Ask MoDaCo: the HTC One


This is the HTC One, in stunning black. I have to confess that I really like the silver one, but now I have a black one in my hands... it's really growing on me.

A device such as this deserves an extensive, thorough and honest review and that's what I will deliver - but I know lots of you have questions about the device right now... so i'm here to answer any queries you have.

Fire away! :)

Hi Paul, how's the multitasking? I usually like to leave my Skype open in the background and with my One X it would usually shut it down after some time. It was such a deal breaker I sold the phone! Have they changed that "feature" in the One?

MUCH better with the 2GB RAM.

Not that i'm aware of...

Damn, thats a shame. One thing I really like about "Vanilla" is that lots of apps can use the locksreen controls :s

I suspect that could change with 4.2.2?

P

Yeah possibly. It's not a deal breaker though. Just trying to decide if I should wait for a Black or try and get a Silver now

The Led is in the speaker grille but nice and bright and clear. I'll try the radio and let you know! :-)

Hi - any news on the FM Radio "quality" yet? Cheers.
    • 0
Listening to it right now. Loud, bassy, but, well, it sounds like FM at the end of the day...? :)

I quite like the way there's a Soundhound button that can search for a song as it's playing on the radio.

BBC iPlayer is limited by the quality of the BBC Stream. YouTube looks great!

Hi Paul,

Sense always has Scenes and Skins menu under Personalization settings, which basically customize the look and feel of the UI. But in Sense 5.0, they remove those options. Do you use those options often before Sense 5? What do you think of the removal of these options?

Thanks.

I didn't to be fair!

I think it's a reasonable step in their 'lightening' of Sense.

Help! I have just bought the amazing HTC One yesterday and have a problem when listening to music through the (supplied) headphones. The music seems to stutter all the time and randomly skips to different tracks which makes listening to music through the default player impossible, It only seems to happen when I put the phone in my pocket or if you shake it slightly (is there a 'shake' feature to jump to the next track?). I think I may be able to use the Google Player app instead but just need to know if there is a setting I may be overlooking or if this sounds like a definite fault? Also, when I plug in my headphones, the phone sometimes switches to the Google Now voice command, thinking I'm saying something and just cuts out the music. Any help would be very much appreciated...

1. Is this some kind or error, or did you really plug a 16MB memory stick in?

2. Do you know when 4.2 might arrive?

Thanks :)

It actually is a dodgy stick. ;)

Paul - any idea if you can get rid of the "Power Saver" notification?

I've stopped the power app from running manually, but the option to uncheck "display notifications" is greyed out :(
    • 0
Not yet, i'll be making a mod to let you do that though.

Cool - thanks Paul. It only arrived this morning so I'm still playing :)


Not even looked into Root yet :P
