HTC One M8 review












HTC One M8: Performance
Along with 2GB of RAM, there's a standard 16GB of built-in memory but you can expand up to 128GB thanks to the micro SD card slot.

HTC One M8: Battery

The One M8 features the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quadcore processor, with clock speed of 2.3GHz. We found navigating around the home screen and menus to be nice and speedy (even though this wasn't a final version) and we didn't see any noticeable lag.
The new handset has a 2600mAh battery on board - a slight boost compared to the original One's 2300mAh battery. Obviously we haven't had time to test the battery out in full just yet, but if the previous model is anything to go by, you should get at least a day's use out of it before having to recharge.
HTC One M8: HTC Dot View case
The flip cover contains magnets that correspond with the phone and turn on the screen so that it shines through tiny holes in cover to create the retro effect. You can simply tap the top cover of the case to check the time without having to open it and fire up the whole screen. You can also view other basic functions like weather and battery status.

The case will be available in a range of colours and we reckon it won’t be long before some bright sparks will come up with some form of 8-bit game to go with it (our money’s on Pong).

HTC has come up with a brand new rubber case - known as the HTC Dot View case - which gives the appearance of an old-school dot matrix display.
Our first impressions of the new HTC One M8 were all good - we like the tweaked design and we were impressed by the new camera features, the improved speakers and we also like the new Dot View case.
The older HTC One will continue to be sold be the timebeing (presumably at a reduced price), though it will eventually be phased out.
We'll be bringing you a full review very, very shortly- stay tuned...
