3 Methods to Play PowerPoint on HTC One

A new smartphone was introduced by HTC in New York & London on February 19. This long-rumored handset, HTC One (former named HTC M7), is treated as one of opponents of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4. The phone will be rolled out in North America at the end of March, with black or silver color for choice. Price issues are not mentioned yet, but the company claimed that current HTC users could have a $100 back when they trade in their old phone and buy the new “One”.

  • Android 4.1.2 OS
  • 4.7-inch 1080P LCD display with 1920 x 1080 pixels and 468ppi
  • 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 32 or 64GB of ROM
  • 4MP rear camera, 2.1MP front camera
  • 2,300mAh battery
  • GPS, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11ac Wi-Fi

UltraPixel. A new camera technology called UltraPixel is used on HTC One. Though the phone’s rear camera is only 4MP, with UltraPixel, which absorbs more than 300 times the light of a megapixel, makes HTC One the clear favorite in low light environments.

BlinkFeed. BlinkFeed is a new feature to display social networks, news and feeds to users home screen. HTC says it has 1,400 content partners signed up, one of the big ones is ESPN.

HTC Zoe. Zoe, a photo creation and sharing app which lets users create photos using three-second videos. Sound similar to Vine, which is produced by twitter.

Play PowerPoint on HTC One

As we mentioned above, this phone is suitable to take photos and play SNSs. Then how about playing PowerPoint? As a high-end smartphone with Android OS, there should be at least 3 ways to view PowerPoint on HTC One.

Office apps. Users can find several Office apps on Google Play, such as Documents To Go and Kingsoft Office. These free or paid tools can help users play or even edit PowerPoint on Android devices. However, mobile Office apps are not like Office suite on computer. Some PowerPoint elements can’t be shown on these apps, for instance, background music and animations.

Convert PowerPoint to PDF. If users are on Office 2010/2013, it could be easy to convert PPT to PDF formats directly. Then transfer these PDF files to HTC One and play them with Adobe Reader. Disadvantage of this method is the same as the previous one: no sounds or animations, just pictures.

Convert PowerPoint to video. To play PowerPoint on HTC One with background music and animation effects remained, users can convert presentations to video formats in advance. With the help of Moyea PPT to video converter, a free download program for PowerPoint conversion, it could be convenient to do the trick. 

The whole process takes a few steps. Install and launch the converter, then import PowerPoint files. Set the output video format as “mp4”, video codec as “H.264”, video size as “1920 x 1080” and audio codec as “AAC”. Click the “Start” button to start conversion. It could be done in a few minutes. The last but not least step is to transfer videos to the phone. Enjoy viewing PowerPoint on HTC One!
