[Engadget] HTC One unveiled - Page 8

post #71 of 185
when a battery is "non-replaceable" it can usually still be replaced with a little technical know-how
post #72 of 185
A lot of power usage comes from really terrible user settings and usage as well. Stock Kernels aren't the most effective either. On my One X I'm getting between 12-18 hours daily, depending on how heavy I use it (which I do.)

I like the phone, don't care about SD cards or batteries. Can always stream my music, download it for later, or carry a charger if need be.

All depends on what you use your phone for. But for the most part, most people don't really need more then 16 GB unless, for one of many, they use their phones for music, where their microSD cards make a huge difference. Some people watch videos on their phones.

Frankly, outside of lossless music... yeah, expandable storage on PHONES aren't really a big deal.

Speak for yourself.

Two things:

16GB on the SGS3/N4 fills up QUICKLY

Manufacturers price gouge on capacity upgrades. Apparentlky, another 16GB of NAND costs £70+... not really. I'd rather get a 16/32GB base version and stick a 32GB sd card in it. Sure, manufacturers can have a 64GB version of their device around, but I'd still demand an sd card slot.

I dig both design and specs although a better battery would be nice to have.

I see many are complaining about storage? I never came close to filling up 32 gigs...Got 12TB space on HDDs for that.

Got plenty of pics and music on my phone and yet i have plenty of space to be used.

Judging the storage part coming from many sounds like your life depends on it...lol

Maybe it's just me... wth.gif

With many games being 1GB on the phone, and the fact taht you never get the 32GB advertised (some of it is reserved for system, data, etc) then yeah it's totally doable. With more of these devices having good audio chips, too, FLAC playback is getting more and more appealing.

Plus, is the point of your phone not being obsolete. As soon as I get a 64GB SDcard for my phone, I'm going to stop carrying a USB stick around.

I think it looks great, and the specs are nearly perfect.

The S3...the Note 2...

Regardless, phone looks nice, and is available in 32GB or 64GB. I think HTC finally learned their lesson there.

BUT...

No no no no no. What the heck is up with those TWO softkeys? A back and home button? And the home button isn't centered? I griped about the S3, but I'll eat my words because it turned out not to be as bad as I though, but this one...bleeeh.

Really Rubers? You still don't have a MicroSD card? They're like $50-60 tongue.gif. Get on it, man!

But it is beneficial. Poweramp plus my already ~60% ALAC ripped library is what makes me love the S3 being capable of housing a 64 GB MicroSDXC card.

In this day and age can you really have a solid feeling phone with a removable back cover?

Every phone that I can think of that has that ultra premium feel to the finish and materials are all sealed units.

Iphone, Nexus 4, HTC One X, Nokia Lumia, New Sony phones....

Now compare to the GS2 and the Note, high end devices with mid-range build and material quality.
