OK so I got a new HTC One and so far I love it in all aspects except... the following:
With a headset plugged in to the headphone jack (earbuds with in-line mic and button) any amount of jostling or rotation of the plug in the jack causes my phone to skip songs, stop playing music, and begin redialing the last call in my call log. This issue makes the phone practically unusable for listening to music, as even the slightest shaking of the plug (i.e. from phone in pocket while walking, movement of headphone cord from turning head left or right while sitting still, etc) causes problems.
I thought it was a problem with the individual device I got so T-Mobile was nice enough to send me a new HTC One...
And it has the exact same problem.
I have tried several different headsets with button and mic. Notably, all of the headsets with mic I've tried all work flawlessly on all other devices.
Has ANYONE had this problem?
Note that I Intend to record a video of the problem for evidence, but I'm pretty convinced its a design flaw in the HTC One.
At this point I have all intention to go with a different device, as much as that pains me to say (probably the Xperia Z)
EDIT2: After some experimentation, I have discovered the problem. It is a ridiculous design flaw on the part of HTC. I will post pictures later along with videos. In theory it can be remedied with a new set of headphones of a certain style or possibly some electrical tape or other insulating material, but I really don't think that should be a requirement of using the HTC One.
EDIT4: See here for my post on reddit with a description of what I believe to be the cause of this problem: http://www.reddit.com/r/htcone/comme...h_the_htc_one/
