Default Android ---> Winphone -----> Android

Hello buddies,

i had ages ago a Xperia X10. Bought than Windows Phone HTC 8X. But the battery drain made me crazy. So the 8X was sold, but still in love with HTC. now im still using my Xperia X10, what a good product.....5 years and still running with the same battery......

So i do some research and i think i want the HTC One, it looks gorgeous, is fair priced and has great specs, beside the cam. BUT im a little bit confused about the finish, read a lot about cuts.....misaligned displays and more.

Would you still buy it again ? Do you think i can also use the One at least 3 to 4 years ?

Please give me advice before buying these beauty

Greetings

Hi,

that was not the question and to be clear. Every cam is better than the cam used by my X10 . Its not so important for me, just mentioned that point.

By the way i dont want to spend so much money AND dont want to wait. Just some tips from guys using it all day would be nice.

I would buy again. Mine have no flaws and the cam isn't that bad. Not experienced any issue at all. The most common issue is the camera purp tint. I think newer batch of phones should be fine. I will not say anything about lifespan because at this point its just speculating but the aluminum casing makes the phone seem pretty solid

The assembly of the HTC One is amazing, mine is rock solid and sooo gorgeous, I love it. It should last 3 years easily, the sharpness of the screen is amazing but my camera is horrible, never focuses so I have to use an app with manual focus options in order to snap focused pics. Other than that I love it, but if you really love HTC wait for the M8, it is literally a month down the road. Cheers!

How can you recommand the M8? It'll be at least two months to availability and be twice the current price of the M7.

The HTC One is a great phone and still the phone I would choose if buying a phone today.

Brand new, the m7 is still 400-500. The m8 will just be around the same price.

With regards to the question asked, the HTC One is a great phone. However, since you've waited so long already to get a new phone, I would wait and get the m8. Personally anyways.

I've had my one since just before Christmas. Bought it outright because I don't want to renew my contract when it's up. The phone I had on contract was terrible - acting up really bad; plus contract are far too dear (better value to buy a phone outright and add a giffgaff sim card - if you're in the uk) . I'm confident that the One will last me a good couple years.
