AnonD-292234, 08 Aug 2014A BIG NO TO HTC ONE. A CRAP METAL from HTC, a COMPANY THAT CHEATS customers in the name of sel... morei have the htc one and after reading you comment, i disagree, it sounds to me its you cell phone provider, and maybe your phone was one out of a million that had issues.
My Husband has HTC One M7 on Android 4.4.2 in UK Vodafone locked to network.
He is having phone calls dropped when phoning me on my Google Nexus 5 LG which is not Network Locked or Branded.
When I phone my friend on Virgin Mobile on his Motorola Moto X I get no cut off of calls.
I have this evening tried ringing Vodafone and HTC.
Vodafone are useless like a chocolate fire guard.
I rang HTC who advised that Android 4.4.4 will not be coming as they are doing a temporary patch on 4.4.3 as they will be issuing Android L for HTC One M7.
The guy also advised that 4.4.3 has been temporarily withdrawn due to faults in it and will be re issued soon. How soon he was not sure for locked handsets but did not wish to give a timescale that turned out be wrong.
Please can anyone advise me if they have locked Vodafone HTC One M7 and if they are having call drop issues.
My Husband is in mind to sell his HTC One and buy a Google Nexus 5 as mine is working without problem.
Any advice is most appreciated.
A BIG NO TO HTC ONE. A CRAP METAL from HTC, a COMPANY THAT CHEATS customers in the name of selling a flagship phone !!
As a happy owner of HTC desire HD, was very happy with the announcement of “HTC one” last year and that excitement pushed me to sign a 2 years contract with Singtel and own the same for myself after paying a hefty $350+ upfront payment, since the device was not available with other vendors then.
I was a proud owner of a stunning device with all the newest features that a smart phone could have then. Unfortunately that pride did not last long, had to visit the HTC service center as per SingTel’s recommendation after they tried to fix my 3G/4G connection issue with a SIM card replacement. HTC service center happily repaired the device and handed it over to me and I accepted it without knowing that it was just a beginning of what turned out to be my painful experience with the device and its vendor’s service. Yes after less than two months had to visit the service center again, again they repaired and told that the device was working properly, then again I had to visit them in few days, this time they said they replaced the motherboard and I thought it would be the end of my mental agony and wasting of my valuable time with the service centers, but NO …NO .. Here again, I have a big issues like “Cannot speak / listen to when a call is made, the calls getting disconnected often, a strange sound from device speakers, not able to attend a call using head phones…
This time I did not want to go the service center again and instead wanted to escalate this to Singtel who, actually the seller of the device to me. Met a Customer Service executive at “SingTel Customer service center, West Mall complex, Bukit Batok” on 16th July, 2014 with all those previous report cards of the HTC service center and explained him about the current issue with my device and he did confirm the issues from his end and promised me that this would be escalated to the management and later introduced the stores Retail Operations manager Mr. Low Kiang Fook, who said the reports card have been scanned and send across to HTC and till they respond I ought to be using some other phone or go for a contract renewal to buy a new phone.
Now after posting this horrible experience in HTC singapore's facebook site, got a call from them requesting to send the mobile for servicing again. I thought there would be a permenant solution for every thing this time , but NO NO NO !!! ...they diagnosed the device again and quoted $300 for upperboard + main board replacement +diagnosis charge since this device is now 15 months old !!!and the last mother board that was changed last march only has 3 months warrenty .. MY GOSH !! This time I wanted to respond them the following way
How could you ( HTC ) brazenly ask money for the repair when you have sold a DEFECTIVE device to a customer.
This CRAP DEVICE went for servicing for four times in less than 15 and a half months since I bought this in the month of April, 2013 and this is the third time you are suggesting a motherboard replacement (motherboard was changed twice during first 11 months of the purchase and the recent one being in the month of March, 2014 ). Are four servicing and 3 Mother board replacements in 15 months acceptable for a so-called PREMIUM, FLAGSHIP phone from HTC ??.
I am adding all the previous communications, report cards for your reference and if you have some dignity, morality and business ethics left in you ( HTC ), accept that you have cheated a customer by selling a defective device and compensate my losses (Money/service/time/mental peace ) with a 1 to 1 replacement. If you still want me to pay the money for your FAULT, then let me convey this . !!! KEEP THE PIECE OF CRAP WITH YOU, CONSIDER THE DEVICE as my donation for your R&D dept to try producing a REAL FLAGSHIP device !!. I WILL MAKE SURE THAT MY HORRIBLE & PATHETIC EXPERIENCE WITH HTC ONE GETS to EVERY POSSIBLE SOCIAL NETWORKING SITE & BLOG AND STOPS PEOPLE FROM FALLING PREY TO THIS HOAX of BUYING A FLAGSHIP PHONE FROM HTC

Friends iwant to bny htc m7 plz advise me its performance and galaxy s4 better or htc m7 kindly suggest me .Sorry for poor English.
You just can't Beat its sound output both in earphones or Loudspeaker when compared with Sony or Samsung phones! Hi guys! I've been using Xperia S since 2 years. Its been a week completed with my HTC one M7. The most beautiful looking phone in my office, said by my colleagues.
It came with Sense 6.0 and 4.4.2 out of the box.
Camera :- I think its focuses is like SLR cameras. The blur effect is just amazing. Lot of difference than my misty, dull 12 MP Xperia S photos. Luckily I did not find pink tint issue.
Processor:- Spc says 2GBRAM, actual in phone 1.7GB RAM. 55 to 60% always in use but still no lag at all.
Beats audio is good but to really get the BASS out of it, you should install Poweramp after that Boom..Boom you hear even if you put big Headphones unlike the under powered amps in Sony Phones.
Battery:- Slow charging time :(..Standby time is good but start using whatsapp and you'll loose battery 1% in every 10 minutes.
Heat:- Don't use Chrome, it heats the phone like lava. I know, the metal body helps. Stock browser is far better.
What you will like about this phone :-
Sound output like PC. 70% I use for music, that's why I choose HTC phone.
Camera like SLR.
Fast Processing speed.
You won't like:-
The performance is amazing but I am hugely disappointed with the camera due to the purple tint. In less than 6 months my camera screen went purple and since then I have not been able to use the camera at all.
hai frnds i wanna take htc one 801e. Have u any pblm with ph who r using it plz tell me frnds

Has anyone heard if the microphone problem has been adressed in the HTC One M8? After two years with a great HTC One M7, the microphone (for notrmal calls) went out for no reason. The speaker phone works fine. HTC tech acknowledged this is a known problem with the HTC One M7.
NeEarly Perfect phone.
The only cons is the camera (even though it's not that bad, and video recording is top quality) and maybe the battery. For being just 2300mAh it lasts more than I expected, but I think it would have not been so difficult to use a bigger battery to assure we can always reach 24 hours of normal use
Can someone give a detailed info about possible upgrade of HTC One (M7) in to Android 4.3 or even Android L soon!?
