hTc is currently fixing this purple tint issue via hardware repair. You must call their customer care support line. They'll issue you a ticket but you're responsible for sending the phone in and they'll repair it if it's still under warranty. No software update will fix this (not jelly bean 4.3 or even Kitkat 4.4). You can also have it exchanged through your carrier if it's still under warranty but there's no way of guaranteeing that your replacement won't have same issue.
1 thing is preventing me from buying it , the camera :( it's so sad that to see a weak camera with all these strong specifications :/ I don't believe in ultra pexile my htc one s 8mp has a better photo than htc One - neverminf if they made anther mobile with 8 ultra pixle from it I will be the first one who will buy it :D
Compare the application drawer screen shots of Sense 4 User Interface of htc one x plus and one x in the links below with the same in htc one's Sense 5 User Interface and see why Sense 4 is neat and the best looking UI not only than Sense 5 but also than any other user interface on any other phone.
Hey guys don't worry abt battery coz its li-po 2300mah. Li-po gives higher backup than li-ion and backup increases after some cycles. I've experienced this coz my Sony Ericsson has li-po 1460mah battery. My phone is two yr old n battery is not weakening.
Hi just tap with finger anywhere else on screen and af lock is disable

As far as call clarity goes that depends on to many variables, but again, iPhones, and Nokia have great call clarity. Not to sure about Samsung or Sony, they probably do also at this level of smartphone.
Ray , 14 Dec 2013Guys I just wanted to buy a Phone with good camera quality and call clarity, quite important t... moreOK on this page, look at the first link under the phones picture, it'll give you a good idea of where the top phones are camera wise. The HTC one has a good camera, but there are problems with a pinkish haze under low light conditions. The Note 3 has a 13 mp camera, takes great pics. The Nokia Lumia 1020 has a 40mp camera, but holding the phone feels weird because of the unusual camera make-up. The Sony Xperia Z1 has a 20mp camera, also the Z1 is pretty durable. Also the iPhones, they have a 8mp camera, but don't be fooled by that, they take great pics, and opening the camera and taking fast shots will never have any lag issues. Some phone have lags when opening the camera, but not the 6 mentioned in the link on the side bar. The Nexus 5 apparently had camera issues when Kitkat was loaded onto it, although that may be sorted now. Hope this helps, :).
HTC one main camera has a dangerous purple tint problem under low light condition. What should I do any suggestions? My Android version is 4.2.2 should I roll back into 4.1 version to avoid this problem.
Guys I just wanted to buy a Phone with good camera quality and call clarity, quite important tool for my work. some say sony Phones cam better, Please suggest i got to buy a phone with good cam and im totally confused.
HTC desire 700 dual sim has the best design of all the latest htc phones including htc one. In desire 700 dual sim the screen is placed equadistantly from the top and bottom bezels so it comes exactly in the center of the phone when it is held in landscape position and the usb/charging port is placed in the center on the bottom.
i have problem with camera. there is option AE anf AF lock. but no option for unlock. if some one knowing how to unlock plase let me know.

Totally agreed with you..

Can't really answer your question by now bcoz i used my HTC One only for 3 months since Sept..
Theoretically, battery will become weak after using for quite some time.. but i think that will happen only after few years & not few months.. By that time, maybe you are already thinking to upgrade your phone to another HTC newer model..
Anyway, in order to prolong the battery life, you may turn off the phone at night when you sleep and not using it.. just my opinion..
Battery life will be very much affected by the way you use it..
hazemfive, 13 Dec 2013pls, which mobile to buy is it SONY Z1 or HTC ONE? I know Z1 more battery, speed, camera. bu... moreI have been a user of HTC ONE for 5 months and never regret a single second. This phone is really fast and the physical appearance is a beaut! The specifications are really really great. You have to really try it to know the awesomeness of the dual front Beats audio speakers! The battery has been great for me(I'm a moderate user, mostly using it on facebook, twitter, instagram, surf the internet and play some games. All of these mostly can last for a day for me. 100% at 8am and get back home at 5pm with 40%, ps:with mobile data on all time) Because of the full metal aluminium body so it does get hot when you play games like after 15minutes. But works just fine other time. The HTC Zoe feature is great and the camera works properly under normal condition. However there's problem regarding it's camera. Some users including me experience a purple tint problem under low light condition. Well that doesn't affect me much because i seldom take photos outdoor at night. Overall i would rate it 9/10. One star deducted for the camera. Sorry for the bad english and hope it helps!
Currently still at android 4.2.2 on my HTC ONE. 4.3 update is available but i didn't update it yet because i've heard a lot of complaints about the update such as wifi auto connect issue, battery drains a lot faster etc. Need some reviews from you guys before I update it. Thank you in advance :)

Just a last thing.as u know the battery is not removable.so do u experience that the battery is good enough.?
Lyk after 6 to 8 months laptops battery starts to weaken.if its giving 3 hrs it reduced to 2.5..
So will here b same?
If yes then its quite a drawback as the battery is not replacable too.so what to do then?
N a person is buying this much expensive phone so he expects to use it at lest 1.5 to 2 years?
What u say?
