First of all, quad core for a smartphone makes no sense. It will suck all juice from the battery even if it is a huge one (which will take a long time to charge). Concerning the size, it seems that smartphones and tablets are becoming same to same. It's just too big man! A phone is a phone and its size should be considered to fit pockets. Manufactures should bear in mind that smartphones can never replace real cameras or laptops. In my opinion, smartphones should be of maximum 4 inches. If someone wants bigger ones, go and get a tablet of 7 or 10 inchds :)

@azuz.It's not often that one wakes up and decides they want to flip mountains from within the palm of their hands.But then,there's always a sense of gratitude when you know you can.This makes some of us sleep a lot better.

Anonymous, 08 Nov 2011no word about the heat sink and fan!!!Arm processors are typically fine without heatsinks. They are more energy efficienct compared to X64 and X86 processors.
[quote]Quad Core for a Cell Phone and Tiny OS Android...... Total Nonsense..[/quote]
That's what we said 3 years ago with a 1ghz single core.
Wait, so the quad-core processor only kicks in while doing a taxing task, while the 400 MHz companion core takes care of the rest? If that's the case, doing a non-taxing task like navigating through the UI will severely lag, right?
6 ghz on a phone and almost two or three external device's driver support...that's tech,700 euros for games and Internet with flash...
Anon5, 08 Nov 2011Sometimes people forget a phone can make calls these days.with that monster i doubt one can make normal phone call. At least not right out-of-the-box. HTC headsets are quite uncomfortable for me.
So yes.. HTC definetly forgot that device should make phone calls.
GSMArena - it's about time you start doing your job and report the value offered by phones with different specs.
What's the value in a 4.7' phone for a non-gamer? what's the value in a dual core for someone who only browses the web?
What you do is just report specs and benchmarks (who cares???) and nothing about usability.
