HTC One – Everything You Need To Know

by Jon Rettinger | February 19, 2013

You can worry all you want about specs, the number of megapixels and the density of a screen, but what ultimately matters is the experience. How does a phone improve your life, make communicating with the people you care about most easier? With the HTC One, the company covered what is by now becoming the standardized specs: big Full HD screen, fast processor, LTE, etc.

But the company has also introduced new features it hopes will change the way you interact with your super phone. By including BlinkFeed, you’ll have at-a-glance access to all your favorite social and news content, so you’re always up to speed. And with these so-called UltraPixels, HTC has engineered a better way to capture life’s moments, no matter how well lit the scene is.

It’s these thoughtful touches that make specs secondary, and shows that HTC, despite the company’s struggles, can craft a pretty darn good device. We’re excited to spend more time with this amazing-looking handset. Until then, stay tuned for more HTC One coverage.

And because Samsung is an avalanche of Android success. But that could change. Let’s get acquainted […]

HTC One Global Carriers Announced

The HTC One is essentially going to be all over the planet in short order, and you’re going to need a scorecard to keep track of all the carriers. Typically when a new phone is released you’ll hear about one or two carriers, and that more regions will be added later. Well HTC decided to […]

What’s Up With the New HTC One’s UltraPixels?

HTC must be looney. In an age when bigger and more equals better, the company has taken a step back and introduced a meager 4-megapixel camera into its next big flagship. Something is wrong here. Actually, all is perfectly fine, and those megapixels are actually what HTC is referring to as “UltraPixels.” Don’t get too […]
