PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The reviews are universally positive, and virtually everyone seems to agree: the HTC One is one heck of an Android device, and quite possibly the best phone currently on the market. Outstanding build quality, great design, fast - and just like the One X before it, it looks like to me it's a far better phone than its Galaxy counterparts. Why, then, is no one buying HTC phones?

BTW, I'm far from a HTC hater. I bought a pair of HTC G1s on the first day of availability. I later upgraded to an HTC G2, and a HTC Nexus 1. All G1 and nexus 1 had generous/timely updates, great community support, and replaceable batteries. The HTC G2 less so, locked bootloader, and special write protected flash. At the time I believe the G2 was one of the least community friendly phones you could buy.

I tend to keep phones for awhile, and move them to secondary uses after I buy something. In all 3 cases I ended up buying a new battery after the first had noticeably degraded.

Currently I have a samsung galaxy nexus that has a replaceable battery, is running android android 4.2.2. The HTC one is currently running 4.1.2 and will likely get whatever android's next release is well after my current phone.
