The first thing which we talk about is its Operating System on which the smartphone fully depends. The HTC One is loaded with the latest Android Jelly Bean Operating System. HTC had added latest Sense UI or Sense 5 to it which makes it more interesting. Another most interesting task about this flagship is its new homescreen. HTC has tied up with 1400 content providers which brings up sports, current affairs, business and technology related updates to you via BlinkFeed (BlinkFeed is a widget which supports vertical scrolling, it is also a page seen when you tap the home key).
Network and Connectivity

If your region has not been supported for the 4G, don’t panic, it also supports 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 bands for HSPA which provides the maximum downloading speed up to 100Mbps and upload speed up to 50Mbps. Notable point is that it accepts only Micro-SIMs not the Mini-SIMs. The HTC One supports the Wi-Fi 802.11 a/ac/b/g/n bands.
Design and Build
The design of the HTC One gone well. But the company made the phone nice by reducing weight of the smartphone which is 143 grams only, lighter than Xperia Z and the most bulky one LG Optimus G Pro (160 g).
