phonephetish's review of the HTC One (CDMA)

original version, submitted May 17, 2013, 12:03 PM:

Best HTC One phone yet

I have the HTC one in the silver color on Sprint. My first impression of the HTC One was its super sleek, aluminum unibody construction. The fit and finish of this phone is amazing. There is a nice weight to the phone, and the back has a slight curve that makes it fit nicely in the hand. The 4.7” screen is beautiful. BlinkFeed is a nice feature and I like being able to see my topics of interest and social networks all brought together in my home screen.

The Snapdragon 600, quad-core processor really makes this phone snappy. I have downloaded over 50 apps, have a ton of pics and mp3s on my phone, and the phone is still very responsive. I’ve had the phone for a month and haven’t experienced any sluggishness.

The UltraPixel camera is great and there is almost no lag when you go to snap a photo. I’m still experimenting with the Zoe camera feature, but have used the camera in many low light settings and was impressed with how the pictures turned out.

The BoomSound, dual front stereo speakers sound rich and crisp. I’ve watched Netflix at home while running on the treadmill or doing laundry, and have no trouble hearing the sound over background noise.

Call quality on the HTC One has been great. The battery life is pretty good. I charge my phone at night, and with moderate use, my phone lasts until the evening around 8pm without a charge. Overall, this is a great phone and I would recommend it to anyone. The only cons I have are the following: 1) I wish the volume button was a bit more raised. The button is flush with the phone and only has a slight bit of texture to allow you to find it by touch; 2) since Sense 5 doesn’t have a menu button, some apps display a large black bar at the bottom of the screen as a menu button. Hopefully a software update allows for the option to allow the home button to serve as a menu button as well. Currently the home button long press activates Google Now, and a double tap brings up the recent apps menu.
