Quote:
I've never given any smartphone an editors choice award before, though I daily regret not giving the One S an award of some kind. For the HTC One I'm giving our Editors Choice Gold award, which is our second highest award. The One is an incredibly awesome device

I'm a big fan of the HTC One and can see myself using it for quite a while, even without seeing necessarily everything of its main upcoming contenders. It's a device which amazingly is built to the kind of specifications I'd want from a device — huge emphasis on camera, all metal construction with actively tuned antennas, and a powerful SoC inside.

Most other retailers also mention the 15th of march. It's probably just a PR thingy for Vodafone - I don't expect them to sell many devices, it's just to create some buzz. But I'm not sure whether the info is correct as they seem to be the only ones doing it, which is strange. However, it seems that the information comes from Vodafone directly.

On a different note, I have a question regarding the speakers:

Consider being on a call, talking, when suddenly you receive an SMS with maxed out volume. Wouldn't that make your head explode as one of the speakers is directly at your ear?!?!

Just saw your post on Hamdir's thread. I will follow his thread regularly and from now I follow this too.
I will get the device as soon as it was released, thinking of my one x, whether to keep it or sell it. If the price was <700 usd, I will keep my one x. Just now OneX development is getting better and the device is so smooth after JB, so can't sell it.

I am worried about it, too... It was like that on a mobile phone I once had. However I guess HTC will use the proximity sensor to turn down the volume to a safe level.

I just hope they thought about it (this would be the perfect solution actually - just turn off the upper speaker completely).
