Hi. I have bought a HTC 802W and like to share my experience as user.
I have bought this phone in first week of February from Dubai by paying extra for extended one year warranty, till date I have not be able to use it for several reason.
1) User manual not available anywhere, no hard copy, CD or on net, you discover yourself what this phone can do.
2) The sim in SIM2 slot is getting blocked for no reasons, the dual sim function works sometimes if only the sims are of two different service provider, after one of two calls it also gets blocked.
3) The option of choosing the sim to use say " Preferred network " not a sim.
3) If internet data is activated on SIM1 slot, it automatically gets activated in SIM2 slot also.
4) function of forming groups of the contact is available, but to set different ring tone to different group is not possible.
5) The HTC Sync Manager is only about music, photos & movies and for contacts only backup & restore, function of updating or adding new contacts via this app is not available, this function is extremely user friendly in "S" phones.
6) The swiping function for dialing or msg is not available, here we have to tap each activity to operate.
I have been in conversation with HTC support since last 6 weeks, they have not been able to provide any solution, they have not responded to my last email since 3/12/2014, my msg reference is (14INCW09ENA000686)
A BIG MISTAKE BY ME FOR BUYING HTC DUAL SIM PHONE.

try one of those above, you can even send your files easier to your friends becouse you don't need to copy to your computer and back to another micro sd or a pen drive

The same goes for smartphones, you can use WiFi to transfer files between devices (as opposed to your bluetooth suggestion), or again, cloud storage. And yes, you can carry your phone's software with you within the phone or again, on cloud services, and why would you even need to? You don't NEED this software in order to access the phone at all... The ONLY reason why anyone would want or need a micro SD card slot is because they want or need extra storage space, that's it... Every scenario you suggested has other methods to achieve the same result, some of which are even easier, faster, and MUCH better than using a micro SD card.

Not by me or anyone and this is true in all the reviews of HTC phones, about non-expandable memory.
HTC One-Main disadvantage:
4MP camera has disappointing performance in good lighting conditions
Awkwardly-placed and uncomfortable power button
Sense UI still lacks connectivity toggles in notification area
Non user-replaceable battery
Poor video and audio codec support out of box
HTC One S-Main disadvantages:
Non-expandable memory, just a single internal storage option
No dedicated camera key
Battery not user replaceable
Camera interface makes framing videos pretty hard
Incapable of 3G video calls without a 3rd party app

Imagine a pc without a dvd/cd writer. You won't be able to take a personal copy of files rather than in the hard disk. The same goes with a cell phone without an msd slot. It doesn't matter how much internal memory your phone has, whether 64gb or whatever. If you want to keep a personal copy of files, or share some files with others the easiest way to do is transfer to SD Card than through Blue-tooth or anything. You also cannot carry your PC and phone's software everywhere you go. About the Drop box it is not always convenient and not personal at all. Don't say that iphone doesn't have SD slot and it is still a top seller. It would have been better if it had.

People complaining about samsung design and about the plastic thing. Well its easy to replace unlike the aluminium if dented its useless. Poor htc being humiliated in china. Now apple will start using plastics and a dual sim. Galaxy y for the win. :)

Imo htc are f!#@ing stupid

No SD = dead phone, info lost.
Phone contain many components, memory is just ONE.
So if ANYTHING will break, no way to recover ur data without SD card.
HTC one it total crap without SD :((
But this 802 ***** I WANT IT! SDSLOT! 2 SIM! REMOVABLE ACC! Not crappy international version for losers.

This is an overkill! Definitely a winner.. well if this was the international model. And a user-replaceable battery would have sealed the deal.

Controversy? When did it cause controversy? This is definitely not the first phone to not have expandable storage. HTC themselves have released quite a few phones without it, as have Apple, Sony LG etc.
And with 32gb or 64 gb is it really necessary? Not to me. Removable battery is only important to a minority of users, as evident from the huge sales of all the iphones. I myself rarely take out the battery. Except to change the simcard.

Most def samsung is the one manufacturer smart enough to remain to have the sd card & removable battery option available, however their boring design is wearing people up, no imagination, I'd seen so many good looking GS4 prototypes on the web & they come out with this garbage design? samsung should hire the amateur designers that posted their prototype on the web
