HTC builds good smartphones for years with advanced technology and nice user interface. Nevertheless, the absolute success will not be adjusted easily. With the HTC One X rang the manufacturer therefore the last year of a new era – more design and better technology was the credo. With the new HTC One, he has finally won and the power throne – at least until the competition as Samsung introduces their own devices. AreaMobile shows the test of the HTC One, what exactly has to offer a smartphone.
Design & Processing
HTC One – the name chosen does not seem particularly clever, because even the two predecessors were called so, albeit with an X and X + as an additive. Nevertheless, with that description of the Taiwanese manufacturer simply makes clear how important this is a device (one) for the company’s future. For in spite of good reviews for the previous Ones – against the marketing of Samsung HTC was previously powerless. Passively apply for the Taiwanese to own top quality products and the HTC a few spots were lost in the overwhelming mass of the clips of the South Koreans.
In fact, the HTC One test has what it takes, with his total package to competing products with confidence to face. It begins with the design. Where others rely on fancy, but unpleasant edged glass or plastic vile customers in exchange for MSRP of 600 euros and more pressing in the hand, HTC used regardless of the difficulties that it might give to the reception, high-quality metal. Of this material is at least the region above and below the display, and the entire back. How expensive to manufacture the components, the manufacturer demonstrated in a recent video. Nevertheless, the effort is worthwhile.
The back follows with its slight curve in the shape of the palm. Not least because of the edges, send the device never feel uncomfortable, but almost organic. Because it is not even on that the unit at its thickest point – namely, in the centre of the case – proud is 9.7 millimetres thick. Because it flattens, out to the sides as starting about the HTC 8X and there measures only 6 mm.
Thus, the unit appears to be much handier than indicated by the specifications. The 143 grams, which the HTC One does not count necessarily the lightest smartphones on the market, interfere in no way, because together with the many metal gives the impression of the weight durability and value.
