Rated 5 out of 5Â by Oshi Fantastic!
I have never loved a phone as much as I love this one and I did not want a full touch screen phone. I was in need of a phone and was using an HTC Status, which I loved but I was very limited. I love music and taking photos. The front speakers are awesome, the camera takes impressively great quality photos! I love that I can customize the look and use of my phone. It is easy to use and set up. I am so happy with this phone. I am an HTC fan for life.

I previously had the HTC EVO 4G LTE and when it died, I received this phone instead! I LOVE this phone, although the screen size is the same as my old EVO, the processor kills it! It runs so smoothly and the camera is OUTSTANDING. I recommend this phone to anyone! (if only sprint had LTE in Phoenix....)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by dbr270 This IS the phone you're looking for
There's so much to love about this device, I won't be able to list it all. Here are the biggest features:
1. The sound is amazing. Even if you only occasionally watch video or music, you never have to worry about cupping your hand behind the device to be able to hear. It all comes at you in glorious stereo sound. Why didn't they think of this sooner?!
2. Everything looks great on this full HD screen. It has accurate color and temperature reproduction. It isn't over-saturated like other top brands.
3. This device feels great! Every time you pick it up, it makes you smile. The simplistic, minimalist design is very aesthetically pleasing.
4. Sense 5. I bought and HTC because of Sense. It is very clean and looks great. For me, it's all about the widgets, and HTC has always had the best default widget packages. This holds true with Sense 5 and the HTC One.
Cons: There aren't many, but....
1. Camera. I like the low light abilities, but I wish it was the camera off the One X+. It does not do as good with color saturation, and HDR is not nearly as good as it was on the One X+. I'm doing a lot more post processing with my photos.
2. The app drawer is really confusing. I want to be able to drag an app to the dock AND have it show up in both places. However, once you drag it out of the app drawer, it is only in the dock.
It all comes down to this: This is the best phone you can buy today!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Seanes Better than many others I have seen.
The HTC ONE really got it down with the all metal case which means that it won't crack or chip if it got treated roughly. Larger screen for better viewing and in 1080p with front facing speakers that no other company has done which makes total sense. A ton of features that are very useful in a slim sleek design. Battery life far surpasses all the rest and prom power on to complete boot up is amazing. I have not seen any other phone do what this does hands down. Other than that I did wish it allowed for a micro sd card for additional storage even though 32gb is a lot for on board memory.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by PhoneyTechnologist Exceptional All-In-One Package
I love everything on this phone - with one VERY minor exception (which I will get to)...
I had been on various iterations of iPhones, and many smart phones before Apple announced their product lines. The learning curve was a it consuming on this phone. I like things how I like them. Don't make me use it your way - I want to use it my way. This is all very possible with the HTC One, but it takes some doing. Your experience with the phone will mature over a very reasonably short period of time.
So, the one item I do not like... The power switch location is inconvenient. This switch turns the screen on and off, as well as turning the power on and off. As a right-handed person, the location on the top left of the phone is a bit inconvenient. I find that I need to take it out of the car-mount bracket just to turn the phone's screen on or off. Rather annoying - and this is hardware, not something that I can tweak or modify. It is what it is. With all the benefits of this phone, I can cope!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Tiemen Close but no cigar
Looks and feels great, but the buggy phonebook is turning me off. For some reason the phone's internal contact list decided to self-erase leaving me with useless Facebook contacts without phone numbers. Now I'm left with Lookout Security's lousy backup restore that floods my phone with junk social media duplicate entries. BOOOO

My first HTC and absolutely love the one hands down. Exceeded my expectations for quality and the thought that went into this one. The slow motion replay on the camera out performed a several thousand dollar unit that was designed for troubleshooting, You can actually hear the audio since it faces the front. For me, I like the blinkfeed. Select your sources and it's right there up front when you're ready to view it.
No buyers remorse here.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sandman313 The best smartphones ever made to date!
This year HTC has definitely stepped up to the plate, and made a more competitive, stunning, powerful phone! For years HTC has lacked in marketing their wonderful phones to a wide audience, but the One has showed so many people that HTC can make a phone that truly is "everything your phone isn't". Let me explain by talking about 5 key features:
-The HTC UltraPixel Camera: One thing I love about HTC is that it loves to be different and take risks. While megapixels have set the bar for smartphones, HTC has decided to focus on the creating a camera that allows 300% more light, a better image sensor, and cutting edge imaging tools. The result is a camera that takes fantastic photos!
-HTC Zoe: Very unique to the One. It's a cool way to really bring that dull photo gallery to life. I love how it turns a slideshow of your photos into a cinematic production!
-HTC BlinkFeed: Isn't it better when you can see everything on one screen? Not only does it combine all your social media together, but you have the ability to add news and entertainment sources as well, which truly makes the home screen on your phone feel like a social hub.
- HTC BoomSound: These literally are the best speakers that you will ever hear on a phone. The Beats Audio makes a big difference. Just that simple.
-HTC Sense: If there is anything that sets apart HTC from the rest, it is definitely Sense! One of the main reasons why I only buy HTC! Sense is truly unique to HTC, and it's a one of a kind user interface. From widgets to social media, it really defines integration and customization to a whole new level!
On top of all that amazing stuff, the One is simply the most elegantly designed phones available. The full metal body makes it look like a piece of art. So many people have complimented my phone just on looks! But looks is only half of it. It's also a powerhouse underneath all that metal, running a 1.7 Ghz Snapdragon quad-core processor with 2 GB of ram! This definitely makes the phone one of the fastest on the market. Multitasking is done with ease. The screen is gorgeous, and makes those photos and videos look crystal clear.
Even though this phone is great, I do have some suggestions to make the next One better! The camera is amazing, but could be improved to take pictures during night. As a fan of HTC Sense, I was a little disappointed that many widgets were removed, and the whole 3D experience was gone. That was one of my favorite parts about my HTC Sensation.
That's my summary of one of my favorite phones I have ever owned! I've stuck with HTC since the T-Mobile G1 (HTC Dream). The reason I still love to is that HTC brings something new to the table, something unique, something different. I definitely recommend this phone! You will love it. Already anticipating for the next One!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TMANOFKELLER Truly a work of art on HTC's Behalf
Before my htc evo V4G i had an lg optimus elite and it was awful...slow, no processing power, no memory space whatsoever, overall a garbage phone, next up was the HTC Evo V4G. This was my first phone to feature a dual core but unfortunately it was at the time of purchase already three years old in design and features...it became obsolete very quickly, but i can't knock it completely, its 3D camera was a real treat, again it was somewhat glitchy and i quickly lost interest in it. I have waited ever so long to get an HTC One, i have wanted one since they were released back in april. Now on to the real review of the one. If i could use any sentence to describe this device it would most certainly say "HTC One, The phone that saved HTC" The quality is impeccable, while i did find some very minor gaps, my otterbox defender series case hides it very well so no problem there. The beats audio and front facing speakers is truly a sight and sound to behold, it offers clean and crisp sound quality and just gives it that "Oomph" you are looking for that other devices do have. Battery life is great for the power this device throws out, infact, i can get through the average work day (8:00AM - 5:00PM) with just between 19-27% of the battery remaining! The screen is gorgeous, it just has a feel to it that says it is a flagship phone and is a must have!! Its delicate though, of you are a person who drops their phone very frequently or at all for that matter, i would highly consider the Otterbox Defender series case for your HTC One as well as a scratch resistant screen protector (Put the plastic screen protector on first, and then equip the otterbox) Overall? Its a work of art and it is indeed worth every penny! Get one if you do not already have one! Let me arrest any fears you have of getting one, if you get one through contract, you are going to enjoy the next two years or however long your contract is!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Retrotexas My two months with the One
I absolutely enjoy this phone ( I am actually writing the review from it). Two months of use and I still find new features and use. The camera to me couldn't be much more awesome. The built-in filters and editing software make it a breeze to share images on the fly. Zoe makes action shots fun, and capturing stills from the video makes finding a great shot simple. Boomsound rocks! I think the standard has been set for all phones moving forward, watching video would never be the same without it.calls are clear as spring water too. I have just one issue ,the battery. Either it doesn't have great longevity or I need to tweak some settings. In either case this is one great companion and I wouldn't give it up.

This phone replaced my mytouch 4g slide that got stolen. The metal body feels great. Even though i have it in a case 99% of the time, i do take it out when at home so i can feel the body. The camera takes great pictures and overall the phone is pretty quick when playing games and such,

Rated 5 out of 5Â by NatNat Best Phone I ever had!
This phone is simply just amazing. Just got it this week but i love it. I had the S3 and even the s4 for a little while but i gkt tired of their defective phones and flimsy phones i felt like my samsung would break. This phone is solid. From now on ill stick to htc. I also noticed that the batter of the One lasts longer than my previously owned s4 active and s3. The camera wihout a doubt surpasses any other phone. And this phone is just as fast as any other flagship phones out there. The power saver is also very useful and effective unlike samsungs in which i need to install other battery saving apps. I love the design also and the speaker just wows me. Best phone on the market right now. I could see that htc put a lot of effort on this phone and it deserves better.

Hello , I bought my HTC One on July 4 . I can only say good things about this phone it is jam packed with features, such as slow motion camera! If you buy this phone you won't regret it. The battery life for me who I would consider a heavy user is about 15 hours that's with about 2 hours surfing the web 3 hours music and other battery draining activities. I'm so happy I chose this phone it hasnt don't anything short than impressed me . The speakers are loud and clear , also the dual microphone is amazing I've recorded inside of a concert with little to no ease with perfect sound quality , sounds like you're actually their. I love it and I'm sure you will too .

Battery Life: It's good if you are using the device just as a "PHONE"
Look and Feel: Everything is good until it heats up, cant hold it in hands while its overheaded
other: My PC is not able to show the device content if the cable is connected to a USB 2.0 prot!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jordanutah Reason to Return to Android
I bought an HTC Hero from sprint the day it came out and I loved it. It was an excellent phone and far outperformed my expectations. The software HTC puts on their phones is light and enjoyable. It's not the feature packed sledgehammer of Samsung's Galaxy series and is all the better for it. The best parts of this phone are the little details that lend to the ease of use. I love the option to use the bottom bar icons to unlock the phone into whichever program you flicked up. It's a fantastic sounding and looking phone as well. It was an excellent replacement to my old Nexus S and stayed true to my love of my old HTC.

Rated 5 out of 5 really good phone some issues
Overall great phone bus I don't think itâ€™s as easy to use as older phones but that could just be getting use to the software. Also the internet keeps cutting off I don't know why that is Iâ€™ve read that that has been an issue with some of the other HTC phones. Honestly besides the issue with the internet just disconnecting itself it seems perfect; though I do wish that you did not have to install anything to connect the phone to a computer that makes it so that itâ€™s not accessible

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sparkle90 Gorgeous Device
The HTC One is gorgeous, thin, and feels nice in-hand. The screen displays a beautiful, clear picture, too. It's definitely better than the screens being used by the current competition. And I think even the BlinkFeed looks rather sophisticated.
The One isn't all beauty and no brains, though. It's fast. I immediately noticed an increase in my Internet browsing and download speeds. In fact, I was rarely able to use 4G with my previous smartphone, despite paying extra for it monthly, but now I constantly have a strong 4G signal in many of the same locations where it didn't work before. Also, there are lots of cool Zoe camera features, like slow motion, sequence shots, object removal, etc. And, dare I say it, I look even prettier in photos taken with the One.
Unfortunately, I do have a few minor complaints. For example, I was slightly disappointed with the BoomSound and Beats audio. They're great features, of course, but the max volume and sound quality didn't meet my expectations. I was also disappointed to learn that the battery takes hours to charge completely. I do feel like it is long-lasting once it's fully charged, though. Additionally, while I feel the phone is easy to use, I wouldn't know about some of the features if I didn't search the Web for tips.
Overall, I'm happy with my silver HTC One. It was truly an upgrade.

My HTC One is by far, the best phone I've ever owned. Yes, it took me some time to get used to, but all things worth having take time. If you don't like a challenge when learning something new, don't take this phone on. Camera is great, Sound Quality and all the other specs are great. The phone is one of a kind. The best looking phone out there. It's a lot nicer than my old Samsung and my iPhone. If you're not willing to accept the phone as it is, then don't waste your time trying to dink around with it. Like it or not, it's the best phone on the market.

battery life is really strong, compare to iPhone 5, HTC One has longer battery life, last 1-3 hours longer. When you are holding it, you will feel really comfortable. Unlike iPhones and Lumias sharp edges. The Speaker is really loud, but Galexy S3 and S4 are both louder(if you don't use your finger to cover up the S4's speaker). But as we all know Beats doesn't have excellent equalize. But I guess you have to play some extreme musics at max volume to notice the differences. It is really durable and strong metal body. I dropped it couple times, and only a small scratch at the edge. Everything is every nice, except the camera. 2 mp is not enough for picture. the most you can do is 5 feet away from your focus. everything farther than that will get blurry. Iphone5, Htc One and S4 all have something unique about them, and I choose HTC one over S4 and Iphone 5.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Iconaw1 Amazing Build Quality, Great Phone All Around.
I have to say I was a little hesitant while playing with it in the store, because I was coming from a Galaxy Nexus which runs stock Android and was worried about not liking Sense. I was between the HTC One and the Droid Ultra. Was looking at the Ultra because of the battery life and almost stock Android UI. I am so glad I went with the phone. I figured if i got tired of Sense I would just use Nova Launcher (like I did on my Nexus) but after two days with Sense I have not problems with it at all. It is FAST. Everything that I listed with 5 stars is great on this phone. I though the 4 ultrapixel (megapixel) camera was a bit of a gimmick originally the, but have to say this thing takes great pictures. even if there not as sharp and the Zoe feature is awesome. I use it more than anything on my phone (other than texts) it is great for capturing events with ease; It really does all the work for you. You just click the Zoe button and take pics and videos, it does the rest. I also really like having a few choices on how my the text messaging app looks. (i.e. colors of bubbles and backgrounds) I have always rooted my phones because there was something wrong with them i wanted to change but with this phone I do not feel the need to root. I usually get around 14 hours on a charge which is good for me, though on heavy days I sometimes need to charge. I only have one complaint that is not having the ability to turn off the charging LED light. I use my phone as my alarm clock and it sets in a dock right next to my bed and the light is on when trying to sleep. I really hope HTC adds something in the setting to turn this off in the next update. (not getting my hopes up though)

I came from an iPhone 5, and wanted a bigger screen. In March I learned about the HTC One and it looked like the best android phone out. When I got it, I was so surprised with the boomsound speakers and the screen quality. The speed of the snapdragon 600 is like silk. I think a phone is about the experience and this phone provides the best experience in my opinion. Battery life is alright, about as good as my iPhone 5 and even better with power saver on. Sense 5 has some nice features, but I put Nova launcher, and I have enjoyed every day of using this device. I definitely recommend it for those looking for a quick, greatly designed android phone.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sirkdow Simply, the number ONE of mobile Phones.
I am honored to explain why I consider HTC One the best phone.
Firts for the Design:
-One is the best for Materials, the alluminium give you a perfect "Touch and Fill", also better than iPhone.
Second for Performance.
I own the phone for two months and has not EVER rebooted for Bugs.
I've never encountered lag of any kind. Simply Perfect.
Then, for the Sense. I LOVE the BlinkFeed, I have my content and news always updated.
No Comment. Unsurpassed, Compare it with other phones would be useless, One win Always.
I love all of the terminal and are incredibly happy purchase.
Only one thing I can complain about ..... the word "Beats Audio" went away quickly D: But it still remains the king of mobile Phones.
