Great phone Amazon wireless is the best February 20, 2012
Reviewer: The Tall Man
Well I got the EVO 3d from amazon wireless and it rocks . First off all I have to say Amazon is the best. I got this phone for 1 cent on there sale day. First off the phone is smooth and fast .It also has a good CPU and gpu so it games well. The phone to the ear works very well and the features of the phone are nice. The 3d is pretty cool too. The speaker phone could be a little louder but its tolerable and I got a huge aftermarket 3400mah battery because the stock one doesn't last long . I had a tmobile galaxy s 2 and this phone has the same specs minus the CPU such is just a little slower. Sprints service isn't bad there internet is the only unlimited so went with them. There 4g is a bit shaddy but I guess you can't have it all.
Maybe it's just mine, but........ December 5, 2011
.... I am NOT in love with this phone. I've owned it for a few months now (seemed a good idea before writing a review), and I find myself damning it more than I praise it. So here's my take:
1) The network on this thing is slow (I'm in San Diego, so no 4G here on Sprint, yet). Of course, that's more Sprint's fault, right? Well, yes, but as far as I know, Sprint is the only carrier with this phone, so the two go hand in hand. More frustrating, however, is how I can be standing next to another Sprint customer with a different smartphone (iPhone, Samsung, doesn't matter), and their phone will BLAST through whatever we're searching for. You have no idea how many times I've gone to look something up on my phone only to give up and have someone else look it up instead because my phone is taking so long. In this age of being defined by the phone you have, it's just downright embarrassing. And streaming Pandora or watching a video on Youtube? Ha! Forget it, unless I'm hooked to WiFi.
2) The camera is terrible. EVERY picture I take, no matter what I do, comes out blurry.
3) The phone basically has to live on a charger. It won't last the day otherwise, even if you don't use it. God help you if the stars align in just a way that streaming music actually works (if you call buffering every 30 seconds working) and you decide to listen for a bit, because then the phone won't last more than a couple hours. I have a charger at work, in my car, and at home because that's what it takes to keep this thing moving.
4) The screen occasionally will not accept inputs, with the only remedy being to restart it. Thankfully re-booting it only takes a few seconds, though. But, of course, that leads to other complaints I have.
5) The phone has an annoying bug where every app that I load onto the external SD card loses its icon when I restart the phone. A little digging online taught me how to fix it each time, but it is annoying that it's even necessary. *UPDATE 01/18/2012* This glitch appears to have been fixed with the HTC software update I received this morning.
1) I REALLY like the logic and functionality of the Droid software. Compared to the iPhone, it's extremely liberating. The number of options, settings, and configurations you can adjust to your liking is incredible.
2) Call quality is decent. Not the best, but I have no real complaints.
3) For a lot of the phone's shortcomings, there's a good chance someone has created an app to fix it.
4) Unlike the iPhone, the SD card gives you the ability to expand the storage space and you can also remove the battery.
5) Pretty sturdy construction. No scratches or dents to speak of, and that's just with a cheap gel case and screen protector installed.
A great phone all around. December 3, 2011
This phone has many excellent traits that help to push it ahead of many others in its class. The screen is quite responsive and feels nice, in my opinion, and the phone, with its dual-core processor, is quite snappy. The internet (quality) is good, and I find that Dolphin HD browser works the best on it. The camera is a wonder in itself: I usually don't care about the phone camera, but the 3D in this phone is amazing. If you can get a perfect shot, it truly will make objects pop out at you. The 2D is also quite nice, though, and a 5mp camera seems fine to me. The phone actually seems pretty sturdy to me: it's light, which is good, so when I put on a plastic, durable case it isn't too heavy. Swype works well on this phone and I am not missing my previous physical keyboard.
A few days ago the camera was being weird and had many green vertical lines all over it. I removed the battery and the problem was fixed, however.
When I first got the phone, the battery life was dreadful, but it has since gotten better, surprisingly being at half battery when I go to sleep after a day of surfing, texting, and listening to music while also watching a youtube video or two.
Not many other flaws.
Please dont buy November 22, 2011

BEST 4G phone out there October 18, 2011
Reviewer: CJS316 (Sacramento, CA) -
This phone is FAST! There are no weaknesses! The 3D is gimmicky and is an afterthought. But this phone's speed and versatility truly is remarkable. I'm glad I waited for this phone!
Best phone on the market... even 6 months later. October 13, 2011
Reviewer: P. Erdos (Pittsburgh, PA) -
no kickstand but for 15 bucks I got a case that included this.
Some people don't like Sprint network quality
You have to pay 10 bucks a month more for 4g, even if you don't use it.
Pros: Where to start...
3d video camera!
Dual Core processor!
Dedicated camera button!
Huge, responsive screen!
I had the iphone 4 when it first came out... I was disappointed (webcam only with wifi, didn't like iphone OS, no 4G) and switched to evo 4G and never looked back. The Evo 3d is just an upgraded Evo 4g... Best phone thus far
Excellent Android Phone. Massive iPhone Rival. October 4, 2011
Reviewer: Big Tim
I got the UK version of this phone 2 weeks ago to replace my iPhone 3GS and to be honest I haven't looked back since.
I have been busy creating apps for it and taking advantage of the amazing 3D camera and screen.
I have even converted some home movies into 3D to watch on them too. The 5mp duel camera is very good for any type of pictures and the auto focus and face recognition works a treat.
I totally recommend this phone. Don't be afraid there is another option available that can beat the iPhones.
Excellent Phone, Solid Plan, Delighted Customer October 4, 2011
I'm delighted with my HTC EVO 3D after using it for the past few weeks. I like its build quality, features, and its intuitive functionality.
This is my first smart phone (not counting my work BlackBerry Bold) and its thoroughly met my expectations. I shied away from buying one earlier because I don't do social networking and I had the (mis)perception that the only reason to buy a smart phone was to update your Facebook status or tweet your latest missive. Also, the expensive data plans didn't seem worth it. However, needing a new phone I took the plunge. Also Sprint's unlimited data plan seemed highly appealing (a couple of co-workers swore by it). So, my wife and I went with the family plan and two shiny new phones.
My review is geared at the smart phone newbie. I cross-shopped the Samsung Epic (my wife purchased one), the iPhone, Motorola Droid, Blackberry Torch, and a few others.
+ Antenna strength is impressive. My office is deep inside an old factory and cell reception is poor to non-existent. My Evo--while down to two or one bars--still has reception. Even at no bars, I'm still receiving email, taking calls, and listening to Pandora
+ The 4G network is blazing fast. Its as if I'm on my cable modem at home (or better). I've watched YouTube videos and done video calling (a bit of fun and great for kids--especially if the parents travel). Downloads occur smoothly and quickly.
+ The 3G Sprint network isn't too shabby either. My work BlackBerry is on Verizon's 3G network and it's a snoozing, overweight dog. While its hard to tell if it's the network or phone hardware (or a diabolical combo), my observations are the Evo on Sprint's 3G trounces Verizon's 3G network.
+ The touch screen (something I haven't really used before) works extremely well. It has the right sensitivity and I never hit the wrong button.
+ Typing on the touch screen isn't nearly as unpleasant as I thought. Its easy and the phone has a pleasant little vibration when you hit a key. HTC definitely put together a nice tactile sensation for those of us who prefer a real keyboard.
+ The 3D aspect is a bit of a gimmick. I don't use it on a day-to-day basis. That said, I love taking 3D pictures and it provides endless entertainment for my kids. Also, some of the 3D shots I've taken are really quite cool (and I'm not that skilled).
+ Phone hardware, memory, and display are excellent. It is slightly mind-boggling that the phone's stats would have equaled those of a solid desktop computer from just a few years ago. Start time is quick, apps download smoothly, and updates take place behind-the-scenes. Its an impressive experience.
+ Others have mentioned phone call quality, speaker phone volume, and other traditional "phone" features. My observations are the phone does its basic jobs well.
- I was a bit surprised how heavy the phone was when I first received it. I quickly got use to the weight, but my initial impression was "this phone is a brick!" It weighs more than my wife's Galaxy (even with it ensconced in the protective cocoon). Nonetheless, the phone is slim and easily fits in my pocket.
- Esthetically, the phone doesn't stand out from the pack. It looks like dozens of others on the market. Compared to the Galaxy, it's vanilla. Contrasting it to the iPhone seems unfair. However, what it lacks in exterior styling it repays in interior power; screen display (3D!); and ease-of-use. It's a good phone (great in my opinion) but it doesn't stand out from the crowd.
- I took me a few days to really warm up to the phone. My wife's Samsung seemed a bit nicer with a more appealing design (and it was much lighter). However, after using the phone for a week it really grew on me.
- Battery life is pretty decent, but you do need to be judicious about turning off services (e.g. wireless or 4G) to keep it from seeking a source it can't find. I can stretch the battery life to 8 hours with moderate use (Pandora, a few calls, checking email, surfing the web at lunch) but my Blackberry can go for days when used similarly. It's a minor quibble--I know smart phones are resource intensive--but as this is a newbie review it warrants mentioning.
In summary... A very good phone that I am pleased to have purchased. I generally keep my tech equipment (laptops, tvs, etc.) around longer than the industry might prefer. From reading other reviews, I've seen that HTC does a good job of supporting its hardware and allowing upgrades. Apple's forced obsolescence always turned me off (I recognize it's a good market strategy--at least until other companies peel away their customers). If you are looking for a phone to keep for a few years (or more) this seems like a good bet. I like the Android OS and feel it stacks up well against the iPhone.
Lastly, I don't think you can go wrong ordering from Amazon. I cross-shopped the wireless provider sites and prices clearly favored Amazon. Sprint (at least in the North East) has a strong presence and their prices and plans are far better than AT&T and Verizon. Good luck! Hoped this helped...
EVO 3D September 21, 2011
Reviewer: Dawna Fennewald
I don't have a long review. I got the EVO 3D a month after it came out. I had a Hero the funny thing was my husband had the same phone and his was never a problem but mine must have been a Monday or Friday Hero cause I had nothing but problems. The Sprint guy let me get this 8 months early and I have not looked back. I LOVE this phone. First of all I have to say I cannot physically see 3d I am blind in one eye. I do not mean I can't just not see I actually lost and eye but that is neither here nor there. I can't see 3D. That was not a selling point. The display was awesome. I loved the size and the apps and storage I bought a 16 gig card quick and all is well. Everything I do on this phone is great. I can't use 4G here but when I go to St Louis I can and I notice it sucks the battery. I also notice when I go wireless (and that is VERY easy to do) That saves the battery too. I put it up to my friends IPhone4 and mine wins!!! I do wish we had some Iphone aps but other than that I LOVE this phone!!! I am very glad I got it. I have had not one problem thus far. I did by an otter box for it. Sadly I could only get black black or black but it saved my phone when I dropped in a concrete floor. So I Hardily suggest an otterbox to protect your investment.

great phone September 15, 2011
Reviewer: Just A Guy in SF "justaguyinsf" (San Francisco, CA) -
Great phone. Worth the upgrade from an HTC Evo 4G.
Its faster and doesn't freeze up.
Seems slimmer and sexier also.
Also more internal memory so I don't have to run out of space when installing apps.
Good phone! But... September 14, 2011
Reviewer: M. Edwards
This is a great phone, especially since I saved $150 dollars by purchasing it at amazon wireless. I already have a primary phone from another carrier and I really just got this one for the 3d. My only problem is with the 4g antenna. I live in Las Vegas which has an abundance of 4g towers, yet the signal continuosly fades in and out, which is annoying while streaming movies and music unless you are standing in one place.
GREATEST PHONE EVER..!! August 14, 2011
Reviewer: Dark Shadow (Georgia) -
If you want a superfast, stable, full of neat stuff, this is it, I've had iphones, windows based phones, this is BY FAR the best experience I ever had with a phone, I do agree with the fact that the 3D camera, and 3D display still need some work but come on..!! this is the first 3D phone, technology is new, it's actually a little better than I thought it would be..
Best phone in the market. Hands down. August 1, 2011
Like the title says. The phone is the best. The first EVO was definitely the best phone at the time like an year ago, but this, the new EVO 3D, is unbelievable. It's so fast, it's durable, it's slim. Has a huge screen with great display. AND it's Android so you get a lot more functions and features. Can't beat it.
A great phone for my need July 27, 2011
Reviewer: Yung Yi Fang (Los Angeles, CA USA) -
I've been with traditional phones for over 15 years...and finally had the desire for a smart phone due to enjoy a lot of fun from listening K-pop music stuff!! I'd so glad to have this phone to be my first smartphone ever!!! It could broadcast songs from my favorite music sites...although not all of them, but neither on other phones!! To be a brand new smartphone beginner like me, I can figure out the funtions just after 2 to 3 days, and made my own configuration of the screens and functions. I was confused by buying a HTC 4G or EVO 3D for my need of listening the music, because the sound from 4G is really lounder than 3D... But if I use the earphone or just listen it from my car, I am satisfied with the performance. The other thing and the most important thing to me is the battery life, so I think to go for 3D do giving me a more satisfied one than 4G. I don't expect to bring an extra battery just for a need of a day under regular phone and internet usage while not accessable to the car charger or outputs... =D
Great Battery Life! July 8, 2011
Reviewer: Scott (Orlando, FL USA) -
I have heard from many HTC EVO 4G owners that the battery life was terrible. The background apps would drain the battery even when not in use. So much so that users would need to install so called "app killers" on their phone, and even with those people would experience battery issues. There's nothing worse than having a phone that won't last you all day. I can report that the HTC EVO 3D has no such battery issues. This is due to the fact that the HTC EVO 3D runs the latest Android operating system called Gingerbread. This new operating system manages the power much more efficiently and you will no longer need an "app killer". If you charge the phone overnight the phone will last you all day. I use the phone from 6am to around 5pm and it's usually almost dead when I get home. A typical days use for me is maybe 2 or 3 phone calls a day lasting no more than 15 minutes total, browsing on the internet throughout the day several times and maybe 2 hours of music with headphones on. I always carry a backup battery just in case I need it, I normally don't but it's always good to carry one just in case for emergencies!
For those who have never used a touch screen Android before will be happy to know the phone comes with a guide, so no excuses on upgrading! The touch screen is big and easy to navigate. I use this phone all the time for internet browsing and the built-in internet browser is fast. Although the phone supports 4G, i always keep it disabled as 3G service is more common where I live. Also, leaving 4G enabled on the phone will drain your battery faster as it will continually search for 4G signal. I recommend installing the free Adobe Flash Player from the Android Market to ensure that you can view any webpage you come across. The best part of Sprint is unlimited internet, so no holding back download all the apps and games you want!
The 3D feature is only present when viewing an object in 3D, whether it be a game, movie, or picture and you do not need glasses to view the effect. There's a switch on the side to easily switch between 2D and 3D modes. This only affects the camera features of the phone, the normal operation of the phone is in 2D. The phone comes preloaded with the 3D game Spiderman 3D and the 3D movie The Green Hornet, which can be streamed to your phone anytime you have an internet connection/3G/4G signal.
The phone comes with 808mb of internal memory and an 8gb MicroSD card. So there's pleanty of space for installing apps or using the phone as an ipod. There is a built in headphone jack that works great with my sony earbuds. Just make sure to push the headphones in all the way. I have a bunch of mp3's on my phone that i transfered from my pc using the included usb data cable. If you want to create your own ringtones that's easy. Just download a free ringtone app from the android market, which will allow you to select a segment on one of your mp3's to use as a ringtone. no more paying for ringtones of your favorite songs! You can either charge the phone through the pc or mount the phone as a hard drive. If you want to transfer files to the phone, then when you first plug in the phone to the pc, you need to enable the option "mount as hard drive". You then will get a popup from windows recognizing the hard drive. I use Windows Explorer to transfer files to and from your phone. Note that unless your monitor is 3D you won't be able to playback 3D pictures and 3D videos on your pc monitor.
Solid phone. June 24, 2011
I just got this phone today (edit: Update below!), so I'm no expert, but I can say definitively that this is one of the most intuitive phones around. I've been (predominately) with Blackberry for the past couple of years, and while nice, I really wanted the Android experience. This is a great phone for pros and noobs alike. The interface and navigation is so intuitive, I was tweeting on Twidroyd and checking my email within the first 10 minutes. Setup was a breeze; 3D pictures are AMAZING. It's really holographic. Sound is clear, weight is solid, customization is easy.
For electronics reviews, I usually like to point out any flaws, just to give people a heads up. Since I've only had it since 8 am this morning, the list of flaws isn't long, but here goes:
- While purchasing, the Sprint saleslady kept getting error 67 (internet connection). She switched to 4G and thought it was fixed... until I get in my car and realize I had no data connection. After a quick charge and reboot, the error went away and I haven't seen it since.
- The QWERTY keyboard is really only usable in landscape mode. Maybe a DUH statement, but just a heads up. I'm a lady with slender fingers, and for the life of me, it's impossible to type while holding the phone upright. Get used to two-handed typing for a while. The screen is VERY sensitive.
- The camera's default setting makes everyone look green. You've got to spend some time getting things just right in the settings before you start taking pics or filming. There also aren't that many filters and effects to choose from as I would expect. Luckily there are myriad apps to fill this gap.
- The motion sensor is extremely sensitive. You can be in the middle of something, barely move the phone, and the entire screen you were working in just disappears. Part of this may be my unfamiliarity with it, but some things I would think are just basic. I recommend re-calibrating the G-sensor, or disabling this feature in the settings if you know you aren't a delicate person.
- The cameras lay flat on whatever surface you set the phone down on, setting it up for scratches. I was expecting this based on pictures, but it's still disappointing to say the least. The main feature of the phone is the camera, so I'd expect a recessed groove or something. Oh well, nothing a case can't fix.
- It's now 6 pm and I just got prompted to do a system update. Kind of surprising, being that it's the first day, but I guess I'm glad for any bug fixes this early in the game. Maybe it fixed that error 67 problem.
- The battery cover is a pain to take off (like most HTCs). Considering I just spent a hundred bucks on this thing, I'm not too keen on the whole "pry it apart til it snaps off" thing.
Overall, I feel this is a solid phone that will give me at least a good year and half of use. It remains to be seen if it will have the space/memory issues that past HTC phones have had. Will update.
Update 7-1-11: I've had the phone for a week now, so here are a few more things I've noticed. It's faster to run a marathon than to charge this battery. I suppose that's to be expected, since it's so huge and all, but seriously? You must, MUST figure out how to charge this phone, otherwise it won't keep a charge past 3 hours of normal use. Here is what I do:
- Charge at home with phone OFF. It will take around forever hours and eternity minutes. Seriously, I've had this phone for a week and I've only seen the green "fully charged" light THREE TIMES.
- Unplug once done, then turn phone on. Use as normal.
- At night, charge again until done (or near done), then leave it unplugged and locked, with the wifi, gps, 4g, & mobile network turned off (if you're okay with that).
- In the morning, plug it in and go shower, etc. It will be fully charged or as close to it as possible, and it will hold that charge for a great amount of time.
Some other things I do for the battery life are turning the brightness down to ~50%, never playing too many videos/mp3s while unplugged, and making sure to clear the task manager after checking my email or running an app (I tried ATK and found that I can do better without it). I also close any windows in my browser that I'm not using, disable background updating for my apps, and keep it plugged into my car charger whenever I'm in the car. I do, however, use a Live wallpaper, Live lock screen, and I do lots of web browsing, Market shopping/downloading, tweeting, etc., so it's not like I'm a light user. I'm just light on the media apps.
Speaking of which, I definitely recommend downloading the following apps:
Better Keyboard 8 - The phone comes pre-installed with CrapBoard, which you can tweak by repeating the calibration step 5 times, but you will still hit the letter A when you meant to hit the letter S. Also, if you like to type in any language other than English or Spanish, you're SOL. I settled upon Better Keyboard 8 after testing out a variety of keyboards. This one requires no calibration, it's very intuitive, and there is no learning curve, unlike Swype.
Zedge - The selection of ringtones that come with the phone is pitiful, and to set a custom notification sound, you have to plug the phone into your computer and create a new folder called "Notifications", then paste your sound clips in there. WAY too much work. Zedge cuts out the middleman and lets you download ringtones, then immediately set them for notification or ringtone. It's even got rare songs, international music, and pop culture sounds. The entire database is user-updated, so if someone thought of it, it's out there, for free. They also offer wallpapers, but I haven't seen one I would actually use (mostly teenage boy stuff; half naked girls on cars, etc.).
Equalizer - The volume of ringtones is very low, even when you max it out. I could barely hear my message notification when the phone is in the outside pocket of my purse. With Equalizer, that's not a problem anymore.
I'm also a bit bummed about how little 3D content is out there for the phone. Yes, it's new, but you would think that someone would make some 3D wallpapers, at least. When you search for "3D wallpapers", all that comes up is regular 2D-3D, the non holographic type. While those look cool, they don't fully utilize the 3D capability of the Evo 3D. Kinda bugs me that I can watch YouTube videos in real pop-out 3D, a Hollywood movie in real pop-out 3D, but I can't have a plain old picture in 3D? I guess I could take one myself, but you would think HTC should have covered that base. The only reason I can think of is that 3D pictures only really look 3D when the phone is turned sideways, in landscape. Most wallpapers are made for portrait. Still, I don't care, I want 3D! I paid for it! lol.
There haven't been anymore firmware updates since the debut date. I have not experienced any app problems or lag.
The call quality is fine at home, a tad static-y outside and at work. I talk less than 50 minutes a month though, so I don't really care.
So those are the negatives. To sum up my overall feelings though, after a week with the Evo 3D, I'm even more pleased with my purchase than before. Will update again if there is anything important I can think of.
This phone IS NOT a solid phone and will NOT last, April 1, 2013
I purchased two HTC Evo 4g 3D phones in November 2011. One was for me and the other was my husband.
Oh sure, out of the box these phones were gorgeous. Seemed very sturdy, big pretty screen, beautiful graphics, etc. etc. But all of this has been a horrible, horrible trap to the truth about these phones. It makes me extremely nervous to ever get another HTC phone ever again, of any make or model.
First off, these phones overheat. This is a known issue. If you talk for more than 5 minutes, play a game for 5 minutes, or anything that takes about 5 minutes, it will start to get a bit hot.
Another odd issue, one of the phones would constantly reboot itself randomly for no reason. It would do this 3-4 times a day, every day. This began around May of 2012. It would even do it when you were in the middle of a phone call. This phone was the first one to become useless.
Around August 2012, my phone started to have digitizer issues. I use my phone a lot as I'm out of the house a lot. Also, I do the majority of the phone calls at my house. My husband isn't a big talker when it comes to the phone. So my phone was used more in the beginning. The digitizer problems escalated rather quickly, and within 3-4 weeks my phone became unusable without a great deal of frustration. The bottom third of the phone, where the unlock ring is, is where it's worst. Unlokcing the phone became a nightmare. Sometimes it would take over an hour to get it unlocked. Dialing numbers became impossible. The phone would type and text by itself. The screen would freeze up, sometimes for hours a time. Restarting, taking out the battery, all of this didn't help. Then, in an unfortunate acciden at the end of the November 2012, I dropped the phone so that it hit the edge of a chair on the screen, and the screen cracked. So, now I had broken digitizers and a cracked screen. So, my husband traded phones with me since I needed a phone more and we didn't have the money for a replacement.
So, I've been using my husband's phone since December 2012 and now it's April 2013. So 3.5 months. Now, the digitizers in this phone have stopped working the same as the first. It's in that beginning stages, where it's random. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. But it's escalating quickly, just like before. The screen is starting to freeze up, texting by itself, doesn't respond to touch, can't unlock it. Again, it's the bottom third of the screen where it's worst, the part where you unlock the phone. So, my guess is that using this phone regularly is what breaks it.
The other problem with this particular phone, vs. the one I was using before, is that the phone speaker doesn't work. You can't hear anyone speaking unless you push the "speaker" button. I didn't have to do that with the first phone. It worked normally. This has always been an issue with this phone, right out of the box, but my husband didn't mind as he didn't need to talk much. He's more of a texter.
Now for the "durability" of the case. The first phone I used was fine. This second one is not. The whole outside of the case is coming unglued. Around the camera and the outer molding is just falling off. I'm not rough with the phone. It mostly sits on my desk. But carrying it in my pocket or purse seems to cause it to fall apart. But, I'm not rough but a couple of times I dropped it the screen seems very strong. Unless you drop it onto the corner of a chair.
Whatever you do, do NOT get this phone. As I said, having this experience with two phones now has made me very wary of HTC in general as I wonder if all of them have these digitizer problems.
horrid battery life September 16, 2012
Have had this phone since out came out and can only get about 4 hours put of it even if I never even turn the screen on. By lunch time I will be at 7%. They won't cover the battery with insurance either.
Total Let Down!!!! July 27, 2012
Reviewer: courtney harris
I bought this phone in July of 2011 and it was a great buy. Or so I thought! It turned out to be the phone from hell. The 1st month of having it, I had to return it and get a new one because the previous one over heated! Then, once I received the nest one, it went down hill from there. It freezes, overheats, Shuts off unexpectedly and I lose connection constantly! It overheated so bad one day, as soon as I picked it up, it burned to the touch. I ended up dropping it to the floor damaging the frame. I no longer have that red piece that goes around the camera part because it peeled off!! I rarely used the 3D option so I have no opinion on that. For those who bought it and had no problems, LUCKY YOU, I'm envious. For those who are planning on buying it, GOOD LUCK!
