    Great review!

    Now if people would quit bashing it for non-removable battery and SD slot that would be great!

    So the camera is great in low light. But as far as in the day, is it comparable to the One X, the S3, or the Xperia series phones of this year?

    I think everyone knows im a Samsung Fanboy before anyone calls me out. But in this case this device looks awesome and (being that i am not going to get it) i will def be jealous of the front facing speakers. I do not understand why everyone does not do this.

    Did it annoy you that you couldn't get rid of Blinkfeed? I mean if you're not going to use it then "just ignore it" and "use a third party launcher" don't seem like optimum alternatives.

    Were I to get one I'd certainly try it out but being stuck with it if it's not my thing is a little off- putting.

    Hey Alex. Do you guys know the maximum ISO the camera can do? All the Android phones I've had had a max of 800; the IPhone 5 has an ISO of 3200 i believe. Im kind of curious to know what the maximum on the One is.

    I always put my device in my pocket display to leg so when I pull it out, I can see the screen. In my pocket, the speakers face out so I can hear the device. Aside from that, it makes sense to be on the front. Off to read alexs review.

    Exactly. I use a UE boombox via blue tooth for that. If the front speakers are pretty loud, maybe it wont matter that they are muffled some in my jeans. Looks like a great device. It is going to make many people happy. I fear some battery aliens.......they scary

    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.

    The bundled earbuds are better than Samsung's. I prefer Beats to Samsung's audio tweaks too, though the Samsung player gives you EQ options etc.

    I wasn't bothered by BlinkFeed. I used it, but differently to the way is use a news reader. I didn't have it as my default home screen though.

    You can see my home screens in the review. My default is the one with the Google Search widget.

    These speakers are so loud you'll hear them whatever direction they're facing. Trust me

    I like it but I'm sure the haters will hate.
    As they will for any other device. Can't please everybody, this is definitely one of the phones I may upgrade to.

    Posted this as a comment to the review as well but for fear of it getting lost out there im putting it in here too;

    Nice review but I hope we can get a bit more details on some of the following;

    Screen on time...install gsam or some other 3rd party monitoring app

    reception/radio strength..it is a phone after all and I've see many times that not all are equal in that arena, HTC and Moto in my experience have always been particularly great in getting more dbm/bars than some other phones so hoping the One is no different.

    Also..GPS lock on..(does it work as it should)--->typically not a concern for me but we did have some devices in the past where this was an issue.

    And lastly..most phone cams and especially HTCs tend to have fairly aggressive sharpening.can you turn this down from the default one or two notches and see how the pics turn out then?

    Thx!

    Here is a question:

    I just saw over at iMore that dear Rene and his Apple mind said ".... at the almost Apple-class unibody hardware..."

    "almost Apple-Class" is really what I am after.

    Would you say the hardware quality and/or build quality is "almost Apple-class" or would you say it is superior?

    I have an iPhone 5 and have had a play on an HTC One in store and I have to say the build quality of the HTC is fantastic. I would have no qualms in getting rid of my iPhone 5 and getting the HTC One if the decision was solely down to build quality (Fortunately I don't have to, i'm getting rid of my S2 to get the One instead). I was not disappointed in the HTCs build quality even remotely.

    I personally think my HTC One X+ build quality feels superior to the iPhone. I'm sure the HTC One would be the same way.

    Chances are he was just making excuses to say the iPhone was superior in any way he can.

    This is from me, on my EVO 3D.
