HTCOne

The HTC One is a high-end touchscreen-based Android smartphone designed, developed, and manufactured by HTC. It was unveiled as HTC’s flagship smartphone for 2013 on 19 February, at press events in New York City and London. It is the successor to the company’s 2012 flagship model, the One X—which was critically acclaimed, but commercially unsuccessful due in part to insufficient marketing efforts.

To make the device stand out among its competition, the HTC One was developed with a major emphasis on unique hardware and software features, these included a unibody aluminum frame, a 1080p full-HD display, dual front-facing stereo speakers, and a camera with a custom image sensor. It has the ability to automatically generate montages of media, an updated version of HTC’s Sense user experience, BlinkFeed—an aggregator of news and social network content. There is an interactive programme guide app with the ability to serve as a remote control via an IR blaster located in the power button.The phone costs about Shs2.5m.
