Anonymous, 24 Mar 2013you're right,people who says nokia's look cheap are blind. open the back cover of a nokia and ... moreFinally somebody who can appreciate the simple beauty of a phone. I'm not going to state that the Nokia N9 is (or ever was)the best phone,only that,as far as looks are concerned nothing even comes close.
Compare it to any Bang&Olufsen device,technically maybe not the best but aesthetically just plain gorgeous...
The one is a brilliant phone. Now that i have a tablet for most of my multimedia needs removable battery and SD slot are not a deal maker for me.
Allthough the touchwiz UI is ugly it still has features that a don't think i am willing to give up. This will be a very hard choice for me to replace my s2 because i love how the HTC one looks but s4 has a smaller body with a bigger screen, better camera and features like no other phone on the market..
Will prolly choose after my personal hands on!
Once again great review GSMarena :)
Nobody, 24 Mar 2013I'm so glad that there is so few people like you, who are buying phones for fashion .So I guess you buy your car without care toward the model and design... Car as well as smartphone today, reflects its owner personality...
What make HTC one impressive is the list of hardwares that set it apart from other competitors.No doubt,we see HTC making every endeavors to raise the bar in the smartphone race.For that reason,I personnally feel that it deserse to be given an applause regardless of whether it will catch up their sale with Sammy G4 or not.
I like how they design the UI. It is just how I want my android customize like how the task switcher shown. Design is beautiful and blinkfeed surely give me new experience because I use nexus s before and xperia now. But with camera only 4MP although it is ultra pixel but still if this come with the same price with xperia z than it is too expensive. Make it 8MP ultra pixel then it is worth it, but I consider they lower the price as 4 ultrapixel is enough for mobile photography

Samhyu, 24 Mar 2013Impossible to waste money to buy this kind of phone.Not money don't say

The speaker quality sound is not too bad. One can not possible put the speakers on top of the screen and when it was behind the screen many people complained.

I just saw this smartphone here in Taipei and got to play around with it. Great smartphone but they really messed it up for the locals by selling a 3G only model here in Taiwan. Imagine Apple shipping the iPhone 5 to Taiwan with a 3G only model. It is as if locals do not travel abroad these days.
[deleted post]Smartphone world today is changing fast! Just accept it. You cant blame manufacturer, just buy a new one or use ur old phone forever
Tom-Helge, 24 Mar 2013I'm not embarrassing myself, i'm just laughing over the things HTC One is missing. And i'm lau... moreYou just a blind man Tom, or you might work at Samsung ha ha ha! In fact, I am going to buy HTC One because it offers a powerful hardware, only a bit below SGS4, combined with beautiful and premium chasing and UI. If next year SGS5 can offer a great quality chasing with all lovely hardware and software like now, I will buy it surely.
Samsung trolls and fanboys leave this thread, don't like HTC one buy another phone. Stop talking BS.
Tom, the only matter of laugh here is you, so just stop trolling. I decided to go for HTC One only because of cheap feeling GS3 makes, that's a fact and you can cry about it all you want. I DON'T care about non removable battery (I never change batteries) and lack of sd card (32gb is ok for me). To make it easier for you, nobody says GS4 is a bad phone, but overall at this momment, One offers more. Next year I will maybe buy GS5 if I estimate it is the best choice for me and my needs at that momment, I am not fanboy of any brand and I don't have a problem with switching from one to another.
HTC team is running out of brains.........why not a simple 13 MP camera, why HTC has to risk it every time? they dont want to learn anything from Sammy. Blinkfeed is not going to make much of a difference. no SD card?????? worst of all its bigger than its rival. even though i will buy it :) i love the design.
The camera is great on this phone. As for those disadvantages can actually be advantages. Internal storage is way faster than SD card and it's lifespan is much, much longer as well. The sealed battery means the phone can have a unibody design and it helps a lot to not being able do remove the battery in case the phone is stolen. I can remote find it by GPS. How do you find your phone when somebody removes the battery from your phone?
