Pros: Easy to get started, love the android market, the features of this phone, also the OS (ICS!). Sharp Super LCD touch.
Cons: My only big complaint is the battery life- I have to charge it at least once a day, smartphone is heavy.
With the back plate on, the Gorilla Glass face is raised above the chrome frame at the left and right edges, bucking the current trend of smartphones where the display is recessed. Although the glass is larger and far more rounded on the edges, the raised face echoes the iPhone 4/4S.
The 4.3-inch qHD (960×540-pixel resolution) Super LCD touch screen is quite eye-catching. Text and images looked crisp and sharp on the bright screen. The screen’s large size also makes it great for viewing Web pages and video. The Samsung Galaxy S II’s Super AMOLED Plus display shows off more saturated colors and has slightly better contrast.The touch screen was responsive and features a built-in accelerometer, pinch-to-zoom support, and a proximity sensor. Note that it only comes preloaded with HTC’s virtual keyboard, but it does offer Swype-like functionality (HTC calls it Trace) so you can drag your finger from key to key for quicker input.
The camera does an excellent job outdoors. Images came out looking sharp with good detail and bright colors. The ClearShot HDR a Sweep Shot modes also worked well.
On the video side, the camera can record up to 1080p HD clips, and the results were very similar to those of the still camera. Great quality in outdoor and brightly lit environments, but videos taken inside had a slight haziness to them. You can share your videos and photos through a number of channels, including e-mail, Facebook, YouTube, Picasa, and Flickr. You can also mirror content to your HDTV via DLNA or using an HDMI MHL adapter. The HTC Amaze 4G has 16GB of internal memory and an expansion slot that can accept SD cards up to 32GB, but sadly, an SD card is not included in the price of the phone.
