If you're in the market for an iPhone-esque Android phone, the HTC One is sure to pique your interests. Coming soon to AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile, the HTC One is an incredibly designed smartphone, complete with a lot of metal and glass.
Under the hood, the HTC One is powered by a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor and sports a 4.7-inch 1080p HD display, 4-ultrapixel camera with HTC Zoe capabilities, 2,300 mAh non-removable battery, 32/64 GB of internal storage, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 5. If you thought ImageSense was good in the HTC One X/S/V days, the camera on the HTC One will be a nice upgrade. HTC Zoe is a fun new camera feature that allows the user to record three second video snippets for inclusion in a Zoe Share video, and BlinkFeed is a great feature for many demographics.
So far, the tech nerd crowd are jazzed up about the smartphone, but the real test in sales will come from mainstream consumers. Will it pick up traction on the three carriers, and can HTC market it effectively? Part 2 of 2.
