Since a few weeks, we are highlighting the best qualities of the Android brands . While it is true that everyone has their personal preferences, we believe that it is always good to look at the positive points of each OEM, and that the Android ecosystem is rich, diverse and adapts to what users ask -along less in part.
Today, it’s time to talk about 3 keys that manufacturers must learn from HTC , and that Taiwanese has enough to offer the market, despite not being a firm with outstanding sales.
3 key points of HTC
A heavy customization layer can be good
One of the key points of HTC is its customization layer. Although its appearance may seem light and close to AOSP, Sense is a very heavy layer, with various additions as Blinkfeed, own applications, several layers when it comes to customizing the appearance of the system …
Nevertheless, it has a very, very, much better performance than the rest of its rivals with heavy layers , and that is that optimization and that feeling smooth for the user they are always present. Optimized customization layers are a Rare avis on Android, and barring OxygenOS, MIUI and little else, it’s hard to find a layer that really is worthy of applause.
You can have a great camera without a NASA hardware
After having tried it, and as a personal opinion, we can tell you that the camera of the HTC U12 + is the closest to the Google Pixel 2 XL . Its processing is incredible, the portrait mode is outstanding, without overexposing the background, and with an exquisite cut. On the other hand, night photography is also of a very high level.
HTC does not include triple cameras, monochromatic sensors, variable apertures, or other strategies, but it has pretty good cameras, something we always demand when a terminal is top of the range.
Personality is more important than fashion
If something we like HTC, to finish, is the design of its terminals. They are not the thinnest, nor those that have less frames, but the premium feeling and robustness they offer is spectacular . It is true that they are fairly continuous, but when things are well done, little can be recriminated.
Further, they were the first to launch on the market flagships with transparent back , a fashion joined by companies like Xiaomi, with the. As you can see, manufacturers have several HTC points from which they can learn. The Taiwanese firm is a giant of Android at the historical level, little by little it is improving its products, and although today it does not reach the sales of the biggest ones, it has all our support to continue creating great phones.
