1) HTC falsely claim it is Full Metal Body. Worse still, color peeled off.
2) Why pull S3 S4 into the scene? Did Samsung say the word "Full Metal Body" in their marketing campaign or ads? No. HTC did.

Member from the forum doubt the same as you. HTC fan trust everything HTC tell them. They strongly believe it is 100% Full Metal Body as HTC advertised.
In order to proof that he recorded the video with the testing tool and his friends help. This was before HTC support reply and proof him right.
Your button still new. After sometimes we will see. Don't accidentally knock, scratch or fall. The ugly white plastic will shine :)

First batches suffered some faults yes but it has been mended. Who cares if the volume rocker is a plastic button really and by the looks of it the color "peeled away" intentionality to check the button's material. :) I haven't seen any issues myself.

Anyway, there is no perfect phone. thanks for wasting your time and energy... I bought it next week I will be using it...
Wow, one button is not from metal. I have news for you S3 and S4 are made 100% of plastic and no one complains about it. Stop complain about stupid things, Htc One is a great phone, if you don't like it buy another one. Peace!
AnonD-132843, 10 Apr 2013Htc one best seller. 2013See if you are still thinking the same after reading my findings about HTC ONE.
These 2 are the claims (Zero Gap Construction and Full Metal Body) in HTC advertisement.
(A) Zero Gap Construction Problem
* See those gaps in the pictures. It is published in China news. HTC ONE casing is consist of a "U" shape body and a "-" top cover. Two parts are joined together. It is not an "O" shape casing as some thoughts. Many users in China and Taiwan found some gaps after using it for sometimes.
(B) Full Metal Body Problem
* The volume control button is made of electroplating plastic. Not full metal as advertised (Consider marketing gimmick?). The worse part was some user complaints that the paint PEELED OFF.

Initially, when the poor fellow posted his inferior HTC ONE on the forum, HTC fan were aggresively defending their idol and bombarding him with all kind of bad words. All this was made clear after the issues received the official response from HTC. HTC support confirmed that these were true cases. HTC ONE volume control button is really made of electroplating plastic. Happy ending with most forumers apologizing to him of their wrong accuses.

It is just as good as those year 2011 and 2012 smartphone 8MP camera. If you already have a smartphone with 8MP, no point to buy the ONE just for low light. Ask yourself, how often you are in low light condition and need to take photo? Not an upgrade but downgrade if you compare just the camera itself.

Carlos, 09 Apr 2013Ok people stop going on about the camera being 4 megapixel! its 4 ultra pixel for a start (sou... moreFirst, it is not 4 Ultrapixel, it is 4MP. 4MP stand for the resolution or the size of the captured image. If you learn about pixel, there is no such term as Ultrapixel. Pixel < Megapixel < Gigapixel. HTC is lying. It is just a name not a term.
It is not about the lens, it is the sensor. HTC is a different sensor which is 1/3" sensor. With the help of aperture F/2.0, HTC One camera can capture light more than 300X.
HTC One camera is good at low-light but the worst at other parts. To tell you the truth, One camera can capture good image only near object at night.
iPhone 5 and Galaxy S4 have far better camera than the One. If you opt for a camera-phone, don't choose HTC One or you will regret it. Trust me because I own it.
