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 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 - and one, based on past models, that is unlikely to appear on the Samsung Galaxy S4.

iPhone 5c vs HTC One comparison review: 'cheap' iPhone can't compete with HTC's flagship Android - and costs more
Source: PC Advisor English
Evenly matched on price, cameras and performance, the HTC One wins on storage and display, whilst the iPhone 5c may just edge it on battery life. Build quality and software are of a similar quality but different. But if you have no strong feelings on design or Android/iOS, you need to opt for the HTC.

The HTC One might be the most desirable phone available right now. Its metal-backed body feels fantastic in the hand, its screen is superb, performance is great and Sense 5 offers some interesting new features that you can choose to side-step if you prefer old-style Sense. The UltraPixel camera is a mite disappointing given the ballyhoo made at its launch, but it proves that HTC is one of just a few mobile companies trying something truly interesting.

As we said, this is the best HTC phone ever, without a doubt. But we'll go one better than that: it's the best phone on the market full stop. The Samsung Galaxy S4 isn't far behind at all with its stunning screen and rich detail, but for sheer level of functionality, innovation and just overall effect it has in the hand, we can't help but recommend the HTC One to anyone looking to buy a new smartphone. So whether it's the Ultrapixel camera that extends the range of photos you can take, or the moving photos on offer, or simply the improved speakers bolted on the front (as long as you don't play them on public transport) the HTC One takes the best the smartphone market has to offer and just makes it better.

You can't fault the feature set, and it matches the other high-end products in terms of price. In terms of audio and visual output it is unsurpassed.

It’s no secret that HTC are trying very hard to regain market share from Samsung after a steady decline over the past few years. There is no doubt in our minds that the One is the best phone that HTC have released in some time as it cannot really be faulted. The only drawback of the HTC One is the lack of expandable storage. The 32 GB version may not provide enough space for some users and the 64 GB version carries a heavy price premium. Camera performance was very good though, despite the low resolution sensor.

Google Play Edition: Galaxy S 4 and HTC One Review
Source: Slashgear English
Android enthusiasts can be a demanding group. The call for pure-Android versions of flagships other than the Nexus range has been a consistent one, and it will be interesting to see how many Google Play Edition phones actually get bought. Adding to the muddle is the pricing: the HTC comes in at $599, the Samsung more expensive again at $649. What the two Google Play Edition phones offer is a compromise somewhere in-between. The freedom of pure Android and the freshness and undeniable appeal of flagship hardware. It’s a compromise that comes at a cost, and it’s one with the risk of still relying on manufacturers for new software rather than getting it straight from Google, but if your wallet is deep enough then the pure Android experience, liberation from carrier subsidies, and top-tier specifications make them each excellent, if niche, options.

On balance, the HTC One justifies that premium. The loss of expandable storage is a blow, but there’s little else amiss: it’s a stylish and highly capable all-rounder. HTC needed to come out fighting with its latest handset, and it’s done so with gusto: the One is the finest smartphone money can buy at the time of writing. The only serious competitor on the horizon is the Samsung Galaxy S4, which had been announced but hadn’t officially launched when we went to print. For now at least, HTC has a real winner on its hands, but one wonders if it can translate this into a real comeback.

HTC One Mini

As smartphones become primary devices taking on more and more everyday tasks they get larger. For those with small hands who struggle with the behemoth devices that dominate the market – the HTC Once Mini has arrived. Unlike the HTC One, which can stretch a hand beyond the point of comfort, this device is comfortable to hold and use for extended periods and it fits easily in pockets. It looks attractive and features a luxurious design in streamlined, fashionable aluminum and a cute plastic band that wraps around the edge. The high-end design gives it a distinct advantage over similar models from other brands.

Several features of the full sized HTC One are preserved here, like the high resolution camera and 4G connectivity, but a few features have been downgraded – most noticeably the processing speed. This affects user experiences as it got slower and more cumbersome. However, the screen looks great with bright and bold colors despite not being full HD like the HTC One. The HTC One Mini features one of the best audios to be found on a smart phone out there with surprisingly loud volume. The placement of the speakers is front facing, which means that there’s no need to palm the back of the phone to improve audio when watching videos. At the end of the day, there are only three reasons to go for this device over others. The price is reasonable, the build quality of the body is good, and the size is comfortable. Other than that, there are plenty of better devices out there.

The agony of choice. The small version of the HTC One is the manufacturer's deliberate attack on the success story of the Galaxy S Mini series. The HTC One Mini takes up the fight equipped with a 4.3-inch screen, a Snapdragon dual-core SoC and HD resolution. Its opponent is the recently introduced Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini.

HTC’s official retail price is Rs 36,790 but you can find it online for as low as Rs 33,000. Considering you can get much more powerful handsets for cheaper, the One mini is highly overpriced. In fact, the entire One series is overpriced and we can’t figure out why. If you love this sort of form factor, then we recommend you take a look at the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini. It’s almost Rs 10,000 cheaper, is lighter, has more RAM and support for microSD card up to 64GB, a faster CPU (1.7GHz), a bigger battery and has IR. The S4 mini is no competition to the One mini in terms of build quality and design, but then again, I find paying so much more for an aluminium shell a bit absurd.

Pros: Aluminum design is solid and premium, complemented by fantastic Super LCD 2 display. Decent (but not high-end) performance from the Snapdragon 400. Cons: As neither a premium nor cheap 4.3-inch device, the HTC One presents better value for money. The "Ultrapixel" camera is still disappointing, more so without OIS.

The HTC One Mini was an attempt in HTC offering a smaller version of its popular HTC One. The HTC One Mini may not have the high-end specs of the HTC One, but for a product its size, it’s an extremely impressive smartphone. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a larger screen, more internal storage space and high-end specs, we wouldn’t blame you if you picked up the HTC One instead. Regardless of which device you pick up, we’re confident you’re going to be enjoying your experience for a long time.

The HTC One Mini is a sexy smartphone that combines a gorgeous 4.3-inch display and powerful front-mounted speakers in a one-hand-friendly package. At $99, the aluminum-clad Mini is $100 cheaper than its bigger brother, but that cost savings comes at the expense of some performance and TV remote control capability (which we can live without).

The HTC One is a very nice mid-range smartphone. The phone cuts as few corners as humanly possible in its endeavour to offer users several of the full-sized One's strengths, including Ultrapixels and Zoe. For this reason, while we'd have liked to see a slightly speedier processor and longer battery life, the phone is still a good choice for business folk on a budget.

The HTC One mini isn't as good as the HTC One. Its performance is decent but not spectacular, and the addition of a layer of plastic has removed some of the original's chic. But this is a very strong handset at a decent price. Well worth a look.

HTC One mini Review

In the end you’ll have to base your decision to purchase this device on whether or not you’re willing to make a trade-off in size and for a few odd features for a lower price point. If you’re not seeing this decision between the HTC One and the HTC One mini as a trade-of, and instead simply want a smaller device that fits your hand better than the original, then you’ll be good to go! In the end, this machine takes everything that was great about the HTC One and jams it into a smaller package.

Is this the best HTC phone? Not quite. The HTC One is a strong contender for best phone ever (from any manufacturer) and the lower specs here stop this phone from beating it. But if you have hands that find the HTC One just too hefty, or if a big phone isn’t your style, this is a sensational phone with a decent processor and excellent camera.

HTC One Mini review

Would we recommend the HTC One Mini to a friend? Of course not - it's not out yet. But we would urge anyone looking to spend around £25-£30 ($40) a month on a phone contract (that's a rough estimate, as we don't have final pricing for the HTC One Mini) to wait and check out this phone, when it's launched in August.

HTC One Mini review: Hands-on
Source: T3 English
The HTC One Mini looks set to be a popular phone - as it takes most of what made the HTC One great, but packages it in a cheaper, easier-to-hold Android phone. Although pricing has yet to be confirmed, we expect the Mini to sport a similar price to its main rival - the Samsung Galaxy S4. Stay tuned for a full review...

In fact, it makes us wonder whether Samsung will think about refreshing the Galaxy S4 Mini in the meantime, as it's now very likely to be second best to this little nugget - and even Apple's cheaper iPhone, which is likely coming later this year, will have more of a fight on its hands than it would have previously been expected to encounter.

Hands-On: HTC One mini Review
Source: Ubergizmo English
The goal of the HTC One mini is to bring the high-end user experience of the original HTC One to a much larger market. This is never easy to do this, but I’ve been impressed by how HTC managed to optimize the cost structure, without proportionally altering the original experience. This is the result of a carefully planned extension of the HTC One line of product and overall, it works. In the meantime, I really recommend reading our HTC One review, since it will give you a very close idea of how it feels to use the HTC One mini.

The HTC One Mini hands-down the best looking Android phone under 30k. The phone’s clean user interface does full justice to its elegant design. As far as the look and feel goes, HTC has nailed it. We also liked its screen sharpness and sound quality. On the other hand, its camera and performance are not up to the mark. If HTC gets the price down by around five grand, we wouldn’t recommending this phone. However, at the moment the LG Nexus 5 and Nokia Lumia 925 are much better options in this price bracket.

85% Review HTC One Max Smartphone | Notebookcheck
Big brother. Step one: Take HTC's successful One smartphone and blow it up to a gigantic 5.9-inches with Full HD resolution. Step two: Add a swift Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core with an integrated Adreno 320 graphics card. Step three: Blend in 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, a big 3300 mAh battery and a fingerprint scanner. HTC's new One Max is complete. Is this recipe enough for a podium placement in the phablet category?

The HTC One Max is a reasonably impressive example of a super-sized smartphone. We like the design, the screen and the battery life, but the phone’s performance doesn’t match its premium price, and the camera is substandard. We’d be tempted to save some money and find a grey imported Samsung Galaxy Mega instead. However, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is still king of the monster phones.

55% HTC One Max review: Too cumbersome and expensive to be relevant
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The official price of the One Max is Rs 56,490 but you can find it online for a little under Rs 50,000. This is a very high price for a phone that’s just a larger version of the HTC One with a fingerprint sensor. Not only that, the Max is also very inconvenient to live with everyday due to its large size and weighty body. Even of the phone does get a major price cut in the future; we wouldn’t recommend it since it’s a task to live with and HTC will be unveiling its successor in just a couple of days.

Our overall experience with the design and feel of the One Max was positive. The phone is heavy, but what you trade for weight you make up for in aesthetics and durability with an extra-rigid back cover. We weren’t overly fond of the placement of the fingerprint reader on the back of the phone since this often required us to turn the phone over in order to unlock it.

80% HTC One Max review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
HTC's strategy has been to take a winning formula and adapt it to multiple device sizes and price points. For better or worse, the intended top-of-the-line One Max doesn't seem that much more of an improvement over the One. Ultimately, if given a choice between the One Max and the One, we'd go with the latter. With roughly the same power under the hood and even the same screen resolution, the One Max simply doesn't distinguish itself enough. It also doesn't help that it looks way cheaper than the One, and doesn't have any unique features apart from the forgettable fingerprint reader. If you're more focused on productive work, consider something like Samsung's latest Galaxy Note model. If you like the look and feel of this phone, you'll almost certainly prefer the smaller One. It's only if you're seriously in love with outsized phones and spend a lot of time gaming or watching videos that the One Max is worth considering.

The HTC One Max is a case of too much of a good thing. It comes with everything we loved in the original One, including best-in-class audio, a dynamic BlinkFeed interface and an appealing aluminum design. However, while having such a large screen is great, the software isn't optimized for a screen that size, and the design will be too bulky for many users.

The One Max doesn't have any glaring flaws, except that it's basically a reprise of the HTC One with a few new minor features. Regardless, the device is the whole package: speedy processor, capable camera, 1080p screen, and a custom Android interface that looks like someone actually spent some time designing and curating an interface fit for a phone. It’s still a really big device, however, and if your phone is often a pocket-dweller I'd suggest just sticking to the original One, especially since it will eventually receive the Sense 5.5 update.

The HTC One Max is a gorgeous Android device that offers a beautiful 5.9-inch display, powerful speakers and a premium chassis. And, unlike the Galaxy Note 3, this $249 handset delivers faster LTE data via Sprint's Spark network. However, the Max's monstrous dimensions and heft will likely prove too much to handle for most users.

If you enjoyed the hardware of the HTC One and want that same experience in a phablet, then the HTC One Max is a device we’re sure you’ll enjoy. It has the same internal specs, Ultrapixel camera, dual-stereo speakers and same feel of the HTC One, but just in a larger phone. The only real external difference between the two is the fingerprint sensor, which at times can be finicky.

Let's deal with the elephant in the room: the HTC One Max is big. Big, big, big. In moving up to what might be broadly termed the 6in phablet category, HTC has avoided any complicated redesign and taken the rather nice HTC One and made it bigger. Bigger and heavier. This is a high-quality and stylish slab of phone, but it's a big one. Big even when it is next to the Galaxy Note 3. Did we mention that it is big?

Galaxy Note 3 vs HTC One Max head to head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Having won four of our six categories, Samsung's retained its crown as king of the big screen smartphone makers. The Galaxy Note 3 has a better screen and processor and is far more comfortable to use than the HTC One Max. However, the Max does have some good qualities, featuring a better Ultrapixel camera and custom software that makes it far more pleasant to use as a media consumption tool.

HTC has a strong foundation upon which to build upon with the max, both the One and the One Mini are excellent smartphones with the One being crowned as T3's Phone of the Year at the T3 Gadget Awards 2013. It's not that the One max is a bad phone, in fact all of the specs on the One Max are impressive and they perform incredibly well, but ultimately it's the way in which you package these that counts and in this instance the Max just isn't practical.

Big though it may be, the One Max is still overshadowed by our expectations. It should have taken things further than the One, but instead it merely attempts to cash in on the One's reputation by allowing HTC to claim that it has a "family" of One devices -- devices that in reality have little in common with each other beyond their superficial appearance.

The One max was the obvious next step for HTC’s range. “We’re very committed to being tight with the product portfolio” HTC told us, contrasting its scattershot approach of old – different devices for every different carrier, and for every different possible market niche – with a new age of restraint. The company is particularly proud of the fact that the One max will launch with that branding universally, rather than being renamed on Verizon.

We won't pull any punches. The HTC One Max doesn't come close to hitting the heights of the HTC One. It's a phone that's designed to serve a very singular purpose - give those that liked the look of the One a phone with a bigger screen, and almost nothing else. However, HTC seems to be doing nothing more than ticking boxes here by making a One with a bigger screen - let's hope that the One Max 2014, if there is such a thing, gains something more of its own identity.

The HTC One dual sim is priced at a very steep Rs 53,590, which is the same price as the new Apple iPhone 5s. This is the official price from HTC so you can find it for a little less online. We fail to see why the addition of an extra SIM and storage expansion on an Android has led to a price difference of nearly Rs 10,000 between this and its single-SIM brethren. Needless to say, it’s highly overpriced and if you were to spend this much on a phone, you’re better off with the iPhone 5s.

The GS5 wins out on function thanks to its superior camera, Wi-Fi performance, and display.

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.

Review: HTC One (M8)
Source: Androidbeat English
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.

If the new HTC One would have adopted some of the Moto X’s stylings—for those of us not keen on the aluminum finishes—and always-on processing capabilities, it’s likely this would have been one of our highest rated Android handsets. That doesn’t mean that the One isn’t a total package. It comes standard with a totally capable camera that can take low-light photos, a premium build, amplified volume to aid in shower singing, an efficient battery life, and a simplistic Android overlay that isn’t bogged down with bloatware.

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. There are some nice accessories like a case which shows the time through holes when you tap on the phone, and the camera is clever, but ultimately its greatest strength is the design and that's never turned Alfa Romeo into a BMW beater.

The camera app, Blinkfeed, and several other critical parts on the HTC One M8 are all going to be updated through the Google Play Store, which means HTC can add features and fix bugs on the fly instead of waiting for a carrier update.

Overall the M8 is a valiant effort from HTC - it’s better than its predecessor is all the key areas including display, performance and battery life. It’s the best Android phone so far in 2014 but with the Galaxy S5 set to drop in early April, the M8 is unlikely to hold onto this title for long.

90% HTC One M8 review
Source: T Break English
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.

80% HTC One M8 review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Having thoroughly tested the HTC One M8, we have to say it is a very good smartphone. Featuring a wonderfully crafted yet robust metal design, powerful Snapdragon 801 processor and number of key software additions that aid, rather than detract from, Android 4.4.2 KitKat's core offering, the One M8 is currently one of the best smartphones available. However, with its biggest competitors – the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2 – yet to hit the market, it's too early to say whether the One M8's charms will stand the test of time.

HTC One M8 video review

The new version of last year's popular HTC One is called the HTC One M8 - In brackets because that's the phone's model number. See also: HTC One M8 review. Like the other 2014 flagship smartphones, the device isn't a big leap in technology compared to its predecessor. Instead, HTC has taken an already brilliant smartphone and made it better with fine tuning.

100% HTC One (M8)
Source: Gadget Show English
Put simply, the HTC One (M8) is every bit as enjoyable to use as its name is difficult to pronounce. It’s beautifully built, beyond user friendly, as cutting edge as you can get right now and packs clever camera tech we think is going to become the norm in mobiles very soon. It says a lot about the work HTC’s pulled off here when the only real complaint we can level at its new flagship is that it’s a little bit too long.

HTC One M8 vs Google Nexus 5 comparison review: which is the best Android smartphone?
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 One (M8) review: A worthy upgrade
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The One doesn't have a fingerprint sensor to bypass the security code on the lock screen. The iPhone 5s has it, as will the Galaxy S5. It's also in the HTC One Max (Review I Pictures), a larger version of last year's model. But HTC's version didn't work well, and the company is wise to leave it out in the One.

HTC One M8 Review (2014)
Source: Slashgear English
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.

100% HTC One (M8) review
Source: Stuff TV English
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
