  • Okay, somewhat decent. Posted via my $10 a month Unlimited talk & text FreedomPop Galaxy S III
  • Pretty decent specs. If the price is right this could be a winner. I just think HTC need to do something with their naming of phones. Not exactly inspiring or memorable. People buying in this segment may not be Android superusers who remember names, specs and model numbers. If the naming was simplified and more memorable I think they'd have a little more success.

  • Sensible comment and totally agree. Good product naming is a key factor in the mid to low range market. Especially when like HTC your brand is yet to have that powerful mind share like Samsung or Apple. When Nokia was 'king' it barely mattered what they called their handsets. It was a Nokia and that's all that mattered. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Everything looks good except for the large screen and resolution. Posted via Android Central App
  • +1 on the screen, if it was below 5'', could have well been my next. I wana take it on a ROM trip.. Posted via Android Central App
  • For the mid range sector the specs are quite decent and I bet the price should be tagged accordingly, it's gonna rock! Posted via Android Central App
  • 8mp front camera, what?
  • Yeah 8mp for front facing camera is unexpected Posted via Android Central App
