HTC Amaze 4G

Despite being one of T-Mob's first HSPA+ 42Mbps phones, HTC's Amaze 4G fails to stun with its subpar battery life and washed out qHD display.

It's a very nice phone/camera.PC World70HTC Amaze 4GFrom its slick design to its fast performance and dazzling display, the Amaze is all-around good phone. If you’re looking for a stylish phone with a excellent camera, but don't mind a little extra bulk, the Amaze is ideal for you.Engadget70HTC Amaze 4G reviewAt the end of the day, the purchase choice is yours to make, but for our money, we'd hold out for something packing a wee bit more milliampere-hours.PC Mag80HTC Amaze 4G (T-Mobile)The HTC Amaze 4G has a big beautiful screen, a great camera, and fast HSPA+ 42 speeds, making it a top choice for Android smartphones on T-Mobile.CNET80HTC Amaze 4G (black, T-Mobile)The HTC Amaze 4G is a beautifully designed and fast Android smartphone, with some advanced camera features, but don't go ditching your point-and-shoot camera just yet.Laptop Magazine80HTC Amaze 4G (T-Mobile) ReviewThe HTC Amaze 4G backs up its gorgeous design with fast 4G speeds and one of the best cameras you can get in a smartphone.TechRadar70HTC Amaze 4G reviewThe HTC Amaze 4G may not completely live up to its name, but it fits in nicely with the upper class of Android devices thanks to a better than average build quality alone.GSM Arena80HTC Amaze 4G review: Upping the anteWhile we’re sure that the hardcore HTC fans will love it, we can’t say the same about potential new users. There are just way too many options out there which simply offer more for you hard earned money.IntoMobile90T-Mobile Amaze 4G: Can HTC still amaze us?The Amaze 4G combines an elegant design, an amazing camera, powerful hardware and some smooth software into a smartphone that is a delight to use.

I had high expectations when I went to get this phone. After some use, it wasn't all that I thought it would be. New phone, great processor, GB ram, etc. But the processor really drains the battery, GB of ram is half gone due to HTC processes, and it warms up with heavy use. NFC has no use in the phone at the moment. It should be getting an ICS update in the future which might change that. For now I have rooted the phone and put a custom rom and kernel on it and it has turned it into that amazing phone(no pun intended) that I wanted to buy on day one.TL;DR - Stock Amaze 8/10, Rooted Amaze 9.5/10Engadget Reader90March 12, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!So far this has been my favorite android phone. Plenty of space for apps and music, gat screen and battery life and great audio quality. Has some issues with HTC's sense bogging down the system sometimes but mostly the phones fly through app switching, and rarely Boggs down with heavy use.Engadget Reader70March 7, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The phone is above average. There are lots of products out there currently that far surpass the phone, for an equivalent price, such as the Samsung Galaxy S2. HTC Sense is what really ruined this phone for me, I hate sense (especially the keyboard). Get the Galaxy S II instead. Keyboard is far better in TouchWiz!Engadget Reader90January 2, 2012Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The is the best Android phone I've had to date. It's fast, has lots of memory, and the best camera in any phone so far. It's and AF camera and takes pictures lightening quick. It also can do burst mode and HDR.My only complains so far is battery life and I also find the phone has become a little creaky in the corners. But this is fairly common with all phones once they get broken in a little. Overall I think this is by far the best HTC phone I've used and look forward to getting Android 4.0 on this device.Engadget Reader90December 18, 2011Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category.

Especially after HTC announced Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) will be released for the phone after the beginning if the new year.
