Happily, calling quality is remarkably improved namely because clear and distinctive voices are evident on both ends of the line – with the earpiece outputting a reasonable amount of volume. Switching to the speakerphone, it has a neutral tone with its output, but voices sound rather crackly when it’s placed on the highest volume setting.

Using the handset in high coverage areas in the greater Philadelphia region, the smartphone is able to retain a decent amount of signal strength. However, 4G WiMAX signal strength seems to have problems penetrating building walls since we notice a dramatic drop indoors.

Boasting a higher capacity 1,730 mAh battery over the HTC EVO 4G, we’re able to get a continuous talk time of 7 hours on a full charge. On a day-to-day base, we’re able to get approximately 10 hours of normal usage, which is still less than ideal for power users. Yet, it’s probably a good idea to either invest in a second battery or have a spare charger on hand to juice it up whenever you can.


Alright, there are a ton of things that we absolutely adore about the HTC EVO 3D. For starters, it’s again yet another evolutionary device that sees many improvements with its hardware to keep it going toe-to-toe with some of the elites out on the market right now. Even more, its 3D display isn’t simply a novel thing that some people might get bored with over time – namely due to its flexibility in the gaming department and easy content sharing on the go. From our experience, it works extremely well and goes beyond to give you that perception of depth that’s needed to capture the attention of curious onlookers. Furthermore, we’re certain that people are going to have a lot of fun using this thing to shoot 3D photos and videos on the go.

Indeed memorable, the biggest thing that we love about it is none other than its pricing of course! As we’ve seen Verizon’s line of 4G LTE devices pushing into new boundaries with pricing, the HTC EVO 3D is undeniably considered to be a bargain at $200 – but even more when it’s boasting a dual-core CPU, 4G WiMAX connectivity, and 3D capabilities. When it comes to value, the HTC EVO 3D is unmistakably one device that catapults all the way to the top of our list with its rich set of terrific and extraordinary features that are sure to keep people buzzing.
