The emergence of the feeling of HTC is an important event in the world of smartphones running Android. Not because the Taiwanese company showed its flagship later Korean rivals Samsung and LG represented, but because of the feeling at the moment is the most technologically advanced smart phone based on Android. At least if you look at things like processor speed, amount of RAM, screen resolution and others. The banner ad in the spring may be interpreted in different ways. However, HTC Incredible S had to be known for a while before feeling HTC advertised. And maybe the HTC just out of 3.0 IU sense?
No matter, because it brings feelings of a year ago, when HTC has pioneered the market for Android smartphones and true leaders in their class. That feeling is now the best HTC Android smartphone in the world, I think we can excuse for the delay for that.
Design, materials, case
Design HTC feeling is somewhat unusual, I think. This battery cover bite is a controversial decision, I did not like since the days of cheap WP7 smartphone - HTC Mozart. But this is my subjective impression if you own what your opinion is certainly the opposite. On the other hand, the design feel of HTC is definitely cool and classic. The device looks simple and unassuming despite the mixture of plastic and metal at the top of the battery. It has a universal design: "gray" on the one hand and futuristic at the other, it looks great, except the back cover. You can love your design or you can leave it irrelevant, but certainly not hate him.
The materials used are almost exclusively of metal, except for two plastic inserts on the back cover and Gorilla Glass on the screen. The way the surface of the screen is unusual. It is slightly bent inwards, imagining a large screen surface with edges slightly tilted upward. In this way, HTC tried to save the screen from scratches when you put the phone screen on the table.
Dimensions and construction quality
The smartphone is relatively thin, but can not compete with Sony Ericsson Arch thick, and is heavier than the Samsung Galaxy 2. HTC feeling dimensions are: 126.1 x 65.4 x 11.3 mm. In my opinion significant weight to the phone only an advantage, you feel a good device in their hands not only a plastic toy. The build quality is good for a smartphone and the point here is not exactly, but also the construction of the body. The front (screen and all the "guts") are inserted into the box, which is represented by the battery cover. The whole design is very solid.
Feeling HTC uses the same sensor unit below the screen as in all other new smartphones. It is convenient for the press as they are well spaced and backlit. Power button is at the top about a 3.5 mm jack for headphones. Volume control buttons are on the left edge. No camera button, the camera is activated from the menu. MicroUSB connector is located on the left side of the device. No HDMI output so if you want to use HTC feeling to watch videos on your HDTV you will have to buy a special cable.
This gadget has a 4.3 "capacitive touch screen is also S-LCD, .. Like the other new models HTC Feeling company is one of the few devices with Android has QHD resolution 960x540 pixels which makes 16 : 09 aspect ratio. Here are some other smartphones with the same resolution, Motorola and HTC models for the U.S. market, however, Apple iPhone Meizu M9 4 and both have a screen resolution of 960x640 pixels. The screen quality is very good if not better. I'm a fan of the classic TFT display for The feeling is the best there is in terms of showing in my opinion. But we understand that your screen is normal there is no brightness or color super crazy as AMOLED screens. The screen has excellent viewing angles and good brightness.
Feeling HTC has a modulus of 8-megapixel camera and two flash LED. Based on the growing power of the device, compared to previous models, the company has added support for videos in FullHD (1080p, 1920x1080 pixels), as well as simple photo editors and video.
Interface and platform
The smartphone runs on Android 2.3 with the latest version of HTC Sense has just appeared on their devices. Let's review briefly some of the most remarkable things about the new direction. Locking the new screen. Now instead of dragging a bow down to unlock the screen, you need to pull a ring from the bottom center of the screen. There are also four customizable icons (you choose what to put there), for example, address book, call log, email and message. If you pull the icon in the center ring that opens and automatically starts the application that you have chosen.
Virtual desktops are now spinning like a carousel in three dimensions and looks stunning, but has no practical use. There is also a new HTC Task Manager, as well as Wi-Fi printing feature. Technology was implemented well known in Swype basic keyboard and HTC called Trace. There is also a new weather widget, clicking on the time it opens a window to full screen effects. It also removes the restriction on the number of windows open simultaneously in the database browser is especially good news for me.
The device is built on a platform of Qualcomm MSM 8260, this new platform from Qualcomm has a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. However, it is difficult to say if the feeling HTC is better in performance than NVIDIA Tegra-based devices 2, we have to wait for the final samples and stable firmware. The smartphone has 768 MB of RAM and 1 GB of storage. Besides feeling has a microSD card slot. It also has all the wireless connectivity standard for modern Android smartphone: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.
The new smartphone is made by the principle of "faster, higher, stronger" HTC preferred approach for many years and in 2010 the accents were a bit skewed towards services and the expansion of the range. However, the feeling returns these principles and I am personally very happy. New platform with dual-core processor, the new high-resolution screen, the new version of HTC Sense and support higher resolution video recording at all feeling fit in HTC.
The Company is not flirting with separate areas of the device, but simply increases the overall bar Android smartphones. Of course, we all realize that the time the champions of today is very short, a couple of months is the time that any high-end smartphone goes on the top step. But the feeling HTC does not become less attractive and interesting. If you're wondering what Android smartphone will be one of the most technologically advanced this summer one of the options is the feeling of HTC. The hands on the next video.
