How the HTC One tries to reach the iPhone 5 and stays in the attempt

We compared the new HTC One to its direct rival, the iPhone 5. HTC has introduced a very powerful mobile, with a lot of processor, camera and screen, but it also has its weaknesses. The battle between the HTC One and the iPhone 5 is very close and we’ll show you what the strengths of each are and which foot each phone lacks.

This is the HTC One, the new smartphone from the Taiwanese brand that pretends to be the father of the whole One mobile family. This is a very ambitious mobile , in which the technical features have been taken care of in detail and whose main asset is the amazing performance it offers.

It claims to be one of the smartphones of the year 2013, and has made it very difficult for the competition with its 4 cores at 1.7 GHz and 2 GB of RAM. Not only has the interior of the phone been taken care of, but HTC has also paid special attention to the exterior design and materials used to create the device.

Its main features are the large 4.7-inch screen and its 468 pixels per inch, which is much higher than the Retina screen of the iPhone 5. In addition to a new processor, the Snapdragon 600, a 1.7 GHz Quad Core, which comes with 2GB of RAM. To power both components, the HTC comes with a 2300 mAh battery.

This HTC has been designed to rival the iPhone 5, which is certainly a tough task. But, as we mentioned in the title of post , it couldn’t beat the Apple giant. It is superior in terms of processor, screen and battery, but if there is one thing that makes the iPhone 5 a smartphone unique, it is its user experience .

I don’t know of any mobile phone that can beat the iPhone 5 in the latter, the user experience, an aspect that must be, in my opinion, the most cared for by any phone manufacturer. This is what distinguishes a good mobile from an excellent mobile, what makes a huge number of users look comfortable using it or what makes it stay in a very nice mobile, with a lot of camera and very fast, but unmanageable.

Not only does the iPhone 5 emphasize the user experience, but its fusion of hardware and software is unique. HTC One has tried to emulate it, but the difference between having an operating system created exclusively for one machine and having a system created for different devices, is obvious. You will never get the same performance from those 4 cores without having a software specifically created for them.

Nowadays, it is difficult to beat the iPhone in terms of smartphone , valuing it as a set of the physical part and the operating system. It is true that in terms of performance and technical features it is simple and the HTC is not the first mobile to achieve this, but in terms of usability it is really complicated. It must be because Apple was a pioneer brand in the creation of this type of mobile, and although everyone tries to do the same, very few succeed. This is what Tim Cook himself said.

If we analyze it in a global way, I would keep the Apple model, since what I value most about a mobile phone is its usability , its handling, which is what I have in mind in my daily life. For those people who value more than that, a better camera than many compact ones, a better processor than many computers…, no doubt, they will have to choose the Android option. But one thing is for sure, no matter how much hardware we have, if the software is not in line, it is useless.
