The Devil's Advocate
Just some food for thought about the HTC One. Is it, hardware wise, a great phone? Yes and no. If anything goes wrong with it, you can't fix it. If the battery goes, you can't replace it. ( see the Ifixit teardown). When it works, is it good? Yes it is really good.....but, the OS will be a year old soon.
My problem is that this company only made $1.8 million last quarter. Is this the company that will push updates, honor warranties, and basically even stay in business? Some manufacturing defects are starting to show up, like bad GPS, etc. Will there be other defects showing up? Who knows, but I am worried that HTC doesn't have the resources to carry this thing through.
Unfortunately, I think I am going to wait this one out.
