The 2 points in the negative column are actually huge pluses for me and many others
no user replaceable battery and no SD card slot are pluses?

The lack of expandable storage is definitely a negative for me. I'm currently in the last couple months of a 3 year contract using the HTC Desire...yep, the original. I've got 32GB on the Desire, and I would like to see my next phone have more storage than my current one. I upgraded from 8GB to a 32GB micro sd card halfway through my contract.
I keep a lot of music and videos on my phone, and I like the idea that my phone will be future-proofed with a good amount of storage. Unfortunately, no Canadian carriers that I know of have the 64GB HTC one, and the lack of expandable storage is keeping me away from the 32GB version. I'm waiting a bit longer to see what else will be around this summer.

No memory card slot is a huge negative for me. That was the reason why I went with the Note 2 over the DNA.
It has no mico sd card slot but it does support USB OTG.
Some Android devices can act as a USB host, so that you can use USB devices attached to them.
Samsung's S and Note models plus the LG Optimus G Pro support USB OTG
This is a GREAT phone! speedy, effective, stylish... And there is a version in China or someplace that has a removable backplate that gives access to SD Cards and battery, but, thats way over in China. XD
This is an amazing phone on terms of build quality and stability, but I think the S4 definitely beats it in the other columns.
Call Bell. They offered it to me, but I have decided that my Optimus G is still fine (upgrade from another line).
The One is a killer phone. 32Gb is enough for me and the battery is large enough too. I upgrade before they die.
A user replaceable battery is ONLY a good thing is someone plans to actually purchase a spare battery and use it something I have never ever done and will never do but it lowers the overall build quality, physical strength of the device, and will just always pop off every time I drop it.
An SD card slot would also not be used by most people including myself (there is enough internal storage) and will just be a slot that either collects dust or has an ugly/flimsy slot cover.
So yes the HTC One is perfect without those 2 features.
Wow I completely missed this.
I actually own a One and it is by far the best phone I have ever used. Plus the thing just feels amazing. By far the highest build quality you will ever find in a phone, even compared to Apple (wife has a 5).
