HTC has always made some nice looking handsets. Their build quality is one of the best, if not the best in the market. Their newest flagship device is (apparently) even going to strengthen their image when it comes to a premium handset.
Camera:The HTC One comes with a new “UltraPixel” camera which has never been seen before. Using a custom-designed sensor with enlarged pixels, it is meant to absorb three times more light than a conventional sensor, allowing for better low-light photography. This new camera(UltraPixel) limits the photo to 4 MP only but anyone with a little knowledge of photography knows that MP’s aren’t everything. A cool feature of the camera is that it captures five frames before one presses the shutter followed by 15 more after the shutter is pressed allowing the user to choose from 20 different photos, not to mention a 3 second video clip with every picture.
Display: A 4.7 inch Full HD 1080p display with a 468ppi which is one of the highest. As a comparison the Iphone 5 has 326ppi so you can imagine the resolution on this device.
Audio: Boomsound. This is the new technology HTC One will be using which they claim to give “best audio experience of any mobile phone”
Blink Feed-HTC Sense 5: HTC has completely revamped the Sense UI. The concentration has shifted form widgets and now concentrating on Blink Feed which is a way of getting the information at a glance. The option of turning blink feed off and using the conventional widgets is still there.
Overall: This is looking to be a great handset if not the greatest. This is what HTC should have done a long while back.
