HTC One crowned world’s best smartphone

26 February 2014

HTC has received a major, and much needed, boost, with its One handset being named ‘Best Smartphone’ at the Global Mobile Awards in Barcelona.

The year-old handset took top honours at the annual awards, a key part of the Mobile World Congress expo held in Spain each February.

The decision was made by an enormous panel of 175 industry experts, who also named Apple’s iPad Air as the best tablet for the year.

It’s a bitter sweet victory for HTC, who saw profits from sales fall by 45% between 2012 and 2013, despite the praise heaped on its flagship phone by critics from around the world.
