Default Has there been a better smartphone launch than HTC One



It is such a shame that HTC could not capitalize on the market share they gained when they launched the first version of HTC One.

At the time of its launch it was the most superior phone in every aspect:

- best design
- best screen
- best audio system
- incredible headphone sound
- had their own version of android design and functions
- there was no phone on the market remotely close in competition

I switched to the Iphone 6s afterwards since HTC failed to make any improvements and innovations to their new phones. However, I will always remember the HTC One as the best smartphone ever launched at its time.

why does your entire life revolve around apple products? There's more to life than tech you know. Besides, not much as changed function wise since 2015.

Samsung has had the best phone on the market for many years, and did when HTC arrived

HTC One was an amazing phone. Bought it a week after it came out. Funny, I took I found it in my cupboard a couple of days ago and it still works. Incredibly durable.

At the time, it arguably had the best camera and the best speakers. Agreed on the UI and screen as well. BlinkFeed was pretty cool as well.

S8 is a great phone. But we are talking here about phones with the most revolutionary improvements that completely shattered the competition.

When HTC one was launched Apple had Iphone 5 and Samsung had the S4 I believe. None of those phones even compared.

And ,no, my life does not revolve around a smartphone. But as I am up for renewal and could get an upgrade to the 6s, I am extremely disappointed by the lack of innovation in the Iphone 8 and the S8. There is nothing that really standa out.

The Samsung S4 had nothing on the HTC One. The UI, the scren, the sound system, the design and even the camera were much more superior on the HTC. There was a reason the One even won phone of the year at the time.

Agreed it was a great piece of work. It was my first jump into flagship phonesanity and it was good times. Bought an M8 after that.

Unfortunately that purple tint in the camera was a legit problem.

Currently have an LG G5 and it is not that good.

HTC imploded inside out from the top management to share holders afterwards
People didn't want to invest their money into a phone where the company was losing big names

Beautiful designed phone tho

Samsung had a better camera, processor, battery, sd card option, better version of android

HTC had better sound and a nicer design
