htc one have the same great sound on headphones like htc 8x, 8s and butterfly. all these four models have built-in the new real hardware amplifier made by beats, wich rises the output voltage with 8v for big headphones with high impedance. all new htc's sounds better and louder than ipads. previous models of htc like one x or one s do not have headphones amplifier. they have only a software dynamic booster, somehow a loudness control, engineered by beats,and for this reason one x and one s sound lower than iphone 4s or ipads. but htc one is the king of sound in android world. CAMERA IS ALSO EXCEPTIONAL.it's sensor is very big and the dimension of the sensor is more important than resolution. resolution is useful only for printing on paper or zooming in. i see my photos and videos from htc one only on my 60" Panasonic neo plasma. this all i need. the 4 mp camera in 16:9 mode like htc one have is like setting a 6 mp camera from useless 4:3 aspect ratio to 16:9. for example, a 8 mp camera in 16:9 have indeed only 6 mp in 16:9. htc one have a very good sharpness and contrast even in low light
Anonymous, 07 Jul 2013If I bought an HTC One that was locked, then unlocked it and I am using it with another carrie... moreThe global version is totally different with the carrier version. The global version using stock rom from google nor the carrier for their own rom. That why you can not update without the official rom from the manufacture!
If I bought an HTC One that was locked, then unlocked it and I am using it with another carrier, is that considered SIM free? or does SIM free mean that I bought it from HTC?

If your phone is not sim free/network locked (stop posting comments here and speak to your network provider.
Just a quick question for those who got the update, was your HTC One the 801n or the 801e version of the handset ?
niklex, 07 Jul 2013Here are the main problems still not solved:
1. Having a 1080p screen I am forced to use a ... morePost your complaints in some official/popular HTC One forum (to get more people add to your complaint) and send them to HTC customer care and insist (you can call too), that will give you a chance they will fix these problems.
MENINBLK, 07 Jul 2013Why only Carrier Free ???Because these don't have bloatware. In subsided ones (carriers) they first have to update their software, go into testings, etc. these demands quite more time, so that's why updates for retail devices are quicker.
PD: Ignore iPhone users, they must be bored. Understandable.
