Well guys the HTC Rhyme has been revealed and the glowing notification charm and radio alarm clock dock have got me. Whats not to love about this baby?

Yeah I know what you are thinking "another week another htc handset" but wait, how can you NOT like this bad boy?

The lovely metallic purple finishes off a lovely looking product. Anyone else just cancelled their iPhone 5 plans?

Innovative handsets like these may just pose a big issue for iPhone. Have you thought of this?

Um...only a 3.7" screen, 4 GB internal memory, 5 MP camera, no removable battery, single core chip. Why the heck would anyone choose this over a SGS2 if you were going Android?

The phone is clearly designed for women, charms and other glamourous accessories that are gimmicky and no decent specs. :L not me! Um hoping apple will be innovative though. :apple:

Specs are not everything. But purple notification bubble doesn't do it for me. :) I'd rather have a faster phone with a larger screen and more internal storage - much more useful features.

Not interesting in the least. Sorry. Love me some iOS stableness.

Also, what're you talking about? Notification charm and a dock? Nothing new to anything.

Nothing new or amazing about this phone.

Carry on.

Nope, I'm here to discuss the iPhone. If I cared about HTC I'd be in Howard Forums or some non-iPhone specific forum.

Part of the iPhone discussion is always feature sets of the competition. The OP post is valid in my opinion. I just don't agree with him.

Innovative how, because it's purple? Even the Engaget reviewer, a woman, wasn't too impressed with it.

That purple charm has won me over. Screw the iPhone 5. I want that purple charm!

He didn't really compare, he just threw out the new phone and asked if it would cancel your iPhone 5 plans. Not valid IMHO.

Well I'm interested in reading and comparing other phones, and yes it has a few cool features but not the ones I am most interested in. Thanks OP though yea cancelling an iphone 5 purchase not likely, for the SG SII more likely.

What surprises me though is the impression I get that some of you change phones every 3-6 months? I am not upgrading to the iphone 5, I got my iphone 4 in January, even if it has significantly better specs. Well as I am on contract it would cost me nearly as much as buying one outright anyway. :p

I think some people have an addiction. They need a 12 step program.

Sometimes it just boggles me that people can get trolled this easily.
