Currently still at android 4.2.2 on my HTC ONE. 4.3 update is available but i didn't update it yet because i've heard a lot of complaints about the update such as wifi auto connect issue, battery drains a lot faster etc. Need some reviews from you guys before I update it. Thank you in advance :)

Just a last thing.as u know the battery is not removable.so do u experience that the battery is good enough.?
Lyk after 6 to 8 months laptops battery starts to weaken.if its giving 3 hrs it reduced to 2.5..
So will here b same?
If yes then its quite a drawback as the battery is not replacable too.so what to do then?
N a person is buying this much expensive phone so he expects to use it at lest 1.5 to 2 years?
What u say?

hazemfive, 13 Dec 2013pls, which mobile to buy is it SONY Z1 or HTC ONE?
I know Z1 more battery, speed, camera.
bu... moreHTC One's stengths:
1) Design & build quality (to me, nicer than Z1's flat & square design)
2) Amazing screen with natural colours (much better than Z1 TFT screen)
3) Boom sound (so far no other smartphones can beat the 2 front stereo speakers)
4) UI (3S - Simple, Smooth & Stable. No lag at all even with only Snapdragon 600)
HTC One's weaknesses:
1) Average camera (Can't beat Z1's 20mp camera, especially when zoom in)
2) Average battery (Light users - More than 1 day, medium users - 1 day maybe, heavy users - Less than 1 day)
Consider the above & make your decision..
pls, which mobile to buy is it SONY Z1 or HTC ONE?
I know Z1 more battery, speed, camera.
but I like the quality and design of htc one, please advise
I used this phone since 3 months b4,it's amazing and best smartphone of 2013.No lag at all run smoothly..build quality,camera,boomsounds are good ..
Hi , had mine since September , cant get decent cases here yet . Really enjoy it , good battery if you dont play games or surf the net a lot. Dont drop it . the screen will break , min did , few service centers who can repair it due to the manufacturing process .Otherwise happy owner .
You are welcome..
If i used my HTC One for games.. playing 15-30 min non-stop, i will feel the heat.. But i think this is normal, especially the body was made of aluminium, we will feel more heat..
As far as i know, there is no way you can replace the battery by yourself.. unless you send it back to HTC service centre..
It will take 3 hrs + to charge my HTC One from less than 10% to 100% (without using it during charging).. And if you think yourself is a heavy user, i suggest that you choose HTC Butterfly S with 3200 mAh battery..
choon916, 11 Dec 2013On the camera, then fully cover the lens with your hand & look at the screen..
If the ... moreThank u sir..
Very informative. Another thing is there any overheating issue? N can the battery be replaced somehow?
Hey, I am an HTC One owner. For anyone who considers buying this phone, here are the cons:
1)Camera: although it is what so called Ultrapixel, but seriously 4 mega pixels aren't enough specially if you want to zoom through photos you capture.
2)Camera also: Ultrapixels were disigned by HTC to capture more light, therefore you can get better pictures in low light right? And the answer is no way because the HTC One was plagued by a purple tint camera issue that trashes your pictures right away. I already replaced my phone 4 times and the problem persists (it is definitely a hardware issue however).
3)Battery life: from light to medium use it will last you a full day with about 3-4 hours of screen time, but if you are a heavy user just like me then you will need to charge it at least twice a day.
3)Charging speed: This phone has a miserable charging speed. It takes about 3.5 hours to charge while in standby mode, and an additional hour while using it.
Plus don't think that you can buy a 2A charger or whatever, because it doesn't support Qualcomm quick charge so you won't be getting more than 1A charger.
4)Design (not build quality): you can notice that although the screen is 4.7 inches but the phone size is same in size of the galaxy s4 which packs a 5 inch screen (if not a bit taller) because of the wide bezels and stereo speakers, and awkwardly placed power button. It's just not comfortable for a one handed user like me (this is my opinion).
5)Speakers: I really appreciate the loud sound and the beats audio integration and the amazing sound quality which is the best on a phone, but the minimum volume (the first step above 0) is really loud specially if you wanna play games with a bit of sound. It's really annoying.
And here are the pros:
1)Build quality: no one can argue about the build quality of this phone, it's really a nice looking phone and of course it feels premium.
2)Speakers: the loudness of those speaker and the build quality won't disappoint you at all when showing of ;)
3)Smooth UI: compared to other UIs this is one of the smoothest UIs.
4)Screen: It is the sharpest display on the market now with a pixel density of 468, and the super LCD3 is gorgeous no over saturation (like the AMOLED) no washed out colors (like the TFT) it is pretty accurate and vibrant.
I'm not a fanboy of any corporation, I'm just telling what I like and dislike about this device.
rokib, 11 Dec 2013i need the same supportNo native 3g video call. Read my comments below. Thats all. Bye..
Anonymous, 11 Dec 2013how can i make 3g native video call on htc one...??? plzz help mei need the same support
Can i replace my aluminium housing of the phone because i have accidentally dropped the phone pretty hard in road and have some scratched in the back of the aluminium body.
Anonymous, 11 Dec 2013how can i make 3g native video call on htc one...??? plzz help meNo native 3g video call for this phone. You must install 3 party apps to make video call. I can suggest you few phone can do this function. Even Sony, Nokia, LG can not do this simple function. If you really need's native 3g video call as i am, few brands etc samsung, alcatel and lenovo phones(high end with front camera) will do for you. I know from first hand experienced, not by reading others posts or comments. Thats all. Bye..

Htc has the elegant and professional look.till now no issue other than low light pics nd some times disturbance earpiece while talks
Anonymous, 10 Dec 2013I want to buy htc one..just a bit worried about the battery life..does it last for a longer time..?Ya true
Low light pics r horrible
Rest all fine
htc one dual and single sim have good battery life...on mediocre use it will easily last two days...but some people say s4 due to just 300mah more has more battery life...they are wrong...its processoer is 4*200 mhz more...slightly bigger screen ...and if u put the eye scrolling and smartstay and all tgese shit apps...the phone wont last 6 hours...with the proximity sensor and frint camera continuosly on...the battery life becomes pathetic...
Pls help me friends.im waiting for ur reply.which csble i should want to buy?my tv is lg led 2010 model.hdmi or mhl?
this is my second Htc One as the first that i had i sold it to buy the "amazing " galaxy s4...
i so regreted this decission because at that time i have already swapped a s4 due to the bad experiences i encountered..still at that point i decided to give the s4 nother chance ,maybe i had a bad device...as it turned out my first experience and the observations that i made were corect again...this made me feel even worse because i sold my Htc One...
i never had any problems with Htc,no matter what model i bought and used from them and i pretty much can be considered a loyalist of this company...ever since i hold my first Htc Diamond until now,even though through the years i used a lot of Samsungs ,Apples and Nokias...
the only companies that i trust completely when buying a phone are Nokia and Htc..
i' ve read a lots of comments in here where people complain about a lot of things,from slow charging to camera problems and overheating....i never encountered any of this problems ..i consider this device to be the best Android device i have ever owned,and i owned a lot,and this is the only Android device WITHOUT LAG!!!no lag at all...comparing this to the s4 or any other sammy this is a supercar...everything i want to do,i do it with speed...no slowness,no problems at all..
battery life...well comparing this with the s4, from my experience,i must say that although it has a smaller battery it lasts longer...so for me this is a clear winner,no doubt...it easily beats the s4 in this regard
camera...a lot of people complain about the 4ULTRApixel camera with no reason...i also own right now a Nokia 808 and i can say that nothing is capable to beat this "monster",but still the Htc One's camera is one of the best camera's i used in a smartphone...it has great quality,both on stills and video...the images are great ,i made some really great pictures with this phone,and in night time photos it easily beats my Nokia 808 ...you really need to know your twchnology and fully understand it in order to use it properly,but i guess it's easier to complain and bash something if you don't know how to use it...
built quality....no1! the best phone on the market in this aspect! nothing comes close to this....i owned the ip5 and everybody praisses Apple for the build quality( i don't know why) and the Htc One is a clear winner also here...
sound...no1 again!exceptional!nothing like this exists on the market both on the speakers or the headphones...amazing quality...i always loved htc 's music reproduction in the headphones starting with the sensation xe ...
this is by far the smoothest,the fastest,the best experience on android that i ever had since ever so i can highly recommend this amazing phone to everyone out there who wants quality..and a piece of advice: when purchasing an Htc phone,always buy the ones that say Made in Taiwan..they are the ones that are really high quality and desrve your money not ones made in china...i know from experience that whatever is made in china you have about 50% chance to have some serious headakes...
