HTC always makes these great looking phones... And then they ruin them by adding hardware buttons and weak batteries. This could have been so beautiful.

2020 mA battery for a 1080p display? probably they are kidding....

That's a hilariously awful name, guess it kinda maybe makes sense for the market though. Seems to me like that resolution is a bit overkill but as long as all the other factors are in place I can't complain. With that kinda of square...inchage though, you'd think they could squeeze in a bigger battery.

2 things wrong with it 1. The alphabet game continues with another odd letter....J?? Why couldnt they just call it the HTC Butterfly? 2. Of course, the 2020 mAh battery! There really is no explanation for why they would chose, YET AGAIN, another small battery......This time is much worse, a 5 inch screen with 1080p resolution and they chose the smallest battery one could find :(

Japanese know how to make concept phone come true, but still they want profits... 2020mah is not surprising tho :)

Why does this phone say "with Google" like the LG nexus... The One X or One X+ dont say it...

for those who are saying a 2020mah battery will boo us off, think again this beast has a s4 quad with good power management and also with sense 4+ which has tweaks(although i really hate it no multitasking iz s**t). say the battery will most probably last about 6-7 hours like the one x but i really also think they should really add in at least 2500mah to step up HTC's game.everything is good (2gb ram and suprisingly sd slot)

Had someone told me a year ago that this kind of display will reach market by the end of 2012 I'd call BS. Freaking amazing!!

May be the best phablet in the near future... HTC has really played hard on Samsung Note II

*fangirl scream* This is too awesome to be true. So many smartphone choices, so little money. I hate OEMs for this
