HTC Evo V (Realistic Review)
dorian827 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Hello everyone my name is Dorian and today I will share and rate my review for the HTC Evo V.
I loved the phones features but its not worth a purchase due to poor battery life.
• 4G speeds which I never/cant be used based on my location in WI.
• The cameras are superb front and rear. (Fun features)
• 3D feature is excellent but unable to share 3D feature with others with a 2D phone. (Pointless)
• Excellent speed memory capabilities handles apps and browsing with mere ease.
• Has excellent volume sound rich, crisp, clear and loud
• Display is rich and full of colors but beware (Very poor on battery)
Purchased the phone 07/26/12 and returning 7/28/12. I am returning my HTC EVO V due to these reasons. This device has the poorest battery life I have ever gotten from any android device in my entire electronic collection. This phone I would not suggest for ANYONE on the go even using MINIMAL of features, apps and widgets. I am using no widgets and have very basic apps. The phone has to be experienced to understand the magnitude of frustration and anger that the battery can cause. Constantly on the charger pointless to be a mobile device for VERY short times of battery.
If you love battery life, DO NOT PURCHASE this phone.

My dream phone
Waffleny has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
Just amazing, no other words to describe it. Every single thing about it astonishes me, and I LOVE proving iPhone owners their phone is overpriced and stupid :) not to mention that it is now available on Virgin Mobile with ICS on board standard

I really think this phone is nice. Its screen is pretty good especially in the dark. camera quality is extremley nice and i enjoyed the video quality as well. Battery life isnt the best but its still ok to me (If u put it in airplane mode when not using data its battery life dramatically improves). reception is good plus 4g is really fast! phone calls come in clear and the EVO is pretty durable(dropped it face first a few times and not even a scratch).All in all its one of the best phones sprint has...
Best phone on the market
Cwebb has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
Its looks gorgeous, it has a brillant screen in 2d and 3d that's second to none at the moment. Sense makes this phone even better, and the build quality is amazing, even though a little bit thick and heavy, but you want that in a premium phone. The design is great also. The 3d may not be for everyone, but I personally like it. But the good thing to know is that it's the best smartphone on the market bar none, even without the 3d that makes it even better

I think that the biggest turn off was the screen, the colors were dull and the screen wasn't bright at all, it was difficult viewing the phone in the sunlight. I also hated the look of the phone (something I think HTC still needs to improve on) as well as it's bulky form! I'd easily take the Galaxy S II over the Evo 3D.

This phone is great and the 3D its amazing sense 3.0 is great love it.Too bad no update to android 2.3.4 this phone should of come preloaded with it.The best phone on the market this year!!!Htc did a great job on this phone.The problem only with the phone is poor signal and the other is lack of 4G coverage which I blame Sprint.

Overall A GREAT PHONE SICK SPECS
SuperAndroidEvo has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
This phone has TONS of potential. I have rooted the device & I am waiting for the ROMS to come out of the bakery! The only weakness is the 2D camera speed. It takes great pictures when everyone or thing is perfectly still. The speed of the camera is slow so it makes the pictures blurry if there is any slight movement. The 3D camera is something that is just so cool. I love that I can take 3D pictures & others can't. People all love & think my phone is sick because of the 3D!

I've had this phone for about a month now and I love it! The battery life is amazing. It lasts through the whole day with me and if you're not a heavy phone user the battery only needs to be charged every 2-3 days. With heavy usage it's lasted me around 9.5 hours! I highly recommend this phone! (Review continues down on my individual ratings)

Best phone I've owned, period. I've had quite a few Android phones the last few years, yes I have a problem. But this phone is just fantastic. It's the first one that I finally thought was as smooth and lag free like an iPhone, and this one does it while having things to customize unlike the iPhone. I would highly recommend this phone.

I jumped on board to Sprint from AT&T and got the Evo 3D! All I can say is WOW! This device is truly amazing! In my opinion, it is the best device that is out right now and I am saying this after using many devices including the Motorola Atrix, HTC Sensation, Samsung Galaxy S 4G, etc. It beats all of them by far...!!!
Not too Shabby
ruckus09 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
I had this phone last year, and I used to love it... the keyboard is AMAZING!!! I used to be able to text in class without having to look and i had like a 95% success rate. Autotext was a BOSS... (smh horrible student I know lol but I graduated no thanks to the PHONE!! LOL) also, this phone fell out of my pocket 2x and I didnt realize it... the first time the glass was cracked to hell but definitely still workable. The second time (that night) it fell out of my pocket again and I didnt realize it. I ran out into the street and got there just in time to see a BUS RUN OVER IT!!! put the battery back in.. and yea... this time it was done for... My sister caught her self trying to be funny and called it and apparently the call went through... So I say this phone was a boss

Love and hate relationship
Kristen has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
I have had this phone for a long time, and have gone through 1 due to accidentally busting my screen. I love it but sometime there are moments where I wish I had a different phone. I am soon upgrading to the new HTC One M8, I have heard great reviews from it, not to mention GREAT battery life, which is exactly what I need!

EVO still got it!
timofeev has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
The main reason why I wanted to leave this review is because I want to disagree with all those people, who gave a poor rating to this phone. HTC EVO is sick! Anyone whom I showed this phone to was amazed - this is all-you-can-do phone. Just got it this fall. Previously I had Samsung Intercept, well that phone was a disaster!!! HTC EVO is a well built phone! 2 year's passed and it is still one of the most competitive phones out there! Great display! Great multitasking! I am running 3 languages on this phone - English, Russian, and German! Face detection as your screen lock! Sick - no other phone for VM got it, or am I wrong? I got no clue what you could be doing all day to drain the battery! I am an undergrad and use my phone in am to play music on my way to uni, then use it to check my gmail every hour or so, blackboard, txting and facebook, play games during lunch, Skype my parents abroad and my battery lasts me till about 5 pm when I plug it in the car.... So don't run your display on full brightness and you will be fine! Never lagged! If you can't get service, get a different provider! Not the phones fault that you live underground or on an island.... You can run most games on this device! Although the camera is only 5MP, you get great 3D images. You can stream your videos via microHDMI! I am curious to see if I can play 3D movies via microHDMI to my TV....Great to use as a flashlight too - got dual LED! Nothing about this phone must make you regret the purchase! I can say...
Evo V 4G
atomri9008 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
I've had this phone for over a year now on Virgin Mobile. A solution to short battery life is to buy a third party battery (i use a 1900 mah anker battery) which lasts 2 to 3 hours longer than the stock battery on average. The camera has a considerable amount of shutter lag. After rooting, it seems like the 4.1 stock camera app works best (compared to the htc sense camera and 4.2 stock camera). Cell signal/reception is pretty bad, rarely getting more than 3 or 4 bars. Its got a decent processor, but by no means a speed demon. Quadrant scores around 2600 and antutu around 5000, overclockable to 1.7 ghz stable to get scores of about 3000 and 7000 respectively. The gpu is not a strong suit of this phone. It could have been just my phone, but the metal band around the left edge of my phone came loose after about 6 months and i had to super glue it back in place. Unlike samsung phones, this feels solid in the hand with a nice weight, although a bit thick for my preference at about 12mm thick. For a phone thats two years old, this runs remarkably well. 3D is mostly a gimmick as there is only a little content that actually takes advantage of the screen. Videos and pictures taken in 3D look great though.
Great HTC Phone
vintral88 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I got this phone and it's the best phone iv'e had. I've had the Motorola Droid, HTC Wildfire, LG Optimus v, and a Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 (I know it's not a phone). The 3D quality is great considering that there are only a couple of companies even willing to make a 3D phone. Have not had any problem's so far which is good. The thing about using the 3D is that it drains the battery, but I assume using the 3D will take a portion of your battery. The cameras are great, the phone is fast when browsing the web, the dedicated camera button and 3D toggle was a good feature to add, and the screen quality is great for it being a qHD display. I so wiah that there were more notification light colors like blue because I'm color-blind and when I see my notification light i can't tell if it is red or yellow or green. I also like the weight of the phone, it makes it feel of higher quality in my opinion along with the metal bezel.
Love it but hate it.

Love the phone and its features compared to my previous phone. However I've had the phone since May 1st and in four months, I'm going onto phone #4. Glitchy software and the refurbished one was screwed up when I got it (phone #3).
Not what i was expecting...
Italia1012 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I picked this phone up on virgin mobile and I only had it for 2 days... battery life was poor, the phone kept randomly restarting... probably because it couldn't handle the 4G network... And some other minor problems... I asked best buy if anyone had similar problems.. but they said they didn't here any... Maybe the one i got was a dud... And also, Sprint were to lazy to take there branding off of the new ones lol... Overall im just really not sure if the phone i had was defective, or this happens on all of these...
Finally a TRUE high end device on pre-paid.

The reviews so far I think have been for other carriers not Virgin so this is the first one.
I just recently left Cricket to move over to Virgin Mobile simply for a better phone and 4G service. I bought the phone and ported my number over from Cricket. If you do the same....be patient....its not easy and took about 24 hrs. Now...about the phone.
Taking it out of the box I knew right away that this was a very nice phone. Its got weight to it and has rubberized feel. Gorilla glass shines with the No Glasses needed 4.4" qHD 3D display. Yes it is Gorilla Glass. Even says so on Cornings website. Mind you...this is the SAME phone that was sold by Sprint last year. In fact its not even rebranded. Mine says Spint on the front.
This phone is FAST with its 1.2 Ghz Snapdragon cpu pushing Android 4.0.2 along with HTC sense. Opening apps on this phone is quick and responsive and no lag what-so-ever. The display is very crisp and bright. Has a 5 MP dual camera with flash and front facing 1.3 for video chats. They work great and the 3D pics and video is a neat little bonus with the phone. You can even watch 3D movies on it. Too much of it does bother your eyes though. The internet is very quick and loads pages with straining.
This phone does take a little bit to set it up but thats a good thing with TONS of options and settings. Call quility has been good and texting on it is very easy. The only downfall is the battery. It doesnt last very long but I am still tweaking...

I've had this phone for maybe about 9months and ive loved it hated it cherisihed it and destroyed it. I like the design the software isnt to bad very strudy design. But They could have done better. I think the camera could be so much better for Regular Pics i forget i even have 3D. And it should have Gorilla Glass.

worst sprint phone EVER
lynn.c10 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
My HTC Evo 3D replaced my old and worn 4G EVO. At first, it was exactly what i was looking for... a phone with a longer battery life. i was extremley pleased with my new for the first couple of weeks been then the problems started to arise. The phone kept giving me these weird messages system faild and all kinds of weird things. i couldnt txt, couldnt take pictures, couldnt look at my contacts and couldnt use ANY program or app on my phone!!! All i could do was answer phone calls. i must say, i have never been more disappointed in my LIFE. This has occured 4 times in the past year that ive owned this device. but last friday i experienced a problem that sent me over the edge, and nearly drove me mad... The phone began to randomly call people txt people and start applications on its own. i was terrified. when i troed to send txt messages my letter A, L T and my ?,! and & would not function properly. then the phone began to freeze and do a number of other displeasing functions. Today i went to sprint and orderd my Motorola PHOTON 4G. i didnt care what i had to do to get rid of that dissapointing device.to any one who is looking ino this phone i would highly encourage you to think twice about your decision. i promise you will be disappointed and be left unhappy. Although the hone itself is quite attractive dont let its looks deceive you.

Sorry guys...I am on another planet then most of you. This phone is from HELL!!!
GoBruins has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I had this phone for 30 days..it magically, without my involvement, rebooted and placed calls. I did a hard reset. ok for about 10 days...then I had no text messaging capabilities. Hard reset again (both times at the Sprint store). The next day when my battery ran out after 5 or so hours and shut down, I no longer had phone call capabilities. Sprint Android Tech rep, told me to go by a Motorola Photon. That the HTC 4G was their highest call volume phone followed by the EVO 3D in regards to the # of problems. I was told that even though the Photon was only a week old, that she had received not one call on the phone yet....that says alot...she said. I traded my EVO 3D in for the Photon and have been happy every since. I have no cool 3D but I have a kickstand and a phone that works and what is also cool is that I do not have to put up with that Construction Design flaw of the external speaker on the EVO 3D. It is different than the 4G in that there is no cavity for the sound to from. The 3D has to resonate around the camara lens and flash system thus producing a "tinny" and baffled sound....nothing can be done to fix this issue!
The HotSpot was never consistant.....
This is 2011 and the camara is only a 5 mega pixel...hmmm

Goodbye Apple, my iphone and ATT really started to let me down. Picked this up as it's one of the few flagship phones out that's somewhat future proof. Was worried about sprint's service and both sprint and the evo 3d have been great.
Phone is so much better than my iphone. Was a little worried about it being a little buggy but so far has worked smoother than my iphone. I use it throughout the day to conduct research on the internet, sync email to my exchange server, navigate to clients and ocasionally listen to music. As I run my business off it it stays fairly busy. Battery easily lasts all day which is more than I can say for my iphone.
Only con is sprints data needs to be faster in my area as they don't offer much of any 4G.
