People on Verizon should welcome this news with open arms and a smile on their faces.

Not unless VZW has suddenly added GSM frequencies to their system.

Sorry for misunderstanding... I thought it works on anny carrier since it's the unlocked "USA version" and all.

In India it is 42000 Rupees (800$). Better order it from a relative in US.

And here you go again at htc one article for the sake of trolling...how much per negative post? Pathetic lol

you are so wrong man... the ultrapixel has really good quality camera lens.
None of the phone out there can provide wide angle shots like my new One.
I don't need to say much. But you can hate it as much as you like.
Until you actually seen the phone and held it on your hand. You will just be amazed how nice this phone is.

I am in Africa and i am getting the unlocked version from America next week, i am using the One X but one thing i want to ask is that is the HTC One's camera better than the 8MP of the One X? if yes then i am cool with the 4 UtraPixel.

Some say picture quality is so so in good light condition. I would say its about on par to a bit worse comparing to One X. Just don't expect a major difference, but overall it is still a solid camera for a cell phone

don't forget that most of the tests were made with phone without the software update
6. rizevnarastek (Posts: 310; Member since: 06 Sep 2012)
Video is great with amazing sound recording.
Still shots are on par with others in good lighting conditions but in low light it beats the competition hands down.

If you don't do much editing to your photos, then yes, very much so, especially in low light. Go look at some camera samples from it, just make sure they were made after the update which greatly improved quality.

I am curious how this phone is different from buying a One from AT&T at full fare (no contract) and asking for the unlock codes at the time of purchase?
15. slaggyb (Posts: 165; Member since: 19 Oct 2011)
You don't get no ugly at&t brandings plus bloatware... lastly you will escape taxes if you don't leave in texas and california..

wow wow wow!!!! thats literally AFFORDABLE. !!! good on ya HTC. u guysss rock.....
20. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3643; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
That's less than buying off contract from the carriers, plus you get no branding, no bloat, and an unlocked SIM.
26. true1984 (Posts: 470; Member since: 23 May 2012)
you kind of get that with sprint with the lack of carrier branding and unlocked SIM, just the bloatware. still not sure if the LTE work internationally though

If I was to get this phone.. it'd be the 64GB unlocked. Dev edition!

This is a great deal. I may have to reconsider my Galaxy s 4 purchase, get this and get the note 3 later.
