HTC One

Searched real quick and didnt find a thread

So what's everyones thoughts on the phone?

I grabbed it today, gave my mom the iPhone 5 I was using. Got tired of phone and the iOS6 so I decided to switch over.

I like the phone alot so far. It's pretty quick, pretty simple to use and pretty customizable (not something alotta apple users have haha .. never care for jailbreaking btw). It's way better looking than the 5 also.

Only thing that could be better is the camera, it's not bad at all but not really as good as the iPhone 5's is.

Still gotta a lot to learn about this phone haha.

I've had an iPhone since the original one but I think when my contract's up, I'm gonna pick up an HTC One. I think the size is perfect.

You think the HTC One's camera is worse than the iPhone 5's? Try taking a picture in low light and get back to me.

I bought one the weekend it came out (1 for me, 1 for the wife). I'm loving it.

You will not get any second glances from Apple fanboys, only Android fans, but what's new?

I love the output of the speakers, but the Beats name makes me cringe a bit. Great output for a phone.

Yea, as far as speakers on phones go, these are the best by far.

That isn't saying much though.

It's just a phone - it makes phonecalls, can text and look up porn.


Nothing revolutionary about it.

Good thing nobody claimed otherwise.

It is a phone with excellent build quality running Android.

You've never shown someone a video on your phone? Sharing heaphones is disgusting and cupping the back of the phone so that you can hear better is just pathetic. Good speakers are more than a gimmick...try it out, you might determine you like them.

My Ride: '99 Techno Violet M3
I'm a hardcore Apple user, but this is one of the few Android devices that actually impressed me.

It should be noted that I never found the iPhone speakers to be inadequate though.

Only android that I'd ever consider, the build quality really is impressive.

Yup, as soon as my warranty expires I'm going back to my jailbroken Setup, which I find lovely... Except of course in 5 size...
