CNET:

The good: The HTC One flaunts a stunning metal design, powerful quad-core processor, and a beautiful 4.7-inch 1080p screen. It runs Android Jelly Bean, takes great pictures, and has a feature-packed camera app.

The bad: Sealed case design means no SD expansion slot or user replaceable battery. The BlinkFeed software can’t be completely removed. The phone isn’t available on Verizon.

The bottom line: A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone.

As HTC’s new flagship smartphone, the HTC One is packed to the rafters with top-notch components and technologies including some of the latest processing gear Qualcomm can muster. In addition to being state of the art, the successor to 2012’s HTC One X is lovingly crafted from premium metals, leaving no doubt that the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer has placed considerable blood, sweat, and tears into this handset.

Like all other smartphones, the One isn’t perfect — it lacks both an SD Card slot for extra storage expansion and a removable battery. The camera isn’t quite as revolutionary as advertised. Android purists may not love HTC’s Sense UI skin, and the One’s non-removeable BlinkFeed news reader isn’t particularly welcome.

That said, I can easily say the HTC One is the fastest, most beautiful phone I’ve ever used. It should be at or near the top of the consideration list for anyone looking for a phone on Sprint, T-Mobile, or AT&T — where it will be going head-to-head with the Samsung Galaxy S4.
