Watch how HTC builds the One

HTC details various One manufacturing techniques in new video

HTC has generally always built excellent quality hardware and its latest flagship Android phone — the HTC One — seems to be no exception. The company has just released a short video which details some of the One's manufacturing processes and they look pretty impressive.

We go hands-on with the HTC One

The video, published on HTC's global YouTube account over the weekend, features the company's creative director, Daniel Hundt, and the senior director of manufacturing and design, Jethro Liou, describing certain aspects of the manufacturing process. It's naturally a little over the top and includes way too much use of the word "seamless", but the manufacturing processes shown off actually look pretty interesting.

Among the techniques include an "electrochemical etching process" directly on the One's surface that creates a "nanomatrix structure". There's also a custom bolt cutter used to provide natural curve to the casing.

The "no gap" construction means there's no visible gaps or slits in the case design. A diamond cutter tops things off, used to create the bevelled edges around the One.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
