HTC are known for delayed updates, releasing sources very late and of course, needing to void your warranty to unlock the bootloader.
As gorgeous as their phones are, they are not very developer friendly....
I have lost love for HTC

+1....!!!!!

And not forgot to mention that HTC is like a bully. Try to read HTC's post on the XDA News and you probably regret buying HTC's phone 'cus the late update, Realy (realy) hate AOSP Developers, and not to mention the phones suck in Indonesia (the price ain't cheap and hard to earn it). And now I realy hate HTC when I saw the news about them bringing AOSP developer to the court.

I Was looking forward to the XZ for some time before release, but when I started looking into the HTC One, my mind was changed.

The on-screen buttons are their permanently even when playing games, which reduces the screen size to that of the One. The call quality is reportedly muffled and also when looking at it in the shop it certainly looks nice, but the quality wasn't as great as I thought it would be.

The One beats it in EVERY aspect apart from being water resistant, I've never EVER dropped a phone in water or had the need to text in the rain so not something I need.

Also the Screen on the One is noticeably superior. I know if you've bought the XZ you'll defend it to the hilt, It is a great phone but the HTC One is just that bit better.

Please don't talk about something you obviously have no clue about.

FYI, call quality on the XZ is excellent. Far better than the P.O.S. HTC phones I've previously owned.

If the only people that posted on this forum knew what they were talking about, then there'd be no need for anyone to post.

However, as I said it's clear you'd defend the unit no matter how unhappy you are with what's released after it.

EDIT: Reading this back I sound like I'm trolling, which isn't my intention. The XZ is clearly a great phone, just not AS good as the one (for me), however someone with different needs to myself (like you) would prefer the XZ.

Yup, different strokes for different folks. I need the waterproofing a lot more than the HTC "Boomsound"...
