100% HTC One review
Source: Expert Reviews English
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.

Source: Techradar English
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.

The HTC One is up there with the very best smartphones on the market today. It has superb performance, and excellent build quality spoiled only slightly by running hot in use. 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. The interface might be an acquired taste for some, and we weren't overly impressed with the camera. It's not perfect, but alongside the Xperia Z and iPhone 5 this is about as good a phone as you can buy.

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.

HTC Sense 5.0, with its Blinkfeed feature, adds flavor to the stock Android OS. And while Samsung's TouchWiz software offers more features, Sense has a cleaner look and feel and suffers from less lag.

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.

80% HTC One mini review - smaller, lighter, much cheaper HTC One
Source: PC Advisor English
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.

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

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.

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?

Whether or not you want a phone this big is a matter of personal taste. If you have a 6in smartphone you really don’t need a tablet, as a phone this size is perfectly big enough for casual web surfing. However, it does poke out the top of a jeans pocket, and you'll find you often can’t sit comfortably without taking the phone out and putting it on a table. It's also not particularly comfortable to hold for long phone calls, and it's not really practical to use the touchscreen one-handed.

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.

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

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.

HTC One M8

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.

Weighing in on what the HTC One M9 delivers over its predecessor in the HTC One M8, we continue to find the good and bad in it. Starting with the former, the M9 is still a darling gem with its meticulous and premium design – even though there are minor changes in tow with it, which we find to be logical in decision. The hardware, too, receives the customary upgrades in the form of Qualcomm’s latest piece of silicon, more RAM, and a beefier 20-megapixel camera. On the software side, the approach is unequivocally the same with the rest of the phone, as the enhancements in tow make it evolutionary by default.

More of an iterative upgrade than a must-have change. Evolution rather than revolution. The HTC One M9 is an improved version of the already excellent HTC One M8.

HTC's best ever smartphone: which makes it pretty great.

The HTC One M8 is a difficult handset to judge. On the one hand, you have the paradox of a device where the emphasis is very much on the good-looking exterior, and yet it seems too fragile to survive for long without cladding it in a protective case – a move which effectively undermines all that visual flair in one go. But, is that enough to counter all the other positive stuff?

Like the Samsung Galaxy S5, the HTC One M8 has an 'Extreme Power Saving mode' which the firm says will ensure the handset lasts up to 30 hours from 10 percent charge – that's six hours more than the Galaxy S5 in its comparable mode. You're limited to phone calls, texts, emails and the calendar and calculator apps. We tried enabling it with 9 percent battery remaining and there was still charge a full 24 hours later, albeit with very minimal use. As an emergency mode, it's great.

If we take size out of the equation, though, the Note 4 has a clearly pronounced advantage: its brilliant Quad HD display is a beauty to behold with its accuracte colors, while the screen on the M8 does not look bad, but lacks that color fidelity, then, the Snapdragon 805 system chip on the Note 4 is an improvement over the 801 on the M8, and finally, the 16-megapixel optically stabilized camera is among the best smartphone shooters out there, while the M8's UltraPixel camera is not all that capable. Where M8 still comes up is the stylish unibody aluminum body, but hardware-wise it is just not as impressive.

Ultimately your choice will be a subjective one on design and build, with the added spice that the Xperia Z3 probably marginally shades the objective comparison - but you can get the HTC One M8 a little cheaper.

iPhone 6 vs HTC One M8 comparison: The HTC One M8 has Apple's style, but can do no more than match the iPhone 6's performance
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
Our iPhone 6 vs HTC One M8 comparison shows us that Android phones are now every bit as capable as iPhones, although not in this case sufficiently different or better to make us want to switch. The HTC One M8 enjoys excellence in design and build, is a top performer and has a beautiful display. Storage options are limited, but an expansion slot is a bonus. If you are an iPhone user it is unlikely you will decide to upgrade to the HTC One M8 rather than the iPhone 6, but if you want to move from iOS to Android you could do a lot worse.

80% HTC's top-end phone offers a fine blend of aesthetics and performance.
Source: Techtree.com English
HTC has done an excellent job in terms of aesthetics. It's undoubtedly the most premium handset from the Android camp. Along with its pretty looks, the handset is quite a beast when it comes to performance. Be it audio, video, or gaming, the One (M8) does a great job. Like any other phone, this one isn't perfect though. The biggest concern here is its 4 megapixel (ultrapixel) camera that stands no chance against the competition when it comes to image quality. Moreover, display could have been a lot better. Considering all aspects, the HTC One (M8) (Rs 41,000) is your best bet if you're looking for powerful and flaunt-worthy Android device. But, if the camera tops your list of priorities, you should consider the LG G3 (Rs 42,700).

It is never easy to pick a favorite among phones that have so much to offer. One thing's certain, however – whether you pick the iPhone 6 or the HTC One (M8), you will receive your money's worth in exchange. You just need to know what your priorities are when making the choice between these two great models. When it comes to design, the two phones stand in the same league with their meticulously crafted metal bodies. But the iPhone 6 is definitely the more compact one with its slim and lightweight construction. The M8 might be larger and heavier, but its offers a bigger screen with higher resolution and a pair of great front-facing speakers.

LG G3 vs HTC One M8 head-to-head review

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

New HTC One (M8) 2014 review: hands on with the gorgeous new HTC One with improved camera, battery and SD card slot
Source: PC Advisor English
Like the Galaxy S5 and Xperia Z2, the new HTC One M8 isn't a big leap compared to the previous model. WHat HTC has done is taken a great phone and made it better. The M8 looks and feels gorgeous and with important upgrades including a microSD card slot and an innovative camera. This is a very desirable smartphone.

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.

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.

New HTC One M8 2014 vs iPhone 5s comparison review: Hyped HTC One m8 doesn't convince as an iPhone killer

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.

Source: V3.co.uk English
While the Galaxy S5 and iPhone both won three rounds - although one of the Samsung handsets was technically a tie with the One M8 - for us at V3 the Apple handset is the overall winner. Even though the Galaxy S5 can theoretically feature more storage, has a longer battery life and better camera, the iPhone 6 countermands this for enterprise customers by offering improved security and better assurance that it will be able to receive future software updates.

HTC One Mini 2

HTC has opted to shrink their latest flagship phone again. Despite the minor confusion in the naming, it is actually a shrunken version of the HTC One M8 and not the HTC One. It maintains a similar look and elegance as the bigger version. The brush metal rear panel feels premium with the device just weighing at 137 grams.

There is a Super LCD2 (720 X 1280 pixels) 4.5 inches display and it is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The HTC One Mini 2 comes fitted with a Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, Adreno 305 GPU, 1 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. If that is not enough, there is an option to insert a MicroSD up to 128 GB.

The device also comes fitted with a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front facing camera. Besides the above, one can expect all other features found on similar class devices such as A-GPS, FM radio, WiFi and much more. The battery is a non-removable Li-Po 2110 mAh cell which gives the user around 16 hours talk time. The HTC One Mini 2 comes with Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat and would surely satisfy the demands of most users.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha vs. HTC One mini 2: Metal mania
Source: GSM Arena English
The Galaxy Alpha marks a new beginning for Samsung, which HTC may view as trespassing on their premium territory. Samsung may have found a weakness - HTC have a proper full-size flagship but their compact offering feels like a midranger at times. The Samsung Galaxy Alpha has more devices to worry about, the high-profile targets being the Apple iPhone 6 and the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. The HTC One mini 2 is cheaper than all three and the iPhone is the only one matching its metal unibody.

t's a close call here with two very similarly kitted out smartphones. However, the HTC One mini 2 pips it for us with its superior design, cheaper price tag and better software.

While the name isn’t quite accurate, the HTC’s One Mini 2 gets close to offering a miniature version of HTC’s One. If you love the look and feel of HTC’s 5 inch One but the size doesn’t quite match up, we’d look at the One Mini 2. If that extra half an inch doesn’t matter much, the features and build differences make the HTC One M8 a better deal altogether, but if 5 inches is a deal breaker, this is one phone you’ll want to check out.

HTC One mini 2 vs iPhone 5s smartphone comparison: baby Androids keep on coming, but the flagship iPhone still has it where it counts
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
Considering it almost at the end of its year as Apple's number one, the iPhone 5s still stacks up extremely well against a mid-ranged Android handset. Performance is a win for the iPhone, as is the camera. The displays are a choice between big for viewing pleasure, and small for handling ease. The HTC is more robust, the iPhone more beautiful. And storage options favour the HTC, without it being an entirely clear cut choice. If Apple does as some suggest keep the iPhone 5s as a slightly cheaper option, it will not be a bad deal for new smartphone buyers.

HTC One mini 2 video review: A smaller, cheaper M8
Source: PC Advisor English
It follows on from the original HTC One mini and is a smaller, cheaper and cutdown version of the M8. As such, you can pick it up for a mid-range price of around £350 on a SIM-free basis. The HTC One mini 2 looks and feels like the flagship HTC One M8. It's smaller in size and lighter but slightly thicker.

The HTC One mini 2 is one of the better examples of a mid-ranged version of a flagship smartphone.

HTC One mini 2 review: a lovable mid-range paradox
Source: Androidbeat English
The One mini 2 is as confusing a device as its name. With some components dumbed down significantly from the One M8 (processor, RAM, screen, battery) and others arguably raised significantly (camera), this is a device that needs to be assessed on its own terms rather than in relation to its ancestors. The paradox is that in many ways, as a day to day phone, I enjoyed using the HTC One mini 2 more than its larger sisters – the hand-friendly size and shape, the overall package, and yes, the camera, impressed me. It remains to be seen how many of the target market will look past the confusing name, pick the device up, fall in love and end up agreeing with me.

HTC has crafted another beautiful handset in the One mini 2, but we can't help but wonder if it's speedy enough. It's armed with the same processor as Motorola's budget Moto G, but with a much heftier £360 price tag. You do get the solid M8 build though, as well as Boomsound speakers and a camera than sometimes outdoes the original M8's. There are compromises, but its solid chassis makes for an alluring handset that's hard to pass up.

HTC One mini 2 Review
Source: Slashgear English
The HTC One mini 2 doesn’t knock it out the park, then, but neither does it disappoint in the same way that the One mini of last year did. It’s easy to see how a new smartphone buyer, lured into a store by the One M8 but turned off by the price, might look at the smaller device and consider it a saving worth making. Similarly, those who want a more hand-friendly form factor have fewer than the usual compromises to stomach. It’s certainly a much-needed phone in HTC’s range, though only time will tell whether it’s sufficiently affordable to fill in the gaping midrange gap.

We’re still confirming the One Mini 2’s retail price, but we expect it'll be considerably cheaper than other Android flagships. Despite this, it offers one of the most premium examples of smartphone build quality around - a fantastic achievement on HTC's part. Its BoomSound speakers are seriously impressive, Sense 6.0 is as pretty as ever, and its camera - while not the best we've seen overall - is more than capable, and even outshines the flagship One (M8) in specific scenarios.

The HTC One Mini 2 is a solid improvement on what was already one of the best smaller-sized handsets out there.

The HTC One Mini 2 is certainly a good looking phone, and is far more desirable than any other mid-range handset, but when its underlying hardware is essentially the same as a Motorola Moto G, it feels overpriced. The One Mini 2’s camera is a definite step up from most lower-end phones, but ultimately the One Mini 2 is a pale imitation of the original One M8. If you're looking for a great value phone, the award-winning Motorola Moto X and Google Nexus 5 are much better buys.

The new HTC One Mini 2 is a solid compact Android smartphone. While it doesn't have the high end specifications of the M8, it is not designed to be the flagship device. It holds its own and I honestly had lots of trouble developing a cons list for a device of this class and target audience. While the price may be a bit on the higher end for a compact version of the M8, it is still quite a bit less expensive than the One M8 and other flagship products. The One Mini 2 is for the buyer who wants a smaller phone and in that regard I think it meets its goal.

HTC's One mini 2 is a fantastic-looking phone with much of the One M8's appeal. Beneath the brushed-aluminum body is capable internal hardware, even if it's not a huge improvement over last year's One mini.

I like the idea of a smaller HTC One M8, one which is more manageable in the hand and easier to slide into a pocket. With the HTC One Mini 2 the Taiwanese firm has manage to keep the beautiful stylings, but on the inside it feels like attention to detail waned a little, with a sub-par processor and a battery which doesn't do the phone justice. That said, compare it to its size rivals - the iPhone 5S and 5C, Xperia Z1 Compact and Ascend P7 - and the One Mini 2 is still a very capable handset at a reasonable price point.

HTC One E8

The HTC One E8 is the plastic sibling of the HTC One M8. With similar specs but a lower price in exchange for switching from a metal to plastic body, this device is worth being considered by those wanting a high-end phone without paying a high price.

It runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad core processor with a clock rate of 2.5 GHz and has 2 GB of RAM. This means, applications run at a snap and multitasking is not a problem. Even the highest-end games can be handled without stuttering. It also comes with 16 GB storage and support for microSD up to 128 GB.

The 5-inch Super LCD3 screen has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 or 441 ppi. Images are sharp and crisp and also legible in the sun and the viewing angles are wide. A big difference is the E8 doesn't use the Ultrapixel Duo camera found on the M8 but opts for a single 13 MP shooter with LED flash which is on par with other phones of a similar budget.

The 2600 mAh battery can easily last a day of mixed use and it's claimed to last longer than the M8. The One E8 is definitely a good phone to consider for those looking for good specs at a more affordable price.

Now in plastic as well. The One M8 was a very successful high-end device for HTC. Now, the Android device with a curved metal chassis is also available with a plastic case and high-resolution camera. We look at the changes and tell you if the One E8 is a real highlight as well.

The HTC One (E8) offer great user experience. Although devoid of fancy features, its 13 megapixel camera produces better results compared to the flagship One (M8). In terms of media performance, including audio, video, and gaming, the phone's performance is excellent. However, it's display could have been better. Generally, HTC is very good with aesthetics, but the One (E8) doesn't come across a premium device. Therefore, if you are fine with a plasticky phone, why not go with the LG G2 that offers a vibrant screen and great camera for Rs 29,000?

The use of plastic in a phone's design can get overblown—there are right and wrong ways to use the material, but companies like Motorola, Apple, and Nokia have shown that plastic doesn't have to mean cheap. HTC's design heritage shines through with the One E8, which harkens back to the original One X, another beautifully designed plastic phone. It's a compromise, no doubt, compared with the premium feel of the M8, but nearly every other feature that made that phone great remains here, just at a discounted price. The E8 is the One for pragmatists, and thus earns our Editors' Choice award.

But the M8 this isn't, and the plastic design does make a difference. In the world of smartphones that design difference might be diminished by using a cover, but for those who don't, what the E8 lacks is that premium feel you get every time you touch your phone. The E8 might leave you wanting more: indeed it might leave you wanting the M8 instead.

HTC seems to have hit another home run with the One (E8). If you do not mind the polycarbonate outer casing (we don't), it is a cheaper and much more sensible buy than its elder brother at Rs. 33,990. There are options such as the Nexus 5 (Review | Pictures), iPhone 5C and the LG G2 (Review) which are also available - but keep in mind that all of them run year-old specs. If you want the latest and greatest specs the One (E8) is definitely a great buy at this price. That is unless you want to buy two Xiaomi Mi 3 (Review | Pictures) phones.

The plastic twin to the all-conquering M8

The HTC One E8 is a phone that I'm happy to carry around and use - as long as I don't remember than the One M8 exists. It's not a bad phone for the cash by a long way, especially if you're a fan of top specs, but without the metal body and other HTC headliners, it feels like the One E8 is missing something - and the price reduction isn't enough to really quantify the loss of soul that the M8 has in spades.

Aside from a sexy metal shell, the E8 lacks something intangible. The metal sets the One apart from other Android handsets. Plastic brings it back down to earth. Like Apple’s iPhone offerings, HTC's duopoly here is meant to diversify the portfolio and price points.

HTC One (E8) review: Traveling light
Source: GSM Arena English
The HTC One series has at least one feature it can hang its hat on - premium design. This became absolutely critical with the M8, as the scorching hot flagship was outclassed by its competitors in many other areas - performance and camera being the most obvious. There goes the One (E8) - one that has to make do with its seemingly biggest advantage taken away, the aluminum unibody and its slick finish and chamfered edges replaced by polycarbonate. Now, isn't that a recipe for disaster? Especially for a company that's been struggling to regain lost market share, you'd think that moving away from your strongest suit would be a mistake. The HTC One (E8), however, has proven to be anything but.

This handset is closely matched to the M8 and is visually very similar. It has the same BoomSound speakers top and bottom, framing the 5-inch full HD display.

HTC One Remix

The HTC One Remix is a device constructed to be compact and offer big value in the entertainment department. The minimalist design features sleek curves made from premium metal and fits perfectly in the user's hand. The HTC One Remix weighs 137 g and has the hardware to match its beauty: a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1.5 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage.

Storage can be increased buy up to 128 GB using the MicroSD slot. Focused on multimedia entertainment, the HTC One Remix comes with a stunning 4.5 inch HD720 display panel that renders beautiful colors and HTC BoomSound with front facing stereo speakers. Other features included in the device are GPS + GLONASS, Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX, DLNA for streaming media to a compatible TV or computer.

The main camera is a 13 megapixels at f 2.2 and the device also comes with a 5 megapixel front facing camera. Needless to say the HTC One Remix will take stunning pictures with either camera. Battery life is good with an embedded Li-polymer battery with 2100 mAh capacity.

Even as large phones and phablets pop up everywhere, some people still want a phone they can easily use with one hand. The HTC One Remix is truly the little brother of HTC's M8--it's smaller and less powerful, but still pretty awesome. It gets the job done in a stylish package, and for a free phone, that's a big achievement. I also like the quality dual speakers, BlinkFeed app and 13-MP camera.

80% HTC One Remix review: A pricey mid-range phone that's worth the splurge
Source: Greenbot English
What’s also nice about the One Remix is that, while it’s not an exact copy of its flagship sibling, it’s loaded with premium features like a 13-megapixel camera, fashionable chassis, superior front-facing speakers, and a crisp display. That’s quite a leg up over the Moto G, which is currently the world’s favorite mid-range device. The One Remix's higher cost will be its main drawback in the long run, however. It’s $450 off-contract, compared to the Moto G’s sub-$200 price tag, but all those extra features it's bundled might be worth the splurge after all.

There are two ways to look at the HTC One Remix compared to the One (M8): It's either a compromised miniaturization or an affordable alternative with a premium look and feel. I lean towards the latter, even though I would like to see more manufacturers make flagship-level devices for normal-sized hands. With the HTC One Remix, you're getting premium looks in a manageable size for a reasonable price. It's superior to the $25 Galaxy S4 Mini and free LG Lucid 3 in nearly every way. A good alternative for smaller device lovers is the Motorola Moto X$0.01 at Amazon, which Verizon is offering for free at the time of this writing.

HTC One M8 For Windows

Catering to users who prefer the Windows platform, HTC has re-introduced their flagship smartphone, the HTC One M8 for Windows. One can expect the exact exterior design found on the One M8 series with its classy curves and metallic back plate. The hardware on board consists of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz, 2 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage. If the already big storage is insufficient, users can opt to expand on that with an additional 128 GB using a MicroSD.

The display on the HTC One M8 for Windows is a FHD 5.0 inch panel that produces superb clarity and color rendition. The Windows Phone 8.1 device comes with a main HTC UltraPixel BSI sensor f/2.0 camera that uses dual camera to capture depth information. Besides this, there is a front facing 5 megapixel with wide angle lens.

Needless to say HTC is known for superb image quality. Other features on the device include GPS with GLONASS, Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX, infrared remote control and many more. Battery life is good with its embedded Li-polymer battery rated at 2600 mAh allowing the HTC One M8 for Windows to have 22 hours talk time capability.

If you are looking for a phone running Microsoft's mobile OS, the HTC One M8 for Windows is the phone to buy. And even if your preferences stray toward other operating systems, the One M8 still deserves some serious consideration (there's an Android version, too). Windows Phone fans who aren't on Verizon may want to consider the Nokia Lumia Icon 1520 and its giant 6-inch screen, or the affordable $65 Lumia 635, but both are equipped with last-gen components and lack the combination of speedy performance and large feature set of the One M8. At $99, the One M8 for Windows costs less than the iPhone 6 while offering a larger 5-inch screen, more than 10 hours of battery life and competition-crushing BoomSound speakers. Windows Phone users rejoice, this is the phone you have been waiting for.

HTC One (M8) has proven to be as capable as its Android counterpart and that's no surprise. But it's time to address the million dollar question now. The big elephant in the room we have been avoiding throughout this entire review. Is it possible to install Android OS on HTC One (M8)? The short answer is no. Not at this moment at least. HTC One (M8) and HTC One (M8) for Windows are identical phones with the same hardware and same bootloaders. If your bootloader is unlocked, theoretically you can install any ROM with any OS. But someone had to port it first and there is no such project underway.

The HTC One M8 for Windows is a wonderful smartphone that should appeal greatly to the Windows Phone crowd. However, currently in the US, the Nokia Lumia Icon is the better all-round phone, and camera lovers should look at it instead. And when (or rather if) the new M8 comes over to the UK, it will have to butt heads against the similarly excellent Lumia 930 which scooped one of our Best Buy awards.

The HTC One (M8 Eye) is available for a shade under Rs. 35,000, which is a good Rs. 5,000 less than its predecessor. The main differentiating factor is its camera, and after using it extensively we are convinced that it performs equally well, if not better than the UltraPixel camera, at least in normal light conditions. But note that this new model doesn't have infrared, which might or might not be a big deal-breaker for users.

HTC One M9

HTC One M9 is premium. A simple yet accurate statement as the smartphone is almost unrivaled in style. The uni-body back is all-metal and curved to fit perfectly in the palm of your hand. There is still an iconic touch of the HTC One series making it recognizable but this time it is taken a step further using a dual-tone design with polished edges. The HTC One M9 is as powerful as it is beautiful. Sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core 64-bit processor, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, the device is practically ready for anything that comes its way. The Android device is controlled using the latest HTC Sense interface allowing for smart interaction and heavily customizable experience. There is a stunning 5.0 inch Full HD display with good colors and contrast. Another area of excellence is the camera technology with a HTC UltraPixel, BSI sensor rated at f/2.0 able to deliver gorgeous snapshots. Guess what? That was the just front camera. The rear camera is a 20 MP f/2.2, BSI sensor with a sapphire covered lens. Other capabilities on the HTC One M9 include NFC technology, Bluetooth 4.1, HDMI MHL 3.0, GPS and HTC BoomSound with Dolby Audio. The 2840 mAh battery enables a talk time of up to 21.7 hours on 3G connectivity.

Nice soundbox. HTC tries to keep old strengths with the One M9 and does not really change the design of its flagship smartphone.

The HTC One M9 offers some smart upgrades, but struggles with consistency and performance in some areas. Its battery life is disappointing and the camera is not as reliable as most competitors. This remains a great phone, and its aluminium body is among the most expensive-feeling of any mainstream phone to date.

The only thing the HTC One M9+ has over its competitors is its looks and build, which is not enough to shell out 50k for this device. If you're going to spend this kind of money for a flagship device, there's a better performer in the Galaxy S6.

Featuring a better display, infinitely superior camera, longer battery life and costing £80 less, the LG G4 is the clear winner of this vs review. That said, it's worth noting that the One M9 is still far from terrible and features a more premium, robust metal design and higher maximum storage capacity.

Samsung Galaxy S6 vs HTC One M9 comparison review: Which is the best new phone for 2015?
Source: PC Advisor English
HTC has launched some of the prettiest Android phones, but Samsung has turned things around with its slender all metal and glass, Quad HD Samsung Galaxy S6. With a better screen and camera plus extras such as a fingerprint scanner, heart-rate monitor and wireless charging it's worth paying the extra for. The standout downside here is the lack of a microSD card slot.

LG G4 vs HTC One M9 comparison: HTC wins on design, but the cheaper LG G4 destroys the One M9 on value
Source: PC Advisor English
On specs alone it's a close call between HTC One M9 and LG G4. The HTC is in our opinion the better-looking of the pair, and performance should be better, yet the LG G4 offers great value at £499 and boasts a significantly better screen if you want to watch media and play games. We'll offer a definitive verdict once we've finished benchmarking the LG G4.

Sounds like I like the One M9, doesn’t it? I do. The problem is, I don’t like it enough.

So yeah, you probably don’t want this phone. It’s heavy, awkward to use, has a pretty poorly put together design, an unimpressive display and camera, less-than-average battery life, and doesn’t include any sort of game-changing or lust-worthy features that other smartphones don’t already have. HTC played it safe and still managed to screw up. Think about that for a minute.

Source: PC Advisor English
The HTC One M9 is a genuinely desirable smartphone with the best design and build available in Android land, even with Samsung upping the ante. It's good to see the powerful Snapdragon 810 and more memory, however, some key hardware remains the same meaning M8 users are unlikely to be tempted to upgrade – and the old model is now an attractive buy at around £350. The fact the Galaxy S6 costs the same yet has more impressive specs is bad news for HTC.

I missed Mobile World Congress this year so this was the first time I got hands on the M9. Overall I was impressed but wasn’t quite blown away for what is a flagship phone. It is hard to improve on the already great hardware HTC had on the M7 and M8, but to me it felt like something was lacking here. Maybe it was the 1080p screen whereas others are getting 2K now, it is hard to really pinpoint it, I was just expecting a little more.

The M9 just isn’t unique enough to command the current premium. But then a) many people will be getting this on contract, in which case the costs are somewhat obscured, and b) HTC has hedged its bets by producing that aforementioned ‘One M8s’, which is, in many ways, a very similar device, yet priced more realistically, so maybe it’s a case of a design for every wallet?

Despite being six months apart coming to market, the HTC One M9 and Sony Xperia Z3 are very closely matches phones. Each offers a similar size Full HD screen, 20 Mp camera, great battery life, similar connectivity and a microSD card slot.

The HTC One M9 is the third iteration of the HTC One, coming from strong stock: we loved the M7 and the M8, with both devices delivering premium build and a metal body that was unmatched. However, while the HTC One M9 offers plenty to love, it doesn't really move forward. As a flagship device it's very well put together, and sticking to a 5-inch display makes it one of the smaller and more manageable devices. That display is sharp enough at Full HD, although on our review device, not as punchy as the M8 we've been using over the past year. BoomSound speakers also continue to be best in class.

HTC One M9 Review – Gambling on Quality

The One M9 smacks of HTC playing to the HTC faithful: a device that’s designed to answer the lingering complaints of current users, and play up to their design tastes. On that level, it does very well. Viewed as part of the smartphone spectrum in 2015 as a whole, however, and the strategy feels myopic. There's none of the goofball appeal of the HTC RE camera, for instance, which while wacky is at least memorable. In short, I’m not entirely sure there’s enough to the HTC One M9 to address what has long been HTC’s biggest issue: clawing enough attention out of the gate from its well-heeled, well-marketed rivals.

Weighing in on what the HTC One M9 delivers over its predecessor in the HTC One M8, we continue to find the good and bad in it. Starting with the former, the M9 is still a darling gem with its meticulous and premium design – even though there are minor changes in tow with it, which we find to be logical in decision. The hardware, too, receives the customary upgrades in the form of Qualcomm’s latest piece of silicon, more RAM, and a beefier 20-megapixel camera. On the software side, the approach is unequivocally the same with the rest of the phone, as the enhancements in tow make it evolutionary by default.

Source: Phone Arena English
The verdict? We're tempted to say the Nexus 6 had an easy time, but the reality is that so long as aesthetics guide consumers' purchasing decisions, HTC's One line will continue resonating well with buyers. In such a scenario, Google's device strikes us as the more logical pick for the power user crowd, especially the phablet-loving part of it, but not necessarily the masses' favorite.

HTC One M9 vs Motorola Moto X 2014
Source: Phone Arena English
Despite being the newer and better-spec'd phone, the HTC One M9 is not necessarily running circles around the Motorola Moto X 2014. Yes, it's more powerful and future-proof, but the Moto X still holds its ground. To sum things up, the HTC One M9 will woo customers with its sleek build and powerful hardware; meanwhile, the Moto X doesn't shine hardware-wise, but it still has what it takes to be an attractive and affordable alternative to a number of newer phones, the HTC One M9 included.

All in all, the iPhone 6 Plus does tend to have a slight advantage in many aspects, but it also comes with a $100 price premium. If you are ready to spend a bit more, though, the iPhone 6 Plus seems like the better choice overall.

87% HTC One M9 review: HTC phones it in with a pretty (minor) upgrade
Source: Pocketnow English
But only M8 owners care about the first thing, and only phone geeks care about the second. For the regular Joes and Janes shopping for an Android phone, the One M9 still stands out amid a sea of plastic-clad rivals. Its metallic fuselage catches the eye, and going hands-on is like a firm handshake: reassuring and not soon forgotten. The M9 is for these folks – people who haven’t owned an HTC phone before. Like an S-model iPhone, it’s meant to be familiar rather than groundbreaking, accessible rather than revolutionary. It’s no Porsche 911, and it’s certainly not going to propel HTC to new heights all on its own … but it is, for now, a worthy custodian of the company’s iconic smartphone legacy.

Samsung Galaxy S6 vs HTC One M9 comparison: Which is the best new phone for 2015?
Source: PC Advisor English
HTC has traditionally launched some of the prettiest Android phones, but Samsung has turned things around with its all metal and glass, Quad HD Samsung Galaxy S6. With a better screen, a faster-clocked processor and some extras such as a fingerprint scanner and heart-rate monitor, you might assume the Galaxy S6 is the better deal. However, until we've finished our full lab-testing we are unable to comment on such things as raw processor- and photography performance. Check back soon for our verdict.

HTC One M9 hands-on: Improved craftsmanship, camera, and HTC Sense are compelling
Source: Zdnet.com English
The M9 is extremely responsive, the display still looks fantastic, BoomSound speakers perform well, and the improvements in the design are easily worth an upgrade from a M7. If you own a M8, upgrading to the M9 may be harder to justify and I will have to spend more time with the M9 to make that determination.

The HTC One M9 is the sort of phone that we expected the brand to make, hitting the right marks without wowing in the same way rivals are this year. That's almost to be expected though, as brands like Samsung, LG and Sony are all going to up their game to stay relevant in the smartphone market, rather than letting HTC and Apple run away with the premium design awards.

With the release HTC One M9, the Taiwanese manufacturer played it safe this year with this highly elegant but unsurprising device. The camera has been improved with a 20.7 Mp sensor and 4K video, however we still need to compare it to the best camera phones out there to really make up our mind. As you know, Megapixels can help with increased sharpness, but they don’t define photo quality.

HTC One M9 review: Hands-on with HTC's best ever smartphone. The One M9 is absolutely gorgeous but hardware hasn't moved on much
Source: PC Advisor English
As you would expect, the HTC One M9 runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop which is the latest version. However, HTC doesn't leave it as is so puts its own skin or user interface over the top. The M9 introduces Sense 7.0 which has some new features.

It isn't a huge change from before, however, and the software experience is very much as it was, so in many ways, this is HTC sticking to familiar territory. If you're an M8 owner then you might be tempted to hold off - Sense 7 will probably be coming to your device anyway and there isn't a huge step change delivered by the M9. For those with an M7 the design improvements will be immediately noticeable.

Taken together, Sense 7 looks as though it's going to be a vast improvement on Sense 6, and we can't wait to try out some of these new features for ourselves once we get our hands on a final review sample. While the One M9 itself isn't quite as an exciting or innovative handset as its predecessor, there's no denying it's still one of the best-looking handsets out there and Sense 7 should make it easier to use and generally feel a little smarter when you're out and about. We'll bring you our final verdict in the next couple of weeks.

The smartphone industry is right now at a stage everyone's making incremental changes to their products, and HTC is no different. While there are question marks around Snapdragon 810's real world performance and the One M9 lacks some features that competitors offer like optical image stabilisation and a fingerprint scanner, in addressing M8's design niggles and making a move away from UltraPixel technology for the rear camera, HTC has demonstrated a willingness to listen to its customers.

The M9+ is the step forward that perhaps the M9 should have been. With a bigger, more pixel-packed screen and a fingerprint scanner it's much more welcome at the next-gen superphone party, and it's dressed just as smartly as before.

Available color options include gunmetal and silver gold. Keep in mind that, since it is a GSM version, it is compatible only with the AT&T and T-Mobile network in the US.

On the specs alone the HTC One M9+ is clearly the better phone in this comparison, and its higher price attests to that. We're drawn to the M9+ because it is the M9 we wanted to see unveiled at MWC, with a Quad HD screen and fingerprint scanner. But as a cheaper alternative, the plastic E9+ is a nice option with a larger screen. Now let's just hope we can get hold of them in the UK.

The whole purpose of a secondary flagship with a lower price tag is to attract customers who might not pay the premium price for a flagship. On the contrary, they might be able to loosen their wallets for a lower priced device. Unfortunately for HTC, this year, it’s flagship phone the HTC One M9 Plus has not been able to live up to the hype it created. However, with a lower price tag, a reliable build and a dependable performance, HTC One E9 Plus is a contender.

Source: GSM Arena English
HTC's densely populated high-end lineup has a different model for everyone, but not one that covers all bases. It could be argued that the company attempted to specifically cater to different users in a bid to grab a wider market share. In the end we get some distribution of features among a myriad of devices. Each model comes with a set of compromises and instead of getting praised for what it does have, the One M9 generation of smartphones ends up being an easy target for criticism.
