The HTC Evo 3D is arguably the most high specification mobile phone currently available in the marketplace. Not only does the handset offer users 3D facilities but also the benefit of a great dual core processor together with the excellent Sense user interface. Their are many rumors however that we are soon to welcome a newcomer in the shape of the eagerly awaited iPhone 5 from Apple. So what can we expect from this new handset and how exactly will the supposed specifications match up with what HTCs multi media beast can offer?
Despite much talk of the new iPhone sporting a brand new design we can be assured that it will still look very much like a traditional Apple phone. All four generations of the phone so far have varied yet in a strange way all looked the same. One can comfortably predict that this will be the case yet again which is pleasing as the handsets are undoubtedly attractive, however they are hardly attention grabbing. An area where we are fairly confident of some change is in the devices size which will inevitably increase to incorporate a larger display which is rumoured to measure around 4 inches. The HTC Evo 3D is unmistakably an HTC phone. Its design is both striking and modern and perfectly blends curved corners with some sleek lines. Where the handset does change things a little is on its back panel where HTC have added a little more extravagance. A chrome logo together with a carbon fibre strip that runs through the middle help keep the phone looking ultra modern whilst the dual camera lenses required for 3D add yet another talking point.
The HTC Evo 3D is one of the fastest phones currently available thanks to the great chipset that it employs. The phone uses a Qualcomm MSM8660 processor which not only boasts dual cores but also a high speed of 1.2Ghz. This processor is coupled with a great quality graphics processing unit in the shape of the Adreno 220 chip. It is expected that Apple will make the iPhone 5 the first such phone to sport a dual core processor which is in line with the changes we recently saw on the iPad2. Given that they normally excel in this area the change would bring the phone in line with both the Evo 3D and the highly acclaimed Samsung Galaxy S2. Obviously one area where the phones will differ totally is when it comes down to the operating systems that they use. The HTC runs on Android 2.3 and the new iPhone will be the first phone to sport the iOS5 platform. In this area it really does come down to the preference of the consumer. Many people love the iOS but on the same token Android has a huge following thanks to its versatility. The popularity of both models could simply boil down to which operating system the public prefers, regardless of the slight differences in specification on the two models.
Despite the anticipation surrounding the release of the iPhone 5 it is unlikely that there is going to be any change that is so great it propels the handset ahead of all competition. The more likely scenario is that Apple will gear their phone up to compete with the current big hitters in the market which is undoubtedly the impressive HTC Evo 3D and the Samsung Galaxy S2.
