Excerpt: This is the first smartphone I have used, and I was hesitant to get it due to the lack of expandable storage and rather small battery. If those two factors don't bother you, then this might be a pretty nice phone for you. One thing I MUST mention is that if you do not have Beats Audio turned on, then your phone will actually make the music sound worse than it actually is.
Pros: Gorgeous Display, Verizon's Coverage, Build Quality (Except Screen), Will Get KitKat In First Quarter of 2014
Cons: BATTERY, No MicroSD Card Slot, Very Little Storage included in phone (10 GBs usable), Slow To Receive Updates, Beats Audio (Kind of), Screen Easy To Crack, Brightness Doesn't Go Very Low
Excerpt: so far, in less than 2 years on Verizon. I have had over 30 phones, all of which have problems, the DNA is no exception. Not at bad as the GS3 or the Razr, but still a pain to live with. Verizon has offeren no solution or fix for me, simply stating that "Its supposed to do that" even after demonstrating time and time again the flaws with all the phones i've had thus far.
Pros: Large screen, Quad Core, less than $50 on contract
Cons: Bad WiFi, Bad Bluetooth, Bugs In Sense UI, Poor graphics, No SD card slot, Plastic is cheap, Verizon phone (ya thats a con for me)
Excerpt: I bought this device yesterday in China, and I have found it somewhat dissapointing. The hardware is nice, but the software is not too integrated or flexible. For instance, why is there no Google Play Store, and HTC Marketplace is in Chinese? For us non-Chinese speaking people, the market place is useless! Standard google apps like gmail is missing!
Summary: Friends don't worry about the price.Wait for 2-3 weeks from here,surely the price will may be coming down around Rs.32000/- . It had dropped the price of one X & one X+ and its time for butterfly,because it is ready with its Flagship one..so wait with patience untill htc one is available in all local & online stores. The features of this phone were cool except the price Hope this is usefull.
Summary: HTC has built some excellent phones, starting with its small phone HTC explorer to the HTC one S. The build quality of the HTC one S is excellent and HTC seems much more expensive and better built than Samsung. However once, you go beyond the Rs. 30,000 price. There are much better phones available. Iphone 5 even with its small screen is a joy to use.
