Aaron unboxes the HTC Amaze 4G, T-Mobile's newest Android superphone.  Coming on October 12th, it offers a dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S3 processor, 4.3-inch qHD display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities, and Android 2.3.4 with HTC Sense 3.0.  It'll retail for $259.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate.

The build quality is astounding, HTC says it's the best camera on a mobile phone to date, and HSPA+ 42 Mbps should be nice and fast.  Is it worth getting, or should you wait for the Nexus Prime and the other hot holiday devices?  We'll find out.

Cheryl Sutton Briggs I'd like to see it compared to the My Touch 4G slide which seemingly has the same camera.

Raven Lotz Oh Aaron sometimes I just watch the reviews to look at you, lmao jk!
Raven Lotz
Raven Lotz The two most powerful phones out right now are the Samsung SG2 and Motorola Droid Bionic. Atleast until the Droid Prime/Nexus Prime and HTC Vigor is released. Also Android phones :P
Chad Richter
Chad Richter Didn't this already come out 3 times now? fucking Android.. So tired of the 300 phones a month coming out that have no real difference than the 300 the previous month. pretty soon they're going to run out of catchy nouns and verbs to call them.

Robert Simmons I love my sensation however that looks more peppy. I am sure the higher ram helps.
Adrian Salazar
Adrian Salazar Probably will be my next phone, was waiting on the nexus prime but since it will be exclusive on verizon I'm going to get the amaze 4g. Would get the galaxy s 2 but samsung has a habit of not updating their phones so....
Mike West
Mike West Looks excellent but not too sure about the protruding screen. I guess a case would fix that.
Marco Raymond
Marco Raymond Not really, the HTC sensation XL looks cooler to me
John Zanatta
John Zanatta I think I will stick with my modded Sensation. Why would I need to burn through my 5gb data cap than I already do? Plus, I bet my Sensation runs more smooth...
Orion Pax
Orion Pax I am not amazed.
