No SD Card slot and iffy support

I really wanted to like this phone HTC, I really did. I have been looking for something to replace my Nexus S but this just won't cut it. 16 GB was fine two years ago, but now I need at least 32 GB (large music collection) and I want it in a smaller physical package.

My wife has a HTC One S that you stopped supporting. It doesn't imbue consumers with a lot of confidence when you drop support for a device that is not even two years old.

Pros & Cons..

I like the reduced size but:
Cons: Cool
1> The sides are plastic (unlike the One)
2> No camera stabilization
3> Smaller battery (waiting for review on how this will effect performance)
4> No NFC
5> No TV remote ( I dont use anyway)

Pros: Very Happy
1> smaller size (speaks for itself)
2> Screen res. is best for the screen size

Yikes. Which company in Europe operates LTE at such a ridiculously high frequency? You can forget about that signal penetrating through buildings unless they have a tower on every block. Shocked
No idea, it also says Canada but I'm not aware of any Canadian carriers that operate at that frequency.

Sounds like sprint's 2.5Ghz spectrum... great for wide open areas, probably work well in a stadium-like area, but if somebody holds up toilet ...
That's actually Europe's "official" 4G frequency band. Some of the first LTE networks used that.
