Engadget Review

The HTC One Google Play edition is the same phenomenal phone we've come to love made even better with stock Android, but held back slightly by the lack of AWS for HSPA+ and Google Wallet.

Product Review

Early impressions are that the phone feels great in the hand, very thin and very well made. The UI customizations, meanwhile, are another story entirely. Very Windows Phone-like, we're not sure traditional Android fans are going to love it.

To say that the HTC One takes some bold risks is putting it lightly, but the hardware I’ve seen is impressive and without a doubt the best out of HTC, or any Android handset maker for that matter, to date.

HTC Sense 5 is a step in the right direction, making the departure started in Sense 4. With bloat remove, it feel slick and fast, but is still distinctly HTC, with Blink Feed bringing a new face to HTC's flagship phone.
Product Review
TechRadar
We're not sold on the likes of BlinkFeed, as it seems a bit too 'beta' for something launched on a flagship phone ... That said, this is a phone that wows the second it hits the hand, has a great screen, strong internal storage of up to 64GB ... and a superfast processor.

In the brief time I spent flipping through the phone though, there are huge improvements in the latest version of Sense that could very well win over power users who have historically complained that Sense was too cumbersome.
Product Review
Gizmodo
The new Sense is also fluid, with the app drawer accessed from either a software button in the center of the screen, or a swipe to the right ... The image also not grainy at all, which was pretty impressive given the lighting circumstances.
Product Review
SlashGear
Overall, though, this is undoubtedly the best version of Sense we’ve seen on an HTC device, and in a way it takes us some way back to the original premise of the software.
Product Review
Android Central
This is finally a phone from HTC worth waiting for, a perfect blend of exciting software innovation and striking hardware design.
Product Review
PC Mag
We got to spend some time with the new HTC One, and it's very impressive. The phone is a block of tough, silvery aluminum with two inlaid plastic lines on the back; apparently, it takes more than three hours to mill and tool the metal for each phone.
Product Review
Android Community
We’re mighty excited about the HTC One overall. The phone looks great, feels great, runs fast, and has just about every feature we could demand of it, bar wireless charging (which still, we have to say, feels like a gimmick). Sense 5 finally feels like a return to original form.
