What is there to say about this phone? If I just write about it, I'm just going to ramble on and on. So to save everyone some grief, here are bullet points (my direct comparisons are to the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2, but mainly to the Galaxy S4):

The Good:

1) THE SCREEN: If there was such a better screen on a phone, I have not yet seen it. The iPhone 5 is lauded for its excellent screen, but at its current resolution, it trails behind the One's screen by far. Everything just POPS out at you. Even in direct sunlight, everything is CLEAR and BRIGHT. I really loved the Droid DNA/HTC Butterfly's screen, but once again HTC has outdone itself and given us a true masterpiece in 4.7" 1080p(468ppi) form. This is THE BEST screen on the planet right now - WOW!!!

2) THE DESIGN/HARDWARE: Why do most reviewers laud the iPhone 5's aluminum construction so much, when it chips and nicks so easily?? If you want a true masterpiece in design and craftsmanship, look no further. The One feels THICK and TOUGH. I don't have to worry about carrying this around case-less(except from drops, which is a whole other case). I will not be worried about this phone nicking and scraping like the iPhone 5. Personally, it may not have the flair of some of the Sony and Nokia phone of the past, but in totality the One has the best combination of design and craftsmanship. It oozes style and sophistication(*cough*Samsung*ahem*).

3) THE DUAL FRONT-FACING SPEAKERS: We have all been desensitized to the modern smartphones nowadays with their crappy, tinny, mono speaker. I remember the days of the Nokia n95 and n84 with their stereo speakers - whatever happened to phones after that? Whoever agreed to a mono/solo speaker with all the smartphones thereafter??

There are many competitors out there. They all want the fame, the fortune, and the glory that the iPhone has received in the past couple of years.
There are few competitors that deserve to be up there.
The HTC One Google Editions is one of them.

Build Quality:
Similar to the iPhone 5, the HTC One uses a combination of Anodized aluminum and Glass. The entire body is made up of Anodized Aluminum, but across the back, there are little seams that are make of white tinted glass that allow the antenna signals to go through. Similar to the iPhone 5's back ended top and bottom glass bezels.
This phone has a strong unbreakable feel to it, and because of the metal, has very little flex (the amount of which a phone can be bent [if dropped or stepped on]).
The glass on the front is seamless and has no vertical bezels and gives it a larger feel.
The screen is a 4.7 inch giving an insane 468 Pixels per inch. The screen might as well be a windows into real life because the entire screen has a square pixel density of more than 2 million pixels, and this is more than anyone has ever anticipated. its right up there in color accuracy, saturation, viewing angles, and sharpness with the iPhone.

Camera:
4 MP might not sound like a lot in the monstrous amount of MegaPixels that we have today, but this camera isn't actually 4 NORMAL MegaPixels. It's 4 Low-light attracting, larger than MP, color sharp UltraPixels. HTC has called it the ULTRAPIXEL because of the ultra permormance it gives.
Camera quality and every detail might not be as you want it, but its not that often that someone tries to zoom into a person's head to see how many grey hairs they have on their head. Or zoom into a blade of grass to see if its turning yellow.

Verified Purchase
I'm not much of an enthusiast so I actually waited til everyone agreed with the reviews.
I moved from iOS and I bought a Samsung Galaxy S4 on July but as soon as I turned on the device, I was feeling overwhelmed by TouchWiz. (Man what an ugly UI) And even using Nova to cover up the uglyness, I decided that next time I should go for a Nexus device.
My first option when I decided to leave the apple and try something new was the HTC One X+. I didn't knew what I was really talking about, I just knew that the reviews were good, the spec-sheet was amazing and the phone looked great. But I kept looking around until the wave of new high-end smartphones hit and then I knew that the HTC One was the right phone for me.
After using a high-end device like the Galaxy S4, I knew I wasn't going to be happy with a Nexus 4 and the Google Play Edition phones are not available on my country (neither was the HTC One with Sense until a month ago or less) so I waited knowing that somewhere, Google had an HTC One Play Edition for me and that one day I could get it.
Then the Nexus 5 came out and I was torn with my decision. The only thing I was hearing was "bad camera", "bad camera", "bad camera" and I mean, if the HTC One has a good 4 MP and the Nexus 5 has a bad 8 MP, I should go for the one that I like most (which by the way has the best speakers I've heard in a smartphone since ever).

And I did. My brother was coming to see me for Christmas so I ordered it and he received it. He arrived and the first thing he did was give me my brand new HTC One, I was thrilled! In minutes, I was already talking with some friends about how amazing the device feels and looks. You can tell just by using it a couple of times, this was the right choice (at least for me).
