Hello, please investigate the credibility of the source. They've just posted an update, at the end of their article saying "A representative informs us that this device is not in the plans of the company. Logically the prototype we saw was one of the devices being tested but will not be ever released. Our plans for photos, videos and benchmarks were unfortunately postponed." - It seems highly unlikely that such a prototype would emerge in a small peripheral market such as Greece. I don't know if it's common practice for HTC to distribute prototypes to their international distributors, so I may be wrong.

Only brainless nerds care about pure specs. Bigger screen is also kind of stupid - I did make the mistake of buying a 5.5" phone and now find it too big for daily use.

Give us a camera which lives up to the hype.

Give us something like the voice activation on the Moto X (just better).

Stick to stock Google, with optional HTC launcher.

Oh, and get rid of the overly "designed" curved back with tacky lines running through it. The general HTC One design is about the best for Android, but it fails because of that back. Simple is better.

More cores equals to more heat, less battery, and then final explosion. Same with Samsung Galaxy S4 octa shit. HTC just never listen to its customers.

The 4ultra-pixel camera is the deal breaker. Why can't you not push more on the pixels instead of an octa-core bruhaha. Don't you hear the clamor of your followers? Old dogs at HTC are hard to teach.

Couldn't care less about this.

They should have beefed up the screen to 5 or 5.2, ram to 4GB, camera is absolutely superb on the new 1020 nokia, they've got the right idea i think, 4MP camera not matter how you slice it with ultra pixel garbage, it's still a crap camera, should have made it at least an 8MP or UP.

Plus HTC are just following suit instead of innovating new tech as it's available. the 800 is now old hat and a new set of processors is becoming available, htc need to grab these new cpus and gpus now, or they'll always be playing catch up.

As good as the CPU and RAM,
The stubbornly 4MP camera is deal breaker for me.

I'll wait for next year flagship THEN..

Ostensibly HTC should have followed Apple by introducing 64 bit CPU its in the future of smartphone. As to how HTC decided to switch to Octa Core I don't know. And this Octa thing doesn't show much difference. S3 vs S4 believe me S3 is much better. Lately, we have told that the new iphone 5S is powerful than S4 with numerous cores. Please HTC consider 64bit CPU. nonetheless HTC for life no matter what
