The HTC One is one of the best flagship handsets in the Kenyan Smartphone market. Its superb tech specs coupled with its stunning design makes the HTC One stand out from the horde of other Android devices.
The HTC One is like the only Android Smartphone that can closely match the iPhone 5S in terms of an awesome build quality and an intuitive design concept. Factors that made the HTC One rank high in the 2013 list of the best Smartphones money can buy.
Here is a quick review of the HTC One and best price in Kenya.
Dimensions: 137.4 x 68.2 x 9.3 mm
Weight: 143 g
One of the striking features about the HTC One is its stunning body design. A lot went into making the HTC One look and feel good. We are talking about approximately 200 minutes on a CNC machine time and a diamond cutter machine.
The video below (Courtesy of HTC) show just how much went into the creation of the HTC One.
Screen Size: 4.7 inches
Screen Resolution: 1080 x 1920 pixels
Screen Resolution Density: 469 ppi
Screen Protection: Corning Gorilla Glass 2
The HTC One display is just amazing. You will love the display so much that your new hobby will be gazing at it. We are talking of a screen resolution much higher than the iPhone 5S and the Sony Xperia Z1. Heck! The HTC One has a screen resolution density a couple units higher than that of the recently launched Samsung Galaxy S5.
CPU: Quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A15 & quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7
RAM: 2 GB
GPU: Adreno 320
Internal Memory: 32/64 GB storage
Card Slot: No
The HTC One runs Android OS, v4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) out of the box. It is, however, upgradable to v4. 4 (KitKat)
Rear Camera: 4 MP
Front Facing Camera: 2.1 MP
LED Flash: Yes
The HTC One has one of the smallest cameras in flagship devices in terms of Mega Pixel Size. Nevertheless, let that not fool you. Both the rear and front facing snappers capture amazing images and can record 1080p HD quality video.
In fact, the HTC One takes some of the best images in low light settings. It even beats the 8MP snapper found on the Nokia 920.
Battery Capacity: 2,300mAh
Although, not the largest battery capacity in a flagship device, the HTC One delivers a satisfactory battery life experience even on constant usage.
Tests confirm that you can squeeze out at least 9 hours of continuous usage on the device, e.g. Watching a Movie, Browsing, Listening to Music for nine continuous hours.
Tech Trends Diary Verdict
Why You Should Buy the HTC One
Stunning Build Quality
Amazing Display Experience
Powerful Tech Specs
High Image Quality in Low Light shooting
Cons of the Samsung Galaxy S4
Slightly Weak Battery [compared to competition]
Awkward Display Outlay [Sense 5 UI]
The HTC design team did an amazing job on the HTC One. I personally think the HTC One gives you an accurate showcase of how Android might look on an iPhone. HTC One is the first company to whip a recipe that gives the Android OS a premium appeal.
My jaw dropped when I first saw the HTC One. The YouTube video I embedded above shows you by how much HTC goes into the minute details. This is something that most Android Smartphone manufacturers take for granted.
