Nice phone. But why no expandable storage? A lot of the world is still on limited data plans, and can't or don't want to use the cloud for everything, as it's expensive to do so. :-\

Looks good, may sell well but not for me. Given past experience with HTC upgrade policy I no longer trust HTC. Needless to say, my next phone was not an HTC

HTC is kidding with be honest, it like to follow apple step with fixed battery and no micro sd card slot...this will kill themselves...nowadays we can see a lot of previous HTC user switch to samsung...this is because samsung listened to the customer desire...disappointed...1st class screen, processor, ram but 3rd class memory...

I have an HTC One X and it lasts me a whole day just fine!
The new Super LCD 3 on the DNA is more power efficient !
Battery life should be decent ! Stop whining .
Great job HTC !

I was getting all excited until I noticed 16gb and no SD card slot. Like the Nexus 4, this means it is NOT an option fore personally! Sticking to my HTC One X+! This could have been so much more HTC! Fail........

Non-expandable memory and fixed battery is criminal.

Every reasonable man will go for the nexus 4 instead of this if he is caught in between the dilemma of which of these two he should buy. Failure of HTC, should they have just included a 2500mAh battery and microsd card support or 64gb onboard memory this would have been a huge success. I guess it will at least pave the way for other smartphones from other companies to make this right.

They have better games and apps in general on the IOS. Please do more research on apple then straight out slamming them. Developers also prefer the ios because their apps for some reason always runs much more smoothly if the app is developed for both os's.

My 32 inch TV has 1080p... why the over-kill with a 5 inch screen... don't think that increasing pixel density can be considered as progress anymore... What's the point of something that can't be utilized to it's full extend???
