New naming scheme

I had a customer with a heavy accent call me asking about this. He just couldn't grasp that The One, the One S, and the at&t phone the One X, were different devices. I think I spoke to him for about half an hour trying damn hard to explain to him these are totally separate devices. I didn't get through to him. Anyways, they need a new naming scheme pronto. What will their phone names be like in a few years? The One XXVC+- Type R? Too much to remember for a customer.

4.3 Update

This update cannot be downloaded OTA. You are required to be connected to wifi due to the size (around 560mb). While trying to download it at work, I was told (it wasn't a suggestion) to connect to wifi before it would begin.

The end of expandable memory?

I should probably get rid of my SII in favor of an SIII and keep it forever. I'm starting to think it's the last good phone with expandable memory. Sad

The Pattern Is Backwards.

So, let me get this straight. The low end, throw away phones get a removable battery, while the high end phones have imbedded so you can't ever get to it in chance there is a problem?

Nice! How embarrassing that someone with a low end phone can carry on business in case of a battery issue but those with high end, are rendered useless until returned or repaired. Who is the sucker now? The manufacturer or the consumer?

What should I do?

I love the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. It is one of the worst phone builds every (super cheap plastic, broken twice so far) but (in my opinion it has the most amazing software (it has 6 or 7 features that I use that most Android don't offer custom to Samsung)).

So now, here come the HTC One, by far one of the most beautiful phones in aluminum (again, just a personal opinion). However, one would have to be crazy to not put a cover/case on it. I always roll my eyes when I see people carrying their Iphone 5's (with an $800 value) without a case. No matter how careful you are, someone will bump you and then it flies away.

So, if I was careful enough (which I am not) to not need a case, I would snap up the HTC One immediately, even though I w...

No Verizon Nexus?

It stinks that the GS4 and HTC One Nexus versions are not being made available for Verizon customers. Those phones look amazing but I refuse to go to AT&T or T-Mobile.

re: and only slightl better?

Surprised Just a slightly better version of the One X+? Slightly longer batter (2300 vs 2100) and better screen (but still not OLED) and processor. Did I miss anything?

And why going backwards with the names- shouldn't this have been the HTC TWO Cool

You must have your old receipt for your trade in phone

From their fine print:

"Used Smartphone Devices that are sent in that do not qualify either because a) the model of used Device is not eligible or b) the Device is not in the condition stated or c) does not have a qualifying Proof of Purchase will not be eligible for Program and will be recycled without any payment and any OEM incentives are forfeited. After your mail-in your used Device, you cannot get it back, even if you return the merchandise you purchased."

Can Blinkfeed be turned off/set to WiFi only?

I don't have unlimited data... Blinkfeed sounds nice, but I'd like to be able to control its data usage.

Thanks!

initial setup (sprint)

hope the s4 doesn't "make" you provide a samsung account like the htc one does with an htc account.

atleast with the sprint version our customer had to either sign in with facebook or htc account

but we had 3 and sold 3 pretty fast.

nice phone though

Cannot be installed on HTC One yet

Why is everyone saying this can be installed on the HTC One. You can download it now but it doesn't work. Just redirects you to the Facebook App. Eh?

messenger

I tried Facebook home to put simply it sucks, messenger on the other hand I have set to as my main sms app and it's nice because the chat head feature still works with normal text messages.

Why are ALL phones too big?

I'm so glad you came out and said how you feel 4.7" phones are too big! I entirely agree and really feel like the 4" screen on my phone is already beyond the limit of what I'd ideally prefer. The Droid 2 with it's 3.8" screen and qwerty keyboard remains the PERFECT size for a smartphone imo and I really wish there was anything remotely close to that coming out this year. I feel like there is a huge hole in the Android ecosystem for smaller phones with and without physical keyboards as all phones are giant, boring slabs I can't use with one hand.

No Sprint LTE in San Francisco? Huh?

Sensorly definitely indicates otherwise:

Any reviewer who cannot locate any Sprint LTE in San Francisco for testing is incompetent, lazy, or has defective equipment.

Not a good showing, Phone Scoop...

Can someone verify for sure which WCDMA/UMTS bands are in this unit.

For the Sprint model, Phonescoop says 1900/2100; Engadget says 700/AWS.

Both of these however are rather unusual combinations (usually it's 850/1900/2100 or 850/900/1900/2100).

Does anyone know for sure?

network performance.

Really a shame you werent able to test this phone where LTE is available such as in most of TX for example or part of California LA has had a 4G LTE signal for Sprint phones.

Saw that on a friends Sprint phone. Performed pretty well. Definitely smoked my Tmobile 3G (HSPA+) data speeds when we compared the two.

When I compare ATT LTE to my Tmobile 3G (HSPA+) its pretty sad that they are pretty much the same noticed it is pretty inconsistent ATT LTE.

Have nothing bad to say about Verizon LTE its just on point every time!
