Default HTC vigor specs (my opinion)

As we get closer to the release of the Vigor no real info has been given yet. These are a list of specs I would love to see on the Vigor.

Black, I didn't like the charcoal grey thunderbolt. I like phones that are completely black, like both Incredibles

GSM, I know this means it would have to sacrifice LTE but I would be able to take it overseas as oppose to the thunderbolt. but it would be better if a phone could have both, or better yet getting LTE in Europe with the 700 mhz band.

Newest sense with GB (of course)

A kickstand would be cool, but I could definitely live without one.

A camera that could take up to 1080p with a qHD screen.

3D videos (including youtube) would be cool, but 3D cameras aren't necessary.

Well that's the "what I hope for but will never happen" specs for this phone.

I just hope it comes out when it's supposed to. Which is October 5.

I'm not too worried about what the specs will be since it'll be replacing the Thunderbolt (supposedly). Well, one thing I hope for is a better battery.

How often do you go oversees to Europe? I would think you'd get more actual use from the 4g LTE antenna than the GSM antenna....but that's why I'm asking.

Is it normal to have ZERO official information less than 2 months before the release? I'm beginning to suspect the October 5th release date (not that I believed 100% in that date)

X2. If it doesn't have LTE, I'm not buying one...

Yeah I forgot to mention the battery. I'm hoping for a battery like the EVO 3D, a 1730 mAh.

I know I use LTE more, but that's why I said I'm hoping for LTE with the 700 mhz band. I hear that lots of countries use LTE but not with the 700 mhz band, so phones like the thunderbolt wouldnt be compatible in those countries unless they upgrade to the 700 mhz band.

If these are going to be the specs of the Vigor as well, then I'm likely going with the Bionic. Although I love the HD screen and the dual 1.5 CPU...I'm not sure if that is enough for me since the memory specs are still pathetic in my opinion and no better than my Droid Incredible from 1.5 years ago.

That is not the Vigor^

Its the sensation 2 (which is only a special edition sensation) which isn't quite good as the Evo3d.

Even so It is still WAY batter than the Incredible spec wise..

Evan? Oh, wrong thread.

I've read some postings on this forum about how dual cores will actually help with battery usage, and they sounded fairly logical. Since this topic comes up every time I discuss getting a phone with dual cores, I'd like to read something a bit more substantial. Does anyone have a credible source of info about the effects of dual cores on battery use?

I wasn't saying that that was the Vigor specs. I was implying that if it had similar specs to THAT phone, then I would pass on HTC this time around.

Another thing when comparing HTC to MOTO, accessories. HTC does spend much time (hardly any at all) on their accessory line up...and when they do, they are slow to launch/release. Look at all the accessories listed from MOTO that will be available for the Bionic.

Well MY point was that those specs were indeed way better than the incredibles (more than twice as good) and that while that was a completely different phone we should jump to any conclusions. Sorry if i misunderstood but not really getting what you are saying.

I would glady take a vzw version of the sensation. That would be awesome, give it 1gig ram and i'm sold. More than twice the cpu, twice the memory, 3 versions newer sense, etc....


edit: And of course there are accessories coming out, we are (probably) a week away from teh bionic coming out and OVER a month AT LEAST from the vigor getting launched....

Even though it sounds it will have a bigger cpu than the Bionic and that HD screen, if it doesn't have a decent size battery, decent battery life, and min. 1GB of RAM, then I'll likely go with the Bionic...even though I would rather stay on Sense (especially since 3.5 is looking pretty cool).

100% sure it will have 1gig of ram... battery?? Thats a toss up... hopefully yes (didnt i see that the sensation had a 1750??) It looks like htc is finally getting the idea....

I will say that i went and looked at the photon and if the bionic is at all similar then it will be a BEAST!!

Well the other phones on that leaked roadmap from awhile back are all turning out to be releasing on the days they are supposed to so hopefully the vigor doesnt run into any problems that would cause a delay, and hopefully have better battery life.

The cpu is older and not as powerful as the omap is. Being clocked at 1.5 ghz will put it close to the bionic but only because of the higher clock speed. at 1 ghz the bionic is better and faster.

There is no way to know that for sure till at least one of them is released honestly. Regardless of cpu there is no way to know for sure till the phones are put through real world tests (imo that is)
