As a dazzling device loaded with state of the art features, it’s easy see how the HTC One quickly became one of the most popular smartphones. Its slick design and huge HD screen instantly catch the eye. And beyond its initial appeal, the HTC One’s strong performance has helped it develop word-of-mouth status as a stunningly satisfying gadget. Here are some of the amazing features that have been blowing buyers away.
When you first hold the HTC One, it makes a strong impression. It’s hard not to be drawn into the display, but if you don’t let it distract you, you’ll notice the slim, tapered, full metal body. It’s the modern, elegant lines of the case that provide the overall svelte but sturdy feel of the phone.
At an incredible 468 pixels-per-inch, the 4.7-inch full HD display delivers crisp, bright images. Underneath, the powerful graphics processing unit on the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 600 processor is designed for super-fast, smooth 3D graphics. These features make the HTC One a media powerhouse, whipping through games and videos at breakneck speeds.
To reinforce the HTC One’s emphasis on media, it backs up its immersive HD display with powerful internal audio: a rarity for devices so slim. BoomSound with Beats Audio Processing, funneled through dual front speakers with built-in digital amplifiers, delivers resonant sound. The HTC One is a landmark in portable digital audio technology, delivering enormous sound from very tight quarters.
Meanwhile, HTC’s Blinkfeed system actively streams live content right to your homescreen, giving you constant up-to-date access to all your important feeds. This can include social media, current news, messages, videos, photos, and whatever else you desire.
HTC knows that many people use their smartphone as their primary camera, so they designed the camera on the HTC One to be as advanced and intuitive as possible. The impressive Ultrapixel camera sports a one-press continuous shooting option, helping you get great action shots by offering an array of photos to choose from. But the real star here is the incredibly advanced sensor, which enables the HTC One to work wonders in low light situations, giving you vivid, true-to-life images at dawn or dusk.
