Pros
  • 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU seems to handle Sense 3.0 well
  • 4.5-inch qHD display offers rich color and the aspect ratio (540x960) makes it easy to hold in the hand
  • 8-megapixel camera takes an excellent picture
  • Stock build of Android 2.2 makes the device even faster
  • Supports T-Mobile's HSPA+ 42Mbps network, so data speeds are very fast (assuming your market has HSPA+ 42)
    Cons
    • Audio in 1080p videos sounds far too brash
    • With a 1,730 mAh battery, longevity isn't terrible, but falls behind other Android devices and the iPhone 4S

    Summary

    With a fast processor (that seems to work well with the software) and a beautiful, metal-clad body, the HTC Amaze 4G is the best phone on T-Mobile right now.  It's packed with a ton of goodies, like a 4.5-inch qHD display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording capabilities, and Android 2.3 with HTC Sense 3.0.  While pricey at $259.99 with a two-year agreement, it's the most feature-rich device on the carrier.
