Facebook made waves when it announced its new mobile service, Facebook Home, which replaces the native launcher on Android devices with a beautiful, full-screen News Feed for a home screen. For avid Facebook users, Facebook Home has tons of value proposition, and it solves one of Facebook’s most outstanding problems – monetizing mobile.
The company teamed up with HTC to bring the first smartphone pre-packaged with Facebook Home, the First. With a 4.3-inch Super LCD 720p display, 1GB RAM, 16GB fixed storage with no expansion, a 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.4GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 chip and a 2,000mAh battery, the HTC First is undoubtedly a mid-range device. But it’s certainly unique, and it has a few tricks up its sleeve that has caught the attention of stock Android enthusiasts all around. Not to mention, it’s small stature is a bold move in a market with high-end smartphones constantly growing larger and larger. This, too, has turned some heads, particularly the heads of those turned off by XXL smartphones.
Check out the video below and see what makes Facebook Home on the HTC First slightly different!
