Hands-On With the HTC One

I’ve long maintained that HTC is the only Android phone maker that actually cares about design. Part of it is because they cop quite a lot from Apple (I guess they’re trying to get their money’s worth), but there are some genuinely clever ideas here. The “Blink” home screen feed is a very clever take on what a home screen can be, and the “Zoe” camera mode.1

It’s a fairly massive phone, but it’s the best Android phone you will be able to buy. Probably.
