Every aspect of the htc one is amazing. BUT there are some camera footage posted in Yputube recently which shows that camera sensor and tech IS REALLY BAD. SO I'LL BE WAITING FOR THE GALAXY S4.

What i like about this phone is the F2.0 Lens Camera. Thats it. Everything else is just pure B.S. this should be sold cheap for me to consider buying it =)

If World No.1 Samsung is worst, then HTC probably nothing to non-existing.

HTC One are just a clone/copycat iPhone5. The funniest part was you've choosed not to admit that. What a shame. HTC by far the worst quality smartphone maker, worst then Huawei, Meizu, Xiaomi and ZTE.

People with great creativities go for Samsung, then Apple. That's also the reason why HTC are now at rocks bottom market share among smartphone makers. Even Nokia are doing better than HTC last year.

"The HTC One features a full metal zero gap unibody. The body frame is made out of
aluminum and inside the casing HTC has
crammed all the different bits and pieces of
technology. It feels rock solid and great to the
touch - the smartphone is generally build like
something that came out of a JEWERLY rather
than a smartphone factory.." :D

Surely this makes the Blackberry Z10 look
amateur haha..

I hope it has the battery that a HTC needs. Usually its the big weakness, but we shall see.
Personally I don't like the "Windows" tile look that the new Sense UI seems to be going for but at least it isn't as obnoxiously bright and should be easily modified to suit.
Stereo speakers on the front looks like a big plus.
Also not going for the ridiculous "I've got the highest pixel count but lowest intelligence" nonsense is a good sign they aren't just following the loudest voices.

The game of "MegaPixel" is over now, its going to be a revolution with "UltraPixel". HTC has labeled this as 'UltraPixels' and it is capable of capturing 313% more light than smaller pixeled sensors.HTC explained that the UltraPixel sensor allows it to double the size of photos taken on the 8-megapixel sensor.

Samsung hardly considers htc as a threat. Their real challenge has always been apple. Since the galaxy s series and the iphone's are pretty much in their own unique league.(arch-rivals)
Now that there are some stellar devices as sxz, ,htc one & lg op pro, expectations on Samsung to deliver the sgs4 has entered a new level.

Lovely looking phone and great specs except HTC are still NOT listening to their customers. NO Removable memory & NO removable Battery.

Htc one has 1080p screen, optical image stabilizator, like lukia 920 does, hdr video on both cameras, slow motion, hdr microphone, ultrapixel camera, 32/64 Gigs, and the probably will offer extra storage on Dropbox, highest ever ppi468, dual speakers...

it just makes the device more expensive.

if it's cheaper than xz, that's the thing i'm buying.
