The Taiwan-based company HTC has a track record of creating excellent Android phones that can facilitate the daily conduct of your business, primarily on the business communication aspect. These phones are excellent in performing the basic telephony functions and, more importantly, the advanced ones, such as integrating with VoIP technology (such as RingCentral business VoIP) and other features offered by your phone service provider.
While seeming to fall behind the Samsung Galaxy S series and the Sony Xperia series, HTC smartphones are actual monsters of functionality and p
roductivity. Consumers and experts are giving props in its excellent hardware, and while some people may have issue with the company’s predilection towards flooding the market with recurring design, its smartphones are still one of the best Android machine there is. This year, the HTC did it again. And it has adopted the Samsung Galaxy’s strategy back then for the Galaxy SIII—focus all its efforts on promoting one device which will span across a number of carriers. The HTC One, the new flagship smartphone of HTC, will probably have a shot at repeating the success of the SIII.
In terms of design, the HTC One is one of those smartphones that elicits a sense of awe the first it is seen and encountered. Made from a solid block of aluminum, the One is light at 5.04 ounces and thin at 0.36 inches, but it does not feel fragile or anything; it actually feels solid.
The HTC One also sports a Super LCD 3 screen covered with Gorilla Glass 2. The screen display is nothing less than superb, with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. At 4.7” screen diagonal, the HTC One has one of a heck of pixel density—an astounding 468 pixels per inch. Pixels seem to be invisible to the eye with the HTC One.
But this is only starting to get amazing. The HTC One has a mine of treasure under the hood, featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU and a 1.7GHz quad-core chip, on top 2GB of RAM. Other hardware features that can be found in the HTC One include up to 64GB onboard storage, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, and 4G LTE support, among others.
The HTC One also went the other direction of most smartphones by installing a mere 4MP camera. The rationale? HTC desires to re-imagine the smartphone imaging system by utilizing UltraPixels, which uses bigger pixels in order to let in more light. This entails a faster shooting time, a faster application of pixels, and faster sharing of images on the Web.
HTC One also runs with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, along with the HTC Sense 5.0, which sports a number of new features such s the BlinkFeed. This feature has the ability to aggregate stories that originates from news sources and social media into tiles that are more appealing to the eye. Sense 5.0 also features a more customizable lock screen and a new layout in the app drawer. Its BoomSound makes the HTC One among the best-sounding smartphone ever, so that even if you turn up the volume while you are on speakers, the sound remains excellent.
If you are considering buying HTC One for personal and business use, then by all means do so. Its set of hardware is one of the best so far, and it is one of the best Android smartphone that you can buy this year.
