      Agreed. Major turn off!!

      • Giraffe

        Okay, seriously folks?  There are federal laws regarding microUSB compatibility… suffice to say it will be able to charge with microUSB.

        You kids will do anything to flamewar a phone… seriously.

          What federal law would that be?

        • http://twitter.com/StevenJStockton Steven Jaye

          Can you please tell me about this federal law?
          I know the International Telecommunication Union decided to standardize
          it. How do you explain the IPhone?

        • Rush8220

          The us doesn’t have a standard charger, the micro USB is standard in Europe so i don’t know what ur talking about. Most of the phone are in Europe as far as I know there is no standard the USA.

    • Deon Davis

      The Amaze has a mhl port which is a hybrid usb/hdmi port. It will take a standard micro usb plug also.

      • MNBug

        Ah good.  Anger subsiding  :)

  • Robert Turner

    Charger is a deal breaker…. seriously no micro-usb? We really doing that htc? maybe its still compatible with micro usb? All they did is make the shape a little funky.

      It takes a Micro USB charger as well.

      • tmorep

        Idk.. i tried pugging in a micro plug and it didnt go in.. didnt want to break the demo. Maybe when i have more time playing with it ill jam it in there lol

    Maannnnn eff that noise – no way I’m getting a phone with a proprietary charger.

    yep, charger is a deal breaker for me as well, does HTC bother doing customer surveys?

      LOL well its a good thing this comes out on the 12th!

      Seriously, the fact that this and the GSII come out the day after ICS is announced is a humongous relief.

  • Deon Davis

    Once again people the Amaze has a mhl port which is a hybrid usb/hdmi port. It will take a standard micro usb plug also.

      thanks for the info!

      I was wondering what the heck the was…

    your able to use Micro USB to charge it aslo

      Looks like they just decided to reinforce it but still keep it compatible.  Not a bad idea I say.

  • Anonymous

    my only beef is the charging port location…..id rather it be on the bottom of the phone….on the issue of quadrant scores……does anything think that the sense ui may play a role in “lower than expected” scores?

    • Anonymous

      I tell you what, that’s the best spot for the charger while using the phone in landscape but don’t plan on the phone with your left hand in portrait.

    • Anonymous

      The scores are no different than that of the Sensation and hell even the less bloated Hercules. This processor leaves much to be desired.

  • Oreo

    Does anyone know how much ROM memory it has? I know the GS2 has 2 Gigs of ROM. It would help me in making a decision.

    • tmorep

      2.4 gigs

    • tmorep

      2.4 gigs

      • Oreo

        So it actually has more then the GS2. Wow, now for some reason I’m surprised ha ha.

  • Earn

    Just got the sensation. I was thinking of getting this but it’s not that much of an upgrade from what I have. I’ll wait on this one.

  • Jaygqitalia

    Does it have a front facing cam. If not, then ill just get the galaxy

    • Minhaj Masud

    Great specs.  I just wish the speaker grill didn’t look so much like that of the myTouch line.  And what’s up with the volume rocker bing put on the other side and the charging port moving up to where the volume rocker used to be?  I like the camera button but I think I’ll keep my Sensation.

      its so you can zoom in when useing the camera

  • JBLMOBILEG1

    With all these new phones released I really wish Tmobile would let current customers who want to upgrade, upgrade after a year and still get a decent deal on the phone. While I like my G2 its starting to show its age spec wise to everything that’s coming out. I would like to have a bigger screen with a dual core processor and a camera that’s 8mp that takes instant pictures with no lag…. Not to mention the front facing camera. Oh well I still have at least another year and there is no way I could or even would pay for the phone outright. On the brightside… the G2 still has life in it even though Tmobile discontinued it.

    • Android00

      T-Mobile does allow upgrade after a year ..
      0-12 months=full price
      12-17 months=early upgrade
      18-21 months= early upgrade plus
      22+= full upgrade

      Unless your Em+ or value of course

      Only fair considering the subsidizing ..

      • Anonymous

        They allow it especially if you have been with them for 3years

      Come to my store, I will hook you up with a full upgrade at 12+ mos.

    looks pretty good but not as good as the SGS 2!!! plus i’m using Sensation right now and i’m sick and tired of laggy battery draining Sense UI… hopefully this Amaze will have much better battery life than the Sensation.. either way both SGS 2 and Amaze looks good… recently i’ve been getting horrible horrible service with tmobile…. dropped calls, text wouldn’t go or come in, 4g turns off very often, data switches from 4G to EDGE very often…. what’s going on?

      That’s why you have to root. I’m using a Rom that has my CPU at 1.5 ghz and not only that the phone is lightning fast and smooth but the battery is excellent. It feels like I have a 300 Mah battery seriously. That Rom is android revolution HD.

    • Mastrorj

      ive had the same problem ever since i switched to my Sensation as well. SGS2 is in my future or the nexus prime. Very curious to see if we get the Nexus Prime bc i know verizon passed on the SGS2 for the prime, doesnt mean its exclusive to them but i just thought it might. I wanna See the revamped Ice Cream Sandwich.

        Don’t we always get a nexus? Why is this even a question? I question more so the validity of Verizon getting a nexus as they never had one. I doubt if they get one that it will be a nexus or even so a TRUE nexus. If it’s just a droid prime it doesn’t count.

        • Anonymous

          VZW’s is supposed to be a Galaxy Prime, no Nexus involded.  But you gotta admit that it feels like this time around we may not get the Nexus this year.

          What I see happening is VZW gets first dibs on the the next gen Android just like they did with the OG Droid and 2.0.  It won’t be a Nexus but it will be an equivalent.  

          We’re seeing certifications for VZW’s Prime and a European Nexus but what about the rest of us??

          We’ll see soon enough though.  I hope my hunch is just that.

        • Anonymous

          Man I take it back about VZW’s phone being a Nexus but I guess I’m right about the exclusivity part.  

          “Next should be the Google Nexus Prime, which has been rumored to have a November 3rd launch date. This is scheduled to be the first Android phone running Ice Cream Sandwich and the early word is that Verizon will have an undisclosed period where the phone will be exclusive to Big Red.”

    The port/charger is def a different one than micro-usb but a micro charger still works. Weird but stupid at the same time that its shaped differently

  • Jackofalltracks

    On Tmo’s website talk time for the amaze is 6hr and the sensation is 8hr. Considering the battery life on the sensation sucks i can only imagine how bad the battery life on the amaze will be. Interestingly enough, the battery life on the sg2 is “min 4hr”. What the crack?

    Also a cursory look at the comparison chart shows the sg2 with a qwerty keyboard and the sensation lacking wifi sharing, however i’ve heard from other sources that sensation does have wifi sharing. 

    Anyhow, back to my point, the battery life will be worse on these new phones.

      Depends on how you use your phone the only thing I worry about is the upped possible4g speeds and the current caps on data with the average speeds of 8-10mbps in a 4g area you will go through a 5gb data cap in 3 weeks of frequent use if you use it like a smartphone should maybe even in less time. As far as battery goes keep a charger with you always though I only charge once a day on my sensation 2 on a day that I use it a lot

  • Myunitisz

    micro charger doesnt work tried it yesterday

    • Ohgeez10

      Yes it does. I’m a TMO rep and I was tinkering around with our store’s Amaze and I plugged in a regular charger and it worked.

    Just give me the Nexus Prime and it’s all good.

  • kristin

    The phone charger looks different but it does take a micro usb charger. My only thing, which no one has pointed out is the fact that the screen isn’t flush with the body but rather kind of raised…anyone know what’s up with that? Seems like an easy way to break your screen.

    Whats up with wifi calling???

  • Derrickps3

    i seen this phone in my local store, it is quite heavy,  but feels good in the hand

  • Nikki

    The phone will have wifi calling but in order to use it you will have to update your sim to the one that comes in the box.

  • W4fflesxboxlive

    Looks JUST like a sensation with a faster processor and different button placement/add on.

  • Guest

    Is the silver part of the phone plastic?

    • remixfa.

      its brushed aluminum.  It really just looks and feels like a more “high end” version of the sensation. The stores have the live demos already.  If you ask a rep nice enough he might let you see it. lol

  • Cortez

    Anybody worried that the amaze might have the death grip like the sensation (some of them)???? I went through 3 sensations, all had the dg, loved the phone but worried:(

  • Mike

    What kind of script is TMONEWS using? Every time I click on a link, it sends my hard drive to grinding for 2 minutes… only to load a few photos. I can go to more image & flash intensive sites & my computer loads quickly. Do something

    • None

      I have the same problem.  It is disqus loading.

  • AmberElizabethj

    So would anyone choose THIS or the sensation. I’m do for an upgrade and want to choose wisely. soo…… WHICH phone is better all around?

    *Sorry, *Due not do. [wow my spelling smh]

    The amaze and sensation are the same but the amaze has way better picture quality
