I remember when I first got my HD2 and all the problems I had with it. Like how I had to return it "5" times and the problems were never fixed. I remember how hidden dragon and darnell chat and other finally helped me to learn the art of rooting my phone. Which eventually made my phone into something I enjoyed immensely. I bought the Amaze the first day it came out. I retired my HD2 that is rooted with Sensation XL Stock Sense 3.5. I thought surely that HTC and T-mobile had learned from the HD2 debacle and would release a phone that was well tested. And that any "updates" would be well tested. I guess I was wrong.
The first thing I missed on the Amaze was the ability to hang up the call by pressing a "button." No big deal...I got over that in a hurry.
The honeymoon was great. During those first few weeks I was without a bluetooth hands-free device because I lost my Plantronics headset. The headset I used with my HD2 worked like a charm. (With the headset on the HD2 I could go probably 30 feet away without dropping signal to the headset. AWESOME!!!) When I finally purchased my new Plantronics headset the reception was terrible. I thought it must be the headset. I got a Plantronics Voyager Pro and had the same problem. 2 bad headsets...I had my doubts. I soon realized how much I loved hands-free devices. But to get mine to work I have to have my phone right next to it. I might as well put the phone to my ear. Then I found the post on this forum describing the same problem. How discouraging I thought.
To further exacerbate this situation I now find out that the phone doesn't even utilize the "dual-core" processor as it was designed. It is using a single-core. Really? How disappointing.
Then I find out that HTC hasn't completely unlocked the phone for developers to fix the problems HTC has left us all with... Really? I expect so much more out of you HTC. I used to tell all my iphone friends how HTC smartphones were the bomb and that I like the ability to completely customize my HTC products.
The Amaze is my 4th different HTC smartphone. Time for a change? But thank you HTC for giving me the HD video capabilites that helped me video capture a guy cheating my son, getting me on the local news, and helping to stop people like him from taking advantage of other kids.
