Review: HTC EVO 3D
The EVO 3D can access all of the apps in the Android Market and more. Support for Android is not lacking. If you want apps, they are out there. As with the Sensation 4G, the EVO 3D also has the HTC Hub on board, which is a small app store that lets users peruse HTC-developed applications. Stand-out apps on the EVO 3D include Blockbuster and Spider-Man 3D,
The EVO 3D can connect with mono and stereo headsets with no problems. I didn't encounter any issues when pairing different devices, but sound quality was pretty bad. Phone calls were nearly worthless via Bluetooth, though music through stereo Bluetooth headphones fared better. It also supports the ability to pair with computers and other phones and pass files back and forth.
The EVO 3D has the same awesome clock found on the Sensation 4G. The clock that appears on the lock screen can be customized between a dozen different options. Once unlocked, the Sensation 4G has the standard HTC digital clock plus weather report on the home screen. Good stuff.

Both TeleNav and Google Maps are installed on the EVO 3D out of the box. Both offer voice-guided turn-by-turn directions between points, and can re-route you if you get lost. Google Maps 5 is particularly impressive because it now offers offline use (in case you roam out of network coverage) as well as 3D maps for a limited number of cities. The TeleNav software is very good, and Sprint offers it for free.
The EVO 3D includes Wi-Fi mobile hotspot, allowing up to five other Wi-Fi devices to connect to the internet via Sprint's 3G/4G networks. The software is fairly intuitive and I had no trouble setting up a hotspot and connecting several devices. This feature, however, destroys the battery. In my tests, the EVO 3D went from a full charge to 40% in less than an hour. That's incredibly bad. Only use the mobile hotspot feature when plugged in.
