If you plan buying this phone don't. It is not the problem of low specs. It is the problem that the battery is very poor and so is software support & development. It has been a long long time since ME owners, including me for a while, are waiting for the Marshmallow update.
Unlocking this phone and rooting it is complicated. It even involves extra costs (Sunshine) and there are only a couple of stock firmware's available for this device (2 or 3). No modding, no development. Dead. A 4K video uploaded on YouTube from this device will be rejected because this phone films 4K in an unusual resolution/encoding that is not yet supported.
Worst is the battery I tell you. It drains super fast like crazy fast: 0,5% per minute in a 3D game. Then if is a hot day outside and the phone is in the sun the battery wont even charge because of the temperature. I tell you this phone has a lot of technical flaws. My experience was with a dual-sim version. The display also fails in the sun light. And be careful this is not the only model affected by these kind of issues.
All HTC One series is more or less. HTC tried to make something god and they're trying for years to release that marshmallow update... fantastic... I wold not buy this phone even for half the price. I still feel betrayed by this phone and by HTC fot the money I gave.
This could been a Great phone!
But due to battery draining when use normal apps and the phone get extremly hot I can't recommend this phone to any one. :(
It for sure does make me less happy that they still haven't delivered the Android 6.x either.
A real good deal still doesn't make this phone any good due to heat and battery draining.
So move on and look for something else.
Have been using this phone for 6 months. My phone has hanging issues. Does any one face the same problem. Does any one have any idea how to restart the phone if the phone hangs???
Giri, 26 Aug 2016Bought this 10 months back at a whopping price. Right from day 1 the battery life has been app... moreany news about marshmallow update???
now other high end phones will start to receive NOUGAT update & M9+,ME & E9+ are still waiting for marshmallow.. :(
Bought this 10 months back at a whopping price. Right from day 1 the battery life has been appalling and it gets hot enough only to stop short of scalding me.
Now, in the 10th month the microphone has stopped working. It took the service center in Bangalore 6 days to get the lower PCB (too many HTC models,spares will be an issue) and was replaced. But still did not revive the mic. Now the service center wants to change the mother PCB and try. They need 7 days.For close to Rs.40k, I have bought lots of trouble.

Thinking of exchanging this phone as of rapid battery discharge and overheating issues and poor battery life. Used it for 6 months and really unsatisfied with its battery thing. So now the time has come for an upgrade. Oneplus 2 or Z3+?
Honest ans plz. And state the reason.
AnonD-320405, 05 Jul 20162016 Q1 & Q2 ended but No Marshmallow update for HTC One MEWaiting the same till today, no response, battery charging us very slow and draining very fast
i mistakenly dropped my HTC ONE ME in the water bucket...it was submerged completely for 6-7 sec......and this beast survived like a champ....no problem whatsoever....there was some minor problem like speaker off for some time and water inside camera lense....but after drying up for some time everything was fine like nothing happened....kudos HTC.....
only 1 regret for buying this phone is about the software update.....where is marshmallow.... :-(
That's what i am waiting for too, i really hope HTC will release 6.0 for the HTC One ME soon, at least before end of this year 2016 after all the device has all the hardware features to run the 6.0
Does anybody here had/ has an upgraded android? Marshmallow upgrade?
There are many hanging, Phantom touch and battery issues... Is the whole problem more in the software as the hardware is great specs... No Andriod 6 update until now in India.
