Sort by:

Main problem:Battery life is poor

Not competitively priced (300 at the time of writing)
Budget-grade chipset
Disappointing camera output in both stills and video
5" screen a tad thin on resolution
No 3G support on the secondary SIM card
No carrier video-call support
Poor video codec support out of the box
No quick settings toggles in Sense 5
MHL, NFC, IR and Beats audio reserved for the top dogs

Hold on people, if these phones make it to where you are, it would be cheaper than this, The high prices is a tradition outside U.S

good one HTC, although it is a bit on the expensive side,

still i rather buy HTC vs Samsung, i have 2 Samsung phones both failed early on their life span, same with my friends that have different models.
Galaxy S - reformats itself, battery problem
Note 1 - Battery bloats, corrupts itself
Note 1 of my Friend - Same as above
Friend's S3 - Reformats itself
P.S all are stock android and not rooted.

My HTC One X, never failed, never froze on me. Stock OS

Nice move HTC, keep the good model and boom sound speaker and put in various specs. Just follow Samsung, a bit different spec for new type and you will live, and don't be overprice, you're not Apple.
