  • Its the one, m8.
    Chaitanya Narula (May 7, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    HTC has been producing android phones longer than anyone. We could safely argue that its been doing that better than anyone, too. Same is with the One. Yes, the phone is in a class of being extremely expensive but this is a piece of hardware that you are proud to own. The way its built and it feels in hand, i keep finding ways to use my phone more and more. It has top of the line specs any hardware manufacturer can offer. Snapdragon 801, adreno 330, 2 gb ram, 1080 5 inch lcd make it a joy to use. Its extremely snappy, smooth and just doenst run out of battery no matter how much you use it. The camera is one aspect where the phone doesnt measure up. Its not disappointing outright, it just isn't as good as the S5 or the 5s. It does see things where other phones just shut their eyes but that's not enough. The photos are just too muddy and there is not enough detail. The front facing speakers might be the best thing HTC has done in the one series. They sound incredible. They direct sound right at the user giving a very pleasant listening experience. The HTC Sense has gotten a little better and HTC knows the direction they wish to move in and are going towards it, unlike samsung which is going everywhere. I quite like the fitbit integration as well. Its hard not to recommend this phone. It looks amazing, performs really well and runs for long. The only downsidde is the camera which doesnt snap very sharp pictures.

  • Fabulous phone
    Shohrat Shankar (May 11, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    I bought this phone over S5 and am very happy with my decision. Reasons for giving it 5 stars: -It has a great design and build. Metal body is great and feels very premium. -sense UI is ok; however, the optimisations done by HTC are great. The UI is super smooth and very responsive. It is even better than an IPhone. -battery life is pretty good. It is better at times than my previous phone(Note 2) -fast processor makes every task blazing fast -Camera is very good for everyday use (phone is never meant to replace the DSLR) -There is not too much bloatware -great sound and speaker quality -motion gestures are useful and convenient (not too many, just right) -touch screen customisable (if rooted) navbar buttons Some drawbacks: -The low pixel count in camera, might be a problem for some who use this as only camera -Screen is not as Vibrant as AMOLED screens. I would sincerely recommend this to anyone who wants to buy a high end phone.
