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.

Samsung GALAXY S 4 vs HTC One

Samsung GALAXY S 4 vs HTC One

Now that the Samsung GALAXY S 4 has been revealed officially and the HTC One is out in reviewers' hands, it's time to do the first big battle royal between the two. With the GALAXY S 4 you've got Samsung's continuation of a legacy with a device that looks rather similar to the Samsung Galaxy S III, not to mention the Galaxy Note devices that've been revealed in the time since the smartphone's last iteration's reveal. With the HTC One we've got what appears to be more of an utter re-vamp of the company's wares from top to bottom - which approach suits you best?

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 mid-ranged phones will have Blinkfeed and Ultrapixels too

HTC mid-ranged phones will have Blinkfeed and Ultrapixels too

It looks like a couple of the HTC One's flagship features will also be finding their way to HTC's future mid-ranged devices. Phil Roberson, the head of HTC UK and Ireland, stated that HTC's Blinkfeed and Ultrapixel services will be available for as many of its devices as possible. He says, "Wherever the technology is possible, we're looking to take as much of the technology and enrich all of our customers."

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 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.

HTC Sense 5 leaks with pared-back aesthetic for 2013

HTC Sense 5 leaks with pared-back aesthetic for 2013

HTC's hardware plans for 2013 have been leaking for some time now, with the 1080p HTC M7 expected to officially drop next month, but a new batch of screenshots suggest the company's HTC Sense interface is also in for a refresh. Less fussy, crisper, and generally shedding some of the "unnecessary design" of previous iterations, HTC Sense 5 is put a greater emphasis on typefaces and 2D iconography, according to the leaked screenshots shared by xda-developers' mdeejay.
