Samsung is going to murder HTC if HTC doesn't change the way they make their phones.
Remember that the current CEO of HTC will departure if HTC One fails. That can lead HTC to the death.
Again, my list of disadvantages are highly the reasons why HTC fails horribly against other brands.

And when it comes to smartphones, i pick the very best. And yes, one has disadvantages, but I can live with them, since they look minor to me. Like of course, it could have micro sd slot, but I'm pretty sure I won't need more than 32GB, and if I need there are dropboxes and stuff. And.. yeah, this is the only real disadvantage I can think of. The other things you wrote are either not true or they don't concern me. Remember, every user has his own needs. For me, build quality and looks are VERY important. As well as sound and screen quality. This one has it all.

I mean, come on, look outside of the bubble and see the real world today.
Most of the reasons i wrote down is the good damn reason why HTC are going badly today. Take the hint.
And i'm afraid HTC wont do it any better with the HTC One either because of those reasons i wrote down.
Normally i don't tell Android users to see outside of the bubble, but you are the reason i might start to say it in the same way as i have to tell that to some iOS users sometimes to.

U made this up pretty much like everything else u listed. The one is the best money can buy at the moment, face it. Who cares about wireless charging, which is slower than normal charging? Who cares about removable battery lol?
And the camera, by the way, is awesome, unless you are gonna print big photos from it. I never printed from my phone, dunnow about you.
And sammy galaxy? :D c'mon man, it sucks big time. I held it in my hands, the s3.. It looks ugly, feels ugly, and the whole interface is ugly. Nuff said.

Store everything on a memory card and when you lose your phone, you lose everything with it.
God gave us fingers, so I think I will make use of them. But I will wave good buy to Samsung.
Smart stay, the amount of Samsung users who say the don't use it or it doesn't work.
Samsung copy a bunch of apps from google and put an S infront. 24 letters left for the other manufacturers to grab.
Burst mode in the S3 was rubbish, you had to go through a menu to use it.
Spot metering never worked on the S3
Audio on a HTC Desire C out performed the S3
It does not have text reflow
It doesn't have pocket mode
It can be mistaken for a child's toy because it feels like one.
Isn't Samsung just a re-branded iPhone
Samsung copy HTC last year
This year they copied HTC, Nokia, BlackBerry, Sony, LG and the Google play store.
I was in Barcelona at the HTC stand and every day Samsung had a group of people at HTC stand through out the day. So I decided to ask them why, is it because HTC inspire you, they said yes.
Why does Samsung so much on marketing, their product should sell by itself, but they don't have the confidence in there own products.
Samsung show me the moneeeeey!!!

Have fun with a phone that not gonna save HTC's doom.
HTC One have those disadvantages.
1. No microSD car slot.
2. No changable battery.
3. Really poor codec support.
4. Crappy camera. The only place where the camera is good is in low lights.
5. Poor use of the front to the screen.
6. Can't use the phone with gloves on.
7. No ability to charge the phone wirelessly.
8. The phone doesn't have a 'menu' button like the Samsung Galaxy S phones have, witch means that button have to take up space on the screen.
9. Doesn't have any smart features like the Samsung Galaxy S III and Galaxy S IV have.
10. The phone is much thicker than the Samsung Galaxy S IV.
11. And because the HTC One have a curved backside, then it wont be sitting stable on the table if you are writing an e-mail / SMS on the phone.
There you have 11 good reasons to stay away from the HTC One. But ofc, if you cares more about the design over the software and functionality, then go ahead.
1) While deciding about camera on htc one ,htc thought why to give 8 mp or 13 mp cause our sheep fanboys r fools and they will buy whatever we sell ..
2)....come on htc ppl r not fools ....and guys u know what will htc do after some time they will make htc one 1/2 and they will give 8 mp ultrash***t cam and after some time they will make htc 2 with 13 mp ultrash***t cam and sell it for more price
3) same thing they have done with htc sensation htc one x etc and the ppl who will buy htc one now will REGRET That cause they wud think why did i buy this and i sud hav waited for some time ..and i wud hav got better specs..
4).. if u dont belive me go ask any htc sensation or htc one x user ..thats the reason htc u need to GROW UP and stop being GREEDY for money....and give what ppl r actually looking for like samsung always gives what ppl look for and they always stay on top ....but i have to agree the design is killer..on htc one but i am sick of htcs buisness tricks ....
5) htc can really sell mellions of phone if they really GROW UP ...and think like a average joe..
6) still hoping 4 htc 2 directly after 2 to 3 months with 13 mp cam ...and a 5 " 1080p display and a little extra juice...may be 2500 mah or 2600 mah .or more..and same build quality...
Well, you can give it fancy names all you want, you can even give us a chemical formula, it will always be what it really is - a cheap plastics. LOL, about cheap aluminium, well, maybe it would be wise for you to read reviews all around the web (including this one here) and what guys who were holding it in hand say about it - a "premium feeling". That's what Samsung's plastic does't have. Peace :)
Yeah, unfortunately the camera performance kills this phone for me. I'd expect an upgrade switching from a 2 year phone, not a downgrade.

Most of the comment have come from people who have never even used the phone. I have One and it amazing. Best phone I have ever used.
How is it so many people keep leaving comments on how amazing this phone is, yet the ones who don't have yet want to put it down.
Haters go back to apple or Samsung, I'm sticking with the One!!
And guys please crib about the camera only if u "print" the photos........else don't bother!!

Plastic is so poor q... moreFirst of all, just because you are blind and cant see the differences from normal plastic to Polycarbonate doesn't mean we should listen to a person who have no clue what so ever about what you're talking about.
And just because it looks plasticy it doesn't mean it's made out of normal plastic.
If that's the case, then i can say that the HTC One is made out of poor and cheap aluminum made for beer cans.
I'll rather have a plasticy feeling on my phone that have Polycarbonate that is pretty much bullet proof rather than use poor and cheap aluminum made for beer cans that just cracks after you miss it into the asphalt.
Yes, I expect you to take me seriously because I am writing this on SGS3. Plastic is so poor quality that you can see smearing lights around led light and buttons (I have the white one). Someone may be ok with it, but for 500+ € I am definitely not. Cheers.
markoko, 23 Mar 2013On SGS3 you can see pixels from time to time because of the pentile matrix. High-end phone? Al... moreLOL, do you believe we will take your seriously when you can say Samsung Galaxy S III have low quality plastic?
I recommend you to see this before you open your mouth again on what's good or not good: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hsls5ZPCUnE
Polycarbonate is not a normal plastic as you say it is.
Oh about the HTC One's camera. The only place where the camera is good is in low light situations. In every other situations, it's extremely horrible. Yes, that's a fact.
HTC have never been known for making smartphones with good cameras. And they will not just suddenly make a good camera on the HTC One either.
HTC will never make a smartphone with a good camera.
HTC One have so many disadvantages atm that i'm afraid i wont buy it.
