Rated 5 out of 5 Feels and looks like German Engineering
As an electronics engineer design,quality and functionality is essential. The decision to buy the phone was made after picking it up and looking at the screen. The quality and finish of the phone, the display brightness and functionality was obvious from first look. A real pleasure to get away from the plastics of other Android phones or the overbearing restrictions and outdated design by the other iOS. This is truly like a high end German built car, highest quality and lacking of all the bling. On the downside the software function is VERY basic, but that can be overcome with Apps to a degree, but the benefits make up for it. Sound quality is amazing and call clarity is second to none. A couple of minor issues in firmware that will no doubt be updated. Also excellent to have a DEV site to step you through getting root access the right way

This is Ultimate in the mobile phones arena. One delivers everything you ask for. Power, display, battery, everything. And build is just amazing, even redefining the meaning of ''Amazing'.

Absolutely fantastic phone. I've been wanting this since it first got announced in February. Zoe and Blinkfeed are by far my 2 favorite features and the new Sense UI is excellent. It really feels like a sturdy phone and shows that HTC is trying to do something different then incremental upgrades like other companies. Plus it is so easy to swap from an iPhone with the HTC Sync Manager. I got rid of my iPhone 5 for this as this is the better phone easily. It makes Apple and Samsung handsets look like children's toys.
Only drawback with this great phone is the battery. Would have been the perfect phone with a slightly bigger battery.

This Phone is amazing! would defiantly recommend to anyone. Been wanting the phone since i saw it and since released on the 23rd April. Only downside is because of the full metal casing it gets warm really quickly and cold really quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stuart83AU Achingly beautiful
There is simply no other way to describe the HTC One except for - Jaw Droppingly amazing. I have been a long time HTC fan, owning a Desire and a One X - the new One is frankly revolutionary for HTC, this is unlike any other phone I have ever owned.
I had an Iphone 4S for 2 years and thought that design was impressive - but HTC has knocked this one out of the ball park, the phone feels so perfect in the hand with a beautiful cool touch, perfectly balanced and optimal size for the palm of your hand.
The screen is achingly beautiful and the perfect size for me, the colours pop in any light and the way it feels under your fingers is nothing like I have felt before - it is so fluid. Games, Videos, Text - everything just pops off the screen.
By far the most usable feature for me have been the speakers, they are unlike anything I have heard on a phone before - it's an aural experience when playing movies back and it almost feels like surround sound. The camera I am yet to have a proper play with, but from what I have used it for so far - it has performed above expectations.
There is nothing more I can say really. This phone screams quality and beauty, and is by far the best smartphone on the market today.
Thank you for bringing us this amazing device HTC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hadeshorn Do believe the hype. So glad I got this phone.
I have to admit that I have been buying HTC phones since 2010. They work fine for me and I have never had a fault.
Upgraded to the One due to losing my One-x. Lets just say this is a well designed phone.
The front speakers are not hype! They actually sound pretty decent and combine that with the video quality which is HD, its a beautiful match.
A few minor gripes. Its not a gap free product as it might state.. Up the top there is a slight gap but this may be an issue with the first batch in their hurry to get the phone out.
Also the headphones that came with the phone.. Dont sound all that great and probably better to get your own.
Finally I marked down ease of use as its taking me awhile to get used to sense 5 while the Sense on the HTC One-x was instantly familiar.
The body looks amazying and I really cant fault this phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tassy Awesome Phone!
I had an iPhone before this and was really worried about switching to an android ... In case it was too complicated or just not as easy to use... But I have NO regrets AT ALL ... Had this phone for almost a month now and I love everything about it! The battery could be better, but hey? It gets me through an entire day and I just plug it in overnight ! LOVE IT and TOTALLY recommend it!
