All New HTC One Sales Guide Leaks, Specs and New Features Begin to Surface

htc one 2014 m8-7

At this point, the upcoming all new HTC One has sprung more leaks than the Titanic. Multiple videos, pictures and looks at the device have come to our attention, and today we add another to that list. A list of “complete specs” and what appears to be a sales guide for the new One’s features are out for us to comb through. 

Even though we have seen a lot of the new One – what it looks like and what features HTC has put in – we haven’t gotten any real hints towards the actual specs of the device. GSMArena has a list of specs from sources that are said to be going into this new phone. The 5-inch 1080p screen will make the device measure in at 146.36 x 70.6 x 9.35 and weigh 160 grams. The 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 is nothing to scoff at either. Finally, the battery is listed at 2,600mAh, and yes, there is a microSD card slot built in for those who just can’t ditch the removable storage.

A new sales guide has also leaked, telling stores how to really explain to customers how to use the new features of the One. Boomsound, HTC Zoe, BlinkFeed and of course the “HTC Duo” cameras are all listed. As for the dual cameras, this guide gives us a better view of what they might be used for. It says the HTC Duo cameras can be used to adjust the focus of a photo after it has been taken, which sounds similar to the Lytro camera and the new Galaxy S5. It’s also interesting to note that the front-facing camera is 5 megapixel, while HTC is making such a push for their Ultrapixel technology. Any chance HTC goes 4MP (“UltraPixel”) on the back, but 5MP on the front? Talk about odd.

The section under “Easy Control” talks about how this new One will react to your touch even when it’s asleep, something the Moto X has mastered. You can “swipe the screen” of the One to access apps or BlinkFeed, but also double-tap to wake your phone. These are definitely the buzzwords that we will be hearing leading up to and during the official announcement of the new HTC One, but none of this has been officially confirmed by HTC so take it with a grain of salt.

Interested in the all new HTC One after all these leaks? Or is it getting to be too much?

    I so want this phone to succeed…but w t f htc…if lg and moto can do a good screen to phone size ration…why cant you? what makes you think anyone would pick this up in a store and choose it over a moto x or a g2? selfie mode?….ill give you that youll def make some sales there lol

  • James_C_L

    2600mah Lmao! HTC just doesn’t get it

  • Alan Paone

    I’m glad they are using the two cameras for something gimmicky rather than useful

  • Scott Webber

    I know I’m beating a dead horse, but this phone is HUGE. How is that going to fit into a normal pocket? 5.36mm taller than a Droid DNA? It’s insane.

    • flosserelli

      Stop wearing skinny pants.

      • Scott Webber

        I don’t. My loose fitting jeans have pockets of various sizes. It’s only an issue when sitting.

        • flosserelli

          My Note 2 fits in my front jeans pocket with no problem, and it is larger than the new One.
          I never put my phone in my back pocket for fear that I will forget and sit on it.

          • Jacob Mustin

            stop bein a fatty.

          • flosserelli

            I have been called many things but at 5’10” 147 pounds, “fatty” is not one of them.

          • Jacob Mustin

            it seemed like a fitting insult, when reading the string of comments ;) couldnt resist….. also the picture of peter ads to my false assumtions…

          • https://www.facebook.com/christopher.johnsc chris_johns

            yeah but it def looks stupid and its def not comfortable while its in your pocket

  • http://infotainmentempire.blogspot.com Rob

    3000+ mah battery would have had me sold. Now I will just hang onto my G2 and hope KitKat comes by the end of the month as promised. Well, I don’t think it was a promise but it was mentioned.

    • Menger40

      The G2 is not even 6 months old and is still one of the best phones out there. I’m really not expecting any Q2 or Q3 2014 releases to make G2 owners very jealous.

      • DanielMena9

        Isn’t the G3 Q3 slated? But I agree I enjoy my LG G2 more than bread and butter, if only Straight Talk didn’t break my MMS and I hadn’t bought a 6 month service card lol

      • http://infotainmentempire.blogspot.com Rob

        True, but I like the design of both the 2013 and 2014 One, as well as the boomsound speakers. And the two camera set up is interesting to say the least.

    • duke69111

      As promised by who?

      • http://infotainmentempire.blogspot.com Rob

        I think it was LG if not Verizon. By the end of March. Of course these are always subject to change.

  • Shadowstare

    As a reference, my Droid DNA is 141 x 70.5 x 9.7 mm. 9.3mm is not that thick.

  • tylerc23

    I just wish they would release it so I can see Sense 6.0 and just buy it already

    • Chris

      it will be much like sense 5.5 with a few tweaks….. next major redesign wont happen till sense 7.0….

      • tylerc23

        Sometimes a few tweaks are good though, like Jelly Bean to Kit Kat

        • Chris

          of course.

  • Tim242

    Damn that is a thick phone.

    • tylerc23

      From what I’ve seen it’s about the thickness of the (old?) HTC One
      Not that bad

    • M3D1T8R

      Not at all. The back is curved. These thickness dimensions are a lot less important than how it feels in hand.

    • LionStone

      Ergonomic rounded back, tapered sides, makes it feel thinner than it is, design innovation

      • tylerc23

        I found audio files under the UI folder titled ” Wireless Charging Started ” It’s all but confirmed now!!! :)

  • cpo122

    This phone is going to be wicked tall. I already thought the s5 was too tall, but this is almost as tall as a note 3.

  • Lee Long

    True, but they’re marketing to the “masses” and they love their “selfies”..

  • Lee Long

    To those complaining about battery. It’s bigger then the 2300 in the One, and I get through a whole day easily on that. My disappointment will be if the main cameras still have a 4 MP sensor… Weird that they don’t comment on that. I’m guessing that they can’t share the same sensor, so my hope is that they EACH have at least a 4 MP (Ultra, whatever…) sensor. That would equate to 8 total and certainly would make for even better pics then I get on the original One. Frankly, I take awesome shots with it, but the inability to crop due to only 4 MP is a pain…

    • Cael

      Everyone uses their phone differently though…and its not impossible for HTC to stick a 3000 mah battery in a phone thats less than 9 mm thick. Everyone else has done it.

  • CaptainCaleb

    Why is there a toe touching it?

    • flosserelli

      Megan Fox is doing phone reviews now.

  • Orion

    LMAO only 2600?? And those dimensions seems huge for a phone with a 5 inch screen. Yup those bezels killed it. I wan’t HTC to succeed but boy they make it hard on themselves.

  • Mchl496

    5mp front camera makes sense. Sorry but selfies are a big deal. Now if they could just add a flash to the front too…

  • bogy25

    ……..9.35″!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO TAHNKS – back in 2005 yes but not now

    • M3D1T8R

      Phones in 2005 were around 20mm, more than double this thickness. So you’re a bit off with your flame attempt.

  • M3D1T8R

    Width of my HTC DNA, released 16 months ago: 70.5mm.
    New One, not yet released: 70.6mm.
    Screen size of both: 5 inches.
    (No added water resistance or anything like that which might account for side bezels.)
    Can’t pretend I’m not dissapointed by this. Was hoping they’d shave at least a mm off the sizes, and it’s just the same (0.1mm wider).

    • Montrale Hammonds

      I loved/hated the time I spent with my DNA. The screen was freaking amazing bar none, but that camera and 16GB storage made me trade it in for a Note 2 when I got the chance.

      • LionStone

        DNA’s camera is great, and fast! What more do you want?

        • Montrale Hammonds

          Stop looking at the picture on your phone and you’ll see the truth.

          • LionStone

            I do, my pics look great!

  • Drew

    Such a crappy phone. Who the hell would buy this over Moto X or Nexus 5? Spec wise, UI wise, this phone gets trumped by Moto X and N5. Seriously disappointed. Love my Moto X.

    • Montrale Hammonds

      Lol spec wise? I don’t think you’ve seen the specs on eitther of those phones if you decided to take the time to write this and be wrong.

      • Chris

        @disqus_hN6lrjTWWc:disqus is in love with his moto x. Loves it more then he does woman.

        • Montrale Hammonds

          Ah, ok. It makes sense now. I love my Moto X because it’s built like a tank literally dropped it yesterday face first caseless and it came up without a scratch, but I’m not oblivious to it’s shortcomings. The 720p screen while most of the time looks great sometimes I can see the lower quality, camera is just wasted space, and the battery life while amazing when it first came out after updates doesn’t last nearly as long.

          • Chris

            It’s ok to like google and still use other services and brands….

          • Montrale Hammonds

            Yeah I don’t get this fanboy delusion that some Android users suffer from. I’ll get whatever is the best product for me. No need to bash fellow Android users…well any phone user at that it’s such a misuse of energy.

          • Chris

            it makes me ashamed to be an Android user at times…

          • deskjob

            Totally agree. That’s the whole point of Android… choices. And most people stick with a phone for 1 or two years before switching anyway.

    • Chris

      settie down. Great thing about Android is CHOICE.

      • darensdorff

        One of the greatest comments…EVER! Well said….

    • Menger40

      Drew has spoken. This unreleased phone that he has never been in the same room with is definitely garbage.

    • cizzlen

      Lol you are the most retarded person on this site. Close your account.

  • NexusMan

    How is double tapping the screen “easier” than single tapping the power button?

    • Detonation

      A lot easier to reach anywhere on the screen than the power button which is on the top of an already tall phone

      • NexusMan

        “A lot,” is an exaggeration. But, I will say, I wasn’t taking into account the enormous size of the phone. I just think a better solution, would be to make a more compact phone.

        • Detonation

          Definitely not as easy on a desk either. Pushing the power button requires you to also hold the phone in place so the force of pushing the button doesn’t move the phone instead. So you need at least two fingers to do it. Tapping the screen doesn’t have this issue.

          • NexusMan

            In ONE motion, I just pushed my phone’s power button, as my thumb naturally braced the other side. Two digits were used in the motion, but it was still just ONE motion. It was not this laborious, tedious, “hard” task. Tapping my screen twice was in no way “much easier,” just different.

          • Detonation

            One thing being easier than another doesn’t mean the second thing is “hard” it just means it’s not as easy as the first. But the fact you said it required two digits to push the power button, vs one to just tap a screen proves it’s easier and more convenient. Lets say your hands are dirty but I need you check something on your phone (ex: you’re cooking and need to see the recipe). All you gotta do is wipe off the tip of one finger and you’re good to go.

            Obviously you don’t find the value in the knock on feature, but the vast majority of people here are going to disagree with you. Perhaps you’ve never actually used it to find out how convenient it is.

          • Montrale Hammonds

            Or tap it with your knuckles

          • NexusMan

            LOL. Are you serious? 1st off, if my hands are dirty and I need to check my phone, I say “OK Google Now,” second as I said, “In ONE motion, I just pushed my phone’s power button, as my thumb naturally braced the other side.” Keyword: natural. There was nothing NOT easy or less easy about that than double tapping. I didn’t have to think about, make any adjustments, or move my fingers around. My thumb was naturally there. I have five digits that naturally fall into place when I reach for my phone.

    • M3D1T8R

      You’re joking right?

      • NexusMan

        no.

        • M3D1T8R

          Ok then… As has already been painstakingly explained by others, double tapping your thumb or finger on the screen, which you’re already tapping constantly, is for all but the least dexterous among us, a lot easier and more convenient than holding the phone and physically pressing a power button on the top or side of the device. But you probably don’t have a problem with Samsung’s gawdawful physical home button either.

          • NexusMan

            I, actually am not a fan of the home button, as I prefer on screen buttons, but the benefit of Samsung’s home button is for people like you, who apparently find pressing a button on the side so extremely painful and difficult, you can actually press Samsung’s home button with no problem, since it is conveniently located, well within your reach.

          • n900mixalot

            Home button is just as objectively offensive as tapping a screen. You don’t like it but that doesn’t mean others of us don’t. You’re entitled to your opinion. And that’s all.

          • M3D1T8R

            Obviously “offensive” is objective. But the question was “how is it easier”. Tapping the screen is objectively easier than pressing a button, just as tapping an on screen home button is objectively easier than pressing a physical home button.

          • NexusMan

            They BOTH are easy. Objectively, tapping my screen is no easier than pressing my power button. But for HTC, designing a phone with an easy to reach button for all, must not be easier than designing one with a hard to reach button for some….objectively.

    • flosserelli

      Obviously you have never messed with the LG G2.
      Think about it: Which is easier? Tapping a large screen a couple of times quickly, or reaching around to find a tiny power button that is almost flush with the body. It’s not as brain-dead simple as waking a Moto X from across the room, but it is much easier than waking every other phone.

      • NexusMan

        No, I haven’t. True, I forgot we’re talking about giant phones with flush buttons. It seems like a better solution would be to not design a giant phone with flush buttons.

        • flosserelli

          Phablet sales show there is a market for such phones.

          • NexusMan

            Complaints on this board, and the need to include “double tap” gimmicks, show there is a lack of appreciation for the sacrifices made in the design of these phones. You can make a phone with a large screen, without it being excessively tall, have excessive bezels, and without it having a flush power button that is apparently so “hard” to reach and “find.”

          • Chris

            I bet she would cry about it too… dumbass

          • NexusMan

            That’s hilarious. I hope that dumbass comment wasn’t directed toward me, since I agree with what you’re saying.

          • Chris

            not at all. it was directed to kim

          • flosserelli

            Ok, we get it. You don’t like the feature.
            Multiple people have tried to explain why it can be a useful feature. If you don’t don’t want it, no one is forcing you to use a phone with it.

          • Chris

            The idea is that you claim that but buttons are “hard to find”. At first yes, but after a while you’ll get used to it and can use the buttons eyes closed.

            the taping feature is nice and all but thats not what we are talking about here.

          • flosserelli

            Did I say the button was hard to find? Nope.
            Reading is hard for some people, I know.

            I was merely pointing out the fact that tapping a large screen is easier than pressing a small button.

          • NexusMan

            Actually, the reality of the situation is quite to the contrary. <y original post was a question as to how double tapping the screen was easier than single tapping the power button, as I did not understand. After a few responses, I realized and stated that I did forget we were talking about giant phones with apparently hard to reach (for some) power buttons when using the device single handedly. "Everyone else," as you put it, then proceeded to try "to convince," me that their "way is the only way." I never said my way is the only way, nor did I try to convince anyone of such. I've just maintained that pressing a power button is not hard.

          • NexusMan

            No. Actually, the reality of the situation is quite to the contrary. <y original post was a question as to how double tapping the screen was easier than single tapping the power button, as I did not understand.

        • M3D1T8R

          Oh, we have an Apple troll here, I get it now.

          • NexusMan

            LOL. Yes, my name must have given me away.

          • M3D1T8R

            Exactly. Perfect disguise. : )

          • LionStone

            Hide in plain sight!

        • Chris

          or not have flush buttons

          or learn to press the damn button…….

          • NexusMan

            Exactly. Buttons flush and hard to reach? Then make the button NOT be flush, and place it somewhere where it is NOT hard to reach.

          • Chris

            I can find the buttons just fine. sure at first it will take time getting used to if you moved to a new phone or they moved buttons around but after a while you’ll use the buttons with your eyes closed.

      • Chris

        well if you have to reach around and try to find a button thats always in the same spot then maybe phone isn’t for you.

      • deskjob

        I used the G2 for a few months shortly after it came out. I was intrigued by the double tapping on, but it was a bit non-responsive and in the end, I ended up conditioning myself to triple tap to ensure on. Not sure if it’s gotten better since then with updates, though.

    • Montrale Hammonds

      Because….convenience

    • Mark Aaron Collado

      its very convenient. im running sweep2wake and 2tap2wake on my nexus 5.

      • NexusMan

        I get the convenience. Just didn’t get why it was being touted by HTC as “easier.”

  • Tony Byatt

    “Interested in the all new HTC One after all these leaks? Or is it getting to be too much?”

    Don’t understand why the amount of leaks would have an effect in someone buying this phone…

    smh…

    • Chris

      people like @disqus_hN6lrjTWWc:disqus who loves his moto x

  • Dominick White

    So what will all the people who were complaining that the Galaxy S5 was crap because it it didn’t come with the 805, but the 801 , say now that the new HTC one is going to have the same 801 and not the 805

    • M3D1T8R

      Those people complaining about that were dumb in the first place. 805 isn’t even released.

  • Brandon Hopp

    2600mAh battery? :/ I’m disappointed in that. Everything else sounds pretty good though

    • M3D1T8R

      Exactly my thought. Was really hoping for 3.0Ah or larger like the Butterfly S from last year.

    • KingofPing

      801 is better, battery-wise than the 600 as I understand it and the rest seems nearly the same. The OG one getrs decent battery-life, and this should do even better.

      *shrug*

      not that I wouldn’t love to see a 3400mAh just for grins, but….meh.

    • droidbeat

      If it can go all day under heavy use with 2600, why bother making it bigger? We’ll just have to see.

  • Montrale Hammonds

    I was falling asleep until you said “Easy Control” color me intrigued but that battery size has me leaning heavily towards waiting to see if a Nexus device comes to Verizon (Probably wont), going with the S5 (really don’t want to), or just picking up a G2 and calling it a day (LG’s update track record + Verizon phone update bootcamp = nonexistant update). Man it sucks to be on Verizon but that coverage.

    • FAL_Fan

      That coverage though! And I would suggest waiting for the Note 4 if you can.

      • Montrale Hammonds

        I’m a phone whore. If my wife let me continue like I did last year I’d end up getting the Note 4 regardless of whatever phone I get at the beginning of the year but that’s why I’m being so tedious of which phone I buy now I need it to last longer than normal. That Note 4 will be amazing but it wont be here until September/October and I can’t wait that long.

        • FAL_Fan

          Yeah, I have the phone whore syndrome as well…I have the Note 2 and the Note 3 but I’m still going to get the Note 4…so long as it’s an improvement over the 3…but considering it’s Samsung I’m sure it will be!

          • Montrale Hammonds

            Yeah I had the Note 2 so i know how great of a phone the Note series is and I even got my wife to get the Note 3 which instantly made me want to get one and give up my Moto X. I’m still considering it right now lol 32GB storage with a sd card slot was the 1-2 combo I was looking for which is why I’m waiting on this HTC One if it can give me that with a comparable battery life I’d strongly consider it. That Note 3 is such a hard phone to ignore.

    • Chahk Noir

      Is Xperia Z2 coming to the dark si… I mean Verizon?

      • Montrale Hammonds

        Never in a million years would Sony put a Flagship on Verizon. That Xperia Play was a fluke that’ll never happen again but if it did I’d be all over that phone like white on rice.

        • aQuickBit

          Me too. One can dream :(

        • bd1212

          Evleaks said the Sony Sirius (codename for the Z2) would be heading to Verizon so we’ll see if that pans out. He’s usually right, though.

          • Cael

            If only they got the compact too :'(

  • Ralph Bretz

    Micro SD card is a nice touch and the 2600 battery is getting better.

    • Cael

      Thats so 2013 though :

      • flosserelli

        At least it is a bump from the OG One. It would not have surprised me if HTC had kept the same 2300 mAh battery.

      • Ralph Bretz

        true but for HTC it’s good. Battery size/life is their main weak spot. That and every HTC I had broke/died.

  • litobirdy

    The LG G2 just keeps seeming more and more impressive with how much they fit in the tiny space with the announcements of galaxy s5 and new htc one

    • http://techonblogger.ward.pro/ Stynkfysh

      I bought the LG G2 when it first came out, then returned it and went through the Note 3, S4, iPhone 5s, Sony Z1 Ultra, and ended right back at the LG G2. Screen Size to Dimentions to Performance to Camera ratio just isn’t matched anywhere else out there. The T-Mobile version is way better than the Verizon version though.

      • flosserelli

        The first step is admitting you have a problem ;)

        • http://techonblogger.ward.pro/ Stynkfysh

          Without a doubt. I have some specific needs for my tech and am always on the lookout for whatever will best suit my need. The Z Ultra would have done the trick if the camera didn’t suck so terribly bad. I mean, its frickin’ horrible.

          • Rojo623

            wait. the zUltra camera is bad?
            Is this the same for Z1 and Z2… I thought Sony was sensor king?

          • http://techonblogger.ward.pro/ Stynkfysh

            No. The Z Ultra is the 6.4 inch phone. It’s like an 8mp camera with a sensor from 2011 or so, and no flash. Very different from the rest of the Z series.

      • Dominick White

        I say the Verizon version is better because of the wireless charging. Trust me it’s a life saver

          Fair enough. I’d rather have a thinner phone and plug the cord in, but the convenience I can see it your way too.

          • Dominick White

            Now I wonder will the LG 3 have the 805 and 3gb ram

          • http://techonblogger.ward.pro/ Stynkfysh

            They pretty much led the charge on the 800 last year didn’t they? I would put money on it. They may also be among the first at the [even] higher resolution too. Being a display manufacturer and all.

          • deskjob

            Either by design or luck, LG’s product release cycle seems to be more in sync with Qualcomm so I definitely wouldn’t be surprised if they are the first out with the 805

        • Stephen De La Rosa

          Never thought I’d love wireless charging so much. I put charging pads on my nightstand, in the living room and my office. Now the only place I plug in to charge is in the car. Any word on wireless charging for the All New One?

          • Dominick White

            From the leaks I have seen it doesn’t seem so

    • LionStone

      No BoomSound…

  • Adrynalyne

    5MP front-facing camera???

    • MichaelFranz

      For “Selfie” mode

      • Adrynalyne

        I just…what…no…

        smh.

        • M3D1T8R

          Yeah it’s dumb but really who cares what they call it if it’s a good camera.

          • Adrynalyne

            I don’t care what they call it, I am just trying to make heads or tails of a 5MP shooter on front and 4MP Ultrapixel on the back, if thats how it turns out. If UP is so great, why not use it on front and back?

          • deskjob

            Yeah I am hoping the main camera is more than 4MP. I think cost and physical constraint are the reasons it’s not on the front. Since the whole point between the awkwardly named ultrapixel is that it’s bigger physically (thus letting in more light), it costs more and has a bigger footprint. Who knows, maybe it’ll be on the 2015 model.

            That is, if HTC is still around!

  • OneForTheGoodDays

    Do we have a final count of ultra pixels for the duo cameras?

  • Cael

    So the second camera is so you can blur all the noise from the main? LAME

    • DoctorJB

      Click on this picture and see if you still think it’s lame: https://pictures.lytro.com/lytroweb/collections/34/pictures/431133

      • Cael

        Were those pictures taken with a 4MP camera tho?

        • Montrale Hammonds

          I see what you’re saying but nowhere has it been hinted that the New HTC One was staying with a 4up. The front being 5mp would almost conclude it will be higher.

          • M3D1T8R

            At this point I will be very surprised if it is NOT still 4. But the 4″UP” and the 2nd sensor just might do the trick. We will see.

          • Montrale Hammonds

            Yeah here’s to hoping that second sensor was all that was needed. I hope it is because I want this phone badly.

        • DoctorJB

          Lytro cameras are 1.2MP…. MP isn’t everything.

          • n900mixalot

            I dunno … what happens when you want to take pictures with a wide depth of field? Sometimes all of that bokeh is just too much.

          • DoctorJB

            Depth of field is related to aperture and lens, not the number of MP on the sensor (unless I’m misunderstanding your point). It actually seems like this camera could be modified to support full depth of field (like the Lytro cameras already do).

  • litobirdy

    finally the dimensions are out. that’s a TALL phone for 5 inche screen. speakers I can understand, but that extra bottom bezel between screen and speaker

    • http://techonblogger.ward.pro/ Stynkfysh

      That big bottom bezel is common of some manufactures, isn’t it? I’m thinking their reasoning is that the bottom bezel puts the keyboard into a more usable position.

      • flosserelli

        Nah, it will just be a place for carrier logos.

        • Cael

          | HTC Verizon > |

          Yup LOL

      • LionStone

        Exactly! The capacitative buttons on my DNA are so low towards the bottom edge of the phone it makes it a tight reach with one hand. Just like on the N5 there is some space at the bottom so the Navi keys are at a more comfortable position.

  • MichaelFranz

    2600mah battery is disappointing. wasnt the 2013 one 2500mah? barely an increase

    • Cael

      HTC One (2013): 137.4 x 68.2 x 9.3 mm / 143 g / 2300 mah
      HTC One (2014): 146.36 x 70.6 x 9.35 mm / 160 g / 2600 mah

      And they only added 300 mah? Yeah I’m with you. HTC is so backwards and late >_>

      • MichaelFranz

        S5 is just 4mm shorter an is just over 2mm wider then the 2014 HTC. The HTC is a bit heavier but thats fine due to the all metal. It is 1+mm thicker as well. Im surprised that there isnt any kind of IP rating on the 2014 HTC yet.

        • LionStone

          Sealed phones already do very well with dust and moisture.

      • Dominick White

        Seems like lg and moto are the only ones really putting big batteries in their phones… (I am not taking account the Note series)

        • Montrale Hammonds

          Yeah but Moto’s vision isn’t a global one. The Droid Max is limited to Verizon “technically”. The Moto X on the other hand should’ve went the 2600 mah route.

      • Lee Long

        Not if it’s enough…

        • Cael

          The phone could have been made thinner. Thinner phones have bigger batteries than this and they don’t increase by 0.05 mm…

          • NemaCystX

            with the amount of stuff HTC crams inside that body, are you sure? have you designed/built a smartphone?

            I don’t think we as consumers realize how hard it is to design something this complicated. If I recall, the current HTC One had its battery sandwiched between the PCB’s and components and I believe that large black bezel on the bottom is also covering the boomsound amplifier pcb, not sure they would have been able to use that space for the screen as a result of that, probably why they kept the HTC logo on the bottom instead of just keeping it on the back

          • Cael

            Yeah I’m sure Samsung, Motorola, Sony, and LG don’t stuff plenty of stuff in their phones either.

            Plus HTC’s thoughts on “big” batteries:

            The company behind the popular HTC One X, HTC One V and HTC One S reckons a slimline casing is more of a priority for phone fans than a lengthy battery life. One of HTC’s chief strategy wonks said that after asking customers, the company ditched battery-boosting plans to concentrate on thinner phones instead.

            Fact is, HTC doesn’t know how to do it without making a brick. It’s going to be too long or too thick.

          • Lee Long

            Not everyone wants a thinner phone. I had an S4. It always felt like it was gonna fly out of my hand because it had no substance. I love the way the One feels in my hand. As for battery, I use my phone all day long, and I never run out. I’m sure heavy gamers might kill it, but I would guess the great majority of folks are not heavy phone gamers…

          • Cael

            Not everyone wants a brick either.

    • Carlos Lopez

      2013 was 2300mah but still, very disappointing battery size

    • Lee Long

      2300 and it’s more then enough for me. I have never run it done, and I am a habitual “user”!

      • Nick Klenchik

        What do you consider heavy use? My Nexus 5 has the same capacity and I’m always near a charger

        • Lee Long

          On it all day, surfing, taking pictures, checking facebook, reading DroidLife, using Maps. I had a Rezound before, and the One is just so much more efficient with the battery. I had also owned an S4 and they are comparable. I really didn’t feel like the S4 lasted any longer, probably because of all the crapware on it…

  • hyperbeatser

    I was impressed with the FF camera on the 2013 One, but if this is 5mp, damn

    • flosserelli

      What’s really gonna suck is if the FFC shoots better pics than the 4 MP UltraPixel camera.

  • The Narrator

    2600?

    Yep, Samsung and HTC down

    Those dimensions are huge. The G2 is 5.2in and 138.5 x 70.9 x 8.9 mm

            Really, “vulgar and extremely inappropriate”? Of all the comments on this post you single out my unfinished comment as vulgar and inappropriate?…

            I too am interested in the what the downvote meter would look like…

            By the way, took it down since MicroNix more accurately called it tasteless, which I can give him that.
