Stacked internal components allow a mere 9.35mm (0.37”) thin construction and a curved, ergonomic shape that fits your hand with natural ease. A scratch-resistant display screen built with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 automatically adjusts to ambient light for optimised viewing, both indoors and out, and an intuitive UI interface complements the all new HTC One’s intelligent design with easy-to-use cutting-edge features.

What's notably good:
- Exceptional build quality (10/10) - HTC have upped their game from the original One (M7) by making the One (M8) 90% metal, wrapping beautifully up to the edge of the screen. This is one hell of a premium look and feel; I would call it the best looking Android handset on the market. It feels delightful in your hands and gives you very ergonomic curves. The only slight downside is that the device is a little slippery in your hands, but I'm not complaining given the build quality of the phone.
- SD card (10/10) - Hurrah! HTC have listened to all customers who wanted expandable storage on the original One (M7) - this handset supports a MicroSD up to 128GB.
- Battery life is very good (9.5/10) - Surprisingly, this phone provides me with a good 10 hours of battery life on heavy usage. I'm talking about web browsing, texting, Whatsapping, social media and a little bit of gaming. I haven't left my phone on standby as a proper test to see how many hours it'll last purely on standby (because I cannot live without a phone!), though I can only assume its battery life there would be extraordinary. From my experience, on normal power saving mode and on standby (even with Wi-Fi on), this thing only drops like 1 or 2% per hour. HTC also have an extreme power saving mode which I am yet to test (included in the next software update) but they claim that this will give the phone about 15 standby hours out of a 5% charge.Read more ›
When HTC launched the HTC One M7 last year I was like wow!! Craftsmanship and build quality was the best I had ever seen in a smartphone even superseding my iPhone 5. I mentioned to someone that this handset is so beautiful I doubt HTC can even better themselves next year. But I was so wrong & in came the HTC One M8 and I was yet again shell shocked. Not only HTC had bettered the M7 but crafted a handset which was even superior in build quality to the last one. I am now the proud owner of the HTC One M8 and would like to share my thoughts after owning it for a couple of days.
Please note I will be using the following abbreviations for both the handsets in my review.
M8: HTC One M8 ( 2014 )
M7: HTC One M7 ( 2013 )
Build Quality (5/5) :
I ordered the Gun Metal Grey ( Silver & Gold being the other ones ) as it appealed to me the most. Last year I had the Silver M7 and this time I wanted to opt for a different colour. The moment you hold the handset in your hand it just fits in your palm beautiful. The rounded edges and border lines help in holding the phone extremely comfortably. Last years M7 was comfortable as well but far too slippery and I ended up putting a casing on it. The Grey version has a brushed metal aluminium finish to it and it looks stunning. After going through several YouTube videos & reviews I got the impression that the handset is even more slipperier then last years model but in reality it's not at all. So much so that I am thinking of using it without any case this time around ( even though HTC has very kindly provided us with a case as standard..Thank You HTC ).Read more ›
This phone comes with heaps of features and some nice small features that help even when you don't notice it! The camera (Being 4 Ultra Pixels) is actually very good, combined with the depth sensing camera, you get some nice features that can alter your picture after. The pictures produced are clear, but not as clear when you zoom in.
The boomsound speakers are very loud, I was pretty amazed when I first heard them. Quality audio with really nice bass that doesn't sound too overpowered for the speakers, particularly good when watching videos or playing games. Gives you a really good surround effect.
The software is smooth and looks good, really performs with that high speed processor!
I've broken this review into two sections. If you're a geek like me read all of it, if you just want a summary skip to the TL;DR at the end.
Let's start with the physical appearance of the thing. It is, in my opinion, the most beautiful slate style device on the market. It feels not too heavy or too light, but substantial in your hands. It oozes premium quality, and isn't so thin that it's uncomfortable to use as the iPhone models after the iPhone 4S have been when I've tried them. The screen is less easy to scratch than my S3 was, even without a protector over the top. HTC smartly included a basic case with it which covers the back, preventing it getting scratched too. Why more smartphone makers don't do this fairly simple thing for all their £400+ devices is beyond me, so well done to HTC for getting it right.
Now let's talk about the sound quality. It is, quite simply, amazing.Read more ›
