Uh! Can some company make a small ICS phone considering that now we have soft keys? HTC you made a small phone(considering the screen size) with the HD2. Try again with Android without the buttons on the front.

All white phone? Apple copyright/patented that already. LMAO! Probably, who knows. I still haven't seen an all white phone (minus the screen).

What about the mune button for legacy apps? How could we access the menu in these apps while there is no dedicated capacitive button ? I am really surprised that no one of the tech blog sites has addressed the issue.

HTC have a solution and it's lame. A semi-transparent overlay with a centered menu button that appears at the bottom of the screen when needed. Yes, so you now have two rows of buttons.

As an AT&T customer...I disappointed by the swap from quad to dual core on this top tier phone...Would prefer to have the quad core and no LTE. (Besides; the AT&T roll out of LTE seems far behind Verizon.

The dual core being used is actually faster than the tegra 3, and widely considered better.

wait wait wait.. am i the only one that caught that.. the T3 version is international only? The American ATT version is LTE and Crapdragon!?!?!?!??!?!

WTF.
FAIL.
So basically, instead of ushering in the new generation of massive spec'ed smartphones, HTC is basically creating an answer to the skyrocket HD.. ugh.

dont get me wrong. The improvements with the S4 are going to be nice and all, but i really got all excited when they said it was a T3 device... until they said it was an international only T3 device. I really wish that carriers would quit choosing a slightly faster internet speed (that you cant even notice at that point) over real world performance.

Yea, actually, it has.. at least by Qualcomm. And do you know which chipset they didnt show matching up against the S4 dual core? The T3 quad core. Thats because the T3 blows it away in performance. More cores, bigger GPU. They are not in the same category.
I realize your a big fanboy of HTC and all, but which would you rather have in your new $300 phone.. dual or quad core? especially knowing the quad core is in the international version

Looks like HTC is taking a page from samsung in keeping 1 phone with multiple chipsets in it. And thats not a good thing.
