HTC One M8 also has 5-inch display with full HD resolution. HTC is making use of Super LCD 3 for its flagship which will be packed with 441ppi. Display is more accurate and vibrant with Super LCD 3 technology and even the viewing angle and colour reproduction of the display is amazing.

    If you are watching HD movies or playing HD games, this display gives outstanding every minute detail in the movies or game. With 1920X1080 pixels display you will be getting enhanced and crisp texture in the display. Compare to AMOLED display the colours produced by Super LCD looks more natural with perfect balance of RGB matrix. Colours do not wash out when the phone is tilted, that means the viewing angle is very wide and the colours would be looking the same from every direction. Display provided in the phone is really fantastic making the phone to be placed in premium shelf.

    For the hardware configuration HTC has ensured the latest hardware from Snapdragon. HTC One too had same hardware configuration but this time HTC has one step advanced Snapdragon chipset for its flagship.

    Revolution in camera is now a tradition in HTC, it came up with Ultra-pixel in predecessor and now HTC has new surprise for the world. HTC has given Dual 4MP camera which can capture image at 2688 x 1520 pixels. Dual 4MP means HTC has two camera lenses which is seen in 3D camera lenses which captures images same like eyes. HTC Dual 4MP camera will have 1/3'' sensor size for wide aperture and 2m pixel size which captures brilliant images. Wide aperture of the phone will let more light to enter in the lens of camera and results with bright and vibrant colours in images.

    Even in low light conditions wide aperture plays an important role. So be it bright light or low light, the image quality is just the best. Other camera features are geo-tagging, automatic simultaneous video and image recording, HDR, face and smile detection and panorama. Video can be shot at full HD resolution at 30fps and also this phone also allows you to capture slow-motion video at 60fps. Phone also has front camera with 5MP and can capture images at 1080p resolution.


    HTCs new flagship will have 2600 mAh battery, which is set smartly by HTC to serve their user with longer operation. Samsung S4 had same battery configuration which was the news of last year but this year Samsung S5 has 2800 mAh battery. HTCs new flagship has good battery which provides phone to have more than 13 hours of battery backup in 2G network and more than 19 hours in 3G networks. Battery of the phone is non-removable due to its unibody design which was the same in previous flagship of HTC. Battery is good for both average and heavy users as it performs fine in severe condition as well.


    HTC One M8 has good hardware design and configuration which matches the latest ongoing trend of the market. It has one of the best displays you would see and the quality is not at all compromised with. It has appreciative viewing angle and sunlight readability with very high pixel density. The high quality innovative Camera of the phone is another attraction point of the phone.

    Performance depends on the hardware which is just perfect and software of the phone is latest and has good look and feel due to latest HTC Sense 6.0 blink feed. The price is yet not revealed by HTC, though the phone is expected to come with a high price tag, given the outstanding features the phone holds.
