3D pictures why can't send to other 3d devices

I was wondering why we can't send 3d pictures we take to other 3d devices. Thought it was an option to do this? But when I send it, it converts to 2d automatically?? Even when I know the other person I'm sending the photo to has a 3D evo also.

3D backgrounds

Does anyone know where I can download cool 3D backgrounds? Like where we as users submit them? The market doesn't have much yet.

Batter life??

I've had it since the release date, I've turned off background notifications and all auto sync, yet I still only get about 5-6 hours... The phonescoop review said they got about 13 hours... How??? I even have juicedefender ultimate still no luck... anybody have any suggestions??????
I actually leave everything on (including WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, All my notifications), and with moderate-heavy usage, I get about 12 hours of battery life.

Did you try and calibrate your battery? I didn't do so, but it might help.

First Weekend Sales??

Has anyone seen the sales numbers for this weekend? Did sales live up to the hype?
I haven't seen any actual sales numbers, though my store recieved 10 units, 5 of which were preorders reserved for customers. We still have 3 unsold units left. It is not for any lack of advertising, but it might have something to do with the huge pri...

wheres the hdmi output?

I've seen video footage of this phone and in none of them have I seen a kickstand OR an hdmi output!

You have to to either...

1- Buy an MHL compatible cable where one is micro-USB and the other end is HDMI.

2- Buy an MHL adaptor that has HDMI, and a micro-USB port as well.

This Phone

Is amazingly fast I have a store demo of it, the 3D is rather lackluster but if that was the selling point for you on this phone then you shouldn't get it.
I don't think anyone is buying this phone for the 3D its just and added bonus.

Evo 3d

i've had it for 3 days now and my icons keep re-seting. took about a day to get the google voice working properly. Not thrilled about the 3d but didn't buy it for that feature. It is faster.
I didn't buy it for the 3D either, but I absolutely love that feature.

It's entertaining showing the 3D to other people, and to actually take 3D pics as well. Once I realize I'm in a 3D surrounding where it might show up well on my phone, I'll go a...

HDMI OUT MIRRORING

Does this fully mirror everything done on the phone via HDMI out? I'd love to watch Netflix...
If not natively, I'm sure one of the already existing apps for the Evo4g that does the same thing will be modified pretty quickly for it.
There is not a hdmi out on the phone. I was surprised that's the case but it is what it is.

A screencolor question...

I just purchased my EVO 3D on opening day. I love this phone as i've purchased the Hero & 4G and enjoyed my experience on those models. My question is, does anyone notice a difference in their screencolor being an off-white color? The reason I'm saying this is because i chose to keep my Hero & 4G phones and compared the screencolor to my 3D. Both my Hero & 4G have a crisp sharp white color whereas my 3D screencolor is an off-white. I'm bringing my unit to the store to compare with their display model and other employee models to see if it's just my model. If there's no difference on the other models, I'll at least know it wasn't a flaw with mine. But i was wondering if anyone else had their previous models to compare with their 3D? Btw, my d...

I don't own the phone yet, but If I had to guess.. I would put my money on your off-white color screen having something to do with the 3D feature of the phone. Good Luck!

No complaints with mine

I am now on day 3 of using my Evo3D and have yet to experience any of the problems noted in the article. Call quality has been very clear, and when compared side by side with my Evo4G now on a seperate line of my account I saw no difference in signal strength or connection speeds.

If there was a software or hardware issue, it must have been solved.

Wow another bad review

Engadget wasn't that thrilled either and also complained about the bad battery life. 3D is a gimmick anyway. Nobody wants it. Not even on their TVs. It's stupid and gives people headaches

http://www.engadget.com/2011/06/15/htc-evo-3d-review/ »
I gave the EVO 3D plenty of credit where it was warranted.

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!

Read the review on phonearena, they said the call quality and data speed was excellent. They reviewed the handset in Philadelphia where they had great coverage for 3G and 4G.

Call Quality/ 3G & 4G Issues

I believe the phones we'll all received will have these issues corrected & there will be an update days after It's released...

Looking at the glass half full... Very Happy

Question for Eric.

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...

Just so you know he clearly said that he gets only one bar in NJ where he lives and sprint is hardly ever any good there. I dont think that is a fair review. I live in portland, or where we are a tester city and get everytyhing first. My 4g is always ...

I don't have an EVO 4G on hand to do a direct comparison.

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.
