Excerpt: I've owned this phone since 1.5 years and it hasn't ever disappointed me, except at some instances I've covered below. Overall, it's a good phone for simple users, who are not looking for a phone for hard gaming, for heavy web browsing or that can carry a lot of apps simultaneously.
Pros: Screen resolution, Dual LED flash, SD card extension slot, Lots of RAM, NFC, Easy to root
Cons: Cell reception, Battery, Weight, Does not update to Jelly Bean, Does not support USB OTG, Does not have multiple gestures support like Galaxy S3, Default launcher eats a lot of RAM, Apex launcher preferred, GPU isn't as great as that of iPhone 4
Excerpt: Great phone for the two years I've had it. Runs great and really smooth. Camera takes amazing quality pictures, screen is nice and clear even though it's not 720p. Same internal components as Sensation XE and One S however I think it's the best out of the 3.
Pros: Comfortable design, Camera, Colors on display look really nice, Internal speaker, not the loudest, but really good quality sound, NFC, MHL compatible for HDMI output, Removable battery, MicroSD card slot, works with 64GB cards, 4G connectivity, Dedicated camcorder button on side
Great hardware but overlooked by the developer community

Summary: I've owned this phone for a bit over a year and a half now and been very pleased with it on the whole. It's fast, the screen is beautiful and vibrant, the camera works very well, and I really like the metal construction of it- it looks fantastic and feels quite a bit more solid than a typical...
Summary: I'm using this with a SIM card from the Straight-Talk wireless network. It took me a few hours to understand how to set this phone up with the Straight-Talk carrier, but I now have a really fast (4G compared to my old 1440baud 3G) service on the Straight Talk network for only $45 a month.
Summary: I had this for over an year now. The phone is okay, nice design, good performance overall. It is quite heavy and the battery does not last long. I bought new battery a little bit bigger than the previous one, it lasts about double the time now.
Summary: When we looked for our 1st smartphone the Iphone4 was coming out. We chose the HTC for its processor, memory and was geeting the Google Ice Cream update w/o tje Apple price tag. This phone about 1 year later is still very good, fast. well featured, an ok battery life for such a smart phone.
Summary: When you consider buying a handset out of contract, the $400-700 price tag can be quite a shocker. HTC has really done an amazing job with the Amaze 4G, but it is already out-shined, out-classed and out-done by the recently announced HTC One series devices.
Excerpt: Let's get this straight. As computer-like smart phones go, this one does a lot. And, the camera is nice. I frequently blind people with the flash. It does the big things well. But let's talk about the little things. I have stepped "up" from the 3g slide. I kept it in the HTC family for the sense ui.
Pros: the things it does. camera, media, surf.
Cons: made more complex than older phones., battery is really bad.
