Thanks for your participation! :)

John McPhillips I'm going to give it a try
Sebastian Gomes No microSD slot, not gonna buy. I still see the gs3 as my next phone. Possibly the gs4 lol
Dan Bittner This phone doesnt stand a chance agaisnt my samsung galaxy note2.
Ken Hoey Think they covered all the letters of the alphabet. One S One V One X between this three they have 25 models
Ken Hoey They need to move away from the theme that they currently have. I'm a fan of HTC but after the HD2 all of their phones are just too similar...also didn't they say they weren't going to make 50 different phones a year anymore? So they made all of the phones under the "One" series and there's still 50 different "One" phones!
Zach Cline Kevin upgrade from the thunderbolt . That thing sucks and it's almost three years old . They aren't going to update it
Joe Czo And as always crappy battery life. 16gigs and no sd card storage. Oh HTC you're the best.
Tyler Hell Sweet. I hope there is some new software tricks like Samsung has! Come on HTC you can do it!
Carlos Ochoa no micro SD slot...
David Liu I would assume 2020 mAh battery can't hold up to LTE and 1080P screen for long, no matter how efficient they say the S4 Pro chips are.
Mahdi Nourideen Safa Did they mention the battery life?
Anonymous Update the thunder bolt get itdone
Nick Sciancalepore T-Mobile hahahahahaha
Zach Cline You don't need a fingerprint lock screen , That is just freaking stupid
William Howser That it's coming to tmobile. The DNA & TMO are a perfect match
Jose Angel Santiago Fingerprint lock screen
Clifton H. Williams II I'm not sure. I used to be a big HTC fan but not so much anymore. Maybe they will include a 500 mah battery that will power up the device for about 10 minutes then die like the rest if thier phones
Michigan Fancyman With 1080p we need a lot of memory, so 64 gigs of micro sd would be good and a nice size battery.
Blake Salsgiver Who cares as long as its not Apple!! Im all for it!
Tim Cristiano HowardMorris Something that actually works
Leston DjShabang Vibrant screen....
