HTC EVO 3D for Sprint Unboxing (video)

HTC EVO 3D shutter buttonScheduled for release on June 24th, we’ve received the HTC EVO 3D in the TechnoBuffalo labs this morning, so it’s time to get our unboxing on!

At first feel the phone feels thick, but I’m loving the textured feel on the back panel.  What I’m not loving is the placement of the huge camera shutter button that is too easily hit when you hold the phone in your right hand.  (see the picture to the right)  The overall processor speed feels good, but the screen is fairly unremarkable.  The glasses free stereoscopic 3D does indeed work, but it feels gimmicky to be sure.

Overall it feels like a solid choice if you’re on Sprint, but I would suggest holding off until we do our full review before making a final decision.
