    Just to emphasise, he also says this is the first time he's given a smartphone an editor's choice award.

    Ok, that just clinched it for me. :D After reading that Anandtech review, I am clearly back in the One camp for my upcoming purchase.

    Wow, what a review!

    A quote from someone else about this review:

    Quoted for truth!

    Same here, I was probably gonna get the one anyway but after reading that review, I am as excited as I could ever be. I can't wait until the 19th, only 12 more days to go.

    I was yelling at the screen for him to remove the stock messaging app from the launcher inside of the App drawer.... He didn't hear me.

    Wow, probably the worst software tour I've seen for any device. It's as if he went it to the video already with huge bias against HTC. He sounded very annoyed like he shouldn't be the one that's tasked to perform this review.

    Seems worthless to mention this after the Anandtech review, but the Verge have followed-up their earlier rushed hack job, sorry, "review", with another one on the ATT version. HTC One for AT&T: the best Android phone yet? | The Verge

    Different reviewer, slightly higher score and the reviewer was clear that he liked it a lot. People here still seem to get much better battery life than Verge reviewers though (comparing "daily use" rather than run-down tests, though the Verge don't actually say what they do with it when they say it lasts them through the day but not into the evening).

    Minimal branding, but does contain annoying ATT crapware.

    I'm amazed at some of the reviews of this handset based on the battery, it gets marked down on techradar for it too... I've had as much as 40hrs without charge, wifi on all the time, no power saving and when my use settles down it could be even more. I don't know what the reviewers are doing to run the battery down so quickly but it really isn't an accurate reflection.

    More extremely positive reviews keep on pouring in.

    From Mashable:


    From Gdgt:

    HTC One (2013) review by peter - gdgt

    As a result gdgt awarded its highest rating ever to the HTC One and rated it as the best smartphone it has reviewed.

    Found a couple of recent somewhat critical reviews. Lets face it, it can't be a lovefest every time but it's nice to see what other folk have picked up on and are focussing on.

    From an Indian site called Tech2. They did give it an Editors Choice award though:

    HTC One Review

    From Wired:

    Review: HTC One Android Phone for AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile

    Are their criticisms justified? The Wired review in particular is ridiculous i feel.

    I've long thought Wired as being in left field anyway, so I take anything they say with less than a grain of salt. That review just reaffirmed my less than favorable opinion of them.

    From Wired -

    As I've thoroughly debunked that in another recent post in this forum with actual figures, I elected to not waste my time further on an article founded on bold-faced lies by a yellow journalist selling sensationalism and trying to cash in by spreading his own pathetic ignorance.

    An amazingly positive review from Android Police. Absolutely loved the phone and a top-notch review to boot. Good stuff!

    When your review starts with that one sentence you know you have to read until you reach the very end.

    Question, is Sprint going to change theirs to the Evo like they did the One X from last year or is that a total separate line? Will there even be another Evo because I thought I heard that HTC was trying to only use one brand of top tier phones?

    Unlike years past, the Sprint website is referring to this as the One. This might mark the end of the Evo brand, we'll see.

    BTW, long time no see! :)
