I have a total crush on this phone.

Its beautiful design, great display and solid performance have convinced us that the One is among the finest phones you can buy.
HTC is known for making stylish and powerful handsets, and with their latest flagship device, the HTC One, they've not failed to impress.
Experts have praised the "premium feel" of the curved aluminum backplate and the phone's 4.7-inch display which one reviewer calls the "highest screen resolutions ever seen on a smartphone".
The One also earns high marks for its fast, 1.7GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM which helps ensure the HTC Sense 5.0 user interface, with its new BlinkFeed homescreen - which works like the Flipboard app or Windows Phone devices' Live Tiles, runs without a hitch.
One thing that really stands out is the already controversial 4-megapixel camera. While other device-makers have been engaged in a race to increase megapixels, reviewers are applauding HTC for choosing quality over quantity. The HTC One touts the innovative UltraPixels, which improves overall quality and sharpness of images by using larger pixels to capture 300% more light and avoid the high signal-to-noise ratio generated by high-megapixel sensors.
Earning mixed reaction is the 2,300 mAH battery: several reviews say that the higher capacity battery is an improvement over the one found on the One X while others suggest that the battery's still relatively small given the screen size or should at least have been removable to allow for a spare. Another often used criticism for the device was its lack of a microSD card slot. Although, 32 or 64 GB of on-board storage is likely sufficient for most.
Thanks to its sleek design, sheer power, and innovative features, the general consensus is that this Android Jelly Bean-running device stands out from its rivals and should win back Android fans for struggling HTC.

2. Ultrapixel technology trumps rivals when it comes to low-light photography. (The Good)
3. Battery life. (The Bad)
4. Lack of a microSD slot and removable or bigger battery. (The Bad)

A beautiful handset with an amazing screen and innovative camera - an Ultimate smartphone
HTC has pulled off a blinder with the HTC One. It’s a gorgeous phone with a beautiful screen, and we think it's a more desirable handset than the Sony Xperia Z.
Given you can move BlinkFeed out of view, the HTC should appeal to everyone. It will be especially tempting to those who crave the low-light capabilities of its camera. Its metal chassis is also a big selling point - and one, based on past models, that is unlikely to appear on the Samsung Galaxy S4.
Most will be tempted to see that handset before making a choice, but with the HTC One, HTC has a huge conte... Full review
Good looking, good performing phone
The HTC One is still a device worthy of my praise and your hard earned money. Despite not being the newest (or fastest) kid on the block any longer, HTC really pushed for the very best device. It may have cost more to design and manufacture and it may have put more stress on their employees than ever before. But the payoff, a device that is lasting and worth owning many months after it’s release, is a worthy trade-off in my book.
If you’re looking for a new device to call your own this fall/winter season, the HTC One should definitely be on your list. It was a great d... Full review
