I just got my Evo 3D from UPS today I'm in the process of uploading some pictures and I'll link the album here. I plan to include example pics from the phone and pics of the phone itself. I'll keep editing and updating this post as opposed to adding new posts so as to not clutter the thread. Hopefully everyone else can comment on their Evos as they come in! Apologies if I go into too much weird detail. I'll work on formatting this better once I have more info for you Feel free to ask something that hasn't been asked yet. Also, if you think something needs to be added to the main post, let me know. NOTE: HBOOT is still the one from May 20 (S-ON) __________________________________________________________________________________ 3D Effect The 3D is very effective, but it has a pretty narrow sweet spot. It also kind of looks like you're looking at the lenticular cover of a move or something. I understand the concepts are similar, but I thought the screen would look a little smoother. Also, the pictures used for the user interface weren't redrawn, so there is a lot of aliasing when you enter 3D mode. The only reason I think it is so noticeable is because it only affects the horizontal, not the vertical. Exciting news: Side-by-side 3D files DO work. I put a side-by-side .mp4 on the phone. When you play it, it may not be in 3D at first, but you can hit menu and select "Play in 3D." So cool! I can't get the Green Hornet to play on my device. I can view 3D content from anywhere between 6 inches from my face to about an arm's length. The sweet spot is pretty narrow, but there seem to be multiple. My girlfriend was playing with the phone and I could watch it along with her. Also, REALLY bright 3D photos don't work so well with the parallax barrier tech. Seems like the back light bleeds through the PB LCD. Battery So far, I'd estimate the battery lasts about 5.75 hours (2 hours to go from 50% to 15%) under pretty heavy playtime use. I've been looking at Youtube 3D vids, recording my own 3D vids and pics, showing it off to my friends, letting my friends play with it, etc. It's getting more use today than it likely ever will again in one single day. I have had the WiFi on most of that time, though. I'm charging it currently so I can show it off some more. Worth noting: The display is definitely the biggest battery hog. It's averaging 83% of the battery use. Contrast that with the 28% used by my Evo 4G. Top 4 Evo 4G battery usage (currently): Phone Idle (48%) Display (28%) Wifi (9%) Cell Standby (7%) Top 4 Evo 3D battery usage (currently): Display (81%) Wifi (5%) Mail (4%) Cell Standby (4%) First Startup Restarted twice... I hope there's no problem. Activation was super easy on Sprint's website, and once the phone turned on, the process was seamless. The haptic feedback is different from my Evo. I like it It seems smoother. The back of the phone feels awesome. It's a rubbery plastic and feels pretty solid. I don't know why people were calling it cheap. The camera positioning is frustrating though. I know it can't really go anywhere else, but I just feel like I'm gonna smudge up the lens so I don't want to hold it that way, but there isn't enough phone at the bottom to hold it any other way. I'll just be wiping down the cameras every 5 minutes. It boots WAAAYYY faster than my Evo 4G, by the way. It uses Fast Boot, so that explains why it feel like it's instant on. Even from completely off, it's still much faster than my Evo 4G. Pictures See my Picasa Album for pictures. When clicking the share button in the Gallery, you can select to share them as 2D or 3D. It warns you that your recipient may not be capable of viewing them. Screen The screen is amazing. If I get within an inch, I can BARELY start seeing the pixels. SD Card The included 8GB Class 4 SD card is fast! I copied the files (\.data, \Sample 2D Pictures, \Sample 3D Picture, \Sample Music) to my computer at 20 MB/s. It seems faster than my class 10 32 GB Lexar Sense 3.0 The new mail app is worlds better. I love that I have an "All accounts" view now. They color code it on the left so you know from which account they came. I always HATED going through the menu, tapping Accounts, and tapping my other account. So this is nice Messaging app got a facelift. It looks prettier now. It's also quite a lot faster. No more pressing send and waiting forever for the sending dialog box to go away. To be honest, though, I'm assuming they just got rid of that box and do it in the background It's still smart because it makes it feel instant. Signal Strength I know a lot of you are worried about call quality and signal strength. I can't comment on the former, but I don't think you'll have to worry about the latter I've been monitoring the phones in my office, and after about 15 minutes of observing, I'm noticing about 3.25 bars on average from the Evo 3D and only around 1.5 on average from my Evo 4G. Walking through the halls here, the Evo 3D gets 1 or 2 bars where the Evo 4G doesn't even get a signal. The 3G speeds are on par with what I've gotten before.
