In another landslide victory, the HTC One beat out all other smartphones to take first in the Official Smartphone Rankings. Just under a 400 vote win, the HTC One is proving that it will take a lot to know it down from the top spot.
"Best Android/Phone on the Market" By SCOTT PLAMONDON on May 12, 2013
Switching from the Lumia 920 and Samsung Galaxy S3 I never thought I would like an HTC. I have always been a strong Samsung Galaxy fan. This phone has flipped my thoughts upside down. Has anyone held the S4 yet. It is about as disappointing as a Christmas without santa. The S3 was a great phone and set the bar for future phones. The only problem is that was last year. Samsung decided to give it 50% effort instead of HTCs 100% effort. I had the S4 for about two days before realizing how much of a better phone the HTC One is. i am in no way saying the S4 is a bad phone because it is as powerful as they come. I am saying the HTC One just does everything a little bit better. And a bit more professional. Touch Wiz is starting to feel out of date as well which I never thought I would say. Android phones will now be judged by the HTC One. Everyone will compare them to the HTC One. My hat is off to you HTC good job! I will be a happy camper with this phone until the Note 3 shocks the world hopefully. We can all just hope with fierce competition like this each company drives technology further and further making an even better phone sooner. My one gripe is the Antenna on the HTC one. It seems I never quite have full signal in an area where my work phone the iPhone 5 has full signal on the same network. I still have almost full bars but usually down 1.
