You shouldn't HAVE to root your phone, change the kernel, and turn off half of the features of the phone just to get good battery life. If the phone company designs a phone with features included, the battery should be able to handle those features being used throughout the day and not die on you around lunch time. I would equate this to buying a diesel full ton pickup truck only to have a passenger car transmission put in it. What good is having all that torque and towing power with a transmission that will never allow you to do anything other than feather the throttle while not even towing or hauling anything.
It all boils down to having a balanced design. The phone looks great on a spec sheet, with the exception to the battery.
Personally, I wouldn't be interested in the "phablet" because of the size. I want something smaller for myself.

I don't have to root my phone or change my kernel. I was already satisfied with my phone while it was on stock when it comes to battery life that I had it for the first week. I had absolutely no problems. I proceeded to root because it's what I've been doing since I've had my G1. And since I've already rooted and custom ROM'd I'm not going to go back to stock because I want my titanium backup files from previous phones.

I never mentioned anything about having to root to improve my battery life, oh no. But definitely rooting and custom ROM'ing improves battery drastically where I have 40-55% battery left over with 2.5 - 3 hours of on-screen usage. Whereas before I would end the day with 34% or so.

I know people who use a Galaxy Nexus (GSM) and they're able to withstand a whole day of usage being on stock. You underestimate the battery life when it comes to HSPA+ devices, you have your experiences with LTE so don't step onto my ground and then second judge me when you haven't used a device with HSPA+ and not LTE.

So just stop talking, you're making yourself look foolish.
LTE uses more battery, it's just the way of that technology. HSPA+ uses less. It's a known fact.

So... It's an HTC One X with a larger screen. That's pretty much it, actually. Battery life on the One X itself is so-so (better, if you have a custom kernel installed) but with a 4 inch screen its sure to suck the life out of a battery in no time.

I really like it, I just wonder if this time HTC will keep to their word about allowing S-Off on their devices.

Have you seen the other HTC models released recently within the past two years?(except for some units like the ChaCha) They look mostly the same. Seems like an HTC personality, unlike Sony/SE which mostly release different handset looks. So if you spot a phone from a distance, you can say, hey that's a htc. smile.gif

I like it, but I believe it's too big for me. I would love to see them make a water and shock-resistant phone.

I agree, but it is somewhat a bummer that HTC doesn't understand the importance of "not having exclusivities." They're having a exclusive with AT&T for the One X+, and this is rumored to be exclusive with VZW. Meaning that HTC will have to update more phones to the latest version of android; whereas, Samsung just has ONE major phone which is the Galaxy S3 (and Galaxy Note II) of course.

HTC needs to end all exclusive deals with carriers and make ONE phone brand and stick to it. Simultaneously releasing this phone on all major carriers including internationally. This helps them because they won't have to update so many different phones (they'll have to change some bit here and there but won't have to start from scratch).

At this point, HTC needs more sales and exclusives doesn't help their case unless AT&T and VZW is paying high amounts of money to obtain these exclusives.

It's like a One-X but..

- Better display
- Higher resolution
- Much faster chipset
- Twice the RAM
- JB 4.1 out the box

Need I continue?

Battery is irremovable?

A letter to HTC:

We buy you because you are not Apple. Please don't turn into it.

The battery I can deal with, the SD card slot is a deal breaker for me! This looks like a good piece of kit!

Samsung isn't Apple. Sony isn't Apple.

People buy HTC phones because of the material they use to build their phones. Personally for me, I don't rarely ever change the battery in my phone. Some people do, but there are many other phones to choose from wink.gif

No SD slot too?

WHAT ON FCKING EARTH ARE YOU THINKING HTC?
There is a microSD expansion slot.

MEMORY
Built-in (ROM / RAM) 16GB/2GB
External support 32GB microSDHC Secure

Edited OP post with a better feature list of the phone to prevent further confusion.
