Default Do you guys think it's worth buying the HTC One?

I really love this new HTC One but I am not sure if it's worth buying it. Do you guys think that HTC is going to release a new phone soon? Something like the HTC One+? Or do you guys think that it will stay the best HTC phone for a longer time.

They are always going to make a better one down the road... just judge if you need a phone now or in a few months...

For me no. No SD card or removable battery is a deal breaker for me. Gonna wait for the GS4. Gotta love that slick metal finish and premium build quality.

They might, or they might not.

If you look at the One X +, the only feature present on that device over the One X is 64gb of ram.

Lets say that they Make a One + - what could they do? Bump it to a Snapdragon 800? Sure that would be impressive, however the jump from 600 to 800 is about a 35% boost, whereas from S4pro to 600 its a 40% bump.

So, is that extra 35% really worth it, when you can wait another few months and get their latest flagship which will probably be a 70% increase over 600?

As far as I'm concerned, rather then waiting for "+" versions, it is wiser to purchase initial releases.

plastic wrap is literally stronger than the back of Samsung phones.
