Earlier this week, the HTC One was unveiled after months of rumours and speculations made about the device. The phone has already received praise from critics and garnered huge levels of interest from buyers.
It is no secret that HTC is currently struggling in terms of fighting with companies like Apple and Samsung in the mobile market. The Taiwan-based company has certainly taken a step in the right direction with the release the HTC One, as it looks sure to be one of the most successful devices of the year. The HTC One, being the Android flagship device is deserving of all the commendations it got especially because of its high-end specs. For instance, the phone sports a 4.7 display with 1080p resolution. It actually has a higher pixel density than any other device, as most with this resolution utilise a larger 5 inch screen. The camera has 4 megapixels, which initially sounds unimpressive, but because it makes use of the new technology called ‘Ultra Pixel’, the camera has the capacity to produce outstanding image quality. The phone is also installed with Android Jellybean, a 1.7 GHZ quad-core processor, and the latest HTC Sense 5 UI.
The phone was only unveiled some days ago but it is already available from many UK retailers for pre-order (see the details at GSM Arena). Major network providers have also made their confirmations that they will be carrying the device. Pricing for the phone was also unveiled recently, with the 16GB version available for £510. This may not be cheap for many, but given the amazing features of the device, its pricing is understandable given its high end features. Besides, the phone is actually cheaper than the iPhone 5. Pay monthly contracts for the HTC One from Vodafone start at £33.00 each month, with an upfront payment of £99.00 for the device. Orange however, is carrying the device for only £36 per month, and asking for no fees for the device. Both contracts from Orange and Vodafone are based on the 24-month agreement period.

While the HTC One will have to battle with big rivals such as the iPhone 5, Sony Xperia Z, Samsung Galaxy S4, and Nokia Lumia 920, the device still looks set to be a popular choice on account of its impressive features, stunning design and construction, and the fact that it has been launched ahead of many upcoming handsets from rival manufacturers.
