The brand-new HTC One M8, which was revealed on Tuesday by its Taiwanese supplier in both New York and London, looks a strong enhancement upon its predecessor, the HTC One M7.

Launched prior year, the M7 underwent much crucial acclaim, and while dramatically improving upon it looked an instead uphill struggle, it’s fair to share that the M8 boosts the feature-set with relative aplomb. The build high quality is the most immediately obvious enhancement with the brand-new smartphone, and thanks to a brand-new drop examination, we get to view merely exactly how much more powerful this year’s flagship is when challenged by its older bro.

As I have pointed out on numerous previous celebrations, I’m not a specifically massive supporter of drop examinations. Obviously, there’s a perverse pleasure in viewing a flawlessly brand-new, dazzling tool thrown to the flooring for the single function of trial and error, yet there’s hardly any real-world value to be gleaned from doing this. After all, even if a device emerges from a drop test without even a blemish, that’s not to state that seemingly harmless mishap will not turn your shiny new tool into a pricey doorstop, yet with that said claimed, there’s still enjoyable to be had in seeing gravity abuse such popular mobile tools.

Complying with the standard drop test layout, the guys at TechSmartt continued to fall each gadget from a selection of various elevations and angles, trying their best to produce as reasonable an examination atmosphere as feasible. Starting at ‘‘ pocket height,’ neither device endured any sort of intense damage beyond a few standard scrapes, and both arised largely unscathed. Yet this was only a warm-up of points to follow.

Following up was the ‘‘ head elevation’ drop, and while both mobile phones still functioned merely fine, there was some serious scraping to the front edges of both tools, particularly the M8. Given the fact that the newer model was in gray, it showed up to show even more damages, yet in actual truth, it was possibly on the same level with the M7.

Having actually done additional examinations including a face-down decrease – – just to discover that both devices can greater than hold their own – – the TechSmartt men did what they’re well-known for, and ran over each with an automobile. Exactly what occurred after that? Well, we will not ruin it for you, but allow’s merely say, the HTC One teems with surprises.
