Excerpt: The HTC One answered all my wishes for a smartphone. Beautiful, high quality, solid metal, unique design. Fantastic, sharp screen. Amazing sound. Beautiful camera. Flexible, modern UI that has consistently improved. 2 Day battery life. HTC providing Android updates.
Summary: Most late model cellphones today are good. I choose the HTC one for its unsurpassed build quality and screen resolution. There are none better on the market. It's a pleasure to live with this phone. I suppose the 8M is better then the M7 but for my needs I can't justify the price difference. The M7 does all I need to do plus many things I don't know how to do. I've had mine for a year and it has not failed me once. My wife recently moved up to this phone from her Iphone.
