Is the EVO 3D really worth it?

I plan to leave the HTC Touch Pro 2 really soon. I can't stand it anymore. I was just goign to get the HTC EVO 4G, but since the 3D one came out, is it worth getting the 3D one? I don't really care for the 3D feature. I know it has a faster processor. What do you guys think?

You sound like you're really enjoying the new 3d EVO. Besides the 3D feature, can you tell me what else is better? I really want to make the change today. Can't stand the Windows HTC anymore.

dual core processor, and android is basically all that has to be said. it's faster and more user friendly than windows htc phones. definitely worth it.

Compared to the EVO 4G:
The new version of the SENSE is really nice! It has a dedicated camera button, more memory, more storage, faster processor.

Besides, the odds of EVO 3D getting the next version of the android OS (ice-cream-sandwich) are higher than the EVO 4G. Having said that, I'm pretty sure that the Dev community at xda/ppcg will have it available for the EVO 4G too.

I love the 3vo...Even more after we got s off...In my opinion, it beats the OG Evo in pretty much every way

Re: Is the EVO 3D really worth it?

You'll miss being able to make phone calls that suddenly disconnect if you are coming from the TP2. You'll probably frustrate your friends if you calls are garbled when calling with the EVO 3D.

Not everyone is experiencing it that posts on this site but everyone I know know dealing with an EVO 3D has reported it. I would definitely wait for the Galaxy SII so you can at least trade your EVO 3D in if you want to get a different flagship phone. I was travelling when my 30 days were up so I'm stuck with mine until the SII comes out and then I'll put mine up on craigslist unless HTC comes out with a fix for this phone as it is still pretty new.

Re: Is the EVO 3D really worth it?

I upgraded from the TP2 to the EVO 3D and I'm very happy with my upgrade so far. The only issue I'm having is slow 3G speeds in the area I live in, however I get very good speeds at work. I haven't experienced any dropped calls so far and the voice quality is on par with the TP2. If you have 4G service in your area, you will get 5-7 MB/sec downloads.

I too was skeptical. I came from the evo 4G. I'll give you the same advise I received here: you have 30 days to try it. But be warned, they do charge a $35.00 restocking fee if you return it. (at least in Denver)

Re: Is the EVO 3D really worth it?

I actually tried the Motorola Photon before this one and this is the better phone. The thing that makes this phone is the interface. But honestly, your only choices are between the Photon and this phone; all the other phones are outdated before you even buy them. And don't buy it for the 3D. Seriously, are you really going to be taking 3D photos for a practical reason, or simply for bragging rights?
