HTC posted a great blog entry about their thinking behind the construction and design of their shiny new HTC One. Designer Thomas Chien gushed openly about how good the One feels in the hand, but also touched on how tricky it was on the engineering side. Obviously an all-metal body (a first in the smartphone world) could cause some pretty hefty reception issues, but without going into too much technical detail, Chien sounded confident that they had created a phone that feels and functions great. Their tagline here is that "feeling is more important than physics", and certainly sets the scene for how the design and engineering teams work together at HTC.
What do you guys think of the overall look of the HTC One? How much will you need to actually hold one before making the decision to buy it?
