It seems like a similar phone to the HTC One M7, which is a really favorable point in this case. More light weight aluminum has been utilized in the building, creating a more premium feel. The advantages of the phone have been settled, resulting in a much better experience when holding the phone. If I happened to be advising improvements to the original HTC One, these are a few of the things I would have given.

One area I want they had made a lot better in the original HTC One, permit alone the new generation, is bringing the camera on the phone as much as scratch. The original 4-megapixel UltraPixel sensing unit on the HTC One was satisfactory – – nothing more. When you consider that the phone was released within the exact same year as the iPhone 5s and the Nokia Lumia 1020, it begins to get a bit awkward.

With the release of the new HTC One M8, among things I was looking forward to was a boosted video camera. Despite the fact that I made use of the One M7 for a good component of 2013, the camera was without question the worst experience of the phone for me.

Unfortunately, enhancements to the camera really did not appear to be at the forefront of HTC’s thoughts when it comes to the M8. Again, maybe categorized as passable. If you’re trying to find a shooting that retails a good quantity of information within a chance, with appropriate shade portrayal, the HTC One M8 ought to do it for you.

Shots merely tend to look slightly level, doing not have a blow that joineds gos from much better cameras, like the aforementioned iPhone 5s, Lumia 1020 or probably the Samsung Galaxy S5 when it introduces in the coming days.

However, we have actually generated a video review of HTC’s latest main’s cam, covering everything from the brand-new ‘‘ Duo Video camera’ setup to the front dealing with video clip abilities. Do you believe the electronic camera on the new One M8 is good enough to encourage you over?
