Hands-On: HTC One

Posted:  February 24, 2013   By:    19 comments   

The HTC One is the latest superphone to come from HTC and it doesn’t disappoint. From its exquisitely crafted, seamless all-metal construction to the gorgeous 1080p display with Gorilla Glass, the unique UltraPixel camera and the dual front-facing speakers, the HTC One is probably the best smartphone you can get right now.

The HTC One is a phone you want to hold in your hand and its no wonder considering that it takes 150 minutes to make a single all-metal body out of a single piece of Aluminium — yes, just the body alone takes more time to make than most manufacturers spend on making a full smartphones.

The HTC One is also the best sounding smartphone we’ve ever heard thanks to the dual front-facing speakers and dedicated hardware amplifier. The speakers produce rich, clear and loud sound with minimal distortion. The device is proper high end with features that users will really appreciate when using the device daily. Check out our hands-on video to see what we think of HTC’s latest and greatest.

Can you turn off the blinkfeed?

    Cool Guy

    Nope, but you can change the default homescreen if you don't want to look at it. It's not a big deal. It's a pretty cool feature to have either way.


estimated price?


Rm 2299


Awesome hands on review from SoyaCincau… Can't wait full review of this beast from you guys.


Thanks for the vid! MY ONLY CONCERN………………..HOW'S BATTERY LIFE????????????????


    according to GSMARENA's battery life, HTC ONE has almost the same battery life with SGS 4


the battery life should be better than htc butterfly (smaller screen , higher cpu performance with lower power consumption ). from the design , it's not hard to drastically increase the battery size (bear in mind the battery of htc butterfly is as thin as a credit card. if they increase the size of battery by 0.5-1 mm, capacity should greatly increased. )


From what i read from other websites, blinkfeed cannot be turned off. You can only disable the "stuff" in the blinkfeed in the blinkfeed settings. Blinkfeed is like Windows Phone live tiles + Sony Ericsson Timescape. HTC One lack some originality. Mostly copied from other manufacturers such as design and softwares. I'm still waiting for HTC M4.


    You can change the home screen you want! No need to be blink feed!


It should be illegal what HTC did to android…


what was used to make the video? no autofocus? pissing me off with the blurriness


So u have seen and tested both htc one and xperia z. Which one would you recommend?


i still don't see much review about xperia z & butterfly .. however HTC one already got the better review now..
i only know xperia z can swim.. a lot of questions still not answered. so nothing more interesting to review from SC?


so sad, no 64g coming to malaysia?



can you do a side by side with HTC Butterfly?

most interested to know how does it fit to hand and feels and one handed usage compare to the Butterfly.

butterfly is not so small hand friendly as its hard to grab with its thin and fragile feel.


The level of English proficiency here is a joke.
