New videos show off HTC Amaze 4G's browser and give an overview of the device

Now we have a couple more videos for you to view, One shows the browser on the HTC Amaze 4G, and the other is a silent tour of both the hardware and the software. The model should be in T-Mobile customer's pockets on October 10th, although pricing information is still unknown. With high-end specs like the ones on the HTC Amaze 4G, it's a pleasure repeating them, starting with the 4.3 inch Super LCD display with qHD resolution. The dual-core 1.5GHz processor keeps everything humming along with help from the 1GB of RAM on board. An 8MP camera on back records video in 1080p while the 2MP front-facing camera takes self-portraits and lets you video chat with ease. And with Android 2.3.4 installed, you will be able to use the video chat feature of GTalk.
So grab the popcorn, sit back, and watch some more interesting video about the HTC Amaze 4G, a smartphone designed to, well, amaze you!
- Display 4.3" 540 x 960 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S3, Dual-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 16 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 1730 mAh(6.00h talk time)

HTC makes too many similar phones. Note to HTC, You DON'T need a new phone for every Android version!

no, but with the US release of the SGS2, HTC needs to come out with new devices to stay competitive because none of its current offerings are in the same class.

That is your opinion. Yes the SG2 has better CPU but so what. Everything else is opinion. The screen can be a pro or con. Higher resolutions compare to higher contrast. The cameras are tied. The build is on HTC side. Now software is opinion. If you have to root a phone then it not the same. So how can you prove me wrong?

Actually not only is the CPU better, but overall phone performance is significantly better. And that is what makes one phone better than another. You are right, however, about just about everything else being opinion, especially build. You may prefer phones that are thick and solid, but I prefer phones that are thin and lightweight. Say what you will about Samsung phones feeling "plasticky", but there is nothing lacking in terms of build quality. They are as durable as any other. But the fact of the matter remains that at the moment HTC simply doesn't have a phone that can go toe-to-toe with the Galaxy S II.

lol why cuz the benchmarks say so? i had the epic touch 4g actually i had 2 after i returned the first. and the screen is way oversaturated even with adjustments its fake. the colors are way off. like there tv's. there resloution is last year, the icons are huge. there gps is still not right i tested it alot. bulid quality lol is a joke!! and i would be shocked if they even roll out updates on this phone. they are working on sgs3. i will take htc and sense any day over touchwiz.. And where is the speed i keep hearing about? my evo3d 98% of the time loaded webpages faster. yes opening apps was fater on sgs2 but barely(not enough to say wow)and both were on wifi.

How is the performance significantly better? Is call quality better? What about the lock on the GPS and the wireless radio? You really don't have anything beside benchmark that test cpu to show that the SGS2 is so much better. I get it you like Samsung phone. But that does not make it significantly. Hell on Cnet prize fight the Sensation won over international SGS2. Beside the sprint one none of the other one has a LED light. Ya that is so much better.

Not sure what benchmarks like Quadrant tell you, about the quality or performance of CPU's. For example, the HTC Amaze has a noticeably higher resolution screen with 35% more pixels than the SG2. That has to affect performance on tests. No doubt if the made those phones with 640X480 screens, instead, they would both "perform" considerably better than they currently do. I for one am glad they don't make them that way.

I totally agree with you remix. I think the market is flooded with way too many android phones, buy when Samsung releases a flagship phone like the sgs2 HTC needs to do something. Since they don't have a multi-carrier flagship the best way to compete with a single super phone is to flood the consumer with choices so to the average person the sgs2 is just another phone among many. Plus they'll see more HTC devices making them more likely to buy one.

I totally agree with twenty7, I mean HTC is a veteran in the android business, they should have that one phone that stand out but it doesn't seem like they understand. It looks like they're are more focused with sense than anything else. Most of their phones look the same too. A big advantage that Samsung has is that they make their on screen and CPU to match their software and the result is excellent.

Seems a good phone. I don't think it's so close to other htc's in term of design. I like this design. If I must have SGSII or this, I'd really take this, without hesistation. Even if I know that the SGSII is better in terms of brut power. Sadly, I'm in Europe, and we will have the Sensation XE...not a bad design, but not the design I like. I prefer smart than sport design. Question of taste, ok. I wait for the Nexus prime...specifications like (and above) the GSII, but maybe with a Nexus S-like design. I find the nexus S really beautiful (except it's all in glossy plastic...I don't like this. But the curves of the Nexus S are appealing).

With quad cores just around the corner, standing pat on a 1 year old SGS 19000M is making more sense by the minute. Running a custom JVS 2.3.5 rom, 2850 quadrant scores are possible with no other tweaks, zero lock up and runs smooth as butter. Plus themed in red, its looks more refined than the best skins from the factory. With prices falling on tabs, and tabs running 3.0 or better with bigger screens and higher resolutions, maybe that's the way to get the best of this current crop of tech without being instantly obsolete.
