New HTC One Review

The Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer, HTC had just unveiled its latest bet in the crowded segment with the “all-new” HTC One.

If you’re familiar or currently owning the previous/current model of HTC One then we’ll assume that you fell inlove with its sleek in and out design —-that’s obviously made even better for the latest flagship. It’s now made with 90-percent aluminum unibody chassis which is considerably far from the 70-percent parts of its previous model and it’s directly constitute to added weight of half an ounce. But you can absolutely trade it off from its sleek and curvacious design that’s perfectly tuned with its spacious 5-inch display. You can expect same quality of display as it’s still fitted with a 1080p S-LCD3 which is known for its bright colors and deep blacks. And it’s also ruggedly protected with a Gorilla Glass 3. One more thing, you’d be missing the capacitive buttons from the previous model as it’s now been replaced by standard Android keys. Furthermore, it’ll also feature two curious looking rear camera sensors and enhanced HTC Sense UI.
