HTC ONE M8
Pros, Cons and Promises
My track record
This phone is....
Classy, practical and powerful!
Here is why
The HTC One M8's sumptuous aluminum body makes a beautiful background for this top-flight smartphone's brilliant 5-inch display. It runs on a powerful quad-core processor and Android KitKat, the stereo speakers deliver excellent sound, and the depth-sensing camera brings a ton of useful features.
The HTC One M8 must compete head-to-head against its arch rival's freshest mobile machine, the Samsung Galaxy S5, and compete it does. Aesthetically speaking, the HTC One M8 runs rings around the GS5 with its elegant and intuitive Sense interface. What's more, though the M8 may lack every bell and whistle that Samsung packs into its phones, it matches the GS5 on almost every feature that really matters, from processing speed to user interface.
Additionally the M8 sports a pair of powerful stereo speakers that flank the display. Also branded by HTC as BoomSound, these front-firing grilles belt out a ton of sound, at least for a mobile phone. Even better, the M8 is definitely louder and produces sound with way more presence than last year's model. It's to be expected, since HTC says it enhanced the M8's BoomSound audio system by cranking up the volume by 25 percent and improved its frequency range.
In addition to it's amazing features one of thing that I really like and that sets it apart from other phones is the blinkfeed. Blinkfeed is the homepage for most htc phones, it displays feed from your accounts and selected newspapers or magazines.
With a full HD resolution (1,920x1,080 pixels), photos, video, and text were also crisp on the phone's screen even if it has a marginally lower pixel density than the original One (which had the same number of pixels on a smaller 4.7-inch screen). All this adds up to a display that does justice to any visual content you choose to enjoy on the M8.
Premium design isn't the only ace in the One M8's hand. The handset runs Google's Android 4.4.2 operating system, the latest iteration from the tech giant. KitKat brings a cleaner, less cluttered layout, tighter integration with Google search, plus faster performance (especially on devices with lower specs). Layered on top of that is HTC's most recent revamp of its Sense UI, version 6. As you'd expect from a smartphone churning such modern mobile software, the M8 has access to all of Google's bells and whistles.
Elegant style, raw power, and sophisticated features make the HTC One M8 an excellent smartphone choice.
