The HTC One is in the same boat as the Samsung Galaxy S4. It's about to be replaced by something newer, something that could potentially be better in the HTC M8. Until then though, the HTC One remains a solid choice on Sprint and one that consumers should take a look at.
It combines a sleek aluminum design with a number of other big time features including a powerful Ultrapixel camera, 4.7-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, Android 4.4 KitKat, and the company's Sense 5 software. It should get the upcoming Sense 6 in the future as well.
It's a phone that will be replaced soon but it's still going to bring great joy to those that wind up buying it.
