    Default Re: The HTC One will be a hit, pass Galaxy S4 for ONE reason..

    I'm on VZW and use the MAXXHD so I'm coming in as a bystander. My sister has the S3 (on VZW) and loves the phone because of the screen. I think she is the typical user, doesn't care about the removable battery (put it in an Otterbox commuter case on day 1 and hasn't removed it since) or the SD card. She has the 16GB version and has the 2GB SD card from her old phone in it. Has tinkered with TW but doesn't use most of the features and has disabled a lot of them (after I showed her how to disable apps).

    My gf just got the One. Just like my sister, she doesn't care it doesn't have a removable battery and since her One is 32GB, she has no need for more storage. Her last phone was the S2 and she kept it in a big Casemate Tough case. This time she asked for a minimal case because it would be a shame to hide the "beautiful phone" (her words). She asked for my help to get TW off her S2 and asked to make her phone look like mine (Thunderbolt at the time so Sense 2.x). She absolutely loves the phone and Sense. Blinkfeed and Zoe are her favorite features.

    Before she bought the phone I tried to make her consider the S4. I told her about memory, battery, screen size, etc... She held the 16GB version, compared it to the S3, and then went for the One. My sister was looking forward to the S4 but after seeing my gf's One, she was very upset that it was not coming to VZW. Now she is looking forward to the DNA+ or whatever is coming to VZW from HTC. Even my iphone friends were impressed by the One.

    We might be impressed with batteries and SD cards, processors and PPI, but the average consumer is vastly more impressed by aluminum build, new and unique design, and fun impressive apps. I've always found Sense "prettier" than TW and more user friendly, but I'm biased, but both my sister and gf prefer Sense to TW. The main take-away from this is that the One has been able to impress everyone I know that comes across it, even my iphone friends who in the past have turned up their noses to the S3 and pretty much everything not apple.

    HTC has a hit with the One. It won't take the crown away from Sammy, but I think it will lure many away from all folds and hopefully put HTC on firmer footing.

    I was a Samsung fanboy, actually I still am. I liked how they were positioned with regards to the iPhone hedgemony and I like their other tech devices, not just cellphones and tablets. I would have gotten a Samsung cellphone just to spite Apple sales people(/"followers") even if by comparison, the hardware was underspec'd in comparison to Apple's own (which it wasn't in the stuff I had), I was that bad(/good) a follower of the brand.

    Getting the chance to use the M7 though changed things for me. Might go back to a Samsung product in the future after the HTC reaches it's end of life, if HTC can't follow up with another phone as good as the current one though. We'll have to see.

    I like raw power(more impressive hardware specs) Samsung has taken to offering in it's phones. /fanboy observation

    So I have to say, I have had the S3 and then the note 2 on verizon and switched to tmobile for the cheaper plans and the monthly savings etc. I figured since I have had the samsung phones for a few years I would try the HTC one. Personally if I wanted a phone to force so many things upon me id have gotten the iPhone. I am exchanging the One for the S4.

    This is my opinion of course but I hate the notification for power saver, I hate blink feed since I use facebook app and pulse and have for years, I hate the camera, I dislike all my friends photos in the gallery, i dislike the way the app drawer functions and how the dock functions when adding things to it. I am just not happy with this phone, or should I say Sense...The phone itself is a beautiful piece of work and the fact it takes 200 minutes of cnc machining to make each phone is amazing to me. However if i'm not happy with the software I am not going to keep it, also had I stuck with verizon I was going to get the s4 at upgrade time in june anyway.

    While i'm thinking about it maybe I don't hate the phone or Sense I just am not used to it. and this causes me to dislike it.

    I feel i'm not the only one but i do think HTC has a winner compared to my last HTC phone the thunderbolt haha! that phone was a joke......
