    The pen is the only thing it won't do. Everything else should be better (display quality, internals, camera).

    Maybe maybe not given HTC track record and if u don't think that Samsung put this out for competition not only for the ip5 but that new dlx then u is under the influence lol

    I gotta say for me it is about specs mostly.

    One. I'm never stock so unlockable bootloader is a must as is the ability to root.

    Two. Software can be changed so why not buy a phone with decent specs for the time and run it like a madman.

    Exactly I like the hardware of my phone tw wasn't a factor seeing as I already knew I was rooting and flashing a asop rom but I wanted the duel core and 1.2 processor to play my n64 and psx games and stream music and tv

    Gotta remember bootloaders and make sure there is an unlock method and rooting for other oem's making Sammy a clear cut winner to most of the dev community as far as root freindly.

    I think HTC is awesome. I had a one x,and switched to a galaxy s3 cause I thought it would be better then the one x. And in MY extent,its not that great. I switched back to my one x after 4 weeks with the s3. HTC did things right with the one x. I don't care if they are making other better phones,I'm keeping my one x for a bit.

    This is probably a late reply. I have had two HTC phones in a row. HTC hero & then the Inspire. HTC hero was kind of a landmark phone and I enjoyed my Inspire but my gosh, what a battery hog. I kept two extra batteries and quite often, had to use them or keep the phone on a charger. I think the sense OS is a real battery hog and tends to slow their phones down too. It just draws too much on system resources. And the nonremovable battery was definitely a deal breaker for me. I just got the galaxy S3 and right now at around noon, its still at 87%. (I'm not a heavy user particularly when I'm at work) With the same amount of use, my Inspire would be ayt 50% and a lot of times, way below 50% and I'd end up putting it on the charger to get through the rest of the day. That's my opinion.

    Never too late friend,but I agree. My one x doesn't last me very long. The one thing I did like of the Gs3 was the battery,I got 16hrs outta it. I get about 7 out of my one x. Unplugged at 6 and at 1 my battery is dying. With the s3 I had about 70-80% left at 3.

    I'm still routinely getting 18 hours.

    Since you say you are not a heavy user, maybe you should find and disabled some of the bloatware on the HOX that is using the battery and radios.

    I had the same problem with battery drain when listening to music. The problem for me turned out to be the media server or service process that was running. This kept the phone in the stay awake state, thus the unusual battery drain.

    I had the HTC One X but didn't like it because of no menu button, no SD card slot also you couldn't remove the backing so therefore didn't have access to the battery. Some people will say that those are minor issues but to me this was enough to exchange it for another phone. Now I have an HTC Vivid and love it.

    Menu button was added in the new update. They're just following ICS/JB Guidelines....

    The update reached International One Xs loong ago. And it was on AT&T phones a few months ago too. Go to settings-display,buttons, and gestures, don't you have options for Changing buttons? Scroll down a bit?

    I do love the camera in HTC, along with this being my first HTC phone. The camera is crazy. It's awesome.

    Battery does die kinda fast, but it seems a lot of phones battery seems to start going down. My other phone, Optimus V, use to get 21hours with music and now it only gets 9.


    With this phone, I'm down to 40-80 percent at the end of school. Unplugged at 7 and get home by 3:20. Normally I survive about 12 hours with it. Music kills battery heavy.




    I don't understand why people in the S lll complain about a battery drain. They have about 15h and call it a battery drain with full usage almost non stop. Its just one of those things....

    Very clutch! I have had this phone for 24 hours. The menu button on my Optimus S was a must for many things I have used for well over 1 year. Recent apps button, while nice, not so much.
