HTC EVO 3D vs. LG Revolution Comparison

Wirefly Learn » Android Phones

May 24th, 2011


New cell phones continue to be released rapidly this year, with several new offerings from Verizon Wireless in the past few weeks. One is the LG Revolution, which will become Verizon’s third 4G LTE phone (after the HTC ThunderBolt and the Samsung DROID Charge) when it launches in the next few days. The Revolution has fast internal performance to go along with Verizon’s speedy LTE data service, and it has a lot of cool features. For example, the LG Revolution comes with Netflix capability and it can work with a wireless charger. In addition, it comes with lots of memory storage for your videos and music.

Another big phone that’s coming in the next few weeks is the HTC EVO 3D for Sprint. Sprint had a smash hit with the EVO 4G last year and the EVO 3D pushes the EVO envelope even further, with a built-in 3D camera, 540 x 960-pixel display, dual-core processor and 1GB of processor RAM. The HTC EVO 3D promises to shake up the cellular world this summer, just like the EVO 4G did last summer. The LG Revolution vs. the HTC EVO 3D – how do these two powerful but yet-to-be introduced phones compare?
