4:14 /

Molly Wood and Jeff Cannata unbox the HTC One. Check out the stunning design and top-notch features.

-I am excited to see this phone and I'm sure other people are too because this has been delayed and then delayed again. -Yes and it was delivered through the matrix 'cause it's the one. -We had to get it totally as-- We had to actually get this from our CNET editors in New York because it's so hard to get it in our hands and so it might not be-- and I tell you this because I know how you are about unboxings. It may not be the most original packaging ever, but whatever the phone is in there-- -This arrived moments ago. -I don't give it up. Yeah, this is maybe [unk] maybe. -Like I pulled the knife out of there and then you use it. -But that's good that you left it open so you could cut yourself. -Just to see one. -Hi. -Here we go. -Hello. -Ready. -Yup. -Oh. -Oh, look! See, I love this because they wrapped it all up for us. -[unk] -Oh my good-- Oh, Oh. It's metal. -Oh, I see so it's been used, but-- -Oh, whatever. -Oh my gosh! -Oh, it's metal. Oh my God, feel it. It's so cold and nice. -It is. It's like the embrace of an Android. -Phone. -My one phone has had metal back. -Yeah, this is really cool thing. -Yeah. -It's a beats audio on the back. -It has beats audio that previously like an HP only thing. -It's light. -It's light. This is so gorgeous. -Switching on. -Yeah, turn it on. -I actually-- I'm having hard time getting over how nice this phone feels in your hand like it is a pen, quietly brilliant. That's what it says. I don't know. -I thought you were just come up with that. I was like, huh, wow surely drinking the Kool Aid on this one. -Surely, marketing, the heck out of this phone. Oh, lots to say. It is sort of though this is a moonshot for HTC because they've been losing some its round to Samsung -Yeah. -in the Android market. Okay, let's see what else is in the box. International charger because we have the unlock condition. -International charge. -It looks the headphones are like beats audio red. -Interesting. -Oh, a power brick. -Power brick. -Okay, fine. -Branded and of course USB cable. -Yep, micro USB charging. You know how I love that standards, yey, and then a kind of pretty-- This I would presume should sound a little better than usual since their-- -You hope so if the beats audio branding. -beats audio. But you know, we're gonna-- we'll try that later. For now, it's about what's on the inside of this phone. The HTC 1 has a 4.7-inch full HD that is 1080p LCD display at 468 pixels per inch. Thank you Apple for getting us interested in that specifically. -It has a 1.7 gigahertz quad-core Snapdragon processor and it runs Android Jelly Bean. The base model comes with 32 gigs of internal storage or you can upgrade to a 64-gig version. There's 2 gigs around to power that quad-core processor. -It has a micro USB 2.0 port and a high-definition video link for USB or HDMI, although the HDMI requires a special cable. -The front-facing camera is a pretty impressive, 2.1 megapixels. The rear-facing camera is just 4 megapixels, but they're doubling down on the sensor. We know that megapixels aren't always the most important. And that camera is capable of 1080p, full HD video recording. 2 mobile AT&T and Sprints are all supported, but at launch at least Verizon isn't. -The 32-gig model will cost $199 with a new contract and the 64-gig model will be $299. Okay so everything about this phone is the hotness, the metal back. -It's beautiful. -It's totally nice like a-- performance seems super snappy, but I can't believe I'm gonna say this because the screen is 4.7 inches, but I'm just looking at it thinking, "I wish you were a little bigger." -It's amazing. I can't believe we've gotten into the point where a 4.7-inch screen is tiny for you. -I'm just phablet fan, I guess. -Too small. -I mean, I don't think anybody else gonna feel that way. It's super light. It's super beautiful. The processor is amazing. -I like how it stands up from a crowd too. -Yes. -That back and just the design really says it's a unique phone. -Yeah, it looks like something special. And a little worried about scratching on the back, but we'll of course, you know, torture test it and see assuming that it ever comes out so that we and you can buy it. -Yes. -That's the biggest concern with this phone -in order to get it. It's a help in order to get it. -That helps. When it does, I think they have a contender that we look out, Galaxy S IV. -Yeah. -I'm just saying it. -Impressive phone.
