"Best Phone Ever! Beats clunky iPhone & Plastic Samsung"4.5 starson by natmaxx
Pros: Sound and Screen are excellent. Built in stereo speakers sound great even at maximum volume levels. I Loaded the phone with over a dozen apps to start with and it did not run out of storage. Fast load, app swapping and good multitasking.
Cons: Problems focusing closeup. Some features from past HTC phone cameras are missing. Speech recognition glitchy. No SD card slot. No removable battery.
Summary: Best phone to date. HTC One is number one. Needs some tweaks and it is still only Andoid 4.1.2.
Camera, while only 4MP is best in phone. Shoots excellent pictures with enough light. Shoots grainy pictures in low light where any other phone-camera would shoot black images.
HTC Sense skin that runs over Android makes for a much better user experience then stock Android or Samsung skin.
Speech recognition glitchy, sometimes not attempting to recognize what is said, while other times it stops recording in the middle of speaking. Amazon App store does not work at launch still waiting for upgrade. Stupid bar code sticker stuck on back of phone looks cheap.
iPhone's iOS has been stale and weak for years and now looks weak as water next to a fully mature Android phone.
HTC One has a much better build quality then the iPhone or plastic feel of Samsung Galaxy.
HTC One feels good to hold and amazing to look at and to listen too, leaving the sharp edged, bulky and primitive iPhone in the dust.
