"Best usability, design, screen of any phone to-date."5.0 starson by danmetzner
Pros: The front facing speaker system is the best sounding. Button controls and earphone jack placement is just where they should be. The screen resolution is ahead of the competition, bright in sunlight and easy to read, beautiful color rendition.
Cons: None, the ability to change a battery has never been an issue for me in over 15 years and obviously not an issue with millions of Apple users. As for storage 32MB is more that I will ever use, if I did need more I would save off some pics to my PC
Summary: I am a business user first and a personal user second.
I have had two Samsung Galaxy phones, the S2 an S3. I returned my S3 for a iPhone 5 as the Galaxy did not have a good user design whereas this is where Apple excels. It's not necessarily everything that a phone has that makes it a great phone, because most users will never use all the features available. For me, the basics, the features I use everyday and how the phone fits and feels in my hand is paramount.
The HTC One is now the best. The hotspot feature works better and faster than the iPhone 5 and Galaxy.
Pictures are another thing that need to be practical. I don't need mega pixel pictures! If I wanted that I would buy a Nikon or something like it. The HTC camera is fast, captures low light shots better than anyone, and has seamless sharing capabilities. I can send many more 920KB pictures than I can 14 - 21 MB pictures!
Best all around phone in the market.
