Krishant007: anyone asks me if they should get extended warranty, i usually just say no. Warranty is where the companies make their money back..

do you expect to keep this phone for more than 2 years? if you do, it might be worth it for you to spend an extra 80 bucks to get the warranty so you can have peace of mind. also makes the resale value of the phone higher as well


In my experience there is no need for extended warranties unless they cover things like broken screens,  there's almost nothing that's going to go wrong outside of the normal warranty period that the extended warranty will provide any benefit for.

mw095: Can someone please enlighten me on the differences between a "Telecom XT" HTC One vs. an unlocked HTC One. Are the hardware/radios the same or does Telecom only apply their branding on the software on their version?


There is no Telecom branding on the HTC One.

All that happens is when you put in the Telecom sim you get a couple of Telecom buttons on the screen.

Mine asked me whether I wanted to install the Telecom apps. I chose no. Boom, totally clean Android.

What's the deal with getting price matching at Warehouse Stationary? Do you just shown them the price on Noel Leeming's website?

Yup, just did exactly that and picked up a Note 8. They have wifi instore so can check the website, it's 5% off on tech and up to 10% on most else. Kind of offsets having paid $810 for my One a month ago. Gotta be happy with the price you pay at the time people, tech always gets cheaper.

I don't find it any better or worse than the iPhone 4

Lasts well if you're not using the screen constantly like I do...
