The latest flagship device from HTC comes with the 4.7-inch Super LCD 3 screen with full HD resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. Doing the math, the display has got a pixel density figure of a whopping 468 pixels, which makes it perhaps the best display in the segment. The screen on the HTC One is so far the best one according to me and that’s one of the strongest points that will help the device sell better.
2. Processing Power
HTC one is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor unit that works in conjunction with the Adreno 320 GPU. The processor is clocked at 1.7 GHz and is a quad-core processor, and it has crushed benchmarks. According to the reports, the Snapdragon 600 would perform 40 percent better its predecessor, Snapdragon S4 Pro. We still don’t know how many apps are optimized enough to make the processor noticeably faster than the competition in real life usage, but it does have the power.
Apart from the screen, what makes HTC One stand out of the crowd is the dual front stereo speakers. We have so many smartphones currently available in the market with puny speakers, but the speakers on the HTC flagship are pretty loud and clear at the same time. It’s an HTC product, and since HTC has got stakes in Beats audio, the smartphone gets the Beats audio branding as well. The placement of speakers on the face of the smartphone ensures that sound does not get muffled when the phone is resting on a surface.
HTC devices are always known to have a hump at the rear for the camera unit, which is also prone to scratches. With the latest HTC One, the designers of the phone have solved the problem and the camera unit is safe from getting damaged.
All the smartphone manufacturers are participating in the megapixel race, whereas it is a well established fact that higher megapixels doesn’t lead to better quality. HTC believes Megapixel business is a thing from the past and has moved on to Ultrapixels now.
“The pain point we really wanted to focus on is: Do we really want to be honest with consumers and give them the best possible photography experience, or do we do what the entire market has been doing for years on end,” Chris Park, a product marketing manager at HTC, told Mashable. “UltraPixel refers to the fact that pixel size is more important than total number of pixels.”
According to the company, the output image will be a mere 4-megapixel picture, but it will be much better when compared to competition’s camera with higher megapixels. The pixels on the HTC One are of 2.0 microns, which means each pixel gets 300% more light than the 8 megapixel normal camera units, and as a result the final image will be of better quality and photo will be captured with more precision.
