For all the hate towards HTC, I loved my "Nexus one", and my "One Max" is the best android device I have had to date. My GS2 was great, but my GS3 and 4 were horrible in the build quality, durability and software load out compared to the GS2.

Samsung's quality peaked with the GS2/GNexus, since then its been all about adding bells and whistles as quickly as possible without actually making sure they will last.

If I want to buy a new phone once a year that should be my choice. Samsung's build quality and OS modifications made that choice for me. HTC adding this is just icing on the cake.

Sorry to the across the pond HTC owners, hopefully you will get some accidental screen breaking love too.

Screw a replacement screen service, give us fucking software updates.
Uh... exactly what update do you want, Android 5.0? HTC is running the current version (4.4) on most of their devices.

My first smartphone was an HTC my Touch4g and I loved the build quality and feel of that phone. I never thought I'd like another smartphone as much. Owned an s2 and an s3 and they were nice in terms of display and speed but there was something slightly unremarkable about them. Now I've got the HTC One, this phone has ruined all other phones for me - it's so awesome. I just wish I qualified for this advantage , I only got the phone 2 months ago :(

For us down under, we are still waiting for 4.4 on htc one (telstra)... mind you this just makes me more certain I'll never purchase a phone from a carrier again.On another note the durability of the htc one actually made me more careless with it. I've dropped it a countless number of times in a variety of circumstances, always to the disappointment of the Samsung and Apple troops around me. Twelve months of this and a hairline fracture through the middle of the screen suddenly appeared overnight! Needless to say it didn't take long to spread.I'm not saying this shouldn't have happened (I'm more amazed the screen held up this long), but I do wonder just how HTC can 'replace' these screes without a whole refurb?
