Jake, 23 Mar 2013live with walkman , xperia play , and old walkman phone w5xx w9xx all come with dual speakerYeahh even old Nokia N95-N96 had this !
We do not want to settle with the plastic S4.
So "WE WAIT". Tonight~ We dine in HELL~!
good phone but shitty update on software. likewise delayed on releasing hoping u can recover ds with sammy and z.
Hope their stocks drop enough from this to teach them a lesson. They have been innovaters for years and years but since the one XL they haven't done anything even remotely new, innovative or interesting. This new flagship is essentially just a One XL with a better screen, cpu and camera... where are the new features? where is something unique?
The Xperia Z is IP 57 certified, the S4 has a host of new camera and software features that make it stand out from the crowd, the LG
s flagship (Optimus G Pro) is a phablet.
TL;DR The HTC One is the most disappointing device of the next gen, HTC are no longer innovating, they are the apple of android.
Pity it was delayed and HTC lost some kudos for that but still prefer this over the S4! Samsung looking more like Apple these days except for the low rent hardware...... Loving my Xperia Z, the perfect all rounder! ;-)
"HTC has seen unprecedented demand for and interest in the new HTC One, and the care taken to design and build it is evidenced in early reviews" Sounds like North Korean propaganda :D
Obviously judging by early reviews it's not scoring as well as they had surely hoped. Plain and simple, they screwed up logistics. Why lie? I like Sony's stance lately. They're just doing their thing and doing it good. I hope the Xperia Z severly outsells the HTC One, since it's an overall better device and the company's marketing is just good and ethical, shows respect to people. I used to like HTC but their latest faux pas situations make me develop dislike for that company. That said, I'll be getting the S4. If it wasn't there I'd get the Xperia Z.
INDROID, 22 Mar 2013even cheap chinese phones comes with dual speakers n that too before all other phones which u'... moreInnovation by htc for your kind information
HTC was responsible for the first color palm-sized personal computer, in 2000 created the first Microsoft pocket PC and wireless pocket PC two years later in 2002.
They were also the first to use a large 2.8 inch TFT touch-screen liquid crystal display.
In 2005 they created the first Microsoft 3G phone and the first Windows Mobile 5.0 platform phone. The first Microsoft Windows 5.0 smartphone was created by them in 2006.
They developed a Tri-band PDA with the first intuitive fingertip navigation touch screen technology in 2007.
HTC manufactured the first Google phone.
Also in 2007 HTC developed a mobile product with their trademarked technology “TouchFLO” this technology enables users to swipe their finger across the devices screen to get to the content that they are looking for
Htc was first to introduce a dedicated image chip for camera
Htc was first to introduce to simultaneously use of camera while recording
The first to intoduce the sense UI, even before Touch wiz
Htc introduced ZOE in htc one(m7)
Htc was the first to make full hd phone known as DNA Droid
And lot more....
Atleast they did not copy anything like samsung. Give some respect tough guy.
htc one : galaxy s4
means for every 1 htc one sold there will b 4 galaxy s4's sold
So, now we know the HTC one's coming to the UK
Next week. Think i'll say my money for something better.
HTC if you cannot release on time, don't annouce so earlier, later just break promise.
How great your phone are, to long delay will lost people interest. REMEMBER THIS!
Absolute illegal statement,,its NOT due to demand its due to component shortages why lie HTC it gets you nowhere..You aren't going anywhere but downhill fast.

I wanted to like this more than the S4. Most of the S4's new stuff is gimmicky, so I'm left with two high-end phones that both do a lot. The only diff - the hardware. I'm tired of low-rent hardware on my premium phone. Unfortunately, I'm not waiting indefinitely for a phone that will be trumped by a new flagship every 3 months & carry a new name. That's what HTC does. The One is also reporting a bad battery life. Too bad HTC can't just bring it all together.
