i used to own a htc phone but just due to the only problem with htc is the camera (increase mega pixel) which used to be the best in both low light and normal use along with poor battery life. otherwise the built quality and memory are good enough for a flagship phone and plus htc and other manufacturers should increase the ram to min 4gb.
i really dont think we need a 64bit procie on a mobile phone right now, i mean just how much apps are you going to run all at the same time in a mobile phone? to need more than 4gb ram? i think android os is the one who needs to speed up development rather than hardware, we need the complete update and stable version of that ART to run apps faster instead of relying on brute strength
the only problem i found with htc is non replaceable battery.. And dis s where samsung keep beating them hands down. Htc pls make d battery replaceable and include micro sd with increase in mega pixel camera. Then u wil b on top

i think arm processors on phones are at an
incipient maturation level, at the point where
gains in processor power will have marginal perceptual impact on the user experience

HTC One. Now if they make a 8UP camera
with an aperture f2.0, that would be

userzero, 15 Nov 2013KLP and KitKat are the same thing. Nestle paid to have the name changed.Actually, that's not true. no money changed hands in the deal. it was simply the fact that many people didn't know what Key Lime Pie was, or how it tasted, and they wanted something more recognizeable. Also the fact of 4.4 (kitkats have 4 bars) and it's a staff favorite chocolate bar over at Google.
It's not about making money, it's not about selling out (think about it, do you really think Google needs Nestle's money? Nestle's part is putting Android images on the kitkat bars for a while). it's about them finding that kitkat was a better fit, and I happen to agree. (though I do love KLP, it's not as recognizable)

The design and dual speakers of htc one wowed me but unfortunately it was out of stock often which saved a lot of bucks in my pocket and I end up not buying one

Steve, 15 Nov 2013Yeah, I don't know about it running KitKat. KLP will out by then.KLP and KitKat are the same thing. Nestle paid to have the name changed.
nothing's wrong with HTC One design, besides the power button on top, and the next version will be slightly bigger. Sony Xperia 1s comes close but those bezel is still too big
And is it relevent these days with Samsung chipset going for 64 bit whatever 8 core they have coming. How much power do you actually need to play games on a 5 inch screen
As long as the phone is ergonomic and doesn't use cheap 'feeling' plastic then all is fine for a premium phone.
same design, snapdragon s800 wich will be arleady old in 2 months, nobody will look for HTC anymore...I love HTC One, I have it, but I want a diffrent story next year or I will stick with the One, I don't want the same design with slight optimization...get back to work HTC and make good smartphones with 5"-5.2" screen, max 1,8mm bazels, other improved design, 8 ultrapixel camera or 16mp camera, 3500mha battery, 64gb internal storage, or 32/64 but with card slot, better stereo sound and keep the same good software
MY WISH: An HTC One with a 5.2" screen, Snapdragon 800, and 8mp ultrapixel camera. I'd get one for myself, one for my wife, and one for my son.

Newer technology is always welcome, and it's good to see how 64 bit chipsets are paving way for using rams over 4gb. But for all practical reasons, no smartphone manufacturer is at their mercy, and ram usage is not as big a problem as is being conceived. Hence, 64-bit chipsets are essentially a marketing gimmick for now, and probably cannot break fortunes of what's a excellent piece of engineering excellence.
