One for the road. It is once again time for new high-end smartphones and we start with the review of the HTC One M8 with the brand-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC. We could read many things before the launch: Sturdy unibody chassis, low-resolution Duo camera, cheating during benchmarks. Read the whole truth in our in-depth review.
LG G3 vs HTC One M8 head-to-head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
With the G3 having won four rounds to the One M8's three, the LG handset is the winner of this versus review. Featuring a superb display, good security features, a lightning-fast camera and being slightly cheaper than the One M8, the G3 is currently one of the best Android smartphones currently available. But with the One M8 offering a more lightly skinned version of Android, better battery life and slightly more consistent performance, there is still plenty to like about the HTC phone. Those unconcerned about the G3's security upgrades would still do well to check it out.

LG G3 vs. HTC One (M8): Duel duo
Source: GSM Arena English
We wish HTC had made more of an effort to keep the bezels in check as the One (M8) is a large phone. Also, you're essentially limited to Instagram photography, but if you want dependable performance, great build and solid battery life, the HTC One (M8) is on the shortlist of phones to consider. The LG G3 meanwhile delivered some disappointments alongside its stunning achievements, but it is essentially the only current Android flagship phone with Optical Image Stabilization. The camera in general is very good, the screen and faux metal body are great if not excellent. If LG would only do something about that battery life.

There are two key sticking points, however. The first is that its biggest rival, the Samsung Galaxy S5, brings even more significant changes, including a new camera autofocus system, water- and dust-resistance and a bigger battery, plus fingerprint and heart-rate sensors. The second is that the Nexus 5, although not as impressive, costs $500 less. The HTC One (M8) is a cracking smartphone, and is packed with useful and clever features, but if you’re on a budget, it isn’t revolutionary enough to justify the premium over a Nexus 5.

HTC One (M8) vs Sony Xperia Z2: Unsafe mode
Source: GSM Arena English
All things considered, there's a reason why Sony's been doing so well lately. The Japanese are looking extra solid in the midrange - and that's admittedly an HTC weak point. With that kind of backup from the ranks, Sony's new 6-month release cycle doesn't look like a gamble. Theirs is the standard-setting mini version of a flagship too. OK, that's a good few things HTC can learn. But with the HTC One (M8), it is still perfectly able to prove that building a proper flagship isn't one of them.

With its sexy all-aluminum chassis, gorgeous 5-inch display and strong battery life, the One M8 is easily one of the best Android phones on the planet. It's overall speed, powerful BoomSound speakers and slick Duo Camera only add to the handset's wow factor. Samsung's equally impressive Galaxy S5 offers more features, including a built-in heart-rate monitor and fingerprint reader, but its plastic design is a letdown.

LG G3 vs HTC One M8 comparison: best smartphone display takes on fastest, most stylish phone
Source: PC Advisor English
It's difficult to be entirely prescriptive without fully testing the LG G3, but this much we can say: both the HTC One M8 and the LG G3 are great handsets, and they will cost around the same. They are fast and well built, they run full (recent) versions of Android, and offer great storage expansion. On the one hand the LG G3 definitely has the better display, but we feel that the HTC One M8 is likely to have the better camera, and is arguably better looking. Ultimately your decision will be personal. For me I'd opt for the HTC One M8 simply because it looks and feels so great, and I care more about build than display quality. Your decision may differ!

90% HTC One M8 review: Easily the most premium ‘Droid in the market
Source: Tech2.in.com English
It’s tough to pick the best out of the current three flagships as they are far from all-rounders. The Sony Xperia Z2 probably comes closest to being the jack of all trades but its current price is a bit of a put off. Also, the LG G3 launch is just around the corner and if the rumours are true, it might just give everyone a run for their money. The wise thing would be to hold off on you purchase till at least the end of the month. If you still can’t wait however, we’ve got a 3-way battle between the current flagships in the works, so you don’t want to miss that.

The HTC One M8 either bests or matches the HTC One mini 2 in every category we cover here. However, it also costs twice the price. The HTC One mini 2 will be a good deal at around £300, and it may be better-tuned to those with smaller hands.

Best Android phone 2014: Samsung Galaxy S5 vs HTC One M8 vs Sony Xperia Z2 comparison review
Source: PC Advisor English
On paper alone, the Sony Xperia Z2 appears to lead the pack. With an extra gig of RAM over the competition, a promising stills- and video camera that lets you display 4K footage on your 4K TV, one-touch sharing, listening, mirroring and backup via NFC, a gorgeous screen, excellent dust- and waterproofing credentials and the largest-capacity battery prior to the existence of any power-saving mode, Sony is surely on to a winner with the Xperia Z2. The Samsung Galaxy S5's fingerprint scanner and heart-rate monitor also impress, as does the HTC One M8's Duo Camera, but none is on our list of priorities.

HTC has pulled off a blinder with the HTC One. It’s a gorgeous phone with a beautiful screen, and we think it's a more desirable handset than the Sony Xperia Z. Given you can move BlinkFeed out of view, the HTC One should appeal to everyone. It will be especially tempting to those who crave the low-light capabilities of its camera. Its metal chassis is also a big selling point - nothing else out there, bar the newer and more expensive One (m8), can match the One's build quality. If you want a seriously classy phone but can't stretch to the One (m8), the original One could still be worth your time.

All things considered, the HTC One is a jewel, and it's well worth the asking price if you’re in the market for a new Android device. It’s worth mentioning that Android purists can purchase a Google Play edition of this device, with a pure version of Kit Kat that’s free of HTC’s software add-ons and free of carrier bloat, and of course, free to be used on international networks without pleading with your carrier for an unlock code.

80% HTC One (M8) review: Can it succeed where version One failed?
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The HTC One (M8) is not a radical departure from last year's HTC One. It's a solid update, but isn't new or exciting, and definitely isn't worth upgrading to if you currently use any of last year's premium phones. The M8's major competition will come from Sony's Xperia Z2 and Samsung's Galaxy S5, both of which offer similar or better specifications. The M8 will have to rely on its premium build quality and camera gimmicks to appeal to buyers, and perhaps a price cut sometime mid-lifecycle. Meanwhile, Samsung and Sony are experimenting with (and making big noises about) waterproof bodies, heart rate sensors, 4K video recording, fingerprint readers, smart accessories, and much more. This is exactly the strategy that led HTC to where it is right now, and it looks like history might well repeat itself.

Source: Legit Reviews English
The HTC One M8 is certainly one of the more powerful smart phones that I have come across. The Samsung Galaxy S5 gave it a run for the money, but the HTC One M8 ultimately came out on top today. There are a couple of ways that you can purchase the HTC One M8, the M8 can be purchased on a contract for only $199.99. This is based on a two year contract which prevents you from upgrading very soon. If you’re looking to upgrade sooner than with the 2-year contract you can jump on the AT&T next program. The AT&T next program tacks on a monthly installment payment to your bill. The AT&T next has a pair of options available for the HTC One M8, the Next 12 or Next 18. The Next 12 allows you to upgrade in 12 months with an installment payment of $32.00, the Next 18 is an 18 month upgrade cycle with an installment of $24.62. The final option for you is to buy the HTC One M8 outright, this will hit the pocket book for $639.99. Doing this means that you can upgrade anytime you want to without any restrictions.

The HTC One (M8) Google Play Edition is arguably the best version available, and at the very least, the most flexible. It's unencumbered by any carrier bloat or OS update delays, and thanks to HTC's decision to move many of its features to the Google Play app store, you still have the option to pick and choose features you do happen to like. You also don't lose useful features like Motion Launch and can still access the interesting depth effects of the Duo Cam. Overall image quality seems to take a hit, but it's the exact same hardware, and Google has already proven its commitment to update camera performance with timely updates. All told, the One (M8) GPE is an excellent choice for the design conscious Android purists out there, but the $350 Nexus 5 hangs on to our Editors' Choice award thanks to its unbeatable value.

HTC didn’t need to reinvent the smartphone with the all new HTC One. The handset that preceded it established the company as the maker of high-end, premium Android devices, so all that was needed was to build on this solid base. And that’s exactly what HTC did in creating the One M8; this is a smartphone filled with improvements. The HTC One M8 is a truly fantastic smartphone, and its few shortcomings can easily be overlooked in favor of a solid feature set in a premium body. Well done to HTC for once again showing what its engineers can do.

All in all, I found the HTC One to be an excellent phone all-around. By improving all aspects of the previous handset, HTC has gotten to a point where it got just about everything right (design, responsiveness, camera interface, typography…), and the real question is whether or not you like the design of the phone and if you are OK with the low-resolution of the otherwise excellent 4 Megapixel camera. If that’s the case, I would give a 9/10 review rating. If you need photos for non-web usage, then I would drop the rating to 8/10.

HTC One M8 Review

HTC made my job incredibly easy with the HTC One M8. In terms of beauty, quality, and feel, there aren't many devices worthy of comparison to the One M8. I went looking for major gripes to have about the phone, but struggled to come up with any aside from the camera and aforementioned inconsistencies across carrier models. It wasn't a struggle to find faults with the HTC, but it was difficult to find faults big enough to make me not love the device. My appreciation for the 2013 HTC One has been well-documented on this site, so it shouldn't surprise anyone to learn that my new favorite phone is the follow-up that made that device more appealing. The HTC One M8 is the best Android phone at the time that this review is published. It might have that distinction for only a few days considering what's on the horizon, but the One M8 is a phone unlike any other.

HTC has carefully crafted a fine smartphone for 2014. By all means, the One (M8) is a flagship that will be in the same category as the Galaxy S5 and every other top tier device introduced throughout the rest of the year. The premium feel and build likely won’t be matched by anyone, just like with last year’s One (M7). The display is gorgeous, the design is luxurious, and the overall combination of software with hardware is something HTC should be proud of.

The HTC One (M8) is an eminently desirable smartphone, and not just for metal fetishists – it’s very fast and (with the new microSD support) more flexible than before. Plus innovations like the Dots case add distinctive flair. My main bugbears were the wasted frontal real estate and the relatively disappointing camera, but the first might have been unavoidable from a technical standpoint and the second is subjective since it depends on what sort of things you want to snap and what you’ll do with the JPGs afterwards. The HTC One range just got extended in style, but owners of the original should probably sit tight on the 2013 model and save their pennies.

HTC has clearly worked very hard on the One: the problem it has is that it's starting in the same place as all its rivals. With the latest chips from Qualcomm and latest versions of Android from Google, it's very hard to differentiate.

Wrapping things up, the HTC One M8 improves upon almost all areas over the original HTC One. The updated design is simply gorgeous and new hardware makes the phone fly when it comes to launching and moving between applications. The larger screen and larger battery are also noticeable and so is the audio from Boom Sound speakers compared to the older HTC One. But even with all these tweaks over the original, there isn’t anything substantially new for me to recommend a current owner of the HTC One to go out and buy the new HTC One M8. Your current HTC One is still an excellent product and you can find comfort in the fact that HTC will continue selling the older model as well as issue an update to bring many of the software related features to your phone.

Source: PC Advisor English
As we noted when we originally reviewed the Nexus 5, it has the specifications to rival flagship Android phones, but at a much lower price. For a shade under £300, you get a great smartphone with only a few compromises. One is the plastic body, another is the lack of expandable storage. The HTC One M8 may have an aluminium shell (and a choice of three colours) and feel much more like a premium phone, but you'll also pay for the privilege: £550 if you buy it outright with no contract.

HTC could've played it safe with the new One. Followed the crowd; put in a fast chip and a big display, and taken the easy route. Whether that would've actually done the firm any good is a question we can't - and needn't - answer, since instead the One M8 tries to push the boundaries of what we've come to expect from a smartphone. What remains is the really difficult stuff. Competing with the monstrous advertising budgets of Samsung and Apple. Delivering the sort of timely software changes the One M8 opens the door to. Convincing would-be users that Android isn't synonymous with Galaxy. That's a journey that will take time, but the 2014 One M8 is an excellent place to start.

Chucking more of everything at your flagship phone seems an all-too easy way to get yourself to the top, but in HTC’s defence it’s not nearly as simple as it sounds. There’s a careful balancing act to be achieved. A bigger screen requires more power, more power requires more battery, and all of these things require more room – hard to find without messing up a design thought by many to be the most stylish ever to grace an Android handset. But will they actually perform better, and will they be as nice to hold and to live with? That's far less certain - but it won’t be long before we find out. Until then, enjoy your time at the top, HTC.

100% HTC One M8 review
Source: T3 English
The older HTC One will continue to be sold be the time-being (presumably at a reduced price), though it will eventually be phased out. But there’s no doubt that the HTC One M8 is a fantastic improvement on what was already our Phone of the Year in 2013. There was potential for the M8 to be the HTC’s difficult second phone, but HTC has done a fantastic job identifying the small improvements that could be made on the HTC One and implementing those. Tiny changes like moving the headphone jack, improving the build quality are all very welcome, and sit nicely alongside the big improvements to the screen, and power and photography features.

100% HTC One (M8) review Stunning design, loads of power and some big upgrades; HTC's done it again
Source: Techradar English
The HTC One (M8) is a brilliant smartphone with very few flaws. Its main strength is design, but I don't think that's a negative thing as many brands still seem keen to race on specs rather than attracting users when they wander into a shop to a buy something for two years (at a rather high price). If the HTC One (M8) isn't the smartphone of 2014, I'm very, very excited to see what the competition will come up with as this handset strikes the perfect blend of design, performance and innovation without really compromising in any area.

HTC One M8
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The HTC One M8 is the phone equivalent of the tricky second album. The HTC One was such a critical hit that it’s not going to be easy to top. However, it is a significantly more powerful phone, and while the dual camera needs a bit more tweaking it offers masses of creative potential. We’re looking forward to spending more time with this phone.

Finally, a note about the case. You can buy a $50 “dot case” with the phone. The front side is covered with holes, and the phone senses when it is closed. Tapping the phone when the case is closed reveals the current time and weather in a large, retro-pixel, format through the case. It’s pretty cool. But when you open the case, it doesn’t fold completely back on itself. That makes it awkward in a way I could forgive on a $10 or $20 case. But at $50, that shouldn’t be happening.

HTC One (M8): First impressions
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
HTC has also included a 2600mAh battery with the One (M8) and thrown in a 'Extreme Power Saving Mode' that basically turns into a touchscreen feature phone, as users only have access to calls, messaging, calendar data and calculator app. There are no notifications, data connectivity, or access to any other apps. This 'extreme' mode is designed for situations when you expect to be away from a power source for long durations (say when you go camping) or when you are expecting an important call, only to realise you are on the road and almost out of battery. We can see this coming in handy, if it extends the battery life as advertised.

HTC One M8 hands-on and unboxing [VIDEO]
Source: Mobileburn English
Behold, the all new HTC One M8. Though we cannot call this a debut given the massive amount of information about the phone leaked to the media, be they officially sanctioned or not, today marks the first time that the HTC One 2014 edition has been shown in an official capacity. That show was uneventful but encouraging.

As well as a performance boost from the quad-core SnapDragon 801 processor, there's also a new co-processor which lets the One M8 perform some nice tricks. One is the ability to monitor your movements as you travel, logging your activity in the pre-loaded Fitbit app.

80% HTC One M8 review: More metal, same limited detail UltraPixel camera
Source: Zdnet.com English
I spent the last five days using the new HTC One M8 and, while the design is excellent, I am not a fan of the UltraPixel camera and software effects. You will be able to order from all three major US carriers today with T-Mobile sitting on the sidelines until April.

New HTC One M8 2014 vs iPhone 5s comparison review: Hyped HTC One m8 doesn't convince as an iPhone killer
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
Is the HTC One m8 good enough to topple the iPhone 5s? The remarkable media hype the smartphone has received in the past couple of days has been astonishing, but we're not convinced. It's a nice phone - both phones are sleek, powerful devices with numerous technological advances on their sides - but we'd want more to persuade us to leave behind the comforts of iOS.

The HTC One M8 is every bit as awesome as its predecessor and more. The metal design and larger screen are absolutely gorgeous, and the BoomSound speakers trounce the competition. The new Duo Camera adds some fun to the photo-taking experience, even if the image quality still trails the iPhone 5s.

But there’s no doubt that the HTC One M8 is a fantastic improvement on what was already our Phone of the Year in 2013. In short, the HTC One M8 does everything you could possibly ask of a high-end smartphone, and does it incredibly well. We’ll be updating this review with more opinions over the next few days, but for the moment, this is undoubtedly a top quality phone and we can’t imagine finding anything that’s likely to knock a star off.

The HTC One M8 is the latest HTC flagship smartphone with considerable upgrades and little to dislike about. The design of the phone is the first thing many users will be pulled in by. HTC has stuck marvellously to the principle of non-plastic phone design. 90% of the frame is now made of brushed metal aluminium and it feels extremely good to the touch. It weighs in at 160 g with a 5.0 inch FullHD 1080p screen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The hardware comprises of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 Quad-core CPU, 2 GB RAM, Adreno 330 GPU and an internal storage of either 16 or 32 GB. HTC has included MicroSD capability which is a huge bonus for anyone looking to expand the memory up to 128 GB.

The smartphone comes with Android 4.2.2 KitKat and is powered by a 2600 mAh non-removable battery. HTC has successfully integrated dual UltraPixel rear cameras into the design producing stunning photo taking capabilities with field information calculated. A 5 mega-pixel front facing camera is also available making it a total of 3 cameras. The device includes dual frontal stereo speakers with built-in amplifiers keeping true to HTCs audio quality standards. The HTC One M8 features the latest hardware and technologies making it stand out from the rest of the pack with ease.
