Phone update

I have had phone almost since it came out.
I bought it cause I wanted a phone with a large screen, the screen is the best feature, it was a little buggy some things like the wifi hot did not work and that is why I bought this phone cause I have a laptop, the camera would close the phone would restart, it did not have a good signal.
I went to the tmobile store and they gave me a new sim card and it seemed to have a better 4g signal bit still buggy,
Since I did the software update to ICS android it seems to have fixed most of the phones issues, except it seems that it still does not have a great 4g signal, and it seems to use the battery even faster, so I go into the settings and switch to 2g and battery last all day,
I think the problem ...

NFC Capability

I love the NFC function on the Amaze. I am using the NXP Tag Writer App and the NFC Task Launcher App along with tags from
http://www.buynfctags.com » .
They have a variety of stickers, key chains, cards, etc.
I have tags where I can just tap it and it will open up Facebook, turn on my alarms, and turn on/off my wi-fi. I also have tags that just store my contact information so I can give to other people.

camera / phone issues??

I was using the camera the other day and went to take a pic and touched the screen and it went from the camera app to the home screen?

I am trying to like this phone but it seems buggy.

I tapped on the home screen the screen it was black then realized it seemed off so I touched the power button and it came on?

Lacking Support

So let me get this straight... HTC has completely abandoned their not even 2 year old EVO 4G for upgrades? Have abandoned their not even a year old Glacier (MyTouch 4G) for upgrades, and is favoring the Sensation line up OVER the Amaze? REALLY?

There is a reason HTC is not the leader anymore.

While I used to HATE Samsung, and I still wont use anything with TouchWiz, Id rather buy a Samsung phone and root it and customize it than buy another HTC phone. Why? Cause at the end of the day, Samsung is learning to support their line up longer, and HTC has discovered they dont have to....but look where it got them!

Id rather go with a company that will support updates (and yes these phones BOTH have enough space and power) than stick with ...

This is why HTC rocks!

They are much more consumer oriented in the way they unlocked bootloaders and now at least giving a timeline in their planned ICS roll out. Motorola understandably has their reasons but can they really be justified in light of what HTC is doing?

form

I see it seems like I am the only one out their with an amaze, and I don't want to seem like I am bashing the phone but the more you use a product the more you find how it works and feels.
ok that said the the form the size is not to bad a little larger than my last phone a mytouch, but it has a bigger screen, what I wanted, But the metal plastic case is kind of slippery in your hand and a little hard to hold onto and may be easy to drop. my mytouch had a kind of rubberized outer edge that made it easy to hold onto.
The buttons, well the only ones that are good are the camera and video buttons they are in a good location on the phone and they work like they are supposed to.
The power button and the volume buttons, well maybe these button...

I wonder...

If they'll do pure ICS, or hose it with Sense. :/ I like HTC devices, their build quality, etc - but not Sense.

What about....

...the original Evo 4G? I'm suspecting the hardware requirements are a bit "too powerful" for the original Evo 4G and as it is, I'm due for my upgrade here in Jan 2012. Once I see a list of phones OTHER THAN THE CURRENT GALAXY NEXUS S that begin to have it, I'll consider. I'm steering far clear from Samsung for very good reason.....they don't know how or when the right time is to get their Android OS Updates out their to the Market. It was quite evident with the Galaxy S and prior phones from their line.

WCDMA bands

Does this T-Mo phone really have the 850 and 1900 MHz WCDMA bands as the specs here indicate? I see different specs depending where I look, even on the T-Mo web sites. The following link, for instance even adds the 900 MHz band:
http://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-2614 »
On the other hand,the following link
http://www.t-mobile.com/shop/Phones/cell-phone-detai ... »
only shows the usual T-Mo UMTS bands I & IV. So what is it really?

Wifi Calling is on board

In fact the Amaze uses the same "special sim" as the Galaxy S II to achieve a newer, smoother wifi calling experience, so you must use the SIM in the retail box if you want wifi calling.

(Apparently most live demos and review units are using a standard 4G sim though, which seems odd.)
