BoomSound on the HTC One is really fat (video)
posted by Daniel P. / Mar 12, 2013, 7:11 AM
The One sports dual-membrane mics and two frontal stereo speakers with amplifier. The twin-membrane microphone trio aims to capture a wider sound range, topping out at 120 dB, which, while not quite the Nokia 808 PureView or Lumia 920's 140 dB from the HAAC mics, is still a very respectable range, and should do well to capture concerts without much distortion.
phone instead being muted on the back. The specs say that the speakers can pump out up to 93 dB of sound, which is up with the best mobile speakers, and in stereo to boot. These are the dry numbers, however, as their are other prerequisites for a good audio experience like sound fullness and the like, so check out how the twin-speaker system on the HTC One sounds like in reality with the video below.What about the audio output, however - HTC touts its amplified twin speaker system, which finally someone decided to put at the front of a
- Display 4.7" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 4 MP / 2.1 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Quad-core, 1700 MHz
- Storage 64 GB
- Battery 2300 mAh(18h 3G talk time)

Since the top speaker is also an earpiece, imagine answering a phone call without knowing that the speaker is ON! Just kidding, this is really awesome, how many times did you have to bring your phone close to your ear because you're in a really loud place. THIS, IS AWESOME. Phone manufacturers should care more anout this kind of things like speakers, camera, instead of making huge displays with 8 core processors.

Yes,other phone manufacturers should also improve the sound quality on their phones. I always have to place my hand on the speaker so that I can hear the sound but it's great to hear that HTC has already improved the quality with boom sound

Whatever you wanted to know about the HTC One. This is a great promo video. It's about the device and tells you all about the main features. It is almost exactly how the official promo should look like. Different theme and ambiance with real live footage. Great! http://youtu.be/2isfiSe51yw

8 core is gimmick mate. If its only utilizing 4 cores every time, then make the same 4 power saving as well!!

You can't really say it's a gimmick. They are just future proof the phone. The same way they put 2GB of ram in SGS3 and at the time, ICS 4.0 doesn't require that much ram. 8 cores won't push its limit until the later on version of OS.

Um...lol You need 8 cores to even make an A15 chip set run on phones. Samsung giving us true A15 power is definitely not a gimmick. I would rather have a true A15 quad rather than Nvidias approach with the Tegra 4i which is a gutted A15 that is no different from the fake A15 cores approach used by Qualcomm and Apple. The tegra 4 is a beast but it is starting to look like that is reserved for tablets and higher while the gimped Tegra 4i will be for phones. Using brute force and building a solid foundation is hardly a gimmick compared to other approaches that cut corners to try and achieve A15 performance in a cell phone.

samsung's 8 core processor isnt a true 8 core. it's a quad-core A15 and a quad-core A7.it also sounds like you didnt do any research on at all and you barely even know what you're talking about as far as the Exynos Octa

Speakers, camera, AND BATTERY Life :D I have to say general public have no idea what a 8 core processors really is for, but only geeks like us do :P Let's be honest, general public want a good phone with good price and good bonus, but not what's inside of a phone. Bc you can show for how great of the pictures your camera takes instead of how fast you can opening up a game like angry bird XD (However, I do care about how fast I can switch from app to app flawlessly.)

Absolutely awesome. I haven't heard a speaker this good since my old Nextel Motorola work phone. I always asked myself why manufacturers never put better speakers in their phones...clearly, it's possible.
