HTC’s newest flagship smartphone has finally been announced. I can safely say that this phone is a beast, and will most definitely be my next smartphone.
I’ve used HTC’s One X for quite a long time, and it has easily been my favourite smartphone I’ve used to date. And believe me, I’ve gone through a countless amount of smartphones over the years. So what does HTC do? They simply step up the game and make what I believe to be is a fusing of the most popular smartphones currently in the market while adding their own style and flair to their next flagship.
All the specs are in check. You have a gorgeous 4.7″, 1080p display that will be the best on the market when the device gets released in March. The processor utilized is a next-gen quad-core Snapdragon 600, which is no slouch. HTC is also claiming that their ‘UltraPixel’ camera will take unparalleled images, especially in low light situations (Nokia Lumia 920, anyone?). They’ve also included optical image stabilization, which promises clear images even to those with unsteady hands.
What I’m most excited about is the New Sense that HTC is shipping with the device. Alongside the Android Jelly Bean software, HTC will ‘skin’ their device with the latest version of Sense (5.0 to be exact). It’s a whole new take on the Sense skin, and I am really starting to love the clean lines and fresh interface of the GUI.
Sorry, Motorola RAZR HD LTE. It’s been a good run. HTC, release this phone already so you can take my monies. Thanks.

It’s an iPhone 4. But better. 10/10.
After months of speculating, rumours, and patience (and frustration!), the new iPhone has been unveiled. It’s called the iPhone 4S, and boy oh boy, is it ever underwhelming.
Think of when Apple announced the iPhone 3GS. It’s more of a refresh than a completely new phone. The specs have been improved greatly (dual core A5 processor, 8 megapixel camera, Siri voice recognition software, to name some), but not enough to fully justify selling your old iPhone 4 and getting the iPhone 4S. I mean, if you’ve waited this long for them to announce the iPhone 4S, chances are, you can wait another 6 months for them to announce the iPhone 5. I’m looking at you, iSheep.
Apple, thanks for another underwhelming announcement. And Tim Cook will never be like Steve Jobs. Never!!
P.S. I still think the iPhone 4 is the best smartphone released to date, so it comes natural for the iPhone 4S to overthrow its predecessor. I don’t hate the phone itself. I just think the hype wasn’t worth it. All you iSheep, you can go back to worshiping your new messiah, Tim Cook.
