    I think he said the slot on one side was for a "nano SD card" and the slot on the other was for the sim card.

    I wish it had a removable battery.

    LG G2 pro, HTC M8, or Sony Experia Z2 - Decisions, decisions, decisions.

    Removable storage is more important to me than a removable battery. I've never owned a phone that I couldn't snap in another battery. I've never owned a phone that I didn't purchase an additional battery for. I can't remember every snapping in another battery.
    I guess it's not so big a deal and certainly not a deal breaker for me. So, if the back doesn't come off, I'm still all over this bad boy.

    One day closer to release date. I'm starting my deep breathing drills.

    I'll probably be picking this up in mid July. Getting tired of my midrange phone... Probably would have gone with gs5 but Knox looks like a pain. I also love the design of the new HTC one according to the leaked vid.

    I've found that phones with removable backs begin to lookb bad over time. Hinges come loose and such.

    I'm out. Next phone will be a Sony or LG. I've owned over 6 HTC flagships, and I'm tired of the same ole same ole. Sense has only slightly changed and the phones have only grown incrementally. The One is the best phone when you really look at the changes, but this company is slowly fading into oblivion.

    I'm actually leaning towards this over the S5. They both look like great phones, and I'm waiting til this actually launches to compare specs. Like someone else mentioned the whole Knox thing may be the difference maker.

    ...did they get fired/sued, or what? Links/proof? I say we start a paypal "fund" to help them out. Sure, he messed up, but in the end, this was GOOD press for the phone/company, and suing them will only harm HTC.

    Noone really knows for sure what happened to them. There were tweets insinutating they got fired from the kid that leaked it, but then someone else tweeted that they weren't. The kid doesn't exactly seem trustworthy to me after reading his tweets so its hard to take him at his word.

    The pics in the first 2 between them show slots on both sides, supporting the SD rumour.

    Hmmm, looks like this will be my upgrade if the timing is right. We'll see. :D

    I'm interested to see what Sprint will offer the phone for, if it even offers this phone. Will we get this phone or a modded version with the Evo brand?

    Regardless, this is a nice looking device, specs aren't too shabby either. Micro SD card slot is a must in my book.

    Going out on a limb and going to say that sale was a scam. The picture on the box is worn and faded and looks like it was photoshopped and made grainy to hide tell-tale artifacts of shopping the pic.

    Not to mention I can't see them naming it the HTC One on the front of the box.

    I'm skeptical about the "all new" htc one sale. The picture does look like a remastered leak picture. Though, the specs look very believable. Still praying they will outdo Samsung with a 2,900 or 3,000 mAh battery. That would be a decision changer for many.

    Chances should be good that this phone will get Android 4.5 Lollipop would you all not think?

    I'm sure it will get the next version of Android. We'll have to wait for that to come out though.
