This is HTC one

Today HTC finally unveiled their brand new top of the line Android smartphone.

And I am telling you this is the best looking phone I have seen in quite some time. The HTC one is made from a single piece of aluminium much like the  HTC Legend was in it’s time.

But there ends all the Similarities.

Make no mistake this is a true contender for the throne of the Android smart phones. By making their state of the art smart phone from Aluminium they have recognized what the buyers of these premium phones want. Something that is fast as lightning and looks like a millions bucks.


HTC One design

With the risk of making a lot of Sony fans mad at me I would say that this phone looks a lot better than the newly released Sony Xperia z. Not that the glass look of the xperia z is a bad look. It’s just something special with holding a phone made from a block of aluminium between your hands. The true test though will likely come on march 14. when Samsung almost certainly will announce their Galaxy s4.


HTC One screen

It should come as no surprise to anyone that the HTC One comes with a full HD 1080P screen. It would almost be impossible for a self respecting phone maker to announce a top model smart phone with a resolution beneath the spec that we have com so accustomed to over the last couple of months.

The screen is 4.7 inches big which gives it a pixel density of 469 pixels per inch. Quite impressive, it will be interesting to see it compared to the other full HD screens that are popping up all over the place.

The HTC One sports a quad core prosessor much like the one in the Sony xperia Z. The slight difference though is that the one in the HTC is clocked a little bit higher which should give it a slight advantage over the competition. Most likely it will be hard to distinguish the Xperia Z and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy s4 from this one.

More likely the biggest differenses will be in the form of their design and the skin that these manufacturers put on top of the stock Android GUI. This will also play a role in the performance as the different skins putts a different toll on the CPU the phone is equipped with.
