Im talking better than that, plastic not rubber, rectangular buttons, exact cutouts around the camera, a case so perfect that you cant tell it apart for the 5c

Other than the aluminum case, the HTC One shares nothing with the iPhone.
If you're not hung up on the iOS, the HTC One is a superior device.

aluminum case? check
non removable battery? check
no micro sd storage? check


never talked **** about the htc one. ive said it numerous times, if i were to switch, that's the phone to switch to. althought the moto x is nice too.

oh i dont think the htc one's camera is superior to the 5.

3.5" screen... it's really big. A giant screen.
The guy was a marketing genius.
RIP Steve Jobs.



Contrast with Balmer.
Good riddance.

The iPhone 5C plastic was first seen with the iPhone 3G ... this is nothing new and very common with designers. 3G was another iPhone 3 but the cost was $99. If you look at other products that Apple has produced you will see the same. Like the MacBook. We saw it in Black and White plastic and then we saw it in Aluminum. The same with the iPhone lol The colors of the iPhone 5c are the same exact colors of the iPod Touch 5.

iPod Touch colors


iPhone 5c



ipod nano has the green



iphone 3G





Every phone I've own, I never saw the need to remove the battery. By the time you need to replace a battery is when you are ready to upgrade. Who needs to store all that crap on a phone? smh That's why they make external drives with wireless connection or servers.

Same here I'll be using it or trying to navigate through my phone and it'll just switch off to the apple logo and proceed to run normally afterwards

Anyone with unlimited data on att? I found a work around for the data throttling after 5 gigs. If there's any interest I'll post it here.

did 9 gigs last month. and 8 gigs prior to that. no throttling here.

if it wasnt for unlimited data, i would have left AT&T a long time ago to save $30 a month.

Okay this worked for me
1) turn off lte
2) turn on airplane mode
3) call yourself, your phone will prompt you to turn off airplane mode. hit ok
4) let the call duration go for 5 seconds then hang up
5) turn back on lte.

I didn't think this would work. I hit 5.5 gigs in 12 days on lte i was throttled to .5mb/s for almost a week I did this and now I'm at full speed.
