Pretty much this. Had the OG Epic and the GS3. Wanted something different, plus the front speakers and having the charging and headphone jacks on the same end were huge selling points for me. Was leary off the camera, but so far it's great. 4mp is plenty for regular 4x6 prints. Those high mega pixels are really only better if you plan on blowing up pictures to poster size. And I would imagine, that if you were in need of pictures for something like that, you'd want to use an actual camera and not a phone camera of any type....lol

Only complaint I really have are the amount of useless icons in the status bar. What a mess! Hopefully that is something that can be fixed with future software updates. I couldn't care less about the spark icon, and do we really need a constant GPS icon whether it's on or off? Dumb...

Major complaint for me. The phone don't display the location of the area code you're calling or being called from. I really miss that feature hopefully HTC will give that back to us

I'm so sick of TW I decided to come back to HTC. I don't want to have to root and go to AOSP if I choose not. TW is such a hog and visual abortion that I couldn't in good conscience go to the band aid phone from my S4.
