HTC One M8 review: Easily the most premium ‘Droid in the market

 

HTC has a real talent for carving up highly pretty phones out of nothing. That fact has stayed true till today with the introduction of the One M8. The successor to the One (M7), the M8 is an iterative update over its predecessor that refines the...

HTC launched the One M8 at Rs 49,990 however, you can find it everywhere for about Rs 47,000. This is easily the only Android in this segment currently, that feels like it belongs here. From the exquisite looks to superb attention to detail, the One M8...

HTC One M8

 

Think of the HTC One M8 as the big-budget sequel to an Oscar-winning indie film. Last year's HTC One won rave reviews and obsessed fans, but not enough customers to keep HTC growing. This year, HTC needs a rip-roaring box-office hit with its flagship...

The HTC One M8's sumptuous aluminum body makes a beautiful background for this top-flight smartphone's brilliant 5-inch display. It runs on a powerful quad-core processor and Android KitKat, the stereo speakers deliver excellent sound, and the...

The One M8’s battery is not user-removable, making it harder to replace once the battery inevitably wears out. The phone's sealed chassis is not water-resistant, and the One M8's photos look less sharp than competitors'.

Elegant style, raw power, and sophisticated features make the HTC One M8 an excellent smartphone choice for anyone but the most exacting photographer.

HTC One M8 with Windows Phone review

 

There's no arguing that the HTC One M8 for Windows Phone is much better looking than its high-end Nokia Lumia counterparts.

Same great specs as Android version ; High-end metal design ; Longer battery life than Android version

Limited app selection ; Somewhat slippery to hold ; Only at Verizon

The One M8 Windows Phone has a lot going for it: great battery life, a high-end design, and great specs. However, it also faces an extremely tough battle. Windows Phone is not yet popular among customers and it doesn’t seem to be gaining much momentum.

HTC One (M8) for Windows review: a novel new take on Windows Phone

 

HTC took its flagship Android phone, and swapped in Microsoft's Windows Phone 8.1. The result is an entirely new flagship that's even more appealing for its novelty factor.

A third-party flagship device breathes new life into Windows Phone ; Solid, professional construction ; Creative elements -- camera, creative apps, speakers -- set it apart

App gap" pronounced when compared against Android ; Low-resolution camera may turn off some ; Shorter battery life than Android version

HTC's latest Windows Phone is thoughtful, inspiring, and well-constructed. Unfortunately, some hardware and software limitations hold it back.

HTC One M8 for Windows Review

 

The HTC One M8 for Windows packages Windows Phone 8.1 into a sexy, eye-catching chassis with powerful performance, long battery life and blazing-fast 4G LTE, creating the ultimate Windows Phone.

More than 10 hours of battery life; Stunning design; Blistering 4G LTE speeds; Powerful performance; Excellent audio quality; Compelling camera effects

Lacks the robust app catalog of competing platforms; Missing some features from Android HTC One

The HTC One M8 for Windows packages Windows Phone 8.1 into a sexy, eye-catching chassis with powerful performance, long battery life and blazing-fast 4G LTE, creating the ultimate Windows Phone.

HTC One M8 for Windows ( 16GB)

 

Editors' note: Due to their similarities, sections of this review have been taken from our review of the original HTC One M8 and HTC One M8 Harman Kardon Edition .

Verizon's HTC One M8 brings premium style to the Windows Phone franchise, has a brilliant 1080p display and excellent audio speakers, and it's powered by a robust quad-core processor.

The Windows Phone OS has a smaller app market, the handset's battery is nonremovable, and like the Android M8s before it, photos aren't as sharp as those from its competitors.

While its camera isn't best-in-class and Windows Phone's underwhelming app selection still stings, the elegant and sophisticated HTC One M8 is an enticing alternative to Nokia models.

HTC One (M8) vs Sony Xperia Z2: Unsafe mode

 

There haven't really been sparks flying between Sony and HTC. It doesn't look like a rivalry capable of producing the kind of ripples one would expect of a clash involving Samsung and Apple, or LG and Samsung. Yet, HTC and Sony have been contributing...

Looking back at what just happened, it did feel more like a gentleman's duel than a brutal cage fight. Great-looking and well-behaved. Too well-behaved perhaps for an exciting and engaging matchup? We don't know about that but these two are definitely...

Smartphone Audio Testing - HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5

 

Since our initial turn in testing smartphone audio, I've had a lot more time to play with the APx582 from Audio Precision. I've also received far more feedback than I ever expected to on this subject. I have made a few changes to the testing method...

Compared to the HTC One M8, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has a worse audio system. It only puts out around 20% of the wattage of the HTC One M8, making it less likely to be able to drive every headphone to a reasonable level. The THD+N on the 15 Ohm load is...
