The cards that make a funny noise when you scratch them) cards.

It's really just a very limited viewing angle. If you don't look at it just right it doesn't work properly. I didn't buy the EVO 3D for the 3D anyways, although it is fun to play with at times.

It's definitely a good performer, I'm only pointing out the fact that the "3D" (what the primary hype over the phone is) doesn't seem that great to me, though 3D has always been a gimmick in my eyes from the day it randomly became a big thing with Avatar. I would have been happier if they just left the 3D out, I think the rear of that phone is ugly. An EVO 2 would have been just fine!

I really hope Apple's managed to get a hold of the Cortex A15 for the A6 rather than the Cortex A9!

Will probably happen when we get 5120x2880 27 inch monitors, and too when we get 3840x2160 21.5 - 24 inch monitors thumb.gif

One of my friends had a EVO 3D when he switched from an iPhone 4 on AT&T. He seemed happy about it the first month or so, then soon came to realize it was pretty much a downgrade. We both noticed that the pictures looked terrible in 2D and the battery hardly held its charge and according to him the whole phone ran sluggish. When the iPhone 4S came out, he terminated that contract, sold the EVO and went with the 4S on Verizon. He immediately said he wasn't never going to do that again.

It's interesting that nothing has yet to come close to the graphic power in the iPad 2. I was expecting someone by now to be at least a step above it. Whatever Apple has up their sleeves for the iPad 3 is certainly going to pretty much dominate once again.

Like I said before, DPI doubling needs to happen in steps. First with smaller cell phone screens, then tablet, then laptops, then desktops. I know that a 20" 3840x2160 was just revealed, but more than likely that's going to run in the $1500+ range for just the panel itself. I'd say at the earliest 2014 for high DPI consumer-affordable monitors. In the meantime, they're more than likely just for the pros and the more fortunate that have that much money to throw down on a monitor.

Not a Downgrade because they defines a lot of things in a phone. He just was a iPhone fanboy and could not get used to Android.

How is he a fan boy? He sold his iPhone 4 to get an Evo 3D. The display quality wasn't as good, the battery life was less, and the performance was sluggish. Those are some pretty good reasons to get rid of it, and they've got nothing to do with getting used to Android.

I did not read the whole thread but what I don't get is why every time one of these threads is posted there is always a mines is bigger than yours is discussion.

Does it matter? If someone is using 486SX 25mHz then who am to say yours sucks mine is so much better? As LNG as that device meets his needs for whatever it is he does then who am I to say your wrong? It meets HIS needs end of story. It is what HE wants. Yes it's old. Yes by our standards it's before power was invented by who am I to knock what he has?

About the article I myself am excited. Skipped the iPad 2 and 4s for he iPad 3 and hopefully iPhone 5. I for one love my iPad one and it meets my needs perfectly. Being a gadget kind of guy I seriously look forward to the almost all Apple devices (not computers).

Also I have no opinion of Android. I know little to nothing about it other than what a few co-workers say and what I see on TV they look like eat devices just not for me.

It's always funny to me when I read anecdotes from Apple bashers. I simply do not believe that your iPod's battery was that bad. I had a first gen iPod nano that still kept a charge after 5 years. I have an old iPod Video that still keeps a charge, 3 years later. My previous 3GS always kept its charge. My wife's 3GS always kept its charge. And like I said, no cell phone I've ever owned in the last 12 years had battery problems (phones that long pre-dated my first Apple device). My old flip phones, Creative Zen mp3 players, etc etc. So I'm just going to call shenanigans on your pretty little story, because I'm just not buying it. Especially your quoted charge of $300.
Further more, in my previous post, I said "to each their own". If you're fine carrying around spare parts for a cell phone, more power to you. I am not, I expect more out of my devices, clearly you do not.

I have to agree. I have never made use of extra batteries...and my old flip phone from 2004 could hold a charge for days literally. I never died. It was indestructible. I used to make bets with people that if i threw it, it would still work. I threw it 20 feet on concrete, never broke. They don't make them that tough anymore.

It's quite entertaining seeing all the Apple fanboys in this thread crying over small things. Believe it or not, Apple is nearly never ahead. I guess most of you would say 3G on the iPhone was a revolution, just like Apple said, even though it had been on the market for ages? You guys keep living in your caves. There's absolutely nothing impressive about this iPad 3. When people mention 1080p tablets from other brands than Apple, you completely disregard it. It's funny and sad at the same time.
