HTC One has Rectangular, flat, and extremely thin, the HTC One is practically all screen. Its 4.7-inch LCD display uses the SoLux technology for improved picture quality and generates 468 pixels per inch. This helps the screen to boast the most impressive viewing experience of any phone it has ever created. Since the display is slightly smaller at the same resolution, the One’s screen has a denser pixel count than the Droid DNA
the display has plenty of impact with vibrant colors, wide viewing angles, and plenty of brightness. Details also look extremely crisp. Just how this device’s screen measures up against the best mobile displays from Samsung and Apple, however, remains to be seen.
HTC also makes a big deal about the One’s all-aluminum chassis, describing it as using a zero-gap unibody design. Indeed, available in hues of black and silver, the handset feels sturdy, has reassuring heft, and its smooth metallic skin exudes high-end craftsmanship. HTC also took pains to point out that while the thin white trim encircling the silver model I manhandled appears to be plastic, it is in fact meta
dual speakers act in unison to deliver a more lively audio experience whether while watching movies or listening to music. Paired with an onboard amplifier and Beats technology, HTC has given the system the rather unfortunate name BoomSound. It reminds me of the kind of cheesy trademark Philips used to plaster all over its old boom boxes.
A flagship smartphone wouldn’t be worth its weight in salt if it wasn’t backed up by a bevy of screaming components. You’ll be glad to know that the HTC One doesn’t disappoint. Beating inside the heart of this regal machine is a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, fresh off of Qualcomm’s factory floor. It’s the first device I know of to officially feature the new silicon. Because of that I’m sure a lot of smartphone addicts out there will be itching to get their hands all over this gadget.
In the limited time I’ve spent with the HTC One, I can definitely say it’s fast, thin, and flaunts a very sexy design. Of course these words describe a lot of new smartphones. If the phone’s screen and camera live up to the hype, however, then HTC may have a big winner on its hands. I have to say I am concerned about the BlinkFeed feature, which may be exciting for Android newbies but doesn’t seem extremely useful for smartphone old hands.
