I LOVE HTC, and If this phone was coming to sprint I might have waited for its release or atleast for some reviews to come out to see whats up. I am currently going to grab the Gn2 on Sprints launch date on the 25th. I personally like Sense UI over Touchwiz(from what i have seen i haven't personally used touchwiz for more then 30seconds or demo'ing at the store), Back when the gs3 launched and there was not talks of any of these new phablets I was looking into picking up the HTC Evo 4G LTE. It was neck and neck with the gs3 but it took it in the benchmarks along with the UI being just the slightest bit smoother.

But now that they are flooding the market with quadcores how can you possibly settle for anything less. Now if Sprint picked up the LTE + I would be jumping on that over the Note2(or it might atleast make me spend 4-5hours vigorously testing both phones in hand IF it were to come to sprint. But after dealing with verizon and AT&T's customer service I will NOT switch carriers for any phone. I know the competition will always come out with something within a month or two max, that is equivalent or better. Plus I have been with Sprint for some time now and get great deals and service.

Regardless of what it says on paper I live up in the NW and when I go to the coast to ride in the Dunes on the quads/dirtbikes I have service out in the Bay. Where as everyone camping with me that has Verizon or AT&T with various differnt phones do not have service and either have to drive a few miles into town or borrow my phone. I can also sit there at the campfire and direct connect with my employees back in Portland with ease.. Sprint FTW

There is still so much that they have not proved with their phones to jump in bed with them again. I will wait to see the reviews on this one.

Wait, J Butterfly has LCD3. Wouldn't this be 3 also, not 2?
And why is there a question about the main shooter, the picture clearly states 8MP.

Yes, it's LCD3, not 2. Dunno why they keep on posting "2". LOL

I really wish Verizon would just stamp on their branding of their devices on the backs of phones vs both back and front. In fact I wish all carriers would start doing this on all their high end devices.

NO! Verizon wants everyone to know that YOU'RE THEIR BITCH!! I'm pissed about it too, My RAZR has that HIDEOUS logo on the front as well. I installed a Martin Fields screen protector and it makes the screen appear darker (due to the moderate anti reflective coating) and in the otterbox commuter that phone looks SOOOO beautiful, 'cept for that damn logo.

I've always had some interest in HTC devices, they always had a premium feel, especially the HTC Titan (which was a windows phone) I like it when they didn't use rubberized components, just metal and glass. The Rezound didn't impress me much, But I'm very interested in this device. I told myself the next Android Device I buy MUST have at least 2gb of RAM after seeing how well the SGSIII runs with it.

It would have been a smart move to include NFC functionality, Its a beautiful phone tho.

HTC's problem stems from the fact they are trying to be like Big Fruity. 1 phone 1 carrier. Release this beast to ALL.. Follow Sammy's lead. The S3 and Note Deuce is released to more than one.

The battery is a major drawback to a 1080 phone. No removable battery nor a sd card slot is a non-starter here. IMHO..

HTC's body construct is 2nd to none. But the above is a negative

It's easy to jump the gun... Let's not do that...

Instead of being judgmental by simply looking at the size of the battery, we should wait for it to releases & see how it holds its own

On SD card... How do u know it does not have one?

the one x fell for that. that's why it lost to S3 in sales and everything else except for that premium build

no microSD slot, yet it still outperforms the Galaxy S 3.

The SLCD3 should suck less power than SLCD3, so should the S4 Pro... I think 2500 mAh battery should be enough to get you round the day. It has an 8Mp rear camera and an 2Mp front with 88° wide angle. I see from the photos that the IrDa has been removed. Hope it's waterproof anyway and that it stuck with the microSD slot like the J Butterfly. Now all it needs to do is to launch globally as the Nexus 5 with on-screen keys an less bezel. ;)
