please make it to 4.7 is enough....HTC ONE i like u
without doubt, the BEST phone i have EVER used, i had the SGS2, then the SGS3, but was left totally disappointed with the cheap, plastic build quality (my physical home key squeaked whenever it was pressed) so decided to opt for this phone.
Best decision i made, the screen is amazing, crystal clear display with the most responsive touchscreen on any phone, i have ever used, the sound quality is by far, head and shoulders above any other phone on the market at the moment. the phone is super fast, and i have had no issues with it at all ...... and finally, the build quality is AMAZING, it feels and looks AWESOME

Anonymous, 06 Jun 2013Well then wear a complete hazmat suit when using the S$ and petition for water cooling on the ... morewhy anybody go so far to use a phone, it means that that the crappy phone that r suggesting ie s4 need to used only in the conuntry like greenland or antartica where the climate is so cold and it seems that a samy fan is given all the reason not but samy phones
this also proves that in heating problem s4 is the worst
I used to think that we were in an era when all smartphones with big screens looked more or less the same. Because if you're honest, what can be changed in the front of the device, if 90 to 95% of its surface is just touch screen? Oh dear, I was so wrong. HTC One is a true masterpiece of art. However, this review will also show some weak points of the newest HTC premium device. Yes there are some shortcomings, but we are not living in an ideal world so you won't ever find a perfect product: it doesn't matter if it's just a smartphone, a computer or even a car. People have different tastes or expectations and this won't ever change. But HTC One can surely satisfy more people then any other device before.
HTC put in a lot of effort to make this device look amazing - efforts which have been a great success. However, design was never a weak point of HTC devices. As far back as I remember, HTC devices were always one step ahead of the competition when it came to the design and form innovation. So for me, it is not a surprise that HTC One sets a new standard of build quality and design.
Is there room for some improvements? Yes, I think there is. First of all, the design of the hardware buttons is not really comfortable. Having the power button on the top of such big device is not the best solution. Also, the power button itself is too small and it doesn't protrude enough from the surface, so it's quite hard sometimes to press it. Maybe it's because of the IR sensor built into the button that they were stuck with this design. I believe that having a power button located on the right hand side of the device (like on Nexus devices) and volume buttons on the left hand side would be a much better solution.
Secondly, the build of the front speaker grilles. These tiny holes can get clogged very easily. I can't think of an alternate solution at the moment; I guess it's just the downside of having a smartphone with amazing sound capabilities, known as HTC BoomSound™.
The last biggest design flaw I found are capacitive buttons. There are just 2 buttons - home and back button. It is already confirmed that under the HTC logo there is a touch sensor as well, and with the new "logo2menu" feature available in most custom kernels for HTC One it is possible to assign the HTC logo as a menu button. I think that the trend to have fewer buttons on smartphones comes from Apple - but iOS is a completely different operating system with a much simpler UI, and it's quite impossible to make the Android user experience that simple. Having just 2 capacitive buttons brings some negative consequences, for instance there is significant confusion about different "long-press" and "double-tap" combinations. For example, to activate the menu function you need to long press the Home button. To display "Recent Applications" you need to quickly tap twice on the Home button.
There is a lot of marketing effort behind the HTC One, but this time it's one of those rare occasions where advertising doesn't lie. The HTC One is a premium product, with unique and completely amazing design. If you're looking for a smartphone that will gain people attention on the street, the HTC One fits perfectly.

Note 2 is crap now. Get HTC one / Asus Padfone / Samsung S4
This is the best phone available in the market,simply outstanding i played with it in HTC store and it's simply superb,stands class apart from the boring designs of Samsungs and Iphones.Planning to buy it,but my current phone One-V is being very loyal to me.
I am never going to buy any phone which don't have speakers in front.
I want to buy this phone because I know this is one of the best.But I am hesitant because of the following reason.I am in Kuwait and there is no service center for HTC in Kuwait.(They had one which was closed about 6 months ago)Since the battery is not removable, if I get a problem with battery or if I have some other technical problem, I think it will be very difficult to get any service here in Kuwait.Can anybody please advise me?
Anonymous, 03 Jun 2013if you take a pic why you need to zoom it. each and every pic get blurey when it is zoomed. if... moreWell then wear a complete hazmat suit when using the S$ and petition for water cooling on the Note 3 and S5.
AnonD-77852, 04 Jun 2013The One has the best camera aside of Lumias phones. But then again WP is utterly useless and u... moreYes, it blows the 4MP camera out of the water, especially in daylight, and especially with regard to DETAIL LEVELS, that everyone seems to disregard these days.
nick, 04 Jun 2013htc one is best. Its camera quality is great.i have took many pictures and all are of best qui... moreWake up, 4 ultrapixels means 4 pixels which are larger, while 4 megapixels means 4 million pixels. The page for this phone states it has a 4MP camera with 2 micrometer pixels. The "ultra" part refers to the individual pixel.
Not that the camera is any good. In daylight, when we humans are most likely to be active, it is demolished by most other 8MP, 12MP, 13MP, 16MP and 41MP cameras out there.
AnonD-153000, 06 Jun 2013Coming from the iPhone 4s, should I get the HTC One or get the Note 2?Note 2 if you have cargo pants, HTC One if you dont, but for real its all in the side, One is far more practical and will still kill the note for media with its better audio
The HTC One is easily one of the best phones I've ever had and the best phone HTC has ever made. Coming from a long line of Windows Mobile devices by HTC I'm constantly impressed by how HTC Sense has evolved from its beginnings from just a launch screen. Sense now includes things like BlinkFeed which puts news and social media items you care about up front. As an owner of the HTC Windows Phone 8X, also a great device, I'm still getting used to the Android OS. It is helpful that the battery life is excellent compared to the 8X even in light of the gorgeous and bright HD screen and the fact that I usually have both the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radios on. With the exception of devices that can have bulky extended batteries attached I have never seen battery life this good. The battery isn't removable so this is very important to me as I don't have the ability to keep spares to swap out. All in all, this phone is an excellent device all around and a really great first experience with Android devices. Making the transition could not have been made easier with any other device.
