I have the HTC one, with sprint. What a pos.. a app for Skype took 4 hours to download and install with 4g service. My friend downloaded the same app in 30 seconds.. why is this phone so slow.. I wil never buy another HTC. This is my second and last one. Top of the line? Not.
Rajesh, 08 Jul 2013HTC one is far better than galaxy s4. my HTC one is awesome........ I love it. Only that it's slower in benchmarks, it has a 20 percent shorter battery life, and its 4MP camera is abysmal, especially in daylight.
Firstly let me describe the look and feel of the phone, its perfect..The aluminium gives you the premium feeling which no other phone can deliver. The unibody construction does deliver what it promises without any gaps. The curved back allows you to hold the phone without slipping and it feels great int he hand. When you hold the phone first time, you realize how light it feels for a phone made from metal completely. A lot has been said about the build quality on the internet, but once you hold it you have to agree there is lot more that you cant really express.
The screen quality is great, it has great viewing angles and infact the highest ppi in the market now :) so this is the best mobile screen period. The sound quality from the boomsound speakers just add to the screen in helping you consume mobile content better. These are the loudest speakers ever on the phone (Loudest but still crystal clear). The HTC One has two speakers on the front (Yes the front of the phone), I wonder why no one has thought about this before but kudos to HTC for this. The HTC One phone along with its screen and the speakers takes your mobile viewing experience to a newer level. Just to add to this the power button doubles as an IR blaster, with HTC SenseTV software this can be used to control any TV and Set top box.
HTC One ships with a new version of Sense. Sense 5 has been built from scratch and it shows, no lags whatsoever in the app drawer or anywhere else. There are quite a number of new features namely Blinkfeed, Zoe, The new music player. Blinkfeed is htc's take on a news aggregator it stays on your home screen(you can move it to secondary home screen if its not your thing) So far i love it.. show me the news without opening any apps and seemed to consume less battery than most other news aggregators(Flipboard, pulse etc). Sense 5 allows you to have folders on your appdrawer which makes it quite easy to organise ur apps
The ultrapixel camera itself has a lot of useful features.The camera peforms quite well is daylight and night. Zoe is a great idea that has been implemented even better. Zoe allows you capture a capture upto 20 secs in a 3 sec period. just delete those photo bombers in the background, also adding a plethora of other features while editing like sequence shot(compiling an image from a sequence of images), Always Smile(edit a such that everyone is smiling), Object removal(get rid of those photo bombers) and a lot more. The 30 Sec video highlights make taking pictures more fun.
In terms of battery life, HTC One last me a day without worrying to look for an outlet to plug in. My typical day includes music(Bluetooth) while on the train to work, phone calls from around an hour(On Bluetooth) and so, lots of whatsapp, if that sounds like your typical day usage, and the ocassional browsing of my feed readers, xda, and also gaming here and there ;) You can be sure the HTC One will definately suffice your needs.
End of the day its a phone and whats more important than making that phone call and being able to hear what others say to us. HTC One has SenseVoice which allows for crystal clear phone call and the dual built in mics which adjust the call sound based on the noise around you.
Overall HTC One is a phone that looks great, feels great and works great!! what more could you want!!

Now i got lumia 920 no problem... moreHow bout the poor notifications, cannot disable the Auto Rotation, No file manager, apps shortage and crashing apps, can't add multiple contacts to group while sending sms and many more. Those problems in your Lumia 920.

Osamon, 09 Jul 2013Great phone merging stability of iPhone and flixibility of android.I've seen 5 customers turning back their HTC one already. Again, build quality and liability of One X and One are absolutely rubbish.

Anyone can stop blinkfeed to use Apex Launcher which is download from playstore by free
i use both s4 and htc one , in my opinion htc one is best. good screen very smooth ui and audio quality.while s4 had very good batery .the main disadvatage of s4 is dimmer screen compared to htc one. s3 s2 had very bright screen sadly say s4 had no bright
