"Simple, elegant and very highly customizable "

I have had my One for 11 days and the experience has been great. My major concerns with it were not having a replaceable battery or M-SD card slot but have found out that were not necessary. Phone’s call quality is great, the front facing speakers are superb, allowing a true stereo effect and the display has been surprisingly good even outside in sunny days. Perhaps, one of the things I like the most is the level of customization w/o using Carrier’s applications or those from third parties. Sense and blink are new to me but were customized also to my likes. The camera has some innovative features which I have tried but is something I am not interested in a cell phone.
Have been conducting some “home tests” on battery life and noticed that per the phone’s battery indicator, its consumption might not be linear; it shows that most of the charge is used during the first few hours and below 50% takes more time to be consumed. Nevertheless, downloaded today a couple of applications to monitor which applications are most important regarding battery use. BTW, with average use making phone calls, text messaging, accessing e-mails and web browsing, have been charging the phone every 36 to 48 hours (similar to the Droid X). I am not into social media or extreme texting.
Worth mentioning that changing from my three year old Moto-Droid meant switching from VZN to ATT but still in the 14 day return period. ATT’s signal is not as good as Big Red but so far has worked for me (except when in underground places). I have no objective elements to compare the One to the S-4 as have always considered Sammy’s phones “boring”, too wide and cheap looking; phones not for me. The HTC One looks very well made and the combination of aluminum with glass and black background on the screen makes it very attractive for all those that have not seen the device in person. So far is a “keeper” and if you have one, experiment customizing it, a really fun experience.

HTC One Mini Written Review
If you're a fan of the latest flagship devices but aren't necessarily a fan of the size, you might be happy to know that it's been a growing trend lately to include a "mini" version of the same flagship device that we know and love. But of course, with a smaller phone you can probably guess that you will come across some sacrifices made in order to make creating such a device possible. It might be the same device in body, but is it really the same device on the inside that made it a... more...
