    HTC One Review - Beautiful Trendsetting Android Smartphone

    In many ways, the HTC One is a pioneer, innovating upon features that most Android smartphones lack. It was the first premium Android smartphone to offer more than just a plastic casing and paid much more focus to design (almost like the Apple iPhone). It offers features like Full 1080p HD on a 4.7-inch screen, an UltraPixel camera and software features which you won't find on any other smartphone. Is this the smartphone for you though? Read on and find out.

    Design / Appearance

    Before the HTC One, most Android smartphones all looked the same, were basically made out of plastic and looked downright boring. The HTC One shook things up by taking the same design approach as the Apple iPhone, giving much thought and focus to a new tough metal unibody chassis with a rounded brushed metal back. In making the overall smartphone, HTC designers decided to stick to a zero-gap construction, which makes for a beautiful smartphone with no gaps in between the components. The result is a nearly sealed case apart from the earphone jack and micro-USB port. In short, the HTC One is one of the most beautiful smartphones in the market, even after so many other Android smartphones have followed or tried to follow what it did.

    Benchmarks Show HTC Butterfly S Faster than HTC One

    We've always felt that the HTC Butterfly and by extension the HTC Butterfly S never really got the attention and hype that they deserved. During the HTC Butterfly's time this was because HTC was pinning it's hopes of salvation on the HTC One but now that that time has passed the stigma seems to have overshadowed the HTC Butterfly S. Regardless, some people have gone and proven that the HTC Butterfly S for one is worthy of more than just a second glance as it manages to beat the flagship HTC One in performance benchmarks despite having the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor and chipset. This is probably because the HTC One is clocked at 1.7GHz while the HTC Butterfly S is clocked at 1.9GHz.

  • Rumours: HTC One With Windows Phone 8 Coming Soon?

    Rumours: HTC One With Windows Phone 8 Coming Soon?

    Perhaps looking to capitalize on the HTC One's success, HTC have been rumoured to be looking into releasing a Windows Phone powered HTC One. According to tipsters, this new Windows Phone HTC One won't be exactly the same as the original HTC One with a screen between 4 and 5 inches.

    This version could take the way of the upcoming HTC One Mini which retains the metal chassis, UltraPixel camera and front-facing Beats Audio speakers. We feel that since most Windows Phone smartphones seem to be packing dual-SIM capabilities it would be a good idea for HTC to just take the China-only version instead (which comes with dual-SIM and a removable battery). No news on when exactly it would be available but it is expected in Q3 of 2013 before the holidays and it should also pack in Microsoft's latest Windows Phone 8.1 mobile operating system as well.
