AnonD-184377, 07 Dec 2014this will be my next phone,,,,
htc always do in styleNot for me.
I just bought an S5. DO they expect that everyone who bought an M8, Xperia Z3 or SGS5 in 2014 will dumb theirs and buy yet another +800 euro flagship phone?
Just wish they were more active in South Africa. The make great devices but it is always such a problem finding a accessory or repair center for them.
I am ok with 1080p screen but it should be 5.2", maxx at 5.5" with little or no bezels all around and logo bar gone.
A battery of 3000mAh should be the minimum, probably should go as high as 3500mAh but if they use a QHD screen the battery should be 4000mAh.
Amazing! I like it...
Using 1080p screen on the top of the end hardware will ensure either good battery life or fast speed or both.
Rather than being rendered out of competition by using a 4K or 2K display like LG G3, its better to go 1080p! :)
I'm not against progress... I would love 4K display on a mobile when:
1. the hardware is blazing fast for it, and battery is enough,
2. the displays are bigger, even if it means fold-able in a way,
This phone is really stunning but I cant understand why it uses the fossilized 1080p resolution. Whereas the future trend seems to be 4k
I hope HTC comes to its senses and include a SD card slot.
Too many companies are going the ifruit way,they think mobile data is cheap and everyone wants to go on cloud.
Guy Hero, 06 Dec 2014Nope... 5.5 is phablet size and most ppl prefer smaller then 5 inches anyway.aayyyyyyye they sure do prefer smaller than 5 inches :)
I'm really hoping that the dual camera gimmicks will be gone in this next flagship. I hate how ugly it looks. 20MP rear + 4MP front is good enough. For me, M7 has the best design so far.
@khan@, 06 Dec 2014It should be 5.5" & 6"Nope... 5.5 is phablet size and most ppl prefer smaller then 5 inches anyway.
specs are all really good except the 2850 mAh battery, it's still low
Muthu, 05 Dec 2014Yep, I completely agree with end-user being given the choice to choose the resolution. Not sur... moreHow hard can it be to allow image scaling with such capable hardware? It's just one side that dev teams dont really consider. There are alot more functions that are ignored by these people that are absolutely necessary to have.
AnonD-308243, 05 Dec 2014thats a positive look at what can be achieved. yep i agree with advancements and also think en... moreYep, I completely agree with end-user being given the choice to choose the resolution. Not sure, why google has not thought about it yet to implement in android. Or, may be there are bigger challenges that we are not aware of.
honestly my phone is not my gaming gear although i'm already a gamer(PC gamer),so i don't care if its 808 or 810 but i'd care if it had a better battery.1080 looks enough on a 5".3gb ram? unnecessary IMO,
what do you guys do with 3gb of rams in your PHONES anyway(?!!!)
tell ya what there won't be 20.7 cam also,cause it'd mean HTC had been lying to his customers all this time about Ultra pixel,there would be an ultra pixel thing whatever the number would be,maybe 8 mega of ultrapixels.
Muthu, 05 Dec 2014Dude, there is something called balance. A person cannot have a 5 feet hand if that person is ... morethats a positive look at what can be achieved. yep i agree with advancements and also think end users should be given a way of controlling the resolution on this devices from 2k, 1080p or even 720p on this devices and therefore if the panel does not suit the function u need the user can just downscale or upscale to the desired resolution. whats the point of having all this tech and most of its functions are locked to the user. lets hope software functionality also improves to near desktop level with this 64bit systems on the horizon bro.
