Software updates coming quickly from HTC... are you joking?
4.3 and Sense 5.5 has not even been sent out OTA yet here in the UK and now we are on 4.4... so we will get that about this time next year then from HTC officially!!!!

I'm thinking of doing it, but not sure yet.
Don't get me wrong I love the One, but getting a new device is always exciting.

I would say no.
I was very keen on getting a Nexus 5.. was sat waiting for the official release online on Thursday, kept refreshing websites etc, but over the weekend I have totally changed my mind as like others have said, the only real big advantage is 4.4, Snapdragon 800 and quick to receive updates.
HTC One is only a little behind on speed, has higher dpi and far far better speakers. Now I like the latest version of Android asap and hate waiting, so here is what I did today and would suggest to others.. I converted my HTC One to a Google Play Edition. I now have a nice clean install, no bloatware, OTA updates, so I should receive my 4.4 update when it rolls out in i believe about 2 weeks, maybe less.
I didn't use blinkfeed or Zoes or any of that stuff so losing Sense 5.5 is no loss for me.
I have a nice warm feeling inside now that my HTC One is soon to be just as good as the Nexus 5 when I get 4.4, until then, I can handle it being a little under par...
