I’m about to get my 5th HTC One Phone due to poor Quality Assurance

Cracked my phone’s screen today while at a job site.  That’s $150 for the insurance deductible and completely ruins the day for me.  It fell from 4 ft up to a tiled floor.  I’ve never broken a screen that had gorilla glass before.  What I can’t understand is why it broke in the first place.

The screen is shattered about a full inch from the upper left corner .  There is a hard case on it and the case is elevated above the screen.  Not only that but the case has no discernible marks on it.

This phone has had poor reception ever since I got my first one when it was released.  It’s been a very frustrating time.   My previous HTC One phones had the digitizers  start to fail (2 of them), and a battery that wouldn’t charge.

I should have known something was wrong with HTC when no one would take my order nor would they give me my free case during the promo.  Yes, you heard that right.  HTC site wasn’t working for me and the phone lines were supposedly down.  This was over several days.

Anyone want to take some guesses on which company has the worst QA?  Choices are HTC, Sony or Fitbit.   I’m on my 4th Sony camera which I will need to return once again due to water issues.  I’m also on my 3rd fitbit flex since september.

HTC One is a Beautiful but Flawed Phone


I am fed up defending my phone.  The latest issue with it has to do with the wifi.  I have 2 networks in my house due to two internet connections. I am also very familiar with wifi networks.

The only thing a google search showed me was people blaming the routers.  This is definitely not the case in my instance.

  1. This is my 4th HTC One and first time with this issue.
  2. I have issues with both my wpa and my open access points
  3. This issue just started this week and there were NO UPDATES
  4. My wife’s phone doesn’t have this issue.

I love my camera.  Absolutely LOVE IT but I don’t know how much  more I can keep using that as excuse to stick with the phone.  My other issues are poor reception in relation to my wife’s Samsung Galaxy S3 and poor switching between 3G and 4G areas.

The battery is fine now since I am on my 4th phone but I think in a year I would dread not having a replaceable battery.  You could really tell how quickly the battery starts to wear out.

Lastly, if you are wondering how I could be on my 4th HTC One it is very simple.  2 had screen issues where certain parts of the screen stopped working and another one had a battery that wouldn’t charge above 47%.
