So, we’ve been hearing about it and now we finally had the ability to handle an HTC EVO 3D smartphone. Wanna know how it held up? Of course you do, otherwise, why in the heck are you reading this? First, let’s start with the design. You’ll quickly notice that it feels a bit heavy in your hand, but when you consider what’s on the inside, you gotta them a bit of leeway here. Dual cameras are on the back, of course, and the 4.3-inch qHD 3D screen covers a majority of the front panel. But, you don’t want to hear about that…let’s get to the good stuff.
When we started checking out 3D pictures, I was a little stunned. At first, I noticed that the edges did pixilate a bit, but all in all, the quality was good. I knew going in that this was a first generation 3D smartphone, so I was ready to be disappointed. I wasn’t. Additionally, the 3D videos were of a pretty high quality despite needing to find the “event horizon” as I like to call it: the sweet-spot as you may like to call it.
We didn’t get a chance to check out any 3D movies yet, but we should be soon. This is all first impression stuff, so look for a more detailed review once we’ve played with it for a week or so. Ultimately, the first glances look really, really good. The camera captures were satisfying, and the Snapdragon processor pushed us through the experience with a smooth demeanor. In fact, it runs at 1.2 HGz to be exact. There’s no doubt that HTC put quite a bit on the line with this release, and it seems that they’re poised to snatch a nice segment of the market. Remember, you aren’t getting your hands on a 70-inch 3D HD TV here, so be sure that your expectations are realistic.
Our final verdict: we give HTC a head nod for a nice looking unit that should attract quite a few users in the coming months.
