I don't like this at all. I prefer the HTC One design way better. The upper speaker is ugly compared to the one below. I don't like it in gold either :(

It's BEAUTIFUL, and I'm also a huge fan of htc, but that bezel simply needs to GO! Just look at the usable area (above the virtual keys) of the screen and compare it to the entire phone, the amount of bezel is RIDICULOUS!!

Will be overall better than the S5! So beautiful!

Have to agree. I have always felt the One was a better all around phone than S5.

I must say, HTC nailed it with this One. Make one in bronze!

I don't like this One, really. This One doesn't look that sexy, and that is One big bezel and awfully rounded corners.

I was expecting something 'WoW' but to be honest HTC One actually seems successor to this thing. I'm waiting for official announcement and if HTC really has something like this I'll stay with my HTC One until iPhone 6 launch.

Although the phone looks good, it still isn't better in terms of design when it comes to the OG One
Plus "The All New HTC One" is far better than "HTC One Two"

I'm not an HTC fan, but the phone looks nice, hopefully it will take better pictures

I think that is what the twin cameras on the back are for.

Honestly looks really ugly. I've always preferred boxy designs

Nah, I would prefer the gray or silver version

Phone looks good, but the HTC logo at the bottom of the screen is wasted space. This was an issue for many of us last year, and this year they've double down on it by using on screen buttons and leavinf their useless logo in place of what could have been more visible screen space. Bad move IMO, but I'm sure the general consumer won't mind it.

I hope its not real...look creepy in gold...and design is worst than last year! On screen buttons and tall bottom bezel for htc logo makes no sense...htc will be criticized for screwing up what was best design of last year!

Excellent evolution of the original design IMO. Also, I don't really understand why people are complaining about the bezels. Sure they could have been smaller but the speakers are much more important to me then trimmed downed bezels. Also, they still pale in comparison to the Sony & Nokia phones. Can't wait to see this side by side with the S5!

Hard to say if I like this. Looks too much round for my taste but it might be more ergonomic for use. I would like the gold but I think I will have to see videos of this device before I can say I like it. After all its not all about the looks.

All of the htc one beauty is gone... All changes are for worse. It's so round, just like samsung. Where's htc style??? I still hope this is fake...

Yuk. Do not want. Htc one x was a beautiful design (crap phone but beautiful design) i doubt i'll buy another htc especially when they keep putting large bezels on flagships

Wtf do you people want???What bezels?I personaly don't care if my phone has 0.0005' less bezels,far more important is the screen,i use my phone a lot for watching youtube so yes the speakers do matter.I think HTC has nailed it this time,they enhanced their original htc one design and made it better,apple does it every 2 years why can't HTC?+ for all of you complaining about the HTC logo on the front this is a 5' phone so it will be the same as GS5 in terms of dimensions. Just hope the get the camera right this time.

It's design mate, design. Screen is another matter and we cannot see it right now.

I think design is awesome,the thing is that these days when someone starts bashing a certain thing online everybody joins them,well not me,i think that the bezels on this phone are super and the htc logo on the front genius.

Does it have ir blaster? I might forgive the stupid screen size issue with the black HTC logo if it has an ir blaster. If not a Galaxy note 3 is in my future or more waiting.

My next phone will either be this or Z2 or iPhone 6 or G3. Though Samsung is pretty good, after having to replace my s3 three times, I'm pretty annoyed.

Ok can someone please answer my questions . First, why would you wait all the way until March 25th to officially announce it after so much has been leaked (if these leaks are accurate). Second, I don't know if my eyes are giving out on me, but are the speaker grills unequal?
