I have changed my old HT2 HTC with Velocity 4 G 6-7 weeks ago, I am absolutely disappointed. Battery goes in 4-8 hours depending on the usage, 4G is just a commercial claim, never goes to 4G even in the centre of two major cities that I have been, poor reception and very poor customer support from HTC, I had problems since day 1 and HTC says that they can repair it for me rather than replacement. It is more than 2 years that I am using HTC, will never do it again.
Think i'll wait to find for myself the battery performance, but honestly i wouldn't use anything but a HTC anymore. tried others, hated them. Pity they're not so well advertised as certain other "big" brands, then people might realise just how good HTCs are.

i'm comparing between this phone and Galaxy SII and Iphone 4S 16GB
please i need anyone answer me honestly which is better because i really don't know which one i should buy
kinda noobish question.
is this going to work with a SIM card for Europe for 3G services and HSDPA?
or will i be stuck browsing with EDGE and talking on 2g services?
hey all, can anyone give me a brief comparison of this phone and the galaxy s2..i have a the s2, great phone but the battery life is awful...i very rarley use any apps, mostly camera and calls/text but with bluetooth on the battery needs charging just about every night.
Is anyone else having trouble keeping the 3g/4g signal on the velocity? Just upgraded from the original HTC desire, which was always on. This one takes up to 5 mins to show the connection & access internet
When can I expect the HTC Velocity 4G in South Africa? I was using a Nokia N96 with live tv now I want to buy the HTC phone. For other smartphones one can use the Nokia TV headset HP1 and install the live tv app to watch mobile tv. Can you do this with the HTC phones?
I don't know why I let the saleswoman talk me into getting this rubbish phone. Yes it is fast wz a good market store, but there are sloop many features that are really frustrating, like having the volume control where you hold the phone so naturally u r decreasing the volume without realising it. There are other features that keep defaulting to factory setting everytime u plug it in to charge. I cannot wait for my contract to finish on this phone. NrOT HAPPY AT AL

No major drama, cover still clips in ok. It's the price I pay for having the best battery life I've ever had in such a powerful phone :)

i will wait android 4 for htc sense to release then i will upgrade to 4.0... but most apps at android market not really supported android 4.0. it might in near future... which ktc are you using now bro? i am using evo 3d at moment..
Just upgraded from a Desire hd, can finally use the next g network!!! The HTC velocity is really awesome, as soon as I got it I rooted it and put on the 3500 mah battery I ordered beforehand and haven't looked back!!!! I've had it for a week and a half and I can't kill the battery... I charge it every night, but I can't flatten it during the day, I can play music allll day plus surf the net (really fast) watch yoitube for hours and play my 64 emulator til I get sick of it!!! I'm used to the battery going flat on me, but the lowest I've had it down to was %24 at which point I was about to put it on charge anyway. I haven't put any roms on it yet, patiently waiting for cm9 ;) Then I'll be able to unleash It's full potential ;D I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PHONE, AND IT WILL BE BETTER WITH CM9!!
