HTC Amaze 4G
Phone Scoop Review
Oct 17, 2011 by Eric M. Zeman
HTC continues its winning streak of killer devices for T-Mobile with the amazing Amaze 4G. It is one of the fastest phones available from T-Mobile and includes one of the best cameras that Phone Scoop has tested. read review ›
This phone has everything you could expect a flagship could do or have.
I've owned a mytouch 4g slide and a sensation 4g, you take all the good things from each phone adn smash them together and bump up the performance and you got the Amaze 4G.
Screen is exactly what the sensation had, bright colors, with excellent clarity and super responsive
Performance, with a 1.5 dual core and 1GB of ram, this phone runs much better than either phone i had, and can run every app you can possibly throw at it and multi-tast with no hiccup
camera,simply the best or one of the best out there, can't speak enough about this feature, you gotta try out for yourself, definitely one of its stronger points
HDMI/USB both here, nice huh?
Internal storage is 16gb, but you get about 10gigs because of the bloatware, one bone to pick with it, but its not an HTC thing, more T-mobile
Build Quality, this phone makes the mytouch 4g slide seem like a defect, and even gives the cool sensation a run for its money, one of the best made android phones, period.
This phone is getting ICS in the near future, so optimization to the already fast hardware will only make this phone that much more of a good looking beast
this device lives up to the bill, i manage a dancing company and this device has become my camera for photo shoots and car shows, coming from a mottolrolla cliq 2 and the side kick, the down side is that the phone cannot produce loud volume like the cliq 2 can and there are some spotty issues with static and conversation pause but it has to do with serivce area as well but none the less this device kick A^$%#

Worth the money...Great Phone!!
I have recently purchased the Amaze phone and coming from a Samsung Galaxy owner I can really say this phone is Amazing. The phone has great features that make it worth the money..
Camera 8megapixel and front 2mp
Great call quality(even with one bar)
Crisp and Clean screen making it easy to read
Indicator light on phone(if your forgetful)
Battery is decent but could be better
The phone is great and will not disappoint anyone. It has everything you need in a smart-phone from HTC sense which is user friendly and comes from a very reputable company that has some of the best androids around as my personal opinion.
Great Phone! (signal *Okay* at times)
Pros: Great for HD movies and Games, very responsive screen very touchy at times. Can be very bright during start-up but Has a good Low Brightness setting. Many Apps available not too much bloatware and Alot of Extra Space for Apps. Very Fast and Smooth. HTC Updates available and reports issues of your phone shuts off randomly or other errors to HTC for Fixes. Has WIFI Calling worked great! Front Facing Camera and FLASH Camera!
Cons: Battery is good but could be better but is expected with this phone.
Signal has problems at times example a delay in Changing carriers from T-mobile to AT&T at times...? (The back cover is part of your Antenna check that as well to see if it is seated correctly) Also T-mobile Reps mentioned TASK Killers can cause signal problems..... check with T-mobile for area signal issues to be checked into. Currently has good service 7 out of 10
Micro Charger port is odd not sure why they made it that way but works with all Micro chargers it seems.
Hope This Helps in your decision of purchase (id recommended this phone other then the above) Test out HTC Sensation I'd suggest if this changed your choice seems like a good one
I got this phone yesterday after having a Sensation which I loved! IMO, the Amaze is the sensation on steroids physically and internally. Yes the phone is a little bit bulkier than the Sensation, but it still has the high quality feel and internally, it has more memory and HTC actually makes good use of the dual core this time around. Out of the box this phone is fast, but it order to truly make use of all of the Amaze's features you'll probably have to unlock (root) the phone. I know most people won't but think to, but it really does unleash the full potential on this phone. I rooted mine and the battery life has been awesome! I'm not at 12h 4m and 14s on battery and that has been with playing music, web browsing, gps, phone calls, texting and even a couple you tube videos.
Screen -much better than the Sensation indoors and outdoors
Speed- phone has handled everything I threw at it with very little lag
Battery life- yes I rooted my phone
Memory- more internal memory means the processors can actually do their job
Signal/Call quality-I live in the DFW area so signal hasn't been a problem, but we'll see when I get to the rural parts of Texas.
3.5mm jack-it's not ideally placed as it's on a curve, but it's not enough to be a deal breaker
Great phone, I catn believe its discontinued!
Great phone, it was good at first but once I got the hang of it, it was better!
Pros: Great camera, very fast and reliable, Amazing camera and screen, great onscreen keyboard (im a big guy)
Cons: The battery didnt last a much at first but then I found how to shut off programs thru the task manager, and now the battery last alot longer They tried to change the adapter but you can still use the mini usb that everybody has (but stock one charges alot faster, even thru usb to pc)
I cant believe this cell got discontinued, no wonder I got it for free! Suckers... ha ha ha I love it, I had the mytouch4g and the mytouch 4g slide, and this one rocks!
Best deal out there
16GB of on board memory
ICS (big bonus here)
Front facing camera 2.0MP (most phones don't have)
Fast web browsing, with smooth pinch to zoom
even with Flash
Battery could be better
When you "compare" the phones on this website, the PC Sync isn't highlighted on this phone...this phone can sync to the PC, i do it every other day..."TO DO LIST" really? The HTC to do list is included...just to clarify things for people, this phone is packed full of features...i recommend it
HTC One S who?
I'll say this much for comparison purposes, The Amaze 4G has NFC, HDMI out, 16GB built in, expandable memory, removable battery, built better than most android phones coming out (i have the white one and yeah it looks better than the one s), dual-core 1.5 S3 (yeah no S4 here, but not justifiable to pay for IMO), still supported (4.0), 1GB of RAM, and the camera is still one of the best, this phone has been good to me, connection has been reliable, 4G is very consistent and the phone doesn't ever seem to slow down, i've decided to buy one for my wife, the only sad part is, she wants the white one and they don't make the white one no more, just the black, but hey great phone
ICS MADE THIS PHONE EVEN BETTER
I've had this phone for 5 months or so, its been the best android phone to date, plus with the addition of 4.0, the phone flies! Very stable release and the fluidity is much better, i definitely recommend this phone, the camera is still one of the best
Seriously, RUN AWAY. DO NOT GET THIS PHONE. Yea you will LOVE it for the first couple weeks but it won't take long for you to begin to realize it is a TERRIBLE phone... you want a PHONE don't you? Not another mini laptop? Well, you will get a bunch of dropped calls, missed calls without even hearing the ringer, missed text messages, A MILLION restarts without you touching it... THERE ARE NO PROS TO THIS PHONE.
run.. far... away.
