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

    I'm sure hoping that they don't have much more tinkering to do with the camera, as I just spoke minutes ago with HTC. Supposedly it will be available in the "next 7 days" with ATT. And she was quite sure. If so, tinkering time is up. I'm really interested in the call quality as I am hard of hearing. Any news?

    Also, in HTC's IR software, is there a way to configure it to work with an Apple TV? And does the aluminum "feel" like the iPhone or more like HTC's past metal phones like the Inspire 4g?
    Already stated that it feels like aluminum. No finish on top of it.

    1. Does the personalize option still include "scenes "?

    I use my phone for work (Airline Pilot) and personal. Obviously, my "app usage " is very different at work or home. I have always used an HTC in part because of scenes. When I am at work, I just select "work " and my homescreens change to all my aviation apps and widgets. This is not a feature I want to lose.

    2. Can you disable the clock / weather widget in the app drawer?

    When I am at work, and am off flying I obviously make use of flight mode lots. For this reason, my work scene never includes any kind of weather clock, I have Metar widgets for that. Having the standard widget omni present in the app drawer would be annoying.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I know! I miss the clock and animations I had on my HTC Rezound when I switched to AT&T and got the Samsung Galaxy S3. I actually had to buy Beautiful Widgets, but that's still not close enough to the old Sense Clock.

    The metal will be anodised. Black obviously for the black one, and clear for the silver one. You can't leave Aluminium bare as it will oxidise. Anodising is a 'controlled' oxidisation that 'seals' it, and also the process makes the aluminium much tougher, scratch resistant etc.

    Phil will say for sure, but the Mobile syrup reviewer noted the old style weather clock is still available as a widget, it is simply not already on a homescreen by default. Default is blink and one blank "Home " screen.

    The specs show the One doesn't have removable storage, is that true? And if so, any idea why HTC didn't include it? (I've got a 3 month old 32gb card for my Desire HD and I feel like it's gonna be wasted)

    Any idea how the scaling works with such a large screen? Do widgets/icons look weird compared to a lower res version?

    Seriously though, how out-of-reach is that power button? I hate having to readjust the phone in my hand (and risk dropping it in the process) just to lock and unlock the screen.

    It's the opposite placement of the evo lte button. You'll get used to it.

    I've become quite used to having the power button on the side since my SGS2, SGS3, and Nexus 4. I like almost everything else about this phone, but man... why the top? Why? Is there any functional reason for putting it so high up?

    Its not that bad. Don't get a headache over it, you'll get used to it. Great phone either way.

    Also remember its a IR sensor. Nobody uses their remote control from the side.

    I honestly don't care about the IR blaster, and will never use it. It seems like a fluff feature to me. Cool idea, but I doubt there will be many apps that use it. Why not focus on ergonomics? I feel like I'm gonna get carpal tunnel every time I use my friend's Evo LTE... and my hands aren't small by any means.

    True enough. I should've been more specific. No rubberized finish or anything like that. I did find which means the non-black aluminum could be raw, right? Pretty sure Apple said the "white" iPhone 5 was unfinished aluminum (don't quote me on that, I didn't read all the launch articles).

    Alex and Phil, I have one simple question concerning the HTC One. Not counting the screen size or even the hardware, if you had to choose between the HTC One and the Note 2(take away the S-Pen), which would you take? Strictly a software decision is what I'm looking for, I just want to know how it compares software wise, minus the S-Pen feature on the Note 2.

    I remember reading or hearing about how the IR blaster is a much bigger deal over seas in Asia. If I get a chance I will try and find the source and edit this. Anyways, the reach to the power button isn't as bad as you may think. I have a DNA which I believe is a little taller than the One, and although awkward at first it quickly becomes natural.

    That's pretty much how HTC presented it to us.

    Software-wise, I'll take Sense any day of the week over TouchWiz. But that's a personal decision.

    i only need to know two things about this phone to want to upgrade...is the battery at least as good as my EVO 4G LTE? and is the LTE antenna better then my EVO 4G LTE. I have LTE all over my small city and can barely use it due to the antenna never connecting. GF's iphone 5 does it no problem.

    Alex/Phil, what about the MHL Media Link connectivity? I use the wireless adapter quite alot to stream stuff from my phone to my TV and that'd be awesome if the One had it..?

    Also, I have the One X+ which doesn't use a partition for apps/media, can you confirm the One has no partition either?

    Thanks!

    I apologize in advance if I missed the answer to this..

    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?
