AT&T HTC One Review

AT&T HTC One Review

Is the HTC One the best Android smartphone around, and has the wait for the AT&T LTE version been worth it? We've already spent more than 6,000 words on the HTC One, back in our review of the European version, but this was our chance to put the first US-specific variant to the test. To do that we took it out into the wild to put the key selling points - specifically the UltraPixel camera and the 4G speed - on trial at the New York Auto Show, among other places, as well as to see if the non-removable battery is a deal-breaker in the face of the fast-incoming Samsung Galaxy S 4. Read on to find out how the HTC One fared.

Facebook Home and HTC First Hands-on

Facebook Home and HTC First Hands-on

It's the Facebook phone… but it's every phone. Facebook Home is here, and it wants to take control of your Android experience, a new software suite rather than a specific handset. Unveiled at Facebook HQ this morning, Home arrives on Android via the Play store from April 12 and splashes your photos and friends across the lockscreen and the homescreen. We've been playing with Facebook Home today on the HTC First, the first device to fit into Facebook's Home Program; read on for our first-impressions.

HTC declares war on Samsung: GALAXY S 4 is “more of the same”

HTC declares war on Samsung: GALAXY S 4 is “more of the same”

This week the Samsung release of the GALAXY S 4 saw HTC summoning up their best set of retaliation words to go into direct battle with the hero phone, saying the HTC One should, by all means, eat its competition's lunch. A comment has come through today from no less than HTC's chief marketing officer Benjamin Ho regarding the GALAXY S 4, the HTC One, and consumer's decision between the two. It should be clear at this point that HTC isn't afraid to claim their 2013 hero is ready to beat down even the loftiest of releases - Broadway dances and singing and all.

HTC One Review [2013]

HTC One Review [2013]

It's been a tough few years for HTC, unsung victim of the Apple-Samsung smartphone war, and the new HTC One has a lot to do to fix that. The company has seen its place in Android dwindle from trailblazer to also-ran, as Samsung's cutting-edge hardware and vast marketing budget forced Galaxy to the fore. Solid phones like 2012's One X and One S failed to relight HTC's fire, and so it has done the only thing it can: raise its game much, much higher with the HTC One. We're back to the days of risk-taking hardware decisions and legitimately interesting software, but the big question is whether the One can pull it off. Read on for the full SlashGear review.

HTC SyncManager update to put the focus on iPhone imports

HTC SyncManager update to put the focus on iPhone imports

HTC recently announced the One smartphone and it looks like the company is going to try and make things a bit simpler for those switching from an iPhone. HTC is reportedly working on improving their SyncManager software so that it will be able to import data from an iPhone backup file. These are the files that are created with iTunes and if things arrive as expected, One users should be able to get data to include images and videos as well as calendar entries and text messages.

SlashGear 101: HTC UltraPixel Camera Technology

SlashGear 101: HTC UltraPixel Camera Technology

This week we're seeing HTC come into the light with a massively important new device by the name of HTC One, and with it, a new collection of features included under the "HTC UltraPixel Camera" umbrella. With the features we're working with here on the HTC One hero phone's implementation of HTC UltraPixel Camera, you'll find that image quality is, first and foremost, not solely dependent on the amount of megapixels a camera has. HTC UltraPixel Camera technology is here demonstrated with an UltraPixel Sensor, HTC ImageChip, f/2.0 Aperture, and Optical Image Stabilization.

Will 2013 be the year of the HTC One?

Will 2013 be the year of the HTC One?

All of a sudden, I'm excited about HTC again. After a dire 2012 and a dreary line-up the twelve months before that, the HTC One is a blast of fresh air and has a real "return to form" feel for the company. I was lucky enough to spend some extended time with the One ahead of today's launch, and came away impressed with HTC's attention to detail and concerned that it would struggle to communicate its message. Rather than follow the trend of more megapixels, HTC opted out and went for a photography system that, it claims, is far more relevant to how people actually use their smartphones.

HTC One hands-on: Sense 5, BlinkFeed and TV

HTC One hands-on: Sense 5, BlinkFeed and TV

If the 4-megapixel camera is HTC's big play with the One's hardware, HTC BlinkFeed is its big software play on the new flagship. A new homescreen for Sense 5, BlinkFeed works as a smorgasbord for "snackable" content - as HTC envisages it, the sort of instant gratification people are looking for when they whip their phone out in an idle moment. That happens more often than you might think, too; HTC's research among its own users found they woke their phone up a couple of hundred times a day. Read on for full details and our first impressions, plus more on Sense 5 and the new universal remote TV app.

HTC One hands-on: UltraPixel Camera and Zoe

HTC One hands-on: UltraPixel Camera and Zoe

HTC's most controversial decision with the HTC One is going to be the choice of camera. In a market where "more" is so often seen as "better" the 4-megapixel equivalent main camera on the back of the One is going to raise eyebrows, no matter how hard HTC pushes its "UltraPixel" branding. Assuming the company can get would-be users to pay attention to the theory, though, there's a whole lot to like about the UltraPixel approach: increasing the amount of data for each pixel that makes up the final frame.
