    My father just bought a HTC One. Phone is beatifuly designed, has gorgeus Full HD screen and a wonderful sound (Beats Audio). Thanks to the powerful hardware Android just flys, works with no problems at all giving me a superb YouTube experience and Chrome for web browsing (Flash!). I really like my Lumia 920, but the lack of apps is killing me. May just buy HTC One for myself...

    It's a wonderful phone and Android itself is not as horrible, as I remeber it. As a matter a fact, the experience is great.

    I love my windows phone. But if it didn't exist I would probably be getting the HTC One. That phone is gorgeous.

    same, if windows phone DIDN'T exist I'd probably go for a S4. Glad Nokia stepped their game up for WP8 and can't wait to see what they have in store for the future (next November, when I upgrade)

    Ya I don't know but I've got a few buddies with the latest HTC One and it lags at times, even worse than Samsung devices at times. I do think the UI is very nice, unique and bright. However, the lag and spotty HW would keep me away.

    Again this is my opinion and experiences of users around me. If you prefer it over your WP8 maybe its time to switch.

    I actually agree with the OP. Chances are, OEM loyalty and price aside, I'd be slugging it out with a One. That phone is a few thousand feet above regular Android phones when it came to the effort in designing it.

    It's not just the looks for the HTC One...the speakers are amazing. I have an HTC One and a Lumia 1020. Love my 1020 for pictures and live tiles. Love the HTC One for listening to music and podcasts on. I'm too far down the wireless charging rabbit hole with my Lumia to even think of going back full-time to my HTC One. I love my Nokia wireless car charging dock. It attaches perfectly to my car with some crazy sticky suction cup kind of thing that leaves no trace of stickiness behind when I move it between cars.

    I've never had any lag on my HTC One. I have however had my Lumia 1020 lock up, have the proximity sensor stop working until reboot, volume control go up and down but not actually affect volume until reboot, video "start recording" but not actually kick the timer into gear until reboot, and my accelerometer is off by a couple of degrees (makes my Temple Run that much harder). Other than that, the 1020 is amazing...I guess I just really like the camera! :) I'm waiting until the phone has been out longer to get it replaced so I can get a different build.

    After the 3GS and the 4S my wife was tired of IOS and wanted to switch to a different platform. She likes my 920 but being an app junkie she didn't find most of the games that she plays on her iPhone so I suggested she try Android.

    Last week I took her down to BestBuy and got her a black HTC One and she hasn't put it down unless she was sleeping. She absolutely loves the phone and to be honest..so am I. The phone has such a fantastic premium feel and look like every review I've read.

    I was looking into getting a One Max with the 6in screen for myself but found that the internals was identical to the One, which is a bummer compared to the Note 3 with the snapdragon 800, adreno 330 and 3gb of ram. Hopefully HTC changes the internals close to launch time if it's going to compete with the Note 3.

    I know what you mean about the HTC One. Of all the android phones, that is the only design that intrigues me. I'm not ready to abandon Windows phone any time soon, but this one tugs at me.

    Everyone has their own opinion and to be honest, after experiencing different platforms, I stopped bashing those I don't use. All have pros and cons. The Htc One is very nice. If you like it, go for it. Won't say things like android s*cks or android lags because there really are devices that are decent. I switch between wp and android myself. Regarding the One though, just look out for this issue about purple tint with the camera. A couple of friends have this and after some updates it's still persistent. Other than that, it's a beautiful device

    Design is sexy - check
    Hardware is top notch - check
    HD screen - check
    OS smoothness - wait for 3 weeks and see it start to lag, not yet checked

    If you are extremely keen to jump for HTC One, I suggest you wait for 3 good weeks, let your dad use the phone and see the phone's smoothness after 3 weeks :).

    Am assuming he uses the phone regularly, installs apps and things rather than once a day to make a few calls.

    There are beautiful looking devices some manufacturers make, some are
    -Xperia T/S
    -HTC One X
    -HTC One

    but they take a beating when it comes to OS, the OS acts like a hook attached to a drag car on one end and a fat pillar on another, if you know what I mean

    I have yet to see an HTC handset that didn't drastically start to fall apart after about 13 months. This is going way back to WinMo days, all the way up to some DInc2's we had at work. After that, I swore off HTC devices for anyone, even someone I don't like.

    Just google "htc one lag", period.
    Am not saying htc one is pants, but if you expect it to be blazing fast with time, you are miles away from reality.
    Thanks to the sticky glue OS, it'll sometimes show signs of lag.

    Every OS does This, My windows phone lags from time to time but just like iOS it doesn't get clogged so easily so it remains fast and stable afterwards

    I understand that every OS lags, but Android needs more polishing and fine tuning from its makers, period.

    Genuine question - why does a little 'lag' matter?
    I haven't used the HTC One so I can't comment on that. I tried Windows Phone on a few Lumias in a shop recently. It didn't strike me as faster than Android (even cheap devices), but the UI is smoother than some cheap Android devices - less stuttering in animations. However, when you start an app, it takes just as long to start up as Android, often longer. The only difference is that the UI reacts more quickly to show a "waiting" screen.
    I found IE to be dog slow - really dire performance on page rendering compared to cheap Androids.

    I agree. I've had cheap Androids and high end Androids. I've also had cheap WPs and high end WPs. Overall I wouldn't say one's better than the other as far as speed is concerned, except a high end Android is faster than a high end WP. Now, I have a Nexus 4 which has zero bloatware and good hardware, so that's what I'm using as a comparison. I'm not familiar with the HTC One or the GS4.

    WP seems fast and smooth, but that's because the animation does an excellent job at hiding any lag that may or may not be present. It still takes awhile to open apps but it doesn't seem like it because of the animation. I turn off the animations on my Nexus 4, and apps open instantly. The 920 I had and the 520 I have now seem to open apps at about the same speed, because it takes however long the animation takes.
