It should be OK, it's not a cheapo Android like many of them. I know this is the iPhone 5 thread, but I'm looking to get a Nexus 4 myself next month, and being a Google experience phone, it should get updates very promptly.

Mike, the HTC One developers edition gives you the same direct updates from Google. Also, the build quality, screen, and a few other things make the Nexus 4 look like a toy in comparison. Go for the HTC One DE if you have access to it.

HTC One from a hardware standpoint is by far my favorite Android handset on the market at the moment. Beautiful, high quality materials/specs and well made. It's a shame they won't see the sales numbers Samsung is seeing with their constant stream of plastic garbage.

Congrats on the phone Shibbel. Keep us updated on how you like it.

HTC One has some pretty damn impressive specs, quad core, 1080p...dayum. It has some Monster/BeatsByDre speaker in it....does this mean this will be the first Android device ever that supports ControlTalk?

You see this as a good thing?

In the case of the HTC One, very much so. It kills every mobile phone, ever, when it comes to volume and sound.

Thanks, I'll have a look at the HTC. Don't think it's available here, but I'm going to the UK next month for a few weeks. Might be available there. It'll have to be unlocked and off-contract.

Crap,I'm on Sprint in Houston, Tx and just bought a cash Samsung Note 2 so I didn't have to renew my contract ( I have 9 months left ).

Sprint is CDMA. Could an HTC One work on their network? It sounds like the nicest current hardware.

I'm not too tech savvy nor a heavy user and I am enjoying the Note 2 ( I don't mind the size at all ). The build quality is nothing special though. Do most of you experts consider the HTC One superior to the Note 2? What are the advantages?

Missed seeing it. I went to the one downtown a few years ago.

These days I generally read just the CE Forum and a little other stuff.

I'm fascinated by tech but don't know much.

If any SF member is in the Galleria area, and wants a coffee or anything at the Starbucks on Richmond and Chimney Rock, or PO Blvd and Westheimer, PM me, and it's on me.

I have an office on Richmond at Greenridge and plenty of time and flexibility.

Except for the Nokia 808.  Symbian Belle might not be as smoothest OS around, the standard browser might suck (but that is why Gawd created Opera), the screen resolution might not be the the highest (but it is viewable in bright direct sunlight),  it might not have the most apps and it might be a little short on RAM BUT it has the best camera ever put in a mobile device, supports the most video codecs straight out the box, can swallow an 64 gig exFAT formatted sdcard with ease and it plays the loudest and the clearest of any cel phone I have ever come across.

So has anyone discovered a smartphone headset with a decent quality mic? Plenty of choices for good audio on the user's end, but mic quality uniformly sucks. I've had to resort to using no- mic headphones with the phone's mic. With that you lose convenience. Has anyone tried a gaming headset with an iPhone, and is the one that won't make you look like an escapee from a control tower?

wired or wireless? I use a jabra halo 2 for daily listening at work for podcasts and music. Can be bluetooth and also can be wired.

Jabo Halo2 Headset

Looks nice, but I would like to find a good stereo Bluetooth headset designed for athletic activities like jogging.
