HTC Evo 3D Comes Alive! Review


There is a new trend of 3D Smart’s developing in the market and how would HTC remain silent on anything related even remotely to Android. After LG’s Optimus 3D, HTC is only the 2nd handset maker to release a 3D smartphone. Lets check it out

HTC Evo 3D Quick specs

Monstrous 4.3″ 3D LCD Capacitive touchscreen with a res of 540*960

1 GB internal storage,1GB RAM


1.2 GHZ Dual core processor with an Adreno 220 GPU

A 5MP rear snapper,1.3 MP front facing

Qualcomm MSM8660 Chipset

Android V2.3 (Gingerbread)


DIVX/XVID support out of the box


Now when I say or hear the name of HTC the first thing that comes to my mind is quality and to be honest poor battery backup.No,honestly I have personally faced many dilemmas on  HTC’s Windows Phone based devices which barely gave me backup of about 2.5 hours after about 5 months of usage. I know the problem got solved  for all Android devices but like the saying suggests “First impression is the last impression”.

Anyways speaking of hardware HTC have not left a single nail to be hammered, almost everything is in its place where it should be. I think the GPU which is a ADRENO 220 could have been a tad better given the Dual-core processor but nothing is perfect is it. Running on a 1.2Ghz Dual-core the performance can’t be anything less than top-notch and tasks are bound to be quicker. Now the front is completely occupied by a magnificent and robust 4.3″ capacitive touch screen  below which is a traditional set of four Android buttons. The screen resolution is pretty good but not at par at 540×960 pixels.



On the software front HTC has releases EVO 3D with latest Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).But the selling point for HTC has never been the latest version,its been the latest version wrapped up in SENSE UI. The biggest and the most toughest UI ported or to beat in terms of simplicity, authenticity, and class. There were no signs of lag at all which is unsurprisingly given to the hardware that EVO 3D has. One of the things that i haven’t been seeing a lot lately is the XVID/DIVX support out of the box.Thats +1 for HTC from me.Its a feature that can prevent a lot of hassle for those with tons of Movie collections to be viewed. One more pretty decent feature is SRS virtual surround sound (via wired headphones)  giving you 3D surround sound effect.


Connectivity is not a problem in these days smartphone and EVO 3D is no exception.It has all the basic connectivity features like WiFi,Bluetooth,HSUPA,HSDPA,EDGE and last but the most important a micro USB 2.0 port.It also features a TV-Out to make your tv come alive with 3d.


HTC have only given a 5MP snapper at the rear which may just feel a little odd given the 8MP snapper in the same range but as i said nothing is perfect.Their is  a front 1.3 MP camera as well mostly for video calling and chat but also for occasional admiration of yourself.



Overall HTC have put a lot of thought in designing this 3d smarty and it shows. A great processor and some decent features, overall HTC  branding ensures that this one not gonna be light on your pocket but is it worth it only time will tell as there are not much 3D tests available yet.As of now it feels a nice package with a few Question marks on the GPU and the 5MP snapper. Other than that its a product which definitely must be taken in consideration. CHAOS will reign if Samsung follow-up with their own 3D device. Peace out
