It’s hard to keep up with all the new mobile devices that flood the news every single day. Smartphones, tablets, apps, phablets, games and so on. But once in a while the pretentious mobile world gets very excited when something they’ve been waiting for some time is finally released. That’s the case with the new HTC One M8 smartphone that seems to be a serious competitor for Samsung Galaxy S5 and the superstar iPhone 6.
The Taiwanese company’s new baby is an improved version of the previous HTC One, especially when it comes to the “look” of it. It features an aluminum body that’s bigger and heavier than the last smartphone model. The HTC One M8 comes with a 4.7-5 inches screen and weighs around 160g. The processor is a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon, the display is a 5inch Super LCD 3 full HD with 1080p that’s protected by a Gorilla Glass 3 cover. The HTC One M8 gives you 16GB or 32GB of internal storage and an impressive support to up to 128GB with the microSDXC slot. There is a 2GB DDR2 RAM and you can connect it to any 2G, 3G and 4G networks. Other connectivity options include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX. The front camera is a 5MP dual lens Duo Camera and the battery has 2,600 mAh.
HTC One M8 smartphone – other features
The new HTC smartphone comes with improved speakers (BoomSound system) which gives it a louder, clearer sound. Another great thing about the HTC One M8 is the improved Sense 6 that extends the battery life by disabling any other data except for voice calls, text messages and email. HTC said that with only 5% of battery the phone will last up to 15 hours.
The HTC One M8 costs £529.95 and it’s available in Metallic Grey, Arctic Silver or Gold.
