Well, I’ve had quite a good amount of hands-on time with the HTC One. I tested the HTC One on the Virgin Mobile network. The HTC One is based on Android and features a 4-megapixel camera with a 28mm lens that has a maximum aperture of f/2 and also features an optical image stabilizer. It also features a backside-illuminated sensor and a sensor size of 1/3 inch. It also offers 4.7 inch Full HD 1080p, 468 PPI touchscreen with Touch AF, 8fps burst shooting, a built-in flash, Geotagging, Full 1080P HD videos at 30fps, HDR mode for stills and videos.

The HTC One is large, but light. It weighs just 143g and measures at 137.4 x 68.2 x 9.3mm. It has stunning aesthetics that you’d want to protect with a case, even though it could probably stand a few good hits. This is a very sexy phone.

The HTC One also offers a solid 32 GB of built-in memory, with no external memory slot. I however think, 32 GB is loads for a 4MP camera and enough to store a good amount of music. The HTC one features a 1.7GHz quad core processor; 2300mAh battery; Android 4.1 with HTC Sense 5.

Audio sounds absolutely fantastic on the HTC One and battery life is absolutely phenomenal. Call quality was superb, better than anything I have ever witnessed in any review I have done on any mobile device. I strongly encourage you to get this phone if you are seeking an upgrade to your Android device. I will state now that I haven’t tried the Samsung Galaxy S4 yet, but from what I have tested so far, the HTC One knocks your socks off.

There is not anything else I can say but “Get this phone!” Overall: {rating}
