HTC One Comparison With Top Selling Australian Devices

This page summarises the HTC One’s key benefits. Below are links to in depth reviews of the HTC One vs Top Selling Australian Mobile Phones.

HTC One Plus Points

At the time of writing, in the opinion of WhatPhone, the HTC One is the best mobile phone in Australia.

It’s blindingly fast, takes phone cameras in a new and useful direction, has some genuinely useful software, an upgrades front camera, a better battery than its predecessor, it’s 4G enabled, has a true high definition screen and better resolution than the Retina screen on an iPhone 5. Oh, and it looks beautiful.

HTC One Negative Aspects

The complaints we have about the HTC One are few and far between. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a removable back cover which means you won’t be able to fit your own expandable memory or swap the battery out. It’s released with Jellybean just before Key Lime Pie ( a more recent version of Android software ) becomes available. But then, HTC say you’ll be able to upgrade it if you’d like to, not long after launch. Finally, there’s no physical camera button and, for some, the on / off switch is awkwardly placed on the top of the phone.

That’s it. They’re the only problems we can think of to tell you.
