MobileSec, 23 Apr 2013When you are buying a phone, the most important thing is real user experience and rating. HTC ... more575 $ is only US version with the frequencies used in USA:
LTE: 700/850/AWS/1900 MHz (US).
You will not able to use 4G LTE on this US version phone in other parts of the world because of different frequencies. Thats why its more higher price in other countries like 480 GBP in UK.

HTC One is the best phone for 2013. No phone can beat this phone this year. All users saying the best phone that they had is HTC One and camera experience is superb.
HTC ONE is 5 Star rated phone and it’s the best phone you can buy right now. Users are really satisfied with this phone and most of users say this is the best phone they ever had.
HTC One hardly hitting USA with good price ($574.99). It’s really good, I can buy a rich looking very nice phone for this price. This time HTC turning to right way :)

I've checked this phone today and it's a horrible device (my advice and I don't care what others think).
it looks nice only on press pictures.
It's so horrible in reality, not easy to hold.
Bye bye HTC..I've spent good time with the one S ..but this time my money will go for Samsung.

Unbiased User, 25 Feb 2013@S3 User
you are just obsessed with what you have... if you are comparing S3 with HTC One the... moreFriend, chill. I'm hearing all the fuzz about "design" but I for once am not going with my phone to a show. I am going to work and do every day tasks with it and as I may agree that HTC One is a very beautiful device, this aluminum cover will look like my grandmothers cutting board in less than a week. Now the crowd will jump, "You can get a cover..." but why would I, if i got the phone for the design ... how can i show it under a silicone or a plastic cover. A very simple thing to consider when piking design over usability. I currently have an SII and feel no need to change it. It's more than adequate for my daily usage (except battery) and probably wont get a new phone for the foreseeable future, but... even if i consider switching will get an S4 or S5. Why?, you'll all cry out? Well let's think about it... Main features:
- Display honestly if i switch the phone, i'm getting bigger for the smallest size possible. S4 Beats the 4.7 screen of one. And if some one starts talking about pixel density or vibrant colors, I'm gonna ask all, how much pixels do you see when switching a song or browsing the net in the public transport for instance? Pretty much same... Why, cause you won't see it under a microscope or spy glass :) Look, use, put away.
- Aluminum premium design: Well let's be honest... I've got my S2 for 2 years now and the first year and a half was without a case. It has a very slight wear over the back but otherwise is completely scratch free and i've dropped it a few times on walls, asphalt and what not. I've had it with keys in pocket and also quite a lot of abuse. No problems. The iphone 5 or iPad Mini premium designs that are similar to the One's, is complete crap for me. I work with phones on a daily basis and see what happens with a completely new device after only a week or two use. Rushing out somewhere to get a cover cause it dents easily, scratches even more easily and wears like hell.
- Front facing speakers: Those will come useful, in the library, or university, or middle of the day work, or home before sleep, or public transport.... Soooo speakers? Who uses those today, except to hear it's phone ringing in pocket or bag?
- HTC Sense: The first to go from the phone will be the Sense or Touch Wiz. Both are limited and there are far better options in the Play Store.
- Camera: Here I admit, personally don't care about it and don't use it in a phone. Why the hell i would, when the trusty DSLR is always around.
As this is getting long and i've got work to do, I'm gonna stop here. But my point is. The HTC One doesn't have any true advantages over any competitor around, Sony or Samsung. It's just pretty, but pretty is for show and I and most people want for use and abuse :).
What will make the S4 (Exynos Octa) my preferable device if i ever have any soon: Display, Size, Performance and Durability.
- Bigger is bigger. For the same phone size, its not bad.
- Lighter and smaller than the S3 and the One which is kinda ok
- Best performance out there. Hands down. Also reviewer give it more battery life, which is the huge deal for me given it's abilities. (Sadly Motorola doesn't make better devices, their battery life is simply magical)
- Finally, if my S2 is any indication of what a plastic phone is capable of, aluminum... no thanks. Got a Pad Mini that caused me enough troubles (and hurt fingers) for it's design language.
So in the end... cheers. In the end chose what you need. I need performance over pretty and will get such if that time soon arises. If that is when the S4 is not top, i'll see what is out there.
The rest is all the same. Android is everywhere.

You for get how samsung updates its again re enroll them for stabilty coz they are always in hurry to capture the market not the design. This is where Samsung compltely FAILS. You better go for plastic if u wanna see more features of HTC which samsung not even dreamt abt it mail me at email@example.com
i,m using HTC since 3 years and not got any problems with Desire HD sensation and One x
HTC One with better looking and design than S4. It also provides more convenient camera functions...I will pick HTC one for sure...
Anonymous, 22 Apr 2013You are comparing a stereo speaker to a mono. The difference is going to be significant.Ok :)
my last comment, who is that useless fellow representing htc marking & pricing in India?
HTC one(16gb) 26000rs (appro),
HTC one plus(64gb) 29000rs,
Htc one(32) 34000rs,
first remove this fellow at lest you can save that money..
[deleted post]hi prabhakar, are u on facebook? ur review is nice n impressive. .htc1 launched in india n sales starts frm 28th
32gb is 42.9k
Designing a beautiful phone with good specifications does not meet success , I think HTC has to forget about the profits on HTC ONE(atleast in india) and think of making costs because s4 is about to debut in this week and definitely it will hit the stores with better marketing with a sensible price..
I think HTC ONE remains as ONE (alone)...
Let the company keep the all the phones in museum..
Am waiting from last one & half but no one has any idea when it is going to hit the stores..
Why we have to wait for such a long time??
IS htc brand better than sony/samsung/apple/nokia?
how many authorized service centers in india?
do you have sensible pricing?
atleast do you update the phone as Samsung does?
in 2011 i was stuck with sensation and sII, but finally went with SII..
i think my choice is right, SII got 4.1 and scheduled for 4.2 but what about sensation??
HTC sensation then sensation XE,
HTC one x then ONE X plus,
HTC one then ??
cant you decide before designing and manufacturing a product?
do you thing people are fools?
since you dont have'confidence in your products you are facing losses ..
i accept all the designs of Samsung are identical but latest shows a difference with latest software..
finally s4(4.1) will get at least another three updates
How many updates with htc one(4.1) will get????
I think its better to forget about HTC ONE, History shows that they are not successful in first attempt, by the time they release other companies will come up with better ideas..
I lost hope in HTC..
