HTC Raider 4G - User Reviews

  • pls how can i upgrade this phone?

  • hey i want to buy this mobile

  • Did you flash the correct version for your phone?

  • hey pls can u telme info about how to conect to pc suite

  • You can get a new battery in just Rs 1000. It will give you backup time of 30 hours at least.

  • I am having the same problem I am receiving multiple texts at times 26 of the same message. It is random I have talked to Bell they state is not a carrier issue they have also suggested I replace the Sim Card which I did. I went back to the factory defaults on the phone and still I am receiving multiple texts

  • I have had this phone for about six month ago .it very wonderful but the only problems I have is the battery doesn't last more than an hour and it restart by Itself pls help me.

  • I face a problem that when i write a text sms it convert automatically into mms after 80 charcters someone plz help me to solve this matter

  • I've had this phone since June 2012, and have nothing bad to say about it. I've dropped it off buildings, fallen out of pocket while riding a bike, had a tree fall on it once while cutting some down for fire wood, and now dropped in a bath of water. This baby is still running. No case has ever been put on it, I love this phone so much. Sadly, the specs a bit out dated compared to newer phones. It's almost time to say goodbye :(

  • Recieved the HTC Raider after another phone I had ended up having battery issues. Not even 3 months having the phone it shut off for no reason and never turned back on no matter what I did. I sent it in to see what the problem was and was told there was water damage(the phone never came in contact with any water while I had since during that time I was working a lot and had to keep my phone either at home or in my bag) and it would cost me over a grand to fix it. Needless to say I don't plan on ever getting any kind of HTC phone again.

  • It was fast when it was new.. Now it is super slow.. Battery lasts a little more than an hour.

  • it's bcos your didnt install the img.boot so restart the process

  • you need to restart the process and follow every step in the tutorial you used.

  • contact me on fb

  • So i had my htc raider 4g about 3 months ago. I tried running cyanogen 4.4 last week without making a backup...unfortunately. I rebooted the phone afterwards and all i see is 'htc' in da white goes no further. I really need assistance with this.

  • Please how did you upgrade it to 4.4 help me please and reach me via [email protected]

  • its not

  • Pls help me with the site to download HTC holiday original 4.0 is

  • Is this phone compatible with Windmobile network once unlocked? Thank you

  • Great Phone. Its still amazing at latest. It does support Android JB 4.4 Kitkat with a custom Rom from CayanogenMod, CM11. Thanks to it I'm playing 2014 latest android games with it. Absolutely great phone. I love it. Credits should goto software developers.

  • Hi, I've had my HTC Raider for about 2 years now, and just recently installed the htc sync in order to get my usb tethering to work. Before that I just hooked up my phone to the computer as a removable device and copied over the files that I wanted using windows explorer, as I would any other file on the computer.

  • Yes, I find that my Raider makes other calls while i am speaking to someone or flips between applications while I am having a conversation with someone. Sometimes it calls 911. I have taken to holding the phone away from my ear so that my ear or the heat from my ears do not make the phone do funny things. I do line the size of the phone though and the clarity of the screen. It takes great pictures, but the sound quality in the video could be improved as well as the overheating, and the quick consumption of battery power while mobile data or WiFi are on...

  • Hi, HTC raider is unable to run Skype. To back- up data you must download the HTC sync software from HTC to your computer or laptop. Then it's a fairly straight forward process. If you don't want to install "sync" you must hook up your pho.e by USB cable as removable device. Then using Windows explorer, open the folders you would like to copy. Just think of it as just another drive.... Hope this helps. If you want to tether your phone to your laptop to use as internet access you do have to install HTC sync to the computer first.

  • the backup sucks. HTC sync doesn't work.

  • I've had the Raider for two years now, i've dropped it in the toilet as well as multiple times a day every day since the day ive gotten it. The phone works great still, it plays all the latest apps, and has a very accurate touch screen. I do expirience problems with calls every now and again but other than that its a really solid phone.

  • I have had this cell two years. Personally I don't, like it because when speaking on it , it hangs up. I have too keep because of the damn 3 year contract.

  • How do you back up your contacts, pictures & videos to a computer?

  • yesssssss

  • this phone is amazing had this for 2 years from gingerbread to ics. dont think it will receive jellybean but thats okay. i dont know how others raider crashes. mine runs smooth even on 3g or edge lol. lte uses too much battery life. battery life is the only thing that i can say is the bad thing here. but all you need is to get a spare to switch back and forth and your good to go. browsing is a breeze. sms problems? theres apps for that lol. i rooted my phone then unrooted to try htc sense which i didnt like at first but rooting it kinda lagged it a bit. htc sense isnt that bad. gets the job done. calling is alright. the speaker isnt that loud. i love the weight of the phone as it is not on the lighter side and actually feel like im holding something. camera is superb. flash is excellent. running games go smoothly. overall i love this raider it went thru alot and still going strong.

  • while in game play i do not hear a sound or see incoming calls how to i change it so i am able to see incoming calls while in game play? it sends people straight to voice mail, not even a beep or anything is it possible and what steps do i need to do?

  • Are viber and skype compatible with the Korean version?

  • you can download big sms from play store and your problem will be solved

  • i am using htc raider 4g,,wonderful battery timing and grafics too but i am still waiting for android update ics to jelly bean,,recently my mobile got upgrate from 2.3.4 to 4.0.3 and i am hoping for new update of jelly bean soon,,wonderful mobile,,,i love HTC

  • hahahaha.. i guess i was lucky. it works fine and i think it is fater than galaxy s3 when it comes to loading aplications. the only thing i noticed is that it would crash/reboot some times. it has happed to me on regular basis and now it hasn't happened for a while, maybe 5 - 6 months, no idea why. oh and i loose reception all the time. it drops reception for 30 seconds to a minute and then it just regains it. this happens even in areas with full reception. it started to happen when i updated the firmware, i guess it is time to do it again, fingers crossed nothing f**** up... where can i get a cheap helmet??

  • i cannot update my raider phone because in about phone item it have not software update so i am very angry for problem and i dont like my htc phone

  • I hope someone who will give that phone. im almost 17 year old and turning 18 this march 31 and since then i dont have a history of having smartphone just a cheap one... I wish I have any in my birthday

  • dude i had the same prob because raider is frm south korea it has a character limit of 80 or 90 characters.. get go sms from market it will solve all ur problems..the native messages app is lame anyway

  • i have a raider 4G right now and i would like to ask why is that it has only 80 characters?.. and it will automatically convert to MMS when the message exceed to 80 characters.. i cant find in the message setting on how to adjust it.. is it possible to be adjust to maximum characters???!!!!... please help.. thanks!!..

  • Sorry to disturb you. I have HTC Raider 4G also and i agree with your thoughts on it. I have only one right now that it does not allow to compose SMS more than 80 characters. After 80 it automatically converts into MMS. Kindly guide me how to make it normalize to write SMS as long as possible like other sets. You can email the solution on [email protected]. Thank you very much.

  • I had the choice between this or an iPhone so wanting to be different I chose the raider. Big mistake. I loved it at first. It was fast, had a lot of free apps but now it freezes, randomly restarts itself (sometimes 5 or 6 times in a matter of a few minutes) and now the battery goes from full to empty in a matter of minutes-it'll freeze then I restart it and then the battery is red and it dies, even after its been charged. Next time, I'm getting the iPhone.

  • Upgraded from the HTC Desire C after finding HTC as the phone for me. Absolutely LOVE this phone. Very fast and more features than I would ever use. Why pay the big $$$ for the competition. HTC makes one awesome phone that cannot be beat in my eyes.

  • i buy htc raider4g...but this phone cant video call video use 3g or 4g

  • When I was looking for a cellphone i was going to buy teh Samsung Galaxy S3 at the time. but the salesman convinced me that this one was better because it had a better LTE coverage. And boy have i regretted that decision for the following reasons: 1) I had to pay $50 bucks. Galaxy was free. 2) its buggy, It crashes all the time. A lof of times by itself. (i would just hear the phone rebooting from my pocket) 3) Wi-Fi is buggy. I have to restarte the application/phone sometimes just to continue browising the internet. and of course while i do that the Data-network kicks in downloading whatever it is i was trying to view. effectively defeating the purpose of usign wi-fi. 3) its typing is slow and cluncky. im no fan of the iphone but its not user friendly at all. sometimes if you click outside of the keyboard area it will kick you out of it and browse to the first message you have saved of whoever your writing to. leaving you with 1 of 2 choices. A) exit and go back to it as a draft, or B) scroll down your saved messages, all the way to the message you are writing. hopefully you set it up for ie: 50 messages because otherwise you will be scrolling through hundreds and hundreds of all messages... you get my point. 4) deleting apps is haard as f$%^. you have to go into applications then go to delete applications then you have to look for the application. sometimes this wont delete your application. confused? you can imagine my frustration. 5) cannot delete apps that come with the phone, ie: twitter. you have to hardwire it to the computer and delete from there. do you have time for that? neither do i. 6) battery doesnt last (very big and bright screen - could be a plus) all in all annoying to navigate and operate. VERY buggy. save your money and go get yourself a Samsung Galaxy.

  • I have the raider, love it, recently I send a txt and receive, I get the same sound for send & receive, although settings are different, popped the battery, changed the sounds, etc, still won't correct this issue, so now I don't know when I'm receiving a txt because its the same sound for send & receive, any help would be great...I am with rogers, they suggested I do factory reset to solve this, I do not wish to reset, any help to further correct my issue would be great... [email protected]

  • I got this phone to with 1.5 ghz. but I can not find cdma? or there is no cdma in this version of Raider?! please reply me on [email protected]

  • I'm Loving my HTC Raider 4G which i got from Korea! It has 1.5Ghz processor not 1.2Ghz and I've been using it since June as a replacement of my HTC Desire HD(still using it though) hahaha! I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that HTC would update it to Jelly Rockin' Bean!! >.< -Bacolod- Philippines! >.

  • No it's actually true, 3 different people in my family use this model and we've all had the same problems with the Raider in particular. It reboots all of a sudden and hangs a lot.

  • My sons raider keeps rebooting...unusable. The geeks at Best Buy tried for an hour or more to make it work...any idea what went wrong and yes my son has a new phone and thanks to my wife for buying the extended warranty

  • i also want to know about this question.

  • You People Are A Circus. This is simply a good phone, once ICS came out, solved a lot of glitches, if you're experience was bad with this phone, you either got a defect or you don't know how to handle and operate a mobile device, and should go to your nearest hardware store and buy a helmet!

  • Thanks alot for your answer, Al. I want to purchase Vivid or Raider or Amaze 4g. Theres no 4G in the country i am located. Thanks for your reply. Do u know if the same settings are available on Vivid?

  • In txt msgs i only have a capacity of 80 characters after that it converts the txt to MMS ? How to solve the issue ??? thanx !

  • I loved my HTC Raider, but it went through a system update and is no longer like the older version, and I hate it.. It crashes, it's slow and i have to him an app several times before it actually decides to bring me there, and now the batterie life SUCKS! like what is happening!

  • There are options. Whether they can be used is another question. On my Raider, with Bell in Canada when I go Settings > Mobile Network > Network mode I get the following options: WCDMA Only GSM Only GSM / WCDMA Auto GSM / WCDMA / LTE Auto (my selection) I believe if you only have a 3G/HSPA+ based service LTE will obviously not be enabled. Bell supply special LTE sim cards for their service (not sure if this is standard on all networks) but i know if I travel outside LTE coverage it kicks down to 3G/HSPA+ so I'm assuming I could choose to go off the LTE auto setting and have it always run in 3G.

  • Hello Sary,+ everyone, Can the 4G LTE be turned off to save battery energy in HTC Raider or HTC Vivid??

  • Hello, Can the LTE 4g be switched off especially at areas without 4G?

  • everybody tell me that its a cdma+gsm phone or only gsm phone?

  • Its an excellent phone... A master piece from HTC... The LTE is super fast, faster than my wifi... i bought a case with kick stand and i'm loving watching HD movies on it ... hands free... streaming live TV and video... Better than the Samsung Galaxy 2 and the LTE versions...

  • does this phone have wifi direct?

  • Sending multiple texts is a carrier issue not a phone issue. I have a raider on bell and it works like a beauty. I've always been a fan of Samsung, but this phone is a great device.

  • i just got my htc raider yesterday and tday some txt msg's i sent will triple the same txxt ...and same wit receiving and when i send a txxt to fb it send the same txxt 5x...whats up wit that...does this mean my htc is already messed up when i only got it yesterday? HELP!!!!!

  • You might be using Korean version of Anycall, it is builtin software, it can't be removed, as far as i know.

  • At first I loved my raider but like the Liquid Acer E after about 4 months I started noticing the same problems; screen would freeze, it was taking forever for my text messages to send, phone would randomly shut itself off then restart and now my screen goes light gray and fuzzy some times. I wanted to be different and fight the iPhone phenomena but im about to jump on the bandwagon. I've had nothing but problems with my Androids.

  • Hey Hi.. Can Any one help me out on how to remove that sms character from Htc Raider 4g?? As it automatically converts the message into MMS after 80 characters.. :(

  • Yes, it will

  • look on ebay

  • you can go on ebay and get an unlock code for under 5$

  • I've had this phone for about a week now, running Gingerbread, and I have to say, I think it's a great phone. With high usage, wifi connected all the time, much browsing etc, I get a full day worth of use out of it between charges. It's interface is clean and VERY snappy. I've had zero issues with any of the "built-in" or downloaded apps. Call quality is great, though I can't get signal on it in my basement, where my older Samsung Galaxy 5 got great signal. Otherwise, this is an awesome phone! Very happy.

  • I have to say, when I first got the raider I was excited.. I previously had google nexus prime. ( one of the best phones I had. Until I started getting a bunch of problems, one after another) anyways about the raider its a nice sleek look. fast performance, the brightness and details are pretty clear. bad things that I realized about it today is the selecting text or copying and pasting has to be the most horrible methods. its impossible to select text from mail and paste it in notes, thats one thing that frustrates me because i am a person who uses notes consistently. another is the battery dies very fast. in a full day from 9:00 am till 10:30 pm on average usage on the net, phone calls and notes it last only up to 3:00 pm for me at laeast. i dono

  • how to unlock cell in HTC Raider 4G?

  • What a stupid name for a mobile..

  • Nexus is better in every way.....the display is higher. The ppi density is higher. Nexus has newer tech inside such as super amoled hd short using the nexus along side iphone 4 s , nexus is faster has a more briliant display.....despite haveing slighly less ppi i said..newer tech.. raider is a childs phone.

  • Thanks Sary!

  • 4 the battery .. raider have a little bit low battery permanence .. but it doesn't matter .. its just little bit >>>

  • Thank you very very much Sary! I am almost convinced about Raider))) If it is not difficult, how about the batteries? Is it OK? knowing from my experience HTC Inspire HD, the battery is a bit weak point, but disconnecting some apps make it live longer. Thanks again!!!

  • sure raider is faster than S2 .. but the S2 have fantastic screen .. 4 the battery S2 have very good battery than the raider .. raider have 4G LTE network and that mean super fast internet but the S2 doesn't have >> my advice .. htc raider 4g is better than S2 ..

  • Friends, thinking between HTC Raider 4G and Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100. I had HTC Inspire 4G before and was very very happy until it was stolen (what a disaster...). Can you please tell what to choose? How are the batteries in HTC Raider? Thank you so much!!!

  • why there isn't GPU ???????????

  • yup! It works on 850/1900 2G and 3G bands!

  • Had the raider a few days now..nice, hi tech look. A bit on the heavy side compared to SGS2..Speaker is useless, though..barely heard videos even when on full volume..display is nice..HTC ring tone choices are absolutely sh#t..not impressed with the screensaver and other sense UI choices either..and with all the amazing specs and performance potential of the device, what's with the weak 1620 mah battery, barely lasts a day on average use. Returning the device for the SGS2, which I think is a better phone. My friend has one, which I tried out and was quite impressed .

  • My country uses 3G bands 850/1900, will this device work here? Jamaica.

  • This phone seems to be under-reviewed and it's not clear to me even from the comments. Will this phone work on a GSM-based UTMS/HSPA network?

  • It's taking some time to get used to moving from HTC HD2 windows to this new Raider. It's speed is great and am liking the phone more and more. You cannot go wrong with the display size.... it was either the future Iphone 5 or Raider for me.... and it is the Raider

  • yes gpu 220

  • yes it is qhd

  • specification show CDMA but no CDMA in my htc raider

  • You do realize it's an android phone... There are 1000 apps on the market, most of which are free, that are document editors.

  • i got it nd it is amazing is just little bit heavy but good phne ...i love to use it...

  • no document editor

  • using dragontrail glass , like samsung galaxy note and samsung galaxy wonder . new company from japan Asahi Glass.

  • Too many HTCs with the same kind of specs. A while ago some one from samsung told me they are investing a lot in developing many different kind of phones, but it looks like HTC is investing a lot on developing many phones with the same kind of specs!

  • Not Gorilla Glass, name brand. They sourced a different company's shatter proof glass. I got that answer back from HTC directly, they explained that the name brand product no longer met their needs so they went elsewhere.

  • hey , what abwt battery ?

  • Does this unit really have all the bands listed? It would then work with 3G and 4G on Verizon and ATT? (CDMA and GSM combined) Seems to good to be true...Or are there severla "versions" of the same unit available that work on either CDMA or GSM?

  • n y on earth wud u b needing to do that often?

  • A good phone. The only thing that annoys me is how you need to remove the battery to get to the MicroSD slot.

  • GPU field is missing. Does it have a Adreno 220 ?

  • This phone is just amazing. The screen is so crisp and huge..and the glass is gorilla..hasn't been confirmed yet on corning's site but most of htc latest phones use them. the sensation did..this isn't any different. It's just a little heavy..I have been using an ARC and a GALAXY this weighed a "tonne" the first time i held it..but you'll get used to it..don't know if this was stated, but it plays videos out of the box. Wanted to be sure so i tried a .avi video and it played flawlessly. I cannot confirm other formats but I'm sure it will do fine. This is my first SENSE UI experience and im loving it..One word..AMAZING. You should get it

  • I've been searching for anything seems better than this but they're. All this new specs that HTC's built wasn't a quite big success at all. HTC's used the same things as they do in the past but for the Raider 4G it's awfully better because more functions are packed newly. I'm sure it's better than Old Mamma Nokia.. Surely.

  • Does it have gorilla glass????

  • CDMA ses wiremax technology, which does not require a sim card where as GSM requires a sim .card CDMA is limited to regeon or country,with GSM you can roam around the globe with your phone. Note CDMA has a high speed connectivity in terms of internet n clear picture in terms of watching online videos or Tv.

  • I thought the screen was a qHD one?

  • Camera should be 12MP, autofocus, LED flash/Dual LED flash.1080 p @60 fps. OS Android OS, v4

  • wallpaper is imitating ics

  • CDMA has better data rate than GSM

  • CDMA is not using a sim card, it's a much more secure but slower network. GSM uses a sim card and is the global standard. Can use it many different countries.

  • friends can anybody explain a simple practical deffrence between CDMA and GSM?

  • thank you for your wonderfull information.

  • and dont forget sprint is cdma as well

  • GSM is type of cell networks. Some companies are GSM (AT&T and T-Mobile) and some are CDMA (Verizon and Virgin). There are other standards as well. To know whether a phone will work or not, you have to check whether the network is compatible with the phone and also the band (850, 900, 1800, 1900). Many new phones are compatible with many bands and many standards, but it is not necessarily compatible with all.

  • What a GSM smart phone means please? Can a GSM smart phone work in USA?

  • What a GSM smart phone means please? Can a GSM smart phone work in USA?

  • Is it out yet in the U.K?

  • i prefer sonyericsson xperia arc s to this phone

  • Which processor?

  • I hope it will be soon available in Saudi Arabia.

  • I'm seriously hurt by HTC inability to launch any of there top range phones in the uk. They give us the sensation XL my 2 year old desire z is better wow it has beats audio, it doesn't disguise the fact that is does have the biggest screen on the market today but less pixals, which means pic quality is comprised also ppi is only 199 should be in the 3 hundreds to rival galaxy and Apple. Oh you do BUT IT'S NOT AVAILABLE in UK WHY? Rezound, amaze and raider eat the sensation XL what you playing at I'm going galaxy as at least they value the British pound by releasing there top phone here.

  • Is it same as vivid?

  • Hi there I am using an N96 phone with an internal memory of 16GB and I want to change to HTC raider 4g. In my country we have an HTC Sensation with 1gb memory. When is this phone coming to South Africa.

  • owned bell version fro a week now - dual 1.2 cpu the 1620mah battery is a tad weak when making the phone work other than making sure I have a charge cable in the car,comp and bed its a great phone. screen is very responsive, and the voice commands work so great.

  • I hope this is coming to Romania as well... HTC is a very good company, and Samsung too. These 2 are big competitors.

  • I desperately want the Korean version of this phone. Should work anywhere with a 2100mhZ WCDMA signal. Anybody in Korea want to buy it and throw it up on eBay? ;-)

  • I hope that this will get ice cream sandwich update by next year February

  • Good phone! All CDMA and GSM, fast.....

  • oh i got it, it has not one versions some are 1.5Ghz others are 1.2Ghz

  • I am Korean and was about to choose Samsung GalaxyS2 HD LTE, but found that the size is way too big to use with one hand (the thumb barely reaches to the top scroll bar). Now I am considering Raider, but worried about the voice call quality, and the integrated speaker quality. Anyone has comments?

  • Processor is 1.2 GHz dual core in both the Rogers Raider version and the ATT Vivid.

  • It has 1.5 DC processor

  • The HTC raider is only available with a 1.5ghz proc if you get it from Korea, most other versions are 1.2ghz which is still blisteringly fast considering its a dual core phone.

  • i have this phone its cpu is 1.5Ghz dualcore not 1.2 i uploaded the screenshot

  • correction....Cpu is 1.2ghz not 1.5ghz

  • li ion battery How much hour's Talktime Music 3G Standby

  • 1620 mA- POOR....

  • ...I wonder what you think about every other product in the world. I'm sure they all work the same and come out every couple months or so.

  • Curious they don't have any info on the battery.....

  • lol ur obviously a fanboy of iphone or blackberry

  • all htc phones r copycats. they made 1 a day and all look and work the same.

  • Dude, i think your quote is for Samsung not HTC.

  • you would prefer the Chinese made Iphone? I'd choose Taiwan over China any day.

  • Cheap plastic,all HTC look the same,bad speaker,shitty Andriod full of spywares,malwares,bad battery,list can go on and on. And they're expensive though..

  • dude what success the htc desire beat it for phone of the year with every awards possible so you saying that they are all wrong? and remember the first ones shipped antennagate and jobs lies and the solution they offered a plaster apple is an arrogant company yes htc are also but apple is the worse! so apple bum boy take your fetish somewhere else this is not an apple forum.

  • nice phone but htc are very costly on price

  • A gsm version is on the way. Telstra Australia announced today. due early 2012.

  • Can't imagine people comparing HTC with iphone .HTC is a machine for serious minded with full of xciting feaatures but iphones is obviously for lesser minds who do nothing other than facebook and the likes.Get serious men!

  • I hate to see the below statement on this site.... "This is not a GSM device, it will not work on any GSM network worldwide." Other option(s): The SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE. It's the best option on the Market at the moment. Always on the look-out.... VIP

  • Dude, you are fucking retarded. GTFO of the HTC feed if you're going to come trolling about your fucking garbage iphone. The iPhone UI looks like its made of plastic. Look at the HTC Sense UI, it really puts the crap in crapple.

  • We do not buy HTC phones because they "look cool" or the media tells us they're the "it" phone. We buy them because they have better performance, often better specs, and great customer service (I've only had to buy 2 HTC phones, but I've owned 4 progressively better models thanks to their unique warranty service). Also, it doesn't hurt that they greatly support Android :)!

  • Take a look at iPhones and their successes. Enough said.

  • this is a nice phone.........i'm waiting for this.!!!!!!

  • lol!

  • Inam so bored with htc. Look at the last 1000 mobiles they produced they all look the same. I used to love htc phones but after a c'mon. They are killing something that used to be great and destroying it. Htc has to try to change the shape of the phone,the android software is looking boring. How many name ncan you put on a phone that basically has the same features. Time for htc to be bought as they are boring the hell out of me.

  • Why is it only CDMA and not GSM?

  • It looks like a good smartphone. Let's wait & see how is it in our hand.

  • actually it is coming out in europe and asia

  • you couldnt afford it anyways so y u complaining?

  • it´s a muscled desire hd

  • What a sad fact, that it's only for America.

  • hey you guys should be happy I have a razr v3 with 30mb of memory and DUAL color displays...

  • Well if it is a prototype tell me why I went into AT&T and asked a employe about it and he confirmed....and that dude with the aria I have a freaking motorolla backflip consider your self lucky

  • I agree. I too am sick of waiting. I've had this damn aria for as year now, and am sick of friends with all their Samsung crap laying me to waste! If they don't have out by November, I'll jump ship and get the Nexus.

  • It's not HTC but AT&T testing of a device that takes about 3 to 6 months and this information was probably from what it was a prototype.

  • HTC has spread themselves too thin! I love their products, they're superior to all others, I can not wait any longer! It should not take so damn long, really. Come on HTC get with the program, to kick the ipohone's ass you need to step it up and put out the most advance technology you've got! You can do it and if this phone were available now or at the last a month or two I would be thrilled. One thing for sure it would keep me from considering the new iPhone5!

  • if it isnt out by the summer, might as well get the Nexus 4G LTE. Thats out in November.

  • ETA? Approx? 2012?

  • I found out the rumors about the HTC Holiday and it will be on ATT's 4G LTE network in the next year or two. I do not know the release date for the HTC Holiday. I NEED TO KNOW THE RELEASE DATE FOR THE HTC HOLIDAY

  • "Everything I've read about the SGS2 said no dual core.". It is simply unbelievable! Everywhere it says that it is dual core. Everywhere means everywhere!!!

  • Everything I've read about the SGS2 said no dual core. It was rumored to be. I know the SGS2 tablets will have the dual core in them. Besides,who uses the term nitwit other than the folks who sit on these forums waiting for others to respond? Keep saving your paper route money,700 bucks is a hefty price tag to make phone calls.

  • lol... nitwit. But i am with you, HOW can anyone who wastes even a moment of their day researching upcoming phones NOT KNOW SGSII is a dual core? i mean, since last year we've been waitin' on If only they hadn't of put that dumb D pad on it. What the heck is THAT all about? And the same 480x800 resolution as Orig galaxy S from almost 2 years ago? Come on Sammy, step it up!

  • Galaxy s2 IS a dual core phone you nitwit. 1.2 ghz exynos dual core processor for uk or Tegra 2 for u.s.

  • HTC has announced all upcoming Android phones will have unlocked bootloaders. I'm pretty excited about this phone. Samsung let me down by not putting a dual core in either the Infuse or the SGS2. I'm glad I'll never own a Motorola

  • Is this a 3d phone

  • Nice, hopefully it just doesn't have a signed bootloader like other really powerful phones on AT&T right now (I'm looking at you Motorola). If it has HDMI out too that'd be awesome...everything about it would be perfect. Could do with some onboard harddrive space, but oh well. Looks real nice!

  • It says 1GB RAM. RAM is not internal storage. That doesn't mean its internal memory is 1GB. It is not yet known, so it is not stated.

  • I'm waiting for its release...spec are very good...

  • Why it's only for America?? :(( HTC should make some awesome phones for other parts of the world too. :) They are very good at making smart phones, but they should make phones with at least 8 GB of internal storage. In these days 8 GB is required! If your phone has HD or Full HD, you need a BIG internal storage as well, not just a Memory card slot. Look at Samsung guys, they make phones with 16, or 32 GB of...! :) :->

  • I cannot wait until this phone comes out. I just hope that the battery is in a better location, so that there can be better 3rd party batteries available. I can only imagine how much juice will be sucked out of this thing.
