If you really think the DIALER is ok, please just try using ExDialer or DialerOne (note: I do not recommend either as they have both switched to nag/trial-ware, I am still trying to find a replacment) for a day or two just to experience the difference it makes. To me it is night and day. As I said, the HTC Hero running Sense 1.0 had the perfect dialer (copied from the WinMo5 days)... other apps just copy that. I can't believe Samsung, iOS, Google/LG, and modern HTC don't do the dialer "right" (by my standards yes, but if you TRY it I think most people will agree).
Edit: Just turning off the instant upload sounds great and all, but thats the only way I have been getting pictures off of my phone since the G+ app was released (I prefer that to DropBox, and G+ was first to do it). HTC Zoe has a major drawback that you cannot use that feature properly (and they INCLUDE dropbox and suggest you to enable photo upload on first use!).
No, I'm not. I'm happy to let this thread die, but don't lie about me. I am a Google fan-boy, HTC enthusiast that wanted to love this phone. I do still love this phone other all other phones, I just hate all phones these days. The hardware gets better, but the software gets worse. They do not try to be universally compatible between (or even have separate flagships for) lefties/righties, businesspeople/collegekids/teens, and novice/general/power users. It is all about what is popular these days, which is influenced more by marketing and what copying the best selling one does rather than true preference and useful innovation.
This phone has innovation written all over it, which is why my hopes were so high. Learning that it just doesn't work for me is a real let down.
EDIT: What do you mean only turn it on on WiFi. I never want my DropBox/G+ flooded with 30 copies of each picture whether on WiFi or not!
4) The menu [...] sucks.
5) The Dialer.
6) The Launcher.
7) Call-quality / Volume!
9) Build quality.
10) Google Wallet? Even on the DevEdition it is not compatible? WTF?
11) Google Voice as voice-mail won't work:
12) GMail (JB issue).
There are many more nit-picks bother me (gets hot, is heavy, no slideout keyboard), but this list are the important ones for me right now.
Is this a joke? Some of these are silly.
1) Who just turns their phone off when they're out and about in 2013? Really? Plus, if you have it silenced, it won't play a boot sound.
