If HTC fixes the MAO treatment on the black/red accent version of the ONE S, that'll replace my old G2. I used to believe that I couldn't live without a hardware keyboard too. But after playing (at length) with multiple devices w/o a qwerty, the Sensation and the G2X, I have to say it's so much easier without it. Coming from the Cliq before the G2, I never thought I'd say that... but no more hardware keyboard for me.

I think about getting the Galaxy Nexus. Anyway, it will definitely be an Android phone. But for now, I'm gonna use my money for getting a new laptop.

I hate when people change their phone because a new model is out.

It's killing me, what a waste. Rare metals are very very very bad for the environment, because china dont care how about to get it out of the ground. Lot of chemical processes.

This is a reason why I dont get a apple. I love the product, but hate the apple fans. For them its to ''mainstream'' to have a ONE year old iphone.

I had a motorola krzr for 5 years. Then my hipster friend gave me a 3gs (how crap this phone is) wifi broke, bluetooth and gps stop working because of a baseband update. I use it for 7 months.

Then I got this G2 since the first week Bell has it.

My next one? If my G2 dies? Probably an HTC again.

Samsung, no thanks. My brother using a galaxy s2, he broke the screen and its expansive to repair since the digitizer is heat glued on the amoled screen. What a discussable design.

I'm seriously hoping there'll be a new nice HWkeyboard-phone out later this year, or maybe Q1 2013

Elsewise i might go for a galaxy note round that time. I figured that since there won't be any highend 3.5" smartphones anymore, I might as well go all the way with large phones. I guess it will be an improvement on the experience of anything but calling.

In HTC we trust.

I'm hoping for their next slider, but if it doesn't have decent specs (an S4 Krait and at at least 768MB of (actual) RAM, then I'll probably hold on to the DZ and buy a One S sometime later.

I'm pretty disappointed with the fact HTC makes their phones more iPhone-esque (can't change the battery, can't use SDcards and the overall build quality/design seems inferior, when compared to our Desire Z)

Me too... it also makes me a little nervous, though I'm sure there are work-arounds for the problems I'm imagining... removable batteries and SD cards just seem pretty essential on rooted devices. Obviously this is not the case, but all the same, I wish HTC hadn't locked down the One series.

I would guess the workaround for no removable batteries would be a hard reset button (one not tied to software). Again, if the "sdcard" is a different chip in their devices there should be no issues.

Even so, I would definitely prefer having physical access...
