HTC One for AT&T: the best Android phone yet?
7 January 2014
Summary: HTC's flagship smartphone for 2013, the One, really impressed us when we reviewed the international version last month . Its stellar design, speedy performance, and absolutely incredible display overshadowed some of the complaints we had with its camera and battery performance. Since then, we've been eagerly waiting to get our hands on the proper US version of the phone with support for LTE networks here in the States.
Pros: Beautiful design, Speed to spare, Solid network performance
Cons: Average battery life, Unimpressive camera performance, Sense 5 still isn’t perfect
Summary: The Android market has changed radically in the past couple of years. Where we once had a spec war, with manufacturers racing to release ever-more powerful smartphones as quickly as possible, now it’s turning into a marketing battle — and Samsung is winning by a mile. HTC, by comparison, isn’t doing so well. The company has learned some important lessons about not flooding the market with iterative designs, and the culmination of that is the aptly-named HTC One .
Google Nexus 5 vs. Moto X vs. HTC One (Google Play Edition)
3 January 2014
Excerpt: Of the small number of phones that have been update to Android 4.4 Kitkat, three standout: the Google Nexus 5, Moto X, and HTC One Google Play Edition. Which of these smartphones is the best to own?
Conclusion: The heat may be on for HTC but the One certainly helps ease off the pressure. Incredible hardware in a light, stylish package with one of the best user experiences around lands the HTC One in high regard. HTC haven't been afraid to try some new things with the One; the camera technology is compelling, the additional features are distinctive and Sense 5 is incredible.
Pros: Amazing user interface, Extensive camera options, Great screen, Fantastic build
Cons: Styling might not be for everyone, Can't remove BlinkFeed, 4G impacts on battery
Conclusion: There's more than one way to say which one of the two beastly smartphones we reviewed today is better, but that won't necessarily mean it's the phone you'll want. Adding the wins and ties together in our test looks like the objective, fact-based approach. OK, we take this for a fact. And here's another one. The LG G2 is the newer device and that carries a lot of weight in an industry evolving as rapidly as this. But then again, it's more expensive too.
Summary: The HTC One blends an unmatched premium design for Android phones with impressive performance, a beautiful 1080p display and rich, front-mounted speakers. HTC Sense 5.0, with its Blinkfeed feature, adds flavor to the stock Android OS. And while Samsung's TouchWiz software offers more features, Sense has a cleaner look and feel and suffers from less lag.
Pros: Elegant metal design, Rich 1080p display, High-quality dual front-speakers, Fast camera, Impressive performance
Cons: Gimmicky Zoe feature, Below-average battery life
Excerpt: Android has an odd way of cannibalizing itself when it comes to "Best smartphone" arguments. Just as quickly as one phone is crowned, another challenger appears a short time later. Now, X is the challenger. Moto X, that is.
