2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Because of the relatively low pixel count, the HTC One camera doesn't capture as much fine details as other flagship phones
  • Large size (The body is unnecessarily tall for the screen size, especially considering that the bottom speaker grille is only a design element)
  • Weak GPU (compared to CPU) means that gaming performance suffers
  • Average battery life
