"The most beautiful phone you can buy. It is 'The ONE'!"  By ANVIT GERA on August 23, 2013

Technology is the fastest changing variable in today's world. A rich man would buy a Porche or a Ferrari, but he will always have a 1967 Ford Mustang in his garage which defines the term 'Classic', 'Tech that created history'. Well, HTC here, has made something of that sort. The HTC One is the phone that you would like to keep for years as a part of your gadget collection. It is by far the most beautiful phone ever made available to a general consumer (Vertus not being taken into consideration)

Built: Made up of one block of Aluminium with zero gaps, it gives you a premium feel in hand everytime you pick up the phone. Trust me, you wouldn't want to buy a case for it. It definitely puts Apple to shame when it comes to build quality, and Samsung looks like a handmade plastic toy.

Display:It has a gorgeous 4.7inch full HD 1080pixel screen with amazing colors. Media on this phone is an absolute delight.

Processor:No lag whatsoever, thanks to the 1.7Ghz Quadcore snapdragon 600 CPU. Everything is blazing fast. One major complaint, the phone gets really hot while playing games or using heavy apps.

Sense5: Although I don't find blinkfeed very useful, it still complements the amazing screen with its beautiful tiles and upward flow. The interface is easy to use. 

Camera: Controversial 4ultrapixel camera would not dissapoint you at all. It has a wideframe and captures beautiful photos and videos. HTC Zoe is the feature to look out for. It can really make your gallery come to life. It automatically creates highlight movies of photos taken at an event. 

Sound: HTC BoomSound with stereo speakers coupled with Beats Audio can make you phone sound like a home theatre system. Its loud, crisp and clear. The front facing speakers also help during loudspeaker calls. 

Battery-Average battery life. Hardly makes it through a day. It takes a long time to charge. 

It still is the most desired phone today especially after Mr.Tony Stark started advertising the brand. If you like Apple/Samsung, its time to #HTChange!

Display 5/5
Battery Life 3/5
Apps & Media Support 5/5
Reception & Call Quality 5/5
Design/Form Factor 5/5

Overall 4.6
