HTC M4 surfaces, looks like a mid-range variant of the HTC One

HTC M4 surfaces, looks like a mid-range variant of the HTC One - read the full textIt seems HTC is planning on releasing a younger sibling to the critically acclaimed HTC One. The HTC M4 as it is called for now (the One was called M7 at one point) looks very similar to the HTC One but will have downgraded specifications and a lower price tag to go with them. The M4 design...

Why do people have to argue about the phones on here
Yes the S4 is going to outsell everything but it doesnt mean its good
and yes the S4 looks like the previous phones and samsung are becoming apple
and this is a nice looking good mid range phone
sam fans stop making everything about them and bitch on facebook

> In reply to szymon247 @ 2013-05-01 18:59 from 3ZH5 - click to readI agree with u 100 % on the design of htc one and m4.Yeah they had to fit speakers on the front so the bezel area is more especially at the bottom(reminds me of htc legend, htc one v etc which have more bezel area at the bottom) because of speaker and cap keys than at the top where there is only a speaker/ear piece. So the screen is shifted to one side of the phone instead of being in the center .this is very clear in htc one's design if you hold it horizontally u will see the screen is to one side of the phone , that gives it a old phone/s look. it has also increased the length of the phone. htc one x and one x+ having the same screen size is smaller than htc one. If they had fitted the speakers without increasing the bezel area (may be difficult) that would have solved a major flaw in the design of especially htc one.

What can you do with it ?.What will happen to htc if they put an sd card slot in it. Will it cause an earth quake or something ? At present the best midrange phone of htc is is One X+( after the price drop) and it is going to remain, even after htc m4 is released. I still don't understand why htc is not making phones according to customers needs. You know I waited 2 years for a good speced midrange android phone from htc having front cam ,compass,rear cam with flash,high internal memory or expandable. As htc one s had only 16 gb (user 8 or 11 gb) the only one that was near to my requirements was HTC One SV which has front cam, compass, glonass, rear cam with flash, 8 gb expandable with sd slot, gorilla glass etc.But it was never released in my country,India. All the other models with android ICS below one s does not have front cam and compass.I have options in other brands but I don't like their UIs.So if this M4 is not to going to have higher memory or expandable, I will have to settle with one x + though a little outdated and has an usb port on the side of the phone spoiling the looks that too is uncovered. My opinion on htcs failure in the market is lack of good speced models especially in the midrange.

This battery isn't going to be enough for this phone. 2000MH should have been there.

Damn, I hope they use a normal camera this time around. Also, the bezels are too huge. It'll look outdated fast.

Friend I talked about strategy not the material.
U can read it again that I talked about material :
Hmmmm.
Every fan of a brand discredit other brand. Here on gsmarena I saw a lot of people discredit Samsung that they have boring design, they launch mini with just downgrade spec but sam. Design. So wat about this HTC m4? If this pic, spec r true of HTC m4. So now HTC is moving on Samsung path by just making a cell with downgrade spec and counting the same disign haha. Fans say that there is no diff in shape of s3 and s3 mini. So now wat about HTC one and this HTC m4? Same shape, same UI, same looks. The poor who pay a lot and bought HTC one r just led in the midrange class by looks. So r HTC R & D department following samsong R & D in making the strategy of minis of flagship?

1700mAh is not perfect at all, because most phones a few years back with less powerful processors had poor battery life, ideal battery size for this device is around 2000mAh, and 3000mAh is better for 5"+ screens

HTC on Samsung Path?? ...:D You invent a superb design and then add that to your mid range mobiles is something good..but you invent worst design and then add it to every mobile you release is stupidity.. understand the difference you give dual speaker to mid range will really help those who want good speaker quality.
Ultra Pexil will help them take better images in low light..

What Did S3 MINI have ?? no 720p Screen or Super Amoled or Sensors that S3 had..or 8 mega pixel camera..nothing at all..it did not inherit anything from the flagship other than that so called "DESIGN FOR HUMANS"..worst i have seen from samsung..
