Comparing the HTC One To Other Flagship Android Devices; How Does HTC Stack Up?

February 20, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Yesterday, HTC finally announced it’s newest flagship device the HTC One. Which is going to build on the One branding they started at Mobile World Congress 2012. The HTC One actually has some pretty good specs, and has a brand new processor that only one other device currently has. The HTC One has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor which was announced at CES last month and is also on the LG Optimus G Pro which was announced during the weekend in Korea.

We’ve already seen benchmarks for the HTC One. With the Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM and the other great specs, you’d expect it to blow away the competition on benchmarks, which it does. But when looking at the rest of the specs on the HTC One compared to the competition, they are rather similar. Except for the processor and screen resolution. No other device has a 1080p display at a 4.7-inch size. The HTC One is also coming to T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T which is a big step for HTC. Getting their flagship device on most of the major US carriers.

The table shown below was put together by our friends at Droid-Life. They compare the HTC One, to the Nexus 4, Droid DNA and Galaxy Note 2. Which are all top sellers on their respective carriers. Even the Nexus 4, even though LG and Google can’t seem to keep it in stock.


Now I’ve already reviewed the LG Nexus 4, HTC Droid DNA, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. All of them were some pretty impressive devices. So seeing that the HTC One destroys them in benchmarks, I’m anxious to get my hands on one and see how great it really is. HTC always has great hardware, but they sometimes fall apart on the software side. Especially with updates. Just as an example, the HTC One X on AT&T still doesn’t have Jelly Bean. Now that is probably AT&T’s fault and not HTC’s but it’s still a con for HTC in general.

How many of you are thinking about picking up the HTC One? What device are coming from to get the HTC One? Let us know in the comments below.
