    But then what would people have to complain about? :rolleyes:

    The stuff people nitpick gets more obscure as the iPhone evolves, so I can only imagine what the next "-gate" will be.

    I agree. HTC got it right and I have to admit they are the first company to beat Apple in terms of design.

    You can do the EXACT SAME thing on a black iPhone 5.

    People literally nitpick about nothing now. They are asking for something drastically different with no concept of what that is or why they want it.

    It's like a Seinfeld episode. A nitpick about nothing.

    You can do the same thing on the iPhone 5. Scratches can be wiped with a cloth easily (if they aren't too deep, but it's the same with HTC one). Do some research people, before posting nonsense -_-

    Yup'. You can scratch a key on it. True. But removing the scratch?

    So exactly how does this affect the day to day operations of either phone? :rolleyes:

    Said users will be so emotionally disturbed by the scratch that their shaking hands will be unable to dial or do anything. :D

    It doesn't. And no one claims that it does.

    The One has a lot of stuff going for it, but IMO this is the best feature of the whole phone. Until you've used a device with forward facing speakers, you don't realise how great it is.

    Serious question...

    Does it pose an issue with hearing the phone ring in your pocket? The face of my phone generally faces my thigh and, especially when sitting, it can get pressed against it pretty well.

    You can do the same exact thing on the iPhone 5, but the chamfered edges on both phones are quite prone to scratched and dings pretty easily

    I never owned the One, so I can't comment on that aspect. My only experience with it was when my roommate got one a week before we moved out.


    EDIT: So I asked him this question and this is his exact response copy/pasted here - "Obviously the sound gets muffled a bit, but in terms of hearing my ringtone go off it hasn't been a problem for me. Maybe I just keep my phone really loud or I don't visit loud places often haha. I keep it on my desk most of the time anyway."
