If you haven’t heard about the HTC One by now, I’d best advise you to go to our full review here. For the rest of you, here’s a quick recap of the incredible HTC One. It’s got a brilliant 4.7-inch Full HD screen, an all aluminum design and beneath it a blazing fast quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU, clocked at a cool 1.7Ghz.
However, the HTC One is not all specs and no features, it has features like front facing BoomSound speakers, an UltraPixel camera with Zoe, and BlinkFeed. Today HTC has released an advertisement promoting BlinkFeed in a restaurant.
The 30-second long ad has people swiping at their phones while dirt streams out of their smartphones. The narrator claims:
[quote qtext=”“Wouldn’t it be better if all of your apps, sites and networks were all in the same place?”” qperson=”” qsource=”” qposition=”center”]
Well that’s exactly what BlinkFeed does, bringing a Windows Phone-esque homepage with your favourite news and social media content all in the same place.
Although some reviewers haven’t fallen head over heels for the feature (mostly because you can’t remove it from your homepage), HTC is going all in with BlinkFeed and if you’re not a fan of the feature, look at the brightside, at least you’ll have a dirt-free smartphone.
What’s also interesting is the tagline at the end, it seems that the “quietly brilliant” slogan is officialy gone, as the narrator brashly claims that the HTC One is “everything your phone isn’t.” But enough jibber jabber, the video is below so what are you waiting for, click play and see just what HTC sees in BlinkFeed.
What do you think of the ad and BlinkFeed? Are you planning on picking up the HTC One?
