Want an HTC One with removable back cover, microSD and two SIM slots? China has one for you!

It really makes us wonder why HTC rarely graces its phones with stuff like a microSD card slot. Its latest flagship, the HTC One, is a perfect example. Most often, we tend to explain this with things like the metal unibody design and the straightforward experience, but hey, it turns out that it is possible to have microSD in the HTC One... along with a removable back cover and two SIM slots...

"All drama aside, we'd really want to know why HTC didn't go the extra mile and put a microSD slot in the global HTC One. That would have made it an even better handset, right?"

We can see RayS prefer non uninody and plastic back cover. Me too.

yes, so?? dont you prefer the "unibody" with no cover, non removable battery and no sd card slot?? maybe it is his personal preference like eveybody, like you and me or maybe not..i think his just pointing out something what people miss, like he did with the s 4 when he said something about the design...i wrote "unibody" because on the drop test video, the part that covers one speaker of the One poped out after the first drop.

And I also believe the Chinese version has a normal 8MP camera...

iPhones don't require microSD cards so I don't see why it's a problem if a phone doesn't have a slot for one.

you really need new material, your saying honestly a micro sd slot wouldn't be a welcome addition?

your just willing to accept whatever the iphone has and anything it lacks you convince yourself isnt needed little troll

Something like Motorola has been doing, some opening on the sides or somewhere that you could insert a Micro-SD in would be perfect! Unibody and micro-sd capable.....

throw a micro SD slot in, a replaceable battery, a better camera, and bring it to Verizon and I'd buy the HTC One over the S4 in a minute...but with all of that lacking? S4 it will be.

So the HTC loses the only perceived advantage over the S4 in the unibody design...fail.

once upon a time a sad little fanboy would go on all HTC articles to try to hate and get attention..........everyone laughed at how pathetic he was and obsessed with what he claimed to hate

im writing a story about the stereotypical fanboy i.e. you

go take you hateful bs elsewhere, this actually means the s4 looses its big advantage of a micro sd card and the HTC one is more appealing

so you fail

If they had a micro SD slot then they wouldn't be able to charge more for a larger capacity version. It's all business. Wish they wouldn't do it though.

So sad, the HTC One could have been a contender.

Instead this will be it's lot in life, "It looks nice, but..."

They should go back to the Nexus One days, That had replacable battery, microSD card slot, but looked unibody, and the plastic felt great.
