    Default It is still time to buy an HTC one ?

    Hi, this is my first post in android central, before i registered in crackberry
    as my topic says... it is still time to get and htc one?

    I'm coming from an blackberry 9810 torch, the slider with keyboard, which had been useful for me for 1 year or so...
    But lastly, the age is showing, and I need communications apps like skype, wechat, and "silence shooting camera",

    Most of what I've do is typing and listening to voice msg... and talking in skype (like 2-3 hours a day mostly) and text messaging all the day
    I've tried check onto the galaxy s4 because of the multi window capability which i'm highly interested in, but ... I don't want an s4 because everyone have it... but I have no other option, i think i'll get it, since it'll be useful for me to txt msg and have an open dictionary on the other screen to save me time...

    But the htc review, the thing the interest me the most is the loudspeaker, and the FM radio, and also when i tried the htc vs the s4, i was able to write more proficiently on the one that on the galaxy, but i don't know if that's an software issue that I can resolve

    Obviously, iphone is out of the question (I have an ipad and I don't like it that much)
    Blackberry can't be because of other apps that I need to add

    Plus, the other part is, syncing phone numbers, which used to dissappear on the blackberry(and I've read that the contacts are dissappearing on the newer z10 too, and dissappearing contacts is not an option..)

    So.... yeah.. thanks for your reading and any positive input is appreciated

    Whichever one you get, you may always wonder if you should have gotten the other one :>)
    For me, I couldn't make up my mind between the S4 and the HTC One until I went to Costco and tried them out side by side.
    I immediately chose the One over the S4. Just better, IMHO.
    Play with both phones in the store and go with your gut feeling.

    Well, coming from your device the One will seem like a brand new world for you.
    It's a great device. The sound is excellent so this should help you.
    Contacts disappearing never happens.
    About typing I don't believe there is much difference between the One and the S4. And have in mind that there are many keyboard apps in Android that will help you.
    I went to the One from a Palm Pre 2 with a physical keyboard. I still can't type correctly on the touch screen (I make enough mistakes) but word correction and prediction make me type very fast with no fuss. Swiftkey for example will help you.

    The HTC One is a wonderful device, and will probably last you a year or two from now easily. It has a quad core processor and a 4.7 inch high definition screen and 2 GB of RAM. That is a luxurious spec list, my friend.

    I would recommend the HTC One over the S4 also. I have both and the One seems to perform better all around. Faster, less lag, incredible screen, the sound can't be beat and it feels better in MY hand. Your best bet is to check both of them out. It all comes down to what you personally like.

    You should check phones side by side and decide which one suit your needs...

    FYI: HTC is having a black friday sale I think for 29.99 on contract....

    Less lag is about right. Sense 5 is far better than TouchWiz.

    Thanks for all your replies my friends !

    I was wondering, is there LED notification which I can change color ?
    and also, the camera, can it be silenced ?? (I don't care about big camera megapixels, but good close pictures at night or day)
    The contacts can be saved directly to the phone ?

    not sure about the LED thing, but you can disable the camera sound of course.
    if you like prime feel and special build quality, the ONE is the one for you.
    also, if you appreciate SOUND, it's the only option

    I use to be a blackberry user as well. Let me tell you upgrading to the HTC one is the best thing I've ever did. An amazing phone, you should definitely take advantage of the price on black Friday.

    I agree with lEssence.. I came from the world of blackberry my self this year and I got the HTC one 6 months ago.. I still very much enjoy using this phone as my daily driver.. Its great device and the specs live up to other flagships around.. This is my first Android phone and I couldn't be any happier with my decision!

    Nah, I don't think HTC will go belly up, considering they sell more than Sony these days...

    Sold my One last month to get an S4 because of purple camera issue (I didn't have a warranty)
    Now 1 month later I want to switch again to One because of hardware feelings and of course Sense 5.5.
    HTC M8 will not be in the shelves before April and price will be high so yes we still have at least 6 months before new flagships tempt us

    Nah, If you want the HTC One, get it now. Don't wait for the next flagship. Cause if you wait for the next flagship, the next will be on its way. It's a never ending cycle.
