Hands-on with the HTC One (M8)


The HTC One (M8) is here and HTC is hoping its new flagship device will change the company’s trajectory and give them a fighting chance against Samsung and other competitors in the smartphone space. Like the HTC One from 2013, the new One is build form a single piece of aluminum, but HTC has tweaked the design to make the device even more stunning. The aluminum shell of the HTC one (M8) wraps around the back and edges of the device and it’s curves are more subtle – allowing the device to rest effortlessly in your hand.

The Duo Camera on the back of the phone is definitely the phone’s biggest selling point. HTC is using a secondary depth sensor which allows the UltraPixel camera to accurately measure how close different object are – allowing for some pretty neat camera effect which allow re-focusing after an image has been captured. But the all new HTC One isn’t just about hardware. Sense 6 is completely new with a much flatter UI, theming options which change the color of BlinkFeed, fonts and much more. The customization options really give user the opportunity to make the all new One truly unique.

Below are a few pictures and a hands-on video of the all new HTC One (M8). Since we already have a review unit in hand, expect a detailed look at the camera, software and hardware of the device in the coming days.
