Reviews for the HTC One

87% Review HTC One Smartphone | Notebookcheck
Aluminum rocket. The HTC One is the latest high-end smartphone from the Taiwanese manufacturer. A swift Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 Quad-Core-SoC, stereo speakers, a 4.7-inch display with 1080x1920 pixels and the latest software packed in a high-quality aluminum unibody. The new king of smartphones for 680 Euros (~$878)?

HTC has pulled off a blinder with the HTC One. It’s a gorgeous phone with a beautiful screen, and we think it's a more desirable handset than the Sony Xperia Z. Given you can move BlinkFeed out of view, the HTC should appeal to everyone. It will be especially tempting to those who crave the low-light capabilities of its camera. Its metal chassis is also a big selling point - and one, based on past models, that is unlikely to appear on the Samsung Galaxy S4.

iPhone 5c vs HTC One comparison review: 'cheap' iPhone can't compete with HTC's flagship Android - and costs more
Source: PC Advisor English
Evenly matched on price, cameras and performance, the HTC One wins on storage and display, whilst the iPhone 5c may just edge it on battery life. Build quality and software are of a similar quality but different. But if you have no strong feelings on design or Android/iOS, you need to opt for the HTC.

The HTC One might be the most desirable phone available right now. Its metal-backed body feels fantastic in the hand, its screen is superb, performance is great and Sense 5 offers some interesting new features that you can choose to side-step if you prefer old-style Sense. The UltraPixel camera is a mite disappointing given the ballyhoo made at its launch, but it proves that HTC is one of just a few mobile companies trying something truly interesting.

100% Ultrapixels, Zoes, Blinkfeed and more: HTC is going all out
Source: Techradar English
As we said, this is the best HTC phone ever, without a doubt. But we'll go one better than that: it's the best phone on the market full stop. The Samsung Galaxy S4 isn't far behind at all with its stunning screen and rich detail, but for sheer level of functionality, innovation and just overall effect it has in the hand, we can't help but recommend the HTC One to anyone looking to buy a new smartphone. So whether it's the Ultrapixel camera that extends the range of photos you can take, or the moving photos on offer, or simply the improved speakers bolted on the front (as long as you don't play them on public transport) the HTC One takes the best the smartphone market has to offer and just makes it better.

HTC One vs Nexus 5 smartphone comparison review - which great Android phone should you buy?
Source: PC Advisor English
You should buy SIM free, and therefore you should buy the Nexus 5. Both are great handsets, but the Nexus 5 is priced to shift. However, if you are likely to purchase on contract, you have a choice to make between two brilliant Android phones. Either way you'll be happy.

80% HTC One review: great high-end Android matches, but can't beat the best. A good deal
Source: PC Advisor English
The HTC One is up there with the very best smartphones on the market today. It has superb performance, and excellent build quality spoiled only slightly by running hot in use. You can't fault the feature set, and it matches the other high-end products in terms of price. In terms of audio and visual output it is unsurpassed. The interface might be an acquired taste for some, and we weren't overly impressed with the camera. It's not perfect, but alongside the Xperia Z and iPhone 5 this is about as good a phone as you can buy.

95% HTC One Red Smartphone Review
Source: Kitguru English
It’s no secret that HTC are trying very hard to regain market share from Samsung after a steady decline over the past few years. There is no doubt in our minds that the One is the best phone that HTC have released in some time as it cannot really be faulted. The only drawback of the HTC One is the lack of expandable storage. The 32 GB version may not provide enough space for some users and the 64 GB version carries a heavy price premium. Camera performance was very good though, despite the low resolution sensor.

The HTC One blends an unmatched premium design for Android phones with impressive performance, a beautiful 1080p display and rich, front-mounted speakers. HTC Sense 5.0, with its Blinkfeed feature, adds flavor to the stock Android OS. And while Samsung's TouchWiz software offers more features, Sense has a cleaner look and feel and suffers from less lag.

With the iPhone 5 and HTC One neck and neck in so many areas it's almost impossible to choose an outright winner. You get a little more for your money with the HTC One in storage, connectivity and screen. However, the ultimate decision is whether you want iOS or Android.

HTC was the first company to embrace Android, but it’s had a tough couple of years. The HTC One is currently the world’s best smartphone. It’s got the best design, specification and screen so, if you’re in the market for a high-end handset, this is the phone to buy.

Google Play Edition: Galaxy S 4 and HTC One Review
Source: Slashgear English
Android enthusiasts can be a demanding group. The call for pure-Android versions of flagships other than the Nexus range has been a consistent one, and it will be interesting to see how many Google Play Edition phones actually get bought. Adding to the muddle is the pricing: the HTC comes in at $599, the Samsung more expensive again at $649. What the two Google Play Edition phones offer is a compromise somewhere in-between. The freedom of pure Android and the freshness and undeniable appeal of flagship hardware. It’s a compromise that comes at a cost, and it’s one with the risk of still relying on manufacturers for new software rather than getting it straight from Google, but if your wallet is deep enough then the pure Android experience, liberation from carrier subsidies, and top-tier specifications make them each excellent, if niche, options.

Despite a few caveats when considered as a package the HTC One looks impressive, is fast and easy to use. However the HTC One is unlikely to get even close to selling as many units as the juggernaut Galaxy S4 aided by Samsung’s massive marketing spend.

On balance, the HTC One justifies that premium. The loss of expandable storage is a blow, but there’s little else amiss: it’s a stylish and highly capable all-rounder. HTC needed to come out fighting with its latest handset, and it’s done so with gusto: the One is the finest smartphone money can buy at the time of writing. The only serious competitor on the horizon is the Samsung Galaxy S4, which had been announced but hadn’t officially launched when we went to print. For now at least, HTC has a real winner on its hands, but one wonders if it can translate this into a real comeback.

HTC One for T-Mobile: what's different?
Source: Engadget English
If you've been eyeing the HTC One as your next smartphone, it's safe to say that T-Mobile offers a very compelling option. By and large, the handset is a faithful interpretation of the original, which is all the more reason to fall in love. Unique to T-Mobile's version is LTE support for both T-Mobile and AT&T, which makes it the One to get if you're interested in its flexibility as an unlocked smartphone.

When you pick up the HTC One, you instantly get the sense that this is a high-end phone with plenty to offer. The One’s outer shell aesthetically pleasing and gives the phone a high-end look. It’s also solid thanks to its full-metal unibody design. This design adds a bit of weight to the phone, but it’s a tradeoff we suspect many users will tolerate.
