The HTC Evo 3D is well known as the company’s first foray into the 3D smartphone market, and many are impressed with its abilities as a 3D device. In this article though, I will take a closer look at the other features of the handset as it offers a lot more than just 3D functionality.
The operating system of choice for the HTC Evo 3D is the highly popular Android platform, and in this case it is version 2.3 (aka Gingerbread) which is the latest instalment. Android powered smartphone have enjoys increasing popularity and have now sold more units than the popular iPhone series, thanks largely to many different manufacturers using Android on their handsets. Android is popular for a number of reasons. First of all, it allows users to download additional applications from Android Market, similar to the AppStore by Apple. Secondly, it allows users to customise their handset to a high degree. The latter is enhanced further by the HTC Sense UI, which allows users to assign up to 7 individual homescreens, which can be customised with various apps as well as widgets, themes, skins and colour schemes available from HTC Hub.

Social networking integration is also a major part of the appeal of smartphones, an the HTC Evo 3D excels at this. Not only are there Facebook and Twitter apps, but there is the FriendStream widget which combines the two in a single feed. If you update your status on this widget, it will be posted as a status update on Facebook and as a new Tweet on Twitter, which is a great time saving feature. Social networking integration goes even deeper, with the ability to post photos and videos shot on the 3D camera directly to a variety of social networking sites immediately after they have been taken.
Internet browsing is another strong point of the HTC Evo 3D, thanks to both 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity providing a fast and reliable internet connection based on local coverage. Wi-Fi is the preferred connection method thanks to the faster connection and the fact that it does not use up your data allowance should you have such restrictions on your tariff.
The HTC Evo 3D was one of the first smartphones from HTC to sport a dual-core processor, and the 1.2 GHz chip lends itself to a variety of tasks. The computing power it provides allows powerful app to load and run quickly and smoothly, and allows for seamless multitasking (running two or more apps simultaneously). It also lends itself to certain aspects of the hardware’s performance such as the responsiveness of the touchscreen.
As you can see there is a lot more to the HTC Evo 3D than just its 3D credentials provided by the screen and camera. It offers the complete smartphone experience, and I recommend it to anyone looking for something different to the popular handsets such as the iPhone 4 or HTC Desire HD.
