HTC EVO against EVO 3D

By: t-marco June 9th, 2011


When Sprint launched the HTC EVO 4G last summer, the company instantly became the provider of one of the most desirable Android phones. Suddenly, every other phone was compared to the EVO 4G and most of those other phones didn’t look good by comparison. The calendar pages keep flipping and the EVO 4G is still a great phone, but it is no longer the most powerful Android phone.

Now that the HTC EVO 3D has been officially outed by Sprint, let’s see how it stacks up against the current leader of the pack, the EVO 4G. In almost every area that matters, the EVO 3D is a serious upgrade to the EVO 4G. The removal of the kickstand is unfortunate, though I guess the dedicated camera button is supposed to make up for it. It’s too bad we can’t have both. Or maybe we’re just getting greedy since we’re already getting two cameras, two LED flashes, two cores in the CPU, and two HD video recording formats.

    So if the EVO has 802.11 b/g/n Why cant we get the N support working?

    Evo 4G got the 2.3 gingerbread update, no?

    So if I was to take regular pics with the Evo 3D, I will be stuck with 5MP vs the year-old phone’s 8MP? Why can’t they give this thing two 8MP cameras?

    #1. You forgot that the

    EVO 3D has a 45nm CPU
    EVO 4G has a 65nm CPU (junk)

    #2. EVO 3D is LTE ready and LTE radios when Sprint goes LTE EVO 3D is there.

    whenever phone specs are listed in a review like this they are reviewed by the hardware and software that they had when they launched…don’t be an idiot.

    Forgive me if I’m wrong, but didn’t the EVO 4G launch with 2.1? So, that would still be incorrect…

    Oh well I’ ll be stuck with this HTC EVO 4g for a minute because I just got it. But what pissed me off is if I could’be had a better all around phone and, I was up for a full upgrade they should have told me. Because I pay $200.00 a month for 3 phone”s . Man people need to take care of people who have been with them for year’s . And has never been late with payment’s. Imagine this shit .
