I have been REALLY enjoying my Note2...but i just got the HTC One, for my son, and he played some music for me HOLY CRAP that thing sounds amazing!!! I know that's just one part of it, but still...it sounds amazing....hopefully the Note3 will get a sound upgrade, or i may also be looking at the HTC T6....

Honestly, I'm looking forward to see this T6, the new Moto X, and the new Nexus (and the new iPhone).

What I would absolutely buy though is a decent size table with the productive pen functionality! and I mean PRODUCTIVE!
Assuming you meant tablet. You could always look at the Note 10.1 or the Note 8.0. I bought the Note 8.0 2 weeks ago. Love it. Perfect size tablet for portability, as well as productivity.

It's become my dedicated media player in my car, as well as use at work and home. My International Note 2 is going on sale on ebay tonight!

For anyone interested. Nice looking phone though.

Dear HTC,

T6 Wishes - Everything the One has, plus:
(in no particular order)
  • Better power button
  • Higher quality camera glass/Lenses/Optics
  • Bigger Sensor - Let's see if we can get an 8 "UltraPixel" camera
  • Dedicated camera shutter button
  • Removable Battery
  • MicroSD card slot
  • 64GB on board storage capacity option for Sprint, Day 1
  • Black color option for Sprint, Day 1
  • Kickstand (not for me necessarily, but there are those out there that I know enjoy theirs - forget the kickstand cases folks)
  • Menu Button re-map option (let me get rid of that on screen stack overflow if I want to)
  • A legitimate way to disable/uninstall BlinkFeed
  • Consistent, Quality Controlled Display/Screen, from 1 BEST manufacturer, that is well calibrated to spec.
  • 3GB RAM with Dual Boot ability; 2GB dedicated for Sense or Stock Android 1GB dedicated for the other OR the option to apply 3GB to your preferred (not for me necessarily, I like Sense, but there are those out there that I know enjoy stock Android)

While most of those things could be possibilities, I will say that they are likely pipe dreams. The only major difference will likely be the SoC, which should be the SD 800 instead of 600. It will have 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. No removable battery or expandable memory. Definitely will not have an increased cam sensor either.

Not looking like it.

However, everyone will have their own sentiment about what they believe a device should/shouldn't have. For example: no expandable memory/removable battery is not a deal breaker for me, but for others, it is.

The ability to have a swappable battery would be helpful when you are in areas with weak signals requiring the phone to keep searching for a better signal - with the associated rapid battery drain. That is the only 'downer' that I see to the HTC EVO LTE and ONE. (I am drooling to be able to get a 'ONE', but I still have a year to go on my phone. Hopefully the replacement will have a swappable battery.)

Removable batteries seem to be a thing of the past. OEM's appear to be going for faster I/O performance over expandable memory as a feature, which I don't mind at all.

I wouldn't mind as much, as long as that means I'm getting battery life (at minimum) that resembles my Note 2. Anything less than that, for me, would still have to be removable option. I've never experienced having a phone that I didn't have to root to get a full 24 hours worth of use out of, or a full work day (heavy use). The Note 2 has been practically a dream, as far as battery life is concerned. Granted, I'm not in the majority (on the forums) that have joined the root club w/ custom ROM's that allow for over/under clocking the processor (to conserve battery life), but having this experience with the Note 2 has eliminated my thoughts of needing to root (although, at some point, I'd eventually like to sit down and do it properly, just never find the time).

The misses gets a good 13-14 hrs on her SGS3 (which is stock), and she's always surfing the web or on Facebook, etc..

Personally, I didn't root because I wanted extended battery life from tweaks and other customizations. I rooted because I wanted to be able to backup all of my apps and create nandroids, etc.. the extended battery life is just an added bonus. Also, TouchWiz is atrocious.

My Photon got close to those numbers, but as time went on and the batteries started to wear down, I could tell the difference.

My main theory behind holding off on rooting was based on how much customization I could do, without root. Majority of the customizations I want, I've been able to do without rooting. The only customization that I haven't found (without root), is being able to change the startup sound. I agree. I don't care for touchwiz at all, but NOVA has been perfect for me, so I haven't even seen Touchwiz since I first got the Note 2.

I haven't ruled out the OEM's coming up with ways for die-hard physical qwerty folks still being able to have that experience (whether it's bluetooth keyboard cases/cover accessories or something else).

For a second, I was a little confused. For some reason, I thought the HTC One had a 5 inch screen already, but I guess not.

I'm curious why the Butterfly S on Sprint is only speculated as a 5 inch screen. I'm wondering if the Butterfly S on Sprint is more likely going to be that 6 inch Note competitor, rather than a mirror of what was previously offered on Verizon.

its funny, the Note 1 and 2 have spoiled me. I was such a HTC fanatic but their HTC Flyer & stylus really bummed me out. The Note has taken stylus use to a new dimension. Whatever HTC comes out with needs to have a much better use of their stylus and a removable battery. The battery life on the Note 2 is phenomenal. And although I have yet to swap batteries on it, at least I can if I need too.

I am surprised you still haven't rooted drex. I thought you did lol

I have to say I have been impressed with the Note 2, the stylus works well, even in my paw ( I can 1 hand the Note 2 ). And Battery life has been outstanding. I have had some weird charging quirks where it was on a charger over night and only partially charged. It isnt the factory Note2 charger but it is a 2.0Amp charger.

The last 2 devices (note2 and Asus Transformer FT101) I wouldn't have rooted except for Nandroids and Titanium BU.

Waiting for ZeroLemon to get the batteries back up and selling 9300mAh *drool*

I was thinking the exact same thing with the 'T6', but the 'Butterfly S' Sprint rumor, and possibly reviving the Evo name would make just as much sense if not more.

The only thing that doesn't really jive for me is the release date for the 'Butterfly S' and 'T6'.
I would think that if they wanted to revive the Evo name they would have tried to tag it earlier and release it around the same time as the other main Evo's past. It is not the end all be all to have it release around the same time as the others, but the pattern and business reasoning was surely there. Maybe The One put a fly in the ointment, so to speak.

June 04th - Evo 4G
June 24th - Evo 3D
June 02nd - Evo 4G LTE (May 18 -> June 02nd)

It's fun reading this thread. I don't really have a stake in what comes out until February or March 2014. However, I just added my fiance to a family plan and he got the Galaxy S4. And I have to be honest, when playing with it I actually found myself liking it. And many around here know of my total aversion to anything Samsung due to past experience. I may have to pay attention to Samsung again because the GS4 and the Note II seem to be very solid phones.

Now my upgrade next year could be even more bewildering with so many more choices to consider.

I'm still very happy with my HTC Evo 4G LTE. So I feel like waiting until 2014 to upgrade is no big deal. It's great when you have a phone you really like.

I may have to pay attention to Samsung again because the GS4 and the Note II seem to be very solid phones.

Now my upgrade next year could be even more bewildering with so many more choices to consider.

I'm still very happy with my HTC Evo 4G LTE. So I feel like waiting until 2014 to upgrade is no big deal. It's great when you have a phone you really like.
simcha, remember the many conversations we both had during the Photon days? I've turned my view around 180 degrees after all these months with the Note 2. So much so that I bought the Note 8.0 also. There's just something to be said behind devices that get major backing from multiple angles and 3rd parties. And I'm glad you've been good with LTEvo. I think HTC still has the best looking of all the devices.

There are still certain aspects that I liked better with HTC and others that I liked better with Motorola, but overall, Samsung is night and day from the EPIC days (hard to believe that was 3 years ago already).

Me too. The LTEvo left a bad taste in my mouth. However, all manufacturers have lemons. I remember a certain Samsung moment that was a huge PITA.

But I have two galaxy s 3s now and love them both.

Im just the opposite. I def prefer the LTEvo to the s3.

I like that Samsung is fast with kernel source, that's about it tbh. Likely won't go with Sammy for my next device.

I'm probably going to jump to T-Mobile in the fall for the Nexus 5. Maybe for about a year until Sprint completes NV in the NY metro market (NYC/Long Island).

However, I do love my SGS3. Tons and tons of development for the device, which makes it even better.

Wow you're not the only person whose said that. I'm thinking of moving to T-Mobile as well this fall. The coverage in my area looks awesome. Definitely something I'm considering.

My contract with Sprint has already expired. I just don't like any of the current devices on their network. I'll wait for the Nexus 5 then make the switch.

The misses will have to stay behind until next Summer (August 2014, me thinks) since that's when her line's contract should be ending.

Ive said before if I had to pay my own bill I would have switched to the $30/mo plan a long time ago just for the price.

However, I'm still on the families plan, and I have no qualms with Sprint, so I hang around

The LTEvo had glaring Lte issues. I'd have my gs3 side by side with my evo and would never pick up lte. I'm talking about a strong 20 Meg signal in multiple locations in Chicago. The extra gb of ram in the gs3 is also by noticeable in the multitasking arena.

Don't get me wrong, then LTEvo was a good device, but some very important feature we just a bit half baked IMO.

I'll agree that the multitasking was absolutely borked on the stock ROM, but I think that's less to do with 1gb and more to do with HTCs implementation. So for unrooted users that can be a big con

At any rate, I run AOSP 95% of the time on whatever device I'm using. AOSP>sense>tw in my book.

I've also had to send my gnex and my s3 back to samsung for warranty repairs, and haven't had build quality issues with my HTCs

We didn't have LTE yet when I had the LTEvo, so I can't comment on that.

ok.. rooting and ROMed phone is better than Stock.
but it is not fair to compare a rooted vs stock.

S3> LTevo
ROOT LTevo > S3
ROOT S3 > ROOT LTevo

and I was a total HTC fan... but I think they have lost touch with the public's needs/wants. Example: thin is more desirable than battery life
I sure hope they can come back.

I have gotten 8 hours of screen on time streaming video on my LTEvo, consistently, from day one. And that was without rooting. Normal use goes well over a day. Battery graph screen shots for proof upon request.

The One is doing exceptionally well by all accounts but not quite as good as that, more like an SGS3 or 4 for battery life.

All of which have that extra gig of ram constantly draining power, which I suspect to be the culprit.

As for coming back, hope so. They're about 2 to 1 behind the SGS4 in One sales last I checked.

But selling it faster than the SGS3 for the same performance period last year.

That was a record setter too, so they're not doing badly with that model.

Agree that rooted LTEvo > stock Sammy. Believe that the other comparisons will have as many conflicting votes as there are users.

The multitasking borks for the LTEvo do require root to fix.

I get a lot of stuff running beyond just fine on a stock rooted rom with ram to spare, no AOSP required.

If they went with a dual-core, that tells me that Google is taking baby steps with regards to changing the attitude on Motorola. That's perfectly fine for me, as I still have another year until I'm upgrade eligible. Overall, it does seem like Google is showing good initiative to move Motorola in the right direction. My estimated timeframe for Google to really instill their influence in 2 years from the formal purchase (which wasn't finalized, until around this time last year). So, Google has made much faster progress with Motorola than I anticipated, but I'm looking at the Moto X as a new beginning. The true tell will be their superphone next year. That said, I am still very intrigued to see what this year's X phone will look and feel like.

Heck, if there's a way for Google to market this phone, So You Think You Can Dance is in its 10th season, which could be a great opportunity to market the X Phone. X= Roman Numeral 10

If this is true, then I think that it's one of the dumbest campaigns ever -

http://phandroid.com/2013/06/25/goodbye-moto-x-ad/

If this is true, then I think that it's ugly -

http://phandroid.com/2013/06/26/motorola-moto-x-sprint-picture/



Then again, no reason to believe that this is the production model.

Or anything a good case wouldn't hide.

Sounds like it will be a decent upper-mid level phone.

If the rumored specs are true, this is probably on par with the LTEvo or SGS3, two phones I don't consider down and out just yet.

An interesting differentiator will be if it's going to be a Nexus experience phone.

Motorola may yet come out with a better model this year, but I agree, we'd be unlikely to see it.

Meanwhile, if the radios are solid, battery life delivers, the camera is decent, and they price it reasonably, they're likely to sell quite a few I think.

Which processor will be interesting. Until the Snapdragon 800 hits, all of the quads are needing a separate modem chip, not exactly a step forward from the Snapdragon S4 in that regard.

PS - Apple's desktop os, OS X, is supposed to be pronounced OS TEN, but no one does. Just imagining the lawyers lmao.

Did they confirm that the dual will be the Snapdragon S4 though? I think that's the only thing that's completely up in the air. Marketing is going to be the key, if Google wants to see any kind of success out of the X Phone, because the rumored specs won't be enough for the "die hards" to fall in line.

As for Apple OS X...you better believe their lawyers are probably on standby waiting to claim Copyright infringement on "X"...ROFLMAO.

I'm surprised they haven't claimed copyright infringement on any company that uses a lower case "i" at the beginning of their company name (e.g. iBolt, iHome, iWannaKickMyselfInTheHeadWithUsingi'sSoMuch).

Nothing but rumors on the specs so far as I know, but if not the Snapdragon S4, then likely the 400 and that has the programmable world modem on board.

Wow, I thought the marketing prelude was bad enough.

In other news, executives congratulate each other on a job well done while managing to accomplish less than nothing.

LOL...I saw that and thought, I wonder if Google is really just experimenting in this 1st year. They're already in bed with the deal, so 1st year will be trial and error? I'm sure they did projections, prior to finalizing the deal, so they had to expect P&L (Profit and Loss, for those not familiar with this) won't improve for the first couple years.

That's what I am currently doing. Haven't fully jumped ship yet. But T-mobile isn't going to be where I am going after my experience. Too much 2G, and not enough 3G or HSPA+. Big cities are decently equipped, but the moment you travel outside of one, BAM, EDGE!

Even in big cities (since I'm in LA), T-mobile is great in certain areas, but as soon as you go into an area in the hills, good luck even getting Edge! There are two (2) providers (ATT, T-Mobile) that get absolutely no signal at my house, where Verizon has minimal signal and Sprint is the strongest. Throughout the years, this has remained fairly consistent, which is why I've stuck around. The only provider I'd consider transferring over to is T-Mobile, but considering no signal at my house, that's an automatic deal breaker.

Leaked pics of the LG G2
New LG G2 leak gives us a very clear look at the device

Very nice looking (although, I thought the Optimus G looked good too, so I'm not surprised). I don't see a microSD slot though, so they may have stuck with the original concept as they had on the Optimus G last year.

I love the fact that it has on screen buttons. The front looks beautiful. I don't like the back though. Anyway, I hear that the next Nexus will be based off this phone.
