    If you don't want to see the BlinkFeed view, you swipe over one screen. That's it. When you put the phone into standby and wake it again, it remembers that you were on the "normal" home screen. It's in our hands-on videos.

    Feels like aluminum. Not coated with anything.

    "Yep. The most interesting one for me was the flip case that doubles up as a stand. The rest are pretty run of the mill (not necessarily bad, though)"

    Alex/Phil - I saw a pic of the flip case you mentioned. I saw it in the standing vertical position, but do you know if it also does it horizontally?

    I'm still on the fence about that, honestly. I think it being LCD makes a bigger difference than anything. Does 1080p look better than 720? Sure. But not grossly so, imho.

    How jarring is the use of only 2 buttons, the home and the back buttons?

    Does the lack of a menu/recent apps button make the phone feel awkward?

    Does the placement of the buttons make it difficult? Seems odd that the "HTC" is centered and does absolutely nothing.

    I noticed that on HTC's website, they mention "NFC availability depends on the mobile operator and your location. Please check with your mobile operator". Did you notice if the One that you had hands on time with have NFC?

    Gonna need more time with it to really answer that, but I'll reiterate that *any* smartphone has a little break-in time. Well, except for the iPhone, I guess.

    Phone is very fast. I was particularly impressed by the responsiveness of the stock keyboard. No idea about any mutli-tasking changes, but it has 2GB of RAM so that should be plenty.
    Does Sense 5 allow for accessing system settings on the notification curtain itself as with Touchwiz?
    Yep
    How does it feel in the hand and do you think it will need a case for grip purposes?
    I don't think so. It's less grippy than the DNA, but I never felt like I was going to drop it. (The shape also helps with this.)
    What most impresses you guys the most about this phone in general so far?

    Thanks.

    Definitely the build quality. Nothing beats a metal phone, and HTC makes some of the best metal phones out there.

    HTC spec sheet says DDR2. Apparently the HTC spec sheet is wrong and it's DDR3. Not that you should lose any sleep over that kind of thing

    Feels great in the hand. The only awkwardness comes from the button placement, but that's me coming from using predominantly Nexuses for the past six months.

    Notification pulldown is more or less identical to Sense 4+. Power saver thing is there, and you can't turn it off. No quick settings, but the Settings app shortcut is there.

    One step at a time -- let's see when we get 4.2. I think if you buy an HTC One, you're not buying it for Android software updates, you're buying it because of the great build quality, the crazy screen, the UI, the camera, the Zoe stuff and all the unique HTC features. (I think if you pick one up and then get rid of all that stuff by flashing CM or whatever, you're kinda doing it wrong.)

    Ask me again when I've used final, production hardware and software for both . All I've seen of the Z and the HTC One so far have been prototypes.

    Don't think there's any way to completely kill it while keeping the standard Sense launcher (again, not 100% sure)... But a third-party launcher will hide all that stuff.

    There's a difference, but not a huge one. It's not like the jump up to 720, where going back to WVGA or lower suddenly made everything look like crap. (There's probably something in the argument that 468ppi on a phone is wasted on most people.)

    Both have the same matte finish. Both feel like brushed aluminium. If you've used any HTC phone with non-painted aluminium, that's what it feels like.

    64GB version is Asia-only for the moment. You'll be able to import one, but you'll pay more, and you'll need to double-check 3G/4G freqs to make sure it works on UK bands.

    Default Re: I've used the HTC One. You've got questions. Let's do this.

    Previous HTC phones have been plagued with reception problems and dropped calls due to their antenna being placed in the back cover. Has this problem been addressed?

    Their screens have also been prone to allow dust to creep under them. Do you have a sense that the new screen design will prevent this problem in the future?

    There have also been a myriad of other hardware quality issues such as power button failure that have plagued previous HTC phones. Did you see anything in the presentation that indicated HTC is addressing their quality problems? In the past they have acknowledged the issues I've mentioned, but they've never addressed them in new phones that they've released.

    Thank you.

    It's in the usual spot, I think. Hopefully won't collect gunk as much as the HOX. We'll see.

    I think they plan to open it up, yeah. Not expecting a lot there, though.

    Haven't used it outside yet. But if it's as good as SLCD2, it should be just fine.

    With my HTC One S, the multi-task button can double as a menu button, so we don't lose screen real estate with the black bar for the 3-dotted on screen menu button. Sine the One loses a button, can we set up one of the existing buttons to double as a menu button?
