The HTC One (M8) – A classy successor

For many, it was the most beautiful smartphone of the last year: The One from HTC shone above all with its high-quality aluminum case and very good equipment. Now the smartphone specialist from Taiwan is launching the successor, which is called "one" again but has the addition "M8" as a distinguishing feature. The predecessor will continue to be offered as the "M7" for the time being.

The "M8" is priced at a proud €679. At first glance, the buyer gets a very nice device for this somewhat steep price, which consistently continues the design line of the predecessor. In particular, the back made of polished aluminum looks a lot higher quality than on any other current smartphone. As with the predecessor, the case is again made from a solid block, which has the disadvantage that the battery is again permanently installed. The loudspeakers are located on the front above and below the display, which (as in the predecessor) ensures an excellent sound experience.

The One M8 has not only increased in weight (160g) but also in the screen size. This is now 5.0 inches, which is 0.3 inches more than the predecessor - however, the two fixed virtual control buttons have slipped from a previously separate bar to the lower screen area, so there is a similar amount of display area available as before. The resolution has remained the same at 1,9820*1,080 pixels, allowing HTC to compete with the best displays.

Another innovation is the microSD card slot. This enables the user to expand his M8 up to 128GB of additional data storage.

The version available from us includes 16GB of storage space.

With 2GB of RAM and a fast 2.3 GHz quad-core processor, the smartphone is equipped for all tasks. In terms of data transfer, everything that is needed is on board, from LTE to the current ac-WLAN standard.

HTC again relies on its own technology called "Ultrapixel" for the camera, which according to the manufacturer should bring very good results despite the low resolution of 4 megapixels. For this purpose, two lenses are installed one above the other in the new model, with one serving as a rangefinder. This makes it possible, for example, to take pictures in which one person can be focused later on, while the rest is blurred or a slight 3D effect is created. All in all, the picture quality is good, but the HTC One M8 doesn't quite reach the promised top level. With a resolution of 5 megapixels and a wide-angle function, the front camera is above average and hits the nerve of the time and is absolutely "selfie-capable".

HTC has added its revised "Sense 6" user interface to Android Version 4.4. This recognizes movements via sensors, for example. It is possible to "wake up" the device by tapping the screen twice or to accept calls by moving to the ear.

Conclusion: As with its predecessor, the new One sets the standard in terms of quality and design. It does not show any weaknesses in everyday life so you can recommend it with a clear conscience without reservation. The only "disadvantage": is the price.

You can currently order the new HTC One (M8) on Amazon as a top offer.

HTC One (M8) smartphone (12.7 cm (5 inches) LCD display, quad-core, 2.3GHz, 2GB RAM, 5-megapixel front camera, FM radio, Android 4.4.2) metal grey.
