The 32GB version of the One will finally arrive on April 19 for $199 on new contract – the 64GB version will run $299 on contract. If you’d like to secure yours early, pre-orders officially start on April 4 at 1:00PM CT, which is this Thursday. For those who pre-order, AT&T is tossing in a free HTC Media Link HD wireless HDMI adaptor ($90 value). The phone will come in both black or white.

    well there is still the moto x and Note 3, I’m holding out for the Moto X phone, and 50% of forums I go to say they are too. If the Moto x phone is a flop, I’m hoping to replace my Gnex with something used because I have to pay full price to keep ulmd. Let’s hope the Moto X holds to the rumors and hype

  • mroliverkc

    best buy is taking pre orders today in store. I was the first on

    • mroliverkc

      for sprint

  • dannyWHITE

    I couldnt help but stare at that clock the whole time…

  • andrew galvin

    any word on when the device will be available off contract? Specifically the unlocked developer version?

  • Austin Warren

    Not sure who wants to get stuck on another contract.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Not something many people think about. It’s just the nature of the beast.

      • Austin Warren

        Nothing like selling your soul to the devil

    HTC = “Have To Charge”

    • LionStone

      More like: Do NOT Have To Charge…Stock HTC DNA…bye-bye extra batteries and charger :-)

      • MatthewSimmons

        You’re the second person on this site to say the DNA has good battery life. I had the DNA and never came close to the battery life you’re getting. Makes me wonder if I had something wrong with my phone or a rogue app killing my battery life. Seriously I was getting 7-9 hours MAX. I just figured it was because of the screen.

        • http://twitter.com/jcardona1 jcardona

          I wish there was an easy to way to figure it out. I wonder if location has anything to do with it? I had the same issue with my Gnex. It would be dead in 8hrs just sitting on my desk, while other people raved about ridiculous battery life…

        • Brian

          Download Carat. It will compare your battery consumption to other DNA users, and tell you probable battery hogs, or bugs with apps. Better Battery Stats is also good.

          Other than that. Don’t use a lot of widgets, don’t use a standard app killer app (“smart” task killers like watchdog are okay), don’t use facebook’s app, root your phone and freeze/uninstall bloatware, bloated skins.

        • azndan4

          Change the kernel?

      • Austin Warren

        Yeah because your screen is only on for 3 hours. I get 6 hours screen on, on my note. At least use your phone properly before posting such a stupid photo.

        • azndan4

          Samsung fanboy. Not everyone needs a heavy, thick, plastic phone with terrible reception.

          • Austin Warren

            Not heavy, and I get amazing reception. Think over another insult. You prick.

        • LionStone

          Oh dang man, you sound mad because I get solid battery life with a 1080p screen!? Hah! Have fun staring at your dull brick 6 hrs per day! :-)

          • Austin Warren

            That’s not solid battery life. But whatever floats your boat.

          • LionStone

            Hehe, you are a crack up! 15 hrs w 25% left, 20 minutes of calls, 3.5 hrs screen ON, NO WiFi-all 4G and no power saving used! Lets see your stats in 4G all day on a 1080p screen…oh, that’s right, you can’t :-)

    Don’t don’t they wipe these phones down before making videos? I saw a hair by the speaker grille lol. Also these videos don’t need to be just one minute At&t

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Wooo!!!! Finally I may be one of the few on this HTC ONE bandwagon but I am not letting go!. . . Will be PreOrdering the 64GB and the free Accessory that I was already going to buy is a big plus!…. Who’s with me!??

    • r0lct

      I think HTC has had a bad track record, especially on Verizon, and people are just skeptical. The original DInc was awesome and even the DInc2 was good, but the rest have been duds (proof? look at their sales vs Samsung). Hopefully this phone can go toe-to-toe with the S4 and xphone in the market where it counts, the spec sheet is almost irrelevant at this point.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        It don’t think that’s what it is you’re seeing on the Tech Blogs as far as people being skeptical. If this phone had an SD Slot and 3000mah/Removable battery the tone of the comments on the tech blogs would be much different.

        • Bob G

          Comments, yes. But not in actual sales. Despite what commenters want to believe, SD slot and removable battery are not the determining factors of whether people will buy a phone and make or break sales for a company.

          • Tim242

            You are absolutely correct. I’ve worked in cell phone stores. Customers never ask about this.

          • Chris

            There’s no way to send messages to a user, so I’ll just reply to this.

            I just applied for a job at T-Mobile (I’m moving soon. I currently have Verizon but where I am moving, T-Mobile has the most job openings).

            What stores have you worked at? And how was it? Was it hard at all, or fun?

            I like phones a lot so I feel it would be a good job for me.

          • Tim242

            I have worked in an at&t and sprint corporate store. It is a very fun job…for a while. They set the quotas pretty high and pressure you to sell a ton of accessories. Carrier stores are the worst for this. Verizon is the worst on quotas and pressure, so I avoided them. I am not sure how T-Mobile is, hopefully it is better. I’ve heard 3rd party stores are a bit more relaxed, but they pay less. By the way, it’s OK to have a different carrier than you work for. Good luck with it…hopefully it will work out and you crush everybody else in sales : )

          • Chris

            Awesome!

            I looked up reviews of people that work for T-Mobile and they all said the sales quota are super easy to reach. Plus, I really like teaching people about phones, so I feel I would actually be interested to sell a certain amount of phones or whatever.

            Thanks a ton, it really helps me think I made a good choice

          • Dain Laguna

            blasphemy!! how am i gonna load 30 gigs worth of hd movies? how am i going to keep my 500gb collection of music all on my phone???

          • http://twitter.com/jcardona1 jcardona

            Yup. You can have the best phone in the world but without the marketing campaign behind it, it will never sell. Folks on DL can’t seem to grasp that concept.

        • chris125

          People are just skeptical with HTC’s track record and with the non removable battery and storage I dont think it’s as big of a deal with 32/64 gb,. but the battery people want more because samsung and others are putting larger batteries into their phones while also keeping them pretty thin and people just seem to think if others can do it why can’t htc?

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            True. especially with the damn batteries. HTC is known for 2 things. Great Design and horrific battery life.

          • chris125

            Exactly, hopefully with the One they can change that perception, but even so a little larger battery wouldn’t have hurt

          • LionStone

            They’ve already changed that perception with the DNA.

          • Austin Warren

            Yeah I’m about to slap a 9000mah battery on my note 2. Can’t do that on HTC.

          • Dain Laguna

            the market for batteries that big is a small one. and i bet i’ll meet 0 people in real life who will state that as a reason as to why they didnt get an htc one.

          • Dain Laguna

            well htc is doing the same. just because they didnt put a battery AS big as the s4, its the biggest battery any htc phone has ever had…and its honestly not that much less than what comes on the s4

          • chris125

            That’s not saying much for a company notorious for sticking tiny batteries in their phones…

          • LionStone

            Yep, the S4 NEEDS that extra battery, whereas the One does as well AND better with 300 mAh less!..proven in tests already.

        • Tim242

          Still a bad camera.

      • Austin Warren

        It won’t. The HTC One will be the downfall. They tried but its just not able to compete with Samsung, Apple, and even Motorola if this X phone is real.

      • azndan4

        Greatest # of sales does not necessarily = the best device. There are other factors such as a marketing budget or a company’s conscious choice to push one phone over another.

    • Tim242

      You must not care about a decent camera.

      • JoshGroff

        I’d wait to judge the camera until we see some solid hands on reviews, HTC has always used good cameras in the past.

        • Tim242

          There have been tons of hands on reviews. They’re all bad. HTC might have used pretty good cameras in the past, but this one is 4MP.

          • JoshGroff

            Oh, looks like I’ve been living under a rock.

          • Dain Laguna

            no they arent all bad. what a blanket statement. i

          • LionStone

            And keep in mind this test was probably ‘before’ the update…

            http://gizmodo.com/5990360/htc-one-ultrapixel-camera-how-does-it-stack-up

            Bottom Line
            The HTC One’s “UltraPixel” camera sounds like marketing palaver, but actually makes for an impressive shooter. In each situation we tested, the HTC One’s camera performed on par with—or better than—the competition. Whether it beats out the excellent Lumia 920 might come down to personal preference, but there’s no denying the HTC One’s camera exhibits such great low-light performance (both with and without flash) that it’s clearly one of the best cameras on a smartphone you could actually buy.

          • http://twitter.com/jcardona1 jcardona

            Why are you so stuck on megapixels? I thought the general public should be smart enough to know by now that MPs don’t mean squat when it comes to image quality. The way you talk makes it seems like a 13mp camera phone will be better than a 6mp DSLR, and we all know that’s far from true.

          • Tim242

            Megapixels aren’t all that is important, but they are certainly important. That is what makes up the picture. By the way you’re talking, 1MP would be enough. Every reviewer has said that the pics lack detail. 13MP may not be a lot better than 8, but 8 is definitely a lot better than 4.

          • http://twitter.com/jcardona1 jcardona

            They are important if you’re making prints, large prints. 4mp resolution is more than enough for a standard 8×10 or 11×14 print. Besides, who would want to print a photo from a cell phone, or even a P&S camera? I wouldn’t. The tech isn’t there yet. I require a good camera just as much as the next guy but I don’t get hung up on megapixels because I don’t intend on printing photos and I’m not a pixel-counter viewing pics at a 100% crop.

            EDIT: And I’d say this photo shows the HTC One camera provides PLENTY of detail

            http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/18hdew0zfr6bqjpg/original.jpg

          • Tim242

            I rarely print photos. However, I crop them every day. You can’t crop or zoom into a 4MP photo and see anything but a blur. You may have low standards from phone pics, but I do not.

          • http://twitter.com/jcardona1 jcardona

            So do I. Show me a cell phone photo that won’t lose image quality when you zoom/crop. They all do. But on your point, here’s a 100% crop of an HTC One photo. So I ask, what are you basing your mindless bashing on? These clearly proves the HTC One takes better pictures than the iPhone 5 and the Lumia 920

            http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/18hdevx170sn4jpg/original.jpg

          • Tim242

            I’m basing it on every review of the camera: The Verge, Engadget, Android Central. They all say that the camera is not that good in regular photos, and that the low light photos have too much noise reduction. That pic you posted is not great from either, and doesn’t specify which iPhone.

          • http://twitter.com/jcardona1 jcardona

            iPhone 5. You can see the full review here. No BS, just a straight up picture comparison…

            http://gizmodo.com/5990360/htc-one-ultrapixel-camera-how-does-it-stack-up

          • Tim242

            In reading the comments, everybody disagrees with that. I’ve seen iPhone 5 pics…they are much better than that. My Note 2 takes better than those as well.

          • http://twitter.com/jcardona1 jcardona

            LOL here we go with the conspiracy photo tampering argument. All that aside, just act like the iPhone 5 and Lumia 920 aren’t even there. You can’t sit there and honestly say that the HTC One takes horrible pictures. Every single example looks great. You can even view them in full resolution.

          • azndan4

            Samsung fanboy. These guys are even worse than the Motorola fanboys.

          • Guest

            Just read your other comments and found the link. nevermind!

          • azndan4

            1MP does not = 4MP. 4UP does not = 4MP.

          • Tim242

            There is no such thing as an ultra pixel. That is a marketing term that HTC gave their 4MP camera with bigger pixels. The bigger pixels allow more light in for low light pics, but the number of pixels is the same. WoW

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        The Camera is fine. And any issue so far seem to be fixable by a software update.

        • Tim242

          The camera is only fine if all you plan to take are twitter and instagram pics. A 4MP camera at a time when people are replacing their point and shoots with their phone, is not fine.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            That’s the only kind of pics I take with my phone. So it’s fine with me. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook. I’ll be fine :-)

          • Austin Warren

            Too bad instagram for android blows.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            Lol man you take a picture, filter it and post it. There’s not much else to do there.

          • Austin Warren

            After it distorts it and turns it into trash. Unlike the iOS app.

          • Dain Laguna

            the instagram app on my wifes iphone has the same effect on photos that my instagram app does….so, not sure if serious?

          • Austin Warren

            Not when I used it last on an apple device.

          • Tim242

            Well, looks like it’s a match! (The Target Lady)

          • http://twitter.com/jcardona1 jcardona

            You sound so ignorant when you go on and on about megapixels. You’re living proof that clever marketing can turn you into a mindless sheep. Get off the megapixel bandwagon.
