"Senseless" HTC One will soon be upon us

We reported last week that HTC was considering releasing a version of its “One” flagship smartphone without the Sense UI. The HTC One has won considerable praise for its stylish looks and relatively lightweight aluminum body, but the ever-present Sense UI has always been a sore point with HTC phones.
 
Well fear no more. Starting June 26, the HTC One with the full "Nexus user experience" will be available to purchase from the Google Play Store. The 32GB device (AT&T/T-Mobile compliant) will retail for $599 and comes equipped with Android 4.2.2.

 
The Samsung Galaxy S IV with the “Nexus user experience” will join the HTC One on the same day on the Google Play Store, however, that plastic-bodied smartphone will be priced at $649.

The problem isn't whether people like Sense or not. It is one of the more useful Android skins out there for sure. The problem is HTC is terrible at updating their phones. And I'm not talking just about Android updates. There were at least two security vulnerabilities discovered for my Desire S that HTC promised would remedy within a week. Months have passed and I saw no update at all (I don't have a carrier branded piece so it wasn't the carrier holding back the update). Unless the fixes were included in the ICS upgrade, I'm still left with an unpatched phone that cost me an arm and a leg two years ago.
So you see, even if Sense made Android twice as good, I still wouldn't touch it again.
