Tell us the “One” feature you wish the HTC One had and win an AT&T version for yourself! [CONTEST]


The HTC One is perhaps HTC’s finest device yet. Chris alluded to that much in our official HTC One review, praising several elements of the experience such as hardware design and revamped Sense software. It’s no secret that there are a few things HTC could have done better, though.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. A removable battery would have made it perfect.

  2. I’ve found that I miss my kickstand more than anything.

  3. I wish the battery was removable so it could be upgraded.

  4. If it had a bigger battery, say, the size of the one found in the Droid Razr Maxx, I’d be happy. Otherwise, the phone is excellent.

  5. Just based off the Sensation and One S, I still worry that it’s too large. 4.3″ instead of 4.7″.

    That and an SD slot and I’d have already bought one.

    1. I’m the opposite, I would have bought it had it come with a 5″ screen. That or a larger battery.

      1. Which goes to show you can’t please everyone.

        The day all reasonably-spec’d smartphones are 5″ or larger is the day I go back to a feature phone. I’m not down with the two-handed operation.

  6. None of the features here are must haves for me, I do think it would be great to have a dedicated camera button though. It may just be a placebo affect, but it always seems like I can hold the device steadier when using a physical camera button.

    It would also offer being able to quickly go to the camera no matter what app you are in, which I think would be a great feature. I think it was a feature of the EVO LTE, if the device was in standby, you could just press and hold the camera button and go straight into it. Or if you were in a particular app, same thing, press the button and BAM, CAMERA TIME!

  7. I think the expansion of the storage is the missing feature.

  8. Yeah, a removable battery would be pretty sweet!

  9. Why oh why can’t I swap out a drained battery with a fully charged one? Heavy-use days are impossible unless I’m chained to an outlet. (Otherwise, excellent phone!)

  10. Who will win?
    <—not this guy. I never win anything =(

  11. I really wish it had a removable battery

  12. i wished the htc one has a 16mp camera because i like to print my kids pictures and put them on the wall.

  13. The “ONE” Feature i wish it had was a Nexus logo on the back along with the Nexus button layout, ( on screen Nav, And power button on the side.) then i would buy this phone in a heart beat.

  14. Having a replaceable battery would be nice just to swap out for a higher capacity one. I also kinda wish it had the ability to take over the world….like Pinky….

  15. I know a lot of people don’t care but I would love a dedicated camera button. if I’m talking group pics or selfies it is just easier to use a physical button rather than touch the screen

  16. I wish it had a micro SD slot so the awesome camera could be used without worry about remaining space

  17. Removable battery is important. I went to a party on Friday, had 60% went I got there, 3 hours later down to 17% because reception in the apartment was terrible.

  18. A multicolored LED notification would have me sold on this phone.

  19. Where’s the poll??? Anyways a removable battery definitely

  20. A dedicated camera button would be very nice.

  21. a kick stand for dat 1080p super lcd 3 display. DAT DISPLAY.

  22. removable battery

  23. Battery…it might not be something that I need on a daily basis, but just the peace of mind of knowing I have the option on a trip where access to charging power is limited or during extended power outages is a deal maker. I’ve never purchased a phone without a removable battery. Now if you wanted to *give* me one, I wouldn’t turn it down!

  24. Removable battery. While I like that they’ve bumped up the size, I really do need to be able to carry spare batteries when I travel. I also wish they’d gone with a 5 inch screen, but 4.7 is “adequate”

  25. Even with the Li-Po 2300 mAh battery, I still would like the ability to purchase something that might be a longer lasting battery. I have done so with the last 2 phones that I have had.

  26. I wish it had a third capacitive button. I find the double tapping and holding a bit inconvenient at times.

  27. It’s a toss up between removable battery and expandable storage. But put a fork to my nose and I’m going to say the battery. Not just because I’d like to swap it out when I’m using alot of juice, but in the case where something might go bad on the charging port, I would have to send it in to get fixed n would be without my One!

    Anyway, thanks for the contest phandroid and at&t!

    EDIT: Oh, and this would come just in time because I’m switching to At&t this week, and don’t have quite enough scratch for a new phone. :-P

  28. the non removable battery was easily one of the things i would have changed about my droid dna, so i imagine it will be the same with this phone

  29. Battery…

    1. the battery already last more than a whole day with heavy use

  30. Removable battery is the most important feature for an Android ROM flasher. As someone who loves trying out new experimental ROMs such as PACman, once in a blue moon I have to pull out the battery to reboot the phone. It’s just more useful for debugging. Also on my old EVO 4G I had three batteries so I would just switch them out when it was low. This is one reason I bought the GSIII over the EVO LTE. The other reason was that Since the GSIII was nearly identical across the four major carriers, I knew the development would be strong. I’m glad to see HTC pushing towards the same thing, as they got the ONE on three carriers, so if they continue next year to make a studier feeling product, putting emphasis on the hardware of the phone like the ultra-pixel camera and the useful stereo speakers, AND let the battery be removable, I will jump ship back to HTC.

  31. As a power user, and someone who is always on the go and must stay connected, I think that having the ability to remove and replace the battery would be a useful feature for me.

  32. I wish it had three buttons rather than that HTC logo in the middle. I use the tasks button often so wish it had been there. Either that or make them on-screen buttons that we could configure.

  33. Gorgeous big screen, fast processor, great memory, awesome build quality. Who doesn’t want to use this thing all day?!?!? A removable battery would really help power through the day.

  34. I have to say the battery. At work sometimes I get awful reception the hiuce can be gone very quickly and the same thing if I’m out and about in a poor service area. It would be great to keep a charged spare and be able to just pop the new battery in.

  35. It was a toss up between removable battery and expandable storage, but since I wouldn’t root the phone a removable battery wouldn’t benefit me as much as being able to expand storage.

  36. I really wish it had an SD card slot! It would be useful on the 32gb version! The 64gb would be enough though. Really wish it only released in 64gb for $200 on contract, much like the one x+ did.

  37. Even though the 32GB is very reasonable, I don’t like the trend toward no removable storage in phones as of late. I don’t want to prioritize my media!

  38. Removable battery and stock Android would be nice.

  39. If HTC would have made the ability for removable batteries many geeky power users would be more apt to jump on board.


  41. SDcard and price….

  42. Being able to had extra batteries when traveling is key

  43. The ability to record videos and take still shots at the same time.

  44. In the recent devices, HTC has been known to have strong camera features and software. However, it rarely steps out from the pack in terms of resolution. I wish the HTC One was one of the devices stepping out into the front of the camera herd. With their solid software and pack leader hardware, there would never be any comparisons between the One and any other phone in that seasons release wave

  45. I think on screen keys would have been nice.

  46. Just make the battery big enough that is doesn’t have to be replaced. Sense 5 is much better now fix the other HTC problem, battery life.

  47. I kinda wish it had more on screen buttons. Not overly fond of the the two button setup…but hell, who knows.

  48. I voted for Battery Removal. Seriously, I want my devices to last for years, and this makes it harder. That said, I certainly won’t complain if I I don’t have to pay for one :)

  49. I voted for better battery life, as opposed to replaceable battery.

    I watch some shows on TWiT and Leo Laporte has been showing off his new One. He loves the phone but has been complaining that the battery drains very quickly. When he used the Galaxy S3 he carried a few spare batteries around with him so that he could switch if he needed to, but I don’t think that’s the answer. Manufacturers need to get over the obsession with making phones thinner and use better batteries.

  50. Being able to pull the battery due to a boot loop would be nice.

  51. Wireless charging would be my number one. I don’t really get why more manufacturers aren’t putting this as a standard feature on their phones. We all know with moderate/heavy use most phones won’t last a whole day. I would love to be able to have a pad/orb/pod set up on my desk at work so throughout the day I could place my phone on it and never have to worry about plugging/unplugging my phone. I hate carrying around multiple batteries and the one thing I love about my Optimus G is it’s sleek design, so bigger batteries that add bulk are out.

  52. I wish the one had a search button. I use that all the time on my current phone and I would miss that on any phone without that option.

  53. A kickstand to help showcase the multimedia abilities including the beautiful SLCD3 display and those boomsound speakers.

  54. Three buttons for sure. I found the button interactions awkward when I took it for a test drive at the store.

  55. Expansion slot for more memory, just like the micro simcard slot, I think that would be a cool new lil feature.

  56. Removable expansion, so I can load and sync photos and music onto it to carry around, but without having to encroach on the internal storage for apps and data.

  57. Not seeing the poll anymore so I’ll throw mine out down here. A kickstand would be cool, but thinking outside the box I believe the Samsung Galaxy Beam has a pico projector. HTC One with Beats Audio + pico projector = instant movie experience. Add a Moga Pro controller = fun gaming experience. Pick Me plz! :D

  58. From everything I’ve seen and read about the phone it seems to be a near perfect device. Not sure what else could be added to the phone.

  59. Sticking with my issue about the One X, needs a removable battery. I know it makes it thinner blah blah. I have a 7000mAH battery on my S3 and I love it. I much prefer my phone to be up for anything than something that barely meets minimum requirements when it comes to battery life.

  60. A microSD expansion slot is a necessity for storing your music library.

  61. I would love a bright notification LED!

  62. I really wish sense 5 was just a launcher replacement i could toggle on/off

  63. I wish this phone hade a dedicated camera button so bad…but i feel all phones should have one, or at least when you’re in camera mode the volume doubles as a shutter button.

  64. I wish the HTC One had 3 buttons. I feel like it’s a necessity.

    1. 3 physical buttons ? Because it has 3 capacitive.

    2. It does, the HTC logo can be used as a button using a custom kernel

  65. I wish it had a dedicated camera button. With such a great camera, a button to quickly get to the camera and snap a few pictures would be awesome.

  66. A MUCH bigger battery, actually huge would be great. I really don’t care if it’s removable. 4 hours of screen on time just isn’t enough. 8 hours would be much better. What good is a mobile phone if you have be plugged in all the time.

  67. I wish the phone had some actual decent performance to it

  68. Micro SD slot

  69. A removable battery would be nice, but I think it really needs that micro sd card slot, to make it #1

  70. The possibility to use MicoSD-card-slot!!!!

  71. SD card slot. Love popping in my SD card and good to go with all my stuff.. Nit a deal breaker though it’s beautiful.:-)

  72. I love the body and feel of the phone, just wish storage expansion was not an afterthought here. It’s always nice to have the option to gain another 32gb our 64 gb on the go.

  73. Google wallet would have been nice (I’m looking at you, US carriers!). But from the given options – removable battery

  74. I simply wish I could get rid of the ugly on screen 3 dot menu and remap the HTC logo as a dedicated menu button. Come on HTC, you added this option on the One X why do we lose it on the One?

  75. I wish it had a microSd card slot. This phone is supposed to have a great camera, and the HTC Zoe is great, but with the lack of microSd card it really limits what you can do with it. I believe I might find myself deleting photos and albums more often because of lack of space.

  76. SD card slot.

  77. A removable battery would be the best. Every android phone I have had except for the Droid Maxx HD suffers from poor battery life, not more than a day. Having the option to extend it when on a trip would be very valuable.

  78. Removable battery is my #1. They don’t last forever, you know. Wonder how ridiculously expensive the replacement will be?

  79. A removable battery would be nice!!!

  80. Obviously, a removable battery would be crucial because it allows one to use the device meaningfully after the battery loses its gusto without having to crack the blasted thing open and risk damaging it.

  81. Battery longevity just isn’t there yet – it needs a removable battery for people who travel or have very long work days, just in case.

  82. SD card slot – whenever the built-in storage starts to get tight (always happens, at least to me) that ensures that there can be an upgrade path.

  83. I don’t really care about removable battery or sd storage but if I had to pick something that I wish it had I would want a dedicated camera button. With such an awesome camera a dedicated button would perfectly compliment it.

  84. I voted for the microSD card slot, but I would love all of the features mentioned. I also agree with the button layout comment since it’s just weird having the HTC logo in the middle of two buttons. Bring back 3 buttons.

  85. A microSD card would be nice. I like to play with things like Linux on Android, as well as TeXPortal (which btw is awesome if you use tex/latex: you get the full texlive disto *without* having to root your device). Those take up space…

  86. With the S3 I just keep a few fully charged batteries laying around. Whenever i’m out of juice I make a pit stop by putting in a fresh battery and continue going. Down time is about a minute.

  87. I would love for it to have a 3300 mAh battery. that alone would drive more people to get One instead of the S4.

  88. Definitely the standard three android buttons, specifically the lack of a multi-tasking button. The two button system is just awkward and while it doesn’t lower the phones score in my eyes it is a dumb move and an annoyance. MicroSD seems more of an unneeded luxury with that kind of storage and I’ve heard the battery life is just fine.

  89. I want my phone to have 2 things- expandable memory and removable battery. I don’t care how silly that seems to people who don’t need it. It’s my wallet and I always vote with my wallet. With that said. I like that HTC offers 32 – 64gb internally. I could get by with that. But I hate running out of juice before the end of the day and not be able to pop another battery in.

  90. Expandable memory!!! I store a lot of music and videos on my phone..would love to have seen them add that optoon!!

  91. Replaceable battery is important — don’t need it often but when you do need it, it’s a life saver. Removable SD storage seems less important these days, since there are so many decent cloud-based solutions.

  92. Voted for expandable memory, but maybe should have chosen other. Mostly because I am on Verizon. That would make it a no brainer.

  93. tough choice between storage and battery but I’d take the storage expansion to easily swap between my tablet and phone when necessary. sometimes having swappable media is better when dealing with larger files.

  94. A replacement battery would have made this phone perfect. I sometimes need that option when I’m on a job site for the whole day.

    1. the battery of the htc one already last more than a whole day with heavy use

      1. I’m sure it does when you don’t take pictures with gps and the compass on throughout the day. And then upload them on the fly to our server. I have a Note 2, which has better battery life than the HTC one, and I still need to switch out the battery half way through the day.

        On a regular office day, it wouldn’t be an issue.

  95. I voted for the obvious microSD, but the little one that gets me is the notification LED automatically turning off after ~3minutes. It’s not very useful to know if you missed something if you can only tell within 3 minutes of being away from the phone!

  96. I think a dedicated camera button is the most under valued button on any smartphone.

  97. It should have a camera for being unibody plus use more screen realestate and get rid of touch buttons keep stock android

  98. More color options than just silver or black

  99. A microSD slot would be appreciated.

  100. I never realized how nice a dedicated camera button was until I got my Nokia Lumia 920. However, that’s about the only thing I want from that phone. I miss Android. WP8 just isn’t there yet. Give me the camera button and the insanely great battery life on a flagship Android phone.

  101. Removable battery would have been nice

  102. I voted for kickstand. The bigger these phones become, the more evident the need for an apparatus to help hold these monsters up!. I was really hoping the Sprint variation would keep the kickstand…

  103. microSD card so in case if the phone ever craps out, i can pull the card out with all my pics and vids and other files i have still safe. and i dont want to sync them to the cloud cause some are private pics/vids of my family that i dont want out there.

  104. micro SD card. I’m selling my nexus 7 32GB for that reason.

  105. Needs more cowbell.

  106. The lack of microSD slot was a deal breaker for me, but even with that, the camera and the lack of Android 4.2.2 would’ve stopped me from buying this phone.

  107. HTC one should have had a dedicated home button

  108. A dedicated camera button and removeable battery …Needed on every phone, IMO.

  109. It needs to have removal storage of some type. Most people will use 32gb up quite quickly. This is android, NOT APPLE.

  110. A real deal HTC FaceTime like app built in that works as good if not better then FaceTime! I use this feature alot with my iphone to communicate with workers and see what’s going on at my place. HTC does this right I drop my iphone in favor of the ONE.

    1. I don’t know if that should be an HTC feature… They’re such a small part of the market that it wouldn’t really replace FaceTime. At least not quickly.

      Hopefully this is something Google Babble (Babel?) fixes, instead.

    2. Just use gtalk. You can video chat, text chat, and call other phones/computers within the one app.

  111. The ability to disable HTC Sense and enable the stock android experience.

    1. Then Don’t buy an HTC Phone, Buy a Nexus. Why buy a phone but not want what the phone is famous for. If all you want are the specs, there are 8 korean phones with the same specs that you can buy.

      1. Got sand in your panties? Dude has a point. HTCs hardware is legit but their software has become one of the worst. I wish they made another Nexus.

        1. No sand. Just happen to be a huge fan of HTC. And anybody that has actually used a recent HTC Phone. Like Sense 4+ or 5 knows that it’s a huge difference from Sense 2 or 3. I have owned Samsung, Sony, and Moto phones, and like how easy Sense make HTC phones to use compared to doing the same task with Vanilla or other UI’s. But main point. HTC is known for it’s UI (SENSE) so if you don’t like Sense, why buy an HTC phone. Purely for it’s specs? Here. Buy the HTC One, then download a Vanilla Rom and root your phone. If you don’t won’t to do all that, then don’t buy HTC. Point Blank. Like saying I want a Ford, but wish they didn’t put all that Ford crap all over it.

          1. I fully agree. That Nexus wouldn’t have the camera software or features that make the One what it is. Sense 5 is also the best custom skin available at this point. If you don’t like it, put Nova Launcher on it and keep it moving. You could also root, unlock, and put a custom ROM on it. The One gives you options, on the best hardware currently available.

  112. Removable battery would be great. then I could change out for a expandable battery pack.

  113. I voted removable battery but I think we’re at the point where our mobile phones need an always on mic (when in that “mode”) that’s ready for voice commands.

  114. Dedicated camera button for sure.

  115. I wish had a better ui

    1. it already has the best UI sense 5 is super fast and 0% laggy

  116. Honestly I wish more devices had removable batteries.

  117. MicroSD card would be my vote. More storage would be cool, but this phone is still awesome!

  118. More removable storage space is always needed

  119. Removable battery because it’d be very helpful if you run a lot of different custom ROMs and your phone happens to freeze…

  120. I do like this phone allot. Feels nicer then the SGS4. But no SDCard nor replaceable battery is a let down.

  121. I’d rather it have a pure Android OS without the HTC skin

  122. i wish it had removable battery, would love for this phone to last more that my huawei pinnacle

  123. It should have a wiper, to clean the screen when I’m drooling all over it..

  124. I miss the HTC Kickstand days – sure they weren’t an important feature – but I could definitely see how they could have implemented one it with their design language. Here’s hoping for one in the next version – the HTC TWO? ONE TWO? ONE TWO+? who knows :)

  125. I wish we could power on the unit by pressing the home icon or the volume up/down for a second instead of clicking the top button.

  126. Expandable storage would be great! Also, if they could somehow incorporate one of those pull out antennas that phones used to have, that would be a dream come true…The only way to truly end a phone call is to push that retractable antenna back into the phone

  127. I know this may sound stupid and minor, but what I’d like in the HTC One is the ability to take pictures with a voice command. I tried this feature once in a Samsung phone, and I now I would like any phone I own to have it. Maybe they’ll add it in a software update, who knows, since HTC is touting their camera technology as the best. If they don’t, there’s always Cyanogen, who are adding this feature.

  128. I never win nothin

  129. I have Nexus 4, it’s non removable battery and No SD card Slot and I can Manage it well, not annoying me. I Wowed HTC one When saw it’s Pictures But Lack of Multi Touch Button, really disappointed me, You have to change all of your hand habit, just for nothing. Backward and not useful. I could wish have Just this button in the Right and HTC logo refer to home button.

  130. A removable battery would have been their best option. Storage is a non-issue anymore with Clouds.

  131. I wish the HTC One had a camera button. It has a great camera for pictures and video that makes it a necessity to expand on the nice features of ZOE.

  132. I honestly would have liked to seen the POGO connector on the HTC One. On that note, I would have liked to seen HTC use it more and make more accessories for it. It was actually one of the selling points for the One X+ I currently own, HTC doesn’t make ANY american accessories that use that feature, so it’s useless. I like the idea of not having to “plug” in the device, and to have the ability to just set it in and go. It also seems as though it would be more reliable than, say, bluetooth or wifi, when connecting to a music player.

  133. is a good smartphone but be better if The ability to remove and replace the battery!

  134. I wish it had the motion technology where you can wave your hand over the screen and answer phone

  135. Inductive Charging! Then the battery issue would be less relevant.

  136. I wish the HTC one had a removable battery. Phones rarely last me through the day…

  137. As a guy who is currently with virgin mobile I have been on the lookout for the phone to make me leave said carrier and the HTC One is the device. Unfortunately it needs expandable memory and has me up in the air on whether or not I should invest in such an awesome phone. Sure everything is in the clouds these days but I’m more of a keep it accessible at any given time guy. I’ve messed around with the One and I do love the phone but some I have a 64gb micro sd card in my HTC Evo V 4g loaded with music and it makes me wonder if cloud storage could be the way to go these days…

    1. There’s a 32gb and 64gb version of the HTC One. Just get the 64gb edition if you use that much storage.

      1. Unfortunately that version is only available on AT&T in the US, so that’s not a good option for most folks here.

        1. Actually Don Boomer could get the developer edition which is 64GB. He would not be locked into AT&T at that point. I would just get the unlocked version of 32GB’s which he could use with an MVNO like Simple Mobile or Straight Talk.

          1. Nope, the developer version only has AT&T HSPA+ radio frequencies, not T-Mobile’s AWS. Same thing with the 32GB SIM-unlocked version. T-Mobile has very limited 1900Mhz HSPA+ coverage at the moment, and it’s not DC_HSPA+ either like AWS. While it does have the appropriate LTE bands, considering that T-Mobile hasn’t rolled out LTE yet that would make a developer version useless on Simple Mobile too…unless he wanted to be stuck on EDGE almost everywhere. StraightTalk is doable as long as he ensured he got an AT&T compatible SIM though.

  138. I’ve had the htc inspire the htc one x and now wishing for the htc one.. they just keep getting better!!!!! love the dual speakers wish there was more memory like sd card so that it would be easier to share everything to my husbands phone but hey im ok!

  139. I’m still waiting for another phone with a fingerprint scanner. That’s my vote.

    1. right like you really use this feature troll

    2. Lol… I used to work for Phandroid and am friends with these guys. Why would I troll? Just because a feature isn’t useful for you doesn’t mean other wouldn’t enjoy it. Calm down with throwing out the “t word” when you have no clue who a person is. I, personally, like the idea of a fingerprint scanner. Sorry that you don’t agree.

  140. I want the camera button… I’ve always preferred that phones have them but they quit adding them… I guess if it has CM functionality and can take a picture by quickly hitting the power button its not a big deal though

  141. Removable battery, microsd, standard android buttons, better photos in daylight … But its great as it is! After the thunderbolt, I just wish I had more trust in HTC…

  142. battery removal is a must. I have 2 batteries for my GNex. I swap em out all the time. One runs out, pop in the other. Sure there are other solutions, but if I get a new phone, and know I will have it for at least 2 years, I need an OEM battery to swap in and out as needed.

  143. I wish the HTC One had onscreen buttons instead of the hardware ones

    1. it already has onscreen

  144. SD card. Just so I can segregate music and store it locally.

  145. The ability to remove and replace the battery, the reason being sometimes you have to keep a phone longer than you’d like and over time batteries start to lose their ability to keep a full charge. Being able to replace an old battery with a brand new one would help extend its life span by years.

  146. I wish they had a battery like the MAXX HD

  147. I wish the one had custom on screen buttons which said either one or HTC across the bottom but had the same functionality as the normal android layout.

    1. The thing I don’t understand about HTC’s desire to stick with capacitive buttons is that with so many apps still out there utilizing the menu button, HTC’s unsophisticated response was to create an entire row for the menu button. Why not just make an onscreen row instead since so many apps are creating one anyway?

  148. Onscreen Nav keys would be a dream come true

  149. voted for the camera button. not all android phones have that. and with the social media’s like facebook, instagram, that button is pretty handy.

  150. is a good smartphone but be better if can replace the battery!

  151. I wish the HTC one had a kickstand on the back much like the HTC thunderbolt did. It would look perfect with the aluminum body and I’ve always wanted a kickstand on a great phone!

    1. That would be true. But like the kickstand on the Thunderbolt, after use it will tarnish and peel, then people will compalin about why is there a kickstand. Can’t please everybody. Just get a kickstand case.

  152. I wish HTC One can be a Nexus device, so it’ll get the latest Android OS right away

    1. Definitely wish that too! Maybe this next nexus… Until then gotta rock my galaxy nexus.

    2. Exactly. If the HTC One was a Nexus device and got its updates directly from Google, it would be a no-brainer. HTC may think the Sense skin makes it stand apart from the rest, but sometimes that isn’t a good thing.

    3. Considering how light Sense 5 is compared to Touchwiz on the GS4, it really doesn’t bother me anymore. After all, the One has an unlockable bootloader (unlike the GS4), so you can expect CyanogenMod, etc. on it in short order.

  153. I definitely would have upgraded if the HTC One had a larger screen. In my opinion watching/recording videos & looking at pics, etc., on HTC phones always looks incredible and deserves to be viewed & would be appreciated more so on a larger screen.

    1. I agree. I wish they would have made it at least 5” screen.

  154. i wish that HTC logo in the middle did something. i played with the HTC One yesterday, loved everything except the HTC logo in the middle doesn’t do anything. Deceptive

    1. HTC. Logo is a usable button when rooted and the kernel hack applied…..

    2. Saw an xda video where it actually is a capacitive button. Required software mods to make it functional though.

  155. One thing that is missing that I wish the HTC one had is the ability to turn into a star wars laser sword to combat apple haters. :)

  156. QI charging would be nice now that I got the N4

  157. I liked the expandable micro SD slot, its useful for all my music files.

  158. I wish it had a built in microwave for my hotpockets!

  159. Having removable storage is a must for me. I like to swap out my SD cards depending on what I’m doing. I have one 16 GB card for my music and a 64 GB for movies, so not being able to swap the cards forces me to use alternative methods of getting my media on the phone when I need them.

  160. Touchwiz ;)

    1. troll no one wants the most laggy touchwiz on the planet

  161. 3 Buttons because well….that’s a core part of the OS that I use on my N4

  162. I wish the HTC One had removable battery and SD card Slot. I feel like these limit it’s funcionality.

  163. I love the phone. I just wish it had wireless charging and on screen buttons.

  164. razr maxx sized battery

  165. I would like to see an SD slot in order to have even more space and allow me to easily transfer files without relying on a computer to be the go between.

  166. I just wish it could make me pizzas. :(

  167. It’s so silly, but I wish I had that kickstand.

  168. I wish the htc logo were a home button… It’ll take a bit of time to remember that it has no functionality

  169. I voted for camera button, but I’d have also loved to see an open API for Blinkfeed so that other (more capable) news aggregators could be imported. Think how nice it would be to have your whole Pulse or Currents or Flipboard set up put directly into the functionality and fluidity of the Blinkfeed interface!

  170. I wish the HTC One came with a better name. And a sandwich.

  171. A fingerprint scanner to unlock the phone instead of pins or patterns would be great and definitely practical.

  172. A removable battery

  173. I really wish this phone had a 5inch screen and standard button setup

  174. Me want disposable plate dispenser.

  175. Definitely needs an expansion slot.

  176. I wish the HTC One had stock Android 4.2.1 not Sense 5+

  177. MicroSD memory card slot – you can never have enough storage. :)

  178. i wish the htc one had stock android! at least get rid of that big widget (dont even know what its called)

  179. I wish the phone had an Octa-Core Processor. [email protected]

  180. I wish the One had on-screen buttons. I don’t mind the other features, but I feel Google has it right by putting the buttons on-screen.

    1. it already has on screen buttons

  181. I wish the HTC One had onscreen buttons. The current button set up seems like a mess

    1. it already has on screen buttons.

  182. With the amount of “tinkering” (okay, just really messing up) I do with my phone, I really need to be able to remove the battery. Especially when I find myself with a pretty unstable rom. No me gusta.

  183. More storage=more zoe’s and more music

  184. The only thing else I’d want is a larger battery! It wouldn’t even need to be removable, just last a little longer.

  185. This phone is gorgeous! I hope I win the contest!!

  186. Both removable battery & micro sd card plus sim card moreover sport a 8 megapixel ultra camera and if practical octa core processor 2.ghz with 3 gigabyte ram.

  187. I voted for expanded memory. Locking a devices memory down is a noon.

  188. I wish the HTC One would of used the revolutionary micro cooling technologies that would show me exactly when its the right temperature to drink…oh wait its not a can of Coors Light, that sexy unibody aluminium cassing got me again.

  189. I would take on-screen buttons rather than hard buttons OR having a menu button if they kept the hard buttons.

  190. The One is fantastic. For me the biggest feature that I wish it had was removable battery. As a Nexus 4 owner, that’s the one thing that I’m constantly frustrated with.

  191. Micro Sd card slot …. I love being able to move all my files from one phone to another with ease

  192. ability to remove battery is important. I hate the iphone for the same reason. Feels like I am traped by manufacture

  193. On-screen buttons and 3,000+ mAh battery capacity

  194. Ut’s own unique note taking applications or maybe a tv…? But I love everything bout iiit!

  195. Im in love with the HTC One specs but just wish it had both a removable battery and sd card slot….this is the phone i may buy since not liking the S4

  196. The most glaring omission for me is availability on Verizon. I would have one in my hands right now if it was available on big red. Aside from that, it would be nice to have a dedicated multitasking button, wireless charging capability and some bundled beats headphones like my rezound :)

  197. I wish it had an SD card slot. 64 more gigs of memory would be great.

  198. I wish the One had the ability for people to disable the Sense UI for stock Android. I know, it’s a dream that’ll probably never happen…

  199. Why is kickstand an option on the polls

    Anyway, voted larger battery aka Other

  200. Duh the kickstand is the obvious choice, now that we have our dual front facing speakers the only thing we are missing is the built-in ability to have the phone slightly tilted away from your face without any help from your paws. Now we are getting that surround sound like experience to the fullest!!

  201. I wish it had a Sweep2Wake function, like the Z10. That ONE feature would make me want it more than anything else.

  202. It needs wireless charging and microSD card slot.

  203. Is the battery life any better now?

  204. Feature Needed: “blocking Mode” (like samsung) or “Do Not Disturb” (apple).
    I tested out the HTC One at my local at&t store yesterday vs the S4. I am not eligible for an upgrade so I am saving to purchase at full retail. I have chosen the HTC One over the S4.

  205. The battery is a big one since I usually root my phone, and a battery pull is a pretty necessary tool o_0

  206. I wish the HTC One had one of those programmable “G Keys” from a while ago. How cool were those things?

  207. If I could change one thing it would be a larger screen.

  208. Has to be sd and removable battery. The cloud is just not good enough or reliable enough at this time.

  209. A dedicated camera button would be nice

  210. OK, so I work at an AT&T store and have played with this phone for weeks and seen the complaints from customers (which are few and far between). The thing I really wish were there that the HTC One is missing are an SD card slot first and foremost, I don’t understand how come China is getting one that supports it, but no one else is. Other than that, I really wish the phone was waterproof and dust proof…. with such offerings such as the Sony Xperia Z, the Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro and the rumored Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, I feel like the build quality and the things that HTC are offering are already setting them apart, but having it as a waterproof phone would have set the bar sooooo much higher.

  211. I wish it had wireless charging (I love it my current phone).

  212. I would like the sd slot. I had a one x and loved it except the storage. The battery was fine.. And everything else I could do without.

  213. An SD card. Cheap and easy way to store lots of stuff. Kickstand is a good idea too esp with the front facing speakers.

  214. A Verizon version

  215. A dedicated camera button, and the newest version of android.

  216. If it had a removable battery/SD I’d be getting this instead of the S4.

  217. Xenon Flash, with only a LED flash it is not a real camera phone. When did you last see a compact camera with just a LED flash!

  218. I would have considered switching to the One if it had a removable battery…that was the deal breaker for me. I could of deal with getting 32 or 64gb model but battery is a big issue for me.

  219. Fingerprint Reader; So no more passcodes, face unlocks, etc. I miss the old flip phone sometimes where it took a flip open and one or two button the make a call. Finger print reader could make it more secure and faster and no one would be rear-ending each other on the highway typing in the password (maybe crash while texting but not unlocking it :)

  220. I voted for Other: A bigger battery. I don’t care if the battery is removable if it’s big enough.

  221. Definitely need SD storage. But camera button would be sweet too.

  222. my GS3 is shaking in its shoes

  223. To steal a play from the Samsung playbook, I’d like the HTC One to have a magnetic screen cover with functionality to view notifications, incoming calls, etc while it’s closed.

  224. I would like to have the ability to remove the battery and replace with a spare when needed.

  225. Wish it had 3 usable soft-keys like most phones; home, back, recent apps and a better placed power button.

  226. I really wish there was a bigger screen in the black area, a physical menu button, a rear notification light, inductive charging, and waterproof.

  227. Originally I was thinking a dedicated camera button would be nice. Now, I’d rather something a little more simple. I would like the standard three button layout (back, home, multi-task, in that order). More than sense that is probably the one thing that drives me nuts. For a person who is not the most orderly–I describe my desk as organized confusion–those buttons just get under my skin… can’t really explain it.

    1. After reading the responses I feel better knowing I’m not the only person bothered by those buttons.

  228. Removable storage is a must

  229. Sapphire glass

  230. I wish the HTC One had a replaceable battery

  231. i wish the htc one had the tradition android buttons instead of the ones it has now

  232. A stylus

  233. Thumb print unlock would be pretty cool.

  234. Really like this device but I wish there was a way to disable Sense 5 and run stock Android like disabling Facebook Home on the HTC First.

  235. The big “feature” I’m missing is definitely being able to have three buttons. Having two with the HTC logo as a button would if been sweet. That and a dedicated camera button as well.

  236. I’d take a Senseless HTC One. Vanilla Android all the way!

  237. I wish the HTC One had a kick stand because I loved mine on my old Thunderbolt. I always had it out and I always watched movies and play games on it with my Bluetooth controller. HTC One Is Amazing and it is only missing that feature. I think every phone needs one (a kick stand).

  238. Wish the One had on screen buttons. Makes for a much cleaner look!

  239. Replaceable battery, for sure!

  240. I think every phone needs a removable battery.

  241. I like the kickstand on my TBolt, so I voted for that.

  242. Removable Battery

  243. Dedicated camera button should have been implemented since HTC is marketing the camera prowess so heavily.

  244. Software navigation buttons…only thing not perfect about the phone

  245. MicroSD, music and pictures really end up taking a lot of storage space.

  246. SD card storage is the feature I would want the most.. I transfer things back and forth quite a bit.. having this option would be ideal.

  247. A removable battery – nothing like getting 5 hours of screen on time!

  248. I so wish this had a removable battery but regardless it looks like it will be a great phone!!!

  249. wish the htc one had software buttons like the Nexus line does…

  250. I’d like expanable storage and a removable battery.
    Heck, maybe even a way to take apart the phone without destroying it…

  251. I wish the HTC One had a removable battery, because I expect to keep the phone for many years, and even if I get a new device, I would be passing it on to family. Just hope that the battery won’t die out after a few years

  252. I wish it had a bigger battery, at least 3,000 mAH. This would probably make the non removable battery aspect of the HTC One ok! If not a bigger battery, then the ability to travel through time. :)

  253. Expandable memory would have been a winner! Yes, many people are migrating to cloud-based services, but until service providers get more consistent and competitive, one always has to be data-minding. What has resulted is that phone makers are producing fantastic handsets (like the HTC One), which cannot realize their full potential most of the times, because of carrier limitations/deficiency. This is the the reason why an expandable memory slot is still key to handset… one is given the freedom to carry all the media one deems necessary, in order to minimise on carrier dependent for bandwidth/signal/etc.

  254. I’m not sure if it’s included in the Sense 5.0 software but a Blocking Mode similar to the one found on Samsung phones would be very useful.

  255. The One and only one thing I feel the One needs is One dedicated camera button to compliment all of the other great feature that the One provides. Having One dedicated button would make getting that One perfect shot with the amazing camera, One million and One times better!

  256. Camera button would be the icing on top!

  257. Removable Battery, Though It’s Hi-Tech Phone Still Android Hangs :p

  258. I would have liked it to have a removable battery and a 5 inch screen would be nice too

  259. I think a dedicated camera button would be nice & a gif camera

  260. I wish the One had expandable storage, my sd card is collecting dust instead of music!

  261. 3 buttons and 1 phone for all carriers.

  262. I wish the HTC One had the option to change battery icon natively (without mods). Other than that, it is a stellar device.

  263. Expandable storage, no question. I can live without the others.

  264. the ability to remove and replace the battery would be awesome so I may play Beat Harzard non stop!

  265. A higher resolution camera. I want to be able to blow my pictures up and 4MP is very limiting. The ultra pixel doesn’t solve that.

  266. I really wish htc would have went a bit bigger with the screen, I love my note 2 screen size but hate the plasticy feel.

  267. After a few days with the one, the battery life is crazy good. No need for a removable battery, but an SD Card slot would be good since a 64GB SD Card is cheaper than the difference between the 32GB and 64GB model.

  268. wish it had wireless charging

  269. Menu button, for sure

  270. A dedicated camera button would be great. Followed by a removable battery and expandable storage

  271. My vote had to go with the sd slot as well. I realize they say more internal means we don’t next external but I like to keep things separate. I play games on my phone (which the One would be fantastic for) and they take up a lot of room, it’s nice to have the sd as extra plain and simple! But on the other hand this is the phone I would try going without for.

  272. I think a removable battery would be perfect. On devices with 16GB of storage, SD Card slot is a must.

  273. Dedicated Menu button

  274. I wish the storage could expand with a microsd card so i could store all my music on it with no worries.

  275. I wish the One had expandable storage using a microsd because lets face it 32gb just isn’t enough.

  276. The inability to replace the battery will impact the resell value when it’s time to upgrade. Also, what if the phone freezes and you need to remove battery to reset?

  277. Wish it was able to pay for my cell bill

  278. I had the DNA and battery was very surprisingly good considering the hardware. I wish the HTC one would last 3-4 hours longer. It would fit my daily schedule . Other than that the phone is perfect.

  279. I wish it could pause then continue the same video by pressing play so you could make your own gifs/vine like cut scenes. Similar to the S4. I really like that feature.

  280. I am a round the clock phone user. So i hope it has the removable battery.

  281. I wish it had stock Android. If it had that, I definitely would make it my next phone.

  282. I wish it had the ability to turn off Sense. This build quality and stock Android would be perfect!

  283. Inbuilt SSH/SFTP/SCP and VNC server so desktop syncing could be scripted and remotely controlled. I think this is one of the often overlooked features which needs to be built into modern devices. Imagine being able to basically extend your desktop capabilities to your device.

  284. It may be a unnecessary feature for some. But for me, a kickstand would’ve made this phone PERFECT. A kickstand + BoomSound would be a match made in heaven. After the OG EVO and the LTE, I’m pretty damn spoiled.

  285. A camera with more megapixels. I’ve seen reviews that have pitted it against the S4 and iPhone 5 and though it wins in low light conditions, most agree that there is some detail in the daylight pics to be left desired.

  286. Oh crap I picked expandable memory but I really want the 3 buttons on the bottom.

  287. sd card slot would have been nice

  288. Probably a kickstand actually, its such a small feature that can make a works is diffence.

  289. I wish HTC would get off the “thinner is better than usable battery life” train. I don’t care if a phone is 9 mm or 11 mm, but if it has battery life of greater than a day a two, it has my full attention, removable or not.

  290. I voted for expandable memory..not so much that I want to have more than the already plenty 32GB of internal storage, but just to have the flexibility of having my photos/videos on one microSD card that I can pop in and out of all my devices

  291. I wish the HTC One had cyanogenmod factory installed.

  292. I really wish it had an sd card. really the only reason i’m strongly considering getting the GS4.

  293. I Just Want The Ability To Expand My Memory Without The Need Of Cloud Storage I Love Movies On My Phone 32GB Is Not Enough, Also Even Though Data Throttle Isnt A Problem For Me.

  294. I wish the HTC one had a kickstand. The phone has enough memory for me and you can simulate a battery pull on the device as well, so I would loved to have seen a kickstand

  295. Needs sd slot never have enough storage

  296. A removable battery would make it perfect

  297. I voted for less bezel.


  298. I seriously wish it had ditched the capacitive buttons.

  299. I think the 3 buttons is much needed.

  300. Wish it would have micro sd support more memory the better

  301. Kickstand all the way!

  302. I wish the phone had a removable battery for 2 reasons. 1. It’s nice to have a spare just in case you’ve been away from an outlet all day; and 2. Sometimes when my phone freezes I need to pull the battery in order to reset the phone and use it again.

  303. Multi window

  304. Wireless Charging and an SD slot, also a bigger battery

  305. Definitely needs a sd card.

  306. I can’t get the 2 button thing. 3 was perfect, why mess with that?

  307. A microsd card slot would’ve been nice.

  308. The lack of a removable battery makes the One, not the one for me unfortunately. If it was waterproof, I might overlook this handicap.

  309. Like most everyone here, I agree that I wish it would have a removable battery and expandable storage. However, it’s current design would be impossible with those features so I’m alright with their choices. I do feel that the lack of a third button is a strange choice though.

  310. I wish it had Stock Android or at least the option to switch between stock and sense. And definitely on screen buttons

  311. Waterproof so my wife doesn’t break another phone

  312. I wish it had a bigger battery!

  313. I love the unibody look and feel but the fact that you can’t remove the battery bothers me.

  314. A microSD slot. The mfgs objectives needs to sync up with the wireless providers who now put you on tiered data plans and make you go to the cloud for your files.

  315. I long for the arrival of a functional laser projected keyboard, and projector

  316. Definitely a removable battery. Most of the time one battery doesn’t cut it if you use your phone a lot and it’s nice to carry spares and not have to worry about keeping plugged it.

  317. Camera Button would be nice

  318. I wish the HTC one had 3 buttons and a dedicated camera button

  319. SD card expansion would be nice.

  320. Expandable Storage, but i am willing to give the 32 gb a try.

  321. Expandable memory was the most important one to me listed as it makes swapping media much easier between devices. User serviceable battery and wireless charging would also be nice.

  322. I would like the ability to have a replaceable battery. This is what sets the Galaxy phones ahead of the HTC’s.

  323. A removable battery would have been great, It is guaranteed to lose its uptime after a number of cycles. User replacement capabilities is nothing to sneeze at.

  324. Really wish it had a dedicated camera button. So many devices don’t have one but there is an entire backside of a phone with one thing on it, a camera (sometimes flash.) a dedicated button that when the phone was locked pressed and held for say 3 seconds could launch the camera app and then click to shoot away.

  325. Having a microsd slot would’ve been perfect.

  326. i wish the HTC One had wireless charging.

  327. I wish the htc one had an owner like me and a dedicated camera key. It comes in handy.

  328. The one is such a nice device and while I agree with the visual style, I really wish it had a removable battery for longevity sake.

  329. Expandable memory! Nothing beats having the option to use a 64gb microsd to store all my photos/videos/music.

  330. I wish the one had a replaceable battery, its very important to me as my phone is used for work and must be usable at all times

  331. Larger screen size for me, wish they would have pushed it up to 5+ inches.

  332. I have to have the ability to swap out batteries. I play ingress alot and sometimes get into places that I am unable to charge, or my battery backup can not keep up with the demand on the phone. It is great to go from a 0% to 100% in a few seconds.

  333. Definitely the removable battery! A must have for business travelers like me who could be away from an outlet for an entire day…

  334. Expandable memory is essential

  335. An extra long (Razr Maxx-like) battery life

  336. The SD slot is a must for watching movies when traveling.

  337. Why cant they get the battery life of the Razr??

  338. I root all phones that I own and in doing so I need to do a battery pull from time to time. Not having access to the battery was a bad mistake. Not only for the hard reset but also for the possibility of battery expansion.

  339. Wireless charging…love this feature on the Nexus 4…all phones released should have this feature

  340. No Bloatware!

  341. 3 buttons like on the DNA would be great. That way we would have the option of getting rid of the dreaded black bar.

  342. I wish it had an microsd card slot and a bigger screen.

  343. All I need is a removable battery. If the One had this, it would definitely be my device of choice.

  344. I personally wish the HTC One allowed you to remove the battery, but I also would like a kickstand. I use the HTC EVO 4G LTE as a media device and I love that kickstand!

  345. A 5in screen or bigger is a must have for me. Im so used to my Note 2, when i use my gnex now its seems tiny.

  346. I wish the HTC One had on screen buttons. 3 of them to be exact.

  347. I wish the HTC One had 3 capacitive buttons with the built-in option to remap.

  348. Would LOVE a dedicated camera button because I LOVE snapping shots all the time!

  349. I would love to have a dedicated camera key on the HTC one. The ability to hold the camera key before the screen is on to turn on the camera is a really nice feature.

  350. I wish it came to Verizon…

  351. Needs a replaceable battery! After that it needs storage expansion options!

  352. All these phones with amazing cameras and we still don’t have a dedicated camera button? I hate having to reach awkwardly with my thumb when using the front facing camera. A physical button would make it so much easier or at least give me the option to use the sleep/wake button. They wouldn’t even have to add exra hardware.

  353. Wish it had a kickstand,

  354. I wish both removable battery and sd card were a option, either way i still want one

  355. I wish the One had a removable battery. I’d love to have an extended battery, especially considering other HTC phones I’ve had…

  356. For sure if the One had expandable memory, that would be great. It’s not that I have so much media I need so much more than the 32GB, but with the screen like it has and the speakers, being able to store a bunch of movies on it would be sweet.

  357. Verizon.

  358. Expanded storage. Zoe is turning me unto a shutter bug.

  359. Storage expansion is monumental for any high end phone this days. HD videos take a lot of space. Combine it with music, movies HD games and device gets filled pretty quick. I have Galaxy S2X (skyrocket) with 32gb SD card and i always have another SD card on standby, just in case i run out of storage.

  360. Without a removal battery, they leave themselves open to being iSued by iApple.

  361. I would have liked a microSD slot. It’s something that wouldn’t hurt to have and adds flexibility to the device.

  362. I wish it had a kickstand. Its very convenient when you are traveling. Especially on flights and trains

  363. I picked multi color led notification. That’s huge for me

  364. Removable battery would be my first choice.

  365. I feel like they should have included a kickstand, to further enhance the viewing experience that the screen plus the boomsound speakers add to the device. Being able to prop it up on a table or desk or what have you would be a nice addition to an already solid device.

  366. On screen soft keys (3 of them).

  367. Removable battery would make this sweet package even sweeter!

  368. My DNA doesn’t have either removable storage or battery, so I think I can continue to live without that. It does have 3 buttons, though, which allows for an option to use a long press of the recents button as a menu button, thus removing the dreaded black menu bar at the bottom. This would make the One a perfect phone.

  369. Removable battery in case of freezes or a quick reboot.

  370. Kickstand + Boomsound = Ultimate Portable Netflix Machine for Kids :D

  371. The ability to remove and change the battery is a feature that I wish the HTC One had. As a recent college graduate, I am on my way to start a real job and need a phone that can last me through the day.

  372. I wish it had wireless charging. I’m sure the next version will.

  373. (sorry if it got posted twice)
    Storage expansion is monumental for any high end phone this days. HD videos take a lot of space. Combine it with music, movies HD games and device gets filled pretty quick. I have Galaxy S2X (skyrocket) with 32gb SD card and i always have another SD card on standby, just in case i run out of storage.

  374. I would of love a camera button.I don’t like when out fishing have to touch the screen with fishy hands to take pictures

  375. I would really like the ability to expand the storage

  376. I wish the battery could be more easily replaced- maybe not even with an openable back, but just more easily accessible, a la the iPhone 5.

  377. Key Lime Pie: Because it is soo Tart and Sweet that it makes my left eye close.

  378. Lessen the 4 sides of the screen plus home button than htc logo is better. If they do that the phone shrink in size and become more comfy in pocket and in hand. When they add removable battery is additional plus. And I’ll use/keep it for long period of time, and latter a collection, maybe!!! ;-) have a good day to every one of us here!

  379. Every time I plug in the charger for my GS2 Skyrocket, it lets out a puff of smoke (very small) and shuts off. If it wasn’t for a removable battery, my phone would be dead. Now I carry 2 batteries in my wallet so I’m never without juice. I will never own a phone without a removable battery.

    1. Of course… I’d love a free one!! :-)

  380. I’m not surprised at all that this one is at the top but expandable storage us a must. I just don’t like cloud storage yet. I don’t always have a good connection nor WiFi available. So I like to have music and movies readily available

  381. I wish the HTC had a bigger battery, There are times at which I won’t be able to charge the device in the night, the HTC one will be empty the next day.

  382. 2 cameras one for the low lighting so the 4 ultra pixels and one good for everything else a 13mp camera this would make it the best camera phone to date. Im sure the the ultra Pixley camera is okay but I keep hearing it doesn’t to to great in photos with Alot of light

  383. being able to switch out memory cards out of it i.e. movies, music, apps, misc.

  384. I wish it had stock Android.

  385. SD storage would be amazing.

  386. Removable storage would be fantastic (removable battery would also be really nice)

  387. If battery life is good, no need to replace the battery. Expanding storage however, is a must. It’s like the mfg.’s are colluding with the cloud storage companies to reduce the ability to store your own media.

  388. A fingerprint scanner

  389. Definitely a recent apps button. I’ve heard the HTC logo is a real hardware button, so they might actually do this in an update. It’s just such a core feature for true multitasking.

    1. u just need to double tap on home button

  390. A Speaker Dock tops my list!

  391. MORE “software gimmicks” , eye tracking, HTC health, I want and all in one device! But I don’t support shady companies , Cough Cough, Samsung and Apple!

  392. Better battery….

  393. A home button.

  394. Removable storage and S-Voice-like app. Also centered home button would’ve been nice.

  395. A dedicated camera button would be nice

  396. A removable battery for sure!

  397. I wish expandable memory was an option. I dig cloud storage, but when internet in not available things suck! That’s the only reason I gave away my one s and got a gs3.

  398. Truthfully, i dont care about the battery or sd card, a camera button would actually be nice, I think ill get it either way

  399. removable battery would be great,

  400. Camera button, because having one increases the amount of pictures I take 3-fold. I’m sure there’s a better reason than, ‘it feels good’, but that’s the one I’m going to run with

  401. Removable battery was my selection. I’m not as concerned about swapping out batteries as I just wish it had a larger battery. From a top tier phone in 2013, I expect all day use without every worrying, “will I need to charge this to get through the day?”

  402. I think removable storage would be nice.

  403. The one feature I wish the HTC One had would be external storage. It’s so convenient to just switch phones with a SD Card. Other than that, the HTC One is the best phone (in my opinion) to be released so far.

  404. A removable battery would be sweet. Being able to replace an old battery would be nice…other than that, its near perfect

  405. only one answer here is there not, SD card expansion slot! we all know we can fill the space provided internally quickly

  406. I wish the HTC One had onscreen buttons.

  407. For long trips, the ability to swap out batteries!

  408. Ability to function (from the get go without installation of other software)/communicate easily with Samsung phones (yep, family divided here). Wife is on this..while I’m on a Galaxy.

  409. Expandable memory is important to most people jumping into a new phone. It’s just easy to swap that micro SD into the new device. Although, cloud data is getting more popular, it is still early to do without expandable memory.

  410. I voted for expandable storage. I have a 16GB SD Card I wish I could add to 32GB so I could just keep taking pictures and videos without worry. Even 32GB nowadays is not enough for those of us who frequently take pictures and videos of family and friends.

  411. A removable battery would have been great for traveling.

  412. I voted for a dedicated camera because the ability to expand storage can easily be remedied by getting a USB OTG and even if a phone has a microsd card, the game saves arent even saved on the sd card itself. The non removable battery doesnt bother me either because I have powerbanks anywhere I go anyways. For a phone that is being marketed as a phone that has an amazing camera, I would like to see a dedicated camera button. I mean its not a deal breaker but nothing compares to the actual feeling of a physical camera button. I have no interest on a kickstand on a phone, maybe on a tablet but not on a phone.

  413. i wish that it was sold in one solid color ie(all black, silver,white)..

  414. If the HTC One came with guaranteed upgrades within 3 months of an Android release I would buy one yesterday! It sounds like the HTC One X is being abandoned for Key Lime Pie though which makes me nervous about what the HTC One will be stuck with in a year from now.

  415. I just wish it had a bigger screen.

  416. I wish the HTC One had a 4 inch screen or at least a 4.3 inch screen rather than a 4.7 inch screen because if it was a bit smaller i’d be switching to it right now!

  417. Totally needs an SD card slot.

  418. This phone needs a dedicated camera button. With all the emphasis on zoe and ultra pixels I’m shocked it doesn’t.

  419. I want this for my dad. It would probably blow his mind.

  420. A replaceable battery for those long days away from a power source.

  421. MicroSD and a kickstand. No can defend.

  422. A larger battery would make it perfect. I don’t really want a super-thin phone, I want one that will last at least all day.

  423. SD card slots are by far the most useful item on the Android phones. It sucks seeing the Nexus and certain other devices not having this on their phones. I use mine to import pictures, video, documents, and files for multiple reason. I hope this does not become a trend.

  424. I want the ability to unlock and possibly remote start my car. i grow tired of the bulky keys jingling around in my pocket, trying to scratch my killer phone. just one less thing to carry would be awesome.

  425. I really wish it had expandable storage. I don’t change MicroSD cards very often at all, but the ability to add inexpensive, large storage makes a phone a lot more useful for travel (watching movies, listening to music, etc).

  426. If it was unlocked and capable of running CyanogenMod, I would like the HTC One. Give me a Nexus style HTC One please…one that costs the same as a Nexus 4.

  427. Removable battery!!

  428. I would say bigger non removable battery cuz I love the zero gap structure the way it is, but based on reviews I may not need a bigger battery for everyday regular use… So for my heavy use days I will opt for a battery case and problem solved so If I had to pick something I would like on this already perfect phone I would say a kickstand to better view media on this phone since it seems to be built mainly for capturing hearing, and viewing media.HTC one ftw

  429. Definitely removable battery would have to be the feature.

  430. Expandable storage is a big deal. It makes it easier to store large files and move them from phone to phone when the next best phone ever comes out.

  431. Removable battery is one thing that i cannot give up…

  432. i wish it had a removable battery for those long periods I’m away from a charger and want to use a second battery.

  433. Would prefer a removable battery.

  434. I been waiting soooo long for an IR blaster. I ALWAYS know where my android is but loose my TV remote all the time.

  435. Onscreen buttons would have been great! This thing would have looked even better with plain black, glass, and aluminum.

  436. removable battery would be nice

  437. I wish it had expandable memory. It would make it more comparable to Samsung.

  438. IMO, I think the biggest “con” is that while the camera is great for low light and night shots, (but unless you’re a vampire or night owl) the camera isn’t that great during the day and outdoors for general shots, I mean just compare these two photos and the difference is night and day. I think the “ultra pixel” is a bigger gimmick than any of the new features on the galaxy s4. The camera could be much better.

  439. —-> Stock Android with updates from Google. <—- This would have made the device a no-brainer for all of us i'm sure.!

  440. I wish it was on Verizon!

  441. The further along we ride down the road of one-stop mobile microcomputing, the more memory we will need to utilize complex applications. We don’t want to have to abandon a great product like the HTC One when capacity becomes an issue.

  442. Standard Jelly Bean buttons

  443. I wish it had virtual buttons.

  444. UsB 3.0/fast charge port. to allow fast data transfer, fast battery charging & some form of docking similar to its devices

  445. I wish the HTC One had a kickstand and did not have sense(or just the ability to disable it)

  446. Wireless charging and the htc logo being a functional button (without being rooted) would have made a big difference. Either that or just remove all the capacitive buttons.

  447. Curved corners and more a more natural feel to it.

  448. Battery and micro sd are not a big deal for me. The one thing I have gotten used to is bigger screen size. I’m a big guy and typing, even on my old Evo LTE, has become a hassle. the screen on my note two has made easier for me to type, but looking at the HTC ONE and how much attention to detailed it has, I am willing to make the switch. This phone is just beautiful.

  449. MicroSD and removable battery for me. Might not need either for the typical day but would like to have those features just in case.

  450. I voted Other, but then thought about the horrible button configuration. At least they should khave made the HTC the home button instead of dead space.

  451. As an owner of an Evo LTE, I gotta go with “I wish it had a kickstand”

  452. the biggest drawback for me is the lack of the removable sd card. I prefer to store my music on my card instead of always relying on the cloud.

  453. Expandable memory. I understand why file structures make things easier on Google in the case of on board memory, but I miss expandable memory.

  454. I not only looked at the HTC One, but looked at my past devices, the HTC EVOs, the G1 and the HTC Herald, to see what I felt like I was missing. I wish HTC with the One would have brought more new features to the OS that would help grow Android and Google’s services. There are apps on my phone that while I would like to use them, I’ve never been motivated to use them and I feel like that’s where HTC can improve and top the competition.

    I’ve always have been a huge fan of Sense since back to it’s Winmo days, but the more that I look back at the past, it makes me look at the question why exactly and this is the reason.HTC in the beginning brought out the features in winmo that I usually didn’t use and made them relevant to the devices. Other manufacturers are bringing exclusive features to their flagships that, although gimmicky, bring something new to the table as far as software goes. At least with Blinkfeed they are trying, but what about those Google apps that rest on my phone that I don’t use? Apps like Google+ fail to catch on in the mainstream because no one is going out of their way to push killer features on their device to give cause for people to move on to them. They add a new wide angle front facing camera, but they didn’t give us a new reason to use it. This could have easily been pushed with Hangouts…

    Once you feel like you’ve said too much, you’ve said way too much, but I hope that I got my point across. If you build it (the google app ecosystem), they will come, just like they came to HTC many years ago.

  455. I would like a few changed like ability to remove battery, SD card, or even a smaller screen. But the one main reason I will not get it and would love it if they changed would be to have the HTC skin removable. Until they do I will wait for them to have another Nexus phone before I buy one.

  456. Larger battery ftw!

  457. I wish it had removable storage. I feel like that’s quite essential these days…

  458. Noise-cancelling component: I do not necessarily use a Bluetooth headset often. One or a set of noise-cancelling components should help the quality of a phone conversation in conjunction with a HD-Voice component and related software.

    A memory-card slot would be useful unless HTC would introduce the 128-G.B. version of any high-end phone.

    Replaceable battery can prolong the life span of a phone because any integrated, non-removable battery within any phone still has a limited number of charging cycles.

    Front-facing camera flash + Front-facing 5-megapixel camera: both will increase the use and quality of video-chatting and photo-capturing.

  459. I wish that the HTC One had on-screen navigation keys because they allow for greater customization and because hardware keys are a thing of the past!

  460. I Wish the One had a microSD card slot. As a $200 device it should be able to have a competing niche against the Galaxy S 4 in memory.

  461. I wish it had three buttons or software buttons.

  462. expandable storage. 64gb is probably enough but with flash storage so cheap, it would be nice to be able to add more.

  463. I wish it was available on Verizon

  464. All I want is the One to rock the Stock UI.

  465. Replaceable battery for sure. Replaced the battery in my One X and what a pain.

  466. Of the options in the poll I do like the thought of a replaceable battery the most.

    But one thing I would like is the rumored “hover controls” of the Samsung S4 where you can interact with the screen without touching it. Something I have honestly missed in all Android phones since converting from my Nokia 5800 that had it in an app called eyeCall

  467. It is a nice piece of mind to have that removable storage.

  468. I would’ve liked it to have wireless charging just like they did with their droid DNA

  469. HTC needs to get in the game with removable batteries and expandable memory!!!

  470. A microSD card slot would be great help for playing music, videos, audiobooks when I’m somewhere I can’t stream.

  471. I just think its still a little early in the game to be eliminating ext. ( card) storage. If LG and Motorola and Samsung can still offer that why can’t HTC?

  472. I wish that the HTC logo was an on screen button.

  473. 3 buttons layout and bigger battery

  474. Expandable storage is still something I rather not be without.

  475. I’d say a bigger screen or no capacitve buttons.

  476. Ability to disable Sense would be awesome

  477. I wish the HTC One had a dedicated camera button. I used the HTC Amaze and to me the dedicated camera button was one of the best extra features it had.

  478. I wish it had a menu key instead of just a back and home key.

  479. A removable battery. Batteries lose their ability to hold a charge over time and after about a year they only hold about 80-85% of their original capacity. A removable battery solves that issue.

  480. All cell phones should have the ability to expand memory

  481. I wish the HTC One had wireless charging.

  482. I actually wish it had both microsd slot and removable battery, but choosing one, it has to be expandable memory. Expandable memory has always separated other smartphones from Apple, especially in the days of Android.

  483. Expandble memory, I have 30+GB of music and want to have it will me so I don’t need to worry about having an iPod or something. Isn’t that the similar reason cameras became, and are, so important on phones; cut down on having to carry a device for each task?

  484. Needs that removable storage, and three buttons would be an improvement.

  485. I wish at start-up we could choose whether to boot into Vanilla Android or Sense 5 Android.

  486. A micro SD card slot for photos and music would be great! I tend to take allot of pictures and fill up memory fast. Also, I tend to spend most of my time away from places where I can stream music over WiFi easily so it’s either use way too much data on my plan or carry my MP3s with me.

    And, for music and photos, HTC makes the phones I want! :-)

  487. I wish the HTC one had an SDcard expansion slot.

  488. I wish it had a voice activated video caption option.

  489. Really would just like a bigger battery, but second best thing is a removable battery. I use my phone a lot!

  490. i wish it had soft buttons. and i wish it had more screen real-estate. i feel like the phone just has a bunch of unused space which makes it unnecessarily big

  491. Expandable memory definitely. Have no issues with the battery. Easily get full day of use with above average usage. 4.2 would be nice too w/ photo spheres.

  492. Even though the 32 & 64 gb of storage is quite it would still be nice to be able to expand the storage when needed instead of always living on the edge of running out of space.

  493. I wish the HTC One had a larger screen

  494. A side mounted power button.

  495. I wish it had a second physical button, it would mean more buttons, plus I like to fidget around with things :)

  496. I wish it had stock android !

  497. Expandable storage seems to be a very popular request from many smart phone consumers. Question is why not do it? Its the galaxy s4s’ advanatge. HTC cant really afford to be giving away advanatges to its competitors. Also, if the camera on the ONE is so awesome, why not give it a dedicated camera button? Either way its an awesome phone with great build quality.

  498. The HTC One is a superb phone. But it has one serious drawback: power. The device should either have a removable battery or support wireless charging. To have neither means that recharge options are very limited. Fortunately, the device does have a HUGE battery that will meet most people’s needs.

  499. Screen Flex Technology – for all the people that put his beautiful device in there back pocket and acciedntly sit down.

  500. I wish it had a removable battery because having to constantly hard reset via tiny buttons is annoying… #romlifeproblems

  501. The camera button would augment the already awesome build quality.

  502. 3000+ mAh battery

  503. It’s almost a toss-up for me between having three buttons and having a replaceable battery. I like being able to swap out batteries on my G’Nex so I can have one battery charging while the other is in use. But in the end there are other solutions for extra power when needed, but fixing the button would be more of a hassle – unlocking, flashing – it would be better if the two button change never happened.

  504. software buttons gets my vote.
