I love this phone! 4.7" sounds perfect. Imagine how the Zune UI is going to look on this baby: album arts, artists' pictures, and more!
The only drawback is it not having an expansion memory slot. I don't know why Windows Phone devices can't seem to keep up with expansion memory slots with other Android devices.
I will like to see a nice kickstand, too! I'm going to wait for this baby when it comes out, but would love for HTC to really consider providing a kickstand and at least 32Gb expansion memory slot.
The Samsung Galaxy S2 is a nice competitor, but I want a good solid mobile OS and not have to worry about the tons of Android versions and updates.
WP7 Mango release will turn a lot of eyes towards its more than 500 upgrades. A major plus is having DNLA and other features too many to mention.
Mango release is a major, serious, update and those who waited will be very impress.
Another reason why I'm going to get this device is because I like HTC Hub. Getting instantaneous emails from my Live accounts, Facebook message, a powerful calendar that interfaces with MS Outlook, and using MS Office product are just a few of the benefits I'm looking forward to upgrading. I think this phone is a phone that anyone will be very happy for several years to come and it won't be obsolete in less than a year.
Another recommendation for HTC is to provide 1080p output via HDMI. I guess there will be some sort of USB/HDMI interface?
But in all, it's a good start and great beginning that WP7 will finally get some high-end phones.
nickname, 12 Jul 2011i think it would be better if it was an adroid phone.believe me, it wouldn't... :)
I like the screen size.
I find any screen under 4 inches hard to use, particularly if it's a touch screen.
It's interesting how it's such a fast single-core processor. Perhaps HTC know something about how WP7 handles processors that we don't.. (eg. maybe it's not well optimised for dual-core)
The screen is far too big and the RAM is terribly small. I see flaws everywhere. And I really wonder whether the camera snaps will be any good. More MP doesn't mean better pictures. My sister owns the HTC Desire with a 5MP camera and the pictures look pretty bad. They need better sensors but I'm speaking from experience over a phone that is a year old. I haven't used any 'recent' HTC devices so I'm not sure whether they've bothered to improve it.
I'm liking WP7 Mango (but there are still some things that need to be addressed/included). In the beginning I thought it was terrible but now it looks decent. I know that a lot of reviewers are saying that WP7 will never surpass iOS or Android but I've grown fond of the WP7 UI.
I hope HTC can make a top WP7 device because I want to use Mango and I like how they are sturdy. I know their designs aren't as 'special' as Nokia's Sea Ray but they look relatively professional and smart (even though I'm far from getting a job!). Come on HTC, bring us something better!
os=wp7 mango :((((( i wonna android :((((
i wonna buy htc sensation i can't wait for next android phone :((((( but htc elementary have better cpu and screen :((((((
Would have like this if the screen was 4.3 its really a drawback cuz no sense of having that much big screen in a smart phone. But still I can add this to my consider list :)
999, 01 Jul 2011too big screen fora smartphone - at least for me ...for you I don't knowYa , my hd7 has a big enough screen:)
Mobilemaster, 01 Jul 2011Its a pretty good device if all the specs are real. But I there are some problems with this de... morei have the hd7 and i only use the 16gb for music and contacts. when you buy a phone you arent buying a camera:) just sayin. I love my hd7
donzebe, 05 Jul 2011This will be a killer phone. WP7 is a great OS. I have the hd7 and i love it. The eternity is a bit bi in my opinion and they both will have the same specs after the mango update:)
The htc hd7 is a bit smaller and has the exact same specs and os(when mango update comes out) I own the hd7 and i love it. So i think the hd7 is better
I have the HD7 and it is the perfect size. Not too big nor too small. I think the Eternity will be too big, the hd7 is 4.3 inches and the eternity has a 4.7 inch screen. And they both have the same specs besides the Mango os, but the hd7 will also have mango when the update comes out. So i would get the hd7 just because it is the exact same, looks better(in my opinion) and a bit smaller
with added card slot i wish"..this phone is a beast!!you dont need a laptop or a netbook anymore.
Wow great phone!!!! nice features,and I have seen videos of mango os it's goona be a great os.Waiting eagerly for this 4.7 inch beast.Good work HTC keep it up.
