The EVO 3D runs HTC Sense version 3.0 on top of Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread — exactly like the recently reviewed HTC Sensation 4G. There are some minor differences, but the basics are the same.

First, a word about performance. The EVO 3D has a third-generation dual-core SnapDragon processor with 1.2GHz per core. It is insanely fast. Everything on the phone happens instantaneously. It is, without doubt, the fastest Android handset I've ever used. Given that it is powering 3D features, the added horsepower is indeed welcome. In most other apps and across the entire system, it means outstanding performance.

Is has the same super-cool lock screen with customizable shortcuts for apps such as the phone, camera, and Gmail. It also has seven home screen panels, which are filled up with Sprint's notion of what you might like. Of course, all the home screens are completely customizable.

The main menu and settings menus behave exactly the same on the EVO 3D as they do on the Sensation 4G. The main app menu can be customized heavily depending on user preferences. This includes the addition of folders and other tools to organize applications.
