For many years the gold standard of smartphones was the Apple iPhone, but times are changing. With HTC’s original One and the All New HTC One, HTC has taken up the mantle as the best smartphone designer. The solid aluminum body speaks for itself, and it says that HTC goes places where other companies won’t go when it comes to high quality build materials. This year, the inside caught up.
On the inside, the HTC One M8 features a 2.3GHz SnapDragon 801 processor pushed along by 2 GB of RAM. Powering those impressive specs is a 2,600mAh battery. The camera on the HTC One M8 features some pioneering technology once again. While many measure their cameras using megapixels, HTC has stuck with their ultrapixel standard. In addition, they have included a second set of flashes and lenses giving you the user unprecedented editing options within the phone itself.
As we already covered, the New HTC One features the aluminum body that got HTC noticed in the first place, except this time, it somehow looks better. While the sleekness looks good on the periphery, it is actually at times hard to get a solid grip on. Regardless, within that body lies a 5 inch screen with a 1080p resolution. Surrounding that is the dual speaker grills of BoomSound Speakers, another welcome piece of tech seemingly only embraced by HTC.
While it doesn’t change the game, it didn’t really to. The HTC One M8 is every bit as beautiful as its predecessor and adds some quality power to gives this phone a body and a brain.
