It is just a game of thrones... remember the day that first Iphone released in I never heard about apple that well before that day (It was just a normal company that have a bad time with others like Microsoft), that day just change the game rules...Same with galaxy S2 no one advice me to buy S2 on that day and say that sensation is better; it is not that wow name after all on that time, but I did and it turn to be one of greatest device in history that change Samsung for whole.

With componet shortages the HTC one is a big flop :)
Non-removable battery and costing more than £500,
I wouldn't waste my money.

No expandable memory card and non-replaceable battery were two huge mistakes. Also no option pen feature like that on the Samsung Note 2 was another big mistake.

If HTC was smart they would come up with their own software that provides similar security to Blackberry for security on those applications downloaded by their users such as privacy for protecting their ends users from applications that require permissions to access all their personal info.

just going to say on behalf of all those rooting for htc after you buy a phone what is easier to change, the software or the hardware. when you are able to change the internals of your phone as you please come tell me about it because when it comes down to it htc has hardware thats the best out there with samsung showing its pitiful plastic face. htc can get nearly all those "special features" samsung has with som simple software updates. Samsung on the other hand will never be able to match for example the htc one speakers because that would require a full recall.

in short hardware>software to a degree and in this case htc has the better harware of the two.
