Better images can now be taken with your HTC EVO 3D phones. XDA Developers member Igor Bezkrovny has successfully allowed the camera application on the HTC Amaze 4G to run on the HTC EVO 3D.
The ported app can be installed on both rooted and non-rooted EVO 3D handsets. According to Bezkrovny, users of non-rooted EVO 3D units can simply install the Android Package (APK) file that he has created. Owners of rooted EVO 3D handset can either install the APK file or flash the ZIP file containing the app.
Some of the modifications include changing the 3D resolution to 2048×1152, long-pressing to capture photos, and setting the JPEG quality to 100%.

There have been recent claims on the recently updated HTC Sensation and HTC EVO 3D spying on users, by collecting data such as location and different user behaviors. HTC has responded to this by assuring consumers that they have nothing to worry about.
The company has no intention of collecting user information without their knowledge and that any data collected is done on an opt-in basis. This only happens when an error occurs and the user sends a report to HTC. However, even if personal information is forwarded to HTC, the data sent is encrypted and the company makes sure that it is stripped of any identifying factors.
