HTC's latest flagship phone, the HTC One, is definitely a beaut. Running Android Jelly Bean and HTC's newest iteration of the Sense UI, it packs in some other very interesting software, and hardware as well.

A full 1080p HD resolution on this 4.7-inch LCD screen starts us off.

HTC made a bold move by reducing the camera's megapixels from 8 to 4. Just keep in mind that these are four very large megapixels that let in tons of light and should reduce noise. Read all about it here.

CNET's Brian Bennett takes a picture at the HTC One launch event in New York, keeping an eye on image quality. Though the One has a smaller megapixel camera count than many cameras, it's supposed to let in more light, which can capture more information and make the image less noisy, particularly in lower-light conditions.

You see the headset jack up top, and the chassis' slight curve in the back for optimal comfort in the hand. Also here is the IR (infrared) blaster, the part that looks like a power key, used to command TVs and home theater equipment.
