The Overall Experience: A beautiful looking phone that is a pleasure to use. The HTC Sense UI is quick and easy to use yet offers enough personalization option so that users can make it their own. The battery easily gets you though a full day of light to moderate use, though it's worth keeping a charger to hand in times of heavy use. Although image taken by the camera don't show as much detail as most other modern smartphones, especially when zoomed in) the camera experience is fast and easy to use with an array of useful software features built-in such as HTC Zoe, slow motion video and continuous shooting. Media consumption is a real pleasure due to the phone's excellent screen and dual front-facing BoomSound™ speakers.

How To Buy
 
 

Things to Consider

The original the HTC One (M7) is a high-end smartphone, everyone has different preferences when it comes to what they want from a smartphone.  With that in mind, here are the top things we believe you should be aware of before buying the HTC One:

  • The aluminium body of the phone is prone to denting and scratching if dropped, put in a pocket with metal coins or keys, or handled roughly. We therefore recommend you invest in a case and screen protector (see accessories)
  • The back of the phone is non-removable which means that you can’t expand the storage, can’t replace the battery and repairs are more difficult and expensive than on most other phones, especially without specialist tools
  • If you need to take high resolution photos from your phone e.g. you want to print them or view them on a big screen then the camera on the HTC one probably won’t meet your needs because it is only 4MP
  • The HTC One is a high-end phone and the price reflects that. The advantage of buying a high end phone such as this is that it is more future-proof i.e. has the spec to handle OS upgrades and more resource intensive apps in the future
  • The HTC One uses a micro-SIM
