The HTC One proves HTC is a force to be reckoned with. Just when I thought HTC may be doomed, I’m super excited to be totally wrong.
Just take a look at this phone and it’s amazing innovations. HTC has made this smartphone truly the smartphone we’ve been wanting for a while. There’s no compromise on size, thickness, weight or build quality, yet it far exceeds what’s on offer today and adds some features found nowhere else! I was totally content with my Samsung Galaxy S2X.. until this damn phone came along!
First up, the phone shoots HDR video (a first) AND through its Beats Audio technology called (and I chuckle a bit) BoomSound it even records a special dual-mic HDR audio track! Moreover, this BoomSound creates the best sound in a smartphone ever as the speakers are front-facing and the bass cavities are deeper than any other phone. That’s pretty innovative, I have to give it to HTC, I can’t wait to see the media capabilities of this thing!
But that’s not even the best part of this sucker, not even close. Have you ever wished that you could control your infrared (IR) TV with your smartphone? As in, use your smartphone as a IR television remote control? I know I dream of this almost nightly and the genius folks at HTC have gone ahead and integrated an IR unit right in the power button! You can now control virtually any television with HTC’s built-in television remote control app! That’s very cool as it gives my smartphone a whole new purpose and never again will I have to use some analog remote!
Not only does this thing innovate, but it also improves on virtually every spec of the modern smartphone, it’s got:
- Brand new HTC Sense 5 which is WAY better than previous versions which I found clunky
- 1080p resolution, giving it the pixel density (468ppi) of any smartphone on the planet
- Four monster processor cores running at 1.7GHz each
- Custom-developed 8MP camera imaging sensor with enlarged pixels that can absorb roughly three times more light than those inside a conventional 8-megapixel camera
- 2GB of RAM
- 32GB of storage as standard (a 64GB variant is planned for the APAC region)
- 2300mAh battery
- GPS and GLONASS
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 802.11ac Wi-Fi
What more do I really have to say? Take a look at the pictures, wow. If the fine folks at HTC ever see this, please send me a unit to praise you even further!
