    What a let down on weight, old processor, crappy camera. HTC won’t be around in 3yrs or less.

      The 4UP camera is actually not bad. I was a bit skeptical when I bought my One but am quite OK with it now (4 months since I bought it). The only issue I have is the purple tinge in low light photos when the justification for the UltraPixel is the low light photography. But otherwise, it is quite good.

      Agree with everything else though. So sad to see the “latest and greatest” from HTC using an outdated CPU whilst the larger screen may account for the additional weight. On the plus side, it does have an expandable memory which the One doesn’t.

    Serious let down…old processor, removal of OIS and 4MP in a flagship?! 217g..i don’t want to carry a 1/4 Kg in my pocket..Note 3 launched earlier and killed this and the Z Ultra…

    • Sujay Vilash

      Just proves that HTC need a new direction. Their current CEO is simply no good. But he won’t step down to give HTC a chance to survive. Pity.

    I wish HTC the best of luck with it. I personally wanted a little bit more to justify upgrading my One. Let’s hope heaps of people buy some and keep HTC a float!

    • vijay alapati

      Form factor might not appeal as it has large screen and might bazel

      • Happy Dog

        That’s your opinion. Everyone has one, so there may be a heap of people that like it.

        I wish HTC to stay in the game so I am simply wishing them the best!
