HTC certainly did a great job of making headlines in February at Mobile World Congress when they announced their new One lineup, which includes 3 new phones: the HTC One S, the One V, and the One X. We were lucky enough to get a quick hands on at MWC, but now that we have the device in our office, we had time to shoot a more detailed video of this very impressive device.

To sum it up, the 1.4Ghz dual core device is fast, well built, and has some great hardware/software onboard, making it an effective weapon in HTC's arsenal. For those who might not be familiar with the device, here's a quick spec rundown:

  • 121.9 grams with battery

  • 4.3 inch AMOLED touch screen with qHD resolution (540 x 960) with 2D Corning Gorilla Glass

CPU speed

  • 1.5 GHz, dual core

Memory

  • Total storage: 16 GB

Connectors

  • 3.5 mm stereo audio jack
  • DLNA for wirelessly streaming media from the phone to a compatible TV or computer
  • micro-USB 2.0 (5-pin) port with mobile high- definition video link (MHL) for USB or HDMI connection

Camera

  • 8 megapixel camera, LED flash with 5 Power settings and object distance sensor
  • BSI sensor (for better low-light image capture) • f2.0 aperture to maximize light gathering in Low Light environments,
  • 1080p HD video recording
  • Dedicated imaging chip for clearer, sharper shots
  • Always in focus thanks to Extended Depth Of Field
  • Camera on video : capture quality still shots while taking video or after
  • Face and smile detection
  • High speed video capture and playback in slow motion

Below is our detailed video review of the device. We are very happy with the phone, and will soon have a hands on review of its quad core packing big brother, the HTC One X.

Stay tuned! (Youtube video link here)

    Well, if this is a T-Mobile branded HTC Smart Phone, it may be the clincher in getting me to leave Verizon for T-Mobile (IF HTC can deal with the recent issues that their ONE models are apparently having) as I've had this HTC Incredible for a l-o-o-o-o-n-g time ...
