1080P! Finally, full HD on a phone? Do I need this? No. Do I want this? Why, certainly. Must have!

So folks this should be the end of the galaxy note era. This phone is the grandfather of iPhone 5, galaxy s3, htc one x and Motorola razrs and all other phones that we called 'beast' phones. But why do we need a mind blowing 1080p display when are eyes can't see pixels beyond 300ppi?

2500 should be good but to be honest with a 5 inch 1080p S LCD 2 screen!! it certainly wont be amazing thats for sure

but at least they didnt make themselves look retarded by putting a 2100 mAh battery this time lol

actually, the 1080 display would have been more reasonable on the galaxy note 2..........htc has pushed it into this 5 inch phone because that would make it the only phone of its kind, its good for marketing....

The end of the Galaxy Note era? Seriously? Whichever phone you prefer is your choice, but get real. There's no possible way this phone will sell better than the Note just on Verizon. Let alone the fact that the Note will be available on the other 3 major carriers, too. The Note already has the recognition. At this point, everyone else is just trying to play catch up.

Krait quad core is the boss accept it. Only if apple could have used that swift architecture in a quad core processor we would have two bosses but too bad they're aim was to beat tegra and exynos. Anyway, this phone is from the future- note 2 has a 720p display this thing has 1080p. Best of all, it crushes the note 2 in design. Good work HTC. I hope you, the true competitor to apple rise.

I never said the S4 pro wasn't a faster processor. Of course it is, but how much of that are you gonna notice in real-world computing? You're not. They're both gonna be lag-free phones, so who cares, really? Also, you just compared 720 vs. 1080 on 5 in screens. OMG, wow. I don't think anyone's gonna be complaining & most eyes won't perceive the difference anyway. Software is where the Note kills this phone. Multi-window, S-Beam, Stylus apps, & more. I think this will be a great phone. No doubt. But, HTC does nothing to differentiate themselves from the competition elsewhere. We'll end up seeing that processor in so many different phones. Show me an awesome user experience. Something that stands out.This will be another One X. A great phone that could have been so much better & just won't see any critical success in the market.

the point is....this will not fulfill the purpose of phablet but note 2 does it perfectly.....
note 2 wins anyway.......

Looks like the REZOUND I just sold last week. By the way, what were those God-awful pictures taken with? They're just hideous quality.

(My guess is, because of the strange hue, they were taken with an iPhone 5)

"My guess is, because of the strange hue, they were taken with an iPhone 5"

GIven the lens flare (the hue you are referring to), you could be on to something. Wouldn't that be a crack-up (tipster could have taken a better photo with another Android phone...)?
