Re: I've used the HTC One. You've got questions. Let's do this.
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?
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.)
How does it feel in the hand and do you think it will need a case for grip purposes?
Definitely the build quality. Nothing beats a metal phone, and HTC makes some of the best metal phones out there.
What most impresses you guys the most about this phone in general so far?

It's good. We've seen side-by-side shots with the One X, and the HTC One is much better in low light. I'm not worrying too much about the 4MP thing, but OTOH I'm really curious to pit it against an Xperia Z with its 13MP Exmor RS dealie.

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.

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.)
