Early Reviews Praise the New HTC One

After being named “Best Smartphone” and “Best in Show” at Mobile World Congress, the new HTC One is earning accolades from media around the world; like Vincent Nguyen of Slashgear who calls the phone “Stunning,” and Brent Rose of Gizmodo who says “astonishment leads into awe.”

Read below for a deeper look at what these reviews – from industry experts like BGR, Engadget,Tech Radar and more – say about BlinkFeed, BoomSound, and the new Ultrapixel camera with Zoe. We think you’ll agree the new HTC One is “the best phone on the market.”



“I had the HTC One with me during my hands on time, and the difference is like night and day. For starters, the One is noticeably faster in every context.”

Brent Rose, Gizmodo (Full Article)

“The appeal of the HTC One is not only that it’s built so well (leagues ahead, we must say, than the in-hand-feel of the GALAXY S 4) but that it focuses on doing a couple of things particularly well..”

Vincent Nguyen, SlashGear (Full Article)

“It’s still not on the same level of a phone like the solidly constructed HTC One.”

Adrian Covert, CNNMoney (Full Article)

“The beautiful 1080p 4.7 inch display, the front-facing dual stereo speakers, the revolutionary UltraPixel camera and other unique features are to be reckoned with, and the latest facelift to HTC Sense with BlinkFeed and a fresh user interface make the HTC One a sure winner.”

Quentyn Kennemer, Phandroid (Full Article)

“The HTC One is the best phone that HTC has made. The design, the refreshes made to HTC Sense, and the power on offer make this amongst the best that Android has on offer.”

Chris Hall, Pocket-lint (Full Review)

“This is the best HTC phone ever, without a doubt. But we’ll go one better than that: it’s the best phone on the market full stop.”

Gareth Beavis, Tech Radar (Full Review)

“We’re smitten with the One’s gorgeous industrial design and premium build.”

Brad Molen, Engadget (Full Review)

“A beautiful handset with an amazing screen and innovative camera – an Ultimate smartphone.”

Chris Finnamore, Expert Reviews (Full Review)

“This is absolutely one of the best smartphones ever built. The metal case is gorgeous and the design is so sleek that it’s difficult to put into words.”

Zach Epstein, BGR (Full Review)

“There’s no doubt that the HTC One is a world-class piece of hardware. It completely outclasses anything Samsung has made in the last 24 months, and equals the Apple iPhone 5 in the quality of the hardware. In fact, in many ways, the HTC One Surpasses the iPhone 5.”

Eric Zeman, InformationWeek (Full Review)

“The One is a top-notch, beautifully designed handset packed with the best specs and a ton of compelling features.”

Nathan Olivarez-Giles, WIRED (Full Review)

“HTC One looks like it will claim the mantle of best Android phone on the market.”

Jamie Lendio, PCMag (Full Review)

“HTC One wows with stunning design, premium parts.”

CNET (Full Review)

“Stunning. The HTC One makes a compelling argument for being the best-made Android phone we can recall…”

    We know how great this phone is. The press knows. Now we need to get all the sheep to know. Marketing, guys, please. Your fans beg you – save yourselves, and market this device well to let the rest of the world know that it IS, objectively, the best phone One can buy right now.

  • clifford brooks

    Stunning device, but please be successful on marketing, too. HTC One deserves to be popular than the others.

    I am begging that you aggressively market this phone from all corners of the globe. its not enough that the media alone sees what an excellent product this phone is but it would be great for the rest of the world to feel the experience. Do whatever it takes Htc, hire the best, spend on the best, just make it work. Would be awesome to see you guys take market share, this is your One shot- take it!

    Many people at taiwan has been telling me that girls/women tend to favor bigger size phone , such as Samsung note 2. However, it seems to me that those are just excuses. We tend to favorite other brand rather than our local brand. I saw HTC’s improvement. HTC learn from their mistakes. HTC butterfly light up my life. I believe the New HTC One will continue stunned and satisfy the consumer’s needs. HTC, great job, i hope HTC can continously keep up with the hard work. Learn to appreciate your employees and i believe you might become Number 1 in the market

  • Nishant Mishra

    i am confused between going for HTC One or S4….my only issues with HTC are:
    1) Battery life – every review i read says HTC has once again failed to improve battery life performance. Is this true?
    2) Android updates – I would like to know if HTC rolls out updates regularly for Android, like Samsung does.
    People need your help on this one – HTC users / X-users…cmon…am i being paranoid or is there some truth to these issues?…
