    Review HTC One

    This smartphone we waited for a long time, and today we have the opportunity to spend a few days in his company - HTC One - Taiwanese manufacturer's flagship smartphone. Full metal housing, ultrapikselnaya camera, next-generation display interface and new - here is a short description of what the new product offers. Let's get acquainted as soon as possible!

    Design and ergonomics

    Smartphone have dubbed almost the only alternative to plastic devices and the best device for a smooth transition from iOS to Android OS. Indeed, the ratio of metal to other materials, even more than the Apple iPhone 5, which could be described as the reason for buying it was the Taiwanese smartphone. The build quality of our sample, despite the fact that it is not shoplifting version, deserves the highest praise. But as tactile sensations, everything is not so simple. Metal housing more slippery, less practical, besides, it is very difficult to remove traces of dirt.

    The structure of the unibody-case is somewhat different from the one used in Windows Phone-smartphone Nokia, where there are only two separable parts - the body itself and the display with all the innards. In HTC One all about the same, except for the glue to keep the panels cover up the speakers. These same panels are also made of metal. A plurality of openings further diluted by the triple top, two of whom hold a proximity sensor and light sensor and front camera. Indicator events hidden from prying eyes under the net and is only visible when running.

    Display with a diagonal of 4.7-inch covered with tempered glass Gorilla Glass 2. The sides of the body have a small head, which should serve as an additional protection for the safety of the presentation front.

    Below the display is the manufacturer's logo on the sides of which are two touch buttons - "Back" and "Home." Press "Menu" no. In cases where this is necessary, it performs the role of a virtual network. At press "Home", in addition to the functions return to the main window of the desktop there are two more - call the Google Now (holding) and call Manager applications running (double click). In fact, except for the negative is that sometimes the actual resolution of the screen and a usable area slightly less than the stated, it is possible to limit and two keys. At the very least, they quickly get used to.

    Another feature of the unibody-case is that the solid part consists of several elements. It is clearly seen from the back side, which is divided into three parts. Go for a compromise forced the laws of physics - metal shields the signal. Therefore it was decided to build an antenna in a metal panel, which divided it into several fragments. Here, apart from antennas located camera, flash, microphone, and logos.

    Four core Krait processor 300 with a clock frequency of 1.7 GHz is paired with a video accelerator Adreno 320, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB or 64 GB of permanent storage. Demonstrated by the results of the performance level (somewhere above, somewhere below) Sony Xperia Z / ZL , Padfone2 Asus,Samsung Galaxy S4 (Exynos 5 Octa). Apparently, the time has come to achieve a significant increase in performance is getting harder and harder.
