We’ve been using the international HTC One for about a month now, and during that time it’s really proved itself to be one of the most complete devices ever built. Not only is it the best designed device out on the market today, it’s arguably the top Android phone money can buy. Starting next week, consumers here in the U.S. will know just how great the device is once it launches on AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. We already have the AT&T model, which will retail for $199 with two-year contract, here in the office, so we wanted to share some quick thoughts.

We’ve waited anxiously to take the One for a spin on an LTE network here in the U.S., and now we finally have the chance. Of course, concerns of degraded battery life as a result of the beefier network scratches at the back of our mind, so we’ll have to keep an eye on performance. Many of the features of the international model are still the same, but it’s exciting that the device is finally (nearly) available to the U.S. market.

We’ll have an updated review of the AT&T One shortly, where we’ll go over the differences and likely tread over some familiar ground. But the main thing is that one of the most terrific Android devices ever built is here. Check out the unboxing, and stay tuned for more HTC One coverage.
