It doesn't have an SD card, but it will come in two versions, 32Gb and 64Gb

I think it is a solid upgrade, and if it was available on Verizon I would probably have gotten it instead of the DNA for 3 reasons:

1) It looks better (better build quality maybe)
2) 16GB more storage
3) Larger battery

That being said it's not even available on Verizon not to mention we get the large screen. Our devices are very comparable, the One is just slightly refined. Most of us probably appreciate HTC so it is good to see them thrown out some cool stuff to compete with the Galaxy S4.

I'm not trying to argue, just curious if there is something I'm missing. It seems the M7 is without doubt there top product.

It's SoC is the S600...That thing is significantly faster than the S4 Pro according articles. The DNA or any similar device can't keep up in fluidity.

I love everything about the M7 except the lack of the recent/menu button.
Btw, Verizon users will probably get an upgraded DNA in Q3 with the S800.

You just have to double tap on the home button and the recent apps appear in a multi thumbnail framed format.

Here's something to think about. The One's casing is indeed 100% aluminum. In every previous attempt by a manufacturer to use an all-aluminum housing the result was disastrous for wireless reception. That includes antenna-gate on the Sensation which only had a partial aluminum body. Looking at the casing HTC's either going to try to get a signal through it or the antennas will have to be forward facing to get through the glass front panel. Neither is a recipe for great and/or consistent wireless reception. It'll be interesting to see how the One does once it's tested by sites like GSMArena and Anandtech.

Boy, you would think they would have checked that one out after their last experience and the iphone4 which did tarnish their reputation after users found that signals were being lost and calls dropping out, left, right and center. And that was only for a metal side strip that was interferring with the radios. That would be disaterous for a struggling HTC.

Thanks for pointing this out. I will definetely be waiting for users reviews before taking the plunge on this one, which I was very keen to do so.

All you guys need do to get signal on a phone is cough up forty dollars for a bumper case. And remember if it still doesn't work. Your holding it wrong
