    But with a screen resolution greater than 480x800.

    To take 3D pictures and preview them on its 3D screen.

    But the screen should have more resolution than the current ones for web browsing.

    I've had an HTC EVO 3D since launch, 540 x 960, solid phone.

    Yes, I had seen that Phone, but it is old now.

    I never cared about HTC as they were just a Windows phone box-shifter.
    Maybe they make good Android phones now, but I don't see them in the same category as the traditional manufacturers (which can make worse phones).

    HTC is a very good company. My Dad uses an HTC Phone and I had an Aria that I loved. They make great phones

    I don't know. Many phones look plasticky.

    I guess its all personal taste. I like plastic. It is a better shock absorber. To each his own

    I am not talking about using plastic, but about the shape.

    I also don't know anything about HTC research, while Nokia was known for a lot of innovative stuff.

    And the brand name is bland, not provoking attachment.

    HTC is very innovative. Kickstand, uni-body design, etc.

    They're definitely up there as one of, if not "the premium" top notch android oem's.

    The problem is that, that it just feels OEM.

    Curious what this means? How can something feel "original equipment manufacturer"?

    The company feels like just an OEM.

    Maybe we're missing something? :confused:

    What part of Original in Original equipment manufacturer don't you get? Are you talking about aftermarket?
    You get a car, the radio it came with is from the manufacturer is OEM, you switch it for a Sony you bought and that's aftermarket.

    They have many with metal/aluminum casing too. And you said that phone was old now but it has a better resolution than what you requested in your OP.

    Strange. OEM is generic equipment. If you want a new battery for your iPhone do you want an OEM battery from apple or an aftermarket battery from some other company? Its not tangible.

    You want a phone that is built from all different parts from all different companies?

    Or you feel the phones are bland?

    OP is this the sort of stuff which usually rattles around in your head before you purchase everything?

    By the way, I don't like HTC but their phones are probably the least "plasticy" of all Android phones... they use a lot of metal in their designs.

    "Just OEM" like "we don't make full products by ourselves, we always get the software from somewhere else and put it onto our hardware".

    I really can't see the point of this thread. You want an 3D phone, but you refuse to accept products from HTC (and or maybe LG since they also had some 3D phones?) because they are "OEM"? By your definition, every Android manufacturer is an "OEM" since they are just getting the software from Google and then slapping their own custom UI on top of it (like Sense, Touchwiz, Optimus UI, Motoblur etc etc.) and tweaking the Linux kernel to work on their own hardware.

    I said "just OEM". Sony for example, might be an Android OEM, but they make a lot of other products fully by themselves.

    Not really, but if that is your reason why you wont buy a HTC, thats lame. LG makes other products too.

    HTC phones are actually pretty good. I just dont like that there is no microsdcard expansion slot.

    I don't think the OP knows what he's talking about/or wants.

    Maybe it's best you just go with the iPhone. Something makes me believe that android might be too complex for you.

    I know LG fully makes a lot of other stuff. But their 3D phones have low resolution screens.

    Also, the HTC phone is not a step up enough in resolution.

    And phones without a memory slot are totally lame, including the iPhone.
