Default HTC One XL

Anyone else excited about this beast of a device? Fasted CPU on a smartphone with an amazing camera and screen. I so can't wait to get one!

Yeah I want one but I heard the price will be 400-800 bucks depending on the model. I might just get the Samsung Galaxy S2.

Well I have a full upgrade coming so I am going to wait and see. Hopefully with discount I can get it for 250 that would be good.

Specs are mildly better than an iPhone 4S except no app store.

Um, It has the Android Marketplace which is as large as the IOS App Store. It also has the fastest CPU on the market. The camera is also better as proven by every test it always falls above the iPhone 4S Camera in picture quality and speed.

The iPhone has nothing on this...

I'm starting to hate this Rezound. I didn't like my Incredible until I rooted it.... I should have known that I would need to be patient with a new HTC phone. More talk of it being "impossible" to get S-OFF on the damn thing.... errrr....

Advantages over 4S:
  • 4G LTE The only real benefit, and iPhone will have it soon enoguh
  • Weighs less - Weight is not a problem with the iPhone
  • Bigger screen - Don't want it. Size of the iPhone is perfect
  • Higher resolution screen - Pixel density is actually higher on the iPhone
  • Faster CPU Barely, and for phone apps it offers no real world benefit. Dual core A5 gives me zero problems with speed.
  • Bigger battery CPU and screen will eat it up quicker
See above
