HTC One Vs HTC One X+ Vs HTC One S: And The Best HTC Phone To Invest In Is…

HTC has been around for a while, and even though Samsung pretty much stole its thunder last year with its ever popular Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2, if you’re an avid HTC fan, here are a few of the best HTC phones out in the market now that you can pick from:

HTC One: HTC’s flagship smartphone for 2013 looks amazing and works even better. With an all-metal body giving it a slick and expensive look, it sure can be love at first sight for you when you glance at the HTC One. The phone has a 4.7-inch full HD display with a resolution of 468 ppi and is powered by a quad-core 1.7 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM. But the best part about the phone has got to be its rear camera with HTC’s Ultrapixels technology to give you an amazing photography experience, right in your smartphone!

HTC One X+: Now, HTC may have ended up confusing a lot of its loyal customers last year by launching so many flagship smartphones, but the upgraded One X+ sure is a good buy. It runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with a Sense 4+ UI overlay, is powered by a quad-core processor and has a lovely HD display. And then there’s the 32 GB of internal storage which makes it even more attractive.

HTC One S: For those of you who are budget conscious, the HTC One S makes for a sound buy. It’s got a decent Super AMOLED 4.3-inch screen and is powered by a dual-core processor and 1 GB of RAM. An 8 MP rear camera is more than enough to satisfy the shutterbug in you. The only drawback – just 16 GB of internal storage and no microSD card support. But at least it’s an affordable smartphone!… Read the rest

Samsung Galaxy S4 Vs HTC One Vs LG Optimus G Pro Vs Sony Xperia Z: The Cream Of 2013 Is Ready To Get Licked

Now that Android Jelly Bean has become pretty much a standard offering in all the current Android-based smartphones, and we’ve got a long-ish wait until Google unveils the next version of Android, Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, we decided to keep ourselves busy by comparing the current hottest Android phones available in the market. So here’s the list of phones you need to really take a look at:

HTC One: It’s got two strengths – it’s got the highest resolution of 468 ppi on its full-HD 4.7-inch screen, and there’s an Ultrapixels camera which lets users take really sharp and clear pictures. If there’s more reasons you’re looking for to pick up an HTC One, it comes with Android Jelly Bean with an overlay of HTC’s improved Sense 5.0 UI to give you a smoother, slicker Android. And there’s an all-metal sleek casing to make this one of the best looking Android smartphones out in the market.

Samsung Galaxy S4: It’s Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone – need we say more! But brand aside, this 5-inch wonder packs quite a punch. One of its versions will be powered by Samsung’s very own 8-core Exynos 5 processor while the other comes with a quad-core 1.9 GHz processor – both these versions are among the most powerful smartphones in the market currently. And then there’s a ton of advanced features like eye tracking and floating touch to make life much simpler for you. Also, its 13 MP rear camera has lots of effects and filters too to keep the shutterbugs extremely happy.

Sony Xperia Z: By now, you pretty much know its USP – it is dust and water resistant. Wouldn’t you love a smartphone that’s nearly almost damage-proof? Dig a little deeper and you get a 5-inch full HD screen powered by Sony’s own Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 to give you a much better viewing experience. And then there’s the 13.1 MP rear camera with Sony’s Exmos RS sensor to make this a photo-lovers’ treat too!

LG Optimus G Pro: LG’s flagship smartphone’s got a 5.5-inch screen, so if you’re looking for a large phone, this one’s your pick! In addition, there’s a quad-core 1.7 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM, and a 13 MP rear camera to make this an extremely desirable smartphone.

Samsung galaxy S4 Vs Sony Xperia Z Vs HTC One Vs LG Optimus G Pro: The Winning Horses Of Flagship Derby

Yes, we know it sounds rather too early in the year to come up with a ‘best of 2013’ feature, but given the sheer number of devices already launched, we just couldn’t wait any longer. We decided to bring you a list of some of the best smartphones that have already been launched since January 2013, and let’s just say, those of you planning to pick up a smartphone this year are indeed lucky to have this much of a choice:

Sony Xperia Z: We’re going to start with this one not just because it’s fabulous, but also because it was one of the first few amazing devices launched in 2013. Dust and water resistant, it sports a 5-inch full HD display and is powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM. It’s really sleek and we love its 13.1 MP rear camera with the Sony Exmos RS sensor. There’s also a 2,300 mAh battery to give it quite a long life.

LG Optimus G Pro: This is definitely the largest device in this category with its 5.5-inch display with a 1080X1920 pixel resolution. It’s more powerful than the Xperia Z with its quad-core 1.7 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM, and sports a mammoth 3,140 mAh battery. In terms of camera though, its 13 MP rear camera is comparable with that of the others featured here.

BlackBerry Z10: The revamped BlackBerry experience was also unveiled this year, and boy, were we impressed! It lost all its boring interface and looks all ready to take on the likes on iOS and Android, promising users not just more features to enhance their work lives but also offering a better balance with personal lives. Its 4.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1280X768 pixels may seem smaller than the others in this league, but it’s powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM. An 8 MP rear camera makes it a pretty decent shooter too.

Samsung Galaxy S4: Samsung unveiled its latest flagship smartphone very recently after months of speculation. The Galaxy S4 has a 5-inch full HD screen with a resolution of 441 ppi and comes in two versions – one with Samsung’s own 8-core Exynos 5 processor and another with a quad-core 1.9 GHz processor. Both of these versions have 2 GB of RAM, making this one of the most powerful phones out in the market yet. There’s a 13 MP rear camera with a lot of new camera features as well to keep the shutterbugs happy.

HTC One: HTC unveiled quite a pleasant surprise with its HTC One flagship smartphone. Sporting a 4.7-inch full HD screen with a very high resolution of 468 ppi, it’s powered by a quad-core 1.7 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM. What makes this phone even more exciting is the Ultrapixels camera offering more true-to-life captures.

So, which of these are you planning to make your next purchase?… Read the rest

HTC One Vs Samsung Galaxy S3 Vs LG Nexus 4: Does iIt Make Sense To Lust After The Latest Android Phone?

The HTC One was showcased a few weeks ago and yes, we are impressed. But for those of you looking to pick up a good Android-based smartphone in the near future, does it make sense to hold off your purchase until it hits the market? Or should you end up picking the current market faves like Galaxy S3 or the Nexus 4? Read on to get your answer:

HTC One: HTC’s flagship smartphone for 2013 features a 4.7-inch full HD display with the highest resolution so far of 468 ppi. But there’s much more going on in this phone with its all metal slick body. HTC has also put in an interesting camera with its own Ultrapixels technology to let you click sharper, better pictures with more realistic color reproduction. And then there’s the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with an overlay of HTC’s vastly improved Sense 5.0 UI. The HTC One is powered by a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon Krait processor and 2 GB of RAM. It comes with 32 GB of internal storage, but we doubt if there’s a microSD card slot on it, and there’s also a 2,300 mAh battery fitted.

Samsung Galaxy S3: This phone went on to become the world’s favorite smartphone in 2012 and propelled Samsung into becoming the world leader in smartphones. The Galaxy S3 has a slightly bigger 4.8-inch screen, but in terms of resolution, its 306 ppi screen is no match for the HTC One’s. Powered by a quad-core 1.4 GHz Exynos 4412 processor and 1 GB of RAM, you will find it less powerful than the HTC One too. But yes, the phone comes with 16 GB, 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage as well as the provision to expand its storage capacity using microSD cards, which is indeed a huge plus. The 8 MP rear camera probably doesn’t work as well as the HTC One’s Ultrapixels offering. The Galaxy S3 is fitted with a 2,100 mAh battery offering over 11 hours of talktime.

LG Nexus 4: The Google flagship smartphone by LG sports a 4.7-inch screen with a 318 ppi resolution. Powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon Krait processor and 2 GB of RAM, it sure is more powerful than the Galaxy S3. In terms of camera, its 8 MP camera gives it equal footing with the Samsung offering. The LG Nexus 4 runs on Android 4.2 and is upgradeable up Android 4.2.2. But it comes with just 8 GB of 16 GB of internal storage and lacks a microSD card slot, so if you need more storage, you’re better off picking some other phone. Like the Galaxy S3, this one too has a 2,100 mAh battery offering about 15 hours of talktime.

HTC One Vs LG Optimus G Pro Vs Nokia Lumia 920: Does The Windows 8 Phone Still Hold Its Charm?

With the launch of its lineup of Windows Phone 8 based phones, Nokia was just about starting to taste some success in the highly competitive smartphone market. But, even though its flagship Lumia 920 was quite well received, would the recent launches of Android smartphones like LG’s Optimus G Pro and HTC’s One put a spoke in its ride to the top?

HTC One: The most recently launched among the 3, HTC’s latest flagship sure does sound spectacular. Even though it has a relatively smaller 4.7-inch screen, its resolution of 468 ppi is the higher so far in the market. Add to that its powerful quad-core 1.7 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM which help the phone run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with HTC’s improved Sense 5.0 UI, and you get even more impressed. And this is after you click on the phone – even its first glimpse is attractive. You can’t help but admire its all metal slick looking exterior. And then there’s the Ultrapixels camera – a unique HTC technology which promises truer photographic capabilities. Of course, there’s also a 2.1 MP front-facing camera to make video calls. HTC has put in a non-removable 2,330 mAh battery to power the phone.

LG Optimus G Pro: LG showcased its latest flagship just a short while before the HTC One was unveiled, and we can see just how desperate it is to regain precious market share lost to Samsung. This one’s a massive phone – its 5.5-inch display does remind you of the Samsung Galaxy Note phablets, but it has a higher resolution of 401 ppi. Running on Android 4.1.2, it is powered by a quad-core 1.7 GHz processor and 2 GB of RAM. So, on the inside, it’s quite similar to the HTC One. But there’s a 13 MP rear camera and a 2.1 MP front-facing camera. A massive 3,140 mAh battery surely promises a long life to the Optimus G Pro.

Nokia Lumia 920: Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone 8 based smartphone sports a smaller 4.5-inch display with a ppi count of 352 – it’s not the best viewing experience among the three for sure. But the phone does come in quirky colors, making it an attractive option for those who love vibrancy in their lives. Windows Phone 8 is a far better OS experience than its predecessor, but the number of apps is far less than that it Android or iOS. The Lumia 920 is powered by a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM, making it less powerful than the other two phones. The 8 MP rear camera comes with Carl Zeiss optics and dual-LED flash and the front-facing camera a resolution of 1.3 MP. The 2,000 mAh battery promises a talktime of around 10 hours on 3G, but we’re sure the HTC One and LG Optimus G Pro are more power efficient.

HTC One Vs Sony Xperia Z Vs Apple iPhone 5: Is The New Samsung Galaxy S4 Alluring You Or Would Choose These?

The Apple iPhone 5 has been around for a few months now, and while the phone failed to make a huge impression in the market, to make things worse, 2013 has already seen a number of superb flagship smartphone launches (the biggest one till now is Samsung galaxy S4). If you have the moolah for it and are considering the iPhone 5 as your next phone, do you think you should wait a while and look around in the market a little more? Maybe consider the HTC One or the Sony Xperia Z as alternatives?

HTC One: HTC’s flagship smartphone was finally unveiled after a lot of speculation just a few weeks ago and we like what we’ve seen so far. For those of you who love the iPhone’s all-metal premium look, the HTC One will definitely appeal to you. With a large 4.7-inch display having a resolution of 468 ppi, you can’t get better viewing on a smartphone currently. The HTC One is powered by a quad-core 1.7 GHz Krait processor and 2 GB of RAM and runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. It’s got a unique camera with HTC’s very own Ultrapixels camera which promises sharper, clearer and more natural looking images. For video calling, there’s a 2 MP camera as well. Choose from 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage, but that’s all you get because there doesn’t seem to be microSD card slot on this phone. To keep the phone running, HTC has put in a 2,300 mAh battery.

Sony Xperia Z: Sony’s gorgeous flagship smartphone was unveiled at CES 2013 and literally blew us all away. We love that it’s dust and water resistant – high end smartphones do not get more rugged than this, not yet at least. The Xperia Z features a large 5-inch display with a resolution of 441 ppi and is powered by a quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor and 2 GB of RAM. This phone also runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and is fitted with a 13 MP rear camera with Sony’s own Exmos RS sensor. There’s a 2.2 MP camera in the front as well. The Xperia Z comes with just 16 GB of internal storage, but for those of you who want more, you can use a microSD card. A 2,330 mAh battery keeps the phone up and running for nearly 14 hours on a single charge.

Apple iPhone 5: The latest iPhone’s biggest weakness is its rather small 4-inch screen with a resolution of 326 ppi. The iPhone 5 is powered by Apple’s A6 dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM and runs on iOS 6. An 8 MP rear camera and 1.2 MP front-facing camera also seem to pale with that of the HTC One and Sony Xperia Z. You can choose from 16 GB, 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage, but there’s no provision for further memory expansion through microSD cards. Even the 1,440 mAh battery offers a talktime of just about 8 hours on the phone, which means you’ll be reaching for the charger more often.… Read the rest

Pixel War Of the Giants—HTC One,Sony Xperia z,Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S4 Take Me For A Ride

When my wallet gets lighter with a new smartphone buy, I do weigh the camera story the buy comes with. However, this time I had to weigh HTC One, Google Nexus, Nokia Lumia 920, Samsung Galaxy S III, Apple iPhone 5 and the Sony Xperia Z—yes, heave a sigh-the list is over! Weigh them? Actually, I needed to weigh the camera story for each.

  • For starters, in an age that promises 13-MP cameras on smartphone users, HTC One has bucked the trend to house a mere 4.3-MP shutter. The quality is just fair but the high point is that smaller pictures could be wonderful with the One. Pegged against the giants that come with awesome shutter pixels, this might not go far.
  • Check out the rest for clicks with each of these smarties. The settings were automatic on all phones and night mode for shoots for non-light conditions.HTC loses out even before we begin the tests because of its hazy picture.
  • Nokia is noisy and the pictures hardly flesh out sharply enough.
  • I barely found the Samsung and Apple cameras doing anything different. The noise was not too much yet the picture came out well detailed.
  • I hoped for Xperia Z’s Exmor R tag to work miracles but it did a good job without a capital G. Though it gave distinct images, yet the smudgy factor remained.
  • The Nexus 4 seemed a tad disappointing even in broad day light; the noise was as irritating as loud bangs would. However, it surprised me with the fine details!

For dessert, here is the rank:

Apple iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S III, Nexus 4

Nokia Lumia 920, Sony Xperia Z… Read the rest

The HTC One comes with HTC’s Ultrapixels camera, which allows users to click sharper images with better color reproduction. The front-facing camera has a resolution of 2.1 MP.

HTC One: This one’s the most recent phone to be launched, and the best thing about it is its amazing resolution of 468 ppi. While its 4.7-inch display is the smallest among the three phones, no other phone even comes close to its ppi count, giving it a very strong advantage in this competitive segment. The HTC One is one hell of a good looking device, with its all aluminum casing spelling classy. It’s powered by a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor and 2 GB of RAM. Another unique feature in the HTC One is the Ultrapixels camera, which promises better color reproduction, sharper and clearer images. This one’s sure to be a hit among the shutterbugs!

LG Optimus G Pro: LG looks all geared up to take on Samsung at the smartphone arena.

It’s also powered by a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor and 2 GB of RAM, so in terms of processing power, it’s quite similar to the HTC One. The Optimus G Pro comes with 32 GB of internal storage space and a jumbo 3,140 mAh battery to keep it up and running for a long time. When it comes to camera, go crazy clicking photos with its 13 MP rear camera and 2.1 MP front-facing camera. We also love that this phone comes with a microSD card slot to let us store a lot of our music and pictures on the device.

Sony Xperia Z: Let’s start with its USP – it is dust and water resistant! Who wouldn’t love a phone that’s so sturdy that it’s virtually impossible to damage it?

Sony Xperia Z Vs HTC One Or Should We Wait and See What Samsung Galaxy S4 Has In Store

This one’s exclusively for the hardcore tech enthusiast who doesn’t mind splurging on his or her gadgets. Sure, 2013 started with a bang if we talk about the world of smartphones – first was the dust and water resistant Sony Xperia Z unveiled at CES, then came the HTC One with a mind-boggling resolution of 468 ppi.

Both these phones boast really fine specs, undoubtedly, and if you’re among the impatient kinds, we’d suggest you to go ahead and choose between them. But if you can hold on a little longer, it may be worth your while to see what Samsung brings forth in the Galaxy S4 a couple of weeks from now.

While we’ve still not received any official word from Samsung yet on the phone’s features and specs, we think it will definitely be worth checking out. Well, firstly because it has the Samsung tag – the company that makes the most number of smartphones in the world. Secondly, because Samsung managed to make an immensely successful Galaxy S3 which went on to become the most popular smartphone in 2012.

To maintain its position as the leader in this competitive market, we bet Samsung will do all that it can, and more, to ensure that the Galaxy S4 is as successful as its predecessor. Sure, in terms of specs, it will be comparable with the Sony Xperia Z and the HTC One. But there will be a marked difference in the Samsung flagship for sure – after all, it’s these little differences that make Samsung’s products stand out anyway.… Read the rest
