Good: Camera low light performance, infrared blaster for TV remotee support and eventuallymodel her ir devices, amazingly good screen, speakers, zoe blink feed 2GB ram 32/64gb mod
Bad: Makes all other phones look old news
Comment: having played this phone for quite a long time the other day it is by far the greatest phone I've ever used the screen is amazing the cameras low light performance is mind blowing the speed and smoothness is very slick everything on this phone polished search for high degree it makes all the other phones look old just wish I sent the shots I took on it by bluetooth so I could show everyone the great noise handling I took them without flash and did the same with my current phone to see the difference I was in a dimly lit pub and the shots came out like I was outside in daylight this phone really has set an extremely high standard that I feel others won't match for the next few years it's that far ahead I can't wait to get one. HTC have took the android crown back and won't be losing it for a long time to come
Good: Blink feed - innovative camera - metal construction
Bad: Maybe an average battery life
Comment: Looks great, has fresh innovation, and the camera seems to be pretty impressive. I also really like the idea of Blinkfeed. I'm not going to bother waiting for the Galaxy S4. Just going to be more of the same with the same plastic body. Love Android phones, and iPhone users are doinks..so I'd never have one. I like what I see on the new HTC One. It gets my vote and they get my money. Sorry Samsung, you took too long this time. You snooze, you lose.
Good: Build quality
Bad: Nothing that I can see so far
Comment: I like it. I'm not going to buy a "Mee too phone" (iPhone) and just waste my money on a docking system for Apple apps. And I dont want a Galaxy SIII because in spite of the great performance, it's a piece of plastic. This HTC One seems to offer the best of all worlds, with new innovation and new ideas. Yes, I'll be putting an order in for one.
Good: Design, Skin on top of Android, Large and brilliant screen, the IR transmitter
Bad: no wireless charging
Comment: This appears like an iPhone 6 design and which makes it that much more incredible, as its a great android phone with an incredible design.
Bad: Battery perhaps
Comment: How could you rate HTC One against a phone that is not available yet "Might not be enough to challenge Samsung's next flagship"
Anyway I think its great but the battery life is expected to be poor. Although the battery is much powerful than previous remember this will zap more than the rest. They need a 3100 like the Samsung Galaxy note
Good: 1080p, 1.7ghz, gorgeous
Bad: No expandable storage
Comment: 500 quid and no expandable strorage? I forgave the nexus 4 because it is 280 quid. 120 quid more and you can't get expandable storage? Not for me
Comment: I always check out this website for iPhone alternatives - www.microsoftapple.com - My personal favourite is the Nokia Lumia because of the camera and speed of the operating system.
Good: Looks and construction
Bad: Maybe the camera!
Comment: What I would really like to see on an HTC phone is better syncing with Microsoft Outlook. Forget all the fancy features that you may play with for a week and then forget. I need a working phone that tells me what I need to do, Where I need to be, and who my contacts are. At the moment I can only do the calender bit of it through Google Calender Sync or similar or buy third party syncing software.
Good: 1080p screen, lightning processor, RAM, image stabilization
Bad: Battery, no expandable storage, not weather resistant
Comment: This phone has many great features, but with such a bad battery, I can't see it lasting a full day without little charges throughout.
Good: Build quality, Camera software and new BlinkFeed
Bad: Beats music processor. Usual bad battery life
Comment: HTC usually lacks build-in music equalizer and sound processor for their default music player. When going with Beats processor, it only works with headphones plugged-in. Will this HTC One be any different?
