Blue HTC One is Headed to Verizon, We Have Pics

Blue One

How pretty is that? Here is your first look at the HTC One in blue on Verizon. There probably isn’t much else to say about it, since it’s the same as the silver HTC One, the color has simply been changed. We haven’t heard yet if it’s coming to carrier stores or not. In fact, at least one source told us that the blue color is more than likely a Best Buy exclusive. This phone is from a BBY shop. We’ll see what other details we can find out, but would assume that it’ll run the same $199 on contract.

Cheers Skittlez!

  • MaxShadow

    Here’s an idea how about all carriers carry all colors. This “exclusivity” is BS. I just want a black phone (HTC One) using Verizon.

  • BUZZ KILL

    Does color really matter…. we all put cases on our phones!!!

    • MattyP

      Yes. I’ll buy a phone for a particular color that I might have been questioning for lack of certain things before it, but it has to be a close call to begin with.

  • isaiah perez

    Who cares about blue! Wtf happened to the black version?

  • SolarMan

    Do any of these devices have the ability to use the data connection & talk simultaneously? Last I saw do that was HTC’s EVO LTE for Sprint.

    • Christian Goodman

      Any phone connected to LTE has the capability. Other than the iPhone 5. Apple didn’t do it because they’re about themselves, not the costumer. Or buy a GSM phone. Simultaneous data & call on all connections besides 2G.

      • SolarMan

        Not true. I was able to do exactly that-what I inquired about in my previous post-on Sprint’s CDMA signal. And not using WiFi.

        • Christian Goodman

          Yes, you can on the LTE network, even on Sprint. I was saying you can’t using 3G or WiMax.

          • SolarMan

            And I disagree with your first response still for this reason: I have ALWAYS been able to access data & voice calls SIMULTANEOUSLY with the EVO LTE……on Sprint’s 3G CDMA. Always.

          • Christian Goodman

            Perhaps with the Evo LTE. That’s the first I’ve heard of it. I’d like to test that tomorrow when I can get my hands on one.

  • gr227

    The HTC One is $699 at Best Buy … will they price match to the $599 the phone is at Verizon?

  • sk8rat

    Where’s the damn black model? How are you gonna get blue when you don’t even have a basic color like black. The silver is fugly it would look much better with white bezels around the screen.

  • master94

    The people are demanding unlocked bootloaders. So we will give them what they really want or, give them a blue phone. hmmm, blue phone it is. Verizon logic

  • aQuickBit

    Stop making it harder to not buy this phone and wait for the Moto X! :(

  • MaxShadow

    Can I PLEASE get Stealth Black on Verizon…pretty please. Why is black so hard to get on the phone with this carrier? I’m still waiting.

    • Michael W

      Wait. My Verizon friend told me I can come order a black one through her. Is that not true?

  • NIGHTSCOUT

    Shouldn’t Verizon be getting a RED one?

  • Rob Schoenfeld

    Sure the HTC One comes to Verizon in colors. But Moto can’t realize what a dumbfuck move it is to do ATT exclusive on Moto Maker? Explain this to me someone.

    • ApplesNAndroids

      I don’t know – but personally, by the time I was finished using MotoMaker I ended up with a device that looks almost identical to the one I ended up purchasing with Verizon. I like it as it is. However, my mother who is on AT&T (with my aide) ordered a custom one. The back was a pink-ish color, with white front and blue accent buttons. It’ll be her first android phone. woo-hoo

      • Rob Schoenfeld

        Lol that’s awesome.

  • kashtrey

    God damn it. I want the RED SOOOO BAD lol

  • EnX$$

    enough said HTC has amazing taste they make the most beautiful colors
    out there for phones. i can’t wait to see the HTC ONE MAX so i can
    decide to but it or buy note 3.

  • Alex Buck

    verizon getting another blue phone.. makes no sense in my opinion. wheres are red version!

  • http://twitter.com/geoff5093 Geoff Johnson

    Am I one of the few who thinks that this color blue doesn’t look very good?

    • ApplesNAndroids

      yes

  • thislandisyourland

  • CasperTFG

    Yea, not a fan of the white plastic bezel surrounding the aluminum case. At least the black and blue color scheme conceals the cheapness of the bezel. Here’s hoping Verizon gets the blue One Max variant.

    • LANCE

      the bezel has to be plastic to let the antenna signal through, on the iphone its in the apple logo

      • CasperTFG

        The i5 has a metal logo. I just looked at a coworkers iphone before giving her Ron’s POC information.

        Edit: unless you meant the white plastic on the top/bottom of the i5?

        • LANCE

          yeah top and bottom, on the 4, 4s its in the logo

  • JohnBergman

    The stock photo that is on the box looks hideous (because of the glare), but it looks really neat in the pictures you guys posted.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    The renders looked lighter. Looks like Smurf Blue. I can only think about when it starts chipping…. Loving the silver one I’m typing on but the white siding makes me paranoid

  • Swauger

    Good thing I bought mine on Amazon off contract. I can send it back within 30 days for a refund. Then go out and pick up a blue one. I love the color.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Amazon? How much did you pay?

      • Swauger

        $650 but I used my Discover points to cover it.

  • Nathaniel Newman

    Another HTC One with the FM Radio disabled. Thanks Verizon!

    • SparkysShocker

      What about AM?

      /s

      • Nathaniel Newman

        No way AM could be in a mobile phone. The RF noise from the different radios for GSM, CDMA and LTE would make AM useless. FM doesn’t have that issue. So yes like the Silver one. AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile get the FM Radio option. But as usual Verizon has to put their 2 cents in and remove it.

        • SparkysShocker

          guess the /s hasn’t caught on….it was sarcasm.

  • Keith0606

    One word…. Hideous.

  • SparkysShocker

    Sprint gets Red, Verizon gets Blue, next you’ll tell me AT&T gets Pink and T-mobile will get Yellow.

    • Tim242

      When will people learn that phone color has nothing to do with carrier color?

      • btod

        Take a joke brah…

      • http://twitter.com/geoff5093 Geoff Johnson

        Tell that to T-Mobile who is suing AT&T’s AIO for the use of magenta in their logo.

        • Tim242

          And what do carrier logos have to do with phone colors?

  • rdrizzle

    Damnit. I just got the silver one last week.

  • Robert Macri

    I want the bezel that’s on the box’s picture.

    • socarwolverine

      Looks like the same bezel to me, just with more artificial glare.

  • Aaron

    I checked out the One in person today. Gorgeous phone but I can’t get past the horrible two button set up they have going on. The lock button is also in a terrible spot. for such a tall phone.

    • JoshGroff

      If you’re into modding your phone, there’s a thing to change the HTC button to actually have a function. (I don’t have a one, so I forget if it was an app or kernel mod, but it exists)

      • Skittlez

        it’s not an actual button. you can only change to swip up from the middle of the screen to go to google now, which is dumb, cause you can just hold home and go to google now.

        • JoshGroff

          No, I distinctively remember there being a mod to make it work as a wake-lock or something. Off to XDA to find it. >.>

          Edit: Behold, the power of the internet.

          • MattyP

            Is there any evidence this isn’t just the very middle-bottom of the screen where the display extends just a little bit into the edge black part? Been told by HTC tech team and reps that the actual HTC logo is not a button at all and can not be used as a button.

            I’ve noticed the One is touchy right by the edge of the screen with the Home and Back buttons, so it seems like this could just be the edge of the display.

          • JoshGroff

            I just got a one the other day, so I’ll mess with it some time today or tomorrow.

          • MattyP

            Did you get it from Best Buy with the sale for $50? Really good price!

          • JoshGroff

            No, I swapped my S4 with someone on Craigslist. Wanted to try out the One and I’m impressed so far.

      • btod

        Unfortunately there’s no unroot or s-off for the verizon One right now…

        • JoshGroff

          It did also just come out, I waited and grabbed a used DNA after S-Off was available, think it was only like a month or two wait. (For software S-off, not just JTag) My guess is it’d be about that for the One as well.

  • Bailers77

    Very pretty. I won’t buy an HTC again, but pretty.

    • Edwin M

      I’m right there with you. Now if there was a way to get the Google Play Ed. HTC One on VZW, I might consider it. Otherwise, no thanks.

      • SparkysShocker

        Even a full AOSP won’t get me to go back, same with Samsung. I can get over Motorola’s Fort Knox Bootloaders just because of their radios.

        • LionStone

          Signal strength…Droid Maxx on the left…Droid DNA on the right

          • SparkysShocker

            In my experience although havent had an HTC phone since the Thunderbolt my Maxx in my area gets service that the Tbolt nor my Gnex did

    • zwade

      ✓ery pretty… lol

    • CasperTFG

      Yes it is. For some reason it reminds of the lyrics to West Side Story’s “I feel pretty”. I’d was going to ask others to join in with song and dance but, was afraid you guys couldn’t keep up.

  • Skittlez

    ;-)

  • Zach

    Man I’m a sucker for blue wish I had the cash for this.

  • Armus

    Ewww

  • David Schendt

    Love the color but i would prefer a green color with black accents.

    • Ian

      HTC…Maker?

  • Justtyn Hutcheson

    OMG yesssssssssss. That thing is so gorgeous. I’m always a sucker for anodized blue aluminum

    • aQuickBit

      how many things have you bought in anodized blue aluminum?

      • anodizedbluealuminumfetish

        All of them. Duh.

  • Mike Aurin

    I actually dig this color. I wanted the bigger screen so I went for the S4 but I really like the look of this.

  • Eric R.

    Why would Big Red get Blue?

    • Tim242

      Why would you think that phone color has anything to do with carrier color? Does Sprint get yellow phones?

  • Kevin

    i want black!
