    What it means is that Android has an app switcher built in, but other than the convenient swiping, it's--in practice--no better than the "multi-tasking" in iOS.

    Pick up a blackberry playbook or play with webos. That's multi-tasking.

    This really belongs in another thread if people want to make a deal out of it, though, so I'm not going to instigate the argument anymore. Check the link if you want an idea of my full opinion.

    Ha. Uh, do you mean webos?

    I agree with him. Android's implementation is pretty halfassed, but that's due to some limitations on how it could be done. Now if only Google could port over a lot of the ux concepts from webos. That would be an amazing experience.

    I've had my eye on this phone for my next upgrade (May-- yay!) but I'm concerned about the "meh" reaction the camera is getting. I've seen comparisons to the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S4, but what I really want to know is how it holds up against the iPhone 4s. Thats what I have now and I am satisfied with its camera performance. Am I going to be taking a step backwards (camera-wise) with the One? Keep in mind I don't have a dedicated camera, just my phone, and I don't print pictures out-- just email, message and facebook like most people.

    Should be on par with the 4s. If you just use them electronically, it'll be more than adequate.

    I don't care for non-swappable batteries, I think its stupid and clearly based on reports at iFixIt report to be dismal when it comes to repairs. HTC One Teardown - iFixit so if you cant repair it, how can you get the battery swapped out when it stops holding a charge long enough. I know the iPhone is the same way but they can swap out the battery fairly well.

    More or less, yeah. The biggest disappointment for me was dynamic range. There'll absolutely be cases where a One X will get you a better photo, just because if the 4MP wall. But for the kind of photos people take on phones, the One (M7) is a good fit.
    Painting us all with a broad brush! I take my phone now on my vacations and take most my pictures with it. This one I took in Stockholm while on a train hopping from one island to another.

    Apple doesn't swap out the battery. They give you a new phone. (which is what htc will do)

    Ah I want this to be my next phone - currently on the iphone 5. But there is just pre-order everywhere I look. Well everywhere except eBay but I would rather buy it from a "store" than eBay. I was tempted by the the Nexus 4 but I think the overall experience from the One is what I am looking for. Of course I have played with neither of them and this is just from all the reviews I have read and watched. Then again I was also tempted by the BB Z10 but think Android is more me at the moment.

    I think he's talking about whether or not LTE will be compatible in North America. But I could be wrong.

    Is it true that it isn't LTE compatible in North America?

    If it isn't, thats a total dealbreaker.

    The review units that got sent out were all international models. The US versions will be US LTE compatible.

    I wouldnt buy a phone that is possibly impossible to open without damaging it. What happens if something breaks out of warranty? Or you cracked your display and need to replace it? It seems you cant even replace the battery. Far too expensive for a disposable product, no matter how nice all the features appear to be.

    You send it to htc. It is not a disposable product. If you want a disposable product, buy a Samsung.

    So you're going to keep this HTC One until you die? I doubt it. That makes it disposable. All of your comments are so fetching asinine. Can you please stop with this ridiculous hatred for Samsung? You're starting to sound like a dang fool! Did a Samsung phone steal the affection of your significant other? Did it screw your favorite sports team out of a championship? Did it kill one of your family members? Because other than those things, I see no reason for you to be so illogical.

    I've chosen a Samsung over an HTC for my past 3 devices. It's a choice, but I wish the battery were better and I hate removable storage.

    I don't plan to keep it until I die. I intend to use it for as long as I've had any of my other Samsung phones. I just anticipate it to hold up a little better during that time.

    Figured I'd resurrect this baby after a couple of weeks...

    but I just finished molesting one at a Sprint store and I have to be honest, swiping up and down in the app drawer is SOOOOO much better than side to side. I know it's a tiny thing, but I've heard people complain about it (Phil!) and it just seems to me that if you are holding a phone in one hand, swiping up/down with your thumb is so much more natural than going side to side with it.

    Yes it does with the "Productivity" setup of the lock screen - you have the option of selecting a few. I dont have an exchange account with forced security policy but put in security and I still see my events on the lock screen.

    Alex,

    Is there any way to have "server search" ability on MSN / hotmail and Google hosted company mail. I could not do this on the HTC One mail app. Am I missing something? I know this is possible on the Nexus 4. It also seems HTC is not using the stock mail app. Will really appreciate a reply. I would to sync email for about 30 days or so but would like the ability to search something which was on the server from 6 months ago or longer.

    Thanks
