Gift of an Era

A phone that exudes class and polish and manages to impress the hell out of us with its performance and features.
Let’s take a look:

4.7-inch display with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, giving it a pixel density of 469 ppi, which makes it richer than the iPhone 5 (326 ppi) and the Samsung Galaxy S4 (441 ppi). The One’s display is of the Super LCD 3 variety and, as a result, is on par with the other smartphones in its segment.

The HTC One is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2 GB of RAM and an Adreno 320 GPU. The One doesn’t support microSD cards but does offer 32GB of internal storage, which should be sufficient for all your needs

The HTC One supports 3G, Wi-Fi (with Wi-Fi Hotspot), DLNA and Bluetooth 4.0. Outside India, the One comes with 4G LTE support and you’ll also be able to make use of its NFC chip.The HTC One comes out of the box with Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) and will be upgraded to 4.2.2 in the future. As a result, you can install any app available for download on the Google Play Store and the One will run it effortlessly.

Design & Usability
HTC One has a very flat front with the glass display taking up almost all of the real estate. On both the top and the bottom of the display, are strips of metal about a quarter inch thick, the former of which sports a speaker grill and the front 2.1MP camera while the latter only has the speaker grill. The design is similar to the back of the new iPhone and the face of the BlackBerry Z10 but it doesn’t look (or feel) like an attempt at copying. In fact, the HTC One probably looks better than either of the two phones. If black slabs of glass and metal is the overarching design statement of this era of smartphones, then the HTC One is right at the pinnacle of that trend.

Imaging & Multimedia
The HTC One’s camera performance is a story that can be told in two parts. The strength of the UltraPixel technology that the One features is in low-light photography. When shooting in less than ideal lighting, images shot by the One have almost no noise. This is very good if you tend to shoot a lot of photos in environments that have sub-par lighting. Images captured by the One also tend to have very realistic colours, which is a refreshing change especially for mobile phone cameras that tend to exaggerate colour saturation.

However, the downside is that the images do tend to look dull and a little too realistic. Most users who shoot pictures with their mobile phones tend to be casual photographers and may not take a liking to the realistic, albeit dull-looking images.

Audio & Video Playback
HTC One is well suited to provide a very good multimedia experience. The display is really good to watch videos on but the playback suffers from limited format support. We tried playing some of our test videos on the phone including an XviD file, an MKV file and an MP4 file. Only the MP4 video played without issues while the other two refused to play with sound. We installed the MX video player and tried to play the videos again but we stumbled across the same problems. This is unfortunate since the One’s audio playback is exceptional.

The HTC One continues the tradition of HTC phones being really good at music playback. We just wish it didn’t have issues when playing XviD and MKV files.

HTC one is very good phone.It score good point in all section.So it depend on you to pick or drop this nice phone.
