Oh I see. Yeah this is my first HTC device. Thanks for the useful info. I didn't understand why I had to downgrade my HBOOT just to flash a radio. It's really different from a Samsung

Yeah it definitely is a lot more easier on Samsung phones...but you have to weigh your pros and cons and I believe HTc phones outweigh the cons...but new HTC devices are bootloader unlocked from HTC dev which only doesn't let you flash kernels through recovery and other things

I've found that the front camera is HARD to get dust out of

DONATE TO ME
Default Like/Dislike

I've been using Android phones since the original G1 and mostly have been sticking with Samsung phones. Captivate, SII, Skyrocket...I had a few mistakes when I tried the Motorola Backflip...ew. And an iPhone or two...hated them.

Like:
Build quality
Screen size
Sense
GPS is much better than Samsung

Dislike:
1.14 sucks. I miss being able to download ROMs on the go and flash them while sitting in traffic.
Removable battery. I liked being able to have an extra battery or an extended battery. I might go with one of the skins that have an included battery though.
Removable storage. I also liked being able to throw a MicroSD card in.
Battery charging location. I HATE that it's on the side. Makes it a PITA when trying to put it in a dock or use it while it's plugged in ...especially if the charging cable is on your right...
No supported version of CWM

Probably going to go back to Samsung when I get a chance. I love this phone, it's very nice and elegant but Samsung phones are just more flash friendly, IMHO.

Great phone though.
Flashaholic since the original G1.
