great smart phone, but one critical flaw
16 January, 2014
I had been a HTC user from last 4-5 years, this acquisition has been phone #5 from HTC stable and last one being HTC Desire HD.
Looks - A stunner
I did buy HTC One for it's Design and WoW factor, it does well on these front with awesome blink feed, which makes your phone a new one every time you lookup, I been addict to phone than earlier because of this feature. the unibody aluminium body with blink feed makes your phone the prettiest and very high end.
Seems to be heavily influenced with windows metro style menu placement and design, it takes a while to get used to it. I am heavy duty phone, sms, email,camera and browser user - every thing works as advertised and has right knobs to make operations quicker and versatile
Disappointed with quality of photos compared to other smart phones in market. It ability to take good photos in night is nothing great, this has been point HTC has been trying to sell hard, no big deal.
Camera software is feature rich and works well. The nicest one being gallery, the "joe" feature is good and gallery is super cool.
The position of microphone is causing major hearing issues to the other person of the line. The phone needs to be held on right had or in certain angle while holding in a left hand. It is major nuisance and frustration for me, even to extend of buying another phone.
