Why don't gifs work on my phone?

I have an HTC One, surely I should be able to play gifs?

Maybe its the browser you're using?

For some reason .gifs always act poorly on any smartphone I've had. They work, but you only get like a third or a fourth of the frames and it typically goes slow. Makes it harder to finish but I guess the longer it takes the better it feels.

yeah, something is up somewhere. Theres no reason that you cant view GIF files universally, from gallery to browser.

I'm using the stock browser. They don't load at all, just shows 1 picture.

I know my previous phone, htc sensation, you have to go into browser settings and have to enable gif. I also got a htc one, theres a setting you have to enable.

If you're talking about HTC/Sense/etc browser, then sure. But AOSP browser is probably the fastest as well as most stable browser available. I used to use Chrome for the bookmark sync but I just transferred them over to AOSP due to how fast/stable it was in comparison.

No. I'm talking about the standard blue icon android browser.
