Buying Guide, Top mobile phones compared: what phone is best for you?
1. HTC One
Don’t fear HTC fans – your darling is still number one. As our only five star phone, its combination of impressive UI and stunning aluminium build means it was always safe in the number one
It’s nothing to do with the quality of the S4 or the LG G2 – outstanding phones in anyone’s book – but more the fact HTC has managed to bring out a smartphone that’s worthy of any user’s consideration.
The supreme aluminium chassis, the Full HD screen and the simplified version of Sense 5.0 sitting on top of Android Jelly Bean (plus KitKat any day now!) means it’s a pleasure to use and recommend this handset.
The new innovations are also pleasingly more than just marketing gimmicks; Zoe functionality allows the creation of delightful video highlight reels, and the Ultrapixel camera means you’ve got a much wider range of shots available thanks to being stunning in low light.
With power, poise and beauty all combined in this innovative phone, HTC has proved it can more than still cut it with the big boys when it comes to bringing out a lust-worthy flagship smartphone – and it’s also proved that it still knows how to beat the Samsungs and LGs of this world into third and second place with ease.
We’re now starting to wonder how long HTC can hold its place at the top, and with 2014’s best and brightest approaching, you might want to wait to see what’s coming up – but with that metallic frame, there’s no short supply of users ready to coo all over it the second it lands in their hand.
