here is a good htc one review
idk, he doesnt go on to say anything more then any other review, and misses an opportunity to show us a good comparison between cameras.
the other thing that bugs me is this is yet another review with conflicting "HTC told me" data.
This isn't a professional review per se in of itself,but some good news regarding BEST BUY getting behind the marketing of the ONE(w/video review as well,via C-NET):
HTC One looks great. But will anyone care? | Mobile - CNET News
Here's the HTC One official launch video -
here is a good one of the camera and ZOE features
Sense 5 from the same source as above.
This is the first phone that has made me want to upgrade my Desire HD.
If only I could have the spec of the Galaxy S4, looks and build quality of the HTC, and waterproof capability of the Xperia Z it would be perfect
What you've explained would be the perfect phone. This is what we all want haha. I'm about to pre order the
HTC One, knowing that the Galaxy S4 will almost surely be announced this month.
The HTC One seems like the perfect phone for me. Also, I don't want a phone that everyone else has, or I'd wait for the S4.
I found this article/review to be well written,striking a nice balance between informative w/o delving too deep into the TECHESE, touching on all the features of the ONE:
HTC One: First Impressions - Mobile Phone | ThinkDigit Features
Shouldn't there be more hands-on reviews by now, with this thing set to release in only a week?
If anybody speaks German...
I used Google translate, but didn't get much out of it.
Still a nice comparison video in any language.
Although benchmarks tell only part of the story,the screen looks like it's quite a bit better than the other models in the comparison,especially the SONY model.
I do have to hand it to SAMSUNG, no buttons on the display.I wish this were the case w/the ONE.That's about the only checkmark I have in the negative column,otherwise,all else looks great.
How does that even work, with only one hardware button?
There's a back & menu key on either side of the home button.
Here is an unusual benchmark:

One of the most exciting things I read in the article is:
The article also stated that another home screen could be set as default for those of us not completely enamored with BlinkFeed. All in all, a positive review which solidifies my decision for this phone.
Here is an even better review. This one has an "alleged" benchmark against the Galaxy S4, where they are nearly completely identical.

Also from this article, with regards to battery:
One more review of the Haych TC One, before I go to bed:
HTC One Review: Top Of The Premium Pops?
Not a review yet, but a promise of one. Androidcentral have received their review sample: HTC One is in the house | Android Central
Original post is a dead link.
Replaced with one from same source, overall similar to original.
I'd seen this on HTC's website,thought it'd be a nice how-to & answer some potential FAQ's,especially for those new to HTC:
Get Started with the HTC One; easy phone setup from your computer | ZDNet
Not to just overlook all the positive aspects of this phone, because I can see them, (SLCD3!, beautiful Unibody design!, new Camera, Sense 5, etc.)
...But WHY, why, why, do we have to play musical chairs buttons every year?
I don't expect things to be exactly the same each and every year. There is some room for flexibility here, but a little more consistency would go along way. I know this is petty stuff but dropping a functional button for a pointless logo is absolutely frustrating. I don't really love the bandied about idea of having no physical buttons, in favor of on screen buttons, but If you go so far as to dropping one button and using the real estate for a logo, you may as well just drop ALL buttons.
Speaking of buttons...
As Aliveon2legs mentioned in one of these threads around here (I hadn't even realized/thought of it until he mentioned it.) Why no camera shutter button, HTC? Even if it required a few more prep minutes and difficult cuts on the CNC machine, plus a little extra software programming, it would be a very worthy investment on what is supposed to be considered a high-end phone. A camera button would be 'icing on the cake', however I assert that 'icing on the cake' is pretty much a requirement when you are purposefully building a high-end device and "going all in" with it.
So as to remain on-topic I bring to this thread yesterdays TechnoBuffalo content:
The Verge's review of the HTC One:
HTC One review | The Verge
Going by the comments section underneath it seems they didn't do as much reviewing as they could have and more importantly wanted to be the first tech site to have the first review up of the phone. Shame, and frankly i agree.
In the review itself he even has a disclaimer saying:
The Verge is a major commercial tech site which attracts a LOT of hits. If they're going to do a definitive review the phone they should be reviewing should at least be the final release model.
