HTC One UK launch delayed to March 29 - read the full textThe HTC One will be delayed in the UK from the previous projected March 15 until the end of the month - on March 29. The information comes from HTC itself, which contacted one of UK's retailer Clove that are offering the device on pre-order. An official spokesperson was reached by Android...

 

Sort by:

So it'll be late till 29th in UK, and then what's happening to US market?
Or otherwise this the tactics that HTC already planned it.
For example: if consumers this the products is limited, so they might thinking about pre-order first may get it first just like what happened with iPhone 5 just out of stock in 1 hour during the first pre-order.
But if it turn out to be true like the rumor said, so HTC's going to screw up with SGS IV& Sony Xperia Z waiting on the ring.

> In reply to ish-l92-sheet @ 2013-03-12 23:56 from NXyJ - click to read"For now, the list of Android phones worth buying is two items long: the Nexus 4 and the One. Personally, Id buy the One if I had to choose right now, but with the Galaxy S 4 coming in just a few days, I'm pretty lucky I don't have to choose right now."

Thats from verge and in video review they said its best android phone.

Five points for battery from verge was quite surprising while engadget review said this: "We got almost nine hours of battery life with constant use."

This is so disappointing! I thought this was going to be the beginning of the comeback from my other favourite phone maker! Learn from Sony and meet your own deadlines. Nobody suggested the release date but HTC itself........Get it right first time is a basic rule.

> In reply to sonex @ 2013-03-12 22:50 from ib9W - click to readHow is the Xperia Z over priced? I got mine from phones4u for £489.95 which is cheaper than iPhone 5 and cheaper than the S3 at launch, cheaper than the delayed HTC One...lol and certainly likely to be cheaper than the upcoming S4! So remind why it is over priced again?

I can gave them an idea. Replace the 4MP camera and with a conventional one. There will be no shortage and the clients will be satisfied.
I have an HTC One XL with 16GB and no SD card. I will never repeat this mistake.

I dont think people will bother abouy that.
Now Xperia Z/ZL is the best phone in 2013 despite they are extremely over price.

Verge just reviewed the phone and thinks that this is the best android phone out there. I can fully agree, Its so well designed phone.

I hope the leaked sgs4 pics arent real or samsung might be in big trouble.

Talk about handing your rivals an advantage, the Xperia Z sold out in many markets, France, Japan, Taiwan, Germany etc, Samsung about to announce its new product in less than 3 days and you delay the release of your marquee product......you could not make this up. Still gonna wait though and pair it with my Xperia Z which I am loving, a lot!
