Rated 4 out of 5Â by WaiSan The ONE and only truly brilliant smartphone
Too much to put into words, this could be few pages. Let's make things short.
Elegant design gives you a high class feel and look with the aluminum body bringing you to a whole different level. You cannot get it from anywhere else. The HTC BoomSound is not disappointing at all. Am satisfied with the sound quality.
HTC Zoe makes me feel my gallery and pictures is ALIVE.
Phone temperature is alright, not too hot even when you're running multiple apps and playing games at the same time.
Battery life has improved.
I`m glad I found a new replacement for my HTC Sensation XE.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Josh531 The Phone That Holds The Throne
You can't go wrong w/ this phone! Lets start with im not a big contract person but if i had to sign the dotted line for a phone it would be this One. Sense UI is absolutely seamless & stunning. The Icons, Blinkfeed, App Drawer, Weather Widget all comes in sync to make a beautiful UI. Sense 5 was made from the ground up & is classy & elegant. IR Blaster works great, Boom Sound Rocks! Camera is good UltraPixels were a great idea HTC just next time use Sony's stacked technology w/ it(; I Absolutely love this phones hardware (exceptional btw) & software. When you guys make the HTC Two count on it that i'll be in line opening day! You guys have a life customer here. Keep Impressing!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Yasunori The MUST have gadget of the year!
My girlfriend has a Samsung S4 and she is totally jealous of my phone. She loves the HTC One more than the S4. She loves to take pictures and she said that the HTC One picture quality looks so much crisp and vivid! The look and feel of this phone will blow your mind. This is the Iphone for the ANDRIOD world but even better than the original. iPhone introduce the glass and metal finish well the HTC One top it off with this brand new device. I recommend you to buy this phone it has all the latest features and it brings you gadgets that you didn't even think it will make your life that much easier. Totally recommend this phone. I'm a 22 year old College student and this phone helps me in my everyday basis. Oh and by the way the display is amazing watching Youtube on this device totally changes your experiences and with Beats Audio you will feel and notice the difference!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BloodiedWraith Best Phone. Period.
I have been using smartphones since the Palm Treo 700p came out (that was my first) and I have used everything from BlackBerry to iPhone to Android (All types from AOSP experience from Google to Samsung's awful TouchWiz). I'm more of an Android purist - I usually do not buy a phone unless it's AOSP (for example, Nexus 4) or if it can be loaded with CyanogenMod custom ROMs. That all changed with the HTC One.
The HTC One is the perfect phone on many different levels. For one, the phone is not made of awful flimsy plastic like my least favorite manufacturer of all time (Samsung). The gorgeous aluminum unibody design beats out all other devices on the market today. Clean lines and a contoured shape makes it a comfort to hold and use for long periods of time as well as making it a phone that turns head when you use it.
The second thing is going to be the user interface. As I mentioned, I use Android only how Google intends it to be. Well, I used to. HTC's new Sense 5 UI is the best in the market. It's fast, fluid, and offers plenty of customization. The IR remote and HTC's TV app make an awesome combination for a universal remote.
The third and biggest thing for me - BoomSound. I thought it was going to be a gimmick, but let me tell you, I have never been so happy with speaker output on a phone. Usually I'm watching Netflix on my lunch break and cupping my hands around the speakers along the back of my phone. Not so with the One. With the front facing awesome speakers I can just put my phone down and watch whatever I want and know that I'm going to be able to hear it as clear as can be.
The only thing that I don't like is that the phone is STILL NOT on Verizon Wireless. It's been announced, but after that announcement we've heard nothing. I use the One on AT&T as my work device and have Verizon as my personal so the second it gets released I'm dropping my Samsung Galaxy Nexus and getting it. Also, it better come in that gorgeous new red color.

I've been a HTC users for some years and have used the HTC Desire (Bravo). Buy the HTC one as an upgrade and well this phone meets all my expectation. Superior builds quality and materials, immersive sounds and display. Blinkfeed and HTC Zoe are great as well. Well done HTC! The best phone yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 By Far the best smartphone
My previous phone is HTC inspire. Even though I liked the build of the phone (metal build), the software aspects of it is not comparable to other android phones. I was badly waiting to switch my phone, and thinking about which one to buy, and was in a dilemma to buy Galasy S4, or Nexus 4 or One. After reading the reviews that One has very good build, I bought the phone and didn't regret the day after. From the build aspect this is by far the best looking smart phone (including iphone). Compared to my previous phone and Nexus 4 (a friend has it) it has better battery life. I didn't have a chance to look at S4, but people are saying One's screen is better than S4.
So I would really recommend this phone to any one. and once again HTC One is "quietly brilliant"

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TeePoppa HTC One is simply the best smartphone to date!!
I have to say that from the first moment I held my new HTC One I knew it would be a great phone. The style and build quality are second to none and the sound sets the bar too high for any of it's competitors. It is also a very fast phone packed with features that just make "Sense" and that are not more gimmicky then useful. Over all a great well round better then expected device.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by jltklt Great phone unless you are using a bluetooth headset
So the sound quality of the speakers is great and when I use the phone to talk it sounds good. The camera is just ok. When I use my bluetooth headset it is HORRIBLE. Everyone says I am really loud and distorted. I ended up having to put a piece of tape over the mic on my bluetooth. I even tried buying an expensive Plantronics bluetooth and that was no better. HTC support had me try some things, but it didn't make much of a difference at all. I am trying to decide if the cool features and other good qualities about the phone out way the fact that it sounds horrible using a bluetooth. I may just switch to the Galaxy 4.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Nixz functionality - Great! : look and battery life - not so great..
you are looking for a phone that functions better that youur laptop, you found it. It is very fluid, and me machanically very tight. Agreed you root it, get SuperCID and S-Off, you can turn it into quite a powerhouse!
After I bought the One S, which was sexy as bell, I learned to put this phone in an Otter Box. The weight is disrtributed correctly, whereas you can hold the device and text with one hand. Great! Yeah, but this is an ugly phone! The One S was Cinderella, and this is the Ugly stepsister's foot after trying to squeeze it in that slipper! In the brushed stainless, all your attention is drawn to the two 1970's-looking tower of tiny holes. The battery, even with no mods, is poor if you even think about turning on WiFi. But, with so much diversity built into this Porsche Engine, you have to look at a Volkswagon Beetle.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by zxhwk Not Sure But Great Phone Over ALL
I had purchased this phone to upgrade from my HTC Touch Pro 2 and WOW what an upgrade it was .
I cant say anything more that what others have said about this phone because i have tried the Samsung S4 and I honestly
think that this phone is a much better phone than the Samsung S4.
Even though this is a branded Sprint phone it does NOT have all the BLOT ware in it like the Samsung model does
This phone also as a feature that you use the MICRO USB to HDMI cable and you can plug it into any HDTV and watch what
ever you want on the phone is displayed on your HDTV.
Love the FULL rich stereo sound ( it does NOT have the sound like a home theater system would but is very nice sounding)
The manufacture (HTC) allows anyone who buys it to UNLOCK it from there site for FREE .
The video is really beautiful even in day light .
I ordered the BLACK version and I am glad I did because it is so much more good looking than the silver version.
But the only drawback that I notice from this model and the Samsung S4 is this HTC ONE does NOT have the option to add
additional storage. But I think that is ok because I have a HP Tablet 32gig and I have never come close to using all the
space on it .
PS:::::: NOW for the BAD NEWS
I don't know if I got a DUD or not because mine did this weird thing meaning I would sync it to my computer and load all
my contact on it and then after disconnecting it was good to go but in about 30 minutes or so I would get this
notification pop on the screen saying Load Sprint default configuration you have to choose OK button on middle of screen.
IT would NOT allow you to say NO or BY pass this screen with out agreeing to it..
When you do agree to it I found out that it completely WIPES the phones CONTACTS off and anything else you have stored or downloaded or uploaded to it.
So I sync it again and low and behold 30 minutes later while I was still playing and learning the phone there it is again
the ( LOAD SPRINT DEFAULT CONFIGURATION ( OK ) so I agreed to it again think I might had done something wrong the first time and Low and Behold it WIPED the CONTACTS and a Couple videos I had uploaded to it.
This was strange so after about 8 times of this i came to the conclusion that there is a major software problem with this
phone because I even contacted HTC and they never heard of this problem..
I also check the ROM version from the one that is on Sprint site because this is where the download was coming from an OTA update and the one on SPRINT site is the same FILE and ROM version that is already on this phone so i don't have an answer why and also HTC doesn't have a reason why its doing this ( BY the way SPRINT does NOT know either ) most people know if you call sprint TECH that goes with out saying its just a WASTE of time calling them.
By the way the Signal problem I had with my HTC Touch Pro 2 well this HTC ONE was even WORSE than my OLD HTC Touch Pro 2
I had to try something for this signal problem so I order a REPEATER/BOOSTER to try
SPRINT DISPLAY MODEL DID NOT DO WHAT THIS ONE DID
The unfortunate part now is that I had to send it back after only 3 days of activation.

Rated 5 out of 5 The Best Smartphone of 2013 HTC ONE
The HTC One is the best Android phone Iâ€™ve tested to date, and the best phone on the market today. Itâ€™s superior construction and build-quality make the Galaxy S4 feel cheap, and the gorgeous screen is a show stopper. Carrying around this device will certainly garner some peeks and interest from others, as it feels like you canâ€™t help but be drawn to the simple, yet elegant and functional design. The vivid bright screen will make you wish they made it in a size ten times bigger, as movies never looked so good. The HTC One can easily perform as well as other new high-end devices like the S4 or Optimus G in real life situations.
The HTC One is fast, very fast. The HTC One features a quad-core 1.7 Ghz Qualcomm Krait processor utilizing the Snapdragon 600 chipset. The HTC One features 2 GB of RAM as well, and 32GB of internal storage.
HTC One also showcases the company's revamped Sense UI. The latest Sense 5 UI brings some drastic changes to the earlier look and feel of the home screen and is divided in two main screens - Blink Feed and Android homescreen. The Blink Feed becomes your aggregator for news, notifications, photo gallery and other social updates from various networking sites. This makes news not only more accessible, but with the feed updated every two hours on a data connection (or more if you have a Wi-Fi) you always stay abreast with the latest. The second screen as we mentioned above is the standard Android homescreen that allows you to add and place shortcuts and widgets.
The device is fitted with a 4.7-inch Super LCD3 touchscreen with a 1920x1080 pixel Full HD resolution at a whopping 468 pixels-per-inch. At the top and bottom of the frame we see the micro drilled holes which highlight the front facing stereo speakers.You also get HTC BoomSound, which brings Beats Audio technology and a dedicated amplifier for a more improved and enhanced sound quality.
The HTC One comes with only two touch navigation keys, the Home and Back button. The third Menu button has been stripped from the hardware in favor of contextual menus within Android applications. Although most apps for Android now include a software menu, especially if they are optimized from Android 4.0 or higher, the lack of a menu key may take some getting used to for seasoned Android users. On the top of the device is the sleep/wake button, and on the right side is the volume rocker. The bottom of the device is where users will find a Micro-USB port for charging and/or syncing; however, the port is offset slightly to the right side and isnâ€™t center, something peculiar (but Iâ€™m sure thereâ€™s a reason for it) and it makes docking the HTC One a little more difficult.
The HTC One also flaunts some stunning camera capabilities which raises the bar for smartophones further. The device packs in 4-megapixels and before you dismiss it, hear it out. The HTC One basically houses four million, large, UltraPixels in its sensor.To give you a comparison, eight million smaller pixels are found in 5-megapixel iPhone 5 while thirteen million micro pixels are found in the 13-megapixels Sony Xperia Z. This basically means that HTC One's each pixel is physically bigger and therefore enables you to capture more light, thereby producing a overall more vibrant and high-resolution picture.Other camera goodies on board include optical image stabilization and something called Zoe. Now Zoe is basically a camera mode that allows you to capture a 3.6 second video clip simultaneously with a burst of 20 full resolution photo.
The extra weight of the HTC One mentioned above can be attributed to the battery and aluminum frame. The HTC One comes with a 2300 mAh battery, 300 mAh smaller than the Galaxy S4â€²s battery. However, the HTC Oneâ€™s battery life when in Power Saving mode lasts much longer than the Galaxy S4 when in the same mode. Where S4 users were able to get through one day on the Galaxy S4 on a single charge, the HTC One was able to last two. Bottom line, the HTC Oneâ€™s longevity is a breath of fresh air, and will keep users texting, tweeting, and surfing day and night with no issues.

got my phone right when it came out, was an advocate phone. used to love it, but about a month in i started having problems. first it was telling that my sim card was removed, (i never opened that little door) the it started having issues with connectivity. no data what so ever where other phones get full signal. have to turn data of and on to get it back to work, maybe. when it works, its great. love the camera, display, battery is awesome. i guess i just have a lemon, thats why i still think its a very nice phone

Rated 5 out of 5 Best Phone Currently Available
My previous phone was a Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and I LOVED that phone. This phone is definitely on the same level of love, and surpasses in a few categories such as build quality and sound quality. The device's aluminum body is sleek and cool to the touch, and makes me feel as if I am holding a premium device. The BoomSound speakers are awesome, and give the richest sound of any phone I have used. The camera is both a gift and a curse: Images look great in low light, but the low MP count somewhat kills details when zooming in. The Zoe feature is neat, but essentially a novelty that will wear off after a while. The best camera feature would have to be the variable speed playback. Overall, this phone is definitely a contender, and would be my current king of smartphones.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Scottys209 it's the ONE for me!
I'm an Apple-Holic... I have airplay receivers at work, home, an apple compatable touch-screen receiver in my Mercedes... Yet I purchased the HTC One.... Why?... To put it simply, it's better than any of the iPhones currently offered, and I don't see any groundbreaking improvements with iOS7. I abandoned thousands of dollars invested in airplay equipment to have a phone I actually enjoy using. It's visually STUNNING, Everyone asks me what phone it is. I bought the Black version, and it's absolutely Gorgeous. The Sound is amazing for a phone, and the included headset, yes, it may not be an "unbranded beats" but they are definitely fantastic for an included set, especially since I don't want to bang around my $100+ set of sennheiser or beats earbuds. The screen is phenomenal in color, reproduction, clarity... everything. The build quality is fantastic. The camera is amazing for low-light and most shots, is it a 13MP? No, can you tell the difference in some scenarios, yes, is it better than a 13MP in some scenarios? Yes, and no, there's a trade-off. I wish the power button was in a different place, I wish the HTC logo on the front lit up and acted as a menu button, I wish it had a larger capacity battery, but, that's it... I LOVE everything else about this phone. It's definitely worth a serious look, and definitely much more substantial than the SGS4. If you want a phone that has features that work, and work well, not a ton of flashy garbage that doesn't really work, go for the One, if you want to talk about all the features your phone has and act like they all work when they really don't, go for the SGS4. Side note, I work in IT, in an enterprise environment deploying mass amounts of mobile devices of all flavors, and can have any phone I want at anytime.... I chose the HTC One and have no regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by nickerrides Almost the perfect phone
This phone is the most near perfect phone ive ever used....
It has a great camera with awesome features, AMAZING speakers and sound quality, an awesome HD screen and probably the most amazing body/construction ive ever seen on a phone.
The software is full of useful features like blink feed and a TV app that utilizes the IR blaster which you dont think you need untill you actually use them.
If i had to point out some flaws with this phone the 1st would be battery life... at least with mine is not the greates. I can make it through a full day with medium to heavy use with screen brightness 75-85%. Thats not bad of course but i wish it got even better battery life like some other phones ive used.
Another flaw would be the button lay out. Now I dont mind the order of the buttons (it took me about 4 days to get used to it) but the lack of a dedicated menu button drives me CRAZY!! with the apps that havent upgraded their design to follow Androids design guidelines you are stuck with 3 software menu buttons at the bottom of the screen and HTC didnt enable the option to enable a long press of the back button to get rid of that :/
BUT with those gripes being said this is still an AMAZING phone. I would recommend it to anyone and its by far the best phone ive used to date.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by mistahsingh There isn't much NOT to like about this phone.
This phone is plain and simply insane. The build is premium, the camera is phenomenal, its jam packed with features, has a snappy processor (games work like a breeze, phone lags rarely), and has a pretty awesome UI. Features that I love using are topped by Sense TV. Being able to control my TV/surround sound system with my phone is awesome. Dual front facing speakers? Awesome sound, blew my mind.
My biggest negative is battery life. I figured by 2013 we could have phones that can get you 24 hours easily. That is not the case. Heavy usage I get around 11-12 hours, medium 16, and if I basically periodically use my phone, then I get the ever elusive 24 hours.
Overall, best phone I've ever used.

The goods outweigh the bad in the One. Overall I would buy this phone again and again over anything out there. I really hope HTC improves the build quality on the "zero gap" claim, and continues to simplify and improve battery and system efficiency. So far though the battery lasts long enough, and Sense 5 is very quick and simple to use. The design is clean and beautiful in just about every aspect. Also it makes iPhone seem like "just a phone".

Rated 5 out of 5Â by FurtiveFalcon Amazing Phone.
This, in my opinion, is the best phone on the market right now. It looks great, it feels great in your hand...
The aluminum construction - sexy, though somewhat delicate. I have a case on mine to protect from dinging and scratching. The curved back feels absolutely great in your hand. It makes the device feel even thinner than it already is.
Front stereo speakers - why hasn't anyone else in the smartphone industry recently thought of this? The stereo sound makes a big difference. The Beats audio processing further enhances the sound. It adds a substance in the lower end. However, the Beats processing does sometimes cause audio glitches in certain apps. I usually disable it when using external speakers or headphones, since I am a bit of an audiophile.
The screen - best I've ever seen. Ever. I've never witnessed a smartphone screen of such high resolution. 1080p! And I had been blown away by 720p. In two years, we'll probably be seeing 4k phone screens...
The combination of a 4-core Snapdragon chip and 2 GB RAM finally allow for multitasking to be done right! The Sense interface is butter-smooth and snappy. The integrated app switcher makes multitasking easy. Everything you do on this phone is fast.
I will note, however, that some older apps actually run worse on this phone than on the older devices that were around when they were introduced. I suppose that they haven't been optimized for the modern processor architecture nor for the operating system.
Battery life through the day is better on this device than my previous (also an HTC device). I do have issues with the phone's battery draining while on standby, but I have rather poor cell service at my house (one bar, -95 to -105dBm). I suppose that is why.
The camera - even though slightly lower resolution than my previous HTC, the pictures are sharper, clearer, and of course, infinitely better in low-light situations. This is proof that megapixels aren't everything. Optics, sensor type/ quality, and other factors are more important than the number of pixels. HTC Zoe adds a great host of features to compliment the large assortment of features available for regular shots. I am impressed that full-resolution photos can be taken while shooting 1080p video! The only thing missing on this camera is optical (physical) zoom.
The only issues I have on this phone are issues that can easily be remedied by software updates and operating system patches. As of my writing this, I am running Android 4.1.2.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by 2CheyChey Best phone ever out of the box, but hardware quickly showing obvious flaws.
As soon as you open the package you're in awe of this beautiful piece of machinery that sits before you. That warm fuzzy "first time opened an Apple box" feeling. It's the perfect size, weight, shape, smooth as butter, and fast as lightning. Then about two months in you start feeling that butter getting hard and jagged on the edges. Like someone left it uncovered in the fridge for way too long. When you discover the dreaded gaps. It's starting to open up in places it's advertised not to open up. It still runs like a beast, but I'm wondering how much wider are the gaps going to get, and if HTC is going to replace it for me. Great phone, but it's gotta last more than 6 months...

I upgraded from the Motorola Atrix HD to the One and haven't looked back. This phone is great. Took it to an outdoor rock concert and the video capture was outstanding, I could hear people right next to me, the music and lyrics all at the same time and they sounded fantastic. The camera features are awesome, sequence shot is a must for anyone with kids. The screen is brilliant. The resolution is great and the colors are great, not over saturated. The processor on the phone makes it hum with literally no lag. I love the fact that you can essentially have 3 different android options with the blinkfeed, normal android, and a very ios like almost simple mode. The phone feels great in my hand, not cheap but something well put together. The one very minor gripe I have is that sometimes hitting the home or back buttons are difficult due to their size and proximity to the touch screen. Other than that I have no issues with the phone. I've been an Android user for years, and had other HTC phones before, now I can remember why. This is a great phone and recommend it to anyone.

Best phone out there. Was waiting for the galaxy s4, but when I saw this phone and it's premium aluminum shell, design, performance, and features I was sold. Only thing that galaxy beats this phone at is it's camera, not to say the Ones camera is terrible it it great in low lighting but when in daylight the photos are not as detailed as the galaxy's and the pictures look a little cartoonish. I really hope HTC continues making phones as great as this one.
