Why the lack of microSD may be a problem.

Tip us?

So where am I going to store all my music? The 32GB microSD I have is running out already. This phone is useless for me because of that sole reason..

nope, as said: virtual sd-partition.
the touch diamond was the same story.
4GB internal Mem. not efected by flashing, hardreset etc. im not sure at this moment, but i have in mind, that you coukd access the int.mem even in the bootloader.
or just flash a stock rom and youre in.

and if your hardware's dead, then you've got other problems
but in that case you can replace nearly everything on htc-devices.
on the diamon i replaced a broken display and some speakerstuff successfully.

but the inbuild battery could be a pain in the 4$$: what if the system freezes? bsod or some thing? will there be any reset button like the good old WiMobile phones? i don't think so.

THAT is, what i am afraid of. but i will buy it anyway. it'll be a REALY great device, like the HD2 2,5years ago.

Yet again, the issue is abolished thanks to the 25gb free dropbox storage!

ur not gonna be able to listen to 32GB worth of music in a single sitting.. heck, 32GB of music will take more than a year.. unless ur a DJ or something, i dun think there is really a need to put your entire music collection on the phone.

secondly, a phone is used for other functions as well.. filling it up with music means less space for downloading email attachment, camera shots and etc..

that said, if u really need to store that much music, i suggest getting a dedicated music device (aka an ipod )..

hope i dun offend anyone for this blunt post..

(ps, in reality, user available space is 26gb if i am correct.. part of the 32gb is locked for htc as system space)

It will reboot when you hit on/off for 10 secs.this is hardcoded so it'll work anytime.

Is it a reboot or does it shut down after 10 seconds?
Because if the phone gets in a bootloop a reboot will not fix the problem.

Shutdown probably. I can't recall, where I read it, sorry. But I am certain that htc has this problem covered.
There is already a thread about this: CLICK

I'm so happy that i don't listen to music with my phone.. xD
go buy some proper music player with an SD Slot for this, and you got a better audioquality too.. (cowon ftw.)

32gb are more than enough for me. and it was clear that the internal memory is emulated as SD Card. so that all apps are able to function.

I don't care about the lack of the SD Card..

more do i care about the non removable battery.......
not because the reset if it freezes (there will be the 4-secs-instant-poweroff i guess) but because the batterylife itself..

i'm used to have a spare battery.. instantly back to 100%..
this will be a big problem for me. i just hope HTC made some BIG improvements in this case, or this phone will be a fail
HTC HD2 (T8585) | 16GB SDHC (class 4)
WinMo -> CleanEX UniQ 655 Series V. 4.30
-> NAND Android -> HyperDroid CM7 v5.9.0
- HTC One X. | Will it truly beat the legendary HD2?.. (Hint: It didn't.)
- Nexus 4 on Official AOKP.
-> OnePlus One
-> Nexus 5 on Cataclysm.
- Nexus7 3G (2012) on Official CM10.1 AOKP.
