Nice, good size. BUT, no micro sd. That's a negative. Also for a quad core only one gig of ram. What's the point of a quad core if it only has one gig of ram. Going to wait for the Galaxy S 3.

this is not a midrange smart phone. This site thinks that a top end device needs to be 5 inches. Anyone can put a lot of technology into a larger device. We may as will be walking around holding laptops up to our ears.

it takes skill to put a lot of tech into a mobile device

This probably has a better processor than the one in the One X.
The dual core Snapdragon S4(28nm Cortex A-15 similar architecture) beats the quad-core Tegra 3(Cortex A-9)

Moreover a dual core is much more power efficient than Quad core.

I'll go for this rather than the One X.
Cheaper and better!

HTC always have similar design. They never innovate their exterior hardware which is simply getting boring.

Honestly dont bother with them, dude. They are all Nokia fanboys turned sour because IOS and Android have displaced thier beloved Symbian OS, once the greatest. They have no opinion of thier own and base thier arguments on what Microsoft or others tell them to believe despite never ever having tried out the handset.

You have never touched the device yet you talk like you're part of the development staff. "or so"? You don't even know the actual battery size, no one does because it hasn't been officially announced, and even if that's the size it doesn't mean the backup is poor. With the right tech and software development this phone could very well have good battery back up. You're just some geek that doesn't actuallly know anything but bases his opinions on the opinions of others smh

I think this HTC will fulfill every need from a smartphone
