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:

2600MHz???

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. 😳
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.
