Summary: At the time of this writing, the phone is impossoble to root if you update it to the most recent Android version.
Pros: I don't know where to start with this amazing device! The screen is crisp and clear. The design is amazing; sturdy and rugged, yet gentle and elegant at the same time. It gets much better reception than my S4, also.
Cons: The phone has more bloatware than any other phone I've seen. About 10GB of the internal storage is used on the apps you'll never use. With (another huge con) the lack of an SD card slot, this is even more of a problem for media lovers.
Summary: I am a very picky person when it comes down to anything that I buy! So hopefully my review appeals to some of you who are kind of like am when buying a product! So lets get down to it! I have owned the phone about a week and I honestly love the phone! The screen is something that first appealed to me and i must say it is very vivid and clear as day! The full aluminum body makes it feel very tough compared to the plastic that many other phones have!
Summary: From the time that I activated the phone I have been very happy with the way that this phone has worked. I am impressed by the sound when I use it to play music and by the quality of the sound during calls. When running apps the speed at which it functions is VERY, VERY good.
Summary: Was not even able to give a review on the phone. It looks good feels good but when you buy a unlocked phone and it want boot passed its Bios screen that clearly says locked in big red letters at the top left what can you do, Now if HTC is sending the seller locked phones they claim are unlocked then its HTC's fault if its the seller doing it then its the sellers fault either way. I get stuck waiting on a refund and another week or two without a smartphone.
Summary: This is NOT a product review (for these you need to use third-party review sites with objective data in each review), this is just a warning for potential customers. If you can buy it elsewhere - do so. HTC themselves sell a "developer edition" of this phone on their site, which has 64GB of storage and is fully unlocked and supports same GSM/LTE bands, for slightly more than Amazon's current price.
Excerpt: HTC One is the most popular mobile from HTC. Its superb range of features and dynamic specs and too good. It has 4.7 inch display, runs on Android 4.1.2 OS, equipped with 4 mega pixel camera and the best part is battery back up.
Summary: This phone is beautiful. The screen is fantastic. The music is cool. Love the speakers. My only complaint is the picture handling. Making folders, or sending. Pictures through text or most picture uses seem really difficult on the HTC One. I do like the thinness of the phone, it feels solid. I'm looking forward to learning to use this phone more effectively. I hope AT&T will start classes for learning and teaching about the devices they sell.
