It would be exciting if the unlocked version was actually on sale. $200 with contract is pretty standard these days.

But you can buy a 64GB Mico SD card for like $40 and that’s retail for a Kingston part. So even $100 extra for 32GB is a rip off. You know the cost difference for them is like maybe $10 and there is no Micro SD slot. What a scam.

HTC are you f_cking morons????

First lets make our flagship phone without a removable battery or expandable storage.
Second let make our 64GB variant exclusive to one carrier.
Third lets let that one carrier completely @ss rape people on the price of the 64GB variant.

And you have the nerve to say your trying to be competitive? Someone needs to be fired immediately.

Im on Sprint and was thinking about picking The One up, until I heard no 64GB verison.

Not defending HTC or at&t for their pricing on this but the cost to manufacture a base Porsche 911 and the top of the line turbo model is not $75,000 but people pay the premium for a premium product. I agree $100 is steep but its about having the top of the line status sometimes, people will pay it.

While this may be true we are talking about storage here. We're not talking about a Base model phone with a dual core processor with the option to pay extra and unlock extra power with like a quad core or something. It's 2013. Storage is cheap, Data is plentiful, Movies are higher resolution and games more graphically demanding. With these inprovements file sizes are RAPIDLY increasing. ANd with the way carriers rip people off on data we don't all want to use cloud storage. One because it's a PITA streaming content to a device I could have just as easily stored locally; and two is because I don't want to blow my entire months worth of data transferring a couple of files.

Locking down your device by not offering a removable battery (which means no larger third party options) and charging insane premiums for local storage on a device when we're already getting ripped off with data charges is a step in the completely wrong direction. It is the reason HTC continues to drown in a sea of beautiful android devices ruined by a few extremely stupid business decisions.

I refuse to buy an Android phone w/o removable battery and SD card slot. It's an instant deal breaker no matter how nice the device is. Why? Because I know another manufacturer will meet the needs HTC fails to recognize.
