HTC One

The HTC One is an all-aluminum smartphone powered by Google's Jelly Bean, or Android 4.2. The phone differentiates itself from existing smart phones by re-architecting the device around how ‘generation feed’ behaves, i.e. people who look down at their phones constantly, staying up to date on news and friends. HTC accomplishes this task with its BlinkFeed that streams live the user's favorite content such as newsfeed from social media accounts and news accounts onto single gridded home screen.

The HTC One has a large 4.7-inch, 1080p screen, which is flanked vertically by two speaker strips offering enhanced audio performance called Boomsound. The One is the first to introduce an ultrapixel camera producing image pixels twice the size of a megapixel. Ultrapixel lets in 300 percent more light so it's ideal for indoor pictures without the use of flash.

The device runs on a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor with 2GB of RAM so it's much faster compared to existing smart phones on the market.
