Honestly? To each his own, right?
You either want camera buttons, or you don't.
You either want a microSD slot, or you don't.
You either want a removable battery, or you don't.
So on and so forth.

It seems to me that the issue here between GG and JSY is that
GG completely bashed the Amaze and glorified the One S.
It shouldn't be that way. You like what you like. It's not a My Phone v. Your Phone thing.
It's just preference right?

I feel like every phone has it's pros and cons. No phone is "perfect".
If there were a perfect phone, we'd all be using it and never upgrading or buying new phones.
Afterall, how can you improve "perfect"?
And to be honest, perfect is a relative term when it comes to phones on this forum.
EVERYONE wants something different.

I hope that I didn't offend anyone with this post. I do apologize.
Feel free to quote and flame me, my feelings won't get hurt.

I just hope we can settle this issue by saying:
"Hey...our phones are different. You like what you like and I like what I like. Let's leave it at that."
Best post in this whole thread. Wayne can come in here and give a more objective opinion because he's owned both phones and I trust his opinion on this one. Now asking him about one s vs s3 is a different story...

You either contribute to the discussions on XDA, or you take something away from it.. and you decide which it is. I could say much worse than that right now, but I'm not going to bother.



It was a joke, and I think others would agree, you had it coming with a post like that, so lighten up

I'm about to go read your earlier posts in this thread to see how you glorified the HTC one.. but I have a feeling better development has to be a bit reason! I wasn't awesome-sauce enough to keep you around?? I'm hurt. Now I may need to go stalk whatever forums you're more active in, just so you don't miss the pain in the ass I am!


There is some sort of button or failsafe or something that most non-removable battery android devices have.. like on my nook color, holding the power button for 8 seconds is the equivalent of pulling the battery.
You're right, someone on a tighter budget, or someone more price aware would have to weigh the pros/cons of contract/no-contract versus cost of phone.. Since I always void warranties as soon as I get a device, buying used for cheaper and going without contract is the only option I consider. I've personally played with a HTC one a bit, and I don't see ENOUGH improvements over the amaze that I would consider it an upgrade - at least not when I'd be losing battery and external sd card access.
I wouldn't recommend the HTC one as an upgrade to someone that owns an amaze already, but user experience IS a big part of the whole thing.. so I can see why some people focus so much on development. All us amaze owners can do it push to get development rocking here, which may require some new contributors, and maybe an attitude change of some of the newer people here(if they want anyone to keep trying)..
Yup, if you hold both volume buttons down and push the power button it shuts it off/ goes into bootloader.

just got back from tmobile where i had a chance to look at the one s and the s3. i must say the s3 has the most beautiful screen ive ever seen on any phone. literally it was stunning. the phone itself felt more sturdy than the s2 did. i personally wasnt impressed at all by the one s, although i do believe it to be an awesome phone for htc fanboys to each his own tho, i just know in a few days, my s3 will be in hand
