Of all the android phones available in the market, the newly launched HTC One M8 probably stands out. In fact, last year the HTC One won many accolades, but failed to make an impact while competing with the Apple’s iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy.
The new HTC One M8 has a number of plus points though. The phone has an excellent metal design with the back edges having lovely curved designs. The BlinkFeed is another top draw of the HTC One M8 as it combines news, events and social-networking updates into one feed.
The HTC ONE M8 is powered with an Android 4.4.2 KitKat, the latest of the Operating systems with HTC’s Sense 6.0 UI on top.
The phone also includes on-screen buttons for navigation. It also comes with some new features like the double tap to lock and unlock the phone, slide to right to unlock to BlinkFeed, and slide to left to unlock to the home-screen.
One of the super highlights of the HTC One M8 is the phone’s new UltraPixel Duo camera at the back. This the company claims can help capture 300 percent more light and the second camera lens helps in detecting and separating backgrounds and foregrounds.
Battery life is also a big draw of the new HTC One M8. This was one problem with the old HTC One. The HTC One M8, however, is said to have 40 per cent better battery life. It’s also pertinent to note that other than the standard power saver mode; ‘Extreme power saver’ mode will shut down all communications except calls, text and emails. This is likely to help conserve battery power.
HTC One (M8) is powered by a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor and 2GB RAM. The phone will be available in 16GB and 32GB internal storage variants.
The phone will cost around $200 to $250 with a two-year service contract. Customers have a choice to choose between gray, gold or silver.
