The Amaze 4G is a great phone. It’s build is great, the specs are solid in it and the camera will be a great point and shoot replacement.

High speed data, fast dual-core processing and a high quality camera
The display looks great, the hardware and build quality are excellent
The Amaze 4G is well-named. It knocks almost every feature out of the park. Save for the crummy voice call quality and average battery life, it is superior than most of its stablemates on T-Mobile's retail shelves.
The display looks great, the hardware and build quality are excellent and look good, the calling and messaging features are the equal to any other Android phone, and there are plenty of options for social networking.
While the music- and video-consumption tools are excellent, the camera and video camera really set the bar for what smartphone cameras ought to... Full review
The perfect phone for shutterbugs, but perhaps not for those looking for the absolute latest bleeding-edge smartphone
I like the HTC Amaze 4G because it's a little different from the sea of "me too" smartphones competing among each other to be the fastest, the thinnest, the one with the largest screen.
It's a capable device, but the only real feature that sets it apart is the superior camera. It's the perfect phone for shutterbugs, but perhaps not for those looking for the absolute latest bleeding-edge smartphone. Its marginal performance making voice calls is a bit of a disappointment.
If you're more interested in taking photos of your daily adventures and sharing them with your frie... Full review
Using the HTC Amaze has been like a breath of fresh air
Using the HTC Amaze has been like a breath of fresh air. It’s not often we have an emotional connection with a smartphone, but that is exactly what happened here. From its dual-toned aluminum design to its ample heft to its stunning screen we were left impressed time and time again. Like the Incredible S, we feel like the Amaze is a culmination of many months of R&D and lessons learned from some mediocre product offerings. This is the device the Sensation should have been, and though we’re pleased it’s finally here it is only because we haven’t played with the Ga... Full review
Great design, solid build, super fast data and processor, gorgeous display and HTC's best camera to date
Expensive but extremely fast with an amazing camera
Amazing build quality, premium materials, nicely performing camera, speedy CPU and network connectivity
Stands among the best Android devices out there
The upgraded hardware is nice, but the Amaze doesn’t set itself apart from the Sensation 4G all that much. The processer is better, it has more RAM, more internal memory and can theoretically download faster, but at the end of the day these are all just incremental upgrades. With the Sensation 4G only being released in May we’re really not sure why T-Mobile felt the need to pick up the Amaze 4G. It is certainly a better device , but it doesn’t necessary fix the flaws or bring anything really different to the table. If you’re in the market for a new T-Mobile d... Full review
A better moniker for this girthy handset would've been the Kind of Awesome 4G
As a daily driver, the Amaze's bound to leave you high and dry a few short hours into your day, critically hampering your busy work / social schedule with its power-hungry demands. Sure, you can obsessively monitor your screen's brightness, manage syncing and hold off on the mobile video consumption until you're close by to an outlet, but the name of this industry game is wireless, and T-Mo's Galaxy S II's already out of the gate. Ignore this phone's battery life shortcomings, and you're left with an elegant camera module and T-Mobile's just out of reach 42Mbps HSPA+ dangling carrot... Full review
A nice camera in a big phone
If you’re an avid photographer, however, and you don’t want to lug around a point and shoot, this phone will definitely do the trick. Whereas previous Android iterations depended on gimmicks (the 3D phone, the huge screen phone), this one excels at picture taking in a way that will impress friends and family. This isn’t a camera for “in a pinch” situations. This is a standalone camera replacement.
Is the Amaze 4G worth the $249 price tag? Potentially, although I’d be hard-pressed to recommend it as a “phone” and not as a cameraph... Full review
I recommend this phone unlocked, it is still affordable unlocked.
This phone is good for someone who is looking for a good reliable phone. I would suggest buying it unlocked. I got it for $299 at Mobilicity. I have a 35 dollar/month plan with unlimited internet. Positive -The phone looks great! (multiple homepages is a plus) -It has flash for watching videos -I can use most full websites (this is a major plus because I have unlimited internet) -Compatible with Opera Mobile -Auto rotate for a bigger keyboard -User friendly -Google Application on the Front Home page -Love the ability to create folders on the hope page -Email synchronization -I have dropped this phone several times (I do have screen and a case protector with no damage) -I can use the book reader if I need to read a book -Google Play is pretty good -the phone is small enough to fit into pockets, not bulky. Cons -Phone is a little heavy -Front facing Camera is poor quality -Auto rotate has a slight time delay -Does not work very well with Slacker Radio Application (but not too many phones do) -The battery life is only about one day! (especially with a heavy online user like myself)Less
