It's a beautiful phone.
I'll take this aluminum body over some cheap plastic any day.
I hope the new sense is a major improvement, it is certainly...strange compare to other UI's.
The specs are all there, now we just need to see it perform.

the design is definitely better than gs4, gs4 will use the same plastic whereas the one uses premium metal unibody and chamfered edge
htc just needs more marketing

Agreed, and while I would have liked the screen to take up a bigger portion of the front of the phone (lots of extra bezel), the aluminum design is sturdy and it's territory that HTC has been successful with. I personally prefer the One X's design and polycarbonate material, but if Samsung's GSIV looks anything like the GSIII than HTC will continue to make better built/looking phones.

and all boxes ticked, which they repeatedly fail to do, the most obvious being lack of SD expandable memory.

not everyone needs or wants an sd card if we can purchase larger options. when i worked in a Sprint Tech center most customers didnt even know they had a memory card.

who needs an sd card when u have a 60 gig of internal
2300 mah lol the butterfly has 2000 and has good bettery life according to gsmarena
so the yea gs4 will be a hit but not like every year since the only places where sammy could beat htc were battery life and performance and with 2300 mah and the s4 600 i dont think
so gs4 no thanks jeff

Htc one has 1080p screen, optical image stabilizator, like lukia 920 does, hdr video on both cameras, slow motion, hdr microphone, ultrapixel camera, 32/64 Gigs, and the probably will offer extra storage on Dropbox, highest ever ppi468, dual speakers...

if the design of the GS4 comes anywhere close to looking as good as this i'd be shocked. the plasticky s3 was horrible and looked like a piece of crap, but no one ever mentioned that.

Says the guy with a Samsung phone for an avatar. Stop being a fanboy just because Samsung doesn't have the best phone right now.

OMG.......I just saw a short hands-on on youtube......... quite franky I wasn't expecting that it would be that slim...nicely done HTC.
Only the battery hurdle remains crossing ....All the best !

enjoy the washed out screen and poor ergonomics
"worst contrast ratio of any modern smartphone"

Enjoy the washed out phone when anything else gets wet.

Being an owner of the Acro S.... it is now that I come to appreciate the IP57 certification....
Just like when we never thought we would use so many mega pixels in cameras, or front facing ones... or gigas of storage... and after you have it, you start using it...
I think I will never go back to a phone without IP57 certification... it is very practical and I really enjoy taking pictures of my baby boy when we are in the pool, without worries...
No screen problems or contrast ratio issues here..
You shouldn't trust PA reviews wholehearted...

Unfortunately now that I think about it, wouldn't someone just buy a Windows Phone if they wanted the new Sense UI? You buy Android to experience Android, why would they change it so drastically and seemingly similar to WP?
35. RiseAgainst94 (Posts: 281; Member since: 03 Mar 2012)
Every reviewer that posted that it had live tiles....which, if you didn't know, is a Windows Phone thing.
38. darkskoliro (Posts: 1076; Member since: 07 May 2012)
Like who? And I'm pretty sure the live thing was for the gallery no? Not for sense
39. RiseAgainst94 (Posts: 281; Member since: 03 Mar 2012)
Go on to PhoneArena's hands-on with the HTC One that they just posted and you'll see this quote:
Come to think of it, HTC BlinkFeed replaces the typical Sense homescreen we’re used to seeing with a very live tiled one instead. So yes, it does reminds us of Windows Phone a lot.
EDIT: The live tile thing is actually a part of the main UI, not the gallery. Weird huh? I would have preferred stock Android Jelly Bean, a real shame.
41. darkskoliro (Posts: 1076; Member since: 07 May 2012)
Actually blinkfeed acts like a widget, and you are allowed to have other homescreens. So....gives you an option? Yeah I think that brings the best of both worlds.

Way too much bezel (bottom) and no SD slot, I'll Pass
14. RiseAgainst94 (Posts: 281; Member since: 03 Mar 2012)
Why do people need more than 64 GB of storage? Though you're right about the large bezel, I do like the speakers on the front.
37. buccob (Posts: 2571; Member since: 19 Jun 2012)
Having 64GB internally makes the phone more expensive... I rather have 32GB with microSD or even 16GB internally... with microSD...
Cards nowadays are very cheap...
45. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4275; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
64 GB doesn't have to be expensive. On AT&T in the US, the One X+ has 64 GB of storage and costs as much as any other flagship device, and much less than a 64 GB iPhone 5.
Storage is actually relatively cheap, it's just some manufacturers (Apple) like to make tons of profit and overprice it.

no sd slot? it's 64 gigs...
24. BadAssAbe (Posts: 456; Member since: 22 Apr 2011)
I like the SD Slot on the LG Optimus G, on the outside, really easy to get to. To get the 64 Gigs it might cost $100 more vs a $60 64GB Class 10 XCSD Card.
I do love the Front facing speakers
