Before and After: An Overclocked HTC One (Video)

The HTC One may be one of the fastest clocked smartphones on the market. It’s powered by a 1.7Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 600 chipset that puts last year’s chips to shame. But for some, fast simply isn’t enough. Some need more power, more speed, more gigahertz. Some need an overclocked HTC One.

Fortunately, that’s not out of the question, and enabling it is quite simple. All you need is the right kernel, a little know-how and a custom recovery. Flash away and reap the benefits of a processor clock speed faster than the factory settings will allow. Beware, though. Turn up the dial too much and you could turn your phone into a makeshift hotplate … or worse, a very expensive paperweight.

Check out the video below to see a before and after with an overclocked HTC One!
