As you can see the high end HTC does have more features but since the HTC One has a embedded rechargeable battery the battery can't be replaced by the enduser so if anything goes wrong with the battery you will need to take the device into a Sprint store if you have the protection plan and if not you will need to send the phone to HTC, my spouse was without his HTC One for about 2 weeks because of this issue phone had to go back to HTC.  Now with the HTC Desire 510 the back come off easly so if you ever need to replace the battery it's just a trip to retail store.
