The HTC EVO 3D is a lot of fun, but I’m not sure that all of the tradeoffs are worth it unless you’re more interested in the 3D camera than anything else. It’s fairly heavy, and the voice quality is somewhat disappointing. And I know it’s somewhat nitpicky, but the pattern on the back of the phone really is uncomfortable to hold for long periods.

HTC EVO 3DHaving said that, it’s great fun to have a 3D camera in your pocket, and I can imagine that anyone who has a 3D TV and wants to show off their cool photos will have a lot of fun with it. If you’re not that interested in the 3D camera or 3D games, you might want to look at some other phones, because there’s probably a better match for you.


  • Excellent performance

  • Good sound quality
  • 3D gaming is a lot of fun!
  • Very good battery life
  • 3D camera works well and is a lot of fun


  • Relatively heavy
  • Sometimes gets warm in your pocket
  • Highly textured back uncomfortable
  • Voice quality isn’t horrible, or even particularly bad, but it’s not as good as I expect from HTC
