blanket statements like this one ftw!

i've picked up another amaze (coming from sensation), and i can tell i like this phone more so than sensation. development aside, amaze is a great phone. my biggest gripe right now is the battery life, but i can live with that if you can pick it up for a good price, i'd go for it.

Oh, I know. Still AOSP on the G2x is better than anything else. Its the same problem. NVidia won't let us have the drivers.
That maybe true..... but guess what.... At least we had MIUI ...... on the Amaze we will never have the MIUI rom...... A REAL MIUI rom..... because of stupid a$$ HTC..... like I said before.... THIS IS MY FIRST AND LAST HTC PRODUCT...... THEY CAN KISS MY A$$ GOODBYE AS SOON AS SGS3 COMES OUT....

G2x was a really easy phone to have.... I could flash virtually everything I wanted.... I felt invincible ....... I never ran into so many problems as I have with the Amaze.... Locked bootloaders.... or wrong bootloaders just to get SuperCID .... Stupid Sense rom..... HTC updates messing up my power menu..... screen shots not working.... I went through a lot of crap in the learning process....

All problems I never had with the G2x.....

The biggest problem with this phone is that the battery life is beyond terrible - worse than any phone I've had in the past. I mainly use my phone (or any of my smartphones for that matter) to respond to business emails and texts. My phone doesn't even last half of the day without needing a full recharge.

I had a G2X and although I wasn't too fond of its build quality (especially how the screen is not completely flat), I would suggest that you stick with it. There aren't too many improvements (in my opinion) that justifies the jump.
Personal experience speaks louder than professional experience (2nd hand)... But from what I've encountered at work I would disagree strongly.

The G2x... From how many always came through my door with problem after problem after problem is SERIOUSLY the most unstable phone I've experienced in 6 years time. That may be an exaggeration, but its certainly on my top 5 problematic pain in the ass phones ever. Avoid it like the plague (no offense).

Seen a couple dozen amazes leave and not ONE has EVER come back with any issues. Mine has been flawless.

Hatteryife has been average for any android device. If the battery runs low, just plug it in. No big deal.
