HTC One M8s review

 

The HTC One M8s is the same as the One M8, but with a new camera, updated 64-bit 8-core processor, a larger battery and Android Lollipop. It's cheaper too! If you missed out on the M8, perhaps this is the upgrade you've been waiting for.

It might seem odd for HTC to release the M8s one full year after the original M8 , and just weeks after launching the new One M9 . However, the M8s fixes the one or two issues that marred the original M8, and is a superb phone in its own right. It...

HTC One M8s review

 

A cheap smartphone with high-quality hardware and design - too good to be true?

High-quality hardware ; Great BoomSound speakers ; Good general performance ; Sharp screen ; Nice design

Rubbish battery life ; Heats up easily ; Mediocre camera ; No IR transmitter ; Sickly screen colours

Wondering why there's no HTC One M9 Mini? One may turn up someday, but until then the HTC One M8s is here to give us 90% of what that phone would provide, apart from being significantly smaller than the top dog.

HTC One (M8s) review: Better value for money than HTC's flagship

 

HTC tends to the shortcomings of last year's flagship with the M8s

Aluminium body with brushed hairline finish ; Front firing and amplified stereo speakers ; High resolution cameras with DuoFocus technology ; Long lasting battery ; Relatively inexpensive

No more remote control functionality ; Design is a year old ; Improvements can still be made to the camera

Walk into a Vodafone store and you’ll see two phones. One is the M9, a metal clad Android phone with stereo speakers and a 5-inch screen priced from $65 a month. The other is the M8s, a metal clad Android phone with stereo speakers and a 5-inch screen...

HTC One M8s review

 

The One M8 reborn in budget form

Fancy-feeling metal body ; Decent general performance ; Good speakers

Camera is issue-tastic ; It’s a rehash of an old phone ; Software could do with small modernisations ; Battery life is not great

It’s the HTC One M8 with some cheaper parts, but is a decent mid-range mobile

HTC One M8s review: great, affordable, still beautiful

 

The One M8s is one of the best value Androids on the market right now. And it's shiny!

As a bang-for-buck device, the HTC One M8s is by far one ofthe best phones we’ve seen in a long time. If you’re after a mid-range Android,definitely put this one on your list of handsets to check out very, veryclosely.

HTC One M8s

 

Dreadful phone, poor battery life, bad connectivity, camera isn't any better than the m8. I can't say anything good about it. I've been an HTC user for years and this phone will be my last.

HTC One M8s

 

I've had the M8s for three months and am pleased with it. It's a smashing looking phone with a clear screen and good sound. The only downside is that the battery drains quickly, hence the four-star rating.

Got it about a month and a half ago I've been very pleased with the overall performance and functionality. Sadly, the phone developed what seems to be a battery/battery manager related hardware issue. It will randomly turn off even with like 95% of...
