Why use the name "One" again???

HTC dropped the underwhelming "One series" last year. Why would they name their new "flagship" device the same thing?

I would have thought the smarter play would be to come up with something totally new.
In hopes for everyone forgot Razz
I think it's a good brand. It's certainly simpler and better than the cumbersome "Galaxy S III".
So you can say ," I want to go get ""ONE""." hehehe...
its a brand thing...people recognize that ONE. its also LG stuck with Optimus, people associate that name with a brand. good or

It is refreshing to know that the new HTC One and the LG Optimus has a quad-core with 2GB RAM instead of 1GB. Can't understand having a quad-core processor with only 1 GB RAM..........These are the only two US made phones I know of with 2Gigs RAM.....Please let me know of any others...........It's just good engineering......
Oh Yea , With all this speed and power does it drain on your data plan??????????????????UMM. Smile
Or does it save Data by being so fast to connect , it uses less data ............
Someone at ATT told me it is all up to your connection speed 4G , 3G......
Well, the US variants of the Galaxy S III have 2GB of RAM, but no quad-core, so that may not fit your criteria.
The Note 2 alson has a Quad with 2 gig's of ram.
also having a quad with one gig of ram isnt exactlly a bad thing either. the quad is more power efficient than a single or double. also you have to dig deeper like how many channels of ram they have.

No microSD card slot = No Sale (to me at least)

I refuse to buy into the stupid idea of not having a microSD card slot on these devices. I understand that Google doesn't like them but I and most folks do.

My 32GB microSD card currently has over 25GBs worth of music, movies, & pictures on it and that doesn't impact the built-in memory that is being used for applications.

Having to stream data when the carriers are ditching unlimited data plans is stupid and will cost consumers more $$$. And there are times when you can't stream data (like on the NYC subway when underground) but still want to access your content.

At least this device offers 32GB and 64GB version unlike the DNA which only had a pitiful 16GB total.

White and Silver

The white and silver model looks better than the black model, I guess I'm just tired of all black phones. The white and silver pictures seem to have more personality.

I am very skeptic of the this phone because I have the HTC One X and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Because of random reboots and software glitches.
I would agree going again with a non removable back and no expandable memory is a huge mistake. One X proved that and HTC is going to have to hit a homerun with this to make up for it and so far I don't see that. Also with everyone worrying about thei...
I feel the same way, enough with black phones!
White phones are a whole lot better looking!

... I've called it quits with HTC. I have waited patiently out of contract, to see how HTC would address a complaint. I was hoping this new device would capitalize. It didn't. The last 8 years with them has been nothing less than awesome. However, a common problem with most handsets(not just HTC), is that the USB port for charging the batteries, can fail right between the end of manufacturer warranty and end of contract. It is an extremely fragile part that fails under constant use. This has left me having to swap batteries to get me through until contract ends( I'm not paying a deductable for insurance when my contract is up within months). I have repeatedly expressed my concern to HTC that a removable battery is crucial in mobile technolog...
Only thing I would add there is if you have INS and are close to upgrade date do the INS and then sell the device to purchase your new upgrade.
Not having a removable battery is not what is making HTC's sales go down. The iPhone does not have a removable battery and their sales are just fine. Maybe your concern shouldn't be the removable battery but the usb charging port itself.
I'm experiencing the same exact problem with my Samsung Droid Charge, I've had it since October 2011, and the mucro-usb port is inoperable! I use desktop chargers.
A micro-usb port is definitely something I am concerned about in the long term.
My n...
Huh. I've never had a micro-USB port fail on me, and haven't heard of it being a common problem before.

Certainly there are several valid reasons why a user might want a removable battery.

But there are also several valid reasons that many compa...

"Unfortunately, Verizon is carrying on with its Droid nonsense."

Made me smile Smile
