Yesterday HTC unveiled the One series phones, but along with it came Sense 4 (not 4.0 like we thought). Previously HTC was partnered with Dropbox and offered HTC users 5GB of free cloud storage on Sense devices, but with HTC’s new Dropbox integration into the Sense 4 overlay, they have decided to bump the free storage space up to 25GB for two years. Yeah, 25!
Dropbox integrated with HTC Sense – HTC One gives you an easy way to save and share your photos and videos. HTC has integrated Dropbox into HTC Sense 4 enabling HTC One customers to get 25 gigabytes of free Dropbox space for two years. That’s enough to keep more than 10,000 high-quality photos. Dropbox is also integrated throughout HTC Sense 4, so it’s easy to edit, save and share your documents and other kinds of files.
This is going to be pretty handy given Sense 4′s new features. HTC is including ImageSense with their new devices and is designed to give “perfect shots – every time.” Not only is it capable of snapping a photo in just 0.7 seconds with a 0.2 second auto-focus, it also adjusts flash brightness according to your subjects distance from the lens. Sense 4 even adds a three-finger swipe gesture for sending media to the newly announced Media Link, deeper Beats audio integration, and seamless syncing to your iTunes account.
Reports are showing that all these features will be included when current handsets receive the Sense 4 update, and are included in the newly announced One series devices. As many of you know, the future of storage is definitely located in the cloud. Keeping all your music, videos, and documents on your device can not only take up most of your storage space, it has a tendency to bog down performance. This is a refreshing move from HTC and one that will definitely appeal to new handset buyers. Good move HTC.
