There are few other HTC One problems and bugs reported by various users, which are discussed below.

Some HTC One owners are compalinig that the phone takes too much time to get fully charged. Reason could be the big battery(2300 mAh) of the phone. Usually smartphones takes around 2-3hours to get charged, but HTC One might take around 4 hours to get fully charged. However, if it’s taking more than that, make sure there are not lot of apps running in the background while phone is charging. It is also recommended that you use the original charger that come with the device to charge it. Another workaround to charge it faster is to decrease the brightness level of the phone to 0% while charging.

Few users are complaining that the battery of the phone drains out very quickly. Although, HTC claims that battery of the HTC One lasts for up to 500 h (2G)/ Up to 480 h (3g) in stand-by mode and gives talk time of Upto 27h (2G)/ Up to 18h (3g). However, many users are compalingin that battery does not lasts even for a day.

Theie is not much you can do to increase the battery life of a phone besides turning off things like WiFi, Auto Sync, mobile data and decreasing brighness level whenever possible. But these are not the solutions user want, because smartphone is meant to be used for all this stuff.

Another problem reported by users is that their HTC One keep freezing whenever they try to open a heavy app such as 3D games. The device becomes unresponsive and user has to reboot it. I think this problem is caused by buggy apps, you should avoid installing apps which does not come from the trusted developers or have low ratings.
