Review: HTC EVO 3D
Quite honestly, I had a lot of fun shooting 3D images and 3D video. It's a neat medium for capturing events and images, and is pleasing to fool around with (even if it gives you a headache).
My major problem with 3D is not the content, but the sharing of it.
For example, the 3D images I shot on the EVO 3D could only be viewed on the EVO 3D itself, which has the right screen technology. The photos can only be viewed by one person at a time, because of the angle and distance issue. This makes sharing very hard. Essentially, your option is to constantly hand the device over to someone else so they can see the images/video. I can't share any of the 3D images/video with you here in our review, which is extremely annoying.

Of course, if you have a 3D television, you can share 3D content created on the EVO 3D on the TV. I don't have one (and my guess is you don't, either). Since most PCs, photo-sharing services, and web sites and displays in general don't support 3D content yet, you can't really do anything with the 3D images except enjoy them for yourself on the phone.
The only option is to share via YouTube's 3D channel. That, however, requires glasses in order to view the 3D content. Since the EVO 3D itself allows for 3D viewing without glasses, you'll have to go out and purchase a separate pair yourself simply to share your videos on YouTube away from the EVO 3D. That's not a great solution.
Until 3D-capable displays are more widely available, (and cheaper,) 3D content creation will continue to be a niche capability, regardless of how much fun it is and how good the results are.
