Looking for an impressive Android handset without a hefty price tag? Then look no further than the HTC Evo 3D, which is now on sale at Asda stores throughout the U.K. for just £207 (approx. $315) SIM-free.
Released just after summer 2011 in the U.K., the Evo 3D is one of just a few 3D handsets available here in Britain. But it seems Brits just aren’t ready for glasses-free 3D smartphones. Priced at over £500 (approx. $787) when it first hit stores, the device has received a number of reductions as retailers attempt to shift their remaining stock.
Back in January, Asda knocked the Evo 3D down to just £250 (approx. $394), but you can now pick it up at a little over £200 — around the same price as budget Android smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy Ace. But this certainly isn’t a budget smartphone. Whether or not you’re interested in 3D technology, there’s no denying the Evo 3D has some great specifications.
In addition to its 4.3-inch qHD display, the handset packs a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor, 1GB of RAM, two 5-megapixel rear-facing cameras (required for taking 3D photos), and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. It’s powered by the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, which has been customized with HTC’s Sense user interface, but HTC has promised that the handset will get its Ice Cream Sandwich update at some point.
You’re unlikely to find another Android handset with those specifications at £207 SIM-free. So even if 3D technology doesn’t float your boat, you should still consider the HTC Evo 3D if you’re on the lookout for a new smartphone.
