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.


I think you have a typo there 64gb RAM then you got a deal! Also 800 snapdragon not only boosts the performance by 40% it also has a better GPU, better architecture, better power management, implemented ad on WIFI so it's now a/ac/ad/b/g/n and has LTE technology which has a maximum of 150mbit speed.

HTC always tends to refresh their flagships at around October-November.
Desire -> Desire HD
Sensation - Sensation.. XE? XL? I got em confused...
One X -> One X+

I think it will be the same this year.
That said, for me, buying the One is an easy decision. As usual, there are a few things I dislike that might or might not be fixed for the refresh, but isn't that always the case? I definitely don't imagine anything on the horizon beating it in terms of industrial design and sheer engineering chops.

Is it worth it? Yeah why not, just get another phone when a newer one comes out. Who wouldn't have $700 to buy a phone every month?

Re: Do you guys think it's worth buying the HTC One?
You never told us what your using currently. I am using a one xl and I'm really on the fence.

I wish my one x had better louder speakers and I am impressed with the Ones camera.

I love the design and the extra capacity. (16gb is not enough for me). Will definitely opt for the 64gb variant if I do get one.

With that said, I'm not going to jump the gun right away.

Must be patient... Must resist the temptation to get it day 1 of release.

My s3 flew in my car when i made a hard turn, and it made a scratch on the plastic.

My s2 dropped and it ruined the body. hell it was only 2 feet.

Anything wrong for people to wait and compare? Why do guys think that someone with the different perspective is wrong?

BTW, how many Samsung Galaxy S-series doesn't have any sd slot and removable battery? If history is of any indication, they will be present even in upcoming models.

This question allways comes up when a new phone comes out. But only you can answer that. The great thing about Android is the wide varieties in phones, this is great because we all prefer something else.

I got a one S and will upgrade as soon as I can. Allways been a fan of the aluminium body's, love the oneS except it's screen. So this is the perfect phone for me.

There will always come a faster and better phone. But I'm sure this device is quite future proof. Alot More so than the Sony Z. The only thing that can kick the One of this throne now is the GS4, but I really really doubt it.

I'm convinced that this is THE phone of 2013

The only thing I've read about it is that HTC got an new production process which makes the aluminium even harder than that used in the iphone 5.

Not if, just When
I'll be buying a One. Just waiting until April for my contract to end with Vodafone and see if Three will offer the "One" with a 12month contract option. If not i'll just buy the phone and get a sim only, will still be cheaper in the long run than a 24month contract. That way I wont be stuck with the same contract for 2 years..
