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.

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 Life

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.

Techie Talk

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.

Dear HTC,
