OK, so just got my HTC One today and I am pretty blown away.
The new Sense UI is great. The transfer from old phone tools which HTC built in make transferring contacts and stuff great.
But what blew me away was watching a music video from you tube, with the music coming out of the speakers.
INCREDIBLE. The Picture quality was amazing, but the sound quality is something to be in awe of. Fine, it's not your full high spec stereo, but for a phone????
So, I'm stil discovering it's capabilities, but so far...
It was my favorite candidate to next phone...until this: http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/HTC+One+Teardown/13494/1
AnonD-127115, 02 Apr 2013This is great phone, but non-removable battery plus lack of sdcard slot is a deal breaker for me.I prefer to use a external battery pack to charge/run I can use if needed. I prefer it as I don't have to restart the phone to switch batteries. Just plug it in while I'm using it and it charges it. I use a Anker SlimTalk 3200mAh Backup External Battery Pack pack which has a built in cord, can charge other things like my tablet, flashlight and is very small.
Also, 64GB is plenty for me although I would prefer adding my own micro SD card.

Second of all Android is an open source. Google will never limit it, that's for sure. It's what gives them progress, innovation and the lead.

Samsung is also good phone, ther is nothingwrong if plastic is being used in a phone. but its interface dosent has that professional look like iphone and blackberry like htc.
but what do you think where will samsung and other droids left if Google decides to flow its own phones into market and dosent allows licenses to sam-sony-htc its for sure that they are using googles bullets to fire with their arms what if the bullets are no longer there! Apple and google will be the only giants then.
This is great phone, but non-removable battery plus lack of sdcard slot is a deal breaker for me.
Why HTC got away from 1. Removable memory and 2. Removable battery is beyond me. Other than that the specs look good, but for those reasons alone I'll stick with my HTC Desire HD.

But The crunch came down to the bottom speaker fascia to body which has a lip which is sharp and if caught rips the front off ! (see drop test) on front falling off and as stated it doesn,t just clip back on .

Please provide the details.
Hey those who hail for HTC one just check its repairability score.this bloody phone has got just 1 out of 10.If some problem occurs you are stranded with this rubbish HTC one phone.
bilal, 31 Mar 2013How about the software update for the camera? Is it coming out with d fone?the final HTC One units that will release commercially already have the updated software for the camera.. it's already posted here in gsmarena.
People don't realise that although Samsung may have "invented" some S features they are more or less just gimmicks that aren't that useful anyways. People I know including myself, don't use half of it (or more) and the features are just disabled. S voice, smart rotate, multi window... Disabled.
People don't realise HTC gave us the first Android phone, and of course first Sense phone that actually made Android useful. Android wouldn't be what it is today if it weren't for HTC and Sense UI. Others only copy it and it's features. From motion control, speed dialer to camera controls and features and so on. I'm really happy to see HTC on the rise again and I hope they take the Android throne back from Samsung. As soon as it lands in my country I intend to sell my Galaxy Note2 in favor of HTC One. The body, the screen, the sound, the UI, the camera. BlinkFeed, Zoe, BoomSound are just some of the things that make me want to have it. Cheers!
