HTC One M8 - Expert Reviews

Introduction

There is hardly anyone among the connoisseurs of smartphones who is not introduced to brand HTC and with its stunning sequel, HTC One M8, the company further goes on to steal the show! Talking of the design, the company sticks very much close to that of HTC One but certain cosmetic and internal changes have made this mobile an entirely new addition. Keeping with the trend of the present day market, the company has provided a bigger screen to M8 and the overall dimensions suggest that it is quite average in weight such that you won’t feel any extra burden while carrying it all day long. The on-screen view is extraordinary and the pixel density makes sure that you get the clearest of views, no matter what ambient light situations are present! You can either use the vibration mode or the MP3, WAV ringtones to keep yourself notified for alerts and updates.

To enhance your audio experience, HTC One M8 is gifted with built-in amplifiers and an audio jack so that you can enjoy your collection via earphones as well. The RAM and the internal space figures are pretty impressive such that you can easily go for the high-end games and smoother multi-tasking activities. Along with this, M8 also offers microSD card slot for the external memory expansion, which can give it an edge over many competing brands. With specs like these, you can hardly imagine that the company will miss out on the connectivity features. Yes, you are right, for with this model, you get almost all the local and global connectivity features and there is no way that you are disconnected from your loop. Another very astounding feature is its camera that not only brings to you, sharp and crisp images but also allows you to go for a crystal clear video calling and grain-free selfies. To support these features all day long, the company has shipped this model with rather a powerful and stout battery. Scroll down to know the specs in detail.

The image clarity was great with HTC One even in low light conditions and HTC One M8 should really take things to the next level. The secondary camera would be of 2.1 megapixels, which is again, a very good proposition. Therefore, video calls and selfies can be taken with ease and comfort. The battery strength for the device should be above 3000mAh standard lithium-ion if not more, and should produce for the user, a lengthy talk time and standby time. The smartphone will have loads in the data connectivity department including Bluetooth, USB port, Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE and HTML5 browser along with tethering features like Wi-Fi hot spot, DLNA and dual band. The smartphone is likely to have finger print sensor and beat audio speakers.

Operating system and UI

At a first glance, HTC One M8 looks a lot like its sibling, HTC One, but with a bigger screen. This model hosts a Super LCD3 5.0 inches capacitive touchscreen with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and a pixel density of ~441ppi (pixels per inch). For protection, it uses the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to prevent smudges and nicks and employs the HTC Sense UI v6  as its user interface. The dimensions of 146.4 x 70.6 x 9.4mm and weight of 160 grams clearly show that the mobile is average-weighted and your wrists won’t feel the extra burden even if you are working on it for long continuous hours. M8 features the most advanced operating system that is, Android 4.4.2v (KitKat) and so, you might see some of the changes in its UI.

Other Features

The company has not compromised on the multimedia section of the device and supports an excellent music and video playback time.The music player supports almost all the formats like MP3, FLV, etc., and its video player supports formats like MP4, VC1, DivX, WMV9, etc. The company provides HTC One M8 with built-in amplifiers with stereo speakers and a 3.5mm audio jack, to plug in the earphones, so that you can enjoy your music collection the way you want. Along with these, M8 also brings to you a FM radio with RDS, so that you don’t miss any of the multimedia features. Be it the modern generation or grandpa’s generation, HTC One M8 offers a win-win situation for everyone.

Camera

The camera specs are the most astounding features of HTC One M8. Its 4 "ultra pixel" camera offers a resolution of 2688 х 1520 pixels and helps you to capture the moment the way it is! Some basic features offered by the primary camera are autofocus, dual-LED flash, 1/3'' sensor size, 2µm pixel size, automatic simultaneous video and image recording, geo-tagging, face and smile detection, HDR, panorama, video recording at 1080p@30fps and 720p@60fps, stereo sound recording and video stabilization. This is not it, for it also offers an extraordinary 5MP front facing secondary camera for crystal clear video calling and clicking selfies. Some basic features provided by this camera are HDR and video recording at 1080p@30fps.

Connectivity

HTC One M8 supports all the connectivity features that keep you glued to your network globally. Some of these features are GPRS, EDGE, 4G, 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, DLNA, Wi-Fi Direct and can also act as Wi-Fi hotspot, which means, you can share your network with all your Wi-Fi enabled devices.  With all these basic and advanced global connectivity features, there is hardly any chance that you get disconnected from your global loop.

Memory

2GB of RAM is a pretty handsome figure and in combination with its GPU, Adreno 330, you can easily go for high graphic games, heavy applications and smooth multi-tasking. Talking of the internal space, this model comes in two variants – one with 16GB and other with 32GB internal storage capacity – and both of these variants offer a microSD card slot, which supports an external memory expansion up to 128GB. This feature is missing in many competing brands and can give this model an edge in the competition. There is more to it, for with this model, you also get 50GB of free cloud storage on Google Drive. All these figures are bound to attract attention of many customers all around the world.

Other Features

HTC One M8 like its other siblings, houses a huge collection of pre–installed applications. Some of these features and applications are accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, threaded view of text messages, MMS, Email, IM, Push Email, HTML5 enabled browser, AGPS support and GLONASS, Java MIDP emulator, SNS integration, Active, MP4/H.263/H.264 player, MP3/eAAC+/WAV/Flac player, Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic, TV-out (via MHL A/V link), Document viewer, Photo viewer/editor, Google Search, Maps, Gmail, YouTube, Google Talk, Picasa, Voice memo/dial, and Predictive text input etc. All the famous games can be downloaded from Google Play Store and numerous other applications can be downloaded for free from the Android store.

Battery

Hosting Android KitKat 4.4.2v and working on Qualcomm MSM8974AB Snapdragon 801 Quad-core 2.3GHz processor for US/EMEA, and 2.5GHz processor for Asia and China, HTC One M8 is powered by a non-removable Li-Po 2600mAh battery that promises to provide a stand by time of up to 271 hours for 2G and up to 496 hours for 3G, and a talk time of up to 14 hours for 2G and up to 20 hours for 3G. So clearly, even the battery statistics are impressive and you don’t need to worry about getting stranded amidst the working hours.

Connectivity

HTC One M8 hosts many connectivity features that allow you to stay connected to your network all the time. The global connectivity features include GPRS, GSM, EDGE, Wi-Fi, DLNA, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi hotspot, 4G, 3G and 2G, whereas the local connectivity features include Bluetooth v4.0, NFC, infrared port, USB On-the-go, USB Host and micro USBv2.0.

Other Features

With its top-shelf features and gleaming looks, HTC One M8 surely is a strong contender. Its rival, Samsung Galaxy S5 offers only 2MP of front facing camera as compared to the 5MP camera of M8. Not only has the front facing camera of Samsung Galaxy S5 offers low resolution but also does not support 1080p video recording like that of M8.

Apple iPhone 5S also surrenders in front of M8 in many aspects. Where M8 offers 5 inches of screen size, Apple 5S offers only 4 inches. Once again, the 5MP front facing camera of M8 gets an edge over the 1.2MP front facing camera of Apple 5S. Where the former set supports all the connectivity features, the latter set misses out NFC and infrared port.

Also, HTC M8 offers the HTC sense UI 6 interface as compared to the HTC Sense UI 5 interface of HTC One. Not only this, where the former set offers 2.3GHz/2.5GHz processor, the latter set offers only 1.7GHz processor.

Other Features
