HTC is revamping its Android lineup with the One series of marquee phones. The company has just introduced the One X, One S, and One V Android phones, and it has also announced Sense 4, the newest version of the love-it-or-hate-it Android skin. Keep up with all of the announcements and hands-on impressions as they come in here.
The One series represents HTC’s attempt to get back on course, both in terms of hardware and software. We spoke with HTC's Director of User Experience, Drew Bamford, about how Sense 4 signals the company's response to user feedback and a simplification that mirrors the hardware strategy behind the One phones
HTC's chief product officer has said in an interview that its newest version of the Sense UI is meant to reduce the clutter that plagued earlier versions of the Android skin.
HTC is touting the design quality of the One X and One S heavily and it's easy to see why. The One X has a polycarbonate body that we like almost as much as the Lumia 800, but it's materials on the One S that really stand out
We took a quick look at the car dock for the One X. It is a straightforward charging affair with no extra frills, clicking the phone in and charging it via microUSB.
We spent some time at HTC's booth here at MWC and learned a few new details on the Media Link HD. Like its predecessor, the HTC Media Link, it acts as a straightforward DLNA receiver if your television doesn't support it. The HD version adds a few extra HTC touches, including the ability to stream movies wrapped in DRM from the HTC Watch movie service
HTC has graced MWC with three new Android smartphones, forming its all-new HTC One series. The One X, One S, and One V all run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with a Sense 4 skin on top.
We've done a direct comparison of the thickness of the HTC One S and One X, two very similar devices separated by 1.1 millimeters.
HTC's One V is the "budget" offering in its 2012 lineup and has the specs to match: a WVGA screen, 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera, and 4 gigs of storage. There's nothing embarrassing about a phone that's not featuring the latest specs or the thinnest body and that goes double for the One V, which takes the classic HTC Legend form factor and updates it for 2012.
The HTC One S is the best designed phone of the year so far. It measures just 7.6mm in thickness but feels even thinner thanks to its slanted sides and the way the front glass surface slopes off the edges.
HTC's new flagship is here: the HTC One X is in the vanguard of not just the new "One" lineup, but of HTC's mini-revival for 2012. Based on our brief time with it, we think the phone will manage to pull off both of those heavy tasks, though whether it will be enough to fend off Samsung's rumored Galaxy S III is sadly going to be an open question until later this year. For now, the HTC One X impresses on its own terms and specs, and what great specs they are.
AT&T has announced that its HTC Vivid will be receiving an upgrade to Android 4.0 and Beats Audio "in the coming weeks."
Bringing up the rear in HTC's 2012 cavalcade of new phones is the One V, a 3.7-inch Android 4.0 smartphone with an aluminum unibody design that evokes the well-liked Legend handset of 2010.
