GSM European EVO 3D

The European version of the HTC EVO 3D has suddenly appeared at a number of UK retailers, following recent delays which resulted in the phone being unceremoniously dumped by Vodafone UK a few weeks ago. With no network-subsidized option available just yet, the only way to get hold of HTC's stereoscopic monster right now is by forking out for the SIM-free version, which retails at a slightly eye-watering £500 (~$815). However, that gets you a potent mix of bleeding-edge smartphone technologies, including a 3D qHD (960x540) display, a 3D recording setup, a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU and 1GB of RAM, not to mention HTC's latest Sense 3.0.

If you're tempted, be sure to check out our review of the US version, which launched on Sprint a couple of months ago. Stay tuned to AC for full write-up of the European model in the next week or so.

The one thing I like more about the European version is the gold trim around the cameras instead of the red trim on the US version. Love my Evo 3D, but jealous of the Europeans' version.

I finally got to play with one the other day at a Rogers store. I was super impressed with how fast and smooth the phone was. The rotating home screen effect was buttery smooth and instant, no hesitation. It's a little thick but overall feel and design was very nice.

The 3D looked horrible. I do not understand why hTc thought this would be a good idea. I also looked at the LG Optimus 3D and that looked like sh*t too. ( I do have trouble with 3D anyway, I won't watch 3D movies and passed on a 3D TV because it gave me a headache.)

At least the dual cameras will draw the attention of other people and when you show them the smooth UI they will probably ask what knid of iPhone it is. :P

I actually think the 3D is cool. Once you find your personal sweet spot, you're good to go. I don't use it much, and when I do, its not for long periods of time. Its just a cool feature to have

I wish our European friends well with there verison of the EVO 3D because out here in the US we are rocking it hard very hard. I

I wish our European friends well with there verison of the EVO 3D because out here in the US we are rocking it hard very hard. I have over 90 applications on my EVO 3D and 25 top games ROCKING IT TOTALLY HARD on this dualcore monster. And the best part is I get 16 to 23hrs of battery life every day on my EVO 3d and it's all stock...Just knowing I can root it and overclock it to 1.5 or 1.8 Ghz down the road will be a great treat because as of today the OS gingerbread is not allowing us to really enjoy how great this device really is because it is only working on one core at 1.2 Ghz. When ICE CREAM COMES OUT it will be optimized for dualcore/quadcore devices and boy WATCH how great the EVO 3D WILL BE THEN...HTC knew exactly what they were doing when they created this evo brand and anyone who does not have THIS DEVICE IS SIMPLY UNAWARE OF THE GREATNESS OF THE BRAND. People have not seen anything yet wait till the EVO BRAND FOR 2012..
