A detailed look at HTC Sense 4.0 and HTC One series features
HTC One is intended to take HTC to the next level, by incorporating ground breaking technology into the One device for your music, camera, and mobile needs.
Sense 4 has many new innovations, including and amazing camera. Since the camera is the second most user phone feature (after making calls) HTC wants to give users “the power of a true digital camera on your phone.” In order to make capturing photos and video, HTC has chosen to display both the camera shutter button and video recording button at the same time. HTC has also reduced the lag time between launching the camera application and taking a picture down to 0.7 seconds.
All HTC one devices will feature advanced BSI imaging sensors along with f2.0 lenses and a dedicated HTC lmage Chip for clearer, sharper shots. The flash has also been improved with an LED Smart Flash with 5 auto adjustable power levels. Like HTC’s latest Android phones, One devices will feature all of the same Scalado imaging enhancements which include burst mode, smile recognition, HDR and more. One devices will also have the ability to record video and capture images simultaneously so that you never miss that perfect shot. Images can even be extracted from HD video after it has been recorded.
HTC has also announced that they are expanding their partnership with DropBox by fully integrating cloud storage into HTC Sense 4.0. Anyone who purchases and HTC One device will be treated to 25GB of cloud storage through DropBox (for up to two years).
HTC Media Link HD allows users to connect their devices to and display via HDMI and allows dual-screen and mirroring capabilities. Users can stream picture, music and video wirelessly to a second display with the ability to continue interaction with the device. Simply use three finders to swipe up on your content in your media gallery to share with another display and then swipe down on your screen with three fingers when you are done.
All HTC One devices will also feature full Beats Audio integration for an “authentic sound experience” not available from other Android phones. Unlike previous iterations of Beat on HTC’s phones, HTC Sense 4.0 integration with Beats Audio brings the audio enhancement to all audio and video applications on the device. Users will also be able to sync their phones with almost any music service they have on their computer and once they have set it up, Sense 4.0 features a wireless music sync capability which will pull in all your latest music and playlists from your computer over WiFi.
HTC One also helps integrate your phone into your car with a new Car Clip which plugs into your car stereo’s 3.5mm auxiliary input. A new intuitive interface surfaces your music, maps, contacts, messages and more into a more so that you can easily access all your information on your HTC One device without the typical distractions of the traditional Android UI.
With HTC Sense 4.0, the new HTC One series of phones is a huge step forward and will hopefully help HTC get back on track to becoming the best Android manufacturer. What new features are you looking forward to the most on your HTC One handset?
