Best HTC One Reviews

In case you missed them. Man oh man, their conclusions are much different to The Verge. The reviews actually have detail - gleaned from using the phone for more than two fricken' days, with actual methodical testing of the hardware and software (how much I hate reading in The Verge's phone reviews that "the battery life was tested with the screen at 100% brightness". Um, not all screens are equally bright!!!)

I'm beginning to think, after disappointment with many of their reviews, The Verge's great strength - their extraordinary journalism - is also their weakness: they're looking for stories, drama and don't have the primary tech enthusiast's level of detail and systematic thinking.
