What's This?

Manufacturers and smart phone makers are now very quick to throw new products out on the market, hoping that users and customers will not care as much about the hardware and build quality; software is one thing on the devices out today but a lot of manufacturers seems to have forgotten why people love the old Nokia and other handsets out there in the past years.

One of the reason handsets like Nokia 3310 will never be forgotten is because of the build quality, you paid for what you get.  HTC has gone back to the drawing board with a device that is built and enclosed in complete metal body giving it a complete premium feel.  You will have to hold it in person to fully appreciate the build quality and design, but we are yet to hear anyone or any website or blog say they dislike the design.  The antenna is built into the body which should improve phone reception, otherwise if you are somebody who struggles with mobile reception where you live or work why not get some 2 way radios from DCS2Way.

Now putting the design aside, there is the new features on the HTC One, they have taken each feature and built it to be as functional as possible for users, not just a gimmick that they can put down on paper; features such as HTC Zoe, Blinkfeed, Sense TV and the UltraPixel camera are features that are very useful and meets user’s needs.

From the moment you wake up in the morning, you can check latest news that is tailored to your needs and lifestyle using Blinkfeed, then when you finish reading, you can use Sense TV to flick on your set top-box and TV to watch your favourite TV show, then when you are ready for commuting, you can listen to hight quality sound thanks to boom sound using beats by dre sound system.  While you are out and about, if you spot something interesting, you have no need to worry about low lighting, ultrapixel has good pixel size to capture the best and appropriate amount of lighting needed.

The HTC One has definitely raised the bar high both in the design and functional ratings, it only means other competing manufacturers like Sony, LG, Samsung now need to raise their standards when it comes to build quality and functions that not only sings and dances on paper but also helps users improve their lives.
