Phil Nickinson from Android Central is busy looking at the HTC One, one of the first, big Android phones of 2013. Of course, that means he's putting it side-by-side with, and head-to-head against, Apple's 2012 iPhone 5.

They're both phones, and what's more, metal phones. I love that. One you've held a metal phone, it's really hard to go back to plastic-as-inpolycarbonate. That's about where the similarities end, though, as the HTC One has a huge, incredibly dense 4.7-inch 1080p screen, front facing stereo speakers, and, you know, runs Android Jelly Bean instead of iOS 6.

I've already explained why, for me, the frustrations associated with iOS are less annoying than the frustrations associated with Android, and why I won't be switching any time soon. But since I haven't been exactly thrilled with my Nexus 4, who knows, maybe I'll pick one up. I had the G1, and I liked the Nexus One quite a bit. HTC has, thus far, been my favorite Android hardware manufacturer. Sense might be a deal-breaker, but I'll give it a try before making up my mind.

In the meantime, check out the video above and the pictures below, and if you're interested in the HTC One, keep your browsers locked on Android Central as they have complete coverage coming your way.
