The latest addition in the One series line up of the HTC android smartphones is very elegant in design and powerful in performance. HTC has kept the name of this device limited to One i.e. HTC One. All of its features are now officially known and here is a complete review of the device.
Every HTC smartphone is uniquely design and the One series smartphone’s designs are very eye catching. I personally use HTC One V and apart from its features I liked the design more. HTC One also has unique design, very thin in size and display looks fixed firmly with the body that is no space between the display and its outer cover. The design of the front and back part of the device is very unique and you will love to hold the device. It has sharp edges identical to the iPhone 5 ones and the edges shine as well.
As expected it has quad core processor with 1.7GHz clock speed, that sounds awesome and works awesome as well. The Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is really fast to keep up with the operating system and it has been added with Adreno 320 GPU as well. The one thing which I like is that it has been provided with 2GB of RAM instead of common 1GB RAM that means now the processor will be working at its full capacity. The internal storage has been kept to 32GB but there is no expandable slot. You may also go for the 64GB version.
Latest version of Android Jelly Bean is provided with the device and it is customized by the HTC. The home screen is very unique and you can scroll down to have access to your stuff or apps. HTC has even place a unique design clock at the top of the display. All the updates from apps are shown right at home screen. If you want you can put widgets as well. The benchmarks are really fast as expected and the OS is going to provide the perfect coordination to the hardware of the device. It has all the new Jelly Bean apps like Camera, Keyboard, etc. The OS is also added with the all new HTC Sense UI (version 5).
It has 4.7 inch Super LCD3 display that can show up to 16 million colors and provides full HD resolution of 1080×1920 pixels. The pixel density is really large i.e. 469 ppi that shows how beautiful the stuff going to look on the display.
It has slot for micro SIM card and capable of operating with 4G LTE, 3G HSDPA and off course the 2G one. The data speed with LTE is really fast, according to the officials it can provide up to 100 mbps download speed with LTE.
It is packed with all the required data connectivity features like NFC, Bluetooth (4.0), Wi-Fi, Infrared Port and also the microUSB port. The Wi-Fi has extra features as well like Wi-Fi Direct, Hotspot and DLNA. It also has a TV out port.
This is where you will find new thing. HTC has not increased the MP number but increased the quality. It has got 4MP camera at rear but its quality is really awesome. The sensor size is about 1/3” and it is capable of recording videos and images simultaneously and that too of HD quality. It has face and smile detection features as well and can record full HD videos at 30 fps ratings.
At the front it is 2.1MP camera that is capable of recording full HD videos and it can take the HDR picture as well. So the camera section is really awesome.
The device is thin but not light weight as expected. It weighs about 143 gram and measures as 137.4 mm long, 68.2 mm wide and just 9.3 mm thin. Device looks like you are holding only the display as the fixing work of display with body is done perfectly.
Identical to all other HTC One series devices it also has 25GB of free Dropbox storage. You can also install the Google Drive to get the free 5GB storage. It has accelerometer, proximity, gyro and compass sensors. The browser is same, the HTML 5 one. Other features are all same which you can expect in a high end android smartphone.
HTC has kept the powerful battery of 2300 mAh ratings inside so that the device is alive for at least one day but if we use it for only browsing then it is able to make only 7 hours (due to large full HD display).
The device is available in Black, Red and Silver color. You can find it at near shop in your local area. If you want to buy HTC One at cheap price then you should look for the contract one.
If you were looking for a perfect competitive device (of iPhone 5 and Galaxy devices) from HTC then this one is the best one.
