The launch of the HTC One series makes your iPhone look really dated

Deary me.

A colleague showed me her HTC One X yesterday.

Although I’ve seen the range at Mobile World Congress, observing the device in-the-wild (supplied from Vodafone with some fancy Beats Audio earphones) really made me look at my iPhone 4S and think: Shit.

Yeah.

The iPhone 4S — indeed, the whole iPhone range — is beginning to look seriously, seriously dated.

As my colleague scrolled through legions of useful widgets, smart functions and fancy little user interface niceties, I couldn’t help but think that my statement back in January 2011 is even more relevant today: The iPhone is the mobile industry’s Fisher Price smartphone.

Have you bought an HTC One series device recently? How are you getting on with it?

  1. I’m an EX sense user. No way will I touch another HTC again. Long live AOSP, long live the Nexus Line.

  2. Where? The top of the peak represents about 7:30am on Tuesday morning and I swear it hasn’t been on charge since.
    I do turn my phone off over night, but that is what I have always done with phones! I am now starting day 3 and still showing 41%. I’d be surprised if I don’t make it most of the way through today too. I’ll show you that image too if needs be?Like I say, what earthly reason would I have to make any of this up?

    Jeez some people are hard to please!?!

  3. …and just in case my nay-saying friend is still in any doubt

    For the record, I did need to plug my USB cable in both yesterday and today for around 20 seconds whilst I got these screenshot’s off my device. I assume he won’t accuse this of being a ‘partial charge’?

    Although I haven’t used my phone much today, I have to say, even I am starting to find this battery rather impressive!
