1080p 5 inch? 440 ppi. Sigh. I get numbers are everything to the average consumer, and would gladly take 1080p over 720p, but this is too much.

yeah, anything over say...320ppi would really just use voltage unnecessarily.

While you might be right, I'd still like to see it first.

I wonder if Verizon will come up with a HTC One X version?

Not sure why the downers on the Rezound I own this phone after taking back the GN I had for a week due to no data connection. I've owned several smart phones over the past few years and I will say my rezound has been the best phone I've ever owned. Not one problem so far heck not even a call into tech support. This phone has been badly under rated and put on the back burner for no reason what so ever. I'm running ICS and the latest global ruu leak, I'm non rooted as well and since the last global ruu leak my battery life has at least doubled. Browsing many forums if one would take the time this phone has had less issues over any phone that's been released, even over the latest Sammy gsIII which I never understood why folks buy into a plastic phone with lack luster radios. Anyhow I hope this new phone HTC brings to the table stays on top for a long time.

I'm with you. I sold my Rezound and have GIII now. I miss HTC every day. Can't wait for this rumored one to come out so I can get rid of this Sammy crap.

What's wrong with the gs3? I have a LG Spectrum and I was thinking of getting the gs3.

Maybe you'll love it after LG. I just feel like my old Rezound is still a better phone. I, like jphillips, never had one problem with it. The GIII, for example, drops wifi and can't find it again. The exact same problem I have on my old GTab 10.1. You'd think they would fix it by now on their so called "king of android". And they are well aware of the problem.

The noise cancellation on the Rezound is very effective. Much better than that on my Droid Bionic, Droid charge and Thunderbolt. The earpiece is also nice and loud which could only be matched by the Droid Charge and Thunderbolt. It would've been nice if the phone shipped with a battery rated at 1800 mAH or better.

Hopefully HTC will remedy these faults while keeping the good aspects of their phones.

After owning a Nexus S 4G, AND a Galaxy Nexus, I wont buy Samsung again. They are just cheaply made. HTC is a more solid phone, but what I really like is that the radios are better. Wifi reach, signal, bluetooth etc. Motorola is the best in terms of radios but Sammy is def the weakest.

KIES lol... the Samsung Rep came in to give us training on the new touchwiz features. He asked "how many of you know what Kies is". I was the only one that raised my hand. He then said, "you sir, can you tell me what feature you like about Kies"

I said, "Kies makes Rooting sooo much easier"
He looked at me -_- and said, Im gonna pretend I didnt hear that. Whole group laughed xD

funny story. xD
really though Kies is a pain in the ass to use...
i have a friend trying to do the ICS update for her Captivate Glide and Kies isn't working for her even though she's doing everything right it seems so now i'm gonna have to meet her and do it myself. -_-

its not the radio that messes up HTC phones. its the metal body that messes up the radio

Samsung radios are just junk and the wifi on them won't stay connected. What good are all those specs if the phone can't be used as it should be with the crappy radios installed in them. With my Rezound I get 4g signal where the GN I had wouldn't even get 3g. Like others said if HTC had put a bigger battery in this phone it wouldn't had got put on the back burner, but now with the global update I'd say many would be very happy with the stock battery.

i have a Nexus and an SIII and while the SIII stays connected just fine the Nexus does seem to have some difficulty.

I love my Rezound as well. Since the 4.0 update I've not had any problems with it, and battery life has improved as well. Still wish it was better, but nothing shy of the Maxx would help me as I tend to be a heavy data user, demoing my phone to customers and using it for personal entertainment during down time.

Might be a good while before I get another phone, b/c the phablets just don't interest me, and I like HTC, so unless I get a great deal on the Incredible 4G(underrated phone as well, imo), no desire to spend the money.

I'm rollin with the DROIDInc 4G and really like the 2150 mAh battery, it gives it some heft and makes it last all day...its a little beast. But the stock size gives it a nice slim form and last 16 hrs easy on 4G lte. I'm curious about this 5" beast though so I might have to upgrade the wife with the Inc4 :-)

I applaud Htc for it's 1080p 5inch smartphone this only pushes innovation to the Maxx. I just wish that HTC would take the bull by the horns and announce it's own product and tell Verizon when it has to be released. Not allow Verizon to control any aspect of this launched product. But they won't ONLY SAMSUNG controls that concept. I wish Htc well but I roll with Samsung and my Galaxy S3 and will be buying the Galaxy Note 2 when it lands on Tmobile day one. I will have the best of both worlds the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2.

This needs to be a global release if it's really what the rumors make it to be.

I see no reason why this won't beat the galaxy note 2. HTC would really have to mess something up
