HTC One launch delay confirmed, camera and unibody to blame - read the full textHTC was on the rise until 2012 when the company’s fortunes took a turn for the worse. The company is trying to recapture lost ground with products like the HTC One – a risky, but unique Android phone – but it hasn’t been smooth sailing. The One was supposed to launch in March (that was what...

i feel so sorry for HTC. This is the best htc phone ive seen but due to this delay HTC ONE will be very late.You should just opted for the SONY EXMOR RS sensors just like almost all manufacturers did.

Why do HTC even bother selling this phone? They should just cancel this project instead. What a shame after calling Sammy Galaxy S4 "TheNextBigFlop" LoL!

what wrong with you all...

as I remember Iphone 5 have a heat problem with A6 processor and get delayed until they released Iphone 4S and make fool of who buy it telling them that this is the next generation of mobile...and it work without a problem.

now all of you are shouting and mocking HTC for delay there product one month...It is normal for a company to do that...

Moreover what is the idea of releasing their mobile one month before s4...all of you that choose s4 will wait for s4 and who like htc one will select is only one month befor after all taken into account that you are not a kid

on the other hand HTC one is mush better than S4

-it has a really unique design all of aluminium not same like last generation

-a great screen better and more colorful than S4

-a very good idea for a camera, the good shoot is not all about pixel( 1MB could be better than 16MB) you can check slr camera for that.

-fast enough CPU(why you need a faster CPU it is just a mobile) more what is the new thing in octa processor it is same like last generation processor but with a better battery control, there will never be 8 cores running at same time, max 4 core. moreover no application is ready for that even a lot of benchmark application is not yet ready for use of 4 cores...

-what is the nice thing with all of eye detection feature:
* smart stay :- can found in s3 more can download from market.
* smart pause:- it will be release as application in the market more LG also have it.
* smart scroll:- this is just a stupid idea; who of you can control his eye all of the time...didn't you think who a bad feature could it turn to be if a page start to scroll without meaning of that.

I have galaxy s2,s3 and never will choose s4 I will go for HTC one

In most cases every manufacturer has had issues with the initial launch of most of their phones after they released them! for example, Iphone 5 had a camera flash fault but didn't catch this before release, Sony Xperia T had WIFI connection issues but didn't catch this before release & Nokia Lumia 800 had charge and WIFI connection faults had issues with but didn't catch this before release. This is a joke considering they make a tonne of money on faulty phones and i know they always accept send backs and repair them for free but not every person does this and the manufacturers get away with it!!!
HTC have spotted and issue and are resolving this before release! This is a sign of quality a reassurance!

htc, why not merge with sony? show sony what good displays are supposed to be. i really don't understand sony's decision of using the kind of displays they are using. just awfully washed out looking. i have no problems with viewing angles. however, i certainly have issues with poor contrasts and the gimmicky bravia engine that only works on certain areas.

why can't sony just implement bravia through and through?

i think s4 and xperia z will win the game because of marketing. sony and samsung phones are available almost every country.

By the time HTC One will be available everywhere it will be outdated device like happening with Nexus4..
Comeon big players think wisely before making products..
What if your device is out of world but still you dont have available to interested buyers.. Think wisely..
Look at samsung they dont face such issues because they take Wise business decisions..

If a cheap plastic can give the utility of an aluminium then it's sane 2 go for the plastic and insane to go for aluminium. its my personal opinion any. it does have to be right but it has to be respected unconditionally.

And when it launches the price would be ridiculous. So it doesn't matter anyway.

What's wrong HTC? Can't deliver the Premium build phone you're bragging about?
