Good: yet another andrain mobile
Bad: andrain and it's just like every other bland touch screen movile
Comment: Another pointless android mobile with 1 day max battery life and a many useless apps and if it's dropped it breaks.
Just give us a mobile with t9 Talk Text Email Web and Nav with 5 day battery life .... and a 3 inch screen would be fine too.....
So to sum this one up
Pointless and smart phones are done ..... we've all tried them and they don't do TTEWN very well ...
Good: Metal body, premium feel
Bad: Blinkfeed, non removable battery, short battery, no sd card slot.
Comment: HTC messed this up on 2 accounts: one is non removable and small battery (2300 mah?). Add to it they gave a feature which is copy of flipboard but less useful. Cant be customized (HTC has like 10 partners, you cant pull rss feeds urself), cant be removed and hogs the battery. The SD card slot is mere annoyance but other two factors kill this fone. Bad battery and bloatware (anything I do not wish to use is bloat, here it sits as my homescreen. No thanks)
Good: Metal chassis and impressive specs
Bad: Will probably have a high price, small(ish) battery, the screen.
Comment: I love that the technology to have a 446ppi screen exists - but I don't see any practical application for it. Most research suggests that the human eye can't distinguish individual pixels when the ppi is above 300. So a screen that crisp just seems like an unnecessary power drain to me. But maybe that's a personal thing. In terms of the combination of specs and price, I still don't think anything outdoes the Nexus 4. Although I do love the metal design :)
Good: Build quality
Bad: No standout features, mediocre camera and irritating the blinkfeed
Comment: As stated above
Good: i own the desire hd, and am very happy with it nontheless no upgrade to Android 4. had planned on the One X+, but this i definatly woth the wait.
Bad: I kind of don't like not being able to change or get rid of blinkfeed.
Comment: At the end of day i am loyal to HTC, and this is a must have for me!
Comment: This box needs an "Undecided" button, as I'm not sure if I want it yet, but it is also "not for me" either.
I have to say that I too fond this article unreasonably negative, but what should we expect from a biased GIII fanboy?
I get the impression that C|Net try to put out one article a day to wind up the fanboys of either Apple, HTC or Galaxy, as they get the most feedback, as it all goes downhill faster than an Irish wake.
Bottom like is, this review seems too biased to trust and I will have to go look elsewhere for an opinion I can trust. It is the camera that is giving me greatest regret, if this example is true and un-rigged, I will greatly disappointed, that after all this time HTC still can't put a decent camera in their flagship phone.
Good: Design / Style / Speed
Bad: three dots are back
Comment: No plastic in sight :-)
Good: build quality, SPEAKERS!
Bad: lack of expandable memory
Comment: Front facing stereo Beats Audio amplified speakers? yes please. plus it feels awesome to hold and solid, everything else it does well is just the icing on the cake! it was this or the s4...this wins hands down.
Comment: By the way, it's got 469 PPI not 446 and it's the sharpest on paper at least although you might not see a difference from 441 PPI (Standard 5"). You can change the Blinkfeed screen as a different panel and use something else as your home screen panel which should solve your Blinkfeed on your home screen problem.
You need to spend some tine with it before post major reviews, it's more like as if you are competing with other tech review sites.
Good: BUILT QUALITY EXCELLENT , BRILLIANT SPEAKER, IR,AND NICE FEED AT DISPLAY .
Comment: ITS MORE PREMIUM LOOKING THAN SAMSUNG S4 .
