HTC First is one of the latest products introduced recently by HTC. This is also the first smartphone that has allowed Facebook to take control of it. It offers a Facebook experience that you won’t find in any other phone.
HTC First isn’t a very expensive flagship phone by the company, even though it’s the first phone that features the “Facebook Home” option. It is more compact in design then other HTC phones and has got simple, yet sober look. You will be impressed by the uniform design that comes with all-glass front, soft touch back and rounded edges. All of these things impart light weight to the device and it is comfortable to carry. It might not be as flashy as other HTC flagship devices of HTC One series; however, the well placed buttons allows the user to navigate the screen easily. You cannot access the battery of the phone due to its design. Also, there is no provision a memory card slot in the phone, however, the internal memory of 16 GB is surely going to meet the storage needs of majority of the users. This mid range phone is based on 1.4 GHz Qualcomm dual cores processor that runs on 1 GB RAM. You will find almost all the connectivity options in the phone including GPS, Wi-Fi, micro USB as well as NFC, Bluetooth 4.0.
HTC First sports a decent display of 4.3 inches which is backed by a crisp and colorful resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. You will be impressed by the wide viewing angles of the phone. Unlike the other phones of HTC One series, the manufacturer has not placed the speaker on either the front or rear of the phone; instead, it has placed it on the bottom edge. The quality of sound produced by speaker is also pretty decent.
The “Facebook Home” feature is perhaps the most noticeable feature about the phone. Unlike the other interface skins like Samsung TouchWiz or HTC Sense, you can easily turn “Facebook Home” off without the need to root the device. When you switch it off, the device reverts back to Android Jelly Bean. This great feature is well designed and seems quite simple to use.
