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?

When the choice was galaxy s2 or HTC sensation, the clear winner was samsung as HTC was by far more restrictive towards their users.

HTC has started to open themselves up a lot more but this was well after everyone dropped their phones for Samsung.

The HTC hero is my favourite android phone of all time but I'll probably never buy HTC again.


I love the Hero too, and I went to that from a succession of HTC Windows mobile phones (the Touch Diamond was the last of these). But like you, I had the choice of the Sensation or the S2 and I went with the S2.

I haven't regretted it for a moment - it's fantastic and still among the very best phones you can buy, in my opinion.

Having said that, I'll possibly upgrade at some point later this year. I'll consider both the S4 and the HTC One, but I'll also shop around and see what other manufacturers have to offer.

One more thing - lightweight, durable plastic is way better than metal for a phone body.
