HTC One Developer Edition 1.29.1540.16 update

While most of you have probably already gotten your hands on T-Mobile’s HTC One, some folks still haven’t had a chance to find one at their local stores. If your local T-Mobile corporate location was one of the many left out of the initial HTC One launch, you’ll be happy to know that the device should be appearing in all stores starting this morning.

T-Mobile was initially said to limit the launch due to supply constraints, but with the HTC One production track up to near-full speed it looks like that won’t be an issue going forward. T-Mobile’s HTC One does come with the LTE radios necessary to jump onto the company’s infant high-speed data network, but most people won’t care much without a widespread launch of said network taking place yet.

That said, it’s still a fine device to grab with its 4.7-inch full HD display, UltraPixel camera, Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, HTC Sense 5 with Zoe and BlinkFeed, dual front-facing stereo speakers with Beats Audio and more great features. IF you’re wondering what we thought about the device be sure to read our HTC One review. Chris went into extreme detail about the phone so you should walk away knowing everything you need to know before making a purchase decision.

Of course, if you don’t like HTC Sense you always have the option of waiting for the full stock Android, Google-managed edition of the HTC One. That particular device is being dubbed a “Nexus experience” handset and you can grab one in the Google Play Store starting June 26th for just $600. It will come with LTE support, too, so there are no compromises in terms of network capabilities if you decide to go this route.

T-Mobile users can get the device for just $99 down, with $20 per month payments attached to their bill for 24 months (the remaining balance is due if you decide to cancel wireless service before then). You also have the option of buying the device outright for $580. Head to T-Mobile’s site if you prefer to order online, and call your local T-Mobile store to confirm they have them if they didn’t already.

    w00t, go htc!

  • blue720

    It’s a nice phone. I hope that HTC and the carriers release the updates in a timely manner. Until then, I’m chugging along with my Note 2.

      SMART!

    Samsung held the manufacturers hostage long enough to make the HTC ONE dead on arrival. Sad/smart.

    • domatau

      wouldn’t exactly call 5M units of sale in the first month “doa”, it’s far from it

      • http://thebeeobee.com/ thebeeobee

        Yeah, but it could’ve been MUCH more if they had a supply available, you know, when blogs were actually reviewing it months ago. The hype has passed. Sad, but HTC is its own worst enemy.

        The Butterfly 2, however, looks like a good phone (great battery size). Guarantee they will screw it up, though.

  • Tony Lai

    Great now T-Mobile users have option other than plastic!
    Sure beats plastic in any way~

    • Blkegk

      I rather have the plastic s4 than the poor build quality of the One. Gaps on the One is horrendous.

      • http://thebeeobee.com/ thebeeobee

        Yeah, i felt one with a really rough edge on the metal in a sprint store.

        • MariaxNY

          typical joules Samsung sheeps.

          • http://thebeeobee.com/ thebeeobee

            Nah, not a fan of touchwiz and their “nature” themes, etc. I try to never use Samsung phones. But as a company, they know what they’re doing. HTC doesn’t. Bottom line.

      • MariaxNY

        typical joules Samsung sheeps

        • soondolee

          then what r u?
          u bash all the persons favoring samsung it seems.
          so u either htc sheep or isheep?

      I’ve played with a few Ones, and in my opinion they all had poor attention to detail. Power button way too recessed. There were sharp edges, gaps and areas where two pieces didn’t come together correctly creating a sharp over hang. Definitely did not feel comfortable in my hand at all. If I’m not mistaken, Chris even mentioned he had the same issue with his.

      The S4 on the other hand is flawless in it’s attention to detail, it feels like the higher quality phone despite being plastic. It also feels more comfortable in the hand. The S4 is also a beauty, it looks like it’s all screen with minimal bezel. The top/bottom/side bezels are too much on the ONE.

      The only thing annoying me about the S4 is the lag and stutter. Hoping they fix that fast. Also, Google needs to allow apps to SD b/c storage is an issue for some people.

      I guess you haven’t read the news lately, the galaxy s 4 is outselling every phone on T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon…including the iphone 5.

  • Chad Vincent

    > It will come with LTE support, too, so there are no compromises in terms of network capabilities if you decide to go this route.

    The “Nexus Experience” One as currently planned is AT&T radios, so no HSPA+ on AWS. (Most of T-Mobiles HSPA+ network)

    • HeatFan93

      The S4 will, so the Nexus experience out of the box crowd might settle for Samsung. Honestly, if people can get it unlocked before the release of the HTC One Nexus, they can switch to AT&T if they buy the phone outright and then root it for a Nexus experience.

  • dickbag

    I just got mine and I love it!super fast and build quality is amazing!!! Returned my s4

    • Blkegk

      you must have a unicorn Htc One if the build quality on yours is “amazing”

      • dickbag

        I guess? Hahah I’m really liking it a lot. Just how fast it is comapred to the s4. I guess if you like the ad card and it’s a must then go with s4. Oh and all the features. Both are amazing phones. I just like how fast the HTC one is. And the build quality on my unicorn.
