I decided to buy a Htc One M7 Silver from an online store. They can test the phone for me before they send it. What should I ask them to test? Camera? Conectivity? What?
In North America the HTC One (M7) just got an Update to HTC Sense 6.
Now the M7 has most of the Software Features that the M8 has (obviously the added Features for the second "Aperture" (on the Back) are not available on the M7).
The default Theme (after Update and ReBoot) is ugly flat green, so go into your Personalization and change your Theme (and reset your Wallpaper).
The "Weather" (Main Screen) seems broken and will not update (hopefully it is a temporary Server problem and we will not need yet another Update to fix it). If you do not like the Weather well now you are set !
The Camera adds a BUNCH of new Features including the STRANGE "Make-up Level" (which I will not use for Selfies, nor take Selfies in any event). ;) .

I dont know if the phone I have is an M7 or M8 to tell you the truth because I got it from Sprint in America about 10 months ago when it had first been released here and it was just marketed as an HTC One with no mention of M7 or M8.

The 1520 and icon are decent but they are no match for 1020. They are more like equal to s5.
I find that galaxies take decent photos.
I have a great album from my s4. Oh and I live to take panoramas. No one can beat s4 at that. It takes amazing 60 MP panoramas.
I admit that s4 isn't even close to 1020 but that has a 1/1.6 inch sensor. Almost 3 times bigger than s4. So let's not compare a smartphone with camera phone.
Have a nice day
This phone does not have 900 Mhz on the 3G/HSDPA band (for AT&T phones), please, fix this issue or be more specific.
Should be like this:
3G Network HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100
Not to get confused...This phone have one of best cameras...Ppl look for mpx and that is wrong... Reason u should get thin phone and u like taking photos is because this phone have ultra-pixel camera(2micro meters pixels)with advanced sensors... This technology provides to capture 300% more lights and information on 1 pixel than standard phones cameras...So dont get confused...

No phone can reach the camera quality of the Lumia devices. Galaxy S4 or even S5 camera only good at daylight photography. Its indoor and low-light performances not really good. But Lumia phones are good at any condition.

And that too with processing issues such as overexposure. Plus it has a purple hue defect in most of the pieces in low light. That's a major issue and I saw it on many m7 pieces.
But m7 is a much better phone than s3 if you leave the camera. The build quality, the speakers, speed of the ui and many things. If you look for a good camera, then see the s4 or a Samsung phone.
i am using galaxy s3 but i am planing to buy this htc one(m7) i love it's build quality but i want to know about its camera is it better than s3 plz tell me guys
Saurav Ghosh, 13 May 2014What phone are you using now?I'm currently using a HTC M8. I'm really happy with it. Only issue is, it's quite heavy for me, I don't like the heavy phones. Its size doesn't really bother me, but I still prefer the size & weight of my previous M7. I think M8 Mini has to release in the second quarter of this year. If it has a 1080p display I will buy it.
Saurav Ghosh, 13 May 2014You made a typo, I said you choose quantity over quality, and I stick with my comment.
For ... moreI consider advanced user as the one who uses the phone much more and explores practically every feature.
Except the smart stay, smart pause and those air crap, I use each and every feature of phone. Pedometer, temp and humidity sensor, group play, s beam, multi window. I take full use of them. I just use each and every feature of a phone. I consider this as an advanced user.
And I didn't make a typo. I also prefer quality over quantity. Just I want a quality camera, screen, audio and features and you want quality Call, vibration and built.
BTW when and at what price are you getting m7?
Techno J, 13 May 2014If I need a fully functional phone, I would rather buy a LG phone. What phone are you using now?
shubham yadav, 13 May 2014You have a very different and simple usage. However my conditions and needs are totally differ... moreYou made a typo, I said you choose quantity over quality, and I stick with my comment.
For your usage pattern S4 is definitely the better phone. However I still don't know the definition of 'advanced' user though.
Samsung or Apple, they were never about quality. The last quality phone Samsung ever released was the S2.
Techno J, 13 May 2014If I need a fully functional phone, I would rather buy a LG phone. LG's ui looks horrible, their phones don't get updates and they pack lcd screens and no microsd cards. So they aren't fully functional after all.
I consider every phone and till now only Samsung phones can satisfy me. That's just my opinion and needs though.
For each his own. M8 is perfect for you. Samsung for me atleast for now. Next time will tell.
