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?

Took delivery of my HTC One today, oddly enough. Samsung had me with the SII, but lost me shortly after (I took a detour through webOS).

It's a beautiful phone. But there's a problem. It's just another Android smartphone. It's beautifully executed, but it just feels dull. I was due an upgrade, read reviews, picked the best phone, but none of the choices excited me. I miss the excitement of a new device. I would've gone with BB10 but the app situation is too immature.

But I do reward HTC for being the only Android OEM seemingly interested in design and risk-taking. Once you purge the Sense crap, the One's a perfectly good, sensible, totally (yawn) fine phone. And better than a lazy Samsung. I just wish someone would make a real effort to make Android more pleasant to live with.
