The good: The HTC One flaunts a stunning metal design, a powerful quad-core processor, and a beautiful 4.7-inch, 1080p screen. It runs Android Jelly Bean, takes great pictures, and has a feature-packed camera app.
The bad: The sealed case design means no SD expansion slot or user-replaceable battery. The BlinkFeed software can't be completely removed.
The bottom line: A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone.
Best Phone I've owned since my last new iPhone.
by Mr_Napa on February 25, 2014
Pros: Speed, screen, camera, size, sound.
Cons: Once in a great while--like maybe once a month--if I quick access the camera and then click the screen off I can't get back into the phone right away because my screen lock is inaccessible for approximately 5 seconds.
Summary: Okay, for once I KNOW my review will stand the test of time. I know because I write this review two months after buying my HTC One (Verizon). This phone ...
Summary: Okay, for once I KNOW my review will stand the test of time. I know because I write this review two months after buying my HTC One (Verizon). This phone is the one I've been looking for ever since I decided to move away from my iPhone and what felt like its shackles. My first phone after the iPhone was a Samsung S4 Active, which turned out to be a MAJOR P.O.S. (for me, anyway). I ended up selling the S4 (the person that bought it, likes it) and used the $200 toward paying my ETF with AT&T and my new HTC One with Verizon.
I wish I had bought the HTC from the start. The phone is AWESOME. Because I am a heavy user I also bought the Mophie case and I have been completely and thoroughly satisfied with it's performance. It does not lock up and become unusable like the S4 Active, and I am constantly learning new tricks--e.g., tonight I learned that if I hold down the shutter button the camera takes a bunch of pictures and then offers me the best one with the choice of deleting the rest. That.is.awesome.
Anyway, I very highly recommend buying this phone. It is everything that my iPhone was, and much, much more.

Phone is awesome considering its outside appearance.
by jaredguyah on January 27, 2014
Pros: Awesome system design.
Cons: Speakers are horrible! I have already had to replace my HTC One once. They have blown again and I am on my way to my third device. It seems as though the Dre Beats audio system is not compatible with the HTC speakers.
Liked the looks but lacks many basic functions.
by gumaran123 on July 25, 2013
Pros: Best build quality after iPhone, awesome screen, great looks and shape. I was able to transfer all phone contacts from iPhone 4S to HTC by Bluetooth pairing. I liked it for first few days but my initial impression has been changed after few days.
Cons: Unable to transfer files from phone to Laptop, WiFi turns on automatically, compatibility issue with Car stereo AUX port, touch screen not perfect, Voice mail listing not nice, Call clarity average, battery does not last more than 28 hours.

Summary: I purchased HTC because my iPhone 4s was coming out of 2 year contract and I did not like apple iphone 5 and galaxy S4 looks. My wife already have samsung note II and decided to try HTC One. Read lot of reviews and made up my mind to try this and I was happy initially but disappointed after few days.
Look and feel of the phone was great. Its smaller than samsung Note II, larger than iphone 4S and the screen was perfect for me. I liked reading news on this phone compared to any other phone I have used in the past. But it lags behind many basic features of iPhone and decided to return it. Back to using my iphone 4S and already feeling its too small for me. But will wait for a better product from HTC.
Cons I have noticed with HTC. Sorry to compare to iphone as I'm not a big fan of iphone, but like the easiness of it.
1. Was unable to play music on my car stereo (Sienna) AUX port while connected to its audio out port which was a big minus for me. But the ear jacks which comes with the phone while connected to the phone worked fine.Iphone had no trouble paying YouTube, musics using AUX port of my car stereo.
2. Was unable to transfer photos and videos from the phone to Laptop. Could not detect the phone in my Windows 7 HP Laptop using USB cable. Spoke to support for 30 minutes, tried all settings different HTC software (sync Manager, HTC sync) and support said I will get a call back from next level of support folks in a weeks time. That was a big disappointment. I'm a techie and tried all troubleshooting steps to detect that device on my PC with no luck.
3. WiFi can turn-on automatically even if you disable it. At office WiFi network Facebook is blocked, so disabled the WiFi and surf the web using the data plan, but after sometime WiFi will turn on automatically and connect to office network. This happened many times
4. The touch screen though good, was not perfect like apple. I have experienced lot of typos while using whatsup app and twitter.
5. The screen-unlock key and emergency-call keys are next to each other and I have hit emergency-call key once by mistake and called 911. This has never happened to me using an iPhone.
6.The go "back" screen did not worked some times and had to hit twice on many occasions.
7. No separate menu to sort voice mails in phone and no option to selectively delete a voice mail. Its an old school to call voicemail number and press 7 to delete it.

Summary: It is not easy to write a review (which should be as objective as possible) for a device one is completely thrilled by...Edit:
However, I will try.
I`ve been using for several years now HTC devices (currently the One X, 8x and One) and was always a big fan of the design and build quality. I also really like the Sense interface, because only this completes an Android device in my eyes.
But this one is an awesome smartphone indeed.
Updated on Jul 17, 2013
Let`s start with the external appearance: It`s just incredibly beautiful. If you take it in your hand it immediately comes to a feeling of incredible value and you can see how much was done with attention to detail here. Both colors are incredibly beautiful, but the silver-white version I like more.
The inner values:
All technical data are well known, so I will confine myself to a few essential points.
32GB is plenty and enough for me. For whom this is too little, you should choose the 64GB version or one of the well-known adapters for external storage solutions.
Quickly. Super fast. There is no lagging or stutters. Absolutely nothing. I`m completely thrilled.
- Sound: Awesome. Finally, a device on which you can show a video to a crowd of people.
Updated on Jul 17, 2013- Sense 5:
I mentioned that I`m a Sense fan. The new version enjoys particularly followers of the vanilla version, but because it significantly is less Sense here. Fits to me as a Sense friend, too. Some small negative points: It is a pity that there are fewer home screens and you do not have the old carousel anymore.
Here I was skeptical at first. Meanwhile, I enjoy the fact that all information is available in one place. I find myself, how I increasingly scroll through Blinkfeed to see what`s new. To complain would be only that it is not completely removable, for those who do not want to use Blinkfeed and the (still) missing G+ integration.
Updated on Jul 17, 2013- Battery:
Again: the One sets new standards! The first day, despite constant playing around and setting up the new device, I handed the phone after 17 hours of usage with 32% remaining over to the battery charger ... That says it all. In general, the battery will last in my usage pattern more than 20 hours.
Updated on Jul 17, 2013HTC did a great job here! A real masterpiece!
Buying recommendation? Absolutely!
The Outstanding One
by lumiyer on July 17, 2013
Pros: Design that exude premium look
Dual front speaker - it's awesome!
Zoe + Live Gallery + Video highlights
Battery life that surprisingly good (last through a day with 5+ hours of awake screen)
Cons: Less details in camera shot

Summary: I usually never had the urge to give an opinion / review of a smartphone but for the HTC One, I just felt I had to because this phone is more than I ever expected before..
I had this phone for about 2 months and until now I have no complaints whatsoever on this phones, yes it's not a perfect phone but still it delivers the best experience of a smartphone in my opinion.
I really love how Zoe, its Live Gallery and its Video Highlights compliment each other and gives me a whole different experience of enjoying moments that I have captured.
The dual front speaker? -- I'm amazed, this simple thing makes a huge differences on how I enjoy media in my phone..
Those two features alone could have made me fascinated with the HTC One.. But the thing is this phone still have so much more to offer! Blinkfeed is beautiful and I love it being as my main home screen, I even restrain myself from using a launcher because I still want Blinkfeed in my home screen.. Also SenseTV, it's actually a simple feature, but again, I found myself checking and setting up a reminder of my favorite show on my phone rather than using the original EPG option.. It's just so much simpler..
I could go on and on about things that I love on my HTC One.. But believe me, you just have to try it yourself.
For me this the best phone of 2013 :)
Why is no one mentioning the DEATH GRIP?!
by sickofcorporatelies on July 16, 2013
Pros: Display is PHENOMS!
Sound is killer - loud, clear, rich bass
Download and install speeds from Play Store annihilated that of my droid charge
Cons: See the summary

Summary: OK. While this phone does have amazing video display with much more natural colors and better contrast than any other phone I've seen, there are 3 HUGE negatives which made it unusable for me.Sorry people, the second #1 should have been a #2 up there. My fault.
#1 - Power button on top is SUCH a pain in the ***. I might have gotten used to it, but never had time to try b/c of #2 and #3.
#1 - 4G signal kept cutting down to 3G or NO data signal at all. This COULD have been due to Sprint's network and not the phone, but I can't tell because Verizon doesn't have a model for me to try out yet.
#3 - The BIG ONE. I don't know why it's not bigger news, but this phone definitely has a DEATH GRIP issue. If you are right handed, like MOST human beings, you naturally will hold the phone in your left hand, with the left palm cupping the left lower corner of the phone. If you do this when the phone has 4G with full bars, just wait 15 seconds or so, and INSTANTLY, your signal will drop to 1 or 0 bars, PLUS drop to 3G signal. The 3G is SO SLOW too! Put the phone down on the table, don't touch it, and within 60 seconds, your full bars 4G is BACK. This happened EVERY TIME I tried it. It could be Sprint's fault, but UNLIKELY because it seems like the antenna would be the same in the hardware, no matter whose network you're using. Also, I did NOT try it with a case on it to see if it would resolve the issue, but it may have been all that was necessary. I returned the phone b/c of issue #2 anyway, so it didn't matter whether the case helped. Thus, I didn't waste time trying it out.
Does ANYONE have this issue with their HTC One ? If so, let me know which network you use and if a case makes a difference. Thanks.
I'm looking forward to the next gen Iphone (hopefully they'll finally get a 5 inch screen) of the HTC Butterfly S, 4g edition.

Probably the Best Android device out there!!
by genecor on July 16, 2013
Pros: Full metal quality build.
Low Light camera performance.
Full HD Screen.
Cons: Camera resolution might be for everyone.
Two button configuration might throw some people off.
Metal body can get warm to the touch in hot weather.

Summary: The HTC One is a feature rich device that gets a lot right from the start
Industrial Design: Metal Unibody, light & slim profile which really feels like the premium product that it is.
Dual front facing Boomsound speakers with Beats Audio really was a revelation to me. It makes listening to music direct from the phone a joy; its clear and isn't lacking in power which was totally unexpected when I first heard it.So much for thinking it was just a marketing gimmick!
Blinkfeed is a good new & Social media aggregator, and the Full HD screen makes watching videos a joy, and reading text a breeze. Using the latest Sense software is a lag-free experience thanks to the Quad-core processor, 2GB Ram and good integration done.
The Ultrapixel camera excels in low light and in the right hands, performs quite well in almost all other situations as well. Yes, it can overexpose if you're not careful, but that can be worked around with proper click to focus use, which also adjusts the exposure accordingly. But more importantly, is HTC Zoe & Video Highlights. Would you miss the resolution in some cases, perhaps. But this camera is more than capable of meeting 90 of a typical users' needs.
One feature that isn't too talked about is the optical stabilisation which benefits both photo taking & video. The ability to shoot at 60 FPS, slow motion mode, and also Full HDR video which would be interesting for those who're so creatively inclined.
The IR-blaster was something else that I wasn't sure about at first. Gimmicky? in some ways, yes, but with Sense TV, you do have a Smart Remote with TV guide in your phone now. Found it useful at home and in public areas when testing its usage and range (decent line-of-sight range on it!)
So if you're looking for the best Android device out there, you can hardly go wrong with the superb HTC One!
Probably the best Android phone Out There,

Summary: The One is a phone that just captures the imagination before you even turn it on, the sleek design is something that makes it stand out. In the hand, it is solid, and unusually light, in fact it takes a bit of getting used to. It is thinner and lighter than most other phones I have had before.
There were features about the construction of the One that drew me to it, all metal, a high resolution, large screen, and sound quality from the onboad speaker design. The camera was a bit of a punt for me but prior to the availability of the phone there were plenty of comparisons to help with the decision of getting the phone.
AFter that though the camera has proven to be the feature of the phone that I most use and enjoy, wit the help of editing software as well. The One comes with great custom software and features built in, Boomsound makes it an entertainment device, The HTC skin for Android, Sense 5, is really intuitive, and for the most part the phone works out of the box.
Mostly though, you cannot beat the power, with a quad core processor and 2 gb of ram the phone never lags, and processes all of the things that I have thrown at it.
The One for me has been an encounter in the unfamiliar, having used Windows Phone for a long time, it is nice to see Android running on hardware that can handle it.
This is the best phone ever!!
by sr1ks on July 11, 2013
Pros: 1080p Screen,
Full Metal Design of the phone.
Excellent build quality
Sense 5 is a leap over other custom skins
Cons: The Red version launched after i got my silver one ::(

Summary: Firstly let me describe the look and feel of the phone, its perfect..The aluminium gives you the premium feeling which no other phone can deliver. The unibody construction does deliver what it promises without any gaps. The curved back allows you to hold the phone without slipping and it feels great int he hand. When you hold the phone first time, you realize how light it feels for a phone made from metal completely. A lot has been said about the build quality on the internet, but once you hold it you have to agree there is lot more that you cant really express.
The screen quality is great, it has great viewing angles and infact the highest ppi in the market now :) so this is the best mobile screen period. The sound quality from the boomsound speakers just add to the screen in helping you consume mobile content better. These are the loudest speakers ever on the phone (Loudest but still crystal clear). The HTC One has two speakers on the front (Yes the front of the phone), I wonder why no one has thought about this before but kudos to HTC for this. The HTC One phone along with its screen and the speakers takes your mobile viewing experience to a newer level. Just to add to this the power button doubles as an IR blaster, with HTC SenseTV software this can be used to control any TV and Set top box.
HTC One ships with a new version of Sense. Sense 5 has been built from scratch and it shows, no lags whatsoever in the app drawer or anywhere else. There are quite a number of new features namely Blinkfeed, Zoe, The new music player. Blinkfeed is htc's take on a news aggregator it stays on your home screen(you can move it to secondary home screen if its not your thing) So far i love it.. show me the news without opening any apps and seemed to consume less battery than most other news aggregators(Flipboard, pulse etc). Sense 5 allows you to have folders on your appdrawer which makes it quite easy to organise ur apps
The ultrapixel camera itself has a lot of useful features.The camera peforms quite well is daylight and night. Zoe is a great idea that has been implemented even better. Zoe allows you capture a capture upto 20 secs in a 3 sec period. just delete those photo bombers in the background, also adding a plethora of other features while editing like sequence shot(compiling an image from a sequence of images), Always Smile(edit a such that everyone is smiling), Object removal(get rid of those photo bombers) and a lot more. The 30 Sec video highlights make taking pictures more fun.
In terms of battery life, HTC One last me a day without worrying to look for an outlet to plug in. My typical day includes music(Bluetooth) while on the train to work, phone calls from around an hour(On Bluetooth) and so, lots of whatsapp, if that sounds like your typical day usage, and the ocassional browsing of my feed readers, xda, and also gaming here and there ;) You can be sure the HTC One will definately suffice your needs.
End of the day its a phone and whats more important than making that phone call and being able to hear what others say to us. HTC One has SenseVoice which allows for crystal clear phone call and the dual built in mics which adjust the call sound based on the noise around you.
Overall HTC One is a phone that looks great, feels great and works great!! what more could you want!!
