Review: The HTC One

HTC is always about great design and premium materials but they are taking a bold step towards the high end smartphone category with their latest handset the HTC One. Of course, the HTC One replaces their HTC One X line but in a batter way.

The device has changed both on the exterior aesthetics and on the software side. It has a more industrial design and software, which is cleaner and faster than their previous handsets. The handset is powered by a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU that performs well.

HTC’s own Sense 5 UI, an improved version of Sense that runs along with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The handset offers two big software features, HTC’s BlinkFeed and HTC Zoe. The new HTC Zoe feature allows users to record three second video snippets for playback in a 30 second video trailer.

While taking the hardware of the device, the HTC One is made of glass and metal. The gorgeous industrial design is more appealing than the iPhone. The manufacturers put the speakers on the front for better audio and viewing experience.

The handset sports a 4.7-inch full 1080p HD display and new cameras that utilizes UltraPixel technology. The main drawback of the device is that its battery runs out pretty quick . The handset’s  2,300 mAh battery will make you charge  for at least once in a day to keep it going.

Verdict

The HTC One is the most beautiful smartphone by HTC which can serve as a great contender to the Samsung’s Galaxy SIV. But HTC still need to do better marketing and carrier availability in order to get the upper hand in the market.
