My experience (rather than a review) of using HTC One
By AWenger | 7 May 2014
The technical specs have already been clearly mentioned above so I wont stress on them again. I have been using HTC One since 10 months and this is more of my experience of using HTC One rather than a review. Let me be clearly honest here, I would have not gone for HTC One if I had 40K to buy a phone. I was lucky enough to win it in a giveaway. I will make it easier by mentioning the positives and the negatives separately. POSITIVES: There should be no question over the touch characteristics of a HTC phone. The design is very nice. The sleek finish and the elegant metal body make the phone look very classy. The dual front facing speakers is something new and it makes the phone look better. The screen size is decent as compared to the current phones. The display is very precise given its high PPI. And the performance is brilliant too. I have never experienced any lagging issues in these 10 months. It supports all the latest high-end games and apps. Ultrapixel is a nice innovation by HTC. The front camera is more than capable of taking good pictures. Zoe mode helps you to take talking pictures. The new Android updates are rolled out regularly so you can stay up-to-date with the new Android version. The sound is quite good and the Beats amplifiers are a luxury. Blinkfeed is also one great feature introduced by HTC which connects to various social networking sites and keep you updated with the recent happenings. It also has NFC and Infrared. NEGATIVES: Given the screen size and location of the power button, it is a bit tedious to reach the power button to lock and unlock the phone. You either have to drag you hand mid-way to reach the power button or use the other hand. The metal body is not all merry too, I've experienced heating issues while playing high-end games (Asphalt 8, Injustice: Gods Among Us etc.) and also while charging. The camera is not that effective in low light, you'll see purple patches around the corners of the photo. The flash is powerful but it does not cover large distance. (This is in context to the fact that I was able to take a clearer and a more distant photo in a dark room with Moto G than HTC One.) Another major drawback is the battery life. I simply don't get how have they mentioned 'Decent battery back-up' in the Good part. I have never survived a day without looking for a port to charge my phone. Given the Indian audience, it would be fair enough to count the price in the negatives too.

The ONE and only ONE :)
By Rohit Shitole | 8 May 2014
I'd like to start my review by highlighting the not so good features of this device. The camera on this device is great during day light but worst under low light. It has a pink hue when clicked under low light conditions. Although this can be easily fixed by replacing the camera but HTC should've got it right the first time. Another feature is the Battery life. Although the battery last the whole day on moderate usage but I'd expect more from HTC. The ONE has an aluminium uni-body which makes it look sexy and sleek, it is also the best part of the device. Awesome features like blink-feed, Zoe, Ultra pixel camera makes this a device to die for. ONE is a paradise for hard-core gamer's. You can play heavy-duty games and this device wont disappoint in that regard. Also the experience of playing games and watching movies is a bliss, thanks to the Full HD 4.7 inch screen and Beats Audio. Love it or Hate it. I've made my choice and I don't regret it. My HTC, the one and only...!

Not for indians
By Himanshu Kumar | 2 May 2014
Htc one . Its a dual sim phone Htc has worked a lot on display for this phone and gives all of their on display htc one comes with 4.7 inch full hd 1080 display that gives resolution of 468 ppi optical lamination to reduce glare and reflection ,80degree viewing angle with ips gorilla glass 2 . Running on jeally bean operating system 4.1.2 moving on to cpu which is heart of phone is powered by next generation 1.7 ghz quad core processor which is good but for a phone which has a tag price of upto 42650 is not a smart choice because other brands are giving a big processor within this price.Having a ram of 2 gb makes mmakes possible for playing some good games.with this phone htc has comes up with ultramegapixel technology thats is not increasing the number of pixels but increasing the size of pixel .back camera comes with 4 ultramegapixel and front with 2 megapixel with wide angle lens with hdr capabilities .both camera support image stabilisation feature by htc.coming on to internal storage it can vary upto 32 gb to 64 gb .with features like bsi ,smart flash,wifi ,bluetooth ,infrared,binkfeed,zoe ,boom sound add a lot of shinning star to htc one.but battry market by 2300 mah adds aa slight disappointed .suming up htc one is a good inovation by htc but its not for countries like whose focus are on mid segment phone.if htc would have slightycut off the prize then this would become a hit in india
