HTC Amaze 4G Silent Video Walkthrough

In the spirit of todays double trouble HTC Amaze 4G videos we’re giving you the gift of one more video shot by the lucky individual who is truly enjoying his time with the Amaze 4G. We’ve seen speed tests and we’ve seen the browser so this time it’s a whole video walkthrough of the phone.

This time a change was made as this video was shot in silence so all of your attention can be focused on the video itself while you, the T-Mobile customer continue the arduous decision process between this and the Samsung Galaxy S II. Enjoy!

    Can we get some GSII vids already!

    • Frigadroid

      After the big announcement they quickly locked them back up into the glass case. They aren’t as stupid as they usually seem they want to sell as many pre orders as possible before the teche wizkids find all the rest of the problems and start to blog about it.
      I have a feeling this new 42mbs 4g combo is just going to be a letdown and battery drain for most the people are out of range.

        Ha ha I can imagine them doing that. Its probably “unfinished”.

    • J. Williams

      Pimp. If you are waiting on the GSII, you are gonna love it. I have it already, and it’s much better than this phone.

        Data speeds?

        • J. Williams

          About 9mb in my house and 14 or more at my office.

        Whaaaat? You have it?

          I cant be too excited about the Sprint version being awesome considering the tmo version has a damn qualcomm in it.

          How is TW4 though? I would miss TW if I got a prime though.

        • J. Williams

          The T-Mobile version did not impress me, so I went with the Sprint version. I don’t like snapdragons and I don’t like the look of the T-Mobile version. Sprint it is. Also, there is no throttle on Sprint ans I love it.

    I think my decision has been made. I’ll just stick to what I know, and that’s with HTC. Samsung and T-Mobile fffed up the Galaxy S II. Oh well, Qualcomm, HTC have had a very long partner ship together. Before people start bashing me, Yes, I know the GSII has the same processor, but I think I prefer what I’ve had in the past.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CNT4STRR32F4334TXB65VVNT3Y Rampage

      It’s your choice! They can bash you all they want! They are both great phones but personally I really like an LED notification light and that’s one feature that is missing on the T-mobile S2. I’m still undecided though beause I like the looks of the GS2 more.

  • chicanh

    why the memory not 16 gb

  • qckndrty

    I played with one of these tonight at the Tmo store.  Felt solid, fast, nice looking, great cam.  

  • Auser72

    I thought I had my mind up for SGS2, but I don’t know now.

    • J. Williams

      Don’t get this. Wait for the Galaxy S II. You will not be happy if you get this over the Galaxy S II.

      • Auser72

        I think I would be happy with either one, but I probably will go for SGS2 because of display.

        • Anonymous

          the amaze has higher resolution and higher pixel density, whereas the samsung has higher contrast ratio. I wish they both had both lol. However, the camera on the amaze is what did it for me. gotta go with the better camera. 

        • UnknownOne1993

          The amaze uses the same camera as the mytouch 4g slide. I don’t have the link on me but if you look for the camera quality comparison between the gsII, the mytouch 4g slide, and the n8, the mytouch comes last. The only camera benefits this has over the gsII is a dedicated camera button and the multiple effects. It all comes down to personal preference, but if you’re going specifically for quality, then the gsII is the better choice.

        • Vibrant4G

          I would say neither of those crappy phones. 
          Just wait for the prime and PERIOD

        • Jabombardier

          and what if the prime is crappy?

        • larson

          Why would you think that? 
          was the nexus one crappy? no… 
          was the nexus s crappy? not at all, right?

      • Anonymous

        How do you know?

        • J. Williams

          The GSII is a powerhouse, first hand knowledge.  I was at the Tmo Store with my Epic 4G Touch, and they were playing with the Amaze.  All of their jaws dropped when I pulled out my phone, and they wanted to all play with it.  Also, I think Samsung and HTC makes a great phone, but the GSII has proven to be flawless.

  • Willingi001

    please can we get some sgs2 vids

    • Realcool2000

      Just wait for the sgs2 page….this is the htc amaze page…just so u know.

  • Youngt82

    The more and more i look at this phone , i am happier with my rooted sensation 4g sense 3.5 1.5ghz :) onlyyyyyy thing missing is the dedicated camera button and 42mps other than that passsssss lol but the Nexus Prime will be mine next and i hope its T-Mobile ready like the previous Nexus phones:)

  • Trezz09

    When ppl say one phone is “better” when they have similar specs, what do they really mean? (Serious Question). At that point, isn’t it just a preference issue?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VGQMRQOQYPZHFOGRIZ53F646KU Not ice_fusion.

      These days, it’s all about brand loyalty so there’s that (such as HTC vs Samsung vs Motorola… etc). Build quality could also be factored in to the equation. 

      Then you have the people with tunnel vision who find something so amazing that they see nothing else and view it as a personal insult if you don’t prefer their particular choice in phone – so there’s that.

  • kir

    i’ve used the amaze and it’s fast as hell. gs2 will sell way more simply because the amaze is so heavy and thick. only complaint.

    • Navy

      I just wish some T-Mobile branded Galaxy S II vids would surface. Really want to see if the original benchmark of 3359 was just a fluke or if the mobilesyrup reviewer, f’ed the benchmark up, or maybe didnt have a finish version. Either way gs2. Just want to make sure its as fast, with a 2250 it looks smooth but not quick as the other variants, no doubt due snapdragon instead of Exynos. But thx for bringing this beast to us Tmobile

      • whosaidwhat

        when did the Tmoible version benchmark that high? 

  • Minioninnc

    Amaze here I come!

  • Yancy

    I don’t understand why everyone has to bitc& about the qualcomm processor when they will choose the amaze which has the exact same processor. I don’t mind the change and am excited to see 42 chip in phones and not just a data stick. Thanks T-Mobile!

  • Luvferrari

    i’m not gonna decide until the dust clears after the dogfight between SG2 and Amaze!  

    Even better, I’d love to see a final showdown (as in the movie “The Good, The Bad, The Ugly”) involving the Nexus Prime!

      In the cnet prize fight the Sensation beat the SGII

    • Anonymous

      A good old cellphone threesome!

  • Jabombardier

    the examples you used are poor and aren’t proving your poin. the galaxy sII in this video uses exynos… it seems because of past experience of the single core snapdragon and the adreno GPU, their dual core snapdragon is going to the same thing. perception is poor.

  • Jabombardier

    well because i never had a samsung smart phone, i will pick the Galaxy SII. and the snapdragon will perform very well.

  • Dave

    Can you save video to the internal memory? like on my vibrant I can save a video I watch on espn

  • TMOEMPLOYEE69

    i have this phone in my store and it lags from time to time and the 42Mbps is wack…dont get the phone get the galaxy s2

    • Mikex915

      So get a different phone with the same hardware and thats going to solve the issue?

      • Pipelinedrew

        but mikex915 could they really be identical in speed,access. etc even if they share the same processor? doesnt the UI make some difference? just curious i have no idea myself

    • souggie

      For real, I played with it at my local tmobile store in Riverdale ga, today, the only difference between the amaze and the sensation is that the amaze had a peak of 17-18mbps down on the 4g, but the internal memory is not 16gb, its actually 9.73gb, and despite the up in processor speeds, its only about as fast as a sensation, really is just a beefed up sensation…It’s nothing to call home about..imho

  • Anonymous

    I have to say it…. the new galaxy S 2 is better imo.  

  • Eric Filarski

    Have to Agree My new SGS2 is better.  And while Sprint phones have Carrier IQ on them we can already remove it.  Now the big question is does this (which it most likely does have it) have the HTCloggers.apk file which if it does will require it to be rooted to remove.  Pretty sad that HTC did this I’ve lost my faith in HTC not from this alone but for a lot of other reasons.

    The T-Mobile GSII will not measure up to the other versions. The amaze is not amazing at all…

  • Lisa.

    Does anybody know if the Amaze battery would be able to fit into the Sensation? That’s all i’m interested in, really. No I don’t know how to root my Sensation, and no i’m not interested in rooting it to get a longer battery life. I’ll happily buy an Amaze battery and put it into my Sensation if it fits.

  • Kevin Kerr

    The black levels….THEY BURN!

  • Brazilianguy

    I like the sensation better,I only change for the nexus prime…
