HTC One Review & Specification
HTC has been a prominent contender in the smartphone world for quite some time now. HTC has been known to release smartphones that are more oriented to entertainment purposes, such as the HTC Evo 3D. HTC’s latest release is the HTC One and it sure has a lot of hype backed up behind it, but does the HTC One hold up to all the hype? Let’s take a look at some of the specs and features of the HTC One.
Dimensions and Size
The HTC One is set to be quite a large phone with dimensions that measure up to 5.41 x 2.69 x 0.37 inches. This large size is once again more entertainment based, allowing for users to watch movies and play games with the utmost of ease. The weight of the HTC One stands at 143 grams, which is quite in ratio with its body size.
The HTC One has a primary camera which is of 4 mega pixels, that works on a maximum resolution of 2688 x 1520 pixels. In comparison to the other popular smartphones of today, the HTC One’s primary camera is meager and obsolete. The HTC One also has a secondary camera which works at 2 mega pixels. Both of these cameras allow for video recording at 1080p at the 30 frames per second. Both of the cameras are also supported by the HDR function, both for capturing pictures or making videos.
The HTC One’s five inch display screen has a SUPER LCD3 capacitive touch screen that works with 16 million colors. This feature of the HTC One stands out quite differently from other smartphones which are generally using TFT touch screens. The HTC One’s maximum screen resolution is at 1080 x 1920 pixels which equals up to around 469 pixels per inch across its 4.7 inch screen. The display factor of the HTC One is quite impressive as compared to the obsolete camera is quite impressive.
Processor and RAM
Processors are fundamental to the working power of a smartphone. Basically the stronger the processor of a smartphone is, the stronger the smartphone itself will be. The HTC One has a Quad-core 1.7 GHz Krait 300 processor which is indeed a massive powerhouse compared to the processors that are available today. The HTC One comes with 2GB of allocated RAM which is also great considering how most of the top smartphones of today are at 1GB of RAM. Having said this the HTC One should be very fast in all of its processing tasks.
The HTC One comes in two different version of either 32GB internal memory or 64GB internal memory. The HTC One doesn’t allow for user upgrade and this is somewhat disappointing. However the large sizes of the internal memory already make it more than enough and that’s where the HTC One was saved from a landslide in memory.
Overall the HTC One will be a major contender in the world of smartphones for the year of 2013. HTC itself has been going through a dry slump as of late while Apple and Samsung dominate the smartphone industry. The HTC One is a must have phone for anyone who is a smartphone enthusiast. Will the HTC One be able to bring HTC back to its former glory? Only time will tell.
