The best just got better with the HTC One M8. It really is that good.
The successor to the 2013 HTC One, the One M8 is a powerhouse of a smartphone, with a better camera, better battery, better sound and much, much more.
Pick up the HTC One M8 and you know instantly this is a premium handset. With a wrap-around unibody frame that's curved to sit comfortably in your palm, it's great to look at and feels great too. At 9.35mm thick, it's super slim too.
But don't think that means less in the way of features. In fact, HTC has served up more of everything. Nowhere is that more evident than in the One M8's fantastic UltraPixel Duo Camera, which packs pixels twice the average size to allow you to capture 300% more light. The result is brilliant colours and incredible results in low-light conditions, so that snaps of great nights out are every bit as vibrant as you remember them.
We think you'll love the UFocus feature too. This one-touch refocussing function lets you bring objects into focus before or after you take a photo. Want to get creative? Try the 12 terrific filters you can add to photos or mini movies.
And if you're keen on panoramic photography, the One M8 has got that covered too. With Pan 360 you can even get amazing 360-degree images, while easy-to-use tilt controls make it simple to capture the big picture.
But the HTC One M8 is much more than an excellent cameraphone. It's an entertainment powerhouse too. That's thanks to its glorious five-inch screen that makes it superb for enjoying movies and gaming on the go. And that's before you get to the revolutionary BoomSound speakers.
Capable of hitting volume of 95dB, built-in amps ensure a rich, full sound whatever it is you're listening to. Meanwhile, anti-distortion software ensures a clean mix, while temperature-sensing technology guarantees the equipment doesn't overheat.
The One M8 also ushers in HTC's latest BlinkFeed software. This serves up live news and social media updates to your homescreen. Best of all, you can set it up so you get up-to-the-minute news about everything and anything you're interested in, whether that's your favourite sports team, a hobby of yours or current affairs.
Other features of the One M8 include complete phone and TV integration with Sense TV, allowing you to use your handset as a remote, a long-life battery, handy power-saving mode, the latest Android 4.4 KitKat software, a massive array of apps and games to choose from and 16GB of internal storage. This can be boosted further by adding a microSD card.
