    Last years One didn't have any branding on the front either, sure glad they didn't change that.

    One change I like is the sdcard

    I hope they don't get "exclusivity" for the 32GB version, like Verizon has in the past with some phones.

    It would be damn near impossible with the way this latest design is looking, its practically an aluminium unibody.

    With their hardware stack being designed so that the battery is closest to the screen, that is all but impossible.

    I know but one can dream can't they. Last year the HTC One for China had a removable back though no swappable battery still the back came off which means it could have been possible. Plus Samsung can do it so why can't HTC?

    I always thought their battery door designs, such as with the EVO Design, were pretty nifty. I don't need a removable battery, but it was cool to play with haha

    And then you have the ones like with the Sensation where you are essentially taking the phone apart just to replace the battery...

    You know theyre embarrassed by the camera specs when they only list the MP of the front but not the back.

    Valid question and Raptor gave a valid answer.

    HTC probably has market research that shows that the design is more important to potential customers than a removable battery. Plus the battery is in between the screen and motherboard on the old HTC One. They might not change that for the new HTC One.

    They also found that the battery could be bigger if sealed inside. Personally, I'd rather have better battery life than the ability to swap out.

    Goes both ways though. A year in, the battery may not hold a charge as well as it did when you first got it. Prior to my Moto X, I always bought a new battery at around the 12 month mark to keep things fresh.

    Yep, I agree. Eventually the battery will wear down - and who is gonna replace it?

    Correct and when it continues to degrade and hold less and less charge you are out of luck. You get a new phone just because the battery won't hold a charge. Do you replace your car because the battery is dead, no you put a new battery in the car because you can.
