Just run a custom ROM.I for one am happy to see HTC decide to include the MicroSD card slot on the flagship device. It was the only reason i went for the midrange OneVX model rather than the One flagship model last year. I may go for this model next year if i can turn off Sense 6, Sense 4+ was great but after trying out Sense 5 i was very annoyed about having a clock in my app drawer and the fact that the apps scroll up and down instead of left to right.
It really is, the first thing that pleases me is the craft and quality put into the phone. Really nice craftsmanship, sort of like the craftsman ship on the corner details on the iPhone 5+. Love emI really hope this "one" does better than the other "one". I have 2 friends with the current "one" and it is a really really nice phone. Personally I am more of a WP/Nokia customer, but if I had to hop on the Android train then the One series would definitely be my first pick.
