HTC One is the darling device of the tech world at the moment. Despite numerous delays, one believes that HTC have finally come up with a phone, that not only the die hard fans of the Taiwan company deserves but also a device that truly represents everything HTC stands for.
The metal chassis of the device is one of the most talked about features, and the cold Aluminum feeling for a materials guy like me is pretty orgasmic. However, for those who doubt the solidity of the overall device or even the rigidity to stand against the brute force of nature, here is a scratch and hammer test performed on the HTC One by folks at PhoneBuff.
Here is the video:
You got to admit that the device stood pretty firm and did well against all the sharp stuff. Needless to say, you would obviously not be throwing a kitchen knife of banging hammers on a $900 device, but it does give a decent idea how the device would stand up against a slightly more rugged usage. And the performance of the device, only makes us recommend it more to all those who ask our opinions on the HTC One.
Let us know your views on the device and the results of the scratch test too in the section below.
