Date Written: 04/11/14

HTC recently released their latest flagship smartphone, the One M8. The new One features one of the best designs on the market. Similar to its predecessor, it features a metal exterior, front-facing speakers, and a smooth rounded back. It comes in gold, silver, and gunmetal and features a five-inch 1080p display.

Internally the new One runs a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor and offers 2GB of memory. It has performed well in speed tests matched up with some of the best smartphones on the market. The M8 also features 2 cameras on the back (to allow for more depth in photos) and a 5 MP camera on the front of the device. The new One also received a big boost in battery life from the previous model. HTC actually claims a 40% boost in battery life. It also features a Power Saving mode that disables non-essential apps to give you that extra battery boost.

Overall, the new HTC One M8 is one of the top smartphones available and will compete with the likes of the iPhone 5S and the new Samsung Galaxy S5 (released tomorrow). It lacks any ‘Wow’ features, but is a very well-rounded phone with a great design. The HTC One M8 is available for $199 with a two year contract and $649 off contract.
