T-Mobile Posts Product Pages For HTC Amaze 4G And Galaxy S II Featuring Specs, Highlights And More

If you’re eager to soak in every last piece of information you can attain as we count down the days to the Samsung Galaxy S II, HTC Amaze 4G October 10th pre-order you should direct your attention to the recently posted product pages for both phones.

Other than a “notify me” link which you honestly don’t need since we all know when the pre-order goes live, there are a list of special features for each device along with a high-definition gallery of press images and a list of important specs. As a side note the spec list is a little incomplete but you can get a general idea of what each phone contains inside and what your hard earned cash will be buying.

Head on over to both links below and pick your favorite.

    The GSII does not have NFC listed, but Amaze does, per the TMo spec pages.

    • Junieruiz

      Yes it does Watch the video is shows of NFC It also has the same exact process AND RAM and one is 4.3 high resolution qhd screen the other one is a 4.5 super amoled plus do your research before you talk

      • http://profiles.google.com/ryanbmarx Ryan Marx

        The specifications pages on T-mobile.com, with the bulleted list of features, does not list Near Field Communications for the GSII. What I said was true. Try comprehending what you read, if you can.

        I brought it up because that info conflicted with previous reports. It wouldn’t be the first time a carrier disabled a feature on a device. Try thinking critically before looking like an idiot.

    • Minhaj Masud

      It’s not listed in the specs page but it is shown that the GSII has NFC in the hands-on video.

  • Chrisroberts7577

    I’m hoping this drops to $199 fast.  I thought they figured out that $199 was the magic number?

    • Action 6

      THE PRICE ON TMO’S EXISTING PHONES LIKE THE MYTOUCH 4G SLIDE and SENSATION hasn’t dropped for months, i expect the $279 at least till the end of this year

      • SB

        YES, THE PRICE FOR THE HTC SENSATION HAS DROPPED TO $499. THE ORIGINAL PRICE WAS $550 RETAIL. THE PRICE WILL COME DOWN EVEN MORE BEFORE THE YEAR ENDS.

    • claudia64

      I hear you re the G2x. Would sure be nice not to have the daily freezup that requires a battery pull, but when the G2x is working (95% of the time), it works fantastic – especially streaming Netflix. Still. If reviews are good, come November or December, when I can afford it, I might just pay full price for the GS II, but again I’ll be watching this and other forums. Don’t want to trade one problem for another. Not eligible for upgrade ’til 2013 and don’t know if I can wait that long for a better phone.

    Both phones haves NFC support and both phone has the same same exact process AND RAM and one is 4.3 high resolution qhd screen I love the way this phone is built htc is known for building very good quality phones this is the best 1 I’ve seen so far the 2 tone color is cool the only bad thing about sense it takes up too much room also it seems to slow the phone down trust me I know what I’m talking about from experience. the other one is a 4.5 super amoled plus for more vibrant colors nothin on the screen looks faded out watching movies and taking pictures look amazing on the super amoled plus screen HTC have a better built quality but nothing can beat the screen view on the galaxy 2 in the long run I just think the galaxy 2 is a much faster better looking phone I’m putting my money on the galaxy 2 :-)

    • Andresmn1126

      Im sorry but just because htc uses metal in their phones in doesnt mean they have a good build quality. Out of all the phone I’ve owned, my epic was the only one I didnt have to get replaced.
      Htc hero = dust under the glass
      Htc evo = grounding issues plus dust under the glass
      Htc G2 = loose hinge
      Sensation = Awful screen (refresh rate problem), loose battery cover plus dust under the screen. I’ve already gone through 6 of them and they all got dust under the glass eventually

        Seriously, wtf is up with dust under glass for htc phones. Its happened to me twice!

  • Rdfrancis516

    I find it amazing that people are still trusting of the Samsung/T-Mobile relationship. If you have to choose between these two phones, the choice should be obvious. Anyone that picks that SGSII is showing poor consumerism. 

    • claudia64

      That depends on what you’re looking for in a phone. There are four Android phones in my family: my husband’s Vibrant, daughters’ Motorola Defy and Cliq 2, and my G2x. The Vibrant was slow to get updated to 2.2, sure, but that hardly mattered to my husband who only cares that the phone works. Out of all of our phones, the Vibrant is the most reliable, with the Defy (believe or not) a close second. Also, while this is more important to me than it is to my husband, Netflix runs and looks better on the Vibrant. It all depends on what kind of consumer you are, and the majority of people I know couldn’t care less about the stuff most of us who read this column do. YMMV.

      • Tortionist

        I totally believe that the Defy was a close 2nd. I use a Defy right now and it is a nice little phone. It is seriously underrated. I rooted mine and flashed a ROM so it has Android 2.3.5 on it, then overclocked the processor to 1.2 Ghz and not only is it very fast and reliable, but it also has a 2 to 3 day battery life with scrolling and screen transitions   that are buttery smooth. No Motoblur for me. It runs just as well as most if not all high end smartphones.

    • Tortionist

      Or they know how to root phones, flash ROMs, and don’t really care about updates. Consumerism is not about never buying any phone made by a certain company again because of a screw up, otherwise LG would be a poor choice for consumers as well, yet LG has the Optimus T and other decent phones. The only possible exception is Kyocera. Their phones are all crap. Most companies end up screwing up once or twice. consumerism is about making sure you understand what kind of phone you’re getting and making sure you’re willing to deal with the known issues and not buying the phone if you’re not willing too, instead of just blindly rushing into buy the latest and greatest. I did my research and decided to leave the Sensation, Amaze, G2X, and SGSII alone. I’m opting for the Nexus Prime which will be money well spent. I won’t feel cheated. I’m not an early adopter either, which means problems with phones are usually worked out before I choose to buy it. I also check Cnet ratings and articles. Now that’s good consumerism.

      • Zifnab2k

        Smart move. Honestly anything with a skin ends up being trash. Even with a root there’s so much to account for that there tends to be way more bugs even with a custom rom over just getting a Vanilla Android phone. After messing with G2x (Its not really vanilla) and the Sensation, i’ll leave them all well alone until the Prime comes out. Of course now ive kept the Sensation too long and will have to buy it out of pocket.

    • http://www.facebook.com/DeadPlasmaCell Dan Garcia

      It’s a tough one really.. My wife had a Vibrant and she had nothing but issues with it and updating to Froyo (When it eventually happened) was a big pain in the ass..  She’s been using the HTC Sensation that T-mobile let us try out the last few months and she loves it.  We’re supposed to send the phone back soon and I told her she should look into the Amaze 4G, which should be even better than the Sensation.  I know you shouldn’t judge the whole company by one phone, but we had 2 different Vibrants and the issues with the phone and updating have just left a bad “taste” in our mouth toward other Samsung phones.

      I dunno the Sensation has been a nightmare for me. Endless reboots, screen doesnt turn off on the first, or 5th press (it just turns right back on immediately), and a whole slew of other things. I finally broke down and contacted support after 2 months, and they sent me an already opened guts of a phone (no back case). It was very clearly old as hell since it was covered in dust and had scratches all over it.

      Not really sure HTC is a sure shot these days.

    My question to everybody is which phone is quad core meaning which phone will be able to run on AT&T 4G network if the merger goes through.

    • Tortionist

      You mean quad band? Quad core has to do with the processor, while quad band has to do with the frequencies and whether or not AT&T uses any of them. The SGSII should be future proof for a little while, but that’s not even a sure thing.

    I don’t see anything in the specs about WiFi calling…did I miss it?

    • J-Hop2o6

      I don’t see a reason why tmo would leave it out on a high-end phone.. might just not be listed.

    My mind is set on gs2 but I love the look and design of the amaze. I would like to see an amaze vs gs2 before I make final decisions. Having choices is always good :)

  • Calvin

    How safe is rooting a phone? How much does it cost and is it easy? I only ask so when ice cream comes out, I won’t have to wait a year for the update.

    • can’t wait

      to answer your questions, on the vibant its safe,free and easy if you can follow easy tutorials.  In addition the galaxy s series are very hard to brick, I’m sure the 2nd series will be the same

        Thanks!

    Love the choices. Think I’ll stick with tmo. I wonder though how can they sell sensations when for $30 or $60 more ppl can buy these two?

    • jarjon76

      They’ll have no problem selling the Sensation, esp since it is cheaper than these two phones.

    • Ktracho316

      Well the sensation is only $98 at walmart people that buy directly from tmobile are pretty retarted.when same phone is 50% cheaper at a retail location. I got the samsung galaxy 2 already. From sprint though, i.can say the phone is sick nothing like I’ve used before. What’s lagging is the sprint network as here wichita, ks there is no 4G network coverage. Im thinking about returning the device since I still am in the time range. And get the sensation from tmobile. The only thing holding me is this phone considering it was only $150. (again at walmart, never buy straight.from.actualretail store they will rip you off.

      • claudia64

        Watch it there. When you buy from some third party resellers, you risk higher early termination fees. Also, if you’re grandfathered on a great plan, you aren’t always given the option to keep your plan. When I bought my G2x from Radio Shack I wasn’t given the option of keeping my 200 MB data plan – I was only offered 2 GB and up. I don’t really need that much data since I have WiFi at work and at home. It some situations, though, and with some retailers, you CAN save a lot of money, but make sure you read all the fine print.

    I’m getting the galaxy s 2! COCKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!

  • UnknownOne1993

    Hey coming from someone getting into android for the 1st time (might get one of these for my b-day a week after in store release) which of the 2 phones do you prefer? I’ve seen countless videos comparing the gsII and sensation video and image quality and personally (to me) I don’t see how the gsII is superior in terms of quality. I’m mostly aiming for a phone to deliever entertainment and an awesome camera as I want to try to get into more photography (not serious photography but good enough for everyday use without a separate camera). I know the amaze uses the same cam as the mytouch 4g slide but with the addition of qHD, the quality will look even more excellent to my eyes. When I saw video footage of the mytouch, it looked subpar to the gsII but the still images were on par. Screen quality wise the gsII wins hands down to what I can see. So now between the amaze and the gsII, which would you guys prefer?

    • Calvin

      I’m no techie but from what I’ve read, the samsung will give you darker blacks and more radiant colors. My vibrant’s screen is awesome, so I can’t wait to the g2′s screen. I’m so leaning towards the samsung but I’ll definitely compare the two when they come out. Good luck choosing, both seen to be great phones!

      • UnknownOne1993

        Thanks. For the camera aspect, the physical shutter and camcorder buttons on the amaze are tempting me, but from my experience with the iPod touch 4g, I’ll be able to suffice with an onscreen camera (though physical is easier). Glad there are a lot of choices but they are very hard to choose from.

      Go for the amaze…..your going to love camera is so much better, plus 4.3 inches is still a comfortable size for entertainment. The screen quality is no amoled but slcd is still good enough to see in direct sun light.

    • Blackcat3119

      The g2s has a very good camera as well. Engadget has pretty helpful reviews on both. Should help you decide.

  • Jaygqitalia

    So in the end, which one is better all around? I like sense more to be honest. Just seems cooler

  • FtKnoxTMO

    Well, I am glad that I don’t have to wait until Oct 26th as earlier rumor suggested, I do want to put my hand on a model of these in the store before laying out 279 or 299 for these and pray they send me a 50 dollar visa card.  Shame there will be no iPhone 5 in this hunt at T-Mobile, but those fanboys have to wait for two more days to score an iPhone 5 that is rumored to be in SHORT supply.

      Both will have NFC.

      • McFraggerson

        Both will also be capable of 42mb 4G!  Another cool thing is the TMO version of the Galaxy S II will have better specs than the other carriers (1.5Ghz vs. 1.2 or 1.3).

        • Soularmor316

          1.5ghz should beat it out, it in reality its a downgrade. The core clock isnt the big deal. The Exynos is a better chip with the Mali400 graphics. This is a kick in the face to those of us waiting for the SGS2 with its amazing specs. Thanks for letting us down againTMob.

    Seeing how they abandoned the vibrant, can i expect zero updates and gingerbread forever from samsung? Also should i wait for the samsung s II 4g since tmobile likes to release the same phone a few times?

    • Anonymous

      pretty much. samsung is crap when it comes to updates. we got froyo 6 months after the vibrant came out and nothing else. all of Htc phones that got released last year have already got their gingerbread updates. first gen galaxy s phones haven’t got one gingerbread update. the other carriers have got leaks but that is it. the vibrant, no leaks no support. I’m done with samsung plastic toy phones. expect this phone to get the same crap support. one update and then forgot about.

    • Anonymous

      That’s why I’ll skip the Galaxy S line after selling my Vibrant. I’m happy with my rooted HTC Sensation 4G running XE Beats audio ROMs and Sense 3.5 ROMs.

  • JMG

    Can’t believe these don’t have UMA calling.

    • UMA

      Maybe the timeframe to get these out was to quick to add Wi-Fi calling? Maybe the DT/AT&T master plan is to do away with Wi-fi calling? It’s probably the former because the new blackberry just announced has UMA.

    • Anonymous

      After it is rooted you can grab the apk and bang you will have UMA calling. The sky is the limit on the T-Mobile network.

  • JMG

    Which has the better screen?  Is it the AMOLED on the Samsung or the 540×960 on the HTC?

    • Tbyrne

      Really depends on you. Camp A will tell you Super AMOLED + has a more vibrant and colorful screen with pictures & videos that POP OUT at you. Camp B will tell you that qHD has more pixels, which it does, true 16:9 display and that pictures & text are more detailed. I am leaning toward Camp A because I’ve seen them both and for me, Super AMOLED + is like candy to my eyes.

  • Brighteyez_23

    HTC Amaze is a f#$%ing pain. It syncs without your consent, even hotmail does not have the option of not syncing with phone contacts. You cannot bcc, or group text someone,there is not an option for that. The phone does not give you any control, but takes over. The 205 page manual is a JOKE!!! Just try the search bat and type in any subject and you are guaranteed to get a reply word not found. It is utterly ridiculous. So what you can download a bunch of apps. As expensive as the phone is you cannot even perform the minimalist tasks. DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY. TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED AND FRUSTRATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!
