I fell for the HTC One in a Tokyo cat cafe

I started off liking the HTC One. Now, having used it as my only camera while on holiday in Japan this past week, I'm in love with it. HTC has a whole lot riding on the One this year, and one of the more contentious features is the Zoe photography system, blending stills and short videos that are simultaneously captured in what the company says will "bring to life" your photo gallery. Attempts to differentiate from the gush of other Android devices with software customization is something we've seen so often now, it's hard not to be cynical (and simply demand "pure" Android instead), but Zoe has turned out to be a different story.

Weekend Watching: 1985 “Computer Chronicles” discusses the all-new Macintosh

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 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.

HTC One official: 4.7-inch Android with 4MP “UltraPixel” magic

HTC One official: 4.7-inch Android with 4MP “UltraPixel” magic

The HTC One is here, a new Android flagship wrapping the innovation we've known HTC for up in a sleek all-metal chassis with no compromise on specifications. A 4.7-inch Full HD smartphone packing a 1.7GHz quadcore Snapdragon 600 processor, beautiful crafting, and a slick new version of HTC Sense, it'll begin its global roll-out in March 2013. There are some quirks on the spec-sheet, though, not least the "UltraPixel" camera with its 4-megapixel-equivalent resolution but which, HTC insists, is far more suited to the sort of everyday photography common among most users, and the "Zoe" system which blends stills and videos. In short, it's the super-phone HTC is counting on to turn around its fortunes in 2013.
