not a very clever design, here's why;

- no home button - v frustrating
- power button on top - what were they thinking?
- annoying blink feed - gluck getting rid of it
- chip magnet/easily breakable unless using a v strong case
- below avg battery life, shud learn from motorola

I would buy I9505 but here this model is not available, only I9500. Costs Rs.70000 ($736) with VAT. Qualcomm version is better than Exynos.

I own HTC One and I see no good reason to buy a stock android HTC which doesn't have the blinkfeed, camera software, the other sense nice animations. Worst of all it won't be updated regularly. HTC One with sense is best. don't know why people appreciate blinkfeed. It's a wonderful. I like tennis, games and gadgets so I opted for these news and I read them all the time.

Maybe with its next OS update that you'll never get because it wont be supported by Google they'll add a Flux Capacitor to its already over fluffed spec list so one can travel back in time and buy a real Nexus you wont have to flash a crappy half broken port to.. Yes REALLY McFLY..Doc Brown just texted you..

However, a lot of people hates the UI, maybe it is just peoiple with low-end HTC phones or other jealous people using other makes.

C-mon people these are not NEXUS phones they are Google Edition phones!! True NEXUS devices use virtual on screen keys GN/N4/N7/N10 and dont need crazy specs like these over priced fluffed up wannabe vanilla turds!!

Stock UI on Samsung S4 is okay :-) but not on HTC one... HTC has one of the best UI for android. Samsung UI sucks...by the way Samsung Phone sucks... Third class Samsung produces only Third class phones...Since few manufacturers not aiming at producing android phones.. Samsung is playing in market... Not for long time Samsung!
