As a year long HTC one owner I can tell you that the phone is nothing short of fantastic! People complain about heating issue, lag and battery life. Personally my One only started heating up during extensive use or intense games. As for lag, only from time to time. You have to expect this from ANY android device that has a custom skin overlaying it. Samsung may have good phones overall but their touchwiz overlay is the worst of all. Plus they force you with features you don't need. Which slows down your phone to begin with and not meet up with its specs potential. Anyway let's look at the facts:
1.The difference is the One's aluminum body. Aluminum is a very good heat conductor, so when the CPU gets hot, the phone's body acts as a heat sink, pulling the heat away from the CPU. This is good for the CPU. Also due to the heat distribution the body will be equally warm. HTC has updated its sense ui to kitkat, which is arguably much less power consumption thus less heat ect ect.
2.HTC knew that the battery life could have been an issue so through software they integrated a power saver mode which gets me through the day on regular use.
Now if your worried about the heating issue when u play games or use it too long the get a $7 case from eBay. That simple.

This is the worst phone. U r simply wasting ur money by buying this product. This phone has lot of bugs like heating problem,battery, network & camera problems.
Even there service center are the worst coz they always dont have the parts & if they have...rates are so high.
Rather go for Apple or samsung.
Will never buy a htc phone they are quietly brilliant in looting people.
HEY guys , I have been using this HTc one for more than a year and I love it very much anyone wanna buy this phone should go for it without a second thought , but the only and annoying problem is battery drains very fast , the processor very fast , no heat up , camera main good but not too good , frnt average , but keepin all these things aside this phone looks great , and touch is very good , no signal drop, no bullshit , atlast this is great phone
I have had this phone and already replaced it once and it wasn't even 6 months. The signal is poor, the battery life is horrible,kicks me out of apps a lot. As soon as it hits the 14% battery life mark it drops to being dead within a couple of min. The touch screen is horrible too it won't let you tap on much and when you try it'll send you somewhere else. I have turned off anything that would constantly run that it would allow me and it still drains the battery bad when it's not in use. I can't get a new one but I would recommend NOT getting this one.
HTC One M7 camera has purple tint. Here in India HTC will replace the camera for only those who have warranty. Mine is out of warranty, so they said I need to pay. I already paid for the phone, which you at HTC couldnt build with quality materials in the first place. Only the outer case is of quality stuff. Customer satisfaction should be the ultimate aim for HTC or any other company.
i friends, Has anyone tried Tempered glass screen protector? If so How's the screen quality compared to normal plastic ones?
I'm planning to buy Nillkin tempered protector, Is it good? or else Is there any good screen protector for this beast?
Please suggest me guys...
Is it just me r the keyboard is messed up after the update? I never missed so much buttons, it is going on my nevers when im typing. And the camera taking pics and vids r gonne yellowish collor. What a heck is going on??
If it didn't have to most HORRIBLE, GODAWFUL camera of ANY phone I have literally EVER used including the cheap Nokia then I'd give it better ratings. This pathetic excuse for a camera NEVER focuses, has no true function and even the camcorder (which sucks even worse as if THAT could be possible) is so bad that 9 out of TEN videos are so out of focus that you can't even see what's being shot. This PHONE needs to be shot. Your stuck with the lame feed, and I seriously freaking HATE THIS PHONE! I HAD a great phone but broke the screen on a stone tiled floor and Verizon forced this piece of crap on me. No wonder IT SUCKS!!!!! I hate this phone and I HATE MYSELF for paying the extra hundred for a PATHETIC upgrade. My god, if all you do is text then its a great phone, but dont think you will ever get that great pic or quick video lol. I can't wait until I can burn this piece of shit.
i hate Htc one(m7) camera Quality.... htc one camera has no control on camera sensor.... -_-
I've read that it is possible to choose the sound buttons as shutter button in camera options. But as I understand it's only available for Sense6?
Is it possible to get the Sense6 in Europe at this point?

Maybe if you did some research about clearing your cache before updating, you wouldn't be complaining on an internet forum.

Build quality is top notch, decent battery life, great audio quality and excellent screen clarity. There is no reason not to buy this. Go for it
