You can now pre-order the HTC One flagship smartphone from majority of online retailers, and so far to date this handset seems to be a winner with consumers. We will be giving the ultimate HTC One visual review roundup via videos that have been uploaded to YouTube, but let us talk a little about the phone first.
The HTC One brings many new features to the table such as HTC’s BlinkView homescreen feature as well as a revamped camera. The size of this handset is very nice indeed with a screen size of 4.7-inches, the screen itself offers 1080p with 468ppi and if you take into account the Samsung Galaxy S3 has 306 that is a big differential margin. Yes we know many of you will say “You should compare it with the Samsung Galaxy S4 and then you will see a difference?” Personally we cannot do that because the S4 does not exist yet.
HTC have also added a cool feature called ‘Blinkfeed’ that allows the user to combine social networks and news all into one place, this in a nutshell means the whole homescreen on the phone will be replaced with a new concept to provide live streams, some say it looks similar to Windows Phone, we will let you comment on that one.
The HTC One key specs include a 4.7-inch 1080p Full HD, Jelly Bean OS, 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, HTC UltraPixel sensor, HTC ImageChip 2, we love the fact it comes with HTC Sense 5 (We will explain more about this in another review round-up). There are so many features to list so here is a few more as not to spoil the videos below, the HTC one also comes with 64GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and a 2300 mAh battery.
For sound the HTC One features HTC BoomSound dual stereo speakers, on the camera front the HTC One only has a 4-megapixel sensor but we all know it is not about the pixel size, this one will take awesome pictures and HTC promises that the handset will capture 300% more light thanks to its optical image stabilization, f/2.0 lens and ImageChip 2 for HDR. It does have a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera as well and all photos can be shared via the new Zoe service, there is also 1080p video recording with 88-degree wide-angle lens
