HTC One M8 Review: The Best (Sorry iPhone) Smartphone On The Market

The HTC One M8 has been teased for a while as being a game changer, but given the fact that HTC has fallen a bit behind Apple and Samsung in recent years, forgive us for not initially believing that the HTC One M8 was going to be an amazing phone.

We were wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

The HTC One M8 is indeed an amazing phone that is not only on par with recent Samsung and Apple offerings, but actually is better than these phones.

Don’t believe it? We don’t blame you. We didn’t know the HTC One M8 would be such an awesome phone either. Let us help you see a bit why we are so high on this new smartphone.


Before we even get to the quality on the inside of this device, let’s talk about how it looks. The HTC One M8 is a beautiful and sleek phone that includes a brushed, metal design that is bold and alive. The curved, ergonomic shape coupled with the 0.37 mm construction makes the HTC One M8 an easy phone to hold and to use.


Just because a smartphone has a camera with a lot of pixels, that doesn’t necessarily mean the camera is going to serve the purposes you need it to serve at all times. The HTC One M8 is specially crafted to be the one camera that you need for taking photos at the night or in other dark settings. The camera for the HTC One M8 is able to capture 300 percent more light.


Many smartphones spend a lot of energy making a great visual experience, but the audio gets left behind. That’s not the case with the HTC One M8. HTC has put a lot of effort into ensuring that the phone gives you an audio quality that is hard to find elsewhere. The bass-to-treble balancing software keeps the sounds crisp, clear, and distortion free.


Blinkfeed is the home screen of your HTC One M8 that allows you to personalize your own stream of online content. Instead of needing to check every app and your browser for the most recent and most relevant information, it is all in front of your eyes at the start of every usage session.

The truth is that the HTC One M8 has these qualities and others that make it stand out from some of the other available choices right now.
