HTC EVO 3D Review

This is innovation! HTCkeeps pressing the tough smartphone opponents Apple, Samsung and others in the market with yet another creative model. While the technology experts are researching every single possibility to put the glasses-free 3D viewing experience on TV sets, HTC has put the technology right into the customers pocket with this EVO 3D Android Smartphone. This is truly a work to be appreciated especially for those who have experienced the 3D TV’s with the proprietary 3D glasses that have to sync up with the TV via Bluetooth to be able to provide the three-dimensional view, has to be charged for power as well and not to mention each additional unit costs $150 on average. HTC took the advantage of single user and short viewing distance pattern of the smartphones –very smart move- and brought the glasses-free technology at customers’ disposal.

The phone is provided by Sprint and runs on Sprint’s 4G WiMaxnetwork – great advantage over 3G network speeds. To set the expectations right, I think it’s important to note that not everything is 3D on this phone; the user interface, applications –all of the pre-3D stuff is still 2-Dimensional. Only the applications, games and videos marked as “3D” can be viewed in 3-dimensions, in addition to the images and videos shot by the 5 Megapixel dual cameras on the back of the device that are capable of shooting 3D footage.

As of this posting, the carrier (Sprint) pricing is $ 199 with a 2 year agreement (and retail price is $ 549 without contract).
