    Aesthetics are great. Internal specs are decidedly better than the RAZR HD series which should move units. This is definitely looking to be the best "DROID" branded phone released, and it looks like they are returning to what made the series so successful in the first place, only the newest and highest quality phones. Releases like the droid 3 , X2 , and droid charge somewhat diluted the brand but it looks like they are steering the ship in the right direction.

    After saying all that though, it isn't enough to win me over the Note 2. Small battery, no SD slot are killer flaws. I also want the bigger size and s pen features of the Note 2. But I'm glad to see this high quality phone being releases at the fair price.

    No card slot? 11 gigs usable storage? Meh.

    Epic fail. To drum up such an awesome screen and processing power but then forget to also get a decent battery and cut out an SD card slot.... Why even bother? If you are like me then you get a phone this size so you can leave the tablet at home and have a fair sized screen for games, movies, and looking over some boring business report.

    I commute via train/bus for 2 hours to get to and from work as I refuse to drive 200 miles a day. I can not always have my phone topped off before leaving work and to have to worry about a phone's battery defeats the purpose. Couple that with the need for me to have to swap out movies/games almost daily and it becomes more of a chore.

    So much hype around this phone that I would have pre-ordered yesterday. Then they annouced it today and confirmed the feared lower battery level and no sd card slot...

    Can someone please get me the phone number for the CEO of HTC and post it in this thread. Better yet, post his e-mail. Perhaps a few thousand, "build a phone with a freakin bigger battery!" spams over the course of a month might change HTC's thinking. Then again, maybe not.

    I was seriously leaning towards this device over the Note 2 if it had a 2500 mah battery, but now I'm probably leaning toward the Note 2. Still, I'll compare both in the store and see what the reviews say. The battery may not be THAT bad. Plus, an insanely georgeous screen and camera are a bit compelling.

    I equate it to buying a Ferrari but only being able to buy a gallon of gas at a time. Sure you might laugh at the guy down the street with the Nissan GTR since his might not be as fancy and high tech but he is able to buy a full tank of gas....

    I would go GTR all day every day

    Are you serious, the specs on the Thunderbolt only warranted certain updates, do you know how OLD your smartphone is, updates, LOL.

    So I just upgraded 10 months ago, but got an email from VZW telling me to "upgrade today". Is this because I'm still on unlimited, or is it a glitch that they are really badgering me to upgrade at retail?

    Just seems to me like if I got an email they would be offering some sort of promotion.

    After messing around with my cousins Note 2 yesterday, officially felt the need to get a phone with a larger screen (Galaxy Nexus isint that small but still).... I had my hopes set on this, and I dont even mind the small battery, the quad core processor is supposed to help battery purposes. but only 11GB of useable space! I dont understand what companies are thinking nowadays?? Same thing with the Nexus4.. With all the apps coming out today, especially the games... giant size apps. That leaves us even less space to load Music and movies on our phones. What is the point of having a large screen than!

    just in a pissy mood because this phone actually looks awesome. All phones should come out with a minimum of 32gb...
    I saw the HTC one X+ coming out with 64GB... why not this?? :angry:
