How has HTCs latest flagship fared after two months in the hands of an AC editor?
It’s been just over two months since I first got my hands on the HTC One — first, a pre-production demo unit, then a final European retail model. For most of that time, HTC’s impressive 2013 flagship has been my daily driver — the phone I use every day, and take with me just about everywhere I go.
