Default New HTC One - Should I sell it?

Hi all,

I bought the HTC One yesterday, I got a good deal cut price of 210 I'm in the UK (London). I previously had the Nexus 4, but I wanted something better looking, this phone certainly fits the bill. I posted on the suggest device thread before, most recommended the HTC One a week ago.

Today, I'm reading some threads in the HTC One section and it looks scary the amount of problems all kinds people are experiencing.

What is the root of all these problems? Is it to do with custom ROMs? I'm a simple user, I've never used anything but default/STOCK what the phone comes with.

The phone is still brand new. Should I sell it next week, get my money back and buy a Nexus 5?

If I don't update to 4.4.2 will it be safe to use?

Please advise, asap, thanks.

I'm referring to posts like cracking sounds with the speaker, loud speaker turning on by itself, purple tint on camera.

If you don't mod your phone, it's unlikely you'll run into any of the problems people here talk about. Get the Nexus 5 if you want it, but don't sell the One just because people have a lot of problems with it. It's a really great device and you just bought it so not really worth it.
