Hello, I am from Karachi (Pakistan).
I was using HTC Sensation. Just bought a new Amaze yesterday.
It was on Gingerbread. And because its an Asian version, so no official ICS was available for it (yet).
I am active member on XDA. I followed many guides there, did some experiments, and now I am successfully running latest ICS ROM on it.
Anybuddy interested can follow the steps I have posted here:
haxan, 10 Feb 2013Can anyOne tell when will htc launch its ics update ?? actualy i recently consulted a htc deal... moreT-logo is the one released in US. Amaze in Pakistan comes without a logo. It can't be updated to ICS 4.0 because ICS 4.0 isn't released for Asian market (including Pakistan).
But even then it is a pretty good phone, considering its price. The battery, as everyone claims, is NOT as poor. Most smart phones have battery issues. Amaze lasts around a day on moderate use. Only Wifi and Gaming eat up battey quickkly.
Final word: If you are tight on budget, its a perfect option for you (apart from Xperia P, which is for 26,000)

zQ, 05 Feb 2013so you mean its not original by htc?? in 25kman it is sold for around 15-16k !
I brought amaze 5 days age, and its really working fine. camera is superb and very fast processor, the only problem is the battery, bcoz on heavy use it only works for 8 hours but if u use it only for calls and sms, your battery will work for 15-20 hours. overall its a nice phone.
shiv, 05 Feb 2013i want to buy this phone by the weekend...pls suggest...do we really need to charge it twice a day.It has very poor reception in side the house also you are right you need to charge the phone twice a day if you are even using it in a normal way
i've a problem... i've bought new htc amaze but its signal becomes zero after intervals of time .. dont know how to find a solution to this problem ..can anyone help me pleeezzz
zQ, 05 Feb 2013so you mean its not original by htc?? in 25kit is 100 % original. But what i got is Asian Version of HTC amaze X715E and it is not upgradeable as of now that is what available in Pakistan by its official distributor.
Only T-Mobile got upgraded to ICS in Eurpe and USA.
Do you have any idea that HTC will announce ICS on this Asian version?
plz anyone tell me why this phone is only 25k in pakistan infact desire x is 30k but this phone has some better features than desire x
Arsalan Ahmed, 05 Feb 2013The logo/SIM-free version (without the T-Mobile logo) isn't exactly the best deal. As someone ... moreI have bought this set today with a 1 year warranty from Brightex HTC official dealer in Pakistan. The set is awesome.But will this set get update to ICS or JB in near future, plz guide? The only reason i bought it because it has local warranty and its specs. But what about ICS update on this version Amaze x71e?
i want to buy this phone by the weekend...pls suggest...do we really need to charge it twice a day.
Arsalan Ahmed click the above pasted adress.
didnt T-mobiles its self dpops down the price of htc amaze??
The logo/SIM-free version (without the T-Mobile logo) isn't exactly the best deal. As someone mentioned, don't be fooled by the 25k price tag. The one being offered (without logos) on discount is the X715e version, made in China, and no ICS OTA update.
Now if you are a bit of a nerd, like me, thats probably a deal breaker. If you are a novice android user, you won't get a better deal. Best phone in the price range. Battery is much much better than many other smartphones out there. The 1 year warranty is good peace of mind. And the features are enough to last you a lifetime.
For total nerds, go for the T-Mobile logo version. You probably won't get it in warranty, but its made in Taiwan and you'll be better off getting the ICS upgrade. The first update is glitchy, but another update takes care of most of the bugs. It is also in line to get the JB OTA update, but that'll probably take a few months.
it is really a great set. camera is owsome and touch is really nice
it is awailable in market in just 23500 and i think it is the best set in such a price
rizii, 04 Feb 2013ahmad ! how is it camera performance.....comparable to g s2 or not... also tell me about its b... moreDear believe me camera is outstanding and batttery is also good. Warranty is from brightex which us official delaer of htc in Pakistan. The only problem is currently Ics update not available. Otherwise its amazing set like its name amaze.
