NOT A GOOD IDEA
No complaints with mine
If there was a software or hardware issue, it must have been solved.
Wow another bad review
The only real negatives are the battery life, call quality, and signal performance. Almost all other aspects of the device are fantastic, and I said that.
it's the coverage, not the handset!
Call Quality/ 3G & 4G Issues
Looking at the glass half full...
Question for Eric.
I currently own the EVO 4G. I was really thinking of trading up to the 3D. However, I am disappointed with the results of the review section on 4G and 3G connectivity. This has me rethinking my purchase.
My question is, what is the comparison of the 3D and the EVO 4G for signal? Did the tests not prove similar for both? In other words, were the two performed under the exact same tests but with two different outcomes?
Here in upstate NY, my EVO has performed with excellence. I will be basing my purchase according to the results of this comparison.
If the EVO 4G suffered the same degradation in your area during tests, I might assume the EVO 3D will most likely remain equivalent to what the EVO 4G is performing currently i...
However, PCMag *did* do a direct comparison with an EVO 4G and also found that the EVO 3D performs terrible with respect to 3G voice quality and data.
My result was not unique.
I don't think this is a fair review either.
Sounds like Sprint's coverage in his home is spotty already, so any phone won't work as intended in his home.
I went to WV a few months ago, and my T-Mobile phone hardly ever got a signal. Can't blame that on the phone...
