Re: Verizon: The All-New HTC One

Last years One didn't have any branding on the front either, sure glad they didn't change that.

One change I like is the sdcard :D

Re: Verizon: The All-New HTC One

I hope they don't get "exclusivity" for the 32GB version, like Verizon has in the past with some phones.

Re: Verizon: The All-New HTC One

Couldn't they just add the swappable battery on their really would it kill them.

It would be damn near impossible with the way this latest design is looking, its practically an aluminium unibody.

With their hardware stack being designed so that the battery is closest to the screen, that is all but impossible.

Re: Verizon: The All-New HTC One

I know but one can dream can't they. Last year the HTC One for China had a removable back though no swappable battery still the back came off which means it could have been possible. Plus Samsung can do it so why can't HTC?

Re: Verizon: The All-New HTC One

I always thought their battery door designs, such as with the EVO Design, were pretty nifty. I don't need a removable battery, but it was cool to play with haha

And then you have the ones like with the Sensation where you are essentially taking the phone apart just to replace the battery...

Re: Verizon: The All-New HTC One

Herp derp. Geesh.

Valid question and Raptor gave a valid answer.

HTC probably has market research that shows that the design is more important to potential customers than a removable battery. Plus the battery is in between the screen and motherboard on the old HTC One. They might not change that for the new HTC One.
