Has anybody used this phone?

How is it?

Are the 3D photography / videography capabilities really what HTC makes them out to be?

I have this phone. It's a solid, fast, very capable phone. The 3d features photography/video are useless to me. I don't have any other 3d device and the image quality in 3d mode is bad imo. The 3d screen is neat for watching 3d youtube videos and 3d games.

It's an outdated phone now. If I were purchasing a new phone, I'd put my money on something more modern.

This.

I also have the phone and rarely use the 3D features. It's a big gimmick.

Wait a few weeks and get the new 4g LTE EVO.

But will the EVO 3D be cheaper? Perhaps used / refurbished? Will the next phone have 3D capabilities?

I doubt it. You'll be hard pressed to find someone that actually cares about it. It's just a gimmick that's awesome long enough for you to buy the phone, then you never really use it again.

I'll be making my preorder of the Evo 4G LTE on Sprint tomorrow, as it is coming out on the 18th. My current Evo is on its last legs, and this will be a major upgrade.

The evo 3d is being rereleased on prepaids like virgin as the evo v, with 4G wimax. If you want to avoid a contract, look into this one. If you need the latest and greatest, look elsewhere.

I have the EVO 3D, The EVO 3D is a great phone, however like what was mentioned earlier, the 3D isn't used. Not because it's not good, but it's somewhat on an island now, meaning there aren't many 3D apps, or other 3D devices that support it (like monitors, TVs, etc.). I believe it simply was just ahead of it's time and will be back very strong once the overall TV,Mobile, and computer market makes it mainstream.

My biggest beef with the HTV EVO is battery life is terrible. Maybe I can get a day off the stock battery, and I have to buy a big fat extended battery to make it usable.

I'm looking forward to the EVO LTE only because (and according to Sprint) when you're in LTE mode I should see 7mb/s-15mb/s download, which beats the 1mb-3mb/s on average I get from 4g (which is still good for most uses btw).

The batery in the EVO LTE still seems to be a 2000mah which ain't that good for all the horse power under the hood, and that bad thing is you can't swap it out

yeah, the 3D aspect is basically a gimmick but it's kind of fun to play around with. it's a good, fast phone but i had some issues with mine shutting down and going into an endless boot-up loop to the point where i had to take it back and demand a new one. not sure how common a problem it is, but i have seen others with this same issue on other forums.
