So far the One has been a good phone to live with.
The design and build quality is top notch, better looking than the iPhone 5 and build quality at least matching if not surpassing it. The One is quite a tall phone so it can be a stretch to reach the power button which is placed at the top of the phone, but the power button is placed there because it also functions as an IR blaster (in other words it functions as a remote control for your tele and cable box)
Its no secret that the HTC One is the phone of the moment, or at least the Android phone of the moment but with all the hype surrounding it comes a certain level of expectation.
I recently got the HTC One and over the next few days and weeks i’ll be posting updates on what the One is like to live with and if it lives up to the hype.
Stay tuned for more on the HTC One.
Earlier in the week HTC unveiled their new not so secret weapon to take on Samsung in 2013, the HTC One. As you can expect all the major networks will pick this up but if your in the Uk and you just have to the HTC One on a 4G network then you’ll need to get it on EE.
At the moment EE is the only network to provide UK residents with LTE and because of this you will be charged a premium for the service. £31 a month will get you a poultry 500MB which will last you all of a day but you also get unlimited texts and minutes but you will have to cough up a one off payment of £240 for the phone. If your willing to pay £46, £51, £56 or £61 a month your data allowance will be increased to 3GB, 5GB, 8GB and 20GB per month respectively and you will get your one off payment knocked down to £30.
No firm release date has been given for the HTC One but we’re anticipating a release around mid-March.
HTC have just added another phone to their 2012 One lineup, and this time it’s the HTC One SV. The successor to the One S phone comes with 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 soc, 5 megapixel camera, 480 x 800 Super LCD 2 display and NFC. Unlike recent HTC phones the One SV will support expandable storage via microSD and will have a removable battery. Unfortunately it will be running Ice Cream Sandwich which is a shame but when it’s released in the UK in the coming weeks it will have support for LTE so even though no networks were mentioned its safe to assume EE will be picking up this handset.
HTC are about to refresh its current flagship phone for its One line, with the HTC One X+.
The design of the One X+ is identical to the current One X so don’t expect any change there. Where you will find changes is in the internals, the One X+ bumps up the quad-core processor to 1.7GHz and the storage is also boosted to 64GB.
Jelly Bean will be making appearance out of the box and 25GB of free cloud storage will be provided by Dropbox.
Before the end of the year HTC and the UK carrier O2 will release a phone that doesn’t come with a charger in the box.
The phone that will ship without a charger hasn’t been named yet but it will come with a USB to Micro USB cable.
With all the phones sold in the UK, O2 say that 70% of customers already have the relevant charger for their handset.
The 8X will run Microsoft’s, latest mobile phone operating system Windows Phone 8 and at first glance it literally looks likes its got a lot going for it
From what we can tell it looks like HTC will be the next Android OEM to release a phone that sits in the 5-inch display size category. As the name suggests it will placed in HTC’s One line of phones which includes the One X, One S and One V. The One X 5 could be the first screen on a phone to hit the 1080p mark and it could feature Qualcomm’s new quad-core S4 pro CPU.
