We live in a high definition world these days, and there are plenty of Full HD devices running around out there, with the chief culprit being those huge flat screen TVs. Smartphones are not too far behind either in terms of capturing High Definition video, with most of them doing just 720p instead of 1080p that is found in Full HD – and the upcoming HTC EVO 3D is one of them that fall under the former category unfortunately.
This is a bummer, since the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint was originally touted to feature 3D video recording at 720p, while standard 2D recording is done at Full HD 1080p. The specifications seem to have taken a knock, as video recording for both specifications have been knocked down to 720p, 3D or no 3D.
Sprint apologized that the 1080p mention was “a typo in the spec sheet”, but do you think it could actually be a last-minute decision that cause the disablement of a feature which might actually have pushed the handset’s processing power to the hilt, hence resulting in a poorer battery life? This won’t be a make-or-break decision, but we’re sure everyone would want more for the same price.
