I believe by now most of the gadgets enthusiasts have seen the HTC ONE Launch Event, if you lived under a rock here it is the video from the event:
As you may know, I had my fair share of disappointments with HTC, and I’m still skeptic about their last year flagship update policy. Word is the ONE X and ONE X+ will get the Sense 5 update, and if this is true I believe HTC changed their update policy which is only GOOD. This way if I buy the HTC ONE it won’t be obsolete in half a year (like it happened with Sensation)
Specs and marketing aside, the HTC ONE looks amazing, I think is the best built, best looking HTC so far. Performance wise is an improvement over the X+, not by much but it is. Again word is that the Snapdragon S600 is more friendly with battery than Tegra’s AP37 ( the chipset from X+), that in combination with a 2300 mAH battery (vs. 2100 from X+) should give a decent run on a charge.
I won’t go into the Ultrapixel stuff, stereo speakers, because i couldn’t care less about taking DSLR grade pictures (for those who still hope, IT AIN’T possible) with my phone nor about throwing a party with my phone’s speakers .
Software wise, oh well I’m pretty sure in time we will be able to port Sense 5 to X / X+ if HTC feels is nice NOT to update.
All things aside, I would GET the HTC ONE. Why? Because it looks awesome, and the performance bump and supposedly better battery life makes the upgrade worthwhile.
What about you? You droll over the HTC One? or you wait to see what competition has to offer before making up your mind. Drop a line or two in a comment below
