The HTC EVO 3D is a misleading title in that most typical smartphone buyers justifications for purchasing the 3D won't actually be for the 3D at all. As far as phone gimmicks go the glasses free 3D display and dual rear cameras are about as elaborate a one as have made it stateside thus far and it's managed to land first on a carrier not unfamiliar with trying out new ideas (I'm looking at you Kyocera Echo), and while it works just fine, and, in fact, after getting used to looking at the display at the proper angle actually works moderately better than one might expect, but it's by no means the best feature of the device. What is most notable with this EVO 4G successor, aside from its sturdier construction, is actually it's upgrade to a 4.3 inch qHD display and the addition of a dual core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon CPU and 1GB of RAM. Between the two internal upgrades and the higher resolution display the EVO 3D outclasses it's predecessor in performance and usability especially with regardless to the graphically intensive, battery hogging Sense 3.0 UI. While Sense adds some functionality and a fair bit of polish it's become increasingly less of a feature and more of a burden that bogs down the phone's battery and slows software updates as Android becomes more user friendly and polished on it's own.
