    Probably the most over-hyped feature of the One. None of the other major OEMs with more than 1% U.S. market share or 3% globally) followed suit. At least Highlights was an innovative gimmick ultimately copied by Google with Auto-Awesome. Seem HTC still doesn't get it and is doubling down on dumb.

    I like the sound boom speaker and not having to cup my phone.

    That's one thing I like about the One - the front facing speakers. Overall I wasn't impressed with the S5 reveal so I'm going to see what HTC offers with the "New HTC One" - I guess that's what they are calling it now. Battery life is a stickler as well as storage capacity. Time will tell.

    If you don't care for the thread or a post, then just move on. If you believe a post is inappropriate, feel free to report the post to the moderator team.

    Posting in a thread to complain is not an appropriate response. I suggest that you take the opportunity to review the AC forum rules. Accusing another member of trolling is itself considered trolling under the forum rules.

    Sony would like to have a word with you regarding the Z2 and its front-facing speakers. Huawei says hello too, since they've added that feature to their lineup.
    But I guess I was on a sherm trip and imagined the whole thing, since according to you, nobody followed suit.

    Sorry, I should edit that to "major OEMs, with more than 1% market share". Are we good now?

    You're going to need to edit that again my naive friend. Sony and Huawei both have larger than 1% market share globally with Sony and Huawei at both at around 3%.


    EDIT: Huawei even controls 10% of the Chinese smartphone market nowadays. Fringe player they are not.
    Sony even has a 7.5% hold on the market in Japan, I'd say that's enough for them to be a "major OEM" especially when using your standard of >1% market share

    I'm looking forward to the improvements they've made to BoomSound. There have been several people who were impressed by the BoomSound hardware, when I demonstrated the capability to them. Playing racing and action games is a good experience for me (from an audio perspective). It makes me appreciate the effort the developers devoted to the soundtrack and sound effects.

    for me, the sound of my wife yelling "turn that thing down or put headphones on" killed the audio capabilities of the speakers

    So why try to downplay it if your wife was the one dogging you about it? That makes no sense.

    I think it's a well executed gimmick but I don't think the market is clamoring for cell phones with stereo speakers since a lot of folks use headphones.

    With this statement now I can agree. But when something is good, it's good. The HTC One does non-headphone speakers well, but you're likely right in saying most people have headphones in.

    I use the speakers on my phone daily when I'm home. It's one of the main reasons I'm probably getting the M8.
