For a case, definitely hit up amazon with youshop for shipping, or ebay

I have the spigen ultra thin air on my HTC One its lovely, adds a bit of thickness, can feel a bit of movement in as it not 100% snug fit.  Thats a good thing as everyone who picks up my phone pulls the case off!

Once we get some cases I can go and look at in a physical store this case is a keeper.

I have just realised that there is a quite cool car hands-free app on the HTC One called, not surprisingly, Car. Haven't used it in the car yet but had a little play - could be very useful because I don't have a hands-free kit and although my 8 year old car has Bluetooth, it won't talk to the more modern version of BT on the One:

Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Is it me or there is no widget for stock HTC 'note' app.
I used to have a htc evo and it had a wonderful stock widget for notes and tasks.
Can anybody confirm? Also, htc hub seems to be gone..

No widget just an app called Notes and you can integrate with Evernote as well. So I use the Evernote widget.

Try Google Keep as note taker has widgets you can add to the home screen

Got mine yesterday from Noel Leemings.

However I feel the built quaility is quite poor, I want to exchange this for another unit, my question is what is my luck in getting a better built one?

Hard to tell from those photos ('cause I got nothing to compare to :( )

Did you end up getting the vodafone one cathy88? Or did your NL get the XT one in?

Your's doesn't look too bad cathy. My (second) unit from dse has a gap along the top and bottom corner.

I don't want to have to keep returning phones because of this issue, but without opening several boxes (that the retailer cannot re-sell), how else can you guarantee a good unit? It's getting embarassing having to keep returning an otherwise great phone.

As above and others here can't tell there is a gap and I started starring at mine and I'm sure it's perfect after going crossed eyed. Hopefully they ant trying to sell the same stock. What's your build version. I posed this earlier


Lipex666: As a owner of a HTC One I would like people who have hardware build issues actually post a picture what they are seeing and their build number

Looks to be the early adapters who imported early builds of the phone????    Observation here.

Note mine is build Ht34W  Vodafone preorder


Please post pics and build number with comments on gaps and build issues.


The zero gap is really for the back only, if you see the teardown you will realise the two speaker grilles are glued in and not part of the unibody. They are right but they should have been more specific. Nevertheless if you feel that your gap is larger than just a hairline thick, go and exchange. Also take note of your serial number, it was noted in XDA that HTC later batches have better QC starting from late March so any One with the serial FA/SH/HT33M or higher (e.g. FA/SH/HT34W) should have not much QC issues.

And you should be glad that yours is only about some small gap. The One X users especially the early adopters suffer way more serious QC issues than this. Being the first phone to have the unibody build, its build quality for the first few batches are really cmi.

PS mine has no build / gap issues buy the NZ telco supplied phone its great.

Cathy88, I think your one looks fine. If mine is like yours, then I would be quite happy with the build quality.

I will retake image after dinner and include the build number.

I got mine at NL at the end. They gave me a vodafone version at the same price so I ended up paying $880 for Vodafone which is 20% off really.


heavenlywild: Cathy88, I think your one looks fine. If mine is like yours, then I would be quite happy with the build quality.


Hey, The side is real bad I though. The volume button and the plastic extends outside of the screen as you can see. So if you run ur finger over it from screen side to bottom you can feel a huge bump. Also volume rocker is not aligned correct.

I will retake picture again later. iPhone 5 pretty bad at close up photos
