The new One also comes with the latest Snapdragon 801 quad-core system chip, an even more intense aluminum unibody construction, and 25% more powerful BoomSound front-facing stereo speakers. And it's not just that - HTC has improved the phone all around, even adding expandable storage via microSD cards of up to 128 gigs. Actually, the only change we can think of in the new One that could possibly bring forth some negativism is the increased overall footprint of the device - it's just larger and a bit bulkier than the original handset.
However, with all the improvements, we should not forget that the new HTC One is not floating in a vacuum. Quite the contrary - in fact, it's arrived in an ever more competitive Android environment, having to fight with devices like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2.
With all this in mind and before the dust around it settles, we're looking forward to your reaction to the new HTC One: did you like it? Give us your opinion on HTC's 2014 flagship right below.
