Rated 5 out of 5Â by mackantos Solid Phone
The moment you hold this phone, its feels solid, something which is missing from a lot of phones. Switching it on, you can immediately notice the sound quality and level is brilliant. The screen is very responsive, and the whole UI is better than previous phones. The camera despite being 4MP, still manages to snap wonderful pictures probably due to HTC's propitiatory technology. Haven't tried ZOE yet, but I am sure it will amaze me too. Overall, finally this phone feels like a real phone from every aspect one can think of. Got this phone today so can't really say much more, I will use it for a week and then post my view on it, but anyway great job HTC!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mackantos HTC One SIM Error
It seems there is a design flaw, people all over the world are facing the SIM error problem. The solution is to stick 2 layers of sticky tape on top of the sim, so it acts like a layer to make sure it doesn't move around. HTC you really need to look into this, I mean who wants to use sticky tape on their new phone?

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 a serious piece of gear, never before have I had a phone that was complete from when I turned it on. I have not needed to install a single app as everything I need is there plus some. Whats not to like!!! The sound is unreel, the intuitive layout is superb, seriously worth checking out ZOE as it is even better then the hype makes it seem. HTC after the One X and the lag I was hesitant to get another, I am so happy that I went again as this is superb.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Nick Stunning industrial design.
I've gone from the HTC HD2 to the Samsung Galaxy S2 to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus to the Nexus 4. The HTC One is easily the best in terms of industrial design and software customisation. The Sense 5 overlay provides just enough additional functionality, while not overwhelming the core OS.
Of all the other phones I've had, this has the best:
- Industrial Design,
- Call Quality, and
One of my favourite uses of my smartphone is to listen to Audio books and podcasts. The sound quality from the external dual speakers is extraordinary. I no longer need to carry around a separate speaker.
Well done HTC, this device deserves to be the best phone of 2013, and possibly the best phone ever!
The only gripe I have is the battery life - to get through a full day - I need to charge it at least once during the day. It would have been great if HTC had made the phone 5" and squeezed in a 2700 or even a 3000 mAh battery. If I know I'm going to be away from power for an extended period, I need to turn off mobile data to conserve power....

HTC ONE is the best phone you could ever want, with its boomsound (It sounds like they are just making that up to make more people buy it but it is actually really good). It's a bit different to the other HTC's but the change is worth it. I had an iPhone 4S before and I was going to upgrade to an iPhone 5, that is until the HTC ONE came out so I decided to try it, just for a change. It was so worth it. The smoothness of the screen, Look and Feel, Camera, Boomsound. It's the best! If you want to get a new phone, I recommend the HTC ONE, don't waste your money on the iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy 4S, when you have the choice of a HTC ONE.

Absolutely fantastic phone. I traded up from a Galaxy S3 4G and this blows it out of the water in every way. This is the iPhone 5 of android: Finally a phone that doesn't skimp on build quality! I still pick the phone up from time to time just to admire its perfect design.
Couldn't recommend highly enough!

Rated 5 out of 5Â 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.

I had been researching phones for a few months as I wanted to purchase a phone with a bigger screen size (from my much enjoyed htc Desire S). I had my heart set on the Samsung S4 however decided that the slightly smaller screen size of the HTC One would feel better in my hand. Not only that but everything about the phone reeks of quality. I've had it for a couple if weeks now and really enjoying it. Love the screen resolution/clarity and really pleased with the battery performance. I definitely recommend this phone.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AAHK The best flagship out there.
Well, this is my first time using a HTC flagship, and I can tell you, it's really in its own league. The screen was very sharp, great for photos, and the camera was excellent in low-light shots. The sound system was my top personal concern when buying the phone, as I'm a fan of music, and the Beats Audio+Frontal Speaker combination really worked out great. The battery could've been larger, but it didn't really matter as it was enough for me to go through the day. The build quality and design is simply the best there is, beating the Sony XZ and the Nexus 4. A very good phone to use and live with.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by rglee98 HTC One - must buy!
This review will be in six sections: camera, sound quality, screen, ease of use, battery life, and look and feel.
So, let's start with camera. Where to begin? Simply put, this camera with its Ultrapixel technology is one of the best smartphone cameras on the market for low lighting conditions. The 4MP Ultrapixel sensor can pick up more light than normal smartphone cameras, so the pictures will show up better in low lighting conditions. The same also goes for video; it's nice being able to take video where you can actually see something in places that are quite dark rather than having sound and pitch blackness.
As for sound quality, the HTC Boomsound front facing speakers are awesome. I don't need to plug in headphones/speakers for clear sound anymore. These are the best built-in smartphone speakers on the market. The stereo sound is crisp and clear. The sound isn't tinny like other phones either; it is a rich sound with depth. It is quite useful for sharing YouTube videos with friends.
The 1080p, 4.7 inch screen is absolutely amazing. You can look at it from pretty much any angle. Again, like the speakers, this is good for sharing content with friends from your phone. You don't need to have everyone looking at the phone straight on; anyone at any angle can see whatever picture or video you are showing off. The colors are very realistic as well, making it great for watching videos and such.
Sense 5 has greatly simplified the Android experience. It is incredibly ease to use, and all the features have help screens when you first use them to help you get set up. It is very straight forward. Blinkfeed lets you get your news and social feeds right on your homescreen, which eliminates the need of going to the Play Store to get a news app. Sense TV walks you through setting up your home theater remote on your phone, and the interface is intuitive: tap the thumbnail of a TV program and it will show up on your TV screen. Even the camera interface is easy to use: switching from the front to the rear camera and vice-versa only requires a swipe on the screen.
On battery life, the phone can easily last a day with moderate usage. This includes a lot of Whatsapp and Facebook usage, a few minutes of phone calls, maybe some light gaming while waiting for a bus or train, and an hour of music over Bluetooth headphones.
The look and feel is the best. The build quality is solid, with the full aluminum body. It feels very premium, and the curved shape of the phone rests perfectly in the palm of your hand.
Overall, the HTC One is the best smartphone you can get right now, and I highly recommend it.

After owning several iPhones, a Galaxy S3, a Galaxy Note and the Atrix 4G, the HTC One is the fastest, most beautiful and by far the best smartphone out there in terms of build quality, performance, display and audio quality from the powerful Boomsound speakers. The Best Smartphone Out There.

I have previously been a Windows Phone user as Android was awful. I had a play with an HTC One in store and fell in love, it solved all the issues I have had previously with Android. I loved it so much, I bought it the next day and after a week, I still look at it lovingly.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by patricio The BEST Phone out there
Ok i dont even know where to start.
overall the product just feels premium to hold. it feels like a million bucks and you just dont wanna put it down.
the features are awesome! I didnt think I would use Blinkfeed as much but I find it to be really useful - all my feeds are there in one place.
Camera is awesome too cant go wrong at night and HTC zoe is like a cherry on top! :)
BOOMSOUND is my fave, the loudness of the speakers is just outstanding. its just like listening to a computer speakers, maybe even better.
Ease of use:
well ive been an HTC user for quite sometime now, Ive had an HTC Sensation, HTC One X, and now HTC One. Sense 5 is really not that hard to use and i'd prefer it than a stock android one. everything is self explanatory.
As mentioned above, it feels like a million bucks. the design and the feel is what makes you want to hold the phone nonstop. Sexiest phone i have ever seen and used.
as usual, it is blazing fast, I have not experienced any lags at all from sense 5 from switching apps, or sliding through homeages, opening apps, etc. (although I have had little lags with heavy games but I guess thats normal for every phone) but HTC One handles it pretty well.
I made this the last because I think there could be some improvement still for the battery. It is a huge improvement from the HTC One X's battery. It DOES last be a full days use. I'll unplug it from charger at 8am with 100% charge and plug it back in with around 5-10% left at 11pm with medium - heavy use. WHICH IS GOOD.
But, occasionally I do get bored at work and start to surf the internet nonstop which is real heavy use. usually after 4 hours of heavy usage with just internet and 3G on, it will go down from 100-50%.
I would say EVERYTHING is PERFECT, apart from Battery life. battery couls still be improved but im happy with it since it does last me a full day. :)

A simply amazing to use phone. While it took me a little while to get used to it's ease of use once you know how is amazing as useful. One small down point is it does demand a lot of data usage for many of it's futures but there are easy settings to control it. A+ phone though defiantly recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by RajiCiscoGuru It was okay
I have been using my One for a few weeks now and I love the design but a few of the features really let it down. My first complaint is the battery life I can barely get 2 hours out of my phone when playing games, where as my Note 2 will get me 5 hours straight. The other complaints are the camera quality it terrible and the phone gets very hot under load and the screen is too small I can barely see anything.

what i hate is the 2 capacitive buttons, still not used to it. the software has alot of quirks like not removing blinkfeed, complicated to adjust the dock, homescreen. i hate the power button location, it is so flush and hard to reach.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by landscapesarebeautiful First htc smartphone
The HTC One is brilliant. There you go that's all you need to know. You also might need to know that the questionable naming of the "Boomsound" speakers are just marketing but trust me, they aren't. They are high quality, very loud, very sharp studio speakers which begs the question, why listen to any other smartphone? The 4 "Ultrapixel" camera is fast at f/2.0 but the sharpness and clarity is just not there in daytime shots due to the low megapixel count. However, in low-light photography, with it's large sensor, this camera is an absolute gem, taking the best low-light shots in any smartphone camera.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by iTimoleagueDuck HTC One is Number One!
The One feels like the first time I held my Sensation, similar in design with a curved back but simply majestic! For a phone of such size it feels amazing that the weight of it is near identical to an office tool that you see every day. It is very easy to get used to! When I opened the box to see the phone my first thought was wow my second was "woah, this sure is cold!" and when I was out in the sun "Getting a bit warm are we now?" As there is no phone like it, it feels amazing to have something so unique and modern. Thanks to the case that came with it I have yet to drop it thankfully but I do think it looks and feels like a solid phone and it would be ok from waste side drops (my waste side anyway). The screen though, it is simply indescribable and a video would do it no justice it is simply amazing, never have I seen such quality in a phone! The sound out of the phone is the best on the market, easily. It is so loud and it beats any laptop that I have used. The camera on it is amazing too. You would think with only 4 UltraPixels that the phone would be very poor but I was very wrong. In a nightclub with low light and it performs like it was 12 in the day outside. The microphone is also superb as it has 2 HDR microphones built into the phone.
