Had this phone for about 3 years now, mostly using it as a .flac music player and staying away from invasive apps and all that crap. It's starting to show signs of age (bit slow at times), and I reckon it'd be quite slow if I was leaving tons of apps open all the time. But screen still impeccable, aluminium still looking awesome and feeling great (leather protective casing). I will miss it if I can't find an equivalent when I'll have to change, but for now, I'm totally satisfied.
lilpeanut, 28 Jan 2017did u here yourself? htc e9 is old school Very nice set HTC his camera and speed awesome
stay away. at first was a good phone. now the battery doesnt last 2 hours. the phone gets so hot it will burn your hand. the only uh oh you get is the uh oh you shouldnt have believed they would stand behhind thier word
This was an amazing phone till it went into bootloader mode.Than I found out how shit this phone really was.cant find the flash Roms online.Very difficult to fix.Never buying HTC again.
Phone looks good but if there is an issue with starting the phone, just dump it. There is no way to open the outer cover and look at the battery. Can't reset.
The HTC One is a great phone to use. The camera has purple tint issue, but other than that, it is great!
Anonymous, 23 Mar 2017Incredible phone, using it from 4 years now. Best phone ever (except camera issues). Thinking ... moreIs every htc one m7 have camera issue or only starting kits have this issue?
Another phone with a terrible camera.
In daylight it's quite good, but as soon as the light drops, the sensor gives up and produces a very noisy, green and purple mess, as though the sensor signal has corrupted. Absolutely unusable images are the result. If you do get the phone for use as a phone, ditch the HTC software and get the Google play edition, or Cyanogen, or my favourite, resurrection remix.
Best phone what I ever have.
I just succesfully replased the battery and now that is like a new phone.
Best phone I have ever bought. Still running without ANY issue. No crashes, no freezing and camera still doing great pictures without too much hassle. Only thing that started to wear out is the battery, which is to be expected. Still, holding charge for 2-3 days if not used much, or for half day to one day if used a bit more (excluding games which would make the battery go out fast in couple hours, luckily I don't play games at all). Great phone!
Been using Android since 2011. My first Android was the Nexus One. But it is this 2013 One that helped me fall in love with Android. That's why I bought it a second time around. Just love the design.
Would NOT really use it much though. Too laggy and battery life is pretty awful. Just a memento phone. It still looks great next to my silver S7 edge and doesn't show smudges and dirt like the S7e does on the back.
My first love with Android started with the HTC One. The One To Rule Them All...
Best phone i have ever bought,👌After 4 years of use the only problem i've got with this phone is the camera.
Everything about the phone is excellent........Except for the camera. My phone has the now famous purple tint issue which HTC seem to be denying ever existed. My phone is out of warranty. HTC refuse to repair the phone outside of warranty. My opinion is that its a manufacturing defect which has affected the phone from new. Therefore the camera was never fit for purpose.This isn't a warranty issue, its a consumer rights issue. The shabby customer service over the camera issue has put me right off HTC....Never again....!
Anonymous, 23 Mar 2017Incredible phone, using it from 4 years now. Best phone ever (except camera issues). Thinking ... moreI wouldn't go far to say best phone ever. More like best design ever although some dislike the many wasted bezels around the screen. I got my 2nd One last night which was exactly 4 years after it got released.
Using it now for some DoorDash and GPS voice navigation. The sound is surprisingly soft with the navigation and it lags badly when using CM Browser app. My M7 and S7e are two of the prettiest phones ever but also the laggiest that I currently own. Looks fade. Performance matters.
Missing my Pixel and G5 right now. Pixel is just fluid UI. G5 is better to type on because slightly bigger display where you won't accidentally touch the home button below the keyboard space bar as often like on the Pixel.
Will use the Pixel/G5 tomorrow as they are a better duo with the best fluid experience. The prettiest duo of the glacial silver M7 and platinum S7e stutters too much. The lag just ruins the experience for me. Pretty paperweights.
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2017I know somebody who had this phone. It is very stable, he used it 3 years without a case and d... moreIncredible phone, using it from 4 years now. Best phone ever (except camera issues). Thinking on changing it know but it works perfectly.
I actually got a second model of this phone last night for $60 used. It is in very good condition with maybe some tiny nicks on the bezels from the plastic case it came with. I sold my M7 two years ago and just missed the design and audio.
Honestly, this M7 is just a memento. It is my 9th phone currently and my 3rd phone I got within 4 days. I didn't remember it being kinda laggy. TV remote app won't work. HTC browser app crashes.The touch response was smooth when I got it in 2013 but doesn't feel as smooth as my current daily drivers from 2016. Still has the purple photos. Still charges very slow with more time charging and less SOT.
So stuff I hated about it is still there. But I missed it for its design and audio. I remember back in 2013, it took me a long time to adjust to its size. Maybe a year since coming from iPhone 4 and Nexus One. I hold it last night and it feels so easy to hold. I prefer the M7's size and design but would rather have the performance of the M8.
M7 still a great phone by HTC achieving many accolades for them. Overrated by reviewers like the S7 edge was last year but probably HTC's best design ever. I do prefer its design over the M8, M9, Xperia Z3, and Galaxy S6/S7 edges. Close to smartphone design perfection for me using metal. This second one is on 4.4.3 with TMo with no carrier logo on the rear while my first one was stuck on 4.1.2 and AT&T.
But would I use it as a daily driver now? Oh, hell no! Goes back using the often maligned and UGLY G5 and Pixel for smooth performance, longer battery life, fast charging, great cameras, and rarely gets warm. I would only use this M7 as a third wheel since my Sprint G5 which is unlocked for both international and domestic can't get data with TMo like my TMo S7e and Verizon Pixel.
A third or fourth wheel phone with good audio capabilities and nothing more.
In my honest opinion, this was the most ground breaking phone ever made and I feel so sorry that it can not keep up anymore in every day use because I loved it while I owned it. Apart from the buggy camera on some models, everything else this phone had to offer was absolutely amazing.
However, this phone is still good enough for people that use it as a regular phone and some browsing. Games and more demanding media on the other side cannot be pulled off anymore.
