HTC has released the new HTC One, the updated version of the last year's best Android phone nobody bought. The Verge already has its review up, and its conclusion is exactly as you expect.

There are a lot of great Android phones on the market right now, but two stand out: the Nexus 5 and the new HTC One. The Nexus 5 is Google's purest vision for Android, the One the platform's most mature and developed form. I desperately wish it took better pictures, and I'm reluctant to buy or recommend it until it does, but I like absolutely everything else. It's fast, long-lasting, does everything a phone should, and does it all with totally unparalleled class and style. From motion gestures to the Dot View case, it has genuinely new, genuinely useful features.

It may not outsell Samsung and the relentless marketing sure to follow the feature-rich Galaxy S5, but HTC executives say they don't care. They say they just want to build a phone for people who like nice things.

It's really hard to argue with that quality feel that last year's One had, and which this year's model improves. I think it's pretty much the only Android phone that can measure up to the iPhone in this department - and now, it also has an SD card slot.

I'm sorry "Kochise"** but that still makes it one more device to carry around, that will inevitably not be on you when a really great shot happens right in front of you, it is just more of a PITB than its worth which is why sales of cameras below DSLR pro level have been dropping like a stone.

Instead most will end up doing like my lady and just have a phone that takes really great pictures...AND watches videos AND plays games AND plays music AND texts AND makes calls AND is a GPS unit AND does a ton of other stuff thanks to all the apps.

**-Dude what is with sticking your name at the end of each post? Its not like your name isn't ALREADY AT THE TOP of every post you make so what is the point? Not like you see the more well known users here like Werecat, Lucas, or even Thom doing that so WTH?
