Rated 5 out of 5Â by JonboyC Everything I hoped it would be!
I'm a bit of a phone nut and I also work for one of the major carriers. My previous device is a Note 2, but I simply couldn't resist buying the One when it came out. Having previously been an HTC fan before buying the Note 2, I was hoping this device would be as stunning as I thought it would be. It absolutely hasn't disappointed me one single bit. The display is stunning, the forward facing speakers are several notches above anything else on the market and the body design is second to none. My only drawback, and it's just a little tiny one, is the two button design and some little software things. Not a huge Blink Feed fan and it takes some getting used to 2 buttons. I'm sure I'll get used to it in no time. Kudos to HTC on a truly wonderful and innovative phone. I can't wait to see what's next.

When HTC introduced the "Diamond" I wanted one; ended up getting the "Pure" and I liked it. Moved up to HTC's "Inspire" excellent phone keeping it for my spare phone.. Totally blown away by my HTC ONE (2013) Love the dual front speakers, the display is the BEST, period! Takes excellent photos with fewer mgs brilliant and well thought out camera. I hope to have this phone for years to come. Thanks! HTC!!

Upgraded from an iPhone, skipped the i5 because I heard this was coming, and boy am I glad I did!! This puppy will smoke the competition on speed and smooth operation. It handles all apps without problems and loads quickly. Have yet had any lockups or crashes of any kind. Then there is it's audio! As a studio musician, I am impressed by how good this sounds too! Simply incredible device!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by IDRHOME Disappointed in the O/S
The phone itself is great. It is easy to use, and the resolution is great. However there are some noticeable issues with this phone. For starters it does not play Flash Media, so you can't use apps such as the MLB of NFL packages. Additionally for those of you who own a business that requires you to receive voice-mail over e-mail beware! This phone is not capable of playing the wav file format. Microsoft has been promising an update for this for almost a year now and has not delivered. Very disappointing especially since Microsoft invented the wav format. You will also notice that there are a limited amount of applications available for use on the phone, but I am sure this will change over time. My rating would be much lower, however the options to rate this phone do not include functionality, and based on the limited options for review I do not have complains, but my actual rating overall for this phone would be about 2 stars, especially since I really need voicemail to e-mail for business, and flash to watch training videos when I am traveling out of town by train or bus.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ecuwiumiu The Best Android phone yet!
HTC ONE is the best for screen resolution and having more ppi than other two phones, but still all of them are not too bad as other people think, but HTC ONE is newest. HTC ONE has a great quality of design for built front stereo dual sound. That makes you will hear music, video streaming and so on your sounds come toward to you. So you can hear really clear sound than before and best yet. HTC ONE has some new features like camera and blankflip like every one talks about it. I found some fun feature when you want to check like â€œwhat time is it now?â€� you can take a look at corner of screen, but it can take a look at what date today is. You just hold on clock place on the screen and actually it slide down and show minimum information for us.right now, I can say I would like to use my best phone is HTC ONE. Also, I would like to recommend this device to my friends!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TheKidIvan23 HTC knocked it out of the park with this one
Now before i start reviewing the, i just want to point out that i used to own an htc aria, samsung galaxy s2, and the htc one x.
All these phones were great, but my favorite one was the Samsung galaxy s2. The htc one x was also a good phone, but it just didn't amaze me... But the new htc one, has overwhelmed me with its awesomeness. First, I am going to talk about the design on this phone, the design on this phone is just amazing, i just cant believe this phone only cost me $250. The phone honestly feels like a $400 contract phone. You guys get the point, this phone just feels like what its worth. Better then plastic.
Second, the screen
The screen on this phone is just amazing to look at, i mean i find myself turning on the screen of the phone, just to look at it. The colors on the screen look so vibrant, accurate, and rich. Images and videos also look very crisp and clear, i can say this is the best screen i have ever used on a mobile device yet. Out door visibility also is good, not great but it gets the job done.
Third, the speakers
What can i say, HTC went all the way with this one. Front speakers just make so much sense, especially when your watching videos with your friends. Now this isn't the first time htc does this, i mean remember the htc surround that was a windows phone? Well that was the first (I think) smartphone to have frontal speakers. But the reason why the htc one's speakers are so amazing is because it isn't a gimmick and actually works unlike the htc surround's speakers. The htc one's speakers, are loud, clear, and they don't distort when your playing sound on full volume. Again best speaker i have ever used on a smartphone.
Fourth, the camera
Now a lot of people think that just because the htc one has a 4 ultra pixel camera instead of an ordinary 13 megapixel camera, people think that the htc one's camera isn't good. Well those people haven't used the camera on the htc one. The camera is just outstanding, pictures look so rich and clear, its just unbelievable. Low light performance, is also amazing, i have friends telling me to take pictures with my phone, instead of theirs (they have iPhone 5's, 4's, and galaxy s4) Just goes to show what this camera i capable of.
Fifth, sense 5
Now for you people who don't know what sense 5 is, its just the software it runs. Now sense 5 is the best software version ever, the old versions of sense were just so not cool. they were really laggy and heavy. but the new sense 5 gets rid of all that. sense 5 is a lot faster and easier to use, its also less heavy so the phone doesn't lag. i love everything about the new sense 5
Now the HTC One has introduced somethings called, HTC Boom Sound, HTC Zoe, HTC Blink feed, Sense Voice, and Sense TV. These are all features, and what can i say, I fond myself using all the features. Boom Sound gives you beats audio to your speakers, so music can sound so amazing. HTC Zoe brings your photos to life and gives you some cool editing features like, Object removal, action shot, always smile, and more. Blink feed isn't one of my favorites, but i still find myself using quite often, just to keep in touch with the world and my tech stuff. Sense Voice, gives you HDR voice calling so all your calls are going to hear loud, crisp, and clear. Last but not least, sense TV. Now this gives you a remote control/TV guide in your palm of your hands, I use this mostly everyday and it helps me watching something when there isn't really much to watch (keep in my mind sense TV only works if you have a TV and a cable/satellite box.
Now HTC is known for bad battery life, but the htc one changes that, not by much but it changes it. I've found my self unplugging my phone from 7 am and plugging it back in to 12 am with 14% of battery life. Keep mind battery life varies on how good you can manage it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by cbadner Most excellent phone ever!
I loved my old HTC Inspire (Desire), so I've been waiting for a while for HTC to come out with something really special. When I heard about the HTC One a couple months ago, and that it was supposed to be a highly polished premium design , I waited in anticipation to learn more, and started watching all the news releases and reviews. Even though I had a health emergency in April and needed surgery, I still kept up to date with all the news and reviews about this phone, even from my hospital bed. It looked like the specs were excellent and the reviews were great, so I decided that the HTC One was the phone for me. I finally got mine last week and really love it. I was really nervous that it wouldn't meet my expectations after all the waiting, but it does, and keeps amazing me. Of course, the construction is beautiful and the look and feel is excellent. In fact, I actually hate to get a case for it, it feels so good. The display is outstanding. I always liked my old HTC display better than the competition, but this one is absolutely stunning. Beautiful color balance, contrast and brightness (low enough in a dark room, and bright enough outside). Even my wife was shocked, and she's seldom impressed with tech gadgets. The sound through the external speakers actually is really amazing for such a small device. Even though I read positive reviews about the speakers up front, I was very surprised when I actually heard it. The sound is crisp, clear and full for listening without headphones. Nice stereo separation also. I haven't had a chance to really test out the camera totally yet, but so far it seems to work really well in various lighting, though the images are smaller because they are 4 megapixels, they appear to be sharp and clear and more than enough resolution for snapshots. Combine these things with fast processor performance and a nicely tweaked UI (HTC Sense 5.0) and this is a really nice premium device. I am totally happy with my purchase.

This phone is so sweet. coming from a nexus 4 to this is such a nice change. The speakers are so loud, I never miss a message or call.The aluminum body feels like it alone costs $500. Sense 5 is a huge improvement over previous versions & i'm really happy they stuck a lot closer to google's design guidelines. Blinkfeed is great to catch up on my news while on my short breaks at work. & the camera.... Nothing comes close in comarison.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Boundless01 Excellent Performance, Stunning Design, and Fun User Experience at an Unbeatable Price
Although I have heard, seen and read a lot about HTC in the past, this is my first device by the Taiwanese company. While that's the case, I couldn't be more pleased with this handset. Admittedly, the wait for the device (camera part delays) and trade up program issues online were frustrating, but those issues were resolved and the phone itself certainly earns the title of "flagship."
At first glance, the phone has striking good looks and sets itself apart from other devices as I chose the glacial silver color. Upon further examination, the aluminum body, large screen, front speaker grills and slim appearance fortify this first impression. Picking up the One for the first time was a pleasant surprise. It is a solid piece of hardware that's not too heavy, but screams quality when you hold it.
In terms of performance, the phone is snappy and lightning fast. After using the device for weeks now, there have been no issues with lag thanks to the Snapdragon 600. Whether I'm playing games, listening to music, taking snapshots, shooting video, Internet browsing or actually being productive, the HTC One delivers a fast and pleasant experience that keeps up with anything you throw at it. The Sense overlay provides an aesthetically pleasing and clean visual experience that is not too oversaturated like the Samsung Galaxy S4's TouchWiz software. The display itself is beautiful and provides bright whites, deep blacks and vibrant color. I have other Beats Audio devices (laptop, headphones) and this phone offers excellent sound quality. The front speakers provide a nice stereo experience for games, video and music and plugging in headphones or earbuds is even better. The earbuds that come with the phone are of surprisingly good quality as well. Call quality on this phone is great. Audio is clear on the receiving end and everyone I speak with says my voice is crisp when I call. The camera, whether taking snapshots or recording video, is fun to use and performs really well. The HTC Zoe function is yet another highlight of the phone and helps set itself apart from other devices. Storage space is generous even after system files are taken into consideration. With the added benefit of 25GB of Dropbox space (free for 2 years), there is plenty of room for apps, media, and documents.
In short, you can't go wrong with this phone. It looks and feels great, performs extremely well and is a lot of fun to use. The overall user experience is top shelf. When you combine the trade up program and Dropbox space with the beauty and brawn of the handset, the decision is simple. Ignore the plasticky gimmicks, gargantuan advertising efforts, and overall hype of Samsung's Galaxy S4 and become one with HTC's One.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Homeyjo LOVE my phone!!
I absolutely love my One. Switched from iPhone a while ago because in order to truly make it mine, it had to be jailbroken. Not so with Androids, and HTC has even made it easier to customize and even develop for Android if you want! The ONLY complaint I have about my phone, the One, is the Home and Back buttons could have been a tiny bit larger. Other than that, this is a phone that will last me every bit of my two year contract, maybe even PLUS some!!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Cyathea Excellent Phone, needs software improvements.
I'm just gonna go straight to the cons (even though some are pretty trivial):
1. Needs a way to get rid of the BlinkFeed; also, it would be incredibly sweet to add your own website resources and have them displayed in the BF.
2. Need a way to burn off sound/vibration from the lock screen (also needs notification bar toggles to turn on/off functions like WiFi, BT, etc like many other phones).
3. Needs a better headset (iPhone offers much better standard headphones with purchase).
4. Lastly, when I got the phone it had some gaps and tiny plastic "bristles" hanging in the audio jack socket (definitely needs improvement here).
Overall, this phone deserves 9/10 and I hope HTC keeps up with the good work!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Harrry Everything that your phone isn't
Well Well Well...
What a Smartphone this is...
That feel.. That Awesome Premium Looks.. Puts Kate Upton to shame :P
When you first hold this device, you know how privileged you feel... Aluminum Unibody .. What a Technology. I know its not a first since Apple used this first.. But then again, Apple are a first in most of the things, be it modern day touch, Aluminum feel...
So.. One by One :
Battery Life: Turn on power saver from 100% itself and expect it to beat most smartphones out there. What it does is underclocks the processor from 1.7 GHz to 1.2 GHz. Quite Useful. If you dont do that, prepare to be disappointed!
Media: HTC Zoe rocks! 1080p 469 ppi is a treat! You will forget about Retina Display for sure! Colors are natural and not artificially over-tones like Super AMOLED in S4
Phone features: Sense 5 (The UI, aka Launcher) is good but not like Stock Android Launcher. It has no lag, howsoever! Super fast! Speakers are awesome! Beats by Dr DRE is another advantage. Headphones sound so good! Touchscreen is very good and responsive. I dont care about no micro SD card capability as 32 GB is good enough for. The world is anyway moving towards Cloud storage and I see it moving forward without SD Card. regarding people critisizing that they cant change the battery. I have had 2 smartphones until now and I have never had to replace my charger. Just keep a USB Cable with you and you would be fine, just in case. You can find a USB jack almost anywhere!
The Camera is good but not great. In the night, its the best out there, most of us party in low light conditions dont we? So its always good to have the Ultrapixel thing!
Looks & Feel: Requires no words, fresh from heaven! Most B'ful phone out there!
Performance: Very Fast, people saying S4 has octa core and all, well those 8 cores cant be used at the same time in any cost. it has 4 Cores at 1.9 GHz and another 4 crores at 1.2 Ghz. for balancing between battery and performance
Value: Well with the HTC One Tradeup program, and transferring my number to Sprint, I paid ZERO Dollars!

As a long-time iPhone user, my first HTC phone was the One X and while it was a very good experience, something was amiss in terms of solidity and HTC knocked this ONE out of the park.
This is the smartphone the iPhone 5 wanted to be... everything about this device is excellent - build quality, battery life, audio, screen and camera. I use this phone on a daily basis with joy and have no complaints at all.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Harper Best phone out there
Got my hands on this phone as soon as it came out.
Now what really turned me on to this phone is it's design.
-The unibody and sleek all aluminium body with a 1080p screen.
-The speakers were an added bonus. They're called BoomSound by HTC and are clear and each of them come with their own little built in amp.
-The IR port which allows me to control my home theater from the stereo to the cable box to the usual tv.
-The Sense UI is nice and sleek and not over bearing.
-Battery lasts me all day and then some. The con about it is that the battery does take a while to hit 100 %
The only negative I have is sometimes the home button or back button doesn't respond to my fingers. But I've been informed that there is a fix in the works.
Basically if you're on the wall about this phone, go to your local shop and hold the phone and you'll know your answer right then and there.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by sjwu Beats the GS4 and iPhone 5. End of Story.
HTC has bet everything on this phone and it has paid off with room to spare. The design, as always with HTC devices, is impeccable. Nokia might be trumpeting their new Lumia 925 and the next Galaxy Note might be aluminum, but HTC did the unibody sleek metal body first, and they did it right.
The rest of the hardware is equally as impressive: the 1080p 4.7 in. screen, which is the perfect size; I quite honestly can't stand the gigantic displays that are now the norm for Samsung, nor the plastic shells. The quadcore Snapdragon processor and generous RAM and storage are incredible in making even the most demanding tasks smooth. The speakers are ridiculously loud, and the placement makes me wonder why someone hasn't done it before.
The camera is also very solid; HTC's other gamble of not buying into the megapixel myth has also paid dividends. The result is exceptional low-light performance and clarity in daylight shots that beats other comparable high end cameras. The software enhancements HTC has added also make very cool shots really easy. Lenses are available before you take a shot, with filters and editing available after the fact. Also cool are the Zoes, which are 3 second clips, which I have actually used to great effect, mainly for sports photography, which unlike other sports modes does it intelligently along a slider instead of taking 10 pictures you need to swipe through and are very hard to compare in reference.
The software improvements now are also notable. HTC has received significant criticism in past versions of Sense for messing around too much. Now they've slimmed down considerably. The major addition is Blinkfeed, a kind of default Flipboard which can integrate news and social. I personally only use it for news, since the social aspect can start to be overwhelming, often drowning out from people you frankly don't care that much about.
The battery life understandably is a bit less than I would like. Taking advantage of the ridiculous hardware and tremendous screen is very draining. Any bit of moderate use will drain it before the day is done. I've pretty much kept power saver on all the time to keep life to a full day with moderate use.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SandyM Best HTC phone yet
I have been a fan of HTC ever since I got my first HTC phone, the HTC EVO 4G 3 years ago. I then got the successor, the HTC EVO 4G LTE, and finally got my hands recently on the HTC One. All I can say is that Iâ€™m impressed. HTCâ€™s phones keep getting better and better.
I have the HTC one in the silver color on Sprint. My first impression of the HTC One was its super sleek, aluminum unibody construction. The fit and finish of this phone is amazing. There is a nice weight to the phone, and the back has a slight curve that makes it fit nicely in the hand. The 4.7â€� screen is beautiful. BlinkFeed is a nice feature and I like being able to see my topics of interest and social networks all brought together in my home screen.
The Snapdragon 600, quad-core processor really makes this phone snappy. I have downloaded over 50 apps, have a ton of pics and mp3s on my phone, and the phone is still very responsive. Iâ€™ve had the phone for a month and havenâ€™t experienced any sluggishness.
The UltraPixel camera is great and there is almost no lag when you go to snap a photo. Iâ€™m still experimenting with the Zoe camera feature, but have used the camera in many low light settings and was impressed with how the pictures turned out.
The BoomSound, dual front stereo speakers sound rich and crisp. Iâ€™ve watched Netflix at home while running on the treadmill or doing laundry, and have no trouble hearing the sound over background noise.
Call quality on the HTC One has been great. The battery life is pretty good. I charge my phone at night, and with moderate use, my phone lasts until the evening around 8pm without a charge. Overall, this is a great phone and I would recommend it to anyone. The only cons I have are the following: 1) I wish the volume button was a bit more raised. The button is flush with the phone and only has a slight bit of texture to allow you to find it by touch; 2) since Sense 5 doesnâ€™t have a menu button, some apps display a large black bar at the bottom of the screen as a menu button. Hopefully a software update allows for the option to allow the home button to serve as a menu button as well. Currently the home button long press activates Google Now, and a double tap brings up the recent apps menu.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jmendenhall Best phone on the market hands down
Donâ€™t let the â€œnot running the latest version of Androidâ€� talk fool you, the HTC One is the best all-around smartphone on the market today. It has the features you want (like dual-front speakers, a browser that can run flash, wide- angled cameras and infrared) without feeling jam-packed with gimmicks. By going with 4.1.2, it gave HTC a chance to cut down the errors you find when using GUIâ€™s with Android. I am noticing a considerable drop in app crashes compared to my last phone (The Galaxy Note 2, which is a great phone as well. Itâ€™s my second choice right now.)
My two cents on BlinkFeed.
I didnâ€™t think I would use Blinkfeed (I already use Scope), but I am using it way more than I expected. It is great for reading news articles when you are on the go. Currently have it set for Vice, Atlantic and Reuters. I am hoping they add more sources in the future. NPR, Harperâ€™s and National Enquirer would make my next list.

This is a stylish and capable of many things device which I consider a serious competitor to iPhone. If not for a tiny issue, I would grade it as "Excellent". However, there is just one little thing that really annoys me: my HTC One constantly disconnects from WiFi. Imagine, you are in a middle of important conversation, and suddenly you phone stops seeing the strong and very much available signal (as determined by a laptop). Personally, I blame Android, the OS which is notoriously known for being incapable to deliver reproducibly-reliable WiFi connection on numerous devices (I've returned my Nexus 7.2 next day after getting it). Perhaps, the nature of this problem is different. I wonder if there is any solution to the problem... As for the rest, as I said, I like it...
