AT&T gets the exclusive 64GB HTC One in US

While the HTC One is currently on sale in some parts of the world, the flagship Android phone from the Taiwan-based company is not scheduled to go on sale in the US until sometime in April. While several wireless carriers in the country will sell the smartphone, only one of them will have a special variant available in its stores.

That company is AT&T, and in a new video uploaded to YouTube it revealed that it will have the exclusive on the 64GB version of the HTC One. It will also sell the standard 32GB version, as well as all of the other wireless carriers that will have the phone available in the US.

HTC is yet to reveal a specific launch date for the HTC One in the US, a well as a price point for either of the 32 or 64GB versions. The video does goes into quite a bit of detail in terms of the features that will be a part of the HTC One. You can also check out a recent hands-on impressions article right here at Neowin, along with an article that compares the camera on the HTC One with the camera on the Nokia Lumia 920.

I would love to have the One, but the main thing is the Non-removable battery. I currently have the Sony Xperia Z, and this will be my last phone without a removable battery if I can help it. I get barely through the day with one charge, most days not at all. I can only assume the One will not be significantly better.
I don't like the design and build of Samsung phones at all, but there larger and removable batteries are definitely a reason to buy for me.

Compared to the S4, would this phone be a better choice? People have been telling me that the design of the HTC is amazing and is comparable to the IPHONE's hard shell design, but that the camera is nothing special, whereas the S4 has a sweet camera but isnt anything special for durability.

It's the best Android phone out there, unless you want the removable storage of the s4.

Depends what u want. With 64G storage u may not need hte SD card slot. The battery is smaller on the HTC but i think HTC screens might be nicer. I mostly go for custom rom support, so i check em out 6 months after release

The HTC One has the best low light camera on an Android phone. The low number of megapixels is irrelevant; its camera is nice.

Personally, I'd wait and see the polish of the phone in person. Friends and I have been burned by HTC too many times, including their terrible GPS chips (all have been broken or off by at least a hundred feet). Due to that, I will never buy an HTC phone.

However, I have also had bad luck with the cheap materials that Samsung tends to use in their phones while charging a premium at the same time ($250 for pre-order on AT&T), but at least their internals work. Still, the SG4 is too big to use comfortably in my hands (4.99") like its SG3 sibling (4.8"), while the HTC One is a modestly smaller 4.7".

I strongly prefer AMOLED screens (e.g., Lumia 920, and SG lineup) over SuperLCD, but I have not seen the HTC One's screen in person.

Never understood why companies do exclusives like this - just hurts their sales and hurts consumers in the long run! There is nothing to gain.

Agreed.
ODMs need to get their **** together and only offer universal models to carriers with no exclusives.

Most mobile chipsets are capable of supporting the myriad of technologies, but carriers insist they be hamstrung to their networks.
This has to change.
