Would you want the HTC One with Windows Phone 8.1?

Our friends over at Android Central have a brand new phone to play with. It’s the 2014 edition of the HTC One (M8). We just checked out their review and we’ll admit we’re a little jealous. We love the playful colors of the Lumia handsets, but we wouldn’t mind seeing more Windows Phones with metal finishes. Which is why we think we’d love a device like the HTC One with Windows Phone 8.1. What about you?

The HTC One packs a 1080p screen into a 5-inch Super LCD3 display. This display is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3. The phone itself is gorgeous looking. Curved metal on the back has us drooling to touch and play with it. You’ll find a Snapdragon 801 system-on-a-chip powering the HTC One. This is a 2.3GHz quad-core processor to help you power through any task. Look forward to 2GB of RAM and either 16GB or 32GB of onboard storage. Thankfully, there’s a microSD card slot that can augment and increase your storage up to an additional 128GB.

Long story short: It’s a beautiful phone with great internals. It just runs Android, which might be an OK thing for some of you, but we really want to see Windows Phone 8.1 on there. So we’re going to take a poll and see if we’re the only ones in this boat. But first, let’s talk business.

You did click through and read the HTC One review on Android Central, right? If not you should. It’s a new review format you’ll be seeing soon on Windows Phone Central. Maybe really soon if Nokia does announce the Lumia 930 and Lumia 630 next week at Build. Or maybe Samsung’s ATIV SE will be first.

Not only are you taking a poll, but we want your feedback on the format and layout of the review. Because it’s something we’ll be doing very soon here. We’d love to hear what you think about it and we’re of course open to suggestions. What’s really cool is that you now link to specific parts of a review.

Up above I linked to the overall review, but I can also link specifically to the camera section of the HTC One review. Which is pretty great. Imagine we review Nokia’s Lumia 930 and comment on how amazeballs the PureView camera is. You can easily share that specific section with your friends and social networks. Anyways. Check it out and let us know.
