HTC One Review: In Depth
5 December 2013
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
Excerpt: Though it does dabble in Windows phones HTC is best known for its Android handsets and though it’s been a while since it’s had a real hit on its hands with the One it manages that feat with aplomb. The design of the metallic One is sublime. It fits neatly in the hand without being too slippery and at 143g with a 4.7-inch 1080p 468ppi display it’s a pleasure to use.
Pros: Great build quality camera works well fast and responsive.
Cons: BlinkFeed can’t be uninstalled no expandable memory.
Pure Android: Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One 'Google Play editions' review
25 May 2013
Summary: The Android device story has followed a predictable pattern for the past few years: Samsung, HTC, LG, and Sony release top-tier hardware to carriers the world over, with their own proprietary software layered over Android. Google, meanwhile, partners with one of those companies to release a Nexus phone running “pure” Android software, usually without carrier support and usually on hardware that doesn’t feel quite up to snuff.
Pros: Stock Android, Beautiful design, Improved battery life
Cons: Poor camera software, IR blaster not functional yet, No menu button
Conclusion: The HTC One is the company's best phone yet. You have my blessing: go ahead and buy one. It's not just fast, the display is superb and the design is elegant. Cutting edge CPUs and graphics are Android's bread and butter, much like PCs and it takes more to stand out: the HTC One has what it takes in terms of quality materials, build, design and solid software that doesn't overwhelm. Is it the perfect smartphone?
Pros: Stunning design, quality aluminum alloy casing, superb full HD display, fast, pleasing software customizations.
Cons: No removable storage, battery isn't user replaceable. Has only 2 of the usual 3 capacitive buttons.
Conclusion: Whether the Sprint version of the HTC One is the best choice for you will depend, as always, on how well Sprint suits you as a carrier. The nation’s third-largest wireless provider definitely has its ups and downs in terms of rate plans and coverage, respectively; only you can answer whether Big Yellow is the right fit for you where you live and work.
Pros: Outstanding build quality, Gorgeous display, Excellent audio experience, Camera’s low-light performance is top-tier, Sense 5 is responsive and adds value
Cons: -style social media aggregator that lives on the One’s far-left homescreen, is somewhat underwhelming. That’s especially true considering how much attention HTC -and then the tech media- lavished upon it int he weeks following its reveal. BlinkFeed works well enough once you plug in your Facebook and Twitter handles and tell it your favorite news outlets, but it sacrifices usability for visual flair. It’s not nearly as efficient to browse, say, a Twitter feed when you...
Summary: The HTC One is currently the best smartphone on the market. It’s not perfect, and nor is the Android app ecosystem, but the combination of stunning design, prodigiously fast hardware, superbly-implemented software and keen focus on what’s important to the average customer makes it the best choice for most consumers.
Pros: - Gorgeous 4.7-inch screen is unmatched in clarity, viewing angles and density
Cons: - The virtual menu button still crops up in too many apps, disrupting an otherwise-flawless software experience
Conclusion: The HTC One deserves the highest score we’ve ever given a device. It’s just that good. It’s incredibly well built, well thought-out (down to ergonomics, fit and finish, and even many little software features that are unexpected and delightful), and satisfying to use no matter what you’re doing and how hard you’re pushing it. We were rough on the camera, but the truth is that it’s good…just not great (once again HTC has over-promised and under-delivered).
Pros: + Build quality is amazing, + Design is unique, phone is well-weighted, + BoomSound changes the way you use the phone, + Display is unbelievably good, + Snappy performance no matter what, + Wide-angle front-facing camera is helpful with group shots, + Silver version if very fingerprint resistant; always looks new, + Sense 5 is minimal, useful, and beautiful, + Camera low-light performance is great, You can buy the HTC One unlocked from a European retailer such as , f...
Cons: - Camera only takes 4MP shots, has inadequate color saturation and sharpness, - Off-center Home button can be annoying, - Phone is quite tall, difficult to use with one hand, - BlinkFeed, HTC TV needs more options to be useful, You can buy the HTC One unlocked from a European retailer such as , for around $650. In the near future, the One should be available in LTE models across all four US carriers.
