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

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 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.
