We've had the HTC Amaze4G in house for two weeks now, and T-Mobile's latest uber-phone is top notch. It's a large phone, somehow larger than the HTC Sensation 4G, though both have a 4.3" display. The Amaze has a dual core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU just like T-Mobile's version of the Samung Galaxy S II. It's got an excellent 8 megapixel camera with a backside illuminated sensor and f/2.2 lens for better low light shots. There's also HDR and burst mode.

This is a very elegant and stylish phone. It's available in white as well as black, and we have the white in house. HTC's signature gentle curves, LCD glass integration and excellent ergonomics are here, just as they were in the Sensation 4G. What does the Amaze 4G bring to the tablet vs. the Sensation 4G? It has a faster CPU, HSPA+ 42Mbps 4G just like the Galaxy S II on T-Mobile, a higher capacity battery and a much better camera. NFC is on board as well, though there's currently nothing you can do with it.
