It did take some time, but the HTC Evo 3D has finally made it. It is laced with curious switches and circular buttons, used for the camera shutters which makes the phone look very retro. If you are the one for large phones then, believe me, my friend, you are going to love the bulk as well as the textured plastic back case, which provides the phone with a solidity that one can’t expect from the top end smartphones. Although I am not the one for the circular capacitive home, back, menu and search buttons below the screen, nevertheless, this is a fantastic piece of technology, with all the ports at the right places.
I am totally in love with HTC Sensation’s screen; its 4.3-inch display is amazingly sharp at 960 by 540 resolution. It’s even pleasant as well as bright, and it has an excellent touch response.
HTC Evo 3D
What I didn’t like is the color reproduction. When it comes to that, there is nothing that can beat Samsung’s Super AMOLED Plus tech. Unfortunately, though, the absence of 3D games make it the HTC Evo 3D’s most disappointing feature. So all one is left with to do in 3D is watch your one’s clips over and over again and also I couldn’t watch 3D YouTube videos as was the case with the LG Optimus 3D handset.
Rest be assured, the HTC Evo 3D is as handy as an Android smartphone gets. HTC has modified Google’s operating system for smartphones, and it has also made a few social networking twists so that facebook or twitter is just a click away. It’s even added some of its apps, for instance, the HTC Locations so that you can use GPS minus a 3G connection, although Android itself has apps for all sorts of occasions. HTC’s keyboard is not as quick and easy to use as is Google’s native one for Android; fortunately, you can download it. So that’s not much of a problem.
The good news is that HTC has once again included in its features the movie rental service, HTC Watch that goes all the way to compete with iTunes on the iPhone. So as simple as it sounds for some quid, one can easily watch all the recent Hollywood flicks and TV series too. Not just that it’s handy, easy to use and you are going to love it, there is no doubt about that.
The Battery life
The HTC Evo 3D makes use of a slightly bigger battery than what the Sensation uses, with a 1730mAh rather than 1500mAh cell keeping things running for whole twenty-four hours with the brightness up and about and the connections blazing. For sure, as with the Sensation and HTC Incredible S, HTC also has dramatically reduced standby drain.
So as far as the HTC Evo 3D goes, we can say all is well with it.
