Feature: Ditching the iPhone for the HTC One

It's no secret that HTC's financial health is depending on the HTC One. They want the One to be in the hands of as many people as possible. To help facilitate this, the One allows you to easily transfer data from another device, including the iPhone. Data transfer from the iPhone is allowed from every iPhone version except for the original. If you still have an original, kudos. I guess. The following screenshots were taken by holding the power button and pressing the home button. The process is painfully simple. First you click on settings: From here you can see the Transfer Content option. They lay it all out in front of you. From there: Owners of other devices are in luck. HTC wants to make it easy for everyone to ditch their old device and come over to where the grass is greener. And that's about all there is to it. The next menu gives a short step-by-step process of what you need to do. Personal preference is to restore from backup, but the choice is yours. Obviously your iOS apps will not transfer over, but your contacts, pictures, and some other miscellaneous things will hop on over to the HTC One. This is just about as pain-free a process as in currently possible. You can find all your HTC One accessories in the HTC Shop.

Review: Incipio Feather SHINE for HTC One

Sometimes it can be easier to go with quick and easy protection than something more substantial. That's where the Incipio Feather SHINE case for the HTC One comes in. This single-layer hard shell case is just about as painless as they come. Incipio's Feather line is made for those that look for protection, but also care a lot about bulk and style factors. Much like the Incipio DualPro SHINE, the Feather SHINE has an aluminum-finish on the back. Therefore, whether or not the Feather SHINE is for you relies heavily on where you fall on the unique finish. Everything about the HTC One Feather Shine is simple in the best way. Because it's a snap-on case, it's delightfully easy to use and remove. In other, multi-layer cases, this can be a real killer. As previously mentioned, the back has an aluminum-finish. It's not actually aluminum, so don't fool yourself into thinking you're getting some extra protection here. What you are getting is a case that has a very smooth, distinct look that also catches the light. What you're also getting is a case that will show marks, scratches, and dents more prominently than others. Whether this trade-off is worth it to you depends on how much you care about that sort of thing and also how confident you are in your clumsiness. As with most snap-on cases there are cut-outs for everything. As you can see, the side of the Feather SHINE is slightly translucent. The Feather SHINE is very thin and light-weight, which most people will consider to be a plus. A single-layer hard shell case has to hit both of those goals for it be worth it. Except for a few edges that extend ever so slightly beyond the length of the One, the Feather SHINE sticks very close to the One's body. The form-fitting is a major plus. The HTC One Incipio Feather Shine is a worthy single-layer hard shell. If you're looking for something simple but stylish, it's a fine contender. Whether the Feather SHINE is for your or not largely depends on how you feel about the brushed aluminum. It's a very distinct look that's going to turn some people off. Besides that, it's a solid case and easily worth the money for a snap-on hard shell. Just be aware that there are cases that offer higher levels of protection out there. You can pick up the Incipio Feather SHINE from the HTCpedia Shop. You can snag all other HTC One accessories right here.

HTC One Can Take the Abuse

There's nothing like a good damage test video; when bloggers see just how much punishment their new tech can take. If you're curious about how much abuse the HTC One can handle, PhoneBuff have something to show you. In their new video they subject the One to scratch and general damage tests to see just how durable it is. This, by the way, includes a rubber mallet. So there's that. The HTC One is outfitted with Gorilla Glass, and that tends to be fairly durable. People were worried that the body would be prone to damage since aluminum is a fairly soft metal, but even that holds up surprisingly well. It turns out that the HTC One isn't as fragile as you might think. Check out the mayhem right here.

Review: Case-Mate Tough Case for the HTC One

Choosing the right dual-layer case can be more difficult than choosing the right single-layer case. The Case-Mate Tough Case for the HTC One tries to make the choice simpler by offering protection coupled with a user-friendly experience. Unlike many other dual-layer cases, the Tough Case is one of the easiest dual-layer cases to handle when it comes to separating layers and placing the phone in the case. Of course, everyone knows there is more to a case than that. As you can see, the first layer of the Tough Case is soft silicone. The silicone is actually unusally soft in the best way possible, making it one of the most pleasing silicone layers to handle. That may sound odd, but it's true. The silicone is placed in the hard shell so easily that it practically just falls into place. This acts as both a pro and a con because you get the feeling that it's not altogether stable. There are cases that do a better job of keep the two layers together, but often those are slightly more annoying to deal with. Arguably the "make-it-or-break-it" part of the Tough Case is the hard shell. The hard shell has a slightly rough, textured feel to it. It's not overt, but it's enough that some people are just going to dislike holding it. On the other hand, it does provide a certain level of grip, so that's something to keep in mind. Altogether the Tough Case is a slim dual-layer case, and neither piece offers serious levels of protection. This would fall on the low-end of dual-layer cases, so it's not something to throw around. The Tough Case has cut-outs for everything. All in all the Case-Mate Tough Case for the HTC One offers something of a compromise in that it doesn't offer the greatest level of protection, but it's very easy to handle and both layers have their defining characteristics. The textured back has good grip, but it's also going to drive some people up a wall. If style and ease-of-use is your thing, the Case-Mate Tough Case for the HTC One is a good bet. For everyone else, move on. The Case-Mate Tough Case for the HTC One can be purchased at the HTCpedia Shop. All other HTC One needs can be fulfilled right here.

Sprint Now Has Black HTC One

Sprint is the first carrier in North America to launch the One in a different color, beating AT&T and T-Mobile to the punch. The black HTC One is just like its silver counterpart in every except for the, uh, color.

Feature: HTC One BoomSound Review

BoomSound is one of the HTC's new innovations for the HTC One. It's also another feature that sounds more than a little gimmicky. A while back HTC released an infographic detailing BoomSound and how they want to take audio quality in a new direction. They hope to accomplish this with the HTC One. BoomSound isn't an adjustable option for the One; it's the very essence of how the phone reproduces sound. It's not like the Beats Audio option, which can be switched on and off, for example. It's no secret that phone audio quality is pretty terrible. Even if you enjoy streaming Pandora through your phone's speakers, you should be able to recognize that the sound leaves a lot to be desired. Fortunately, BoomSound is almost what HTC had previously promised. That is to say, it's possibly the best sounding phone we've ever heard. Compared to an iPhone 5, the One is the winner here. It's worth noting that even though the sound quality is above-par, it's still a phone. In most cases BoomSound is capable of replacing small portable speakers, especially if you have Beats Audio activated. With Beats Audio activated, the One puts more emphasis on the low-ends, which leaves the mids and highs in a bit of a bind. If you're looking for more natural sound reproduction it would be best to leave the option off. Beats tends to make products for bass-heads, and this isn't too far from that. So, yes, BoomSound is a real thing that sounds pretty great. It's not going to replace any audiophile equipment, though it could possibly take the place of low-end speakers or headphones. It's currently the best way to listen to music when compared to other devices out there -- headphones, of course, being the absolute preferred method when it comes to getting the best quality. It's refreshing to see a company take strides at attempting to increase audio quality in a smartphone, as it's a field that has only seen small increases in the past. Hopefully BoomSound will galvanize the competition to also make innovations in their audio reproduction.

HTC Riding High After Galaxy S4 Reviews

It looks like HTC are set to have a great year. As the company recovers from the disaster of 2012, reviews have been less kind to the Galaxy S4 than they have been for the One. Even though most reviewers say that the S4 is a good phone, everyone agrees that the One is where it's at. North American HTC president, Mike Woodward, has reportedly enjoying the success: “We look at [the Galaxy S4 reviews] through the lens of the HTC One, and it stands up positively,” Even though HTC have had several setbacks in getting the One out there, things are stating to look up for them. We have been suitably impressed by the One so far, and will be bringing you more features as the day goes on. It's also worth noting that even though all anyone can talk about in North America is the One, HTC have been pumping out device after device in Asia. Via: Business Insider
