    HTCs new flagship phone out sometime next week! I've got mine preordered on Amazon, supposed delivery next Thursday, however looks like expansys are doing delivery tomorrow, so I have put in a cheeky tester (only for the grey version)

    Tegra 3 and great camera functionality. Still waiting for official reviews but the hands on and general preview stuff sounded amazing.

    25GB Dropbox as well, sounds good.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    About the only thing that could tempt me into upgrading to this over my Sensation XE any time soon is a significantly better battery life.

    And since someone kindly told me about JuiceDefender, the battery on my phone has not been that bad anyway.

    Really temepted by this, Have the HD Desire at the moment and love it, battery is crap but brought a seperate high end one which seems to have given me a an extra 2 x hours on the crappy HTC one.

    I will wait till my upgrade to pick this up later in the year.

    The ROM port I tested on DHD was ultra smooth with no lag whatsoever. Found other sense ROM's to be quite laggy. I was impressed with it. The music centre is a good idea. It has the music app, soundhound and some radio thing all linked together.

    May see about an early upgrade to get it.

    Battery life is definitely a concern, especially as you can't buy replacement batteries for this thing. Hopefully they've done some work on it this time round.

    In a way, i'd have preferred a samsung galaxy note, but i dont want to upgrade to a phone thats running last years CPU as that would eventually irritate me.

    this looks good though, also the media link capabilites (mirroring like iphone to apple tv) look ace for holidays

    I picked up a double capacity battery for my S2 from ebay for a couple of quid. Comes with a different expanded backing for the phone and makes it fairly hefty. But if you are out and about for a long day its a godsend.

    So what's so special about this one? This isn't the one with the - cringe - 3D display or projector is it?

    If I was not gifted a Lumia 800 for Christmas (a lovely surprise!), I would have quite happily bought this little gem.

    Oh so there is no unique selling point it is just another supped up Android phone?

    What phones actually have USPs anymore? Apart from the beam.

    It will be the most powerful phone on the market until at least the SGS3 or iphone 5

    But it is Android, so what exactly is that power for?

    Thats the exact sort. Makes the phone somewhat chunkier and heavier, but well worth the sacrafice for when its needed.

    @mowgli Akin to saying, "But this PC only runs OS xyz, why would you want a higher spec."

    Top stuff, cheers. For the odd day here and there, being a bit bigger and heavier is no biggie

    Skyfire browser?

    Spec sheets are fucking nothing to get excited about on Android unless you like even shorter battery life I guess.

    The dodgy Internet footy streaming sites usually don't though!

    Hmmm. The bit around 14mins of that video is what really worries me about switching to android. And what's with that Loading message every time you go to the home screen? It's the home screen!

    "True multitasking"

    Otherwise known as shit usability.

    Were you ever not an ignoramus? I'm sure once upon a time maybe.
  • Deleted user 30 March 2012 22:09:11
    Oh I'm sorry if I upset you.
  • Deleted user 30 March 2012 22:10:12
    Not upset, you seem to be the one outraged about it for seemingly the fact its not an iPhone.

    Having gone from an iPhone to Android, I can safely say there's nothing about iOS that I miss. You can do all the same shit, my phone has a many quirks as my iPhone but none of them are that important. The iPhone did some things better, Android does others better. The upside it's that this phone was free.
  • Deleted user 30 March 2012 22:17:04
    Nah, nothing to do with that. Where did I mention iPhones actually? You are speaking out of your arse. Giving my impression of Android and my reading of some news about this phone. Sorry it isn't super duper positive.
  • Deleted user 30 March 2012 22:19:34
    Not being positive is different to being retarded.

    You can be a better man mowgli. I believe in you.

    That is cool, and the above is only my impression of my -fucking awful - time with Android. On a shit cheappo Android and a super duper S2. Certainly don't expect others to share my experience. And tbh, the reason I'm still in this thread is that I'm actually kinda interested in this. Bloody bored of iOS.

    Well that's the main reason I'm going for android this time round. Bored of ios, and I have my iPad for ios gaming if I ever want to.

    Plus the bigger screen would suit me better, I read and surf the Internet a lot. And I have aptx headphones which iOS doesn't fully support, but the htc will.

    If I don't like it I can send it back to amazon within 7 days :)
  • Deleted user 30 March 2012 22:25:19
    Its one thing to genuniely want something different in your mobiles but its another to dive in swearing away and writing off an entire section of the market based on anecdotal experiences.
