HTC One Review
|Our HTC One Review concluded “The HTC One is among the best handsets available. It’s a jack of all trades but also a master of most, with very little that it doesn’t do well”.|

It is by far the most premium, compromise free handset that HTC has ever made. That’s obvious even at first glance as the HTC One is sculpted from a single piece of aluminium, giving it a premium look that few other phones can compete with.
It has a 4.7 inch 1080 x 1920 display with a 469 ppi pixel density for crystal clear images. The HTC One is a powerhouse of a phone too, with a 1.7 GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM.
It has an impressive 32GB of built in storage, but unfortunately there’s no micro SD card slot, so it’s almost a necessity that there’s a lot of memory built in.
The handset was recently updated to Android 4.2.2, so it’s almost running the latest version of the OS and it has an impressive 4 Ultrapixel camera, capable of taking superb low light shots, as well as shooting 1080p video at 30fps. Additionally the camera features ‘Zoe’ mode, which takes 20 photos and a 3 second video, giving you the power to always capture the perfect shot. The HTC One also has a front facing 2.1 megapixel camera.
The phone delivers great audio performance by including two large front facing speakers complete with Beats Audio, for loud, high quality music without the need to plug headphones in. It also has BlinkFeed, which allows you to get all of your news and social network updates in one place.
Its 2300 mAh battery gives the HTC One solid battery life, though with heavy use it won’t last more than a day. The HTC One has a full house of connectivity options with support for Ultrafast 3G, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and infrared.
HTC One Release Date & Price
The HTC One is out now and available in black, silver or red from around £405. That puts it roughly on par with the Samsung Galaxy S4 in terms of price and there are very few phones that cost more.
On a 24 month 4G contract it will set you back from £41 a month with EE (including a one off charge of £49.99), while on both Vodafone and O2 it’s free from £42 per month. 24 month 3G contracts start at around £27 per month.
