The new HTC One, also known as M8, was finally launched. The smartphone has met expectations in all terms. The smartphone has a slightly bigger screen of 5 inches compared to 4.7 inches of last model. The screen is Super LCD3 with a 1080p resolution and its edges are thinner making it more pleasant in design.
The physical buttons were not removed but replaced with screen-touch buttons, so that the phone itself has almost the same size as the previous. HTC One’s case is 90% metal and it comes in three colors: Gunmetal Gray, Glacial Silver and Amber Gold.
In terms of technology used, the smartphone has a Snapdragon 801 chip with a quad-core 2.3 or 2.5 GHz processor, 2GB RAM and an Adreno 330 graphic unit. The phone has two options of storage space, one of 16 GB and one of 32 GB, and it also has space for a microSD memory card of up to 128 GB. The operation system is Android 4.4 KitKat all wrapped up in a Sense 6.0 interface.
The phone measures are 146,36 x 70,6 x 9,35 mm and it weighs 160 grams. M8 has a battery of 2600 mAh and by using the Power Saving mode, it allows you to use you phone for up to 30 hours from the moment your battery reaches 10%. This attribute is somewhat similar to one that Samsung Galaxy S5 has.
HTC One has two rear cameras. One of them has 4 MP. The dual camera has the purpose to imitate the human eye’s stereoscopic abilities. The blitz has two LED lights, one that gives a cold light and one that gives a warm light. The One M8 does in fact have two camera lenses on its back, as well as a dual-LED flash array. While the larger of the M8’s eyes supports its main camera and handles traditional photo duties, the smaller lens (which sits next to it) is meant for an altogether different purpose. The front camera has 5 MP, an important improvement from last model’s 2,1 MP, which is ideal for selfies.
The BoomSound speakers are a great asset, as they are 25% more powerful than last model’s. The new HTC One comes on the market at the price of about $649 in the US. A Google Play version will also be available operating with pure Android 4.4, without the Sense interface, at a price of about $699.
