HTC Amaze 4G

 

Potent processor and hardware ; Great camera ; Extra recording button is odd, but useful ; HTC promises quick Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) upgrade ; HTC Sense is great for first-time smartphone users

Strange design ; Mediocre battery life ; 4.3-inch screen may be too large for some ; LCD screen cannot match the color of AMOLED ; Camera can get a little hyper

While we're not sure it's actually worth $60 more than any other dual-core phone, the HTC Amaze 4G holds its own and excels when it comes to taking pictures and video.

HTC Amaze 4G review

 

With no iPhone to run the show, T-Mobile has three flagship phones, all very similar: the HTC Amaze 4G, HTC Sensation 4G, and Samsung Galaxy S II. Like the others, the $259.99-with-contract Amaze runs a skinned version of Android on a huge, gorgeous...

Stellar camera ; Big, high-resolution screen ; Fast performance

Large and heavy ; Outdated software ; Bad battery life

Does the HTC Amaze 4G live up to its name or is it just another Android phone in T-Mobile's arsenal?

HTC Amaze 4G review: Upping the ante

 

HTC Amaze 4G is joining the über-smartphone ranks in the United States at a time, when the competition has reached its peak. The device is part of the first wave of smartphones, capable of reaching 42Mbps on T-Mobile's HSDPA network. It was launched...

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 42 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 4.3" 16M-color capacitive LCD touchscreen of qHD resolution (540 x 960 pixels); Gorilla glass ; Android OS v2.3.4 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 3.0 ; 1.5 GHz dual Scorpion CPUs,...

Screen performance is not on par with the best offerings ; At 173 grams, the device is downright heavy ; microSD card slot is located under the cover ; No headphones enclosed in the retail package ; Battery life is questionable

T-Mobile reveals HTC Amaze 4G, flaunts better camera and faster HSPA+Ericsson demos 42Mbps HSPA Evolution for the laypeopleSamsung

Attractive design ; HSPA+ / theoretical 42Mbps network speeds ; Easily accessible camera and camcorder shortcuts

Washed out qHD display ; Short battery life with moderate usage ; Handling the phone is slightly uncomfortable

Despite being one of T-Mob's first HSPA+ 42Mbps phones, HTC's Amaze 4G fails to stun with its subpar battery life and washed out qHD display.

HTC Amaze 4G (white, T-Mobile)

 

It was only four months ago that T-Mobile and HTC released the MyTouch 4G Slide, touting the Android handset as having the most advanced camera of any smartphone, but it appears the Slide's reign was shortlived. Now, the new HTC Amaze 4G holds that...

The HTC Amaze 4G features a premium chassis, a sharp Super LCD touch screen, and a dual-core processor. It's equipped with an 8-megapixel camera with a number of advanced shooting modes and settings. T-Mobile's HSPA+ 42 speeds were impressive

The smartphone is heavy and expensive. The camera still struggled in low-light environments

The HTC Amaze 4G is a beautifully designed and fast Android smartphone, with some advanced camera features, but don't go ditching your point-and-shoot camera just yet.

HTC Amaze 4G

 

The HTC Amaze 4G backs up its gorgeous design with fast 4G speeds and one of the best cameras you can get in a smartphone.

The Amaze 4G is undoubtedly one of the best-looking Android phones around, and HTC and T-Mobile back up those good looks with a fast processor, a fantastic camera, and impressive 4G speeds (at least on the download). The ultra-premium design and...

HTC Amaze 4G (T-Mobile)

 

The phone uses T-Mobile's HSPA+ 42 network and 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi. It connected to my WPA2-encrypted Wi-Fi network without a problem. It also works as a tethered modem or Wi-Fi hotspot with the right service plan. Download speeds were downright...

Fast. Beautiful, high-res screen. Solid HSPA+ 42 speeds. Terrific Web performance. Excellent camera features

Expensive. Heavy. HDMI out requires an adapter

The HTC Amaze 4G has a big beautiful screen, a great camera, and fast HSPA+ 42 speeds, making it a top choice for Android smartphones on T-Mobile.

HTC Amaze 4G vs Samsung Galaxy S II

The HTC Amaze 4G is an unofficial response to the Samsung Galaxy S II with specs to match: a 4.3” qHD Super LCD display, dual core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S3 processor, 8MP camera with 1080p recording, 16GB of internal memory, NFC and 42Mbps HSPA+ data all...

HTC Amaze 4G Review: A Smartphone for Shutterbugs

 

It's currently available from T-Mobile for $260 with a new two-year service contract and a $50 mail-in rebate

Slightly unusual design and two color choices, white or black ; Good screen ; Responsive and easy to use ; Great camera

Voice quality is good, but not great ; Battery life is slightly disappointing ; Annoying interference if I put it down too close to my laptop

If you're more interested in taking photos of your daily adventures and sharing them with your friends than in showing off your phone, the Amaze could be a good choice for you
