    I can agree with that. It still is a outstanding phone but the non removable battery and no SD support are simply deal breakers for me. Aside from that I agree that this is a damn nice phone with the best screen on the market.

    I looked at my S3 and thought. If we are honest with ourselves, we all know the S4 will not hold a candle to this phone's build quality. As usual, Samsung will use the cheapest available cell phone material of any flagship device. We are about 75% sure it will have a pentile display. Then it will have gimmicks in touchwiz that none of us use. Aka S-voice and everything else. HTC's biggest miss with this phone is not being Samsung or Apple. Sent from my GalaxyS3.

    I'll never understand the build quality arguments when most people use cases on their super durable phones.. build quality is fixable with a $5 case... you can't fix missing SD slots.. smaller non removable batteries and the phone not even being on your network... samsung is addressing screen build quality with their new screens and actual s4 specs remain to be seen but there's no doubt it will be phenomenal

    My point was not to compare the Rezound vs Razr Maxx HD, which by the way both have 720p displays, but the Rezound has a better resolution at 340 PPI vs. 312 for the Maxx HD. The HTC One will have an eye popping 468PPI, 1080P display, hands down the best display available when it is released, the DNA being next at 440PPI, the Razr Maxx HD is nowhere close to these two.

    Found 2 sites that say the S4 will have a 5inch display at 440PPI, NOT better than the HTC One 468PPI, although probably indescernible to the naked eye. Obviously this is still speculative though. I will say that the S3 colors were cartoonish, while HTC DNA seems more "real"

    I wonder if the carriers have anything to do with this trend of not having SD cards. The carriers want you to use cloud storage now that they got rid of unlimited data. Us streaming all of our content, with tiered plans, puts millions in their pockets.

    there's no way they think people are that stupid to keep going over their data.. after the first overage they'll upload via cable or wifi... im sticking to retail and unlimited .. and while there is still phones w SD slots I'll be buying those

    But it could prompt a lot of people to increase their data tier.

    Let's say that pushing cloud storage over local storage causes just 10,000 users to increase their data plan by a measly $10.

    That's $1.2 million per year, plus taxes. And 10,000 users is a drop in the bucket as a portion of their customer base, and that is also assuming that the tier increase is only $10 for each. It could be more people over time, and more than 1 bump in their tier.

    Food for thought. I mean, who benefits the most from having such little storage on such a flagship device(s), that have large screens that encourage video and stuff?

    The person that holds the pipeline to supply that content. HTC doesn't benefit from not having an SD slot. Sure, maybe it saves them $1 per phone, but that isn't enough of a reason to cripple the phone and possibly hurt sales, unless they were making money from the carrier, who will benefit from not having an SD slot because of exorbitant data rates.

    I'll take LCD with this: "The HTC One sports a 4.7-inch 1080p HD display with a pixel density of 468 pixels per inch, which makes it one of the sharpest-looking smartphone screens in existence.

    I realize build quality may not matter to some, but to say you don't understand the build quality argument is a reach. Every company spends millions of dollars designing a phones form factor. They follow that up by spending some more on drop tests, and scratch resistance, button feel, etc. We all are the edge our seats waiting to see the final design. Every review judges the phone on how it looks, feels, and functions in hand. When we go to Verizon to test a new phone, we do the same. We talk about Gorilla glass and oleophobic coatings. How could covering the resulting aesthetics, altering the ergonomics, and comprising the function with cases and screen protectors be a fix? It's not. It's a compromise we are forced to make.

    LMAO....the phones still all look pretty much the same to me. The way people parse the dimensions of a rectangle and nitpick at bezels is only rivaled by art snobs.
