The display is HD, although not Full HD like the company's flagship HTC One. It'll show you 720p video, which is reasonable for a screen this big.

It's a curvy, plastic chassis in the vein of the iPhone 5C.

It's packing HTC's brilliantly named Boomsound tech -- perfect for annoying fellow passengers on public transport.
