Default just picked up htc holiday/raider

Had an atrix my first android phone, great phone but didn't feel like replacing a cracked screen for the third time and had an upgrade so got this phone. So far I must say I thought it was gonna be too big but im actually surprised feels great in hand. Great screen and the biggest reason for me was LTE. Actually hit 44mbs up and 25 mbs dl on the speedtest app. Other thoughts: great camera, sweet screen no real complaints. Got it over the gs2, which is also LTE here but preferred the solid feel of the metal case as opposed to the plastic of the samsung. If any has any particular questions feel free ill try to do my best to answer em. And if anyone knows how to root this that would be greatly appreciated

How does the screen compare to the SGSII? I was hoping the Newley minted Skyrocket would have an HD display, but it doesn't, so I am back to the Holiday/Raider/Vivid....

I'm with Rogers in Ottawa as well. Currently too cheap to shell out for the LTE plan (altho only $20 more a month) so am running the Raider on the regular HSPA service. I had to delete the LTE apn from my phone and manually add the regular apn.

^ That sucks. Hope they'll credit you something for the LTE service you're (not) receiving.

Since Costco seems to be in error about the RAM, I wonder if they might also be in error about the version of Sense?

pretty solid to be honest. got the phone in the morning yesterday. it was at 20% when i got it so i let it die, it recharged quick and i went from 12pm to about 2am with moderate-high phone usage and only used up about 70% of my battery.

I was downloading apps, customizing Sense, texting, browsing, testing games, etc

Screen is pretty sick. No complaints. I compared it with my buddy's 4S and i'd say it's much better. The increased resolution goes a long way i find. Even he was a bit jealous.

It is a bit of a battery killer though. If you don't mind lowering the brightness then you'll be fine. Otherwise, your phone will die fast

Cool, so no pentile right? I hope there will be an extended battery available. Should take care of it.
