Please help me out here...
Personally I like both GS4 and HTC one, after reading all the reviews about these two, I am really confused, like GS4 has heating problem and plastic back, Htc one has battery problem etc. I dont care about radio or sd slot. What I need is fast and solid phone so that it wont break easilly.
So plz tell me which one I should pick???????
1- In this phone we can not zoom IN a photo which is downloaded by any source like we can do in other phones and we just can zoom a photo when we turn ON "Magnification gestures" but then we have to tap for tree tym on screen or if we typing any msg and we put backspace continuously , the screen goes zoom IN
just a rubbish and irritating this is .
2- When we watch a vdo , there should be a option like SAMSUNG provide while vdo is playing which is you can just click and rotate the screen at that time only which will not apply on whole system but, in this phone, you first need to go to setting and then turn on "auto rotate"
huh , very very silly things they missed in this
i hope they will update it .
wahby , 27 Aug 2013Pls who can give details about the camera quality of this phone?, experienced users pls!What I can say about the camera is it's a perfect camera, it's not the best but perfect enough for the high quality day to day photography and fastest shutter speed is much needed for take a immediate shot.
I have experience with the high-end phones like HTC One, S4, Xperia Z and Lumia 925. Among them only the HTC One takes the most natural and realistic pictures. Some times the photos taken from S4, Lumia 925 and Xperia Z doesn't look natural (over saturated). And another advantage of the HTC One is its low lights performance, but it's not much great as Lumia 925. The low light and indoor photos taken from the S4 is horrible. The Wide Angle lens of the HTC One perfect for the landscape photography and you can take a group shot even 10 persons, perfectly fit for the frame. The innovative features are fantastic and very useful, however the S4 has the most features in the HTC One. When comes to the video recording I feel the HTC One is the best for the video recording but Lumia is good in better video stability.
When we talk about drawbacks, lack of zooming of the photos. The pictures taken from the HTC One are lower resolutions (it's not effects the quality of the photos only for the zooming) than many phones in the market. Therefore we can't zoom much in a computer which a photo taken from the HTC One. It's start to blur beyond 3x zoom. The day light photos of the HTC One is arguable. Some are saying they are good and some are complaining they are bad. However what I feel most people evaluate it by looking at the picture colours. HTC One takes more natural photos almost same like looking at your eyes. While S4 and Lumia 925 takes saturated and much vibrant colours. However the new 4.2.2 has increased the vibrant of the photos.
Finally my conclusion is the HTC One camera is a perfect camera don't misleading for the internet articles. But I acknowledge since it has some problems. The every phone you takes has it's own disadvantages. What I feel here is, the new UltraPixel concept of the HTC is a good idea, HTC should keep improve that technology. I hope next time the HTC will design a phone with a 8up camera.

The last time I put my phone on the charger was Friday night and now it's sunday night. wow. it's a first time having two days unchargered with HTC One. Normally I get one and half day. I'm waiting for HTC Butterfly S here in south africa. HTC for life no matter what
@what.a.long.story - It does have a 32/64gb versions. Same as the iPhone and some other non-expandable memory gadgets. If you were after hundreds and hundreds of apps, I don't even know what to suggest. Hehe.
AnonD-173003, 25 Aug 2013No card slot. Well, I am not a phone expert and I wonder: is this meaning I can never own, say... moreI'm using 32gb version of the HTC One. There is 6gb allocated for the apps storage and 25gb for the phone memory (for storing music, videos, photos and etc). You can't increase the apps storage space or phone memory spaces. It's already store around 5gb data in the apps storage when you buying the phone; that's for the Android system and 1gb space available for the install downloading apps.
I already installed 19 apps in the apps storage, they took only 238mb. That's mean you can install around 80 apps in the 1gb apps storage. You know that no-one in the world will install 80 apps in the phone. However if your apps storage get full, no need to worry you can install the apps into the phone memory; in addition you can store your data in a usb storage either, if the whole 32gb memory got full. I'm using the 32gb version, although if you afraid that the 32gb memory space is not sufficient, there is 64gb version available either.
My final advice is if you well aware of what should and shouldn't to store in the phone you can manage the phone storage effectively.
No card slot. Well, I am not a phone expert and I wonder: is this meaning I can never own, say, 50 or 100 apps at the same time? Or I can transfer apps to an USB memory (or an external HDD, or whatever memory device) and move those back to my phone when I want later?
