Rated 5 out of 5Â by tony2000 Top Class Phone!
It was not hard for me to choose this over Samsumg Galaxy S4, this phone does have everything you need in a phone, and feels like a phone in your hand, the speakers are amazing, camera + gallery is also amazing. this phone is a power house, and is recommended for everyone.
Samsung Galaxy S4 is good too with slightly higher specs but it has unnecessary features and some flaws, ie/ scolling up and down with your eyes good idea but poorly executed. which makes HTC look like the smarter phone to choose.
( They knew Phones do not need that kind of tech )
some may say Samsung is a better brand, but HTC know what they are doing, and know how to make a great phone.
please note in most phone selling websites, This phone is put down as 4 mega pixel. It uses ULTRA PIXEL!!
NOT! Mega pixel. this needs to be made more clear for people looking to upgrade. i can imagine a lot of customers are underestimating this Phones Camera.
Ultra pixel is the upgrade of Mega pixel!

Upon recieving my one i believe this phone is unbelievable once you open the box you notice the differance as soon as you pick it up the contours and design is awesome it fits so snugly in your hand for such a big phone(4.7 screen
Once you fit the sim into the phone the setup is easy and within five minutes your into your account and the msin screen,the screen is so bright and responsive to your touch
Sense 5 as some brillaint innovations
Blinkfeed is a unique app like flipboard you will love it or hate it but i like for the current news or sport,technology or your socail sites are included.at the time and its expanding and refreshes about every hour
Boomsound is loud and will be loved by music lovers it's easy to use with front facing speakers
Camera zoe is a brillaint innovation which everyone will want to use with zoe share for the brillaint times you want to share witheveryone on socail sites the concept is differant
With it running jelly bean 4.1.2 and sense 5 overlay.the operation of the one runs smoothly and turning from blibkfeed to mainscreen it just melts so nicely into wallpaper of main screen
The battery is good and i can get a day and more out of the one charge with a battery saver option built into sense5

My company forced me to change from HTC to Samsung due to an email setup, the built-in email client does not work on HTC while it do work on Samsung, I used to have HTC one X, and before Sensation XE, and sensation, Desire HD2 HD Diamond, and my first was PDA2K (blue angel), simple problem Samsun does not search within the name in contact from the main key pad, while HTC do. best software ever, best material best phone .... excellent Job HTC keep the hard work.
any plan to make one with 5.5 or higher inch screen? would really love to see it, my previous company used Shift. amazing how it runs windows Vista :-) .... cheers

Very impressed with this phone. Starting with the very few cons I've found; can't switch around the personalisable "panels" you can only delete them, Blinkfeed is only good if you're really into social networking and only have Facebook "friends" who you actually know (big problem for me, a lot of rubbish comes up when I use Blinkfeed with Facebook), photos are the same (other people's Facebook photos appear in your gallery), no quick settings option when you pull down the top screen, and battery isn't brilliant (though I didn't expect it would be to be honest).
The pros are far to great to even list. Brilliant phone with amazing features, great looking too. Camera will blow your mind, as will the video functions. All the settings are really clear and easy to understand/use.
I expected a lot and this exceeded everything I could have hoped for.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Abid6814 Phone of the Year
The HTC One was a phone worth waiting for and the perfect choice for my annual conundrum of which phone to upgrade to which has become my favourite annual tech ritual.
First impressions last and the HTC One is a definite head turner. The full aluminium body is simply gorgeous. The handset looks stunning, feels excellent in the hand and you instantly know you are holding a high quality handset that was built with the best materials available with no shortcuts taken.
When you switch the HTC One on you quickly realise that HTC has put as much thought into the inside of the device and the user experience as they have in the build, design and structure of the handset. The display is full HD and offers one of the best visual experiences I've ever encountered on a mobile. Watching HD movie trailers is an absolute joy and not only do you get an amazing picture quality you are introduced to HTC's new innovation of BoomSound.
Boomsound is such an obvious feature you have to ask why no one has ever introduced it on a handset before. Simply put you now have full stereo dual speakers on the front of the phone that lets you enjoy audio the way it was meant to. The great thing about BoomSound is that it not only works brilliantly when consuming video and music content it also transforms the quality of phone calls particularly in noisy environments. Call quality is clear particularly when you have lots of background noise going on.
Much has been said of the new HTC Ultra Pixel camera technology. The HTC one takes great photos, I'm not in a position to say if its the best camera in the world, but what I can say is that HTC has outshone its rivals with the software that accompanies the camera. HTC Zoe has made me fall in love with taking photos and videos all over again. Object delete, Sequence Shots and 30 second video highlights are all part of the fun. These features have impressed everyone I've introduced to the phone and people love what you can do with the camera.
HTC Sense has gone on a calorie controlled diet and the new version is lean, fast and looks stunning. BlinkFeed was a feature I was slightly dubious about and I wondered if I would ever use it. Having configured my settings I know have a BlinkFeed setting to match my every mood. Its a great way of getting the news you want from sources you may not have known about. It is the perfect companion for a journey when you want to know what is happening in the world around you quickly and effortlessly.
Battery life has always been a bug bear of mine and if I am honest some of my previous HTC handsets have not been able to match my power consumption. The HTC One battery life handles everything you throw at it. I can use the device intensively and still have 20% battery life left after 14 hours plus of frequent use. On more moderate usage it is easy to get 20 hours plus and still have nearly 40% battery life left. HTC has built in some great power saving functions that don't compromise the quality of the experience but do let you extend the battery life.
The HTC One is a great allrounder. It is easily the most feature rich handset on the market today. You get a great camera, unrivalled sound and audio quality and a superfast handset that can fly through the most intensive application challenges. It is powered by an excellent battery and is the most beautiful handset in the market today.
The HTC One is definitely the ONE phone you would want and I have no hesitation in recommending it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sebianoti Could this be your next One?
HTC One was announced in February and from the first sight i knew this was my next phone. In my honest humble opinion there isn't a better phone on the market today. It's made of an aluminium slab, carefully crafted so it fits the palm of your hand naturally. The quality of the HTC One is as premium as phones get, and I thought they couldn't get any better after the HTC One X. HTC Sense 5 includes a number of really useful apps such as HTC Sense TV which is your universal TV remote thanks to the IR blaster in the power button, as well as being your universal remote it will also recommend TV shows based on your interests. Blinkfeed is something you love or hate, but i love it, brings me the latest news all the time, being kept in the loop has never been easier.
June 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5Â by ChrisJoyce Every now and then a new phone comes out that really makes a stir, placing the new user in a state of pure bliss, is the HTC ONE that phone?
HTC ONE: Design
Ok well letâ€™s start with the design: HTC have thrown away the plastic with the ONE and gone all out to produce something very special. The main body is constructed from crafted aluminium and wow when you hold it, it feels premium in your hands. The rear is curved to fit snuggly in your hand, you then turn the phone over and immediately your eye is attracted to the almost symmetrical design. Which hosts two stereo speakers either side of the screen, yes you heard it correct, a phone that features speakers facing the user for a change! I must also point out that HTC have kept to the idea of no user replaceable battery and no memory card slot, but so far I have not found this limiting in any way. You next look at the ONEâ€™s screen, this is 4.7â€� across, featuring a full 1080p Super LCD 3 display. The HTC ONE features two navigation buttons Home and Back, which are lit-up with a blue backlight.
HTC ONE: BoomSound
The first thing you notice when switching this phone on is the HTC greeting melody through the front stereo speakers featuring an internal amplifier and wow this phone really wants to make its presence known, the sound is simply mind blowing for a phone. Playing games or listening to music is simply so much more immersive than any other phone I have ever tried, you just become so much more engaged with what you are doing. I have to say I am not a fan of â€˜Beats Audioâ€™, which most people will know is just an EQ curve that flatters the lows and highs, sacrificing the details in the mid-tones. But when using the front speakers with Beats on which is basically Boom Sound the partnership works very well. My own preference is still to turn Beats off when listen through headphones or connecting to an external hifi system to retain the purity of the music, plus your choice of headphones makes a huge impact on the overall sound quality, so my advice would be by the best you can.
HTC ONE: Display
Next on to the LCD screen, your eyes just get sucked in by that 1080p magic and wow the screen is beautiful and the colours seem vivid and accurate. To me the only way to make this even better would be a 5â€� screen, but I understand that could be a little large for some users. As an added note I also noticed that the screen seems very resistant to finger marks, which I think is well handy.
HTC ONE: Blinkfeed
Once the phone has booted up you are presented with HTCâ€™s new Sense 5 and the first page you will see is the Blinkfeed homepage. At first I was dubious as to whether I would find the concept of having all my social feeds and news threads there in one place useful. But my mind has changed this is such a great feature keeping you up to date with the latest news that interests you from Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and you can also select news channels, technology, music and so much more. Blinkfeed is in its infancy and it will certainly be very interesting to see how it develops in the future. Just as a note you can select another page and make it the home screen the choice is yours, but you cannot at present disable Blinkfeed, but then who would want to its excellent and works very efficiently alongside the new de-cluttered Sense 5.
HTC ONE: Camera
HTC have focused bravely on a philosophy of fewer pixels is more and the ONE features an Ultrapixel sensor rated at 4MP. This adds up to a sensor that is cable of gathering three times more light, when combined with the fast F2.0 lens. So how does the theory work in practice? Well I have to sadly say this is the only area of the HTC ONE that seems to underperform and as photographer I was hoping for a big improvement over my previous phone the HTC ONE X. After close examination of many images, the HTC ONEâ€™s camera seems to very easily overexpose, blowing out white highlights. The only way I have found around this is to use the HDR function, which works very well with stationery subjects, as HDR works by taking duplicate images and then combining them to extend the dynamic range. I am hoping that HTC will release a future software update that will correct this problem in the near future and that will also address some hit and miss focusing I have noticed on many occasions.
Next on to the resolution 4MP at 2688 x 1520, when viewing your images on the phones LCD screen you are unaware of the 4MP limitation and photos look great. But when viewing your images on a larger screen the limited resolution very quickly shows, as there is no scope for zooming in to your images and if like me you edit using Photoshop youâ€™re cropping will be very limited to. On a positive the HTC ONEâ€™s camera produces very good colour, has an amazing HDR function and in low light situations performs better than you could ever imagine for a phone.
HTC ONE: Zoe
The camera software features a new addition called Zoe. This function works by taking a series of 20 photos in a 3 second time frame and when reviewing looks like a standard video. But this feature allows you to do many things, select your favourite images, and combine images together to make one photo, sequence shots, object removal and many other useful additions. Zoe can even recognise elements of a captured image that it thinks are out of place - if an unwanted person wonders in to your shot, it will allow the user to highlight that aspect and scroll to a portion of the image when the interlopers simply weren't there. Zoe is great but, all those images soon eat in to your available memory space, plus the organisation of Zoes could be so much better. At present all the photos are heaped in to the same folder, what would be a nice feature would be to have each Zoe in its own folder keeping things clear and simple. But overall this is a great feature that will provide you with hours of fun.
HTC ONE: Zoe Highlight Video
Next on to the Zoe Highlight Videos, I think most people will agree that we take photos, then move them on to a hard drive and very rarely bother to look at them again, kind of pointless really, just an archive of memories. But this is where this cool function kicks in and I have to say I really love it! A Zoe Highlight Video is 30 seconds in length and plays your photos, Zoes and videos as a slide show, set to music and transitions of your choice, at present there is six styles to choose from. All your images are stored in the gallery by events, so you easily see where your images are. You can create more events and move photos from one to the other. There is a feature in the menu where you can select or deselect images to be included in the highlight video, but at present there seems to be a bug where your selections are ignored and included anyway, letâ€™s hope there is an update to fix this shortly. It would also be nice to be able to choose your own background music and length of the highlight video in the future.
HTC ONE: Performance
What can you say when a phone features a 1.7GHz quad-core processor along with 2GB of RAM you know itâ€™s going to be super-fast and it is, in fact if the ONE could take off it would! Sense 5 is amazingly smooth and so far I have seen no lag with this phone. I suppose the big question has to be, who really needs this amount of power? I donâ€™t think I have one app that can utilise the phones true potential, but there we go itâ€™s sure nice to know youâ€™re holding one of the most powerful phones on Earth!
HTC ONE: Battery
So far the HTC ONEâ€™s battery has been impressive, making it through the day with power to spare and on occasion I have had up to 5hrs of on screen time, but the norm is between 3 â€“ 4hrs. This is a good improvement over its predecessor and making for a much better user experience. As there is no point in having a phone that cannot make it through a typical day.
HTC ONE: The Verdict 4.5/5
Thereâ€™s nothing really to dislike about the HTC ONE, it really is the smartest phone on the Planet at the moment. It is beautifully made and designed by a company that really cares about the ultimate user experience. Other than the few niggles Iâ€™ve pointed out in my review, this phone deserves to out sell the competition in 2013, so onwards and upwards HTC!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mummyofcyrus The Best Phone EVER!!!
This is the best phone you will use right now, standard.
I work at the Carphone Warehouse and I get to play with them all before they even come out and whilst they are having the finishing touches. I loved this phone that much, when i got paid, I bought out my contract to upgrade early and how wonderful a decision that was!
The first thing I noticed was the finished design. The sleek curve of the back and the aluminium finish. It feels so perfect in my hand, and despite the size, it doesn't actually feel as big as it is. It is sturdy and very well built. Doesn't feel like you could snap it in half with the slightest bit of force (unlike the competitors)
When I finally turned it on after admiring the sheer beauty of it, the welcome sound was the cleanest sound I have EVER heard from a phone. It actually made me say WOW! out loud! and that was just for the silly little turning on jingle thing!
Once it was loaded up (which didn't actually take as long as I expected) I only had one thing on my mind, I NEED TO TEST THESE SPEAKERS NOW!!! So I went straight to YouTube! Pulled up a song by Converge (a hardcore metal band with lots of sounds kicking off at the same time) as I thought it would be perfect to check them out, chuck them straight in at the deep end. Boy did they blow me away! Full volume with no distortion, blasting out one of my favorite songs and I was hearing things I never heard on the song before, it was that clear. Perfect! With headphones in, you really don't need to put it on full volume, cause you'd be deaf by the end of the song lol! again amazing quality.
Now to the screen quality, clear, sharp colours and display, my mate didn't even realise I had a screen protector on and all the finger marks from me playing with it! That pretty much blew his mind alone! Not much else I can say on the screen other then spot on, well done HTC!
Now lets talk about the camera. Wow, the camera! I have tried it in every situation I can think of, outside in direct sunlight, outside away from sunlight, low light inside and out, a well lit room, and in a nightclub, and every single photo is brilliant. I took a picture of my mums kitten in low light inside, and you can make out each of the individual hairs on her fur. In the nightclub, my first picture didn't even flash, yet the picture was the same quality as most with a flash in the same situation. So you can imagine the quality when I say the picture with the flash was 10 times better still! Zoe is a great feature, taking 20 pictures and making a 3 second video at the same time, really like that.
Gonna sum up the rest quickly here cause I'm chatting on too much lol. Battery life lasts me all day and a little bit more (but I do charge it at night anyway) and I am constantly using it for music player, internet and playing games. Speed on the internet is very good, equal to all the phones with quad core processors, not had a YouTube video needing to buffer yet either.
Only little thing is that the phone can get quite warm with excessive use, but to be fair, every phone has that problem.
All in all, the only thing I am able to say is, if you want the best phone out there right now, buy the HTC One!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DanielM19 Brilliant Phone!
Well I don't know where to start! I am an Android lover and the thought of switching to iOS scared me, I am so glad I didn't. The pairing of Android and HTC Sense 5 is amazing. The phone looks and feels great, of course the moment it was taken from the box it was put into a protective case, I went for the HTC double dip case and it fits a treat. The screen is razor sharp and colours are shown well. Sound quality is great, you can really feel the bass and can hear the phone from a good distance. The camera works brilliantly and with the addition of HDR video it is excellent. I haven't experienced any lag from the phone when carrying out demanding tasks either. I am very glad that I went for this over the S4 and the Xperia Z. For a phone that has a screen as good as this, and the performance to boot the battery is immense. Has enough juice for a full day for me, as long as you don't make it a very late night. I only see one flaw, and that is the lack of expandable storage, but with a world using cloud storage I think this will be the way forward from now on. This minor flaw takes nothing away from the phone.
Well done HTC, a first class phone! Keep it up!

I just upgraded from an old iPod touch and the Orange San Francisco II that was getting old and slow and this is phenomenally better. I was surprised by the astoundingly good speakers and the larger screen has made me a complete hardware snob! I love the amazing speed and ease of multitasking as well as the BlinkFeed which I use multiple times every day. Whilst the lack of menu button is odd, the massive screen leaves sufficient space for the permanent menu button in a lot of the apps. Ultimately, this phone is magnificent and certainly beats the likes of the iPhone which is all cost and no features (siri is not what I thought it would be).

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AndroidFanboy HTC One is the world's best smartphone
I have moved from a Sony Ericsson Xperia Play to the HTC One about two months ago from now. I was allowed an expensive phone as it was my 13th birthday.
At first I thought the HTC One is going to be a rubbish and a commercially unsuccessful phone like last year's One X and that Samsung's Galaxy S4 is way better mainly because of its really cool features like Air View.
However, since I'm a techy Android fanboy, I looked at reviews for both, but I still wanted the Galaxy S4 really badly. My dad said it was too much and he had told me to get the One instead. I eventually agreed to him and had opted for the One. At first, I was upset that I didn't get all the cool features the S4 had, but after a few weeks, I realised the One is tons better than the S4, after TechRadar placed the One as 2013's best phone, mainly because Samsung's cool features and bloatware are useless and can sometimes do things by accidental gestures.
Firstly, the build quality on the One leaves the S4 in the dust. To be honest, it is more like work of art than an actual smartphone. The aluminium unibody is drop-dead gorgeous and beautiful, it made my friends' old BlackBerry Curves look cheap and plasticky and fellows who use iPhones look jealous. Plus that curved back makes the One an absolute joy to hold.
HTC nailed it in terms of weight. 147g is not too heavy like the Lumia 920 or too light like the iPhone 5. I mean, the phone is a phone, not a brick or a piece of paper. Secondly, the screen is the perfect size, making the iPhone a kid's toy, alongside having a beautiful Full 1080p HD resolution and excellent graphics.
The BoomSound speaker system coupled with Beats Audio blew me away! I never knew a phone could sound like a portable speaker. I can hear every detail, since they are dual front facing speakers, plus the sound quality is never tinny. The bass is very prominent as well, plus treble is perfectly balanced into the mix.
Even though I am not a photographer, the UltraPixel camera may need a bit of improvement. It does lack the beautiful colours which the cameras of the S4 and iPhone 5 have, plus pictures can be a bit noisy, but they are good enough for me. However, night-time shots are amazing and bright. Keep this up HTC as Nokia are biting into your territory in the low light camera factor.
The Sense 5 UI is great. Its redesigned to perfection, and it works very well with the hardware. It leaves Samsung's laggy TouchWiz and the boring iOS in HTC's wake. However, it can take a bit of time getting used to, but all in all, well done on the software HTC. Just make sure you bring those Android and Sense updates regularly, which you have obviously failed in last year.
Battery life did feel short. It's nowhere near terrible, but it does need improvement. Plus the power saver mode isn't effective enough.
The sheer speed of the phone is a big plus. It works nearly just as smooth as an iOS device. It can handle heavy gaming and multitasking well, which isn't very common on Android devices, so great job there aswell HTC.
However, it can be hard to reach the power button, but it's not a big issue, plus it needs to be there as it doubles up as an IR blaster, which is very useful for controlling TVs. I must say that the One has the sexiest volume rocker ever! It blends in to the phone, and it is extremely well built, unlike the Galaxy S4's cheap one. However, you guys at HTC should have included a menu key. If it is on last year's One X, Butterfly/DROID DNA and this year's Butterfly S, why isn't it on the One? It isn't a big problem for me, but it is useful and it seems it is a problem for some HTC One users.
Overall, this is indeed the world's best smartphone and I would indeed recommend it, especially to:
Samsung Galaxy S2/S3 users and iPhone users
It's a real shame the S4 and the iPhone 5 are more popular, just because of the name, but they do not know what they are missing.

i've had the phone for two days and i've been addicted to it to be frank . i thought it was absolutely perfect but listening to music was sometimes irritating because they used incorrect album covers for the picture to go with the music . also, it fell out if my pocket once (by accident) from a height of about 15 inches from tiled flooring with no case and now there are dents/chippings on each corner of the phone . my point being the phone is clearly very fragile and large . whereas my last htc could cope when i dropped it on concrete and fit in my pocket without sticking out !! other than those points .. the phone is definately one if the best phones on the market .

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Craigm82 Nothing else compares
First of all if you are considering upgrading to this phone and aren't sure yet I urge you to go try it! Once you hold it your mind will be made up. It is simply beautiful and the build quality is stunning. It's more like a piece of jewellery than a phone.
The screen is simply the best screen on any phone available, period.
Performance is breathtaking. At no point have I ever experienced any lag whatsoever.
Sound, what can I say? Htc call it boomsound and it really does what it says on the tin. I was genuinely shocked when I first heard it. It is LOUD, clear and the base is great which is helped by the beats audio.
The camera is amazing too. It's low light performance is stunning and can actually see better in the dark than I can. The camera also has a ZOE feature which animates your gallery and stitches your photos and ZOE's which are micro videos together making great little memories. Fantastic if you have young children as it's a great way to save family moments.
I can highly recommend this phone, I absolutely love it!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MikeH Fantastic features, great battery life
Since I got my HTC One, I have been extremely pleased with all aspects of the handset. The shape of the phone is perfect and sits nicely in the hand. Being right-handed, I am happy the power button has now been moved to the left like the HTC handsets of 3 years ago and before. The screen quality is amazing, inside or out. I have only had trouble seeing the screen once, in absolute direct sunlight and using the camera. Otherwise it has always been fine (I have auto-brightness so that may have dimmed the display). The features are good, from BlinkFeed to the camera options. HTC Zoe is great, you get 3 seconds of video and 20 images, so you can always get a "best shot". The speakers are front-facing and very good quality. The battery for me lasts just over a day, and I am a heavy user of social media, it is my in-car music system as well, playing songs over Bluetooth.

The HTC One is a really good phone which has a crystal clear display, great camera, great speakers and it looks fantastic. It is also has lag free performance. The battery just about gets me through the day, however, so I wish it was a bit bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 Switched from an iPhone, then the S4 to this - and this is far far better!
I lost my iPhone and was worried about switching to Android, but took up my carrier's suggestion of trying the S4 for a week and switching to the iPhone again if it didn't work out. While I was doing that, I saw the HTC one on offer. So right now, I've got the S4 and HTC one side by side, and it's really no competition: the HTC one is a much easier and smoother transition from an IPhone, it's a better looking piece of kit, and just 'works'. Was amazed to see that the TV remote/guide thing set itself up easily to work with my Samsung TV and Virgin Media DVR. That's even more seamless than Apple.
I get the impression that if you're a sophisticated user, the Samsung S4 might be a better bet. It's easier to get deep into the settings and customise. I'll also miss S-Health. I also think the S4 camera is a bit better in daylight, but I only use the phone camera except when out and about at night where the HTC one was a little better. Overall, if you're looking to migrate from an iPhone, and want something as easy to use and perhaps a bit prettier, this has to be the one to go for.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by StingraysRhys HTC One - The phone which changes everything
I've used my HTC One for a few months now, and absolutely love it. At first I debated buying one or not as I was already mid-way through my contract, but I went for it and haven't looked back.
The design is stunning. Clearly the best designed phone ever produced, with an excellent feel in your hand.
Easy to set up, it makes it a great phone for all ages in my opinion, with hardware and software which goes hand in hand to create a fantastic mobile experience.
Give it a go - you won't regret it.
