    Any way you could just give actual resolutions in the tables rather than these acronyms? I had to google qHD, because for a short moment there I thought it could actually mean Quad-HD. Seems to mean quarter-HD instead.

    I just don't think there is a single person in the world for whom qHD is a more relevant information than 960x540. Some people may know the acronyms by heart, but those people will surely not be confused by seeing the actual numbers. And everybody else is saved a trip to Wikipedia.

    qHD has been around for so long I didn't think anyone didn't know what it meant, but yes, 960x540 is indeed right, as in one Quarter HD. I usually always try to put the numbers beside the acronyms, just didn't this one time.

    Agree with you 100%. No reason to wright exams every time reading an article. There are so many devices and hardware out there that even many people who do follow technology, like me, can't remember everything. And really, WHY remember everything? Reply

    Yeah. I was wondering about that, including a searh engine trip also for WVGA. As usual, I was thinking that all these resolution acronyms are silly and worthless. Why would anyone want to memorize 50 acronyms for saving a few characters. At least I know what VGA is (though I think it should actually mean 320x200 :)). Reply

    With Nexus 4 with much better hardware spec. and the recent lowered price, I think these new HTC phones have a tough battle ahead of them. Reply

    Ultra pointless low specs.

    Seriously, once you get to specs this bad, you honestly should just head to ebay and buy a chinese phone with a cheesy quad core cortex A5, several batteries, and so on, for less. You'll get a higher res screen and a more recent version of Android to boot..

    You are not going to find articles for cheap noname Chinese devices in Anandtech, so why bother reading the article and commenting?
    Anyway, I do agree that you can buy good and powerful Chinese phones at half the prices but their are people who feel better putting a known brand phone 2 centimeters from their brains than a no name one, no matter how better specs or/and lower price it have.

    Wow that blue One. Just. Wow.

    My opinion of a piece of hardware has never been shaped by aesthetics before but their marketing team can pat themselves on the back for this one.

    loved the blue One too. the black details match with the screen, and with this blue it looks like it came from some years in the future.

    but if it comes with Maps 7.x, not even this great looks will make me buy one.

    It's terribly confusing that "Snapdragon 400" has both Krait 200 and Krait 300 parts. How large a drop is there in both IPC and overall performance? Do the 15% / 20-30% figures (respectively) still hold? Reply
