If you guessed the HTC One then you are correct. The recently announced HTC One device hit the scene a little over a week ago in New York City and London, but it was present at this past Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain where many were impressed with this phone as we were when we got our hands on it. GSMA awarded HTC with the “Award for Best New Handset, Device or Tablet” and we couldn’t agree more. As mentioned in our first impressions, the HTC One is beautifully designed and by far one of my favorite devices in the past years.

Benjamin Ho, Chief Marketing Officer for HTC accepted the award commenting, “We are delighted by the reactions from both consumers and the industry to the new HTC One. It is a device that has been years in the making and is one of which we are incredibly proud. With exciting features like BlinkFeed, BoomSound, UltraPixel camera combined with the zero gap aluminium body design, we believe that the HTC One will really change the way that people use their phones, revolutionising the overall mobile experience.”

That’s not all the HTC One won that week, It also received recognition from both Tech Radar (“Best Phone” and “Best in Show”) and Mobile Geeks (“Best Smartphone”).

Big congrats to HTC and the awards they received. This is one of our most anticipated devices to review and we cant wait to give you the full review soon!
