    No SD isn't even that bad. I have a Nexus, and with 6 GB of music, I still have 14 GB free. I don't think I've ever had less than 10 GB free. If anything, I think non-removable batteries are better. Every phone that has one has incredible battery life.

    This will be the tablet form, the phone will have a 720p screen, everyone relax, and yes technology is always going forward.
    Now my question will be, what size battery will HTC go with for such a powerful device, since all their devices have small battery issues.

    If you don't need it then don't buy it. Go back to your flip phone.

    I saw one of their devices with the back cover off and the battery size was hilariously small. I also noticed that there was plenty of room to include a larger battery but instead they chose to put empty plastic.

    HTC? As a former Thunderbolt owner I am going to warn all of you to stay away. They don't update their phones, their "gorilla glass" seems to be plain glass, and the battery lasts .223 seconds before it dies....

    As a current HTC Rezound owner and a former owner of a Dinc and a Dinc2 all my HTC phones have been nothing but fantastic. I don't regret owning any of them. My wife is still using my Dinc2 and when it's time for her upgrade she's going to get an Dinc 4g. Based on what I read in here there is no way I'd own anything but an HTC.

    Which is why I think HTC is trying to be first just to say they were first. I can't see a 1080p screen being useful on a cell phone. I mean the specs are great, but it just doesn't seem to be necessary.

    agreed! my Thunderbolt has been nothing but awesome since I rooted and ROM'd it - I blame Verizon for it's former suckiness, not HTC

    I had a thunderbolt since launch day.. just switched to the S3.. the phone had problems with it reboots... insanely bad battery life on stock battery and a ton of connection issues... thank god for devs and custom roms..
    My favorite problem with the thunderbolt is when ever you restart your phone you lose around 5% battery life instantly.. I can technically drain a fully charged stock battery in 10min if I restart the phone back to back 18-20 times lol

    Untrue. This is a surprising quote coming from a bionic user.

    Ask all the bionic & nexus users who had nothing but problems with their phones if their products were 'polished'. I don't see too many issues in the Rezound forums by comparison.
