Lol - unfortunate edit. It's actually the front facing camera that's 2.1 MP

I agree. Those fighting SIM cards are a pain!

For info, there is no LTE in the dual SIM version of the HTC one.

I agree, unfortunately that's what's stopping me.

Perfect, been waiting for a proper Dual Sim phone for ages. This beats all the mid range dual sim by miles.

Touché!

I was after one of these for ages (802W chinese version) but bought a cheap THL W8 instead which is working spot on. Not exactly HTC standard but considering new one might be out next year nearly £500 for this is abit expensive.

LOLoftD if you will.


Hopefully this model will kickstart the dual sim revolution in the UK.
I remember those rubbish batteries they sold about 10 years ago where you had to turn the phone off then back on again to switch SIMs. almost pointless.
These allow you to keep both lines active all the time. So you can have one business and one personal, or one personal and one for illicit affairs, the possibilities are endless. For me, I want a throwaway PAYG so I can share it when absolutely required to (e.g. when contacting a company) without feeling my privacy has been violated, but then not miss that call because it might be important.
I'm glad that they're acknowledging that India and China aren't the only places in the world where dual sim is in demand, and hopefully other manufacturers will follow suit.

iv just bought the nexus 5, i would have rather bought this due to it being a dual sim, bargin

Very ever marketing idea from HTC. The only reason I didn't buy was no additional storage.At least theve finally listened.Wont be buying still due to the camera but in all a big step in the right direction.

Very handy if you're roaming abroad often, saves carrying two phones (although I have EE roaming plan now which means I don't have to).

Also handy if you have friends and family on another network, where either of you have lots of (or unlimited) on net minutes.

Or if you have a spare SIM, lots of offers on here where people have taken out a contract as its cheapest way to get the phone. With a dual SIM phone you can rinse the allowances on that SIM easily.

Battery is shait now, wonder how long it will hold with dual sim.

Be careful with the battery on these dual sim phones. They have 2 lots of 2g and 3g antennas active, doubling the power drain

No lte

Its cold from me.

Yesterdays tech for an iphonish price, no LTE and a pathetic camera. HTC need to take their ultrapixel bollo**s and shove it up where the sun doesn't shine.

That said, a decent effort to bring a dual sim capabilities in a flagship.

An iPhone 5c 32GB is £549, and that is definitely yesterdays tech with a small screen. The camera is very good in low light situations, not so great for landscapes. This phone supports dual sim and has microSD, I think it is a great deal.

You clearly dont understand what an ultrapixel is, pixels are much bigger so more light can be captured when taking a picture and will benefit even more when you take them daylights. Obviously it's not meant to be for everyone (more to the ones who use the camera more often)

you know its funny, everyone just wants to have the best thing or they disregard it but once they have the product they'll never use it again. just like this dude did. another example would be: a really beefy phone comes with blueetooth 2.0 while an iphone (that, lets be honest, not really performance underdog) comes with bluetooth 3.0. What would people pick? The iphone, because it's got 3.0.

How often do they use bluetooth in a year? x1? And did they even notice the bluetooth speed, let alone remember what bluetooth verison they have? no.

The camera's excellent.

blue tooth is yesterday's technology.far too slow

You could get dual sim offering like this for 60 quid

doesn't appear to have 3g on both sims, just the one with 2g on the other.. deal breaker for me

Will be interesting to see if others follow suit now with the expandable memory. It's the one thing that a lot of people complain about but that manufacturers seem not to care about. I think it'll only take a few of them for all to follow that lead… Let's hope anyway. Also a great idea with the dual SIM, especially when travelling abroad and wanting to get cheaper calls with a local SIM.

link please!

So close, shame there is no 4g. I own a HTC One and have never had a better camera on a phone, it's not all about megapixels. I get better indoor and low light pictures on it than my TZ20.

Google returns are straight forward, no questions asked.

You'll get virtually what you paid for it if you wanted to sell and buy this instead.

Do you honestly believe cramming ever more pixels onto a tiny sensor, served by a lens the size of your pinky, yields any benefit? That's before one even considers the crappy flash and how few of the pictures one will ever crop. Or the space the massive pictures will take on your relatively small storage.

I understand u-l-t-r-a-pixel a bit. But I clearly understand HTC's desperate need for a gimmicky name to pull in suckers once they realised the mistake of coupling a capable phone with a terrible shooter.

GSMArena tested it and the all the test results are equivocal. The camera is BAD for a flagship, period.

If HTC folks short-charge their flagship by putting an inferior shooter that's their problem. I am not going to buy it.
