Personally, I really like the design, and the dual speakers on the front. I read somewhere that you can remove the Blinkfeed to go back to generic Sense homescreens, which will be nice. The Blinkfeed feature to me honestly is too similar to Windows Phone and Flipboard, almost like a combination of the two.

The MAJOR drawback for me is the camera. 20 photos and a 3-second video when you press the shutter button? That's cool and I all, but I only take videos if I NEED a video... I don't want little 3 second videos scattered around my phone, along with 20 pictures from that timeframe, Just seems... Overdone. Hopefully there's a way to go back to stock camera functions. The Sense 4+ camera is perfect IMO.

Other than that, I think I'll look into getting it, since AT&T owes me an early upgrade after sending me SIX consecutive defective One X's.

The Zoe camera function is not used every time you take a picture. Only when you click the Zoe button. That would be a little absurd to have all that crap going on for every picture.

Now that's something worth waiting for

I definitely love what they did with the One apart from the multitasking button, or lack thereof.

Blinkfeed ccan be removed by simply choosing other scene in settings (like a profile), I saw it in a video. I'm tempted but first wanna see the battery life.

Re: HTC One. I like the look of ours better
Most of the hardware looks nice other than the hardware buttons. What was their thinking behind that? Either give us on screen buttons or give us 3/4 buttons! You can give us two buttons!
