    Yes, I'm still a HTC, especially HTC Manilla man at heart...

    You are right, the phone gets hot and it runs terribly, really, really terribly. Street view is unusable. You would think that a Google app on Android is more optimized. It soaked like 5 % of the battery in 5 minutes...


    If it's unusable than screen is the problem here. S5 went very hot but it worked alright, until it got so hot that you couldn't hold it :D.

    Only Street View didn't work, the rest was fine. It loaded the panorama images (although slowly), but I couldn't move around in them. It always turned a little to the side and a little up until there was the sky. Nothing else worked, and it was extremely sluggish while doing so.

    Very, very bad experience.

    Screen uses too much GPU power. Snapdragon 805 would save the problem.

    There is probably none. The second guy seems to like how it looks.

    Same here, I think ATT is just messing with me and wants my last 4 hrs of work today to go in slow motion.

    It's 5.5" phone (at the same size as the 5" M8) and the screen is just incredibly sharp and clear. Maybe you'd be surprised :P

    I know I would ^.^ but its just not needed anymore 1080p is fine but QHD is getting into the territory of unnecessary IMHO :/

    Apparently there's some issue where I'd you're running 8.1 preview it doesn't show up, but if you're on 8 then it shows up quickly.

    I just gave up after half an hour of waiting. The main thing I want with cyan is the camera improvements but I don't take pictures very often so it's not too big of an annoyance to me.

    You remember when all new Android phones were released with 1080p and all Windows Phone users said: "Nobody needs that on a phone, it's ridiculous, it might be good on a TV, but never on a phone!"

    When Microsoft, as always very late, started to support 1080p, nobody was complaining, and now Windows Phone users laugh about iPhones with a lower resolution.

    As a reviewer wrote: As long as the newest very demanding 3D games run fine without any lags, it's probably not the screen.

    I'm glad I told my brother not to update his 925 to the developer preview.

    I never said they shouldn't support it. here's the thing QHD doesn't make sense on a 5.5 in phone because its a phone im not going to notice the difference between 1080 and QHD unless I get a super ultra magnifying glass and look the individual pixels . on computers and TV makes sense because its looks clearer and better on bigger TVs and monitors.

    Yeah, I understand your argument. I'm only saying that people brought the same argument when the first 1080p screens were released, and now it's standard and nobody wants to go back.

    Also, most reviewers say even though they only notice the difference in a direct comparison, the screen's sharpness is still amazing. And that's good enough for me, a screen I'm amazed of every time I turn it on.

    I can't install Jetpack Joyride on my phone.

    It demands: Device & app history, Identiy, Location, Wi-Fi connection information, Device Id & Call Information.

    What the hell do they need that for?! That's crazy. With that they can practically see everything I do with my phone, have all my data and know where I am. I want Windows Phone back ;-)

    I understand that there is a difference between 720 and 1080 and its pretty awesome but the difference between 1080 and 1440 is the beginning of unnecessary resolution on a phone but if they starting putting UHD ( 3840x2160) Ill call it unnecessary

    if its as good as you say then that's good :D.

    You don't see the point I'm making. But that's fine. And I will hold back on a remark about your attachment to your believes no matter what argument comes along.
