves with superior hardware and form factor. Not by mucking up Android with their stupid skins. At the very least make it a optional down load for those that actually like their skin's UI. I for one used to like Sense. But it has gotten old very old.

If you want a good set of widgets that are very much like Sense, but work for any launcher, check out Android Pro Widgets. Near identical copies to FriendStream, Calandar, and a whole bunch of others. Different enough, though, that they're not identical. But since I picked up ADW in the 10cent deals in early December, I haven't even thought about Sense. I even froze the Sense Launcher in Titanium (not the framework, just the actual launcher).
