Perhaps you two should do some research and think outside of the box before assuming things. You guys don't qualify as enthusiasts, either, given your oversight of the obvious benefits. An SD Card and removable battery are invaluable if you flash a lot, develop for Android, and/or have a need to transfer data easily between multiple platforms much more quickly than the USB 2.0 platform provides. Personally, I also don't like trusting cloud services with my files. They are also very limited since they require a data connection. Furthermore, if you guys are happy being duped out of spending more money because you have to buy the device with more storage then I'm happy for you, but I'm not.

Agreed.
Not to mention batteries do in fact have a usable life span. I just had to replace the battery on my GS2 and it's like a new phone again. The stock Samsung unit wouldn't hold a charge for more than 2-3 hours. Now without a removable one do I void my warranty and replace it myself or go whining back to HTC for the replacement. Who's to say they will even deem it worthy of replacing when it's still able to hold a charge for a short period of time?

They're actually doing a carrier wide release in the US (excluding Verizon, which makes sense). I'm impressed...

I'm guessing that means Sprint will be left out of the loop as well :-(

Yup, I'm a slightly more-knowledgeable-than-average phone user, not an "enthusiast", as you state, so a lot of what you speak to is not as useful to me, but for your application, sure, that makes sense. I have always been intrigued by this side of the phone / portable world, but I guess I'm just a "random" when it comes to this. wink.gif

As for going on a trip w/o a charger... I keep my ENTIRE life in my phone... I have a USB cable, power adapter, car adapter, power pack, and a quick zip cable, all in a waterproof slipcase with me (or nearby) 24-7. I mean like I can get to this while I'm driving to work, in case I fly off the un-plowed road and am trapped at the bottom of a ravine with a dying phone. It's just not sensible to deal with these power hungry devices when you can't just plug it into something and make it go. Personally, I don't want to disassemble it to do that! That's just me though... tongue.gif
(I'm also the type that keeps two types of "Bug-out Bags" ready, one in my car, one in my house for emergencies, so maybe it's less the tech side of me and more the preparedness side...)

I have to agree that this looks similar to Iphone 5 and BB Z10, not to mention those WP8 like tiles.

Interesting choice on the camera.

4 MP might be a turn off for some people, although I'm sure it'll take some really good low light shots. It's hard to market a 4 MP camera, I'd imagine.

I would imagine you are even more knowledgeable than that if you are on these forums.

Without root access, I would not be able to use my car head unit as my phone (precise mirror with touchscreen on the car dash transferring to the phone). To get root access, I need to flash. To flash, you need a backup of your existing phone image to be safe, and flashing works best when wiping everything first so external storage is now necessary. Flashing custom ROMs, kernels, boot loaders, radios, and recoveries inevitably leads to a frozen phone now and again, which now necessitates a removable battery for easy reset of the phone.

Those are not the WP8 live tiles. I think it is the new Sense from HTC.
