bmt: Took my phone with the 2 stuck pixels back to the Telecom store this afternoon. Served by the store manager, told her whats up and she took it out back to try see the pixels (had to check with her minion in the end). Told me my only option was for them to send it to HTC, which would take an estimated 5-10 business days, and said it would probably be replaced anyway.

She implied because I had had the phone for 48 hours (quelle horreur) that it could not be swapped on the spot. Needless to say, not too happy. Thoughts?

Oh, and I went on online chat before I went, they just advised me "if you feel the phone you were sold is defective then I suggest you take it back to the store you purchased from".


No way would I be happy for a 5-10 day delay on a 48 hour old phone

heavenlywild:
NZtechfreak: BTW, in case any haven't used it before Widgetsoid is great for adding toggles to the notifications pulldown, lots of options and customisability and also adds a battery percentage to the status bar if the user wants. I really like it for the ability to add a flashlight and contacts to the notification bar, which many apps like this don't allow.


Thanks for the heads up. Does it cause any lag at all?


Nope.

Some people in this thread need to learn the art of throwing your toys around

'48 hour old defective device' loudly

And 'payed in full two months ago and you won't look after me!' loudly

Are very good things to start with

They weren't helping me much either but once people start watching the manager start talking manager crap you can get what you want.

The store managers have all the power they need to offer you the same discount as Telecom ones for Vodafone versions, and as neither come with a sim it doesn't matter which version you get.

After my hooting and hollering with the manager at the front of the shop I got $250each off the Vodafone ones.

Battery life has improved already here too Brad after just 5 days, if it doesn't improve further from here I will be content - was already acceptable but now I have plenty to go around - got home with 60% after a ten hour work day today with plenty of texting, video chat on skype, all day on 3g or wifi, forums and facebook, and a good twenty minutes of camera work.

Not to mention two hours of spotify


Krishant and heavenilywild - good to hear you guys are getting your phones finally you really deserve them!

Yeah you can. One of them is green, it is quite obvious when playing videos or when the screen is black.

@ Greaver - thanks for your contribution to society..

Wow what a phone! As someone who has owned an htc sensation and one x, it's great to see htc stepping it up a gear each year.

So far I'm loving blinkfeed, and I've taken some great photos and videos. Went to a roller derby game and shot a few videos, I'm really impressed with the quality of audio the mics picked up.

I'm usually not someone to fret over cases and screen protectors etc but I can't help but be worried about how easily the back could scratch. Has anyone ever tried Ghost Armor or Invibleshield before? I like the idea as I don't really want to hide the phone away in a case

So I have had my HTC One since Thursday, I am stoked with it,except for a few issues. First, I noticed tooling marks on the champhered edges. Second, it has a gap at the top like other units. Third, my speakers pop when playing sound intermittently. Fourth my screen intermittently has a line go across it, looks like one row of pixels dies. Lastly playing video the audio is out of sync.

NL said they will replace it when more stock arrives.

I hope this is a isolated event.

I see Stuff has a review on the HTC One.  I do wonder though that the reviewer has actually even held the phone.

http://www.stuff.co.nz/technology/gadgets/8663394/Review-HTC-One

I mean
The One is constructed from a solid aluminium unibody,
Really?

and

 A matte, grippy white stripe is painted around the flat outer edge, which provides better grip than bare aluminium and helps avoid drops in the first place.


It's actually plastic sandwiched between the screen and the aluminium back.

I have to agree with the camera comments though.

But the micro sim is a downside apparently, better tell Nokia and Apple that.

i actually went today to Noel Leeming and told them to cancel my order. I went to Warehouse Stationary and just bought the phone from there. They had one in store and I took it. Noel Leeming said they still dont have a date for their phones yet and didnt have any in stock.

Charged the phone up and been playing with it for the past couple of hours. It is indeed a great and stunning device. I did notice a little bit of gap at the top of the device. but thought i could live with this and decided to keep it. Maybe I could compare with others during the IRL and see if I should indeed get it changed or not. I still have all the packaging with me :)
