Note from EM - want this as a separate thread, may merge later into Antenna (includes GPS), reception discussion
I have had this phone for 5 days, coming from HTC EVO 4G. I really like HTC One and enjoy the new features. There are only two negative feedback on this phone:
1. The 3G signal strength can drop 20dB if one holds the bottom of the phone. Sprint does not have LTE in my area yet. The antenna for 3G is around the lower white stripe in the back of the phone. By gripping the white strip area, it seems to block the 3G reception. This is similar to the iPhone "death grip" problem a few years ago. When it occurs, the voice quality degrades tremendously.
2. I get my Yahoo mail using HTC One's stock mail app. For each email, I have to press a "Display Images" icon to see the graphics. My HTC Evo 4G does not have this problem. I can't seem to find a solution for it.
I think I will keep the phone.
