This Android phone the best product HTC has ever built and now it is the has officially been crowned phone of the year at the T3 Awards sponsored  by Ford SYNC.

The HTC One has a gorgeously thin, reassuringly rigid aluminium body bonded to the 4.7-inch screen by a technique that doesn’t leave a single gap. And speaking of the screen, it’s eyeball-piercingly sharp, with a 1080p full HD resolution and Retina display-spanking pixel density of 468ppi.

It’s one of a handful of phones that can be mentioned in the same breath as the iPhone when it comes to looks and build quality.

Performance is no less impressive, with the quad-core processor blazing through tasks with nary a trace of lag and the 4MP Ultrapixel camera serving up some of the finest snaps we’ve ever seen from a smartphone.

However, the HTC One didn’t win because of weak competition. The phone held off the competition in a year when Apple launched the new, larger iPhone 5, Sony unveiled the amazing Xperia Z and Samsung pulled out all the stops with its Android super phone, the Galaxy S4.
