T-Mobile HTC One Hands-On!

by Todd Haselton | March 26, 2013

We checked out the T-Mobile HTC One today during the carrier’s new “Uncarrier” press event in New York City. The device is exactly what you expect from AT&T but, of course, supports T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network. It doesn’t have much branding but does have a few of T-Mobile’s standard bloatware installed. More importantly, however, we wanted to see the 4G LTE data speeds.

Using the HTC One on T-Mobile’s NYC 4G LTE network, which is still empty, we pulled down data at 27Mbps and uploaded it at 11.52MBps. Not too shabby at all, but remember that T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network is only launching in seven markets at first. Thankfully, T-Mobile will allow you to fall back to its HSPA+ 42Mbps network where LTE is not available.

The HTC One will be available for $99 with T-Mobile’s new plans when it launches.
