Phoenix pretty much got completely passed over for WiMax. Which is strange only because its the 6th largest city in the nation. I'm really hoping they don't do the same thing for LTE because I really like Sprint as a company and wish to stay with them.

The following article is good news for me:

The Evo 3D is ok I just wish the screen was more along the size of the original Evo, it feels smaller and that's the only thing I really dislike about it

Well, looks like Samsung just announced that the US CDMA version of the Galaxy III will not have the quad-core processor in it, just like how our version of the HTC ONE X is not having the quad-core processor either...thats just great, so neither of these phones will really be that much of a leap forward from the 3D...so if Apple actually makes the first leap forward with quad-cores(which they said they are)...looks like I'll be a sheep...

You can always wait until next year to upgrade. I'm sure they will quad-core LTE phones next year. I'm starting to think about waiting. I don't think I can go to the IPhone, unless they have an LTE IPhone. Even then I would have to really think about it.

I'll be honest I don't mind not having the quad core, the dev wont or aren't utilizing it in the tablets that have it anyway, a quick duel core with with better camera ( the one x is on the right track) and (cross my fingers) more efficient battery consumption would be nice.. The main thing that bugs me with HTC is they rolled out the Evo 3D big it up then put it in a box and forgot about it, I truly think the evo "3d" is dead, it was a nice try, if they roll out ICS for the evo 3d and said sorry the 3d camera is a no go I'd be cool with that. I got this phone for the duel core and 1gb ram, if I remember right it was one the first if not the first, the 3D was a bonus I only used three times tops.. If they're going to kill the 3D just do it and move on.

Like I said I've tried some of the beta roms of ICS with and without sense4 on the evo 3d and they work great just no camera, give me my camera and video and I'm cool,.. 3D can burn for now for all I care, just my opinion.

Quad vs Dual Core: For those interested, you may find this article helpful:

Quote:
What does this all mean exactly? Well without getting to much into details, this means that the Tegra 3 will be best for some tasks while the S4 will be better at other tasks and both have features that should lead to comparable battery life. In the end, one would be hard pressed to notice a performance difference between the two in either responsiveness or battery life.

Actually the S4 is a rather large leap forward, and has been more than holding its own against the quad cores. Little surprise there, the Krait cores in the S4 are A15 class, while the quads are simply using 4 of the older A9s.

In addition, the quad HTC One X owners are complaining of various speed issues, and I blame the kernel.

Same old story for synchronously clocked multiple cores - when one core ought to be clocked faster, you can clock them for best performance and then waste power, clock them to the lowest common denominator and then starve processes needing speed, or try to split the difference.

The Qualcomms run asynchronously - each core runs at the clock speed that it needs. Put that together with the next generation of chip and yes, the S4 is winning.

Your mileage may vary, best luck with your choice.

I don't know if I buy into all the quad-core stuff yet. Battery life issues plus the fact that we don't really know how much in day-to-day use it's really even helping us. I don't know, need to wait and see how they perform. I only get 8 hours or so on my dual core. Quad core would probably be even less

On another note, I saw my friends Galaxy S2 (Epic 4G Touch) today... I love my Evo3D but I gotta admit, I was jealous. It was lighter than my Evo, the display colors were beautiful, & the camera was nice. My only complaint was I could tell the display was lower resolution than my Evo3D & I prefer Sense to Touchwiz. I have to say, I'd have an even harder time choosing between the two phones if I had to pick again. At the end of the day, I'm not sure I would walk home with an Evo3D. I'm sure it's just grass is always greener syndrome talking

Then again, all I want right now is a Galaxy Note

If it helps any, the Tegra 3 is designed to use 1, 2, or 4 cores as needed. The silicon can provide power savings but at a price of greater software complexity.

We may move WifelyMon to the LTEvo, if so, I'll continue my 3vo happiness.

Using for almost two months. I said "omg!! i should have bought this cool phone six months ago." I am so happy with it's performance so far. I hope the feelings remains the same for as long as i do not plan to upgrade to something truly brilliant and extraordinary like this phone.

I have no idea when LTE is coming to my location, so if I get ICS soon, I don't know if I really need to upgrade right away. I still love my 3VO. It does what I need it to do. I would like a little more memory but that's it. I'm still happy with mine.

Well I know I'll be one of the first time adapters for lte being in the Atlanta market. Still deciding if I want to jump shift, that EvoLTE might make me stay. Never had any real issues with Sprint. Even tho my data has always been iffy I've noticed im getting near 1mb down when before id be lucky to get 200kb down. I guess we will see what happens in May.

I only have 3G where I am at so I'm stuck with 80kbps down and 10kbps up if I'm lucky. Unfortunately, I don't see LTE coming to me anytime soon. I think once my contract is up I might jump ship or just not have a cell phone at all.

The Network Vision upgrade is going to end these 3G speed horror stories. Hope it comes around to you before your contract ends.

Finally took mine into the sprint store, they looked at it. Did a network reset and gave it back. Wifi seems better but 3g data is just as bad as before. And all the other problems are still there.

Oh well, trying to find a used galaxy nexus

As far as the phone goes, I couldn't be happier with it. It's fast, I love the camera, the GPS is spot on (so long as my ROM hasn't gone wonky)...

As far as sprint... been falling out of love with their service as of late. Multiple times where I'll just drop service all together for 5 minutes and then have have it back afterward. I know it isnt my phone here, because friends of mine on sprint have the same problem at the same time.



The Evo 3D was a worthy upgrade from the 4G. It's like the ugly step child as far as support goes though. Stereoscopic display and dual cameras... what're you gonna do, heh. I'd still recommend it if you don't have the cash for the new phones. The first gen scorpion dual core CPU does its leg work a plenty in this one, I never have any hang or lag.

Now I have a 3D tv, I'm even happier with my Evo I'll admit the quality of video is a little soft, not exactly HD, but it still looks great and photo's do too.

I would consider another 3D phone in the future, but sadly no one seems be making one. LG?

After playing with the new evo lte in the sprint store, and looking at the other options available from sprint, I am starting to like my evo3d more.

While the evo lte seems like a wonderful phone, it has one glaring problem - sucky Columbus Ohio 3g I couldn't even get youtube to work at all and the internet was extremely slow. Why would I upgrade to that?

To make matters worse, we have no idea when my city will get LTE. I am glad I have the evo3d, because I feel comfortable it will be able to compete with other phones in running apps for at least another year. If I had to buy wimax 4g phone, I would be locked into wimax for another two years.

This is the first time I feel that the newer phone is actually the lesser phone.

If you are rooted and interested I posted a link to the port of the LTE Rom to the 3D in the all things root section. I compared this Rom next to Ramzes 4G LTE and its the same except for hardware software is the same minus the Mic on the keyboard. 3D camera goes away but gets replaced with 1080p recording and the burst camera feature. Its all the same minus the hardware.

Sent from my poor man's EVO3D 4G LTE ROM hboot 1.50 S-ON (port thanks to Newts) using Tap-a-Talk.

I said yes but unhappy with sprint but I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy. Android mp3 player. And sadly even IT IS MORE FUNCTIONAL than my 3d or my 4g before it. It has better ui better wifi connectivity, and hell even like the Samsung keypad better.. My 3d drops calls everywhere, can't even use my Data at home, and will connect to wifi but still not have Internet capabilities. I'm sick of sprint telling me for the past 2 years 4g service will be in my area later this year yet never happens. I lived in Omaha Nebraska and thought maybe that had something to do with it but now I'm in Miami NO REASON I shouldn't have 4g let alone still have problems with the 3g network

FYI Miami is on the 4g map for sprint. Also if you are having these kind of issues it may be the phone and not the service, my job takes me through some spotty areas and when talking my phone hardly drops calls, my phone will go to roaming without issue as well.

The camera is terrible on the E3D, and Sprint's network is a POS. As soon as the replacement for the Rezound comes out for Verizon, I am jumping ship.

A few things:

1. I want ICS, but have been using the Holo launcher which mimicks the style very closely
2. Battery life is bad. Getting to be a lot worse. I can browse news in Pulse for 3 hrs before the thing gets down to 20%
3. Sprint sucks. I'm getting 50-150kbps up and down

I've had my 3D for a while now and still love it. I rooted it a few months ago and have been as happy as the day I got it. I have been able to play with a few ROMs and am currently running MeanROM ICS 2.3. The battery life is outstanding and ICS is pretty fun to play with. I wasn't going to root it but then I just couldn't wait for the official ICS update to roll around. Glad I took the plunge and went with MeanROM as my daily driver.

After a screen replacement and a month later the screen stops responding again I must say im disgusted with this phone, I should have kept my EVO this phone for lack of a better word SUCKS.

Now I have to wait for a 3D replacement which is backordered from Sprint. So im going to get another crappy 3D.

I out of contract and Sprint is throwing incentives my way to get me back under contract.Samsung Galaxy III here I come, HTC has left a bad taste in my mouth after this one.

I still like my 3DVO but this damn Seidio extended battery is worse than the standard battery now. Maybe I've overcharged it on several occasions, but I've also let it drain completely and recharged it, only to have the same results. It's done in less than a day if I use it more than 5 hours straight. I guess that irrelevant to the question, but it does affect my enjoyment of the device.

Overall, I like my 3DVO. I don't watch 3D movies or play 3D games on it as much as I use to - nor do I visit Phero to view 3D photos like I use to, but I still support the 3D technology. In fact, I finally came around to buying a 3D television to hook up my 3DVO to recently. It's a shame that HTC and Sprint will no longer support this device, but I will continue to do so for quite some time. Today's 3D technology is still the driving force behind me keeping this and other 3D devices in my arsenal, so I hope that at some point HTC will revisit the glasses free 3D technology, either through a tablet or smartphone... And when they do, they'll have a customer waiting for it.

+1 for this. S-on and s-off plain sucks!

I've also bought a 3D tv recently and my phone has come into it's own now that I can finally view my photos and videos on a bigger screen. What I'd really like is a wrist strap hole for that extra bit of security! Or some kind of peripheral that gives you a hand grip so it can be held better when videoing.

I have a holiday coming up and I'll be taking a lot of 3D pics and vids

I'd like to change my answer from yes to HELL NO. This phone is a piece of garbage.

Care to elaborate? I mean, I can see where it might not be a good fit for some people, but calling it garbage? That seems a bit extreme. Of course you might have a bad one, in which case a replacement would seem warranted.

I gotta admit, as much as I've enjoyed this phone over the past year, I'm really anticipating any new Nexus devices coming out later this year. The idea of having something with an NFC, Google Wallet, no Sense, and a good camera is attractive.

Smile Starting to feel the love again

I bought the EVO 3d over a year ago and loved the fact of taking 3d pictures. There is just something about the nerd tekkie in me that it appeals to. I rooted my phone to do the Wifi and it was a wonderful thing. I am currently deployed and my phone has been deactivated, but I can use the wifi. I learned about the update and spent 2 days getting my phone rooted again and the new ICS and s-off (nice touch with the "wire trick"). Now that I can display the 3d pictures as wallpaper, and the added rooted programs (plus I love the look of SENSE widgets that take up the entire screen for information, my EVO 3d has been born again. Also the use of the assistant and gesture launcher, my screen isn't littered with icons. Just widgets that show time, news, people, messages, email, music, friendstream,and bookmarks. I was looking into buying the Samsung Galaxy III, but if I can continue to get SENSE widget updates, root my phone for off the wall apps, and use the assistant to activate and make gestures on the phone for apps, MAKE MINE EVO 3D

Let me tell you my story... When i first went to sprint the newest phone out was the evo 3d. so i got mine then. rooted it had free hotspot, viper rom and a few other nice addon's. I believe i had it for 4 to 5 months. Then suddenly lost it. I called the insuranc company and they told me that there were no 3d's in stock that they would have to send a galaxy s2. i debated it for a while because i was in love with my evo. but did it anyways. got it in the mail pretty fast. then went to root it. i tried for months to get it connected to my pc and never got it so i went back to sprint 3 times for a replacement and still no luck. I just recently called my insurance company and told them the same thing i just told you... except the rooting part lol... they told me i was in luck that they had 1 evo 3d in stock and available. Im so glad to get my evo 3d back its now rooted on hboot 1.58 currently using TWRP for my recovery. using Cool ICS V10 on stock kernel. overclocked to 1178 i do believe. i have no adds and my battery life is great! so in my opinion from when the evo first came out to now it has came a long way indeen and im loving it. thanks for the time guys. glad i could put in my two sence lol

I got the replacement Seidio battery literally just days from the 1 year warranty expiration date. Unfortunately, when I got the replacement battery it seemed no different than the one that I had. I have to charge my phone daily, so I' thinking what's the point of having it. I might as well switch back to the standard battery. I've had the extended battery for so long that I have to admit that it would feel weird to have a flat phone in my pocket... I know it did during that week when I RMA'd it.

Nonetheless, I still like the phone. I don't demand too much from it aside from playing games, texting, using the internet, and calling friends and family, so I guess you can say it's a perfect fit. Since movie studios are still cranking out 3D movies, I hope that HTC or someone will notice the resurgeance and make another 3D phone. Because when that hapens, I'll be first in line for it.

My family wanted iPhones, so I had to get iPhone 5. The WiMAX never really was consistent enough to use fully. LTE has much better ping time. Two bars. If I open the glass window, 4 bars and ridiculous speeds that embarrass my home internet. iOS doesn't get as blotted as android does over time, like a windows pc. It's like on the iPhone, the response to a click is always the same, the UI doesn't get bogged down. I can have the iPhone in my pocket and it is so small and light I don't even know its there. I love the new jaw dropping features on android and the evo 3d is awesome hardware that I will not be getting rid of, but the iPhone is just a little more reliable and polished in usage.

I was going to get the HTC Evo 4G LTE and trigger a 2-year contract renewal. But frankly, I really didn't want to make that commitment with Sprint again. Then I learned about the MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) called Ting, which operates on the Sprint network. Significant savings and you're not locked into any contract. Plus, no $10/mo surcharge for 3G/4G phones. And, you can bring your own phone if it falls within their list. The Evo 3D does. I had a chance to test out the Evo 3D against the Evo 4G and the Evo LTE. Yeah, the LTE is faster and lighter, but not by enormous leaps and bounds. I was able to get a very good condition one for less than $90 shipped. After rooting it and doing some tweaks, I have to say it's a terrific phone. I'll be happy with this for at least a year, until the Evo LTE used phones become available at decent prices.

Hey Brian, which ROM are you running? My complaint w/ the phone at this point is basically the clumsiness of the official ICS ROM and the short battery life.

It (and all jellybean roms for 3vo are aosp roms. You have to flash them knowing they are. Work in progress and things are broken. Imo, that's part of the fun and totally worth it

I'm still happy, but that Sony Xperia Z is looking very tempting...

If only there was a decent 3D camera I could buy to take care of that side of things, I love taking 3D pics and vids.

Can someone PLEASE help me... Like so many people out there I'm addicted to Angry Birds. And for the last few months since I've updated the OS, I keep getting these error messages when I update any version of Angry Birds. I have each of the apps set for automatic updates, so after the file downloads, it'll say "Package File Invalid", and nothing else will happen. I end up deteting the error message, and all of my angry bird versions will stay the same.

Is it Rovio's files, or is it something on my 3DVO that's preventing the updates? Because all of my other apps update as they normally would.

Have you tried manually updated and not letting it update on its own?

Also try clearing cache/data of the market as well.

I'm typing this post via my EVO 3D.

I'm @ the corner of happy & healthy.

I won't upgrade until Sprint turn on 4G LTE in New York City. And frankly, they don't have a specific date to when this will happen. I'm guessing sometime in the Summer. :-(
