HTC One Review

I recently had the pleasure of seeing an HTC One hands on. Being the phone geek I am, I had to give the new HTC flagship phone a deep look into what HTC has brought to the HTC One.
First things first, the size of the phone is great. Some may say too big, but a standard size of today's phones. As for the screen resolution, this has to be the best screen on any phone I have used or even seen. I had the pleasure of going through the different apps, home screens and even saw a few brief seconds of Madagascar 3.

Which brings me to the next new feature of the HTC One, HTC Soundboom.... the only word I can think of to describe the sound on the new HTC One is phenomenal combined with the Beats Audio built in to the two stereo speakers located on the front of the phone is amazing.

I'd also like to point out that HTC has enabled the option to utilize Beats Audio along with the built in speakers on the phone, as where prior to the HTC One this was not an option.
HTC Blinkfeed is another new feature HTC has incorporated in to the HTC One. Some may find this feature useful, however I’m not a huge fan. HTC Blinkfeed is HTC's version of Flipboard and works very similar to Flipboard.
HTC Zoe is a great concept, this feature allows for multiple different phone options. One being the option to store photos online to save or email to family and friends, the ability to take a phone and edit the image right on the mobile device. Such as if you are taking a picture and a person walks though the picture you can edit the person out of the picture. This is all made possible with the help of the HTC Zoe feature that allows you to continue capturing the picture even after the picture has been taken. 

The body of the phone is great, its a solid metal body that just feels right in your hand, along with the Sense Voice noise canceling mics built in to the metal body. on the back it houses the camera the industry first and only ultrapixel camera  HTC has not said what the camera equals out to be in megapixels, however according to my findings it somewhere in the range of 4-4.5 megapixels.  

All in all this is going to be a huge device for HTC, Sprint, T-Mobile, and AT&T. Please be sure to sound off in the comments section and let us know what you think.
