Thanks to dual-diaphragm microphone and HD Voice, the call quality of the HTC One really be perfect. While dialogue partners praised the intelligibility and clarity, they criticized the somewhat too tinny sound. Nevertheless, which is marked on the side of the one-user even stronger. Vote in favour of volume and here is the good course. This also applies to the speakers, even when they leave here not quite so eminent, such as music or videos.
Overall, the voice quality is moving quite a high level. HD Voice works with HTc One course only on the network of Telekom and if the other party also uses an HD voice-enabled phone.
The 2300 mAh battery
This is indeed far from battery sizes such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 of away, but ranges from good to get through the day. In the test, the HTC One had indeed often appear after 5 or 6 hours into the mains, but then the display was predominantly active. In AnTuTu test, the battery of the HTC One managed only 477 points, the Xperia Z came to 519 points.
The test conclusion is, however, the HTC one is unique. Design, choice of materials and build quality are the best, the display is a stunner, inspire the music and features Sense 5.0 with the new Blink Feed looks chic. One coming to the HTC a good voice quality and a sufficiently strong battery – what you want to there more?
It is room for improvement on HTC One is always in the details. Sun setting options are missing for the sound of the player, the TV app does not work quite optimal and there is neither a memory card slot nor a replaceable battery, which can cause users the HTC One count too fast for the scrap heap and replaced by a new.
Under the clock there is a clearly structured main menu, on the always 3 apps are grouped next to each other. Optionally, you can also create folders here; some apps such as the Google services like the Chrome browser, Gmail, Google Maps Navigation are already sorted. Appropriate folder can be stored in the taskbar, which is flashing feed and other Home screens everywhere. In addition, the 2 ubiquitous sensor buttons are below the screen. On a third button HTC omitted from the One, the task manager can be reached at the device by double pressing the home button. This does not cause problems, but it would mean the HTC logo useful as a third button and was even cooler.
In addition, while we are at once keys and their assignment, the power button can also be mentioned, which was placed on the upper left front side of the HTC one. It seems to consist of black plastic. In fact, he does not only serve as on and off switch for the smartphone, but with a transparent plastic cover is also an infrared transmitter, which allows you to control the domestic hi-fi system, the satellite receiver and TV. HTC shall ensure equal even when the app “TV”. The general operation works so perfectly. Simply the manufacturer of the device to be controlled to specify the unit where the setup accordance with the given key switch on – done. Then allows basic functions like changing channels, volume or menu operation of the device operate fantastic.
We tested this on a Samsung TV. Not everything works smoothly. Therefore, the app fails due to the previously mentioned favourite stations before but current and subsequent shipments. Which will be shown with image and name, a tap on it then goes directly to the appropriate channel. Nevertheless, you have to specify when you set up your own postcode to region and determining the type of TV reception. To choose but are only providers like cable, Unity Media and Telecom.
If you click on an appropriate broadcast, the TV changes the channel but obedient, however, will not land you in the consignment. The rest works perfectly and the transmission power of the HTC One is extremely respectable.
Many Android smartphones are the latest chapter in the music boring. Why? Because many manufacturers simply applaud the original Android version on their device in an appropriate and thus sometimes listless and have their products interchangeably. Sure, it has some advantages, such as when it comes to updates. The more quickly a lack of great adaptation work on this very boring equipment. When HTC One simple but it shows that the manufacturer has given a lot of effort to throw no 08/15-Modell on the market – even if not at first glance.
Because after the start of the Player of the users of the HTC One lands on a rather inconspicuous white summary page, in the songs and albums illustrated by artist. There are not simply displays album art, but a thumbnail of the corresponding band. The smartphone is the concern about the Gracenote database – with which we would be equal to the next highlight. After you choose a title, you end up back at first but in a conventional look Player, which can be experienced alongside cover art and the typical controls no surprise. Until you get the little note icon at the top right of the 3 typical Android points, pushes that are symbolic of a submenu.
Because then displays a frame-filling graph that gives similar form for PC music players like Winamp & Co. These visualizations seem to follow their movements to the rhythm of the song and roughly apparently respond to the volume of their songs – it may be wrong, but also because it is just so familiar desktop experience.
Send karaoke option
In addition to the request based on Gracenote text also appears that invites presented in karaoke-like manner to sing along. For more information about song, artist and similar artists can also be found on Gracenote via the aforementioned menu button in the player. There, even a snippet of Google Maps will be displayed indicating the residence during the search. Is a criticism it become. For whoever wants to personalize the sound equalizer by looking in the tube. With Beats headset, the sound is other than a touch more treble therefore really well – he is specifically adapted to these headphones.
