Wow there is so much wrong info in this thread! 1. The T-mobile One S will have 42mps HSPA+ on the AWS 1700/2100 bands. If the country does not support those it will fall to 2g/Edge speeds. If your mytouch 4g had 4g signal where you was at then you will get 4G on the One S from T-mobile USA since they are on the same bands. 2. Rumors say that T-mobile is getting a One X variant called the G4X with the Tegra 3 running stock ICS a sequel to Lg's G2X with the Tegra 2.

P.S. To respond to another post the Dual Core Qualcomm S4 IS NOT A DOWNGRADE from the Tegra 3 they are both very powerful.

The S not having NFID and only 16GB pretty much breaks it. So, I was hoping the X would come as well. How sure are you that we're only getting the S?





Okay, seriously, I'm going to bed. I will check this in the morning.
I have my girls amaze unlocked and rooted. Running a custom recovery, rom with faux amaze custom kernel. You don't need s-off to root the amaze or flash.
Also, in the topic of s-off, a few known devs already figures s-off for the amaze. They are just finishing test before posting the how to.

I'm not 100% sure of tmo just getting the one s but it is all over the net that tmo is getting only the one s and att the one x. No matter which, I still won't be getting one.

Just a random thought from an amaze owner, if you want an amazing phone that works then go with the amaze but there's not a big dev scene at all. If you want ROMs and development and all that, go with a One series phone - I agree with the analogy to the sensation and how the One series will have tons of development for being international. The amaze really is a fantastic phone that is barely beat by the One S, except in size cuz the One S is way thin! Other than thinness, development is the only reason I would consider getting a One S or X (the permanent battery and microsd are really annoying, too).

Yeah, do I think the way to go its just to see what will happen when I get back. Maybe we'll get lucky and the rumors of us getting a variant of the X is true.

Since these come out in April, I might be waiting a while until the next Bugatti HTC comes out..

But, I do need both S-off and root.

How would a European X work on T-Mo's 4G?

I have been looking around for a new phone too but I think I am just going to keep the MT4G. The ICS Roms for it are running great and the awesome virtuous sense 4 rom is almost ready for prime time. The international One X looks pretty nice. I am not completely sold on the One S.

I wish t-mo had an htc phone that was like the Galaxy Note. Hopefully soon.

I'm not at all sold on the S. But, is the Virtuous Sense 4 Rom on ICS?

1. With the Amaze, you get a cheaper (price-wise not quality) phone than the One S/X.

2. Barely any difference in the Amaze and the One S power-wise.

3. One S does not have an SD-card slot so you're stuck with 16 GB forever on that phone. Amaze has 16 GB internal memory AND has an SD card slot that will work with 64GB microSD.

4. One S/X do not have removeable batteries, so if they go bad, you have to send the whole phone back for repair/replacement. Also can't carry extra batteries with you to switch out during a long day.

5. I've read that the ceramic cases on the One series have been chipping (poor build quality?).

6. Amaze is supported by Madmaxx's 4EXT recovery, so it can flash kernels from recovery without S-OFF (S-OFF exploit has been discovered though and will probably be released soon).

7. One S/X will have Sense 4.0, while the Amaze should have 3.6 (if you like Sense).

8. One S/X will have ICS right out of the box. Amaze should be receiving it soon.

9. The Amaze's capacitive buttons cause a light bleed on the screen (these can be turned off with root access).

In the end though, the choice is yours. I personally feel like the One S is a downgrade from the Amaze without the microSD. Also (just a small correction to something you wrote) we do have root on this phone.
Devices:
32 GB Google Nexus 5 - Stock 4.4.2 - Rooted
16 GB Google Nexus 4 - sold
HTC Ruby (Amaze 4G) - sold

HTC Glacier (MyTouch 4G) - sold

Yeah, you're forgetting the fact that the One S won't have the NFID Chip. This is the whole thing I really want.

Yes, I LOVE Sense! But, really, I think I'll go with the Amaze. Unless there's speculation on the next Bugatti HTC coming to T-Mo after the One S. Because, the let's face it, when the MT4G came out, it was the Bugatti of phones at that time. The One S is more like the Lambo.

Just to give a slight rebuttal to a couple of things. I do agree the Amaze is a very nice phone. The Amaze S3 soc is very nice but he S4 is more future proof it's arguably the fastest soc out now!

The T-mo USA is only getting the blur/silver version as of now, which does not have the coating issue.

And which has already been mentioned before the One S will have vastly more custom rom development then the Amaze.
