Yesterday HTC held simultaneous events both in London and New York and everyone had their fingers crossed for the unveiling of the HTC One and it must have worked because they did just that!
The HTC One is being branded as HTC’s flagship phone and sure as hell has a lot to offer! Though it does resemble both the iPhone 5 and the BlackBerry Z10 but hey, looks aren’t everything, it’s what’s inside that matters.. right?
In the HTC One’s case it does. This phone packs-a-punch with a 4.7 inch 1080p display with 468 ppi, 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU with 2GB of RAM, available in either 32GB or 64GB storage options, a brand new Ultrapixel rear camera with a 2 megapixel front facing camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and like with most other HTC’s you’ve also got Beats Audio, just to name a few.
The main selling point for me is the camera, the HTC One is host to a 28mm lense at F2.0 aperture (which my photography buff wife says is really good). Apparently this lets more light in which is perfect for lower light situations. The camera is also host to something I’ve never heard of before “Ultrapixel”. I’ve read around and the HTC One has a 4.3-megapixel sensor which on paper doesn’t sound too good. But the technology behind it is what makes it brilliant.

The UI is new also with BlinkFeed, a new type of launcher that resembles Windows Phone 8 a little. BlinkFeed is essentially like a snapshot of your social life through a few Windows-esque slates. When you unlock the HTC one you’re presented with boxes that display your social feeds, your RSS news feeds, Weather, and Time. If that’s not for you though it can be easily deactivated, or a quick swipe will display the standard HTC Sense launcher.
So what do you think of the HTC One? I love it! Leave a comment below!
