One day with the HTC One
Actually, HTC threw some rather interesting stats into the infographic. For example, 20% of those who want a smartphone camera would like to use it to take pictures in low-light areas. Gee, it must be a coincidence then that the HTC One uses UltraPixels which capture 300% more light than the traditional camera on a smartphone. Did you know that 50% of all social media users check their Facebook and Twitter as soon as they get up? Did you know that Blinkfeed receives 10,000 feeds a day from over 1400 media partners? Will that sway your decision on which phone to buy?
So now when you're showing off your HTC One to that girl next door that you're trying to impress, you can really show off your smartphone savvy by quoting one of these stats. And if she responds to all of this by running away from you screaming, trust us; she's just playing hard to get.

Is it supposed to convince people to buy this crap?

c'mon, maybe HTC One is slightly over-rated, but it totally, not a crap.
It's a good phone with amazing hardware.
I don't like the Sense 5, though.

It's not Total crap, but it's a lot more of the same HTC playbook. insufficient battery for the specs, Nice form factor, good looking phone. lets see in about three months what people are saying about it. if it WERE being released on Verizon, I probably wouldn't buy it. the S4 or the Note 2 offer a bettter overall package that this phone, IMO.

"20% of those who want a smartphone camera would like to use it to take pictures in low-light areas"
Thats one way of saying it. The other way would be - 80% of people does NOT prefer to take pictures in low-light areas
Nice try though HTC.

HTC is a good in designing hardware+software. but they are idiots. They focus on issues that are totally irrelevant/inefficient in promoting their phones (like the thing mentioned in this article). They need to focus on customer care, giving users a complete package phone (not a phone in tits & bits- capable of good things but lacking basic capabilities), listening to users complaints, giving proper support & service. Instead, HTC is doing all kinds of crap work. This has actually given a bad reputation to HTC. I myself had a terrible experience with HTC One V last year. And among 12 people I know who own HTC complain about some issue or the other. 5-6 people have actually sold their HTC mobiles to get another brand because they were fed up of HTC's device problems, customer care & service, including me. I sold my HTC One V. I own a galaxy S2 now.

Wow, you really trying to make a point here. But, I don't know if it's true or not.
but for me, I had BB bold since 2009. which was the best phone I ever had. No other company can offer the same experience. And last year when I am retireing my bb and get a new phone.
I got the HTC X+ , And it's freaking awesome phone.
Why i go htc? because my gf complaint so much of her S3 that always dies on her. lagging browser. bad bad experience she has. sometimes running a game app and it just jumps out to the home screen with no reason.

lol xD I already have the Xperia Z, and I was planning to parading it around all over the neighborhood like Eddie Murphy with an ice cream cone.
And I love the HTC One too! HTC rocks!

chocokaking:vWatch your wording; "fallow" means fertile ground.

I dont know why some of you guys complaining with irrelevant issues. You guys want this..
want that.. but did Phone manufacturer listen to you? You want a premium feel and design for Galaxy line but did Samsung listen?? No! They still same old concept. Whatabout Apple fans?? Did they have a better product or OS? NO!! Its just a advertising and gimmick that make the Product sells. Pls spend you hard earned cash wisely, buy the Phone that you really want not based on advertising or marketing. For me.. HTC ONE is all i want for now because its a different user experience and that is all that matters.

They need to research more or fire their researchers. They make some terrible design decisions.
