Facebook is a satanic marketing tool.
May it rest in peace soon.
Bad luck with the first good luck with the one.

HTC are the camera kings.

Nokia cancelled showing their pureview for the laggy WP for the MWC2013 after seeing what HTC can do with the ONE.


HTC is the best and niche market is what the fans wanted all along

Not a mass plastic soap bar human shaped product sales company.

HTC build for them.

Facebook had this design before as they were working on this for years.

HTC is the best. WP is the laggy old OS that people are told they don't like at all. Android and facebooking is the best OS+Hardware mix of high tech quadcores for true lag free "like" thumb upping.

Actually Nokia copied HTC's digital clock Home screen interface
in some of their symbian phones.

Actually most of the people come to GSMA knows mobile phonse industry quite well and usually attracted to top specs. But in the real world facebook is integrating into people's lives. Everyone has FB account and some folks can't even live without FB. Plus android FB app is not well developed IMHO, thus this phone might sell pretty well.

But the phone has 5" FHD display, and to get most out of this phone one has to leave 3g or wi-fi always on. So 2000mah battery is huge draw back.

As for me I of course will not buy this, and most of the guys commenting here will not too.
