Invest in great design with the new HTC One

If you’re considering upgrading your phone, you might be thinking about the new iPhone 5S or the Samsung Galaxy S4. But wait, have you considered the HTC One? HTC’s newest smartphone boasts an innovative design, so why not take a few moments to read our handy guide to the HTC One to see if it’s the right choice for you.

Gorgeous design

The HTC One boasts an all-aluminium body and sleek edge-to-edge screen, which means it’s not as light as some other phones on the market. This adds to the feel you’re buying a premium build though, and it’s a gorgeous design which won’t go unnoticed! If you watch a lot of videos on your phone, you’ll enjoy the 4.7 inch full HD screen, which makes videos and images incredibly sharp and vibrant. In fact, it’s quite possibly one of the best smartphone screens around, so if that’s important to you, the HTC One could be your perfect phone!

Powerful technology

The HTC One doesn’t just look great, it’s also powerful inside too. With 32GB storage and 3G/4G and Wi-Fi connectivity, this is one of the best designed phones on the market, and it’s thinner than its predecessor, the HTC One X. The only real negative is that you can’t use a memory card to boost storage, and the design means the phone is quite slippery to hold.

Where to buy

You’ll find the HTC One is available on most networks, although it’s probably a better idea to take out a contract rather than buying the phone outright. It’s a good idea to use a comparison site such as uSwitch.com to compare the available deals, as the tariff and network you choose will depend on what you use your phone for – for example you might spend a lot of time texting, or mostly use your phone for calls and browsing the web. Take the time to compare the available offers as prices can vary greatly. You should also watch out for contract length, as this can vary from 12 months to 24 months, and whilst it can often be cheaper to take a longer contract, you will be tied in for the length of the contract, so bear this in mind before signing up.

If you’re considering buying the HTC One, or any smartphone, it’s a good idea to try before you buy. Whilst you’ll usually find the cheapest deals available online, you could pop into your nearest mobile phone store to look at the handset and see if it’s right for you. Smartphone handsets such as the HTC One and the iPhone 5S vary in size and shape, so what is right for one person may not be right for another. Once you’ve decided it’s perfect for you, you can browse and buy your phone online!
