I was excited to see the first HTC Smartphone with Beats by Dr. Dre thinking that it would be awesome. But upon reading the specifications of it on GSM Arena, I’m a bit disappointed with it as it lacks the power and speed to compete with the competition’s flagship devices.


The phone is known as the “Runnymede”, here’s the specifications:

•    4.7-inch, 800x480 display
•    1.5GHz single-core Qualcomm MSM8255
•    768MB RAM, 16GB internal storage
•    8 megapixel rear camera with LED flash, backlit sensor
•    720p video recording at 60fps
•    1.3 megapixel front camera
•    DLNA
•    Less than 10mm thick
•    Android 2.3.4, Sense 3.5
•    Bundled Beats by Dr. Dre headphones

Another thing that I don’t like with the specs is the 4.7” display. 4.3” is enough, like most of their flagship models, but anything larger than that is already a tablet. I was also expecting it to be a dual core device and have a larger RAM. I guess it is targeted for teens and audiophiles that would not care less if it is a dual core or not. The Runnymede is expected to be released on December this year.
