Just reported on CNN (and it's alll over the web). Looks good. I may give up my S2 and give it a try.

Already in love with my HTC One. Will pass on this one. Samsung pulled an Apple. Same horrid plasticky design with bumped specs. No doubt will be an incredible device, but the HTC One is just too good to give up. Maybe the SGS5 when Samsung (Hopefully) change their attitude and start using nicer materials and a better UI/UX.

I totally agree with that. Got my HTC ONE one week ago, coming from two generations of iPhones before.
I really like it, the feel of it in your hands and the nice UI are great.
I didn´t think it could be so easy to adapt from iOS to Android.
Only problem I have is the size of the screen. Though I love it being bigger than the iPhone4, it does represent a challenge to be used with one hand while walking.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 being almost identical to the S3 was for me as much a disappointment as the iPhone5 over the 4.
Despite never having considered HTC before, the ONE came out as a nice surprise. Great design and built coupled with top notch specs.
It´s my new digital home for the next couple of years.

My last phone was an HTC and while it was innovative when it came out, it came up short on durability.



Inspiration, move me brightly!

Which phone was that?

Don't know if I should get the GS4 or wait for a Note 3 whenever it arrives.

Thunderbolt on VZW, chosen for the reasons given in the Wikipedia write-up:

Quote:

The HTC ThunderBolt (ADR6400L codename "Scorpion" or "Mecha") was the first 4G LTE smartphone on the Verizon Wireless network. It is a CDMA/LTE variant of the HTC Desire HD. It was first announced at CES on January 6, 2011.

In addition to 4G service, the ThunderBolt is the first Verizon phone to support simultaneous voice/data over 3G without the help of Wi-Fi.

My similar dilemma. I got the Motorola Razr (non Maxx) when it first came out last year and I've got about six months left on it,. Still works like a dream, but I have big hands and I am severely tempted to get my hands on the Note 3 when it comes out. I have no interest in a tablet so the note would fit my needs as a cross between phone and tablet. I have a friend who has the note 2 and loves it. I like the feel and the stylus (having a Palm Treo years ago). But six months from now who knows what Motorola might come out with (ive been pleased with Motorolas) but if I were getting a phone today, the HTC One is a beautiful piece of work. I like style and am not thrilled with the Galaxys in build or appearance. And Iphones are just too dang small.

I just read an article just now on Gizmodo where they mentioned Samsung was taking notice of the build of the HTC one and its aluminum body and were concerned the G4 might not be up to par. There was talk of having future SG4's with the aluminum body (apparently the 2 was made with alum at one time but for internal employee purchase only. They mentioned perhaps the Note 3 could be made with a stronger build such as aluminum which would be great.

That's interesting, as i have the GSM Desire HD, have had since it came out in 2009, and after two years of use and battering it still works great running Android 4.0 (CyanogenMod). Admittedly the side battery door has become loose, but a replacement only cost me a couple of £.

Also, the One is an entirely different beast altogether, with the aluminium unibody shell and zero-gap moulding.

Indeed they seem to have improved for the better. In my case, the touchscreen digitizer crapped out with a few months to go on the contract, which was a major PITA and left a bad taste in my mouth...

I have read lots of reviews in lots of different websites before convincing myself that the ONE was good for me.
Only problems experiencing so far are a bad GPS reception indoor and a not enthusiastic battery life.
It´s ok, but not better than the iPhone4 I was using till last week.

If you want something big.
How about the Mega ? 6.3 inch or 5.8 inch. Apparently the Note is too small for Samsung?

I don't think they can even be considered as phones. 6.3"?!?!?! That's ridiculous! Buy a tablet!

Anyway, as AirPacific said, the specs are not that great on those two 'phones'.



The amazing tale of flight.

No they aren't, but they are big  

I am waiting for google and apple to just roll out facetime and google voice as carrier items
