    Default Not interested

    There is nothing here... Still a max of 64GB available, still no MicroSD, no inductive charging, marginally better camera, slightly larger battery, larger screen...

    I don't see anything here to make me want to switch from a One X+, or a Samsung GSIII, or an iPhone for that matter....

    There is no innovation happening, maybe on the camera front but only slightly. Samsung is the only one doing anything close to innovating and even that is marginal. Mfg's still haven't learned that to beat Apple you have to innovate and give people things that don't exist on any other device today and this is why Apple can still dominate the market with only minor tweaks to their devices every year because no one is competing...

    It's definitely a big step up.

    To quote (somewhat) one of my favorite movies of all time: "If you [need more than 64GB storage], then I am Mickey Mouse!"

    In all seriousness, though, how do you define innovation? We've reached a pinnacle where things can only improve on the margin. We can cram more pixels into the display, we can make it flexible, we can up the camera quality, we can increase the storage, we can add another four cores... In the end, how do you even define innovation? A smartphone, in essence, is a smartphone, and can only be made better through "marginal" innovations. Perhaps you want Google Glass? That defines a whole new product line. But it's no longer a "smartphone" per se. I think HTC did a wonderful job to create an incredible phone. What else could they have done? Turn the phone into an autobot that could blow rush hour traffic away? Other then that, I think it's plenty "innovative" relative to the current smartphone market.

    The HTC has an infrared power button which will double as a TV remote.

    You think that's not innovating? Ok, fine, then show me what other smartphone has an infrared power button, hmmm?

    that's what i thought when I bought my Samsung Galaxy 2 7.0 tablet with infrared out. Cool feature... but I only used it once during the last several months.

    when you got your eyes on the TV and your hands on your lady sitting next to you, the last thing you want to do is to use a smartphone/tablet to control the TV.

    Why not you embarrassed?

    My tablet is a much better remote for sky than the actual remote itself

    64GB isn't enough?

    I'm sorry, but just what in the world are you storing on your phone where 64GB isn't enough?

    "How dare he?" That's what's cool about innovation - you can't always predict what's next.

    What exactly was innovative about the s3? 2gig of ram? Some little software things? That's it. No new display. No new anything really. Just a good mix of what we already had.

    I guess apple ppl(and arguably Samsung ppl these days) gauge innovation by number of units sold...

    Honestly, I gave Samsung a try for my first Android phone, but now that the ante has been upped in storage space here. I'm thinking my next just might be HTC. The 64gb black version will be hard to beat!

    It's not innovative. Sony has smartphones with IR blasters in them, and I think their tablets had them as well. They can do the same thing, too (double up as remotes).

    Nothing innovative in that.

    I'd rather have 64GB of onboard storage since you can't install apps on an SD card.

    Apps, Games, eBooks, Music, Magazines, Documents, Videos, Podcasts (Video and Audio), Pictures (though at 4MP, they won't be as huge as some current smartphones that don't over-compress like HTC is known to do), Cached YouTube Watch Later Lists, etc.

    These things tend to weigh a lot, you know...

    Most people get more than they need, to be safe that they won't be forced to buy another handset if their requirements overrun the device capacity.

    IIRC, only AT&T said they'd be carrying both the 32GB and 64GB models. Do you think T-Mobile and/or Sprint would leave out a model?

    So really no SD card is why u aren't interested. Is their any phone that has more than 64gb of onboard storage?
