Exterior and Build Quality:
Much has been made in the media of the uni-body metal construction and I have to say that this phone is absolutely beautiful to look at and feels even better in the hand. Of all the 40+ phones I've owned, this one has by far the best quality construction. It just oozes of craftsmanship - from the overall size and placement of controls, to the way it feels in the hand. There is nothing cheap or flimsy about this unit. Buttons and jacks are generally found in the usual places (power and headphone on the top; volume up/down on the right -- sorry lefties; and the microUSB on the bottom) but they feel just 'right'. The only complaint I have about having the microUSB on the bottom is that it makes it difficult to put the phone in the cupholder of the car with the charging cable attached.

Speed:
The Qualcomm 1.7Ghz quad-core Snapdragon CPU just seems to fly through Android 4.2.1 and any of my apps without any hesitation. Even when streaming video while 3 or 4 apps are running in background, there's nary a stutter anywhere. And the touch response is smooth, fast and consistent. I think this thing could handle just about anything.

Screen:
The 4.7inch screen on the ONE is nothing short of spectacular. It's clear, bright, and displays full 1080p HD. Video display is VERY comfortable -- since you've got your own portable HDTV! The automatic display brightness does have some difficulties with bright sunlight outside though.

Battery:
The multi-cell 2300mAh LiIon battery generally lasts through a 24 hour period on my generally light use, even with LTE and BT turned on all the time. I still find GPS and WiFi to be major battery burners. There's no real need for NFC here in Canada (yet), so that's been turned off and I only use WiFi when I'm at home at the end of the day for downloads, updates, etc.

Radios:
Generally, the radios provided with the ONE are as good as most modern smartphones. Cellular coverage is good, WiFi and BT are as good as others. My only disappointment is that the GPS receiver is not quite as sensitive as the one in my 8X. The 8X can get location fixes inside buildings, where the ONE struggles until it gets outside.

Camera:
There has already been a lot written about HTC's Ultrapixel camera used in the ONE. From practical experience, I can say that the pictures produced by the ONE are excellent in normal light situations and vastly improved in low light. Pictures are sharp with good colour saturation and generally good exposures. Taking the unit out of 'auto' mode helps a lot! For the front facing camera, the pictures are generally good, but I still can't seem to get the hang of not having it look like it was taken with a fish-eye lens :-)

Sound:
Beats Audio combined with HTC's BoomSound on the ONE is nothing short of amazing for smartphone audio. While it will never compete with component stereos, etc. the sound output is way more powerful than most phones and I think they've tuned the Beats Audio much better with this unit.

Apps provided by HTC:
HTC provides Sense5 and BlinkFeed as their own overlays to the standard Android interface. To be honest, I didn't see much of Sense5 -- other than the time and weather widgets on the lockscreen and the top of the Home screen. BlinkFeed on the other hand, seems be HTC's response to livetiles on WP8. Provides a customizable, updateable summary feed of everything going on in your calendars, social and news feeds.

While the phone's aluminum back felt cold and uninviting, it felt like a premium device in contrast to Samsung's products. The phone felt well built and seemed like it could take a couple of unplanned nose-dives towards the floor. Power this baby up and see the screen light up as the eye candy factor skyrockets. Just as the S4 and Xperia Z and newer phones coming out, the screen is fantastic. I won't compare screens because well...Our eyes can't see all of those pixels.
The one has (as I'm sure you've heard) really loud, front facing speakers. Maybe a bit too loud. Nonetheless for a phone they're quite good, but don't raise it up all the way as the quality may deteriorate.
Call quality was good as the caller and receiver could communicate exceptionally well. Although signal could be better inside buildings, that's kind of T-Mobile's fault. In NYC the data speeds on T-Mobile's 4G LTE are really fast and reliable. WiFi is consistent on the HTC One.
The Camera takes really great photos, both at night and during the day time. I really liked ZOE as it allows you to record a 3 second video and then choose the perfect frame to be used as a photo which is really useful when motion is involved. You can also try the burst feature which after taking several photos will choose the best, clear optimized photo for you. Although you can still review the photos yourself and save one, or several of them. Photos taken at night are clear due to more light being received by the photo, and any professional photographer will tell you that light exposure on the set is much more important than the megapixel count. This certainly makes the camera stand out in those dark situations. What I found a bit disappointing was recording in the dark. The clarity received in night time photos was not brought over in videos. Zoe wasn't helpful at night either. I also found that when taking a ton of photos, the battery depleted faster and the phone eventually got hot when consistently taking snapshots and using Zoe. The brightness of the phone also rose when using the camera.
Speaking about hot phones, when using 4G data, GPS, Google maps and Navigator the aluminum heats up quite nicely. Seriously play hot potato with this thing. No, not really. On a 4 hour road-trip I had to keep the phone plugged in and charging as the battery would slowly but surely drain without it. It held up quite nicely tho, it got hot and played some tunes on Google Music while pointing us in the right direction and charged slowly. On a regular basis I can have about 55-45% battery left at night (9pm). This is great since I may power on the phone at 6:30 or 7AM. This is with alternations of data and WiFi and around 2 hours and 30 minutes of on time and about an hour and 30 minutes of music. I've also been able to have the phone idle all day (with WiFi, Data, Bluetooth, and GPS turned off), gotten home at around 7PM and then squeezed out a screen time of about 5 hours and 30 minutes doing mixed things with WiFi consistently on and end up with about 10% battery left.
While I did find blink feed to be intriguing plenty of times, sometimes it held no article that grabbed my attention, thus making it superfluous especially when I use Google currents and Tapatalk. Therefore to rid myself of blinkfeed I downloaded Nova launcher and personalized the phone to my liking. Love this phone.

I have always had an iphone till i decided to get out from under the stranglehold that verizon had me under. So i needed a new phone, I went to a store to handle the samsung and htc and all that was out. The htc had a good size screen, is highly rated and is made out of quality products compared to the other options out there. It just feels good in your hand. After recieving phone, it is different than iphone.. the only complaint I have is that I cant take screen shots.. which was a great benefit of iphone. the camera on the htc is pretty cool, functions quite different as i can hold down button and take sequential action photos. something you wont see on iphone. I think if apple comes out with iphone that is decent priced and bigger screen I would switch back. But this is a great choice for those who prefer android. I was pleasantly suprised that I could transfer my stuff from itunes to my htc phone.. not apps, but music, contacts, pictures.. so I didnt have to lose everything by switching :) I think I chose the best android phone after all the research I did on the phone, reading reviews, specifications. You will be happy with this phone if you buy it. I still dont know a whole lot about what the phone can do, but im learning daily, that is part of the fun of getting a new phone. I also notice resell value stays high on this phone. if its in good condition you can resell for just about what you buy for.

HTC one. Pretty happy with this phone, display is just the right size, camera is one of the best parts of the phone and all the features it comes with. Highly recommended specially if you are looking for a phone where you can watch videos and movies time to time, and capture great moments on high quality.
