Forget Samsung, Blackberry Or Apple! See Device Awarded PHONE Of The Year

The Best of the best:HTC One smartphone won the coveted T3 magazine ‘gadget of the year’ award

The HTC One smartphone has edged out Apple and Samsung to win the coveted T3 magazine gadget of the year award.
The phone beat off stiff competition from the likes of Apple, Sony, Samsung, Nokia and BlackBerry.
The Taiwanese-made model also won the T3 design award and the ‘phone of the year’ accolade at a ceremony in London  3rd of Oct 2013.
It beat the Apple iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S4 in the phone of the year category, chipping at the dominance held by both technology giants.
The Android smartphone is set apart from competitors’ handsets by its dual frontal stereo speakers powered by built-in amplifiers and ‘BlinkFeed’ that streams live content onto one screen.
It also has a gorgeously thin, reassuringly rigid aluminium body bonded to the 4.7-inch screen by a technique that doesn’t leave a single gap. And speaking of the screen, it’s eyeball-piercingly sharp, with a 1080p full HD resolution and Retina display-spanking pixel density of 468ppi.

It’s one of a handful of phones that can be mentioned in the same breath as the iPhone when it comes to looks and build quality.
Performance is no less impressive, with the quad-core processor blazing through tasks with nary a trace of lag and the 4MP Ultrapixel camera serving up some of the finest snaps  ever seen from a smartphone.

However Apple won computer and tablet of the year and Samsung took the brand of the year title, while Sony won digital camera and television of the year.
T3 editor-in-chief Kieran Alger said: ‘This year’s awards have been the hardest fought yet. Every single winning product is truly an outstanding example of innovation and design.’
Other winners included Google, who won innovation of the year for Google Glass, and Netflix, which took the digital media service of the year award.
The Sky+HD 2TB set top box won entertainment gadget of the year, the Audi A8 won car of the year, and Xbox Smartglass won app of the year.
