The HTC One with its 4.7-inch 1080p display is still one of the best high-end smartphone out there despite the arrival of impressive new smartphones in recent months. It is a good thing to know that the off-contract version of the device has just gotten a bit cheaper for prepaid subscribers in the UK. The 32GB HTC One with silver chassis is now available for only £375, including VAT. The more desirable black model is a bit more expensive at £389. These prices are a significant saving, since both color options were previously available for £440 and £450.
With its smaller 4.7-inch full HD display and slower Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, the HTC One could be seen as an underwhelming alternative compared to newer devices. However, the phone is known for its great multimedia solutions.
With the UltraPixel camera, users can shoot true-to-life and vivid images with impressive colour reproduction even in dimmer situation. With larger pixel, the sensor can capture three times more light than average mobile cameras. The dedicated HTC ImageChip directly improves autofocus performance, while delivering reduced noise. The f/2.0 aperture is the largest available in the industry and it allows in about 44 percent more light than the camera of the iPhone 5.
