HTC’s Latest – Good, but Good Enough?Posted: February 19, 2013
When it comes to smartphones lately, Samsung and Apple have sucked most of the air out of the room. Today, HTC showed their latest top line smartphone, the newest HTC One, and is tacking towards Apple in an effort to differentiate from Android rival Samsung. Most noticeable are the beautiful aluminum case, with obvious cues taken from the iPhone, and the great screen. Taking another page from Apple’s playbook, specs weren’t really highlighted…instead it’s Blinkfeed…which automatically live updates content feeds, as well as their Ultrapixel camera with better low light capability. The HTC One hits stores in March, just as Samsung rolls out the Galaxy S-4. Time and buyers will tell if it’s good enough to carve out some space for itself…something Nokia, Blackberry, and Microsoft are also all grappling with.
