Photographyblog reviews the HTC One and writes;
“In summary the HTC One is a great smartphone with a unique camera that could either more than satisfy your needs, or fall some way short, depending on how you intend to use and share your photos.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Techradar reviews the HTC One and writes;
“The camera is a great addition for on the spot shooting – if you want to take the photos and blow them up somewhere, it’s not the phone for you, but if you want to be able to snap your friends in pubs without it being a blurry, dark mess, the HTC One comes into its own.”
Rating: ★★★★★

Expertreviews reviews the HTC One and writes;
“Given you can move BlinkFeed out of view, the HTC should appeal to everyone. It will be especially tempting to those who crave the low-light capabilities of its camera. Its metal chassis is also a big selling point – and one, based on past models, that is unlikely to appear on the Samsung Galaxy S4.”
Rating: ★★★★★

Gizmodo reviews the HTC One and writes;
“It’s simply one of the most exciting pieces of hardware we’ve seen in a long time, including the Galaxy S IV. As of this moment, the HTC One is looking like the best Android phone you’ll be able to buy for the foreseeable future.”

Stuff reviews the HTC One and writes;
“for everything else – using apps and games, browsing, messaging and sheer pride of ownership, it’s the HTC One. It’s the most desirable Android handset ever, running more slickly than any rival and with a screen that makes us swoon.”
Rating: ★★★★★

Engadget reviews the HTC One and writes;
“In our time with the One, daytime videos were not only crisp and smooth visually, the One’s noise-cancellation mics did a great job filtering out wind and other unwanted background noise, while picking up our own voices very well at the same time. HDR videos are pretty good, “

brighthand reviews the HTC One and writes;
“Without a doubt, the HTC One is the best smartphones HTC has ever created and surely one of the best smartphones we will see in 2013. Its excellent display is impressive, as is its outstanding performance and great design.”
Rating: ★★★★★

CNET reviews the HTC One and writes;
“With its super-crisp, bold screen, monstrously powerful processor, all-metal chassis and fun, attractive interface, the One is a real contender among this year’s high-end smart phones. Its BlinkFeed software might be a gimmick, but overall it provides a classy, user-friendly experience.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Gadgetreview compares the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 and writes;
“The Samsung Galaxy S4 uses the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor that the is powering the HTC One. But the GS4 is clocked up to 1.9GHz. The One is clocked at 1.7. Surprisingly the One is just a bit faster in both games, UI navigation and web surfing.”

Trustedreviews reviews the HTC One and writes;
“The HTC One might be the most desirable phone available right now. Its metal-backed body feels fantastic in the hand, its screen is superb, performance is great and Sense 5 offers some interesting new features that you can choose to side-step if you prefer old-style Sense.”
Rating: ★★★★½

PCPro reviews the HTC One and writes;
“Sense 5’s key new feature is BlinkFeed, which replaces the traditional homescreen with a tiled gallery of web content, news stories and social media posts. It’s the first thing to appear when the phone is unlocked, and it looks superb: scrolling downwards reveals vibrant tiles loaded with pictures, headlines and status updates.”
Rating: ★★★★½

T3 reviews the HTC One and writes;
“The HTC One comes with a 4.7-inch 1080p Full HD display sporting a ludicrous 468ppi. When you first look at it the effect is actually underwhelming thanks to the large black expanse of an, as yet, unused BlinkFeed, however take a few pictures or head over to YouTube and you’ll soon realise the error of your judgement.”
