Gotta have this,but htc keep on releasing new phone,before i want the xl, but now im thinking for this,i love the specs..
Only 8 megapxl camera...what a shame. they say that you need a hand operation to to be able to hold it it one hand.
this is redicilious.
Azuz, 08 Nov 2011Quad Core for a Cell Phone and Tiny OS Android...... Total Nonsense..I disagree with Azuz that quad cores aren't needed in phones.
Previous reports indicate that some cores can be under clocked to do every day tasks that do not require much processing. The other cores can be full speed for applications requiring more grunt.
This can potentially provide big battery savings.
Also i remember 12 months ago everyone saying dual core on phones was overkill... now dual core is the minimum requirement.
If this is soon to become reality, it will burn your fricking hands off, i am betting this device will be a hot as the sun
First to jump the tegra platform were LG
They failed due to battery problems , software updates , and shity build quality.
Now second to jump the tegra platform are HTC
Will they fail? will they bring us the best phone on the planet?
Wichever the case samsung will probably bring something better to the table . Shame i kinda like HTC designs.
name me ONE application that uses Dual Core not even Quad Core !!! totally nonsense ! Battery drainage sure for feeding 4 cores !! WHY !?!! Companies should invest in making Higher capacity Batteris !

My galaxy S runs stock 2.3.4 with no modifications, no live wallpapers and i get 2 -3 days of moderate usage.
IF i put my 3500 mah batter wich i bouth for 10 dollars i get 4-5 days of moderate usage and 1 week of light usage.
In YO face phones that lakc posibility of aftermarket customizations !! :))

Was just a matter of time SG2 users will get mad about this, since SG2 will be not any more the hot stuff around....
psychoart, 08 Nov 2011Why are some people crying here???
I had Samsung, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Nokia, HTC, and... more
dude the problem is when ever someone start it the rest follow like sheep! so htc begins it than samsung gets jealous and wants to prove that they are better, than all other follow.
and we are the victim! and nowadays the world is heading for smartphones and feature phones are slowly disappearing.
So maybe I still have a choice to skip this phone and buy another one, but soon I will be forced to buy something that's not good enough.
It's either we have better batteries or we get a better software that lasts much longer!! We really need an os that is similar to android but has longer battery and believe me android will be something from the past!

Don't get instantly mad at a person. I know you like HTC, but that's not cool.
Besides, it's just a fact that battery life of SG2 performs better than HTC sensation(and probably most of HTC high-end smartphones). It's based on many reviews and yes HTC phones have medicore or even poor battery life.
It's a valid point that Edge might gonna have battery life problem since Tegra 3 is made in 40nm node like Tegra 2.
More cores = more battery life.
All cores will operate at much less frequency giving equal or more backup than existing dual core
Why are some people crying here???
I had Samsung, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Nokia, HTC, and LG. They are all phone devices. So what???
Phone gets obsolete whenever there's a new model out, and there will always be another out regardless of which brand.
Anyway, me likey tis fone! Don't know what you guys are b*tch*n@ about. HTC doesn't make the chip. The market got a maker that makes quadcore, so there it is. You want it, buy it. You don't like it, don't get it. Simple.
You want something that last you the whole week, get a flip phone!
All you people who are claiming that the GS2 has a great battery life are fanboys and hypocrites! No logical and honest person would claim this, no way!!
You are missing the damn point again, what I'm saying is that we need more juice! We don't need high end specs! I dare all of you if you wouldn't want your phone to last 3 days instead of half a day.
Every thing has a price right? With all the new technology we have sacrificed something vital which is battery life! With out battery life the phone is dead as a brick! There is no good use of all the great specs.
So stop being children and leave ur ugly loving SG2 aside, and let's focus on what's most important for all of us which is battery life! Believe me the way cell phone companies are heading is insane! We can't go for quad core phones at least not for now! Phones are not ready, please use ur brain! Stop being sheeps! Don't accuse apple fans of being sheeps and ur doing the same thing.
Enough is enough, we should all stop buying this junk or otherwise we will all get screwed soon!
What will happen is that we will be paying more money, for something that we can't benefit from! I mean what good is a phone that won't less a couple of hours ????? wake up please! The media is not truthful with u because they need ur money.
yikes, mobile upgrades are moving FAST!
too bad it doesn't have a physical keyboard :(
no more new devices out with that have a physical keyboard
There are 4 capacitive buttons on a device that's gonna definitely run I've cream sandwich ! Why ?? Fail !

Get the update to fix battery problem with your sgs2. I can share you my battery usage chart which will prove that it lasts 2 days with moderate usage. I can read the battery chart. You work at a phone company and you don't know how to update your phone? Who's stupid?
