HTC One (M8)

Which flagship phone is for you?

If we were to talk pure specs, the HTC One (M8) wouldn’t stand out in numbers. Because a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 5in 1920x1080 resolution display and a storage of 16/32GB that’s expandable to 128GB is similar to what every other smartphone brings to the table. But this phone must be seen and held in the flesh, or rather metal, to be believed; it leads the Android pack with its premium looks that’s backed up by equally premium material. In short, it's not plastic.

What’s hot: Choosing to defy convention, the HTC One (M8) is going the way of sensorship by adding a dedicated depth sensor to its former 4.1 UltraPixel sensor, creating what it has termed the Duo camera for incredible bokeh shots. Oh, and it still does extremely well in low light conditions.

What’s not: That name. Those brackets. Can we do more for product differentiation when the specs are clearly not that big of an upgrade?
