HTC Evo 3D (Sprint)

The Good The HTC Evo 3D improves on its predecessor with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and a larger battery. The Android Gingerbread smartphone also features a glasses-free 3D display and can capture 3D photos and video.

The Bad The smartphone doesn't offer much internal memory, and call quality could be better. The glasses-free 3D display has limited viewing angles and depth of field.

The Bottom Line The 3D features are a fun addition, but it's the HTC Evo 3D's zippy performance and improved battery life that make this Android smartphone one of Sprint's best.

HTC Evo 3D (Sprint)

We think it's pretty fair to say that the HTC Evo 4G was one of the best and most popular Android smartphones of 2010. Now, just a little over a year later, we have its successor, the HTC Evo 3D. Introduced at CTIA 2011, the Evo 3D will be available from Sprint starting June 24 for $199.99 with a two-year contract. The Gingerbread handset ups the ante with a dual-core processor, a larger battery, and a glasses-free 3D display and 3D image and video capture. Adding 3D to the phone runs the risk of being a gimmicky ploy, and after some time playing with the features, we found 3D use was best in small doses. Fortunately, the Evo 3D offers plenty more to keep Sprint customers happy.

Design
The HTC Evo 3D's design is updated but familiar, and anyone upgrading from the Evo 4G should feel right at home with the smartphone. At 5 inches tall by 2.6 inches wide by 0.48 inch thick and 6 ounces, the handset is roughly the same size as its predecessor. It's a good chunk of hardware, to be sure, but the Evo 3D feels narrower, so it's easier to hold and grip. It also has that high-quality construction we've come to expect from HTC, and we like the addition of the textured surface on back.
