Are there phones (on any carrier) other than those I mentioned which would be considered significant upgrades from the EVO 3D? It seems to me that list marks the current class of "super" phones - even acknowledging that we know little about the SIII right now.

Perhaps I'm in the minority, but when I get my next phone I would quite like it to have 3D. The option of taking/viewing photos in 3D very much appeals to me.

Just wish the SGIII was 3D because no doubt the camera would miles better than this one. And before people start going on about how good this camera is, it ain't. Even though in bright conditions it can take very nice 2D and 3D pics, it is utter crap in darker situations and if someone so much as flinches, the picture ends up all blurred. Not to mention you get annoying rings if you don't clean the lens before but this isn't case if you put a screen protector over the lens. Suggests to me they used a bad material for it.

So basically, I'm probably gunna wait for the next good 3D phone and hopefully the camera will be much better than this one and not suffer from motion sickness.

It's way too early to say. We still don't know what Motorola will be doing, or Sony. They both usually release a phone every year, just like HTC and Samsung.

I totally agree. I'm sitting this out too. Hopefully Samsung announces a Galaxy S 3D before next summer.

I find it hard to believe anyone will announce a new 3D phone for a while. This phone was relatively a let down in comparison to the hype around the OG. There just isn't enough 3D content to make it worthwhile. I doubt that Samsung will release a 3D phone before Apple does.

As much as I dislike Apple, if someone is going to make the 3D market work, it's them.

LG already announced a new 3D phone.

Samsung and probably even HTC will too. It might not be until next year but it will happen.

Just like if anyone can make NFC popular, its Apple. With hundreds of millions of users, they can set any trend they want. When the iPhone gets 3D, 3D will be popular.

Ehh i wouldn't put NFC in the same boat as 3D....NFC has been around a lil longer than the glasses free 3D on phones has or least more widely used tech...I see more of those payexpress's at different stores every month around here, so its catching on, on its own. And it seems most andorid phones released now have it...

3D though I think might just be something that takes a little longer than NFC to catch on...with or without apple.

I see your point and agree for the most part. However, if Apple was using NFC, I think we would see more payexpress stations at more retailers. One reason for this would be that Apple would advertise the feature like crazy which would potentially motivate retailers to make the switch more quickly. This is all speculation of course and is not based on any facts or evidence.

Oh yes i agree there for sure. Apple would be a reason for a tech to catch on faster than normal...but at this point nfc is out in the wild all over retail locations...if apple adopted nfc a few yrs ago retail places likely would if jumped on board much quicker. Imho...

Apple doesn't dictate what feature is used really as over time anything will gain traction...BUT if they do use something it will likely jump start any adoption of said tech...like 3D...it'll catch on over time slowly on its own....but with apple this or next yr it'd likely get a huge jolt of content available..
