The design seems to have been a no-brainier, The design is full-metal with a zero gap construction. The edges feel slim and there is the 4.7-inch full HD display which has an unprecedented 468 pixels per inch resolution.
But this beautiful piece of hardware isn’t perfect. The power key on top is feels embedded into the panel and you have to keep searching for it to unlock the phone.
You might wonder what a 4MP camera is doing when mid-level phones have 8MP. HTC one is pushing its new “ultra pixel” technology which the company claims gives the sensor larger pixels that can take up to three times more light improving performance .The camera comes with an optical image stabilizer. And we must say hTC claims are not unfounded as the images captured are crisp and bright, even in low-light conditions. But there was noise in some images.
The new Zeo app captures videos and still images simultaneously. Technically, it shoots one second video before taking a still image and then continue to shoot for next 3 seconds and then stitches them together. It also captures decent videos at 1080p resolution.
It has got a new quad-core Snapdragon from Qualcomm clocked at 1.7GHz, yoked to a 2GB RAM which is sort of becoming the new industry norm for high-end smart phones. The performance was snappy and the Quadrant score of 12,122 .The phone did everything from browsing, camera, gaming, documentation to multitasking without any lag which is good.
The 2300 mah battery should last a day with average use, but our two push mail accounts, Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp running full-time with browsing, calling and a little camera use, it died before the end of the day.So hTC One took too much time to charge.
