Htc one m7 đánh giá

The HTC of today is a long way removed from the company that launched the year"s best flagship phone bachồng in 2013. In those days, Smartphone HTC was at the peak of its popularity, with serious industry clout và money to lớn spover following svào performances in 2010 and 2011. In the Android world, the pendulum would seem khổng lồ swing from Điện thoại HTC khổng lồ rival Samsung from year to lớn year.

HTC"s disparate 2012 smartphone lineup, consisting of the One X, One S, One X+ and EVO 4G LTE, had failed khổng lồ set the world alight. And so as a new year dawned, Smartphone HTC prepared for the launch of the "M7" -- simply the M7, as it was known in rumors at the time. Indeed, in a Clip clip since lost to lớn time, at the company"s Chinese New Year tiệc nhỏ, CEO Peter Chou screamed "Điện thoại HTC One!" và "M7!" to a crowd of cheering employees. Smartphone HTC was on top of the world, & Chou & his assembled disciples in Taipei knew it. This was the peak of HTC"s golden age; it was about to lớn launch what would be widely regarded as its best phone ever.

The One & only

The HTC One, as it was branded, recycled the branding of the previous year, but the phone itself couldn"t have been more different. It featured the first aluminum unibody toàn thân in an Android flagship, alongside the best screen, fastest performance và striking, unmistakable thiết kế tenets from chief designer, Scott Croyle.

Front và center: BoomSound. A bombastic new brand that took advantage of HTC"s recent Beats acquisition to emphaform size front-facing audio fidelity. Sandwiched between it was an LCD display that ran rings around the OLEDs of the day. And on the inside, the new Snaprồng 600 processor combined with touchscreen tech licensed from Apple gave Smartphone HTC an undeniable performance edge.

Looking baông xã, the Điện thoại HTC One was one of the few phones that I"ve been genuinely excited to unbox over the years. In 2013, this felt lượt thích something different & special, with cold metal on the outside và pure performance within. And when it roared to life for the first time with a BoomSound-enhanced jingle, I was taken aback at the power of its speakers. The entire package spoke to lớn smartphones" new status as powerful truyền thông consumption devices, in addition to the communication credentials they"d already developed.

Ahead of its time

When I saw the Samsung Galaxy S4 for the first time a few weeks later, it was obvious Smartphone HTC had won. The reason why? Design. While both Samsung và Smartphone HTC, the two Android giants of the time, plowed ahead with high giải pháp công nghệ, only HTC was able to lớn focus the power of it through the lens of excellent hardware and software thiết kế. The efforts of Samsung, a far bigger company by comparison, looked sloppy and childish.

The M7 was also one of those phones that saw Smartphone HTC debuting groundbreaking technologies which, with hindsight, seem far ahead of their time. The Ultrapixel camera took fairly low-res 4MP photos, but with unmatched low-light fidelity for 2013. The relative pixel sizes of the M7"s camera broadly line up with what we"re seeing from late 2019 & early 2020 cameras, though with far weaker processing.

HTC"s Sense 5 software also brought in BlinkFeed — controversial lớn begin with, but now a clear predecessor to lớn the Google Feed, as well as iOS"s Today View. Phone nerds loved to lớn complain about BlinkFeed"s persistent presence, but its combination of news, social và phầm mềm updates was fairly groundbreaking.

So too was Điện thoại HTC Zoe. Thanks to lớn its chất lượng sensor & computational horsepower, the M7 was able to shoot a bunch of frames both before and after the main photo lớn in any capture, letting you scroll bachồng through time khổng lồ restore missed moments. HTC"s Gallery would also gift you Clip highlights, a feature that eventually made it to lớn Google Photos & the iPhone. See, ahead of its time.

Peak HTC

The 2013 Điện thoại HTC One introduced so many innovative features that HTC ultimately failed lớn capitalize on. Beats was sold off at a loss the following year. Smartphone HTC Zoe languished và eventually died. BoomSound was sacrificed in the name of ever-smaller screen borders. And the UI that actually managed lớn surpass stochồng Android in terms of smoothness, responsiveness and aesthetics became stale as an increasingly cash-strapped Smartphone HTC was reluctant to lớn pour money into its software experience.

You can debate whether Điện thoại HTC truly peaked with the M7 in 2013, or the successor, the M8, in năm trước. Either way, somewhere in the interlặng between those two years Điện thoại HTC peaked, & from there the inevitable decline began. A brain drain began with the departure of Scott Croyle, followed by a cavalcade of executives và eventually Peter Chou himself. The M9, HTC 10 & U11 saw steady declines in sales as the company"s smartphone division swirled in the drain.

As such, the One M7 stands as an example of just how brilliantly HTC"s star shone at its zenith, as well as the start of a cautionary tale on the perils of the smartphone business, và the fickle nature of the consumer base.

But for a time, Điện thoại HTC was at the top of the Android heap.
