Review: HTC Evo 3D

Nuffnang and not forgetting, Digi are nice to award my teammates and I the brand spanking phone review after we made a fool of ourselves here.

So I got the taste of trying the smartphone for 2 weeks. Lo and behold, HTC Evo 3D!

Knock myself on the head for not having any actual photos of the phone.

The very first thing that you're gonna notice apart from huge 4.3 inch touchscreen is the dual camera. Well, the phone as the name suggests, has the function of taking 3D photos.

You can have the option of choosing 2D or 3D camera mode with the slid key

Exhibit A

It's interesting that the phone has the ability of taking 3D picture, though your eyes would have quite a hard time adjusting & finding the right angle to see the 3D-ness of it. Unfortunately, 3D image has an .mpo format and since normal PC doesn't support .mpo file, one has to convert it using some thingamajig software.

Instead of crossing my eyes trying to figure out the 3D effects, I am more interested in taking the normal 2D photos of myself.

Exhibit B

OK, I look like a deer caught in the headlights. Or maybe possessed, by the spirit of one-that-eats-too-much-lemang-and-rendang.

The phone also records a high definition (HD) video but the video that I took was a bit private to share. Now, before you start going into THAT direction, sorry to disappoint you with the thought but it's not some home tape of Paris Hilton, ok. Lets keep the review an U (umum), shall we?

*clears throat*

At first, I was having difficulties in figuring out how to actually use the phone but after quite some time, I got the hang of it. I am a smartphone noob but my husband is a user of iPhone and surprisingly the phone's functions and interface is quite similar to iPhone. So yeah, I would say that it is indeed user friendly.

And since all HTC phones operate on Android, meaning that you can download (most of) the applications for FREE! Yay for me and yay to playing games without having to fight over the phone with my husband, for 2 weeks.

I can see that my husband is silently nodding to this.

When you have such a smart phone that can practically get you connected (provided that your place has internet coverage), what would you do when everyone seems busy talking to each other?

You update your Twitter

and Facebook. And spamming your friends' wall wishing them "Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri. Maaf Zahir & Batin"

Actual names have been removed due to privacy.
It's a smart-freaking-phone y'all. Social networking on the go. Yo.

You know what, if you are tech-savvy and interested to get a hold of the phone, you can actually do so because Digi is now coming up with an affordable smart plan.

Lastly, thousand thanks to Digi & Nuffnang for picking us, the Sensation team as a winner and giving us the chance to review such an awesome phone. Even if for only 2 weeks. But you know what, giving out the phone ACTUALLY for free doesn't sound bad, right?
