Submission + - Hands on with the new HTC One

adeelarshad82 writes: HTC's gorgeous new flagship phone, the HTC One, is described as well-designed and elegant. The phone looks like none other in the market. The phone is a block of tough, silvery aluminum with two inlaid plastic lines on the back. Apparently, it takes more than three hours to mill and tool the metal for each phone. Measuring 5.4 by 2.7 by 0.36 inches, the phone weighs around 5 ounces. The thrillingly bright 4.7-inch, 1080p Super LCD 3 screen with 468 pixels per inch is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor. According to the specs, the phone will come with either 32 or 64GB of storage and 2GB of RAM, and it's backed by a non-removable 2300mAh battery. Unfortunately the phone doesn't include a memory card slot and has just two ports: a headphone jack and a MicroUSB that doubles as an MHL output for HDMI TVs. HTC One's "UltraPixel" camera is nothing to sniff at either. HTC is trying to replace megapixels with "ultrapixels," cutting down the size of photos but using much larger individual pixels to sharply reduce noise and improve low-light performance. In a quick comparison with iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3, One's images were far clearer and brighter. The HTC One runs Android 4.1.2 with HTC's new Sense 5, which includes several new features out which HTC Zoe is definitely worth getting excited about. Short for "zoetrope," the Zoe mode records three seconds of video every time you take a photo. You can look at the Zoes individually, or let the phone automatically sew them together into a 30-second "highlight reel" from an event or evening made up of photos, videos, and Zoes.
