Had a play with one of these in an Optus store today. I liked it. The Dual Core S4 and 1GB of RAM make this a snappy little device.

It may be a good option for people who want something a bit smaller than the 4.7 inch and above so called “high end” phones.

Despite the lower resolution, the display is a quite lovely SLCD-2 screen that many non techies will be completely happy with I suspect.

u mad brah? ya, u mad B)

the design is better then the one xl i give it that, but everything else sucks, what a joke, optus smh. people will see the 5 megapixel cam spec and run for the hills.


8GB with sd card slot is plenty, 64GB internal?? not a HTC fan but seems reasonable,,

No one

8GB? I’ll pass. Anything under 64GB internal or external, I’ll not touch.

no one

Correction: waiting for HTC Deluxe

Dunno, if the Deluxe is based of Droid DNA, then the battery life is apalling apparently

No one

I don’t mind about the battery as during the day I have to use tethering on my phone so no battery can handle full day with that anyway. Without tethering I am sure battery will last whole day for calling and standard use.
