    It's been what, 7 months now? And I'm still very impressed by this phone. Anybody else with me?

    First of all, it compares very favorably with pretty much any new device. The size is great. The phone is slim enough. But it's the build quality, look and feel that just put it above any other Android phone out there, and it's really not close. On the software side, Sense 5 exhibits a sheen and polish that has not been matched. The screen is still amazing. The phone is still fast. And best of all, HTC is on the ball with updates - getting 4.3 fast, and now committing to a speedy 4.4 launch, while Samsung isn't even thinking about it yet. 32 gigs of onboard is great. The speakers rule. Little things, like the wide front facing camera, are very handy.

    The downsides are few, but still there. The notification light needs to be more... noticeable. Lack of quick-charge is a sore point. And lastly, the camera. It's lacking, period. Mine has been plagued with the purple tint issue, which pretty much renders it unusable in most conditions. Honestly, HTC should ditch the "ultra-pixel" tech in favor of a more straightforward camera approach. The Zoes and highlights will still carry them to the camera crown.

    The One is still a great device and usually on my recommended list. The One Mini and One Max could have been better IMO.

    I completely agree, OP. Still loving this device, and that says a lot for me who likes to change devices frequently.

    Still loving mine too, it reminds me of my old Windows HTC HD2, two years down the line, and it still seemed good. The build quality was great.
    The One will be a phone to remember. Just occasionally these masterpieces come along.
    I can forgive the camera problems, the charging whilst using navigation in the car, and a few other things.
    A total masterpiece.

    I still LOVE this phone! And this is coming from a guy who went through 10 smartphones in a three year period because I kept getting bored with devices. The build quality of the One compared to other phones on the market is simply outstanding and I have become totally spoiled by the front facing stereo speakers. And the nice thing is that HTC is rolling fast with system updates so I don't have "version envy" and thus reduces the urge to upgrade any time soon.

    The phone is exceptional, Sprint service hinders the device, wish I would have switched carriers, the experience would be so much better.

    Yep, still the best phone I have ever had, although I disagree with the camera - mine is excellent. Super quick too, which is sooo important. And great low-light. I love my HTC One! Can't wait to get Sense 5.5 and 4.3!

    It's good to hear a lot of you guys (and girls) still talking this way about the One. I've been debating on getting one, but every one I see has some defect (screen not flush or gaps by the power button). Does everyone have one or both of these problems or are they fixed now? I'm on Verizon.

    Every one I looked at had some noticeable, maybe only to me and my OCD :-), issue, mostly with the gaps at the top.

    Battery life is my only issue but I'm a heavy user. Everything else about this phone is great. I wish it got the attention it deserves.

    I loved mine up until the 4.3 update. From then on battery life and performance went downhill.

    First of all, I don't know what I'll do with out the front facing speakers. My wife just got an LG G2, and it wasn't until I played a video on her phone that I was reminded how good the speakers were.
    My build quality is flawless, but after I exchanged it for another one after launch day. Never experienced any negative issues on the camera. I feel my battery lasts a long time, though I wish I had my wife's G2 battery life. I also haven't noticed any problems after the 4.3 update. All in all I'm still happy with my One, however I love new phones and am always looking at the latest and greatest.

    I've had the One for a few months now, and I'm still in love with it. Usually, when new devices are released right after I upgrade, I'll experience a little buyer's remorse, but not this time. It will take a lot for me to part with the gorgeous One and its front-facing speakers. And I don't have any issues with the camera.

    I wonder how the upcoming HTC "M8" will compare...

    I have only had the One for a month now and love it. I do not see anything out now that I just have to have instead.

    I was on the Note 2 bandwagon initially, but the phablet thing wore off quick.
