Numerous sources also point at the same problem on the surface of the HTC One unibody – wide gap between its plastic and metal surface. As the gap between looks unusual and inconsistent among devices, it
is widely regraded as a production flaw. These photos are fiercely being debated in Taiwan because some users do condemn about the gap, and even the earphone and MircoUSB slot looks rough. We won’t say it’s a crack but obviously it is not something HTC promised – unibody
Early in 19.3.2013 the XDA-Developer found this assembling problem and the debate went on non-stop. XDA-Developer found that the unibody of HTC One is only the rear and the side case but the front panel is made by plastic. The gap between metal and plastic is filled by glue but if something goes wrong in the gluing process, it will make the gap visible and somehow unacceptable. Users with this problem are encouraged to take the HTC One for refund or exchange for a new one because the ads of HTC said their ONE is made out of a unibody design, which is now below reasonable expectation.
Rather than saying the gap between plastic and metal, we would like to point out that the finishing at the earphone, charging slot looks rough. These problems even happen on the sales prototype of HTC One which were sent to various places for reviews and sales purpose.
Will this lead to a loss of confidence in HTC’s quality assurance and production quality? Will you buy HTC One given you have seen the photos above, let us know what you think!
