    No micro SD card, and non replaceable battery, means fail in my book. I use my phone all day long, and I am always out and about, and have on quite a few occasions had to change my battery around late afternoon "I always l keep two spare ones in my bag, or jacket pocket". My question is what do you do if you are out WORKING with no charger in sight and need to make that important phone call, or send or receive that important text or email and your phones battery is cooked. And don't let me get started on the Micro SD card expansion and how important it is to me and many others, sorry but cloud storage is still cloud storage, which means you need a data connection to access those important files. HTC will never learn, yes the HTC One is a sweet looking device, but at the end of the day, functionality is what the consumer is looking for, that is why Samsung is a leader in the Android handset market, they listen and supply their customers with what they need and ask for, the S4 will kill the HTC One or any other device in sales once again, the top two reasons that I mentioned is a big reason. I have owned a few HTC devices, but once they started with their impregnated "small" batteries, and no access for expansion Micro SD memory, I bid them farewell as have many others, and don't get me started on their slow updates.
    If the HTC one had a slot for a micro SD card and a removable battery and sold on Verizon, they would kill the market, but once again, their CEO fell asleep at the wheel, and in the end will be the downfall of this company.

    This is in response to my email to HTC, which was pretty much the same as my post above, with a few things added.

    Dear John,

    Thank you for contacting me at HTC support and for your interest in the HTC One! I am sorry to hear about the design issues you have with the new phone. I appreciate your suggestions and will forward them to our HTC Research and Development department on your behalf for possible consideration in the design of future models.
    All constructive suggestions are evaluated on their own merit and are used by our developers when deciding what new features to offer in upcoming models, to improve existing features and functions, to find out what things that our customers are looking for in their device, or find areas that could be improved with future models of HTC devices.
    Thank you for taking the time to provide us some feed back John. Thank you also for owning HTC handsets in the past. I hope you are having a pleasant Spring weekend!

    Interestingly, this doesn't appear to be a canned response. I really wonder how much they take customer input/feedback into consideration? At any rate, it's good that you aired your grievances with someone who could potentially get this some visibility within HTC. Only time will tell, I suppose.

    I was pretty surprised myself when I received a response in a twenty four hour period. Like I have said, I always owned HTC products, but once they thought they where apple and could care any less what their customers wanted, that's when my wallet made a switch, I really do not get how difficult it could be to have removable storage and removable battery, Samsung seems to not have any trouble with it, and their S3 sold over twenty million units, and I bet majority of the S3 owners where previous HTC owners, like I have said if they do just those two things, HTC will one day see my hard earned cash. That is if they last that long.

    Wow. Unreal.
    I would have got the One IF it was on VZW and IF it had a MicroSD.

    I think the problem is that, unlike in America, a phone with no SD slot would not sell in China.
    But in America, too many people bought into the hype that they didn't need one. Too many people settled.
    And Google sold some Nexus devices. And HTC saw this and said "hey, we can too".
    If people from the start would have said "I want memory expansion" and NOT bought phones without it, this trend of expansion-less phones would have been stopped cold.

    That is why Samsung is killing all other Android device manufacturers, they supply what the customer wants. When I send the email I did not sugar coat it, it read exactly as my post, plus I added a few things.
