Well, this area of the forum seems to be suffering from lack of traffic, so i thought i might add a thought or three.
I had the HTC One X on AT&T's network via their prepaid $50 a month plan. It suffered a catastrophic natural disaster after slipping off the couch unseen. It somehow manage to find it's way under my bare foot the next morning. Normally it wouldn't have been left untended there, but my memory and tech safety habits aren't always foolproof.
So, that leads me to the HTC One. I wanted the black 64GB One.... because you know, the most expensive One is always what you want (The 64GB is an AT&T exclusive if you didn't know - so much for HTC learning exclusivity is usually a bad thing). None to be found. So after limping along with my shattered screen for a couple of weeks I sprung for the silver 32GB and I'm happy enough. I'm kicking myself for locking myself into a contract of course, and I'm sure my foot will only get bigger and my leg strong as the months drag by. I will try and stop back by once in awhile and have some of you remind me also in case I'm suffering a cramp.
To anyone wondering, it's a very nice device. Even with the Cimo frosted TPU gel case on it the device still feels iPhoneish solid and premium. No doubt it will still stuffer from drops in iPhoneish fashion as we know plastic, however cheaply feeling, fares better at sudden stops on hard surfaces.
Not crazy about the blink feed so I made the middle of 3 available home screens my default. You can select from several topics / social networking tools to populate the blinkfeed with so many people will love them some of that.
I didn't really expect to notice a difference between the 720p screen on my old phone vs the 1080p on this one but it does look a bit more crisp. Possibly just the choice in fonts and graphics?
The phone is fast....an occasional hiccup. Still not up to par with the iPhones I've played with but for my uses the screen size and customization possibilities outweigh. To each their own. Battery life has been good enough for my uses also.
After 12.5 hrs yesterday I had 18% battery left. That was with approximately an hour of voice, data on, WiFi off, Bluetooth on, auto screen brightness with a time out of 15 seconds down from the 30 default. Only my gmail account is synced and I don't have an exact time on internet usage. I did respond to a couple hundred texts so most of the battery usage was the screen as usual. I browsed the play store and responded to a few Facebook messages and posts. Moderate usage. I'm guessing I'm getting at least 2-3 hours less battery life than the old phone. I didn't have data on the old phone so I have to try and remember how it was for the 3 weeks I did. I had hoped for better but from reviews I knew what I was getting into. Battery life on android has came a long way from when i had the EVO 4G on Sprint. Nothing I did or didn't do got me more than 7-8 hours on that voracious slab.
The camera....it's good. Overhyped but low light pics are a big leap above the old phone. I took 2 test photos last night to compare for a cousin who wanted to know. The 4mp will be notice but "zooming pixel peepers" as being inadequate for close in cropping duty. For my uses It will be great. iPhone, Galaxy S3 and One X / X+ users aren't missing much. From reviews I would prefer the Nokia phones for camera usage.
The biggest reason for my post though is this. If you use a screen protector, you may notice the home and back capactive buttons get a bit unresponsive at times. I had the Spigen film protector and it did get a bit annoying. Works fine without it. Those protectors are a bit thicker than any I've used in the past. I plan on Seidio's Crystal Clear one's within the week and will update this post, if anyone cares or not
I'll try to answer any questions if possible. Take care all
