Enter the HTC One, the new flagship from the Taiwanese giant. The One packs a quad-core Snapdragon 600 with options on 32 and 64GB of internal storage 2GB of RAM and a 4.7 inch display providing full HD 1080p, 468 PPI, making it the top of the dog in the smartphone battlefield.
HTC has seen its share get smaller with time in the smartphone world, not only fighting the IPhones, Windows phones and Blackberries of the world, but fighting inside the Android ecosystem trailing Samsung and losing ground to LG and the other manufacturers.
The HTC One raises the bar of Android phones build quality with its aluminum body, getting away from the plastic that give most Android devices a cheap feel.
There are two features that are sure to get the most talk: HTC BlinkFeed and the HTC UltraPixel Camera. BlinkFeed is like a blend of the tiles from Windows phone 8 and Flipboard, where you get a feed from your social networks and news pages. The One has a 4 megapixel camera that HTC is calling UltraPixel, referring to the fact that it captures more light and delivers better low light pictures.
The HTC One is set to be priced at $200 for the 32GB version and it will be available in March in the US through AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint.
