    I wouldn't be using my phone to watch, in particular, SD, movies and sport - so plasma would not be favourable. Also considering the bars/stats/infos which could be permanently shown, which could lead to IR and IBI. Also battery life would suffer considering plasma's higher power usage.

    I would much rather take IPS LCD over plasma for the purpose of a cell phone and other 'monitoring' purposes.

    But it seems I need to accept that I am finding users with strange habits such as above! Which includes accepting sub-par cameras on their R8,000 smart phones? Look at the Slash pics for yourself.

    I am not going to dismiss that this is the best phone HTC has ever brought out, because one person on this forum is not happy with the camera. I have taken 200 photos with my Desire in 2 years, so this is not a showstopper for me.

    Well the vids are out there on YouTube for you to see for yourself that it's not only one person on this forum.

    Great phone but would have expected more camera qualitay.

    hmmm ... I have a Desire HD and loving it to bits still ... but just not happy with HTC and the after
    sales service or rather the promises they make with extended online functionality which is why I
    started looking at the Galaxy S3 and to be honest some of the features are better on the S3.

    just cant get away from the fact that I'd much rather use sense than touchwiz but thats just
    about the only drawback for the S3 that I can think of for now.

    Sense is MILES ahead of the Cartoony TouchWiz, but the option to put another launcher on is always there.

    This gets interesting when you can put Sense 4.0 on the Galaxy SIII. If only.

    From the engadget review :

    Now let's talk about image quality. We pitted the One X against the current cream of the crop -- the N8, Amaze 4G, iPhone 4S and Galaxy Note (which uses the same module as the Galaxy S II) plus Canon's S95 compact point-and-shoot. The camera landed somewhere in the middle of this star-studded pack, marginally beating the Galaxy Note and iPhone 4S while almost matching the Amaze 4G. Sure, it's not in the same league as the N8 (which rivals the S95 in some cases), but this is one stellar camera, especially when you consider that HTC is not positioning this phone as an imaging-centric device like the Amaze 4G.
    That doesnt sound like the camera is ****ty.

    Well, your first and last one does bother me at the least as I am on the road for work most of the time and will have a car charger, and I have two Choix mobile chargers as well... On the second thing you mentioned, on my previous upgrade I took the HTC Desire, and I can honestly say this is the first time that I have gone the entire period between upgrades without losing the phone for some or other reason!

    This Desire has been through water 4 times, including swimming pools and toilets (don't ask...), and has fallen quite hard more than just a couple of times, and it is still running. So I am happy with HTC overall

    I'm also a little concerned about the battery being non-removable and the lack of microSD card. How are we going to load custom ROMs I can't count how many times I've needed to do a hard reboot by removing the battery. Sounds like there will be a solution by partitioning the SD card though, not sure I'm happy with that. I like that with my Sensation (and previously Desire and Touch Pro 2), I could change the ROM without touching the data on the SD card.

    Yeah, removing the battery has also helped for a frozen phone a few times on my Desire... but I am sure / hope that ICS would have these problems fixed by now

    Most electronics have a "kill switch" method to force shut it down. Usually holding the power button for 30 seconds works. (PS Vita, Nokia N8, Nokia N9, Optimus Black)

    I've also had to flip my Desires battery out regularly but apparently the One X can indeed be rebooted with the power button as you mentioned..
